We sell thousands of BB and pellet guns but Crosman 357 Magnum is our #1 selling air pistol (and has been for years). Many customers write in to say they were skeptical at first because the gun was priced so low (it seemed cheap) but after handling it they were blown away. Weíre not sure how Crosman has been able to manufacture such a top quality air pistol and priced it so low but our in-house gun specialists, who review every time we carry, are confident this is the best quality air pistol you can buy for the price. Crosman also just updated this popular model to include a tactical rail. Now you can mount red dot sights or other optics to the easy to use weaver rail.

This full-sized pistol is constructed with both cast metal and plastic. Gun barrel is 6Ē rifled steel and grip is synthetic. The front of the pistol is plastic, while the main part is metal. The Crosman Vigilante 357 delivers a realistic shooting experience and shoots up to 435 feet per second (FPS). It is powered by a CO2 cartridge that can be found in the gunís handle

To get the most out of each cartridge (and extend gun life) add a drop of Crosman Pellgun Oil on tip of each CO2 cartridge

Pellets are loaded into a 10 round circular clip. The rear sight is fully adjustable, rare for a gun at this price-point. Feel free to add a red dot on the 3/8" dovetail.

Getting the Crosman Vigilante 357 ready to shoot is a breeze. Simply remove handle grips to load CO2. Then, break open front of revolver mechanism and pop in a preloaded circular clip. Close and commence shooting.

The feel, shooting and trigger action of this gun is so addictive weíre betting youíll go through several rounds of pellets. Be sure to order extra CO2 and pellets for more non-stop fun. Weíre not saying this for nothing, every day we see recent Crosman 357 buyers return to purchase extra CO2 and pellets.

Frequently Asked Questions

Rafael from Ennis, Ireland asked: What Type Of CO2 Suits This Gun Best?

Staff: 12 Gram Crossman CO2 cartridges are the only ones thatíll work with this gun. Each cartridge gets you around 70 shots. Note: CO2 cartridges arenít included with order. Most Crosman 357 buyers also purchase extra cartridges (this saves you on extra shipping fees).

Daniel from Melbourne, Australia asked: What ammo do i need for this and also how much of it i would need?

Staff: You can use any .177 cal pellet, though it is not recommended to use pointed pellets as they can get jammed. When you click ADD TO CART button we show the option of adding Daisy Match Pellets (500 ct) .177 cal to your oder.

Great pellet pistol for fun and practice.
January 17, 2012
I started to look more seriously as CO2 pellet guns this fall, as I wanted something that I could help my girlfriend with shooting basics. I wanted something that is life like and she could practice both double and single action shooting with, and is also accurate. The Crosman 357 is very realist in it's size and function. Of course it's a pellet pistol, so it has limitations relative to actual firearms. However, when used responsibly, and within in the capabilities of a CO2 pistol, this is a GREAT platform to brush up on shooting basics, and have a bunch of economical fun in the mean time. And the package through Airgun Depot, is the BEST deal on this piece that I have seen so far.
Pros:
Accurate Realistic Long list of favorable customer reviews Double and single action. Fun Economical
Cons:
Plastic barrel Cannot think of many.

Still Goin' Strong!!
November 20, 2011
I bought this gun on August 5th 2009 and it still works perfectly. I am still using the ORIGINAL rotary clip that came with it more than 2 years ago!! I have shot 1000's of pellets with this pistol, and I have not had one problem (knock on wood). I have oiled the pistol and cleaned the barrel...that's it!!! This has been one of the most trustworthy air pistols I own. I'm still partial to my Beeman P1, but that pistol isn't a CO2 pistol either... Even after all those pellets, I am still using the same rotary clip from 2009......I think that's incredible!!! Don't you?? I suggest you buy this gun. Great craftsmanship, great price!! See you in 2013!!!
Pros:
Price Durability Looks
Cons:
I HATE PLASTIC GRIPS CO2 Powered paint chips easily

Excellent pellet gun
November 17, 2011
Overall this is a very impressive pellet gun. The action is smooth with a crisp, light single action trigger pull. The accuracy is excellent, especially once you find the ammo it likes the most. The addition of three spare cylinders is an added bonus. Buy with confidence.

