Nitro Venom Dusk (.22) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent gun, terrible scope I recently purchased the Nitro Venom Dusk .22 equipped with a 4x32 CP scope. The gun itself is awesome. I find it easy to break open, it looks great and is very quite, however the 4x32 Center Point scope that came with the gun is less than adequate. I managed to align it get a 1'' group at 15 yards but the view is extremely blurry and I could not get it focused. This scope is inadequate for hunting small game. Crosman should provide a better quality scope with this gun or any of it's high powered air rifles. I will be replacing this scope with a higher quality one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, accurate, joy to shoot I have the lil brother of this gun, the Fury NP in .177. I liked that gun so well I wanted to jump up a notch. Glad I did. I must have got a one in a million because from the time I started shooting this one, its been accurate and the trigger is really good. I have shot maybe 150 pellets so far and once I had it sighted up, its been accurate. I hate to admit it, but the trigger from the first 10-20 shots is as good as its lil brother after shooting over 500-600. Upon opening box, I took the stock off and lubed the trigger action. I know, I voided any warranty. It was well worth it. Second, before I ever placed a pellet in the gun, I ran several patches thru the barrel to get rid of all the packing grease. I reassembled the gun to the stock, oiled the hinge point for the barrel and wiped it all down. I grabbed my Crosman Hollow points and I went shooting. I started out at 10 yards for initial sighting in. After about 10 mins. I was moving the target down to the 30 yard spot and I was in the 8,9, and 10 spots on my target. I admit I was in a hurry, it was 97, and the clouds was rolling in for a mean storm to drench the area. I managed to fire off about 45-50 more before the weather chased me back inside. Today I managed to get a solid 80-90 shots off after my backyard wasnt a swamp anymore, I got bored with the paper targets, I grabbed al the empty pop cans and any empty food cans to hit. I love watching them dance. I managed to place several of my shots in the middle of the bottoms of the cans several times. I was using both the Crosman Hollow Points and H&N Crow Magnums. Since I have a scope with mill dots I learned to use it to get both pellets to hit in almost the same spots. The H&N's are a heavier pellet, and the cans proved it. I couldn't be happier with my 2 Crosman's. Once I learned to hold them properly. and make sure my cheek hits the same spot every time, my shooting became better. I know my guns are the first generation NP's and my goal in the near future is to purchase a NP2. The only drawback to what I am shooting now is the fact that I had to really upgrade the scopes, not due to clarity of what I am shooting at, but the vibration that is nature of these guns. On the plus side of both guns is how hard and how accurate they throw lead down range. This gun is so much better in so many ways than the old springers, and from what I can tell, just as accurate and powerful as some of the PCP's. On the other hand you dont have the extra cost of the PCP guns and all the related gear you have to have. With either one of mine, grab the gun/s, a tin/s of pellets and you go shoot. All in all, I say get this .22, I think you will like it. I think the value for what I paid is more than worth it. Just know your milage may vary.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for small game. I purchased this rifle not long ago and I must say it stops the small game dead in it's tracks! The piston recoil isn't all that bad and it's quit smooth, however I agree with the other reviews the scope that comes with this rifle is not the worst however it is almost impossible to zero in at any range.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great gun. Junk scope I have had my nitro venom dusk for about a month now. Overall the gun is really good. Plenty of power and accurate until the scope fails. Wish it would have come with the 3-9x 40 ao scope the crossman used to offer. That was a much better and more durable scope. I have about 500 rounds through it and I'd say that the break in was relatively fast and at about 100 was shooting very well. I originally wanted the Benjamin nitro trail xl but found this on clearance at the local runnings store. I would recommend this gun to anyone looking into a nitro piston gun but would recommend purchasing a better scope right away. Would be nice if there was a place to demo these guns before purchasing. The trigger is horrible without modifications but All in all a good deal at the price and does a number on small game

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well it is...... I originally bought the rifle one year ago that had the CP 3-9x32 scope on it and the thing was deadly for red squirrels. It went through my house fire and I lost it. Now the 4-32 CP scope on the new one is messed up. Turn the turret up, the crosshairs go down and vise verse. You cant sight the thing in. I am not happy with the scope at all.
