Arrived in good condition. My version is the 22 caliber version First thing to do when getting the air rifle is clean the barrel. Spend about 30 minutes on just cleaning the barrel. Next, go out and get a decent scope for the air gun. The scope provided is junk but the rings provided are solid so keep the rings. Now after mounting the new scope you will want to use a bench rest (despite what the manual says) just use the bench rest to rest YOUR HANDS which will hold the rifle and setup a target at 25-30 yards out.

Take your Rifle OUT of the stock and tighten up the screws which hold the barrel to the main part of the gun as that part is where it hold alignment of the barrel with the locking mechanism when the rifle is cocked... You should do this as mine was a bit LOOSE when I got it.

You ARE going to need to 'Season' the barrel and the way to do that is to well - Shoot the air gun about 100-200 times at least so have plenty of pellets handy. Then Clean the barrel again very well. I am a well trained expert shooter (military trained) and I can shoot 4 out of 5 pellets into a Dime at 30 yards out with this 22 cal pellet air gun now that the barrel and moving parts are seasoned with some 200 rounds going through it.

I like the Crossman premium dome shaped 14.3 gr pellets as they seem to be very accurate. My cron says they exit at about 800 fps. These pellets also go through 1/4 inch plywood so they are powerful enough to take tree rats rabbits and maybe even pests like possums armadillos.

I can do the same with my Benjamin Marauder in 25 cal version.

Overall the trigger is stiff but is something which can be learned where the falloff is.

The Nitro Venom is one of the finest air rifles I have shot. It is very accurate is quiet and feels good in the hands. I bought the 22 Caliber and although a little slower than its 17 caliber brother it makes up for it in power. I bought the wood stock model which has a good finish on it. I would definitely recommend it if you are looking for a nice well-built and powerful air rifle.

I thought my .177 Gamo Hornet was nice.... boy was I missing out!
EDIT: This is my 2nd Nitro Venom(sold the first for quick cash and regretted it), and I'm still happy!

- Always clean your gun before the first use use and before/after long-term storage- simply run a patch or boresnake through the barrel to prevent firing against any buildup and residue that may be inside. I personally field strip the rifle, wipe everything down with a silicone gun cloth (I use Kleen Bore, works great!) and lube the action just to make sure everything is clean and ready to use.
- Just as the manufacturer claims, it's much quieter than a spring piston. I don't have to worry about bothering the neighbors with this one.
- Deadly accurate out of the box; even more accurate after the 100-shot break in period!
- The scope has exceptional quality; it of course can be replaced with a more expensive scope, but it gets the job done.
- Beautiful wooden stock and overall design.
- The trigger on my first Nitro Venom was fantastic, however the trigger on my newer one has much more pull; I'm considering replacing it and you may have the same dilemma.
- I am a female that weighs under 100lbs and it is not overly heavy but has a decent weight. If I can cock it, anyone can.
- Birds, Rabbits, Squirrels, Small Hogs.. none of them stand a chance.
- I use Crosman Premier Hollow Points for the tightest groupings.

DO NOT settle on a .177 plastic rifle- get the .22 Crosman Nitro Venom.

The wooden stock had a couple of small blemishes. But for the price, I am not complaining. Very good value for the money. I have had some problems with the CenterPoint 3-9x32 scope. I could not get the image to focus at higher powers. I found if I removed the ring at the objective lens, I was able to rotate the lens and bring it into perfect focus. I am still having problems shooting a consistent group at 20 yards. About the best I have been able to achieve is 2". This is as much me as the gun because a bench vice can not be used on an air gun. I have shot more than 200 shots but I am still not as accurate as I should be. I have to keep adjusting the scope windage and elevation at every session. I have removed and remounted the scope using locktight thread lock. I have yet to connect with one of the pesky sparrows hanging around my bluebird nesting boxes. I still think this is a good air rifle. I am not used to the long creepy trigger either which does not help with the accuracy. Check this air rifle out though, it had the same power engine (Nitro Piston) used on several of Crosman's more expensive model's.

Update on 5/6/2012
I had to return this air gun because the finish on the stock was flaking off. It was not a big deal because I would have just refinished the stock myself this winter but thought I would return this one and try for a better stock finish on a second one. The first gun shot well and I liked it a lot. The replacement shoots very well also and the finish is better on this one, though still not the greatest. I would like to give Amazon an A+ on customer service. When I clicked on the "return" button on the web site it was an extremely painless process. Amazon arranged UPS pickup the very next day and sent an immediate replacement which I received three days later.
