Crosman has been using plastic in air guns for years. croswood in 1967 makes them almost pioneers in the synthetic stock business.the model 70 used lots of plastic in new ways.
Of course The MK- 177 has metal too and in the right places. It pumps up easily and shoots accurately with good power. Some people will not like the bolt handle on the left but since I am a lefty I feel like the gods have smiled upon me and granted my wish. To all of the right handed air gunners who buy this air rife now you know how it feels. To Crosman you've made another good air gun but in the future try not to mold in pictures of a BB and a pellet by a non functional lever you might confuse someone that is easily confused.
I got nickle size groups at 30+ feet
Decent gun at the right price $84 11/2013
I got just the basic gun in black with an extra pack of clips. I've fired both pellets and BB's through it and I found it a decent gun. My biggest problem is that the BB cover easily comes open from bumping and BB's end up on the floor.
The power was right for the number of pumps. 3-5 for target. Even at 5 pumps, it was tearing the paint off of my metal target using pellets. I didn't like that the bolt was on the left side. It was as if this was made for left handed users and the M4 was designed for right handed users. It could have made use of the mag as a 2nd storage compartment but I bet they thought that one storage as enough.
Nice but oddly designed!
Overall though it is a really cool and powerful rifle that is great for pest control and just target shooting. I give it five stars simply because it is nice looking powerful and mostly easy to use, in addition to it being a fairly inexpensive rifle at this power. If I could, I'd take a star away due to the storage design and the selector switch design.
exception. This riflle is solidly built and very accurate. And as far as power goes it shot through a dozen soda cans
that were 15 feet away when fired at! Thank you Crosman for another great product to keep this airgun nut happy.

First, let me just say... Thank You Crosman. You are the only airgun company to bring AR-styled airguns to the mass market.
The MK 177 is a competent air rifle. The overall appearance is attractive as it seems to take queues from the SCAR and ACR assault rifles. The entire body is one piece. No adjustable stock here so durability is much better. The clip too is part of the molded body and storage has been moved to the stock via removable rubber pad (very nice I think). Also, the RIS is generously placed and allows for all kinds of accessories. Furthermore, two tabs have been added (one on each side of the barrel) to keep the pump lever from inadvertently falling down when not in use. Even with the tabs the pump action is still smooth and fluid. The bolt lever is located on the left side but, it is easy to get used to.
This air rifle is a good move forward in the variable pump product line. However, I would like to see a similar looking model designed in a break barrel nitro piston setup. Anyway, the MK 177 variable pump has decent power along with good styling and functionality.
*Minnesota Mike posted he could not break a beer bottle at 12 paces. Well, instead of loading himself he should have loaded his gun. I destroyed a beer bottle at 20 paces.

MK-177 field tested
By Ken M
Being right handed I was able to pump the rifle with my left hand and hold the rifle with my right hand by grasping the pistol grip handle, top of the receiver or buttstock. I found setting the buttstock against my front hip while pumping made cocking easy with my right thumb and indexing the pellet clip with my right index finger in 2 smooth snap moves just above the receiver when shooting pellets and my Fiance did the same as we traded back and forth taking shots for a couple of hours.
I was debating on purchasing the MK-177, M4-177, and Winchester M14 CO2. I chose the MK-177 for it's styling, configuration of controls and variable pump action and with price being in between the M4-177 and Winchester it was an easy choice. I did my homework and read the reviews before hand, my concerns with the mentioned pump action, stock sights, buttpad storage access, and cocking/feeding were quickly put to rest as I found everything operating without any issues and lay out of controls easy to access.
We wanted a fun air rifle for backyard plinking fun that can shoot both BBs or Pellets, pest control around our garden and Koi pond and the MK-177 fits the bill perfectly.
User hostile gun
The gun is supposed to be easier to pump than the M4-177. I tested this and found both are the same in how much effort it takes to fire the gun. So in reality this gun isn't as innovative or new. Out of the box it was user hostile and needed significant modification before it was even near useable.
Personally I think Crosman needs to get rid of some of the empty promises on this gun. The bb/pellet selector needs to actually work or go away. The magazine needs to be removable for storage, The tabs I ended off removing need to go away, and the front sight needs to be reworked so it is useful, and they need to rethink the butt stock storage area. And the cocking knob needs to be put back on the right side of the gun where it isn't so clumsy to get at.
Would I recommend this gun to a friend YES but I would tell him the truth about the FPS!
Nice and powerful!
All things considered, it is a cool looking, and powerful rifle. I guess I'm just a little disappointed by comparing it to my airsoft version, which has the weight and feel of the real thing. I'd say this is definitely a nice pellet/BB gun, but the price just seems a little on the high side.
