    I started to double up the cleaning patches to get an even tighter-fit in the barrel and they finally stopped coming out dark-black. Once all the metal mechanical parts fully mesh, you have made any tweaks and adjustments, and fully broken in the barrel, it should begin shooting more predictably. You can begin to anticipate the trigger take-up, especially with a 2 stage sear, and learn the ins and outs of your particular air gun.

    So firing the first shots, I noticed that groupings were terrible in general, but I continued to fire shots and after about shots I finally settled on a group approximately the size of a Canadian dime from 10M.

    One possible explanation for this is the barrel manufacturing process left a large amount of residue and required cleaning; after I had finished a major cleaning, groupings finally began to improve. Another potential explanation would be that some of the pellets I had been using tested with Gamo 0. When I tested the after the cleaning with Magnums and Predator Polymag pellets, groupings became much tighter, and after moving to the prone supported position, groupings tightened up to an acceptable 1.

    Other than the pump stiffness and the initially poor groupings, I noticed the trigger pull had a fair bit of take-up and slack, as well as wobble; not to mention a high pull force. There should have been maybe a 2mm of extra material cast into the cover plate to lock the trigger down, instead of a insufficient spring washer to try to do the job.

    Regardless I noticed the trigger group has some significant problems probably why so many trigger upgrades exist : Trigger to sear has a noticeable gap at the contacting surfaces even when the gun is cocked — this causes some of the initial slack.

    Sear to hammer has noticeable take-up, possibly due to rounded off parts. I had also compressed the sear spring to reduce the trigger pull force, this helped too. One feature I did appreciate with the was that dry firing is acceptable, because the power source is separate from the cocking and firing mechanism, one can practice their trigger pull without ruining the main spring.

    There may be wear and tear on the valve assembly, but non-significant if anything one pump can be put in to provide a small amount of resistance anyway. Handle any air rifle as if it was a loaded firearm and apply good gun safety practice.

    About this Entry: As a large part of this blog is to be about airguns and there use from my perspective, I figured it would be good to give some information on which airguns I like, and why. This entry is an attempt to do just that. The long term reliability of these rifles is another thing I really like about the Crosman Multi Pump Rifles.

    Crosman The Crosman 66 was available in both a smooth-bore long gun and a rifle. I will not call any gun a rifle unless it has a rifled barrel. I like the rifled version. Yes the Crosman 66 has a soda straw barrel, not a big deal. Crosman The Crosman is a great. It will deliver more power to target than any other Crosman. Again a very accurate rifle, unfortunately more than 50 years out of production.

    I no longer make much use of this gun just because it is heavy to carry all day. About pounds, which becomes quite noticeable after a full day in the desert. Also it is harder to pump than any other Multi Pump rifle I have ever shot. Crosman and G Backpacker: These are both the same gun, the only difference being that the has a 14 inch barrel where the G has a 12 inch barrel.

    The Crosman G is also known as the Crosman Backpacker. The Crosman Backpacker is essentially pistols with a longer barrel and a quick detach version of the stock.

    The also comes without any pistol grips. It is meant to break down and fit into a backpack easily. The Crosman g is the version I have, and it is a great little break down carbine. It has been modified for additional power over stock, though is still one of the best as far as portability and utility is concerned. Very accurate as well.

    Being based on the Crosman pistol the G is also the easiest to work on of all the Crosman Rifles. The Crosman Legacy is based on the Crosman design with a few upgrades to improve its power. I just recently got my first Crosman Legacy , and am very much impressed with it. It is extremely accurate, much more powerful out of box than I would have expected, and very nice to shoulder and shoot. It is definitely more than just a Crosman , it is a true high end Multi-Pump with a bargain price tag.

    I just wrote a more complete review on the Crosman Legacy earlier today so I will not spend to much time on it. Crosman Pistols: In this section I will be talking about both Multi Pump pistols and CO2 pistols, as there are a lot fewer than there are Crosman Rifles that interest me.

    Crosman This one is actually an interesting note, as mine has a 12 inch barrel and shoulder stock making it a small carbine. Though the Crosman comes as a. The comes with a 7 inch barrel. The Crosman is a good little single shot CO2 gun. It is easy to work on, easy to upgrade, very accurate. As a carbine it is perfect. These have the bragging rites of being among the most powerful low cost air pistols on the market for a long time, as well as one of the most accurate shooting.

    Add to that how easy it is to improve the power by all the after market upgrades and it is a true gem. In my view these shine most once a shoulder stock is used and they are used as short carbines, they are to accurate to take full advantage of as pistols.

    In stock form these both come with a 10 inch barrel, an ok plastic breach with brass bolt, and an actual blade front sight.

    That last note, a blade site, not this new fiber optic worthlessness. While they are fairly powerful as pistols, even as they come, a few upgrades make them very nice as carbines. They are very easy to pump, very easy to work on, light weight, accurate, and just all around perfect tools for many jobs. The is the pistol on which the Crosman g backpacker is based, and it was a great choice. They are the three that are practical for hunting, the Crosman , Crosman , and Crosman Crosman The is a nice CO2 Carbine with a 14 inch.

