Get the .22 Caliber Crosman Nitro Venom Dusk Air rifle to humanely dispatch small game like possums, raccoons, and ground hogs. The Nitro Piston Technology has proven to be a valuable aid to hunters. There's nothing worse than knowing your metal spring might be fatigued and not provide the power and energy you need to humanely dispatch your prey. The Nitro Venom Dusk has a high velocity of 950 fps that will allow you to plink and shoot targets as well. With a gas piston, you'll always have the same power and never have to give shooting the Nitro Venom Dusk a second thought because of the reliability and consistent power of the compressed gas.

Solid Spring Piston rifle
June 4, 2014
Shot great out of the box. Minor dieseling for first 50 shots or so. Trigger is decent for a Crosman. Scope is a good beginner level scope. Accurate out to 50 yrds or so. Velocities are inflated and measured using the lightest pellets available. Actual Chronograph numbers for 14.3 CPHP's were around 720 FPS. Firing cycle is nice, definitely hits hard. The welded scope rail is a welcome addition on a spring gun be it spring or gas piston.
Pros:
Scope rail
Cons:
Heavy Inflated velocities from Crosman

Love this gun
January 14, 2014
I've owned many firearms but this is my first pellet gun. I don't see how this thing can only be $150. For target shooting the trigger pull is a little long and hard but other than that I get amazing groups at 20 yds utilizing the artillery hold. I've seen the scope being reviewed as horrible or just adequate, but I think the scope is very satisfactory for the total price. I had originally planned to upgrade the scope when the gun was in the mail but now after shooting it seems more than serviceable. After debating on doing the washer trigger mod or buying charlie da tunas trigger I decided to go with the mod. I ordered both a 5x8x2.5mm and 5x9x3mm rc car wheel bearing so we will see how that goes. I've only shot Crosman premier hollow points and they seem to shoot extremely well.
Pros:
Accuracy Price Scope(for the $$)
Cons:
Trigger

This is a break barrel with a unmounted CenterPoint 3-9x32 Scope with Mounting System .It's accuracy improves after break in,I seen where break in is about 100 shots but I found this to be about 50.
Cons:
Trigger pull

Easy CHEAP trigger fix (don't waste your $)
July 9, 2013
For a while I was a little skeptical about buying this rifle because lots of reviews say the trigger is horrible and being 13 years old, spending an extra 40 bucks for a charlie da tuna trigger was just a big waste of hard earned cash. So I searched around on Youtube for a while and stumbled upon a video by Chris Mcaal he explained that inserting a small washer in the trigger basically made it a hair trigger! I was getting tired of the crappy crosman trigger. It made shooting with accurately almost impossible, So I thought I would try it out and IT WORKED! In fact, it works very well! It is extremely smooth and breaks at the same point every time. As for the Nitro Venom itself, I could not be any happier with it, it's quiet powerful and most importantly...accurate.
Pros:
Very well balanced, the widened stock helps promote the artillery hold, lots of knock down power, very accurate
Cons:
nothin'

Best Return on Investment
April 12, 2013
Bought mine to eliminate pest pigeons. The accuracy seems to grow stronger after the first hundred shots. Great buy. Very tight shot group at 100 feet, overlapping most of times. Good to teach youngsters the basics of rifle shooting.
Pros:
easy to cock tight shot groups
Cons:
location of safety (akward for GI)

What a deal, Quiet, Powerful and Accurate.
November 23, 2012
I got this gun from Airgundepot on their daily deal or $129. The price is so cheap. I tried out several different pellets and found Crosman Premier .22 Hollow Points work the best. I have no problem hitting my targets over 100 yards. I've actually hit a crow from 200 yards. I've been using my Bushnell Pinseeker for yardage. It's for golfing, but works very well. For the price you get for this gun, it is excellent. The only thing I didn't like was the trigger, it is too long and somewhat inconsistent.
Pros:
Price, power, accuracy, and smooth.
Cons:
Trigger sucks. Found a solution from youtube; by inserting small washer to the trigger mechanism, it really smoothed everything out. Crosman should do this to all their rifles or this type of trigger. Also, the safety is not automatic. Be Careful.

Stock nitro venum 0.22
March 3, 2012
Overall the rifle is good. After about 150 rounds the gun will shoot a 5/8 group at 10 meters. The velocities were 680-700fps with the crossman HP 14.4 grain pellet. The trigger pull average was 3lb 12oz 3/8 stroke. Im sure if you used a more consistant pellet and put a good trigger in it the groups would get a lot tighter. I'll let you know how it goes.
Pros:
The gun is smooth shooting and cocking,
Cons:
The scope should be an AO type, focus at less than 20 meters is limited if you have to adjust the eye piece for reticle focus.

Best crossman rifle ever
January 9, 2012
this gun is amazing. crossman really did a good job this time with their nitro piston technology. it also shoots a .22 cal pellet which really helps when shooting game. i would love to have a nitro piston rifle because they are better than the spring rifles.
Pros:
power nitro piston .22 caliber

Is it a good gun and is it worth the price?
By Conor from Sunnyside, Washington on August 25, 2012

Answer:
It's a good gun, seeing how it's nitropiston, it's worth the price I think.
By Stephen from Channahon, Illinois on August 25, 2012

Answer:
I believe it goes beyond being a good gun, it's excellent. When you look at other .22 pellet rifles with as much power as this one the price is quite good. It's on the heavy side but very well built. Accuracy is quite good, the scope it comes with is adequate, not the best but that's the trade off to keep the package competively priced.

By thomas from PEI on March 7, 2012
what is a nitro piston and do you have to refill it ?

By Staff on March 9, 2012

Answer:
The nitro piston is a sealed gas chamber that is used in place of the spring chamber that you would see on other air rifles. The gas in this chamber is not used up and thus never needs refilling. The way it works is the gas chamber is compressed like the spring chamber would be and when the trigger is pulled it decompresses, once again like the spring rifle would.

Will this take out a racoon?

By Staff on June 11, 2012

Answer:
This gun would be able to take out a raccoon if you were close enough and accurate. I doubt you could kill one more than 20 yards away.
