Not good enough to shoot a mouse
Crosman describes the purpose of this gun as a target plinker only. That is what it is. It is fun to shoot. It is addictively fun to shoot. But in the back of my mind I had the idea of going against the recommendations and was hoping to get rid of some Starlings from point blank (5 Meters) range. After shooting the gun and seeing little or absolutely no penetration on wood even from very close distances I was not sure. I discharged this gun with 10 pumps at 0 inches into a leather glove and it stopped the pellet cold with not even a mark on the thin glove. I will not be shooting anything but cans and paper with this gun, which is okay because that is what Crosman recommends and that is really its intended purpose. I will save the pest control to my Marauder .25, which is way too much overkill for birds but at least I know that I am not going to be chasing around wounded or dazed birds in my back yard. If anyone is interested, my marauder penetrated almost completely through an inch thick treated board with one shot, the pistol left a .177 smudge and bounced back just above my head.
Fun to plink with
I enjoy this thing. I like that you have some control on the velocity. Although much of the time, when I pump it just 1 time, it will fail to send the pellet down range. It's intermittent though...so, 2 pumps minimum and you can chase pests away without lethality if need be. 10 pumps and it sends the hollow point Destroyer pellets w serious lethality out to about 30 yds with 2-4 inch groups
I like this air pistol. I just got it, my first air pistol, and I penetrated a 3 liter plastic jug. It went through both sides. I like it, a lot.
After hearing of all the sniper-grade accuracy I purchased this from WalMart. I had thought it was a 1377c, not realizing it was a PC77 - while the general consensus is good accuracy, I find it very hard to be any bit accurate with this pistol. From factory, it's POI was approx 4" to the right of bullseye at 5 yards - without adjustment, it would barely keep on the page. Also, the rear sight is completely bottomed out, and the pistol still shoots 1" high at the same range. I have tried Gamo MasterPoint, Magnum, Hunter, Crosman Destroyer and Premium, and have yet to see any improvement in accuracy or consistency. All shooting done from a rest.
The barrel could move around in the front brace by 1mm in all directions, and the trigger felt to be at least 4lbs, with sticky creep. The Peep sight is nearly useless without pulling the pistol close to you - as the aperture needs to be a little larger, and even with use of the aperture, groups were still 1.5-2" at best at 4-5yds, and when bottomed out, still shoots high.
I would recommend this ONLY on behalf of the many other consumers who have had a very good experience with this pistol, but personally it has yet to impress me.
American Classic/Pumpmaster Classic/1377
Whatever you want to call it, it's a great pistol for someone just getting into air pistols, or even someone who wants to be able to keep sharp by shooting in the basement. I've got two of them, one with the LPA Mim sight and one with a red dot. Very accurate, with a good solid feel. Trigger is okay, but there is a short throw before releasing, and after a while you get used to it. I've shot all kinds of pellets with it, and it's not terribly fussy. For the sight upgrades, you have to add the steel breech kit, which adds some weight (and one of the breeches I got wasn't deburred of sharp edges well enough, and the slot where the bolt handle rides gave me a few cuts.) Many aftermarket upgrades are available, and if you look online, you can see beautifully tricked-out 1377's - it's almost like a blank canvas to the upgrade enthusiast!
Sights were aligned well from the factory, but unless you are going to upgrade the site, put a drop of green thread locker on the screw that holds the rear sight, or it could loosen; also be careful of the original rear sight when pulling the bolt handle back, as that's how I loosened mine up (though I was planning to add upgraded sights anyway.)
And be sure to get a tube of the Pellgun oil when you buy one of these, as it will keep it working smoothly and ensure the long life of the seals.
Overall, a great pistol for new or experienced airgun fans - accurate, solidly built, and a great value for the money!
Really great shooter. 1/2 inch groups at 10 yards, BUT you have to be very selective on choice of pellets. A good place to start is the crosman 8 grain hollow point
Premium. 3 grain alloy pellet penetrated a phone book 300 pages. The premium penetrated 600 pages. Not bad fodr a "toy"
This pistol is fast and very easy to pump. 7 pumps works good for 15-20 yards and 5 is good for anything under 15 yards. You should get this pistol.
crosman pumpmaster classic
The pumpmaster classic is cool but is kind of hard 2 pump,i would recomond the 760