A Pleasant Suprise for a Low Price Crosman (better than some more expensive Crosman guns)
November 1, 2014
This is not an airgun I would have bought for myself. I like powder wheel guns well enough, but in air guns I'll take accuracy over magazine capacity. The only reason I bought this gun was because my wife expressed an interest in pistol shooting one day when my son, my dad, and I were shooting airguns out the back door of the shop. I spent some time looking at various air pistols after that. I wanted to find something that shot well and she would like to shoot. One day in a department store she saw a wheel gun style CO2 pistol on the rack, and commented that she liked the look of it. Well, you know how it is. You better get what the wife likes in your hobby or your hobby is probably over. I ordered one. When it arrived I let her open it, read the instructions, load it, and fire it. She can shoot ok, but she is not a shooter if you know what I mean. She is definitely not an airgunner. Loading magazines with pellets was easy enough, and the pellets stay put. Putting the CO2 cartridge in is a bit awkward since you have to remove both grips to tighten the cartridge into place. I imagine keeping them on after the gun gets well worn could be an issue. Loading the gun is the big problem though. It takes a lot of force to open the gun. I could do it consistently, but it took enough force to put a dent in my thumb each time that stayed for several seconds. My wife could barely open it at all. After a couple times she just handed it to me to open so she could reload. I think if you don't want to wear out the catch you miught want to hold it down to close the gun back up as well. I found I tended to have the magazine pop out and tumble across the floor when I opened the gun to reload. The hand that advances the cylinder works fine and seems to index adequately either single action or double action, but there is no bolt to hold the cylinder in place when the gun is at rest or when its cocked. I like the cross hammer safety. I totally prevents the hammer from touching the knock valve to discharge the gun. It reminds me in function to some of the .22 powder guns we used to sell in my dad's hardware store. If you have the safety on, it would be very difficult to have an accidental discharge. I do have to say though that my wife and I both fired it a couple times with the safety on to be disconcerted a bit when the safety did its job. The safety is a very good working feature. My wife put the first 60 rounds or so through the gun. I set some aluminum cans between the shooting bench and our backstop at about 25 feet. Shooting double action she hit them some of the time. Shooting single action she hit them most of the time. I really didn't expect any better than that. After a while she offered me a turn. I wanted to see what I could do. The first thing I noticed is the sights seem to be a good match with each other. After the disappointment shooting my much more expensive 2300T I was very pleasantly surpised. Shooting single action I hit the cans with every shot. After they fell over I proceeded to try and hit one end or the other to walk them down the course towards our backstop. Out to 40 feet I hit them with nearly every shot with a little hold over as they got further away. At 50-60 feet I hit them more than half the time. Misses were mostly because holdover became unpredictable past 40 feet. For a cheap gun accuracy was pretty good. All shots were fired standing with basic two handed cup grip. Later I put a fresh cartridge in the gun and made a few shots over the chronograph with Crosman brown box 7.9 grain domed pellets. The first shot registerd at 485. That had to be a fluke, because subsequent shots ran 395-420 when shooting fairly quickly with most being around 400. That allows for the claimed 435 FPS to be true. I would also add that I am sure the ease with which you can rapid fire this gun will affect its velocity. If you waited 45 seconds or so between shots for the CO2 temperature to equalize to ambient I am sure speeds would be more consistent. Overall I have to say the base gun or the package with extra cylinders and a holster from Airgun Depot is a good value for the price. Atleast the one I bought is. Its fun to shoot. Its modestly accurate. It meets its advertised claims or comes close, and it seems to be reliable. Don't get me wrong. Its not a match gun. Its a cheap plastic assembley. I expect a kid (one responsible enough to use a pellet gun safely of course) could wear it out blazing away all day long quickly enough. As long as somebody doesn't have unreasonable expectations I could certainly reccomend this gun to a friend for short range firearms proficiency and target practice.
Pros:
Modestly accurate. Nicely proportioned sights. Easy to shoot. Good safety. Power close to advertised specs.
Cons:
Have to remove both grips to load CO2 cartridges. Very hard to open gun to load cylinders.

Nice looking gun unable to provide consistant accuracy.
September 13, 2014
I bought this gun today, spent about an hour trying to zero it. The shot group is more like a shotgun than a pistol! My Crosman 1377 although is pump action, it is HIGHLY accurate. This one is not! I'll admit that I had fun loading 10 pellets and then shoot them rapid fire! Yeah, I can consistently hit a pop can at 25 feet, but my fellows and me regularly get together and shoot airguns. I could call and hit the Camel's head on a empty pack of Camels at 25 feet with that 1377. I doubt if I can with this one!!! Maybe I was lucky with my particular 1377!
Pros:
Nice CO2 action! Fires 10 .177 pellets in succession! As fast as you can pull the trigger!
Cons:
About as accurate as a BB rifle!

