“The more you shoot the quieter this rifle gets and the better you shoot.”
Allow me to address any question or concern.
Now I am very huge on accuracy and am an expert shooter, I will revisit this point later.
Step 1 this rifle out of the box should be cleaned of excess grease and oil, run a bore brush through the barrel too.
Step 2 Tighten all screws with a screwdriver, the two stock screws, the trigger, and butt plate. & scope mounts and scope.
Important important important...tighten the big screw holding the barrel to the receiver. You will need to remove the stock to access this screw. That will be the two side screws on the stock and the two in the trigger well.
NOTE: this is a magnum air gun, shooting it will loosen ALL screws throughout this rifle. Use blue Loctite.
Step#3 Break it in shooting cheap daisy pellets into the dirt or a whatever. This is not for practice, only to break in the rifle. (Needs to have a break-in period. in this period this rifle is burning off excess oil and grease and seating in all its components. Failure to do this will result in poor accuracy.) 150-500 pellets.
Next: IMPORTANT this rifle likes 10.5 grain and up pellets. Anything less will cause poor accuracy. Recommend Crosman Premier ultra mags domed. Or JSB exact monsters 13.4 grain.
Look it’s like this, the more weight (grain) of the pellet, the more accurate this rifle. Reason for this is this is a Super Mag rifle. Light grain pellets will become unstable flying out of this thing at blazing speeds loosing accuracy. Heavy is better, more kinetic energy delivered on target means more destruction.
This is Crossman big dog flag ship of break barrels.Read more ›
You may wish to see my review of the Gamo 'Big Cat' .22 caliber rifle and some facts I put out from certain individuals who know little of ballistics and feel that only 'velocity' matters where there are many other factors to consider.Read more ›
Anyway I decided to buy this rifle from my local gun store here in Newport (knowing that if it was as bad as everyone said i could return it after the weekend) despite the negative and even sometimes Hateful reviews it had been given. I've had it for 2 weeks, put more than a thousand pellets through it, and here is my unbiased opinion thus far.
My first impression of this gun was Great... It looked really nice, it was (or at least felt) extremely solid, and came with a well proportioned scope in my opinion. Some people complained that the wood wasn't well finished or looked like it had been done by a kid... Now maybe mine was just done perfectly idk, but i was amazed and should i say surprised by the craftsman ship. Maybe i was expecting less from the reviews, but i was, Like I said "Impressed". I really dont buy a rifle for the finish anyway because I know i'm going to abuse it outdoors in the mud and rain etc...
Ok so on to performance. The first day i wanted to put as much lead through the barrel as possible to break it in... I only had about an hour of daylight left after i got home, So i quickly mounted the scope, and went to my backyard where i regularly shoot other air rifles as well. In just under an hour i put 350 rounds through it... you do the math. I can see how people would give this gun a bad review up to this point. I sight all my Air rifles in at 50 yards.Read more ›

Heavy rifle, not for the failt-hearted or weak. Accuracy 99.9% less than 1 inch off at 35 yards using benjamin's domed, going for 100 yards after 7-900 shots - will update. Read morePublished 10 days ago by Amazon Customer
This is a well-designed rifle, and hefty enough that only the big guys might appreciate carrying it in the field. It is wonderfully accurate but decidedly on the heavy side for me. Read morePublished 12 days ago by Sand Man
