It's not perfect though, the sights are not my favorite by any means, but I knew this would be the case before purchasing. I will be replacing mine with a long eye-relief pistol scope and mounting it to the barrel via N272 intermounts. -I will try and remember to post pics and a brief review of the scope setup when I get it set up.
Quick update: A cheap Barska 2x 20mm pistol scope makes a great scout scope for this rifle with the N272 intermounts. The setup definitely improves accuracy and range for the rifle, while still being nimble and quick.
Pumping: manual says 3 to 8. Pumping 4 is easy, 6 is tough, 5 pumps for intermediate range seems enough. 6 pumps will put a hole in a 3/4 in pine board at 25'.
Stock: nice wood but too short for adult men...I am building a home made spacer. Could not find anything suitable from 3D party.
Sight: iron blade sight is pretty good but hard to acquire. Wish it had a bead. I could try to glue on a fiber optic tube. Could put on a drop of phosphor paint. Eventually, I will probably get the adapter and a cheap red dot for faster acquisition.
Noise: less than a 22 short. More "punk" than " crack". Should not tip off the neighbor (one old lady buys pecans to feed the 👿 squirrels).
Generally well pleased. Killed the first bushy tailed, acorn planting rat this morning. Very satisfying.
Now everything I've read about this gun says you can pump it from 3 to 8 times, increasing the power. I'm not a weakling, but all I could manage using the described technique was 5 pumps. I could struggle and "two hand" it, and get 5. With 5 pumps, it retained air, and you could shoot it a second time without pumping it more. I haven't Chronied it yet, but I'm not sure what good more than 5 pumps would do.
However, I've worked out a method of relatively easily pumping it up to 8 pumps. Sit in your shooting stool or a chair, lay the gun across your lap, open the pump to the fully opened position, and use both hands to close it. Six pumps fairly easy...Seven and eight are doable.
One other thing...I got the "Intermount" which allows you to add a scope. It has an 11mm dovetail. With a regular scope (I'm using a 4x Walmart Bushnell), because of the rear sight, you have to position the scope pretty far forward, too far to get a decent eye relief. The sight clamps onto the barrel by means of two wedge shaped pieces that match the curvature of the barrel. and try as I might I didn't see any way to remove them. A Google search told me that you could use a piece of soft wood, and rap the sight towards the breach, and remove it. I did so, and it came off easily, and didn't mar the barrel. It will NEVER go back on, tho. I saved the pieces, just in case.
I've shot this guy around 50 times and sighted in the Bushnell, and I'm satisfied with it. Maybe with a few more shots through it it will loosen up a bit.
Ps: the only thing I didn’t like about this rifle is the front sight was really dark and blended with the back sight, but it was a quick and easy fix, just some White out on the tip,
Incidentally, if you expecting a traditional blued finish on the metal you’ll be disappointed, it’s no longer blued but is instead sprayed with a finish. Also, the model# and other information is no longer stamped into the metal but is cheaply silk-screened with gaudy gold lettering.
What an insult from Crosman.
When I was a kid, I had this rifle. It was accurate out of the box. Today, with "modern" manufacturing, don't expect it. The rifle was not even seated tightly in the stock. The mounting screw took almost two full turns. When I first pumped it, it was very stiff. It was hard to get four pumps. After about 20 rounds, I oiled the pivot points, which helped. Now, six pumps is very easy.
