The NEW Optimus break barrel is both powerful and elegant. It features a handsome, ambidextrous hardwood stock. With a relatively light cocking force and a two-stage adjustable trigger the Optimus is built to get the job done with velocities of up to 950 fps with alloy pellets. The barrel incorporates a micro-adjustable rear sight and fiber optic front sight. If choosing the model with optics, you’ll find a CenterPoint®, 4x32mm precision scope.
NOT A TOY. THIS AIRGUN IS RECOMMENDED FOR ADULT USE ONLY. MISUSE OR CARELESS USE MAY RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH. BE CAREFUL, SHOOT SAFELY.

Very nice work
I shot 150 ~ 200 of various pellets and found the Pointed HP 14.2g are very good with this one. 3/4" groups at 20 yards, 700 fps average roughly, chronograph a few at 725 but still not broke in. So far a great value as was on sale for $50.00 WOW what a buy!! Should turn out to be the best buy yet. Anyway at the regular price ($125 range) is still a good value, nice wood, locks up nicely, accuracy is good so far, it should get slightly better after 400~500 cycles.
I have several others in 22 and this one is nicely done and as I said... dang what a value WOW!
Solid, no frills rifle
Excellent beginner rifle (as was the case for me) with decent accuracy. Shot my first varmints today at 15 meters or so, clean shots that immediately dropped each chipmunk even though they weren't head shots. Great for pest control and fun to shoot!
Great simple beginner rifle
I bought this rifle for back yard plinking, I don't know much about airguns and maintenance so I stuck with a .22 breakbarrel that was cheap. At first, the rifle is hard to cock, the spread was a little high, and the recoil was pretty strong for a air rifle. Over a few months I got pretty good with it and I can hit cans at 25 to 30 meters easily. I plan on going to some places where I can take longer range shots. Overall, it is a great rifle for teaching new shooters the basics, and provides a good learning curve to make sure you get the basic skills in like the artillery hold first. I recommend starting out with the open sights first for learning how to get good breath control first.
Crosman Optimus .22 & 4x32 center point scope
My First Air Rifle too, Great value for money & Very happy with it
Very Acurite out of the box & good power too, I'm getting 711-726fps & 17.3 -25.6 ft/lb with various pellets
My first air rifle was the Optimus .177 at 495 fps because I live in Canada. I have a 3-7x20 scope and got a mocking bird that was realy annoying in right in the face. I would love to try the 950 fps in .22

Good First Choice
By Barry Ellershaw
This is the first air rifle I have ever owned, I bought it as a hobby now that I have retired and I am very pleased with its performance. A bit of a fiddle to zero it in but that could have been me. I had to re-enforce the padding in my home made target when it took out the back of the box at 25 yards.