Older Model
August 28, 2014
I bought a Crosman .357 replica in the early 80's and used it for over 20 years before the screw thread on the CO2 keeper failed. I didn't try to fix it as the more-urban environment I moved to gave me less need for this small caliber. I killed grouse and squirrels (takes a head shot on the latter) with that gun and spooked the moose out of the yard so they wouldn't thrash the ornamental trees and shrubs. I disliked the variability in the charge over time and, with age, it leaked more CO2 than it launched pellets with. On the plus side, it was a six-shooter. Very much nicer than a single shot break barrel, esp. when you're in the woods for small game. Having read the reviews on this current model, it seems that the older unit had a better grip (one side removal for loading CO2) than this one. I'm looking to re-enter the market and will give this some consideration as I do my research, though I'm leaning towards a break barrel.
Pros:
Multi-shot cylinder; excellent velocity & killing strength.
Cons:
Cylinder bleed, though another review mentioned a drop of oil on the cyl tip.

inexpensive and it is fun.
August 21, 2014
Ask many have described it to be fun and it is. It is accurate for small target around 35 feet. It sounds nice. The trigger and hammer has a good feel to it. It is pretty solid, except for the plastic grip. I don't like the cheap plastic grip that is not very secure. The combo is nice. I had purchased an additional 6 more pellet clips for reloading. I could get a good 70 solid shots or more out of 1 CO2 cylinder. I will definitely recommend others buy this for educational fun and recreation.
Pros:
Good price for the product. It is solid for the most parts. It shoots straight. It sounds nice, and the semi auto and single shot option is great. It is fun to shoot. You will using so much pellets and targets and co2 because it is fun.
Cons:
Close look at it, and it looks fake, and the cheap plastic grip that comes apart if you bump into something.

This pistol is awesome ! It's easy to load and change the rotary clips, the Co2 is easy to install, and you don't need to carry an allen wrench with you to change the Co2cartridge, the key is built in. Their also pretty accurate, im doing really good with mine. I won't shoot bb's with mine, I heard it's bad for the rifled barrel to shoot bb's. Anyway, these are wonderful pistols, and I give them 5 stars all the way. Dennis, Red Bluff, Calif.

WOW what fun
May 25, 2014
We have had an older steel version for over 12 years. Saw this one on sale and bought 2. What fun. Much easier to change the gas cartridge, no screws to mess with. The power is great with a fresh cartridge and stable all most to the end. Bought 20 extra clips, because reloading is a bore. Buy this gun, just for the fun of it. t At 10 two 20 yards very accurate and adjusting the sights is a breeze. Haven't tried it closer.
Pros:
Light weight fun.

Impressive Performance!
March 26, 2014
Shooting pellets from this gun is ALMOST as much fun as shooting a real .357 Magnum. The main draw (pardon the pun) is that the pellet gun is much quieter, has no recoil and I pay no range fees. It handles beautifully due to its light weight and comfortable grips. Shot groups with 7 grain RWS Hobby pellets in my initial test were 1.0” to 1.5” from an admittedly very short five yards. 70 shots were fired from one CO2 cylinder before the trajectory dropped off to an unusable level. At that point, the pellets landed on the floor about five feet from the muzzle. Having four, 10-shot pellet disks with which to quickly change made shooting those 40 pellets extremely convenient. Although no BBs were shot in my initial test, I did load the one included BB disk with Crosman premium copper-plated steel BBs and they fit perfectly with a very secure grip. I’m looking forward to shooting them from this gun to see how their accuracy compares to that of the pellets. I also want to chronograph both ammo types to see how each does. The factory sights are entirely adequate. Although accessories for aiming may be mounted to the standard Weaver top or bottom rails, the added expense would equal that of the gun itself, making that proposition uneconomical unless they were borrowed from a real gun. For now, the “iron” sights are completely satisfactory. One added bonus is that the used pellets may be collected, melted and molded into bullets to be re-used in a real .357 Magnum. What more could a person want?
Pros:
Weight, comfortable grips, accuracy, satisfactory "iron" sights and zero recoil.
Cons:
Sound pressure level too high for indoor shooting without the use of hearing protection.

Canada doesn't like it ...
February 22, 2014
I carry this gun in my car for low level security purposes when traveling. Our planned border crossing into Canada at Niagara Falls on our return from the east coast, gave me 2 options: surrender the the gun or do not enter. We returned to Illinois via Ohio instead. Canadian Border security tipped me(with a smile) that the gun looked "too realistic"
Pros:
Great purchase ...well built, especially for the money.
Cons:
cylinder is just a bit tricky to reload.

