This particular Crosman has its ups and downs, but I definitely think it's worth the money.\nTHE PROS:\nThe gun is very accurate. It's construction is a very durable, one-piece plastic shell with all-metal mechanics. You would seriously have to try and destroy it on purpose to break it. The buttstock is pretty comfortable and the pistol-wrist hybrid grip feels great to the touch. It can fire a multitude of pellets (works best with Destroyers, I think), and is great for hunting small game and target shooting at medium to long range. The scope is just a standard 4x32 (consider investing in a higher-powered one) but it comes with a very clear and crisp objective and optical covers. The best part is the sheer power. It isn't even a Nitro Piston and it still gets 1200 feet\/second!\nTHE CONS:\nI was surprised at how heavy this gun is, but the only bad thing about that is the fact that your arm may become tired if the shooter frequently fires from a standing position. Resting the gun on something does the trick. The Fury fires at around 90 dB (a normal conversation is 60 dB), so it's pretty loud and could potentially scare off squirrels and what have you. The scope is relatively difficult to sight without help. I managed to do it myself after around an hour.\nFinally, the barrel break is tough. Be sure to put the buttstock on your leg before pulling down on the barrel; you'll need the leverage. I recommend that people ages maybe 12 and up use this gun for that reason. Be sure to tighten the scope on very well; it has quite a bit of recoil to it, ergo the scope can slide off if not tightened properly. All in all, the cons are pretty much negligible. Just be prepare to carry around a 6.4 pound gun.\nMY VERDICT:\nGreat gun! Defiantly for those interested in taking their airgun experience to the next level, though. It does not make a very good beginning gun, so opt for a Pumpmaster 760 or something first. I've only had it for a few days and can't seem to find anything wrong with it. Pretty affordable price, too!
I picked this gun up today at my local Walmart. Bought it on a whim not really expecting alot in the way of performance just some plinking fun at best. I went out to shoot in my backyard as soon as I got it home and was amazed at the accuracy of this gun, at least beyond what I expected. My intitial shots were taken at about 15 feet from a shoot-n-c target. I tried some pointed Daisy pellets first, which are not exactly top of the line target pellets, and got a 1\/2\" group with a dead center bulleye. Since I losing light, I switched to BBs just to see what would happen. I got the same results! I backed up to about 25 feet and got 1\" groups! With BBs! And all this with open sights! These shot were a taken from a standing postion, unsupported. From a bench rest would probably be tighter. If you could hit a pop can that far away with the BB guns I shot as kid that would be pretty awesome.\nThe cons of this gun are; 1. the stock is pretty short , but since there is no recoil, it is manageable even for a full grown man. 2. there is no windage adjustment for the rear sight, there is elevation adjustment, but I'm going to mount a little 7 dollar tasco scope that I bought with it, so I'm not concerned with sight adjustment, apparently not needed anyway. So, if you're looking for some plinking fun and casual target shooting get this gun! By the way, I gave it 5 stars because it measures up to everything it proports to be, not comparing it with any other gun. There certainly are much better guns out there, but for this price there aren't.
I had a simular bb\/pellet gun 30 years . This one is very simular. both work the same, very good. The power is controlled by the number of pumps. Pellets are loaded either singular or in a 5-6 pellet clip. The bb's are loaded in a larger chamber and allowed to load into aupper chamber for more rapid firing. All in all, it functions as descibed. I am very pleased with it.
Great value for this rifle. The trigger leaves a little bit to be desired and I'm cautiously optimistic about how long this rifle will work for as I've read some other reviews about things going wrong\/breaking after little use. It's fairly accurate but is very heavy. I bought a sampler pack of pellets in trying to determine the best size\/shape\/grain. Definitely a big difference in the size \/grain of certain pellets. The heavier pellets help with reduce the noise level. The lightest pellet (~13 gr) I sampled had a VERY loud shot compared to the heavier pellets (~18 gr).
dont buy this gun buy a crosman fury, the scope that fits this gun's needs costs about $50 so youre wasting money on it, with a corsman fury, youre not wastin g money, same fps and performance with a free scope instead of wasting $50 on one for the Crosman Fury
I read some reviews about this gun and decided to order it. It is very light weight and easy to shoot. I also ordered 2 of the 3-packs of clips which worked out great because I can shoot 60 to 65 shots from 1 co2 cartridge. My son and I had fun shooting this gun. 12 shots as fast as you pull the trigger without reloading. THE BEST FOR THE MONEY. Also quiet for air rifle; pellets hitting milk jug were louder than gun to me. Try this gun out and have fun plinking.