    Powerful enough for small game hunting as it comes, very nice and light weight, the Crosman is probably the ideal in CO2 Rifles for most purposes. Again after market upgrades can improve things even further. It is nice to be able to use CO2 rifles when you have the CO2, though if you run out better have a multi pump handy. For all the Crosman rifles and pistols the accuracy holds true, with the exception of the Crosman The Crosman The is a wood stocked. This is the high end of the Crosman CO2 rifles that use 12 Gram powerlets.

    Everything for the accuracy holds equal on the as all the others except for the The biggest disadvantage of the is the wood stock, which is wood so easy to nick mar and ding.

    The Crosman This is the only. It is powerful enough for hunting. Its biggest downfall is that it is not very accurate, just enough for hunting out to 15 yards. The Crosman is way different from any of the others, in that it has a double action only revolver mechanism internally to make it as close to simi-auto as Crosman could. As such it has the worst trigger of any of the rifles mentioned here.

    My reason for keeping the Crosman is the convenience of multi shot shooting when needed. Otherwise it does not get used much. Single Pumpers: Unfortunately these are a dying bread, though I have two that I use a lot. These are both. What is a Single Pump Airgun? The nature of only using a single pump makes for improved shot to shot consistancy, as such for a long time many competition Air Rifles and Air Pistols were made as single pump.

    These are lower power than there Multi Pump siblings, though not by as much as you might think. The Daisy Target Pro: The Daisy is a low cost target rifle, nearly as accurate is its much more expensive siblings, and a touch more powerful.

    The Daisy comes with a precise barrel having a rifling twist rate of most air rifles are twist , which is great for better accuracy out of the slower pellet. The Daisy is out of production for over a year now.

    The advertised muzzle velocity for the Daisy was FPS as it says on my box. My Daisy propelles a 7. So it is possible to improve the power of the Daisy a bit. The Daisy is extremely precise out to 15 yards, and is good enough out to 20 yards, after that the precision begins to fall of a bit. Out to 15 yards this is the most precise shooting rifle I own, bar none. Another nice thing about this Rifle is that it can use 5 shot auto feeding clips.

    Being a single pump this makes it possible to get 10 good shots in under a minute with enough practice. This is something I often do when plinking. On the question of hunting, yes the Daisy is powerful enough for some of the smaller stuff at very close range, technically. That being said I can not recommend using it for hunting for anyone else, as there is to much risk of a bad shot causing a less than human kill, or just causing the intended prey to suffer.

    I will not comment on my personal usage. Beeman P This is one of the best little pistols out there. For an air pistol it has decent power, propelling a 7. That is great for any Air Pistol, add to that the fact that the Beeman P17 is a single pump Air Pistol and that is awsome. The P17 is so accurate that it is near unbelievable.

    As long as you do your part you will hit where you aimed. Loading the Beeman P17 does take some practice, though it is worth it. For the precision that this pistol gives you there is nothing on the market that can beet it for less than 10 times its price. I will be mentioning each of them from time to time on this blog, or at least the ones I still have of them.

    I am working at reducing the total number of Air Rifles in my collection, and there are a few on my list that I do not currently own. Share this:.

    That being said I can not recommend using it for hunting for anyone else, as there is to much risk of a bad shot causing a less than human kill, or just causing the intended prey to suffer. I will not comment on my personal usage. It is possible to stuff these as well, and get some gains. Make sure to camphor the transition from the cut in half length wise and full around parts of the rods. I have found that the gains from stuffing the top part are small enough not to worry about, unless attempting to get as much power as you can where a fraction of a foot pound worries you with out spending a lot.

    So just stuffing the long slots is usually enough. I also coated the rods in hot glue on this one.

    Crosman 2289 modding, for beginners.

    This one is simple, though a bit of work. You will want to have an extra pump cup, to cut in half for measurement. Take the valve apart, and shave the valve cone back untill it fits perfectly to the pump cup, you will notice that the fit is a little off from the cone of the valve nose being to long before you start.

    It is widely believed that Crosman did this to limit the power of these AirGuns. Then clean it well to get rid of any metal shavings.

    Left is stock, right is shaved. Now remove the pump cup from the piston. Insert a thin washer in the piston where the cup goes. Put the cup back in, you may have to make a new hole for he pin that holds the cup in. Now find an O-Ring that will fit between the pump cup and piston in that little space around the edge, and is small enough in diameter not to cause any problems, you do not want to thick of an O-Ring as it could cause loss of seal.

    Reassemble your orand shoot, shoot, shoot, and shoot a little.

    The Air Rifles and Pistols I Prefer.

    There are a few levels of work that can be done here, and care is needed. Disassemble the valve before beginning and remove the valve stem.

    Clean it out very well to get rid of any metal shavings, then reassemble the valve, reassemble the gun and have some fun shooting. Left stock, right ported. Easy time. Replace the hammer spring with a Crosman hammer spring.