I am a woman who loves to shoot guns :-) This is great gun to practice with without the expense of high dollar ammo prices. I found it to be quite accurate, easy to load, just all around easy to work :-) It's nice to have a pellet gun that shoots more than 1 pellet at a time. The other great thing is that if you leave it laying around, it's quite intimidating because it looks so real and it is a good size gun :-)
Pros:
Ease of use, good power, accurate, good looking gun
Cons:
Nothing... It's a pellet gun :-)

I have really enjoyed shooting this gun and have put a lot of pellets through it without any problems. Can't beat it for the price and seems to be better quality then some others. The accuracy is quite good and the power seems good as claimed in most reviews. The service from Airgun Depot was great. The only issue I had was having to deal with FedEx with shipping to Canada. Which caused delays because I had to be phoned to clear customs and pay an Advancement fee plus all taxes. It would be great if you would ship with USPS which eliminates the extra cost and hassle. By the time I payed the extra fees the price was the same as here.

I recently bought this and I have to say, as soon as i got it out of the box I loved the look and feel of it. I took it outside, messed with the sights a bit, and hit a can from about 50 feet away. The accuracy, feel, and sound of this gun is just phenomenal. The only bad thing about it is the fact that you've gotta load up those little clips over and over, but there's nothing that can really be done there. I recommend this gun to anyone who has a "cat problem", or just wants to shoot targets and stuff!

Crosman 357 Co2 Pistol Kit
July 24, 2013
Great air pistol-a little hard for me to pull trigger- maybe I have a weak index finger. Main purpose of our use is to kill bulfo toads; they would take over unless eliminated and are poisonous to dogs and cats.

Cons:
As I said, the trigger pull is a little hard for me.

Great value!
July 9, 2013
I own four high quality ($150 ) CO2 pistols and the Crosman 357 shoots as well as any. The Crosman 357 is made of plastic, does not have the heft and realistic feel of my Walther and S&W air guns, but it sure does shoot. Both double and single action trigger actions break nicely. Double action is smoother than my Walther P99. Groups at 25 feet hold in the neighborhood of 1.5 -2 inches with the point of impact changing little through 55-60 shots. I have put three tins of Crosman hollow point pellets (1500 shots) with no jams, failure to fire, or indexing problems. This gun is a super value!
Pros:
This pistol functions flawlessly! It is well designed, manufactured to good tolerances, and just plain works.
Cons:
Plastic is the primary material used in the manufacturing of this gun. It feels like a toy.

Almost as good as the real thing!
April 19, 2013
I grew up shooting Smith & Wesson revolvers: a .22 K-frame from about age 7, and .357 L-frame and N-frames starting about age 13. I still have that .22, and recently got a Ruger GP-100 .357, so I'm well versed in powder-burning double-action revolvers. I live in the city and can't run off to the pistol range as often as I like, so I bought this airgun in hopes that it would be a reasonable substitute for practicing in my garage or back yard. So far, I'm quite happy with it. It's lighter than an all-steel 6" revolver, but not so much that if feels like a silly toy. (The weight is probably equal to or greater than some of the light-weight aluminum or plastic frame powder-burning snubbies.) Except for the almost complete lack of recoil or need for hearing protection, it is very close to shooting a "real" revolver. The trigger is surprisingly good for an inexpensive airgun. It's not as slick as a well-preserved fifty-year-old Smith & Wesson 8", but in single action it has virtually no creep and a break that occurs midway between the force needed for my K22 and GP-100, probably around 4 pounds. The double-action trigger is also OK; again, not glassy but not nasty either. DA reset is a little flaky. Accuracy is pretty good. Not competition grade, but for other purposes, you're not likely to be disappointed unless you are a VERY good pistol shooter. So far, I've only shot it in my garage at 15 feet, which is closer than I ever shoot my powder-burners, so I can't directly compare, but I think it is not much different. I have more varieties of pellets than I've had time to really test yet, but Crosman Premier hollowpoints seem to work well. Groups are consistent without obvious "flyers" so the mechanical accuracy of the gun should be good enough to ensure that most of the error comes from the shooter, which is what you need for training. When cocking the hammer, it swings off a little to the left, which looks a bit weird, but doesn't seem to be a problem. I had to adjust the rear sight groove a bit to the right to zero the point of impact, which I *think* is the gun, not me, since my .22 pistols do not shoot to the left. For such an inexpensive airgun, I can't really complain about these points. I got a Crosman 1088 at the same time as the 357, and the 357 is considerably better overall, particularly the trigger action. For a child or very small adult, the 1088 might be a better fit, since the grip size and trigger reach of the 357 is not tiny. Unless the extra size and weight of the 357 is a drawback, it is a better choice for shooting enjoyment. Added bonus: The included holster fits my Ruger pretty well. I don't have another holster for that, so when I went to an informal gravel-pit shooting range recently, I carried the Ruger in the Crosman holster. Now I just need to cover up the "Crosman" logo on the holster! Or maybe not, since I don't mind saying that this is a pretty respectable airgun.
Pros:
Accuracy. Realistic single-action trigger with acceptable feel. Made in USA.
Cons:
Finger grooves on the grip. I prefer smooth grips so my fingers can be placed where ever feels right to me, not forced to conform to the groove spacing. A minor annoyance. Double-action trigger reset is not as positive as on my powder-burning revolvers. Sometimes I fail to release the trigger far enough to make the next shot work, so maybe a slightly stiffer spring would be better. If I could rate the pistol 4.5 stars, maybe I would, but this is not worth taking off a whole star.