First things first, this is an LPEG (Low Powered Electric Gun). People must realize that this is a $40 starter gun and must stop comparing it to MPEGs (Medium Power Electric Gun) which run $100+. Most reviewers who call this a bad product is due to the fact they are comparing apples to oranges... dollar burgers vs a Red Lobster meal. (it is at least a $60 difference vs MPEGs Medium Powered Electric Gun)\n\nNow the product...\n\nCrosman Pulse R73 Airsoft AEG Repeater\n\nThis is a great starter level airsoft gun, perfect for younger kids and the part time airsofter who only plays 4 times a year or so. (Airsoft rentals average about $40) It also makes a great \"secondary\/backup\/sidearm gun\" if you already own a good gun.\n\nThe scope is not a real scope, its actually a gravity fed hopper where the ammo goes. It does have a \"sight\" that you could look through a scope but real scopes for LPEGs are a moot point anyway. (they dont shoot that far)\n\nPROs, CONs, and Neutral\n\nPROs\n*lightweight - carrying this gun in an all day airsoft war is a breeze. (also comes with a functional sling)\n*High Capacity - 500rds - this gun holds a lot of ammo, guaranteed to last at least an entire skirmish\n*Retractable\/Removable Stock - The retractable rear stock is a godsend, comfortable and versatile.\nIt is also removable for tight places or thick brush.\n*Accurate - Yes, the gun is accurate provided you use 0.20 gram ammo. 0.12 ammo scatters randomly after 20ft and causes the gun to dry fire, and 0.25\/0.28gram ammo will make the range 20 ft. 0.20 gram ammo gives the best result for this gun, 50ft to 75ft effective range depending on the conditions.\n*High Rate of Fire - it has a high rate of fire\n*removable\/replaceble hand guard - the hand guards can be replaced with most M4 hand guards. I replace mine with picattiny rails and install a hand grip.\n*Price - $40 for this gun is a great price\n\nCONS\n*butt stock wobbles (which is normal even for higher priced guns... not really a CON)\n*Plastic body (unit can get damaged if trampled on... but any airsoft gun breaks if trampled on)\n*short range - yes it has an average effective range of 50ft - but I've had multiple kills with this gun against people with $200 guns. (a tool is only as good as the user)\n\nNEUTRAL\n*Low FPS - 225fps - if you are a pro-airsoft guy then this is bad news, too weak, low penetration (but if you are pro airsoft player you shouldn't consider an LPEG in the first place.\n\nIf you are a parent the low FPS means this gun wont break skin and will minimize breakage if they ever hit anything of value\/glass. (MPEGs and HPEGs will literally disintegrate a soda can\/shatter glass with sheer power and rpm)\n\n*Gravity Fed - gravity loads the next bb into the chamber, which means extreme angles (up or down) and this gun wont shoot. (its a rare occasion that you have to do that anyway)\n\nOn the plus side, it means you dont have to stop to \"wind-up\" your clip (takes about 10 to 20 seconds), to shoot again, vs a quick shake of the gun (about 2 seconds) to keep firing. There has been instances that I didnt have to do that either.\n\nBottomline, even though this is an LPEG, I have no qualms using it (I have HPEGs and MPEGs) nor letting a friend borrow it for gamedays. I am even seriously considering purchasing a second one.\n\nWithout disparaging any product, this is the best gravity fed LPEG for under $50 in the market. Get it!
I have a Crosman 1377 and now the 2240. Both are great accurate pistols to shoot in the basement. Great for teaching kids gun safety and fun to shoot. The best value for a great well made pistol that will last a life time.

What our shoppers say:
It is meant to be used for an air soft, or BB gun, but can also be used with small to medium sized pistols. That is what I purchased it for. If you are looking for a high end tactical holster this isn't it. But if you want a usable holster for the lowest possible price, you won't be disappointed.
I ordered this product with a two week delivery time. It was suppost to be deliveried on 5\/10. Today I'm still waiting. If your smart you will order it directly from Crossman. I ordered from Walmart because it was $10.00 Cheaper. My mistake. I did rate the product because I have a Crossman Powermaster 66. I have used it for over 20 years. I know that Crossman product are worth the money
If you are a beginner in airsoft this is the gun for you. Its the best gun at walmart other than Black ops M4 but other than that this is the best. Buy this gun and you will win every battle. Every time a bring this gun out at an airsoft war it has never let me down or jammed. The fps is great for the price and now my friends are getting this gun. Buy this gun!!!
