Review, Crosman Optimus 1200fps .177 Cal Air Rifle And Trigger Fix




What do you think about this video?

AlexanderPews: Hey, what is the difference between this rifle and the Crosman Vantage? They look incredibly the same! 

Jimmy H: Your reviews are great, Thank you. I'm tossing up between this and the Ruger Air Hawk for targets and pests. Would like your opinion. I'm new to the game so I'm not confident enough to modify the trigger and don't want to buy better scope etc. So, Which rifle is best straight from the box? 

Kevin Grimbeek: Hello Kenny. I followed your suggestion to the letter wrt modifying the trigger machanism with equally good results, albeit at the expense of my warranty! Then I had a mishap, whereby I accidentally set the trigger off while the gun was roostered and broke the spring! Living in South Africa, the only spring I could source was 4 3/4 inch's longer than the original, so I cut it to a just fit whist roostering.I also fashioned a very tough nylon bush as a shock-absorber for the "less than perfect cut end" to protect the spring guide at the rear of the rifle. Without a chrony I can still tell that my rifle is hitting so much harder now and accuracy at full rest with the H&N 9.26 grn Crow Magnum's is = to a dime at 20 yards! What's your take on this? Kind Regards.

Ovy Licker: the gun is perfect the way it is forget his trigger crap talk $80 bucks u cant beat this gun its on amazon..BA BAM!!!!!

Michael Butler: Nice review, friend. Apparently, Crosman's claim that using other ammunition other than Crosman and Benjamin may damage gun is false? I have a bunch of Daisy ammo, but going to pick up some Gamo Rocket soon. Thanks for the tip. I just got this rifle today.

Robert Harless: Just picked up a Crosman Optimus and I'm just tickled to death with it. Best $100 I've spent in ten years! You pick it up and it feels like a Winchester Model 70 featherweight. Not a surprise since they both weigh the same. Precise and tight fitting action (except the looong pull trigger and chinzty plastic trigger guard) and really nice shoulder pad. Stock is hardwood quality but the finish isn't that great. There is an adjustment screw for the trigger pull on mine, but presumably he had it all the way out? That squirrel's gonna wish he never tore up the lawn chairs :-)

Lexxed: http://www.crosman.com/pdf/manuals/CO8M22-515.pdf 3.- adjusting the trigger... loooool

Tim Keller: I didn't see exactly where the washers were installed.

Snowball PVP: is this gun capable of taking backyard pests like squirrels and starlings

Teron Gorefiend: Hi does the Crosman optimus has a plastic trigger???

Lawson11b: You just saved me $30 dollars

lunkertime: hi there i have crosman optimus its 495 fps model how ever i did buy a summit model spring what im wondering is is the piston in the 495 fps the same as a summit 1000 fps air gun ? I heard the 495 optimus piston has a hole in it to tune it down to a low FPS i never took it apart yet and hoping it doesnt have the hole in the piston ,,If it does what would you reccomend filling it with? Or do i have to by a summit piston too which i hope i dont have to do.any help or advise is appreciated...,,,

april8329: is tr77 better?

1942nuclear: the platinum and raptors are different in weight, the platinum is 4.7 and raptors are 5.3 its heavier because of the coating on the pellet, so you would be above a bit on velocity, crosman and hatsan unlike gamo are reasonable for velocity claims, gamo for decades has been 100-150 fps over rated, they still dont get it, but i still by riffles from them anyway.

ur1IAm1: hat I did take the stalk off and all the pins also, big mistake. who would have thounght, 6 or 7 parts could be so difficult. its back together but I can't get it to stay roostered , so I can't even fire it, I'm drained, I spent 3 hours trying to figure it out , its 3 weeks old , shouldn't have messed with it , thank u for any info

ur1IAm1: I was cleaning my ruger elite and now , I can't get it to rooster and lock, I was hoping Mabry u knew the common fix,.triger and spring ?

