    495 fps not good for hunting anything just a target shooter

    By chris

    2014-06-29 02:34:16
    i live in canada and bought the detuned phantom .22 its great for targets but i would not use it for hunting anything or pest control its not powerful enough to kill small pests and really is likely to just make the pest/animal suffer. im now thinking that all pellet guns sold anywhere should have more then the 495 feet per second voloceity selling the 1000 fps makes more sence so that if someone trys to shoot a pest that it does the job right not makes it suffer. No clue what idiot shot a cat but i heard the story and thought id let everyone know my point of view. myself i like cats there not a pest there a nice animal that most of us have as pets i kinda wish the same on the dumbass that shot it with a low powerd rifle and thought it was cool. id rather the laws be changed then hear any more stories of suffering animals... hopefully the laws here can be changed so that none of the pests suffer too much quickly and painless as possible is best. thank you for listening and i hope you can help make the changes i love shooting cans and targets and if i had to deal with pests i would just none really bug me that much maybe rats might if there were lots around the house but i havent seen any.. thanks for listening and have fun shooting just try your best not to make anything suffer like that poor cat...

    Great gun

    Although I've used a few, this was the first air gun I bought and for the price I was very pleased, the optic sights are great and the weight is nice. Very accurate, recently bought hollow point pellets and they help with velocity and impact greatly. Easily took out a couple of squirells today.

    i did have a issue with the spring from factory it was bent and cut. i called crosman they said call gravelagency.com i got a new spring within 3 days no charge great service . so far i have the .22 phantom .177 optimus and the .177 model 795 .the .22 is all stopping power unless u have a pal or fire arms licence much more enjoyable for target practice compaired to the .177 495 fps. i dont regret maybe at first untill i shot it and saw the difference for plinking havent shot any pests yet but that is what i got it for squirrles my .177 bounces off these tubby ontario rats we have the largest tree rats in the world. dear crosman need more ammo types in canada on shelf at wallmart or canadian tire cant find wadcutters or heavy mag rounds i can only get destroyer pointed and hollow points ive been looking for like a year for mag rounds havent even shot one before thanks

    Bought a phantom .177 and man, what a disappointment. Crunch, crunch gravelly sound/feel while cocking, like something broke inside. Horrible trigger, must be close to 8-10 lb. pull. Junk air rifle, waste of $$.

    Good gun

    It's a good gun I have the .177 cal but I would recommend the .22 the .177 seems to lose velocity very quickly! Giving it next to no penetration at a bit of a distance! Great gun for target shooting but for pest control get the .22! I mounted a cheap scope on it a it works nicely! Overal very sturdy feeling gun it's a good choice for the price!

    This is a great gun for its price. This gun is great for pest and small game hunting. I recently killed 2 squirrel and a few crows even a rabbit so this gun is pretty good. The only thing I don't like about this gun is the sight. Other than that it's a great gun overall.

    Phantom 1000 Rifle 495fps (.22)

    By Alan

    I am plagued by feral pigeons so needed a decent rifle to sort them. on the advice of my gun dealer I purchased this rifle. What a disapointment it has turned out to be. anything over 7metres away it just bounces off even tried hollow points and that was even worse. My dealer has checked out the rifle and says it is working within it's parameters but to me it's worse than useless.

    NOTE FROM CROSMAN: THIS IS A DETUNED VERSION AND NOT SUITABLE FOR PEST CONTROL.

    I live on an acreage with quite a few pests. A .22 rimfire is noisy and bothers the neighbours, this takes care of that. The sights line up nicely and are really accurate once you learn to line them up red between green......

    awesomeness

    this gun is good for pests. 50 yuards away hollow point pellet went right through the squirrel. best bang for your buck. downside is the plastic sights but easy to sight up. very good gun. hard to break at first but gets easier I love mine and would recommend it. these guns can kill even cats... so be careful and watch what your doing.....

    Great gun

    I have had this gun for around 8 months. I do live in Canada, and this is the biggest gun you can get legally without a firearms license. I mounted a centerpoint 3-9x32 AR22 series scope on it and it is very accurate using Crosman Premier Hollow Points. I recently shot a rabbit with it. I usually shoot close range because it is pretty low velocity and there is drop after about 30 feet. I shot the rabbit at about 15-20 feet. This is a great gun and I love it.

    Accurate, great stock, excellent value!

    I don't live in Canada, but I bought this "de-tuned" 495 FPS gun because I wanted a relatively gentle, all-day shooter. That's exactly what I got.

    Additionally, I got excellent accuracy and an ergonomically-great stock. This stock makes it very easy to use the artillery hold, which improves the consistency of the gun's accuracy.

    The gun feels solid and well-made. It looks good, too, with a level of fit-and-finish that is above this gun's price point.

    Anything negative? YES! The trigger is heavy, far from smooth, and it is also unpredictable and inconsistent.

    Despite knowing about the trigger issue before I bought this gun (I also have a Quest 1000, which is very similar to the Phantom), I still did buy this gun, and I am happy that I did.

    good gun for plinking and small game . I have been using it for about 5 months on an almost daily basis and had had only a few small problems. some pellets do not stay in when I close the barrel and others seem very snug. this probably has more to do with the pellets but whatev. still a great gun for a great price ! a few extra bucks for a scope wouldn't hurt either. I installed a laser for a couple weeks but in the daytime it was almost useless outdoors. for a beginner or an old time air rifle expert , this gun is among the best.

    sturdy

    By chris

    2013-02-03 18:53:53
    I was impressed with the way this gun shoots and feels. I paid 99$ for it so didn't expect much.
    The gun surpassed my expectations by far. It's a strong shooter. Lots of power for a air gun and it feels good and comfortable when shooting. It seems to
    Be made very sturdy. No shoddy parts on mine. It has good grouping . Hit a nickel at 45ft consistently I will be trying a scope on it to see how far I can push it.
    But I think it should do ok. All in all I'd say for the price its as good as it gets. Now go buy it and have fun like I am ...lol