sweet plinker and small pest revolver
April 10, 2013
Had this gun about 6 months and haven't had a single problem with it. It's a great looking and feeling gun. It is very accurate at 20-40ft, you can hit things from further. I like that it shoots pellets because I can have the variety you don't find in BB's. It also has a metal trigger and hammer which is nice. It's quick to reload a new rotary.
Pros:
Accurate Powerful Well made Looks cool
Cons:
a bit large sight is hard to see

Buy this gun!
March 30, 2013
My wife bought this for me as a gift and we've laughed at the realistic size, feel, and looks! It's almost caricature-like. For the money, it was worth the laughs alone, but that it came with a holster and 3 -10 pellet clips (plus one in the gun). Made it even sweeter. It shoots far and straight, right out of the package. I can shoot about 80-100 pellets per cartridge. I've never had a Co2 charged pistol so I have nothing to compare, but I'm very pleased with 80-100 and it's easy to reload both the pellets and cartridge. So far I've plinked cans, boxes...no animals yet.
Pros:
Good price for the gun, holster and 4 "clips" total Easy to load Fun to shoot single or DA. Feels great, looks great Lot quieter than my Gammo Hornet
Cons:
I keep going back to it, picking it up for a laugh. Can't put it down yet.

Crosman 357 Co2 Air Pistol Kit
March 21, 2013
Great gun! I get about 100 shots per Co2 cartridge. The first 50 to 60 shots are great. The rest of the shots slow down but can still hit target at 20-25 yards. The rear sight mount on mine had casting ridges causing the sight to sit cockeyed but sanded down ridge and is great. Would recommend buying extra mags so you can load enough to shoot through entire Co2 without having to stop and reload all 4 mags. Buy 2 extra sets so you have 10 mags. They are just over 4 bucks for 3 mags and buy a lot of pellets and Co2 or a thing of BB's (though a bit tricky to load they work fine through the gun).
Pros:
Look Amount of shots
Cons:
casting rigdes

Cool Gun, A Blast to shoot, one doubt.
March 19, 2013
I bought this gun because it looks awesome, which it is. The weight to it is rather nice, the action operates smoothly, and it was accurate right out of the box. I can plink tin cans like crazy with this thing from quite impressive distances (for a Co2 pistol). It has not jammed once on me yet, but I take care of it. This thing is a ton of fun to shoot. I started using Crosman Wadcutter pellets and they worked pretty well. I've switched to Crosman Premier Lead Hollow Point Hunting Pellets. It is suggested not to used pointed pellets as they can jam, so I found these hunting hollow points that are domed. It's like a Wadcutter had a baby with a Pointed Hunting pellet, and so far they work great. I find them more accurate than the wadcutters, harder hitting, and I would guess they'd get more range. The only thing that irks me about this gun is the dang plastic handle grips that house the Co2 canister. I've shot maybe 1800 rounds through it so far, or around 25 Co2 canister replacements. It seems to me like the plastic grips seem to hang on less and less tightly with each change, and I try to be gentle. The hand grips are also kinda pesky to get off anyhow. I'm just worried that one of these times they'll come off for a Co2 change and won't hold on when I replace them to shoot. Almost wish I would've purchased a single-shot pump pistol. I'd save money on Co2 and also on ammo. I wouldn't feel the need to shoot 70 rounds each time I use it in order to avoid leaving a full Co2 canister in for too long. Also, it seems the pump pistols fire pellets at significantly faster speeds.
Pros:
-Great to shoot -Worth the money for the amount of fun -Overall just a good, fun buy. -Semi Automatic
Cons:
-Plastic hand grips feel they'll fall off. -CO2, semi-automatic (feel sketchy leaving a CO2 canister in if I won't use my gun for a while and I don't want to ruin my seals). -Burns through ammo quickly