Kevin Grimbeek: Hello Kenny, I loved your review & found it to be very informative. I bought a new Crosman just over a week ago (re youre review) during which time I've already put some 400 rounds through the barrel! It appears that Crosman have rectified the trigger issue referred to by you as mine is a two stage adjustable which I've set to your recommended 1/4 inch. For now I am using $5.00 for 500 pellets and already achieving a 1/2 inch grouping @ 30 yrds. Regards, Kevin (from South Africa)

VaughnG71: I have the Firepower brand version of this gun (called the FP1) that I got refurbished for $59 (with coupon 10pct off code) at airgundepot. I can shoot dime size groups at 25yrds in a sitting position with Crosman 7.4grn pointed without the trigger fix, can't wait to see what I can do after doing the trigger job! I already regularly out shoot friends $200 to $300 guns with it! thanks for the video.

Roy Poud: thanx ,i just did my 177. boy what a pain,to find the best spacer/washer/keyring. the first was a coil from a keychain,,went off with safty on,not cool. felt crazy,non-functional light....Then,i tried a split ring from a keychain,its on there still,2 shots.im not sure yet. when i find what i like,ill do my .25 benji on camera ,,with any luck. but its certainly lighter,,maybe.ill do more tomorow.

rocky d: I have this in 22 950 fps and I think it's very nice

bleako15: How do I properly clean the bore, if I was to get this gun?

HiddenSniper88: What is better .177 caliber or .22?

myairgunreviews: Go to Walmart and get a gun cleaning kit and some Hoppe's No 9 gun bore solvent and gun oil. Order some "Nylon Bore Brush's online. Dip the Nylon bore brush in the solvent and run it through the bore at least 20 times. Use the cleaning patches and bore mop to clean out any residue and put a light coating of gun oil in the bore to keep it from rusting. A few drops of oil on a cleaning pellet or cleaning patch will do.

ThePellecan: You and I think a like! I did the trigger mod on a Summit, NICE! Thanks for the video, good info. I will keep an eye out on your reviews! I believe it could do even better with a pellet it really likes. But an inch is not to shabby. Have a great new year testing those air guns! Thanks Again!

myairgunreviews: I haven't had a chance to review a Crosman Spring Piston .22 Cal yet. The Crosman NP .22 cal is a dud for power.

Zeus Greek: please make a review of Ruger air magun 1.77 and 22

myairgunreviews: 5/16th inch or a max of 3/8th inch.

Roy Poud: oh,anyone know exactly what diameter the wire is for safe but improved results?? tia,,R

Jeff harper: was the gun broken in when you did the accuraccy test? why wouldnt you use good pellets.?/ not a very good accuracy.

Kevin Grimbeek: Hello Kenny, I loved your review & found it to be very informative. I bought a new Crosman just over a week ago (re youre review) during which time I've already put some 400 rounds through the barrel!

VaughnG71: Did the trigger job this morning, I used a nylon bushing from my RC airplane parts collection in place of the washer so there was no need to grind it down since the bushing had a much smaller outer diameter and perfect inner diameter. Thanks again for the video and idea, it worked great, trigger now has about a 1/3 inch pull.

myairgunreviews: I bought the gun used and I don't think it was Broke In. I did shoot very well with the Gamo Rocket 9.26 grain. At 20 meters (62.6ft) it shot a 1" X 1/2" group (10 shots) with a pellet not known for it's accuracy.

Zeus Greek: Magnum

myairgunreviews: Have to rebuild it first

Robert Bissett: I just made this modification but used two rings from a chain mail diy jewelry kit. The wire was about .6 or .7 mm thick and it was just right. The trigger moves about a half inch and takes less effort. Very happy with the results! You could use any wire of the right thickness. Just wrap the wire around a rod a couple times, remove and snip your rings off.

Mike S: I am looking to start air guns are Lethal and were do I shoot them

Connor Moynihan: i have no idea what you did to the trigger because of the terrible camerawork!!!!!!

Zeus Greek: could you make a video of Crosman Quest 1000

myairgunreviews: No.

Jeff harper: you need a very heavy pellet for these high powered air guns because the pellet becomes unstable past the sound barrier. but im sure you knew that

myairgunreviews: Look up "Update! How to Fix A Crosman Trigger For $1.50 With Parts From A Hobby Store" It's much better.

Виталий Рогов: Hi ! And what is the maximum output of the trunk can show this model?

TrappingWithEdgar: is this Pellet gun powerful enough to go through a 2 INCH Board???
