This is my first CO2 gun and I really like it. I also think there is no way the pellet velocity is only up to 400 fps, I have not tested it but I have shot chocolate milk containers filled with water and it has gone strait through and dented my fence. I have not experienced any problems with CO2, no leaks or anything my first tank went pretty quickly but my other two tanks lasted for a good time. In total I have used 3 CO2 tanks and I have shot 100 bbs and 100 pellets. CO2 is very tight in this gun I don't know why everyone is having problems with it but I have never heard my CO2 leak, not even when I am tightening the screw to put a new CO2 tank in. Trigger pull is a tad heavy but it's not anything that is affecting my experience, also this could be easily fixed by pulling the hammer back before you shoot even though this could prove to be a bit annoying. I really like that this can shoot bbs and pellets I think every BB gun should have this feature. This is a very good gun and I do recommend it to everyone, but there are better guns out there for example the vigilante which has more ammo capacity and I'm assuming higher fps because there is no pellet fops display on the vigilante which makes me think it is a tad higher.
I got this gun for Christmas and. I love it, if you treat it properly and maintain it it works great. The only problem I had with it is that the little magnet in the clip that holds the bb's in place fell out, it operates fine but the bbs fall out of the clip and jam the gun now and again. It's not a huge problem I will glue it in place and/or buy more (it's only a few bucks for three clips). But overall it's a great pass-time and I am enjoying it.
1088 great little gun
I'm not sure why some people say they have trouble with pellets jamming. I take care when I load them and don't try to get 100 shots out of an 80 shot cylinder. This is sort of a replica of a Ruger and it has a very realistic feel. Good accuracy (if you can't get a less than a 1" group at 25 ft it might be you, not the gun) in both double and single action. I have had no issue in loading the Co2, but again I take care. I got my first Crossman in 1972, a 38C, and it still shoots today. Like anything else you need to follow directions, and treat the 1088 with care. I would recommend this gun to anyone, and already have.
Get a laser sight for it and you will be amazed.
The sights on the gun totally suck. Sorry, Crosman, I love you guys, but the sights are too high and too clunky for accurate work. I put a cheap laser sight on the rail and I can consistently make a dime-sized group at 10 feet (rat range). Also, I had to re-rivet the grip covers so that they snapped in place properly. Now the feel is perfect and I hardly even have to use the sights anymore. I'm going to try and put some night sights on it when I have time. I would give you 5 stars just for the barrel, but you lose one for the sights and quality on the grip manufacturing. To anyone using bbs: WHY? Sure, they're cheap, but you can't hit anything with a bb in a 4 inch barrel. You might as well throw the box at whatever you're shooting.
If you want your airgun to last keep it service and lube after using it.
Im 14 and i bought my 1088 about 3 years ago. It never lets me down. Ive killed countless rodents I was supprised at how well it worked. I was a little disopointed at how much the pellets jammed but other than that i love it!!
i have this gun and enjoy it vary much. i would recommend any crosman product. they stand behind there products 100% this means everything to me.i have had to send a gun back to them and they were great about replacing the gun.for this reason i believe there products are vary much worth the money you send.not all companies are as good about repair and replacement.i really like crosman products for this reason.
Good with BBs, jams with pellets
Bought mine a few days ago. I've run through 10+ CO2 cartridges and the gun will miss-fire a pellet on avg. 3 times out of 8 - The nose of the pellet jams against the fluting on the barrel port. It is as if it requires the pellet to be perfectly lined up with the barrel since it leaves a crescent-shaped indentation on the nose of the pellet. At first I thought it was the clip gripping the pellets too tightly, or the ratchet teeth were dodgy, so I bought a pack of 3 extra clips - Not one will fire an entire clip of pellets. It will ALWAYS jam somewhere in those 8 rounds while using the 100 supplied Crosman pellets.
BBs work well and accurately. I'll stick to them from now on.
I like the high-speed loading of both ammo and CO2.
Over-all, this is a good gun, let down by its pellet-handling ability. I would assume tolerances get finer and weapons fire more accurately the higher in price one goes.
In closing, if you are looking for a pistol that handles pellets, look elsewhere
Bought this pistol today. Shot through all the included ammo and 10-15 clips more. Used a total of 4 co2s. The first having enough remaining for at least one possibly two more clips. Shoots great. Consistancy is my favorite part. It shoots with great power and i would say 6 or 7 of each clip right where i want them already. Reasonable price, muzzle velocity and dual ammo capability make this a great starter gun.
It is a great gun. Shoots pellets and bb's no problem. Have used 50+ co2 's and it has started to leak a little. It sounds like it leaks at the part where the co2 enters the gun. It hisses every couple seconds that last for half a second. I think it leaks where the co2 goes into the gun because I can't hear it when I put the side panels back on.
By some dude
I've had mine for a few months now. Bought it to replace my old 1008, which still works great after I have no clue how many years. Used about 20+ co2's so far and it's never let me down. Only problem I have is the bb's don't want to stay in the clip, but I like pellets much more any way lol.
It's a little shorter than the 1008 but still has nice range for a co2 handgun.
Today I taught my 8 year old daughter how to shoot it. Like someone stated before me that the trigger is a little hard to pull for little hands, reminder it's not made for kids, I feel it helps teach them how to squeeze the trigger and helps stop unintentionally discharge.
EASY to load and change co2's.
Picked up the holster yesterday and fit's great and can use to hold spair clips, 1 co2 and 2 PBA ammo containers(1 refilled with whatever I feel like using) Clip pouch is a little tight with all that :P
I just bought this 1088BAK as a replacement that lasted only 30days (diferent maker). I like this gun, with full size feel. The reloading is a snap for both the CO2 and ammo.
Wow, both pellets and BB. That's nice and should be available in every BB pistol!
I have one very very big problem with this pistol. My 7 year old daught loves to shoot BBs with me in our indoor range! She loves it! But she can't use this gun! Why, OMG, why did Crosman make this gun with such a heavy trigger Pull??
been using mine for squirrel and chipmunk control for a couple of years now.
pellets go clean through
Not bad for starters
I bought this gun couple of days ago. I find it quite ok for target practice. I don't think it cant get a rodent down. For the money it is a good value :)
very good pistol.
i bought the first one back in october of 2011 and love it. the fact it shoots both bb's and pellet's are a plus. just bought my other one in january of this year and both work so well. this is one of those guns that you just would never get rid of or sell. i have had nothing but success with both of mine and deffentally keeping them forever. the co2 is easy to install and the 8 round clip is very easy to reload. buy extra clips for faster shots and more fun. i hope this review was helpful.
Good to start with
Its A great gun to start with and good for target practice
By Muay Thai41
Fired 10 bb's then the wheel popped out. Now using only pelliets. Only fired 8 pellets but it seems to be working okay.l
its not too bad

i had this gun for about 6 months before the nut that you use to fill/empty the co2 broke now i cant put more co2 in it and it wont shoot
this is a great gun
