Fire NP is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hard-hitting and Tight Groups I bought the Fire over a year ago and it seems to be getting better with time. The optimum distance for me is between 17-30 yards, but going farther is not impossible if you shoot pellets that will stay accurate at longer distances. At the range, I will go out to 60-75 yards, but compensate for trajectory. Best pellets for accuracy will be in the 8-10 grain range due to the power of gas piston. Quiet enough for backyard plinking. Scope is fine to 30-ish yards, and doable further out in very well-lit areas. Plenty inexpensive scopes to replace it with. Rifle is definitely worth buying, just need to master holding it correctly. I use a small bean-bag forend rest.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well built powerful rifle. Bought this rifle several months ago and it is a sturdy well built air rifle. The scope and rings are not the best quality however. The rifle takes some effort to cock at first but gets easier as you shoot it a little bit. Unfortunately the scope and mounts kept working loose after shooting and needed to be re-tightened several times. I couldn't get the scope to zero properly, it shot low no matter how much I'd adjust the crosshairs. The sticky pads in the mounts kept working out as well. Eventually I added a shim to the lower rear mount and this helped zero the scope normally so there is some apparent barrel droop with my rifle. So far I've used Crosman pellet (Destroyer, Premium Pointed and heavier Beeman Pointed). So far the Destroyers work the best out of the 3 types I've used.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Airgun -Solutions to Some Problems This was the replacement for a Christmas gift (Marksman Model 90) that stopped working the second time I used it. I returned it to Dicks where the gift was originally purchased and got the Crosman Fire NP and I have not been disappointed. The Fire is a quality air rifle with an acceptable scope. It took a little while and some research to get good with it because spring/gas piston rifles are a different breed due to the inherent double recoil. You must grip the gun lightly and use an artillery hold. If you hold the gun tightly or press it tightly to your shoulder, you might as well be throwing rocks at your target. Regarding the long second stage of the standard Crosman trigger, which also impacts accuracy, the 3x5mm adjustment screw just doesn't cut it. To get enough adjustment, remove the screw and replace it with a 3x8mm screw. This shortens the pull on the second stage to an acceptable level, potentially increasing accuracy. Lastly, you really do need to find the pellet that works best in your particular gun. You would think that if the Crosman Pointed 7.4gr pellet works best in mine it should work best in yours. Not so with pellet guns. I am very happy with my Fire NP, but I also have a Daisy 880 and and an Umarex NXG APX that I shoot a lot. I'm still more accurate with the multi-pump air rifles, but I wouldn't trade in my Fire. It is considerably more powerful than the multi-pump rifles and I'm getting better with it every time I use it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not consistant accuracy I tried sighting in the gun with the factory scope. Hits were randomly all over the target. So, I went back to the store and bought a real scope. Some improvements to the shot pattern - I can hit a 4" target with each shot hitting in a different place and yes, I'm using a bench! So I called support and was advised to try different bullet shapes (I have) and that I should shoot several hundred rounds thru the gun before I even think about putting the scope on to sight it in. Just sitting in the backyards for hours pumping rounds thru it should increase the accuracy because it needed a break-in period. Really? Here it is time to go hunting but I still have no accuracy in the rifle. If this is normal then I will not buy another one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just a plain FANTASTIC pellet rifle! My oldest son has a Sheridan "Silver Streak" 5mm pellet rifle that I bought for him when he was 8....he's 52 years old now. We frequently get together on my remote Montana home-site for target practice. I had been using a BSA 22 caliber pellet pistol, and just couldn't hold my own against him. Ah ha...Murdoch's in Missoula, MT had a special buy sale on the Crosman "Fire"...and I couldn't pass it up. Replaced the scope that came with the rifle, with a 3X9 variable rim fire scope....73 year old eyes needed the higher magnification. Proud to say my son hasn't won a "competition" since I bought the "Fire". Accuracy, out to 35 yards is beyond belief, plenty of power, solid construction, quiet, economical....and just plain fun to shoot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! Purchased at Cabelas in Montana for Midwest use. Very powerful, decent scope so far but have only shot maybe 10 times but averaging 7 out if 10 perfect targets acquired at 50 feet. Haven't tested accuracy distance further. Going to look into a bipod maybe. But overall it's a great buy for the price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Piece of junk! For the first month, the rifle was decent, regarding accuracy, but afterwards I couldn't hit the broad side of a barn. The scope and scope rings kept moving with every shot, even despite the retention pin! Spent over there times what I paid for the freaking thing on a new scope and countless scope rings and rails. Even had a professional gunsmith inspect the rifle and even he was at a loss. I even epoxied the scope rings to the receiver with steel epoxy and the scope rings were still destroyed! Save your money and don't buy this piece of junk!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Rifle for the Price I bought this rifle about 8-9 months ago from an academy sports. At first it takes some getting used to thehard trigger pull, but after using it several times it isnt so bad. Follow the directions when it comes to sighting it in, DONT TRY OUT OF BOX. I shot my gun probably 50-60 times, reoiled it, cleaned it, and then attempted sighting in. I had decent luck with the factory scope but had slight issues with the scope rings. I replaced with a Winchester Air Rifle Scope and rings from Academy Sports ~$50, Locktited them in, and now I couldnt be happier. With Crosman Hollow point 7.9 gr pellets I can cover 5+ Shots with a quarter at 25 yds. 50 yards I can hit about a 1.5"-2" group. I wanted to sight in with these pellets because I wanted the hollow point to hunt with. Many squirrels, doves, rabbits, etc have met their demise with an easy one, well placed shot. Cocking is relatively easy and gets easier after its broke in. This is wayyy better than my old rifle I had to pump 10 times when I wanted to reload for much lower velocity. In summary, I use the ammo that I wanted to hunt with to sight in, but would be open to suggestions on those farther shots. It gets more quiet and more accuracte after its break in period. Replace the scope and rings. Follow Crosmans instructions. If you do these things, you will be completely satisfied with this rifle. It is great for $150. If you want more, then go buy a $900 gun. As for me, I use my Crosman Fire NP almost everyday!!! Buy this Rifle over comparable other brands! The pics are right after the break in period, I wanted to check the group at exactly 25yds (per ranger finder). After I new it was this tight, it was a piece of cake to sight in.
