I must say I like this air rifle a lot. I don't have a lot of experience with these but this one seems to live up to all of the things i have found on it through my research. It is a very solidly built rifle. The synthetic stock is made of a very high quality material that would be very difficult to mark up never mind break. It feels like it is a solid piece and there is no ringing or reverberation in it when firing that would indicate any hollow pockets in it. The barrel is very heavy and appears to have a nice rifling. The reciever (or what would be the reciever on a firearm, the part behind the barrel) also seems well constructed. The steel on the reciever and barrel seem to be real firearms grade steel. the barrel is comparable to the barrels on most of my 22 rifles and my 17HMR rifle. The blueing on all of the steel is also very nice, looks like a high quality finish. The rubber recoil pad is also a very nice material and sits comfortably in the shoulder. The cocking of the rifle is not overly difficult but you do need to tap the barrel at the top to get the initial break, you can't just grab it and pull it forward. I would assume that this is a good thing, and from my research this is true of all break barrels. I read one review that said the barrel does not lock in place and bounces open. I had this happen 2 times, however I had to really slam the barrel up to get it to do it, which i don't normally do. Over all the construction and materials are top notch. If you closed your eyes and I put this in your hands you would think I handed you a full sized 22 rifle. I find it hard to believe that they make much money selling this thing for $80. The only 2 things left on the rifle to go over are the trigger and the sights. As far as the sights go they are cheap but they work fine. I tried to find a rifle that didn't use these plastic sights but it seemed like everything under $300 used these plastic sights. The front sight is all plastic but feels pretty sturdy and durable. It is a green fiber-optic sight and it is also fixed. The rear sight which is adjustable for windage and elevation feels a little lacking. The rear sight on the Phantom adjusts easily with nice sharp clicks and is a set of red fiber-optics. It amazes me that they make a rifle of this quality and then throw on these cheap sights. I physically went to stores and checked out many different makes and models and they all used this stuff. The worst part is that if you buy any of the $30 to $50 pump air rifles you get a nice set of metal sights. It doesn't make much sense. Oh well. I had never used fiber-optic sights before, and I have got to say I am not a huge fan. They do work well, but I would much prefer a basic set of metal sights. The biggest complaint about this rifle is the trigger but I didn't have any problem with it. I am not into triggers the way a lot of people are. there is nothing wrong with customising triggers, I am just not into it. I have always prefered to just learn the personality (for lack of a better word) of the different triggers of my guns. As long as the trigger is acceptable to me I wouldn't mess with it. I have shot some guns that had terrible triggers on them and if they belonged to me I would get some work done on them but I have never owned a gun that I felt needed anything done to it. For me personally I think this makes me a more consistant shot with a large variety of weapons and it usually doesnt take me long to get the feel of a trigger unless it is very bad. I found this trigger to be fine for me. It is adjustable but I did not even mess with it. There is a good bit of creep and the release is not super crisp, but I had no trouble with it afer just 3 or 4 shots. I do agree that it is does not feel like a 2 stage trigger and if you are into triggers you will probably find this one lacking as I have not heard anywhere that adjusting it makes it any crisper, just lighter or heavier. I have put many rounds through it and it is getting less noisy. After getting the sights where I want them I have been shooting 5 shot groups at 25 yards with open sights that are just bigger than a golf ball (shooting bech rested). I have also been shooting gallon jugs at 50 yards unrested both sitting and standing without many misses. I have not done any actual target work out past 25 yards yet though. I have been using different pellets and have not noticed much difference but I have mainly been using cheap Crosman domed pellets from Wal-mart (250 for $2). I am very impressed with the way this rifle shoots and am very happy with my purchase. Well woth $80. Sorry this was so long but I wanted to give a nice detailed description because being new to this type of product it took me a long time and a lot of leg work to find all of these little details. I have posted some pictures of the sights, trigger and recoil pad so you can really see them. Hope this is helpful.
I set up a target to prepare for the time the very annoying squirrel attacks my wife's bird feeder again. My faithful watchdog is patiently sitting on the lawn, now to let me know when the varmint appears. He is 8 pounds of pure venom, that one. Anyway, the first shot was a little to the right, so I had my wife try it and she put one nearly in the same spot. So, I adjusted windage a few times and the last one was nearly dead center, so I think I am ready for that bad squirrel to show.
I had seen some reviews stating the sights were cheap etc., but although I am not expert by any means, I thought they were just fine and I love the way they line up easily. I thought I would get a scope for this, but now, I am not so sure...I may leave it this way and see how it goes.
For the money, I really like the way this rifle looks, feels, and shoots. I know we are going to have a lot of fun together. When we are enjoying our summer property, it will be nice to have this around to get rid of some of the creatures getting in the way of the creatures we love. Or just plunking for fun. Great buy, I think! I will follow up after I have used it for a while.
I suggest that Crosman Company should suggest scopes and scope mounts that will fit this gun. This will greatly help a person buy these items online even though they may know very little about the items. It took me several weeks to find out the proper mount for my gun as the scope I ordered was for a Weaver scope mount and the Phantom break barrel has a Dovetail mount. Also, I ordered an oil (Pelgun oil) which was for a pellet gun and found when it came it was not for a break barrel pellet gun. Crosman could also recommend a suitable oil in the review of the gun. I suggest a drop down menu with links to proper scopes, scope mounts if necessary, and any additional items compatible with this gun including the proper oil. Just as when buying a book there could be some reference to what is compatible with the item.
The Crossman Company was cooperative in trying to help but the representative who answered my e-mail could not recommend a scope mount conversion. (She did help in that she stated the Phantom 1000 had a dovetail mounting configuration. I found one on my own and didn't know if it would work until it came in the mail.
Unless these suggestions are properly addressed, I will not buy any other items online which I am not already thoroughly familiar.