Crosman surprise!
January 30, 2013
The thing shoots great right out of the box after it is sighted in. Find it a little light but a good deal with extras clips and holster. Thought I'd try one because of all the good reviews. I had read up on it they were true. It is a good shooting pistol and frankly a bargain! It out shoots my D/Wesson $120.00 BB gun, in fact all my other BB pistols! I get 60 strong shots before Co2 weakens one thing I did do was add a small white dot on top of ft. Sight and painted grips brown with darker brown streaks to imitate grain with acrylic artist paint, looks great! All in all a fun pistol, if it holds up I'll probably buy another for my brother.
Pros:
The trigger pull is right on for me, like it is the best out of all my air pistols. It also has decent sights and shoots pretty darn accurate!
Cons:
Has a plastic look that is kind of hard to get over with at first but shooting it. It's all about the accuracy for most of us! Then there's value, for value it's hard to beat! Only minus I got is loading pellets will never be fun but the extra mags and 10 shots each helps!

I purchased this gun maybe about 2 weeks ago. Ever since I've got it and opened the package, I can't stop shooting it. It's fun, reliable, durable, and powerful. I was surprised at how loud it was for being a pellet gun and it also had a small kick. It's very realistic and I believe is worth every penny it's priced for. I definitely recommend this to target shooters or even people who just love to go out in the backyard and have a little fun.

AirgunDepot price beats big box retailer hands down
November 20, 2012
I found the kit price, plus shipping to be one cent more than a big box store beginning with W, selling the gun only, so I got 3 extra clips and a holster effectively for free. The 357 is a great gun. Co2 loads with out any leaking, supplies 60-70 good shots. Clips load easily, never skip unless you pull the hammer back far enough to advance the clip and then not shoot a round. The gun sights in quickly. The gun is just plain more fun than it should be... lets you feel like Dirty Harry without the liability (or expense) of a center fire hand gun.
Pros:
Accuracy Price Power Reliability 10 round clip

Big grip big value
October 25, 2012
I shoot ruger 22 semi auto and a 22 revolver and the crosman feels very good and is accurate. The sights are adequate. The grip is much larger than both of my 22 hand guns. I emptied 4 clips twice, 80 rounds from 1 cylinder. It was getting week at the end of the 80 rounds. The holster is good. You need to put the gun completely down into the holster. I have holsters that completely cover my other hand guns, but they are large. I like this open end holster better. I will use this holster for my 22 revolver, it is smaller and lighter. Got the product quickly.
Pros:
Can not beat the price for this gun, three extra clips, and holster. Riflling makes the gun accurate, 10 shot repeater, fun to shoot (4 clips equals 40 rapid shots). Good training gun for my grand kids. Double and single action. Has block safety (you can see it is on).
Cons:
Grip is very large for smaller hands. Double action is very hard pull, but is safer for training.

Be realistic about your usage
September 22, 2012
Right up front, I will say, I would not recommend this air pistol to anyone who would like to use it to hunt. Plinking, informal target shooting and shooting steel inexpensively perhaps, but no hunting. It would be a little too up close and personal for it to make a really good snake pistol. With the .177 caliber and heavy roundnose pellets, which realistically would not gain enough velocity to penetrate too well unless real close, so no to hunting with it. Outside of that, we have the plinking, target shooting and perhaps even setting up some air pistol steel plate shooting. During warmer days, your shot count can be nice, up in the 70-80 pellet range. CO2 is very temperature dependent. I will usually stop at 60, as that is a nice round figure for shooting. If you've been smart enough to read a few of the other reviews, you would know that buying an extra 3-pack of the pellet magazines does come in handy! Remember to add a tube or two of Crosman Pellgun Oil to that too (a little goes a long ways, so a couple tubes should last you a while unless you are shooting this dandy revolver a lot). Now, a word about the one thing I'm not fond of, the grips. Modeled after the Hogue Monogrips, I consider them to be a little too big for my medium (7-1/2) sized hand, and so I took the advise of the last gunmaster, gunfight survivor Jim Cirillo. He advised to fit the gun to your hand by placing the trigger finger on the trigger (unloaded, of course!) and then grip the revolver. Since, for Double-action shooting, it is a bit of a stretch, I found his advise to be an interesting test of shooting skill and merit. By placing the first joint of the trigger finger to the trigger's face, then taking a grip, I'm learning to hold it well without fighting my hold to work the trigger. Honestly, I wish Crosman would fix that little problem with smaller grip panels that sit flush like they previously offered.
Pros:
Price Fun factor
Cons:
Grip size

Fantastic Value for the money
August 23, 2012
Have owned this nice 357 pellet gun for over a month now and am impressed with its performance each day I shoot it . Packs more than enough power and I believe a bit more than the 435 fps it boasts . A bit 'light' but it's probably due to the plastic barrel . Once the rear site is adjusted for the pellet weight you use it's " on the mark " every time . I finally found my gun likes those cheap crosman wad cutter pellets you can get for $4.77 for 500 . So i have been ripping targets to pieces ( just the centers ) .... Well worth the low price airgundepot sells for, plus I got mine in 2 days . Good service and great gun . Just ordered another set of 3 spare clips .
Pros:
single and double action trigger nice included holster and 3 extra clips adjustable rear sight easy co2 install in the grips break barrel to quickly re-load
Cons:
don't have any dislikes

The crosman 357W6
August 7, 2012
I would have given this pistol 5 stars if it still had the 8" barrell or at least the option to purchase one. Other than that I love this gun even though it only has the 6" barrell, I tried to get one from crosman but they don"t seem to put much thought into their customers wants or suggestions. This will be the last crosman product I buy for that reason alone. you would think that they could see $ signs in having that option.
Pros:
Accurate, hefty and when using the crosman hollow point ssp ammo this pistol slams silhouette and spinners , I think more than 435 fps I use a center point tactical red/green dot sight mounted on a weaver rail and did not have to adjust it at 25 feet to hit the targets. I don"t care for the plastic combat grips either thier should be grip options as well as barrell options, but I"m only a customer not a crosman C.E.O.
Cons:
The barrell lenght , again I prefer the 8" barrell, also the grips feel cheap

So much fun!
April 26, 2012
Just got it in today. Took it out for a test run and it worked flawlessly. Took me 2 tries to get the co2 seated tight enough for it to puncture, but that was just out of caution. (Didn't want to over-tighten right off the bat) It was quite accurate for being right out of the box and not making any sight adjustments. One 12g Crosman powerlet lasted for 84 shots with the outside temps around 80F. I purchased the additional 3pk of magazines so I had 7 total. Fired through each of those and reloaded all 7 again. Fired the 8th without problem, but on the 9th mag. I could tell it was struggling to move the pellets (thought it was jammed at first since the pellet had moved deeper in, just not cleared the mag) The holster fits, but is VERY tight. I expect it to get a little better with time as it loosens up. As of right now, it takes 2 hands to work the material past the magazine, and the muzzle has to be coaxed out of the bottom. Again, it's a nice holster, but will need some loosening up before it'll work well.
Pros:
-Accuracy without adjustment -realistic look (little too light in the barrel for the right feel) -10-round mag. is very convenient (buy extras, you'll go through them QUICK) -realistic feeling single/double-action
Cons:
-Unrealistic weight. The handle is too heavy when compared to the barrel so it feels kinda odd (especially if you've shot a real revolver) However, it's not a real gun, so can't expect perfect realism. May look into finding a way to add a little weight to mine tho.

Great target shooting/fun airgun
March 30, 2012
Recently got this Crosman 357 and i love it! It will perfectly fit both people who are just starting their experience with Co2 guns and those who have been into it for years. To start with - the price. You get much more than you pay for. This gun is pretty accurate, uses co2 moderately, has a great realistic look (about the look - a little later) and is as simple as a brick, so even a kid can use it without any problems. Reloading both clips and co2 cartridges is quick and simple. And this gun is capable of using both pellets and BBs, which is a big advantage to me. Double action trigger makes it good for target shooting or just destroying a bunch of cans :) Plus this gun is scopeable (which i wouldnt do, because i like the way it naturally looks, but the opportunity has to be). What i do not like about this gun is: plastic barrel, plastic grips - the gun LOOKS real, but feels a bit like a toy (i personally prefer it to b as close to the real model as it can be... Thats why i also got a S&W 5866, which is full metal). But again, for the price you pay (For S&W 5866 you'll spend about $230)... This 357 is AWESOME!
Pros:
Accuracy Ease of use Price Great LOOK Quality
Cons:

Ordered three different models and different makers before settling down to re-order another Crosman 357 Magnum 6". After shooting all three,one priced $60.00 higher and one about $5.00 lower, I agree with the reviews that I read, after the fact, that this is a really nice pistol. My grandsons agree and will most likely be recieving this model for Christmas. They both shot very straight out of the box and required vey little tweaking to shoot an acceptable group.
Pros:
Great value, especially the kit with extra mags and holster. Easy to load and reload with extra Mags. Nice to have more than 6 shots per Magazine.
Cons:
Removing the hand grips to change the Co2 Cylinder takes some practice, but they snap back on securely and provide a comfortable fit.

Wasted Money
February 27, 2012
Have had this pistol for about a year now. Saw a snake near my grandson and used it to try to kill the snake. Wouldn't kill it. Pulled it out the other day and the first pellet fired ok, then the next few pellets fire without any velocity and the pellet veers left. Waited a few minutes and the same thing happened. Changed CO2 cartridge and the same thing. Sights won't stay fixed, continually adjusting them. Just use it for paper targets now if it will even fire straight. Don't waste your hard earned money on this. Invest in something better. I know I am.
Pros:
Price
Cons:
Sights continually needs adjusting, no velocity after first pellet is fired, pellet veers off to the left drasticly.

Has anyone bought this from this website that lives in New Jersey?
By Staff on January 9, 2012

will it kill varmints
By Eddy from Plano, TX on November 15, 2011

Answer:
I only use the pistol for target plinking and do not shoot at varmints but the pistol certainly seems to have the co2 power and accuracy to do serious damage to small animals if correct hunting pellets (pointed, hollow or round faced) are used.
By Sue from Westchester NY on November 15, 2011

Answer:
I am hoping so, that is why I bought it. My exterminator seems to think it will work.
By John from Tucson on November 15, 2011

Answer:
Gophers and pack rats, yes. Some doubt about anything much bigger
By tom from marietta, georgia on November 15, 2011

Answer:
The barrel is long enough to hold steady with your free hand to assure greater accuracy. I love this gun, and use it strictly for squirrels. I am a senior, and as such, my hands are not as steady as they were once, so I miss a lot, which gives me a chance to squeeze off several shots just for the fun of it. If you miss the squirrel, he will jump. Be ready, fire, you have enough pellets to possibly catch him on the run. Great fun gun.
By Don from Auburn, WA on November 15, 2011

Answer:
YES, DEFINITELY...at435fps and MANY ammo choices for the ways you will use this gun,I'll let the MANY positive reviews speak for themselves!

By Zane on February 16, 2011
Overall, you can't beat the value of this gun. I've managed to kill a bird with it in one shot, so it's perfect for pest control.

By John on November 26, 2010
Not only is this an intimidating pistol, it also goes with me when I hunt. Last year I had to use it with gamo raptors to deliver a finishing shot to a groundhog. It did exactly what I needed it to do. Finish the job.

By Tyler on September 21, 2010
This gun is excellent for the price. The body, hammer, and trigger are all metal. This gun has great weight and power! I killed a bird easily and i can't wait to see a squirrel.I would recommend this to anyone who is looking to hunt, plink, or just get some practice with a good weighted gun.

By jon on August 11, 2010

By Nick on June 26, 2008
powerful, accurate. good when in single action, double action is inaccurate. killed a chipmunk w it, so it is pretty powerful.
By Tim from Idyllwild CA on November 17, 2011

Answer:
My short answer would be "absolutely yes". I haven't had it for very long and so far have only done about 50 rounds at targets at 30' or less testing the action and different types of ammo. Initially I was concerned that the magazine seemed a little loose and thought there might be issues with the rounds lineing up with the bore. Those concerns were put to rest after loading it up and the first test fire. All 10 shots fired clean and in a tight group at a 25' paper target. I would suggest getting out some white or orange paint to tip the front sight because the flat black on black slows down the sighting at a dark target. I find that edging the inside of the rear and a small center stripe on the front speeds up the sighting considerably. I used the old soup can method to test penitration and was impressed with the results. The regular copper plated steel BB tore through one side and still put a signicant dent on the back side of the can. The soft lead and tipped pellets, being much softer, had a lot more "impact" on the can but not as much penatration as expected but have no doubt that it has all the knock down power needed. Meaning that I made a lot of trips to set the can back up after the shot. So back to the "will it kill varmits" question, I have no doubt it will do the job.

Is it worth the money? How long does it last?
By Gavin from Brooklyn Park mn on August 24, 2012

Answer:
I have put over 1000 rounds through mine and haven't had a problem, and it seems to be worth the money. I can shoot inside a nickel 4 out of 5 at 10 yards. Just oil the gun like it says Rem oil works fine.

By Craig from Elburn, illinois on May 8, 2012
The seal leaks. Where can I get it fixed and is it worth it.
By Staff on May 9, 2012

Answer:
If the seal leaks, that would have to be repaired by the manufacturer (replaced). depending on the gun, it can cost around $20. I would recommend contacting them and then deciding.

By Kennedy Mattox from Branson, Missouri on December 17, 2011
