Solid heavy feel, nice finish, nice wood stock, very accurate after 100rd. break in period. Got it for $115 with a good 3x9 scope. Just using open sights for now, but plan on installing 3x9 scope soon. Make sure to use blue loc-tite on scope mounting screws, cause this thing has a .22mag. type recoil to it. Decent trigger for a gun this cheap. My STOEGER X20S, has a heavier, nastier trigger, and was much more expensive! This is my first nitro-piston gun, and I really like it. It does have a smoother, but heavier cocking effort than compared to my stoeger. I say the noise level is slightly louder than the stoeger. Every pellet I shot through it at 7gr. or higher hasn't gone super-sonic. (above 1075fps.) All in all, for the money this gun is a steal. BUY IT YOU'LL LOVE IT.
The stock open sights are cheap plastic, but usable. If your mounting a scope anyway, who cares!

Shipped with some flaws but overall great value

Let me start by commenting on the quality of the scope. Considering most air rifles come with "throw away scopes" this 3-9X32 Centerpoint Scope is not only sufficient for this air rifle , but can also be used for rim-fire or even larger rifles. My air rifle did come with some gouges in the wood stock, although it was not worth my hassle so I didn't even contact customer support therefore I can't comment on whether Airgun Depot would have made it right. Shipping was fast so I was plinking four days after receiving the rifle. Accuracy seems good, but I'll need more time to find its preferred pellets. Overall I would recommend anyone looking for air rifles in this price point choosing this rifle, and with the free upgraded scope this is a great deal.
Great scope. Nitro piston will be great for leaving rifle cocked when hunting for prolonged periods.
A little louder than I'd hoped, but comparable to most other air rifles. My unit had a damaged wood stock.

My previous airguns have all been pump type Daisy or Crosman from the local dept stores and I've had them since I was a teenager. My last gun was a Crosman 2200 Magnum which is the 2100 in .22 caliber. This gun as far as I am aware is no longer made and something went wrong with mine. It's started spraying pellets and I couldn't count on it to kill anything anymore so I decided to get a break barrel style to replace it. First of all, if you're reading this review and contemplating a nitro piston gun over a spring gun, GET THE NITRO PISTON. It's well worth it for reduced recoil and the action is just much nicer. The Vantage wood stock is really nice compared to plastic that I'm used to and the trade off is weight. This gun is heavy! I'm not a stick man so I'm fine with it but it's not a light weight gun. The included scope, while relatively cheap, seems to work great and is exactly what I would buy if I were shopping for a scope for a pellet gun like this. Not expensive but very effective for killing rodents in my yard. I really like the click adjustments and the illumination. It has worked great so far. I don't see the need for a real Leopold or something like it for what I'm doing with my gun. So far I've maybe shot 70 pellets through it and I've been trying a variety. The piston is starting to break in and get easier to cock. I much prefer the break barrel action to pumping the gun 8 or 10 times to shoot and the increased velocity and GREATLY increased accuracy are big bonuses in my book. The Nitro piston is much nicer than the spring action in my brother's Gamo and I'm very glad I went with it over a mechanical spring gun. I had it sighted-in with Crosman destroyers but after around 50 rounds it started shooting high which means to me velocity is picking up as the piston breaks-in. I'm ordering the specified Crosman oil for the chamber today. I've tried numerous other rounds including the SSP pellets which are fun because of the loud crack, but I haven't hit anything with them yet because of the reduced weight. They shoot much higher than the destroyers at the distances I've been practicing. Overall I'm very pleased with my purchase and the only other consideration I recommend is getting a model like the Nitro Venom without any open sights if you don't plan to use them anyway. You get the benefit of a brake on the end of the barrel instead of the glo site and possibly reduced firing noise as a result.
Powerful, accurate, quiet, smooth and good looking gun.
A little heavy

I have the Nitro Trail 22 that I have been very happy with but I also wanted a 177 air rifle. This was listed on the daily deal with the upgraded scope and just appeared to be a great value. I have had this rifle for about a month and have only shot around 75 rounds using the Crosman hollow point pellets. The Vantage is smooth, accurate, quiet and about 2 lbs. lighter than the Trail. I have also been pleased with the scope. Even though the Nitro Trail 22 is still my first choice for varmints I do see the weight of the Vantage rifle as a big plus and this is just an all-around great air rifle for the money when you consider the upgraded scope and that it has the nitro piston.

First Impressions
August 7, 2013
This is my first adult airgun. I bought it for hunting small game (squirrels and rabbits) and pest control (ground squirrels and rats). This review is only my early impressions of this gun as a first time adult airgun shooter for those who are considering buying this gun but who may be wavering because of a lack of reviews on this particular model. I have a background in firearms so most of my comments should be taken with that in mind. I just got the rifle today and right out of the box I could tell that this was going to be a real shooter. It has a very similar weight and feel to my dad's old Mossberg 640 KC .22 mag Chuckster. I have read in other reviews of people complaining about the included scope. When I took the scope out of the box and saw how nice it was I had to give a little chuckle. It is at least 10X the scope that came with that old Mossberg lol and that thing could drive tacks at 100 yards. I know that airguns scopes have to compensate for a different kind of recoil than firearms but I am betting that a little bit of loctite on those mounts will be all that's needed to make it stay put. Only time will tell. As for the gun itself it is very sturdy and well put together. The wooden stock is nice enough if a little plain but as somewat of a traditionalist I like it a lot more than most of the tactical type of stocks found on other rifles. The satin finish on the stock has no glare which is good for hunting if not for showing off. The buttstock features a comfortable black textured rubber recoil pad and, shouldering the rifle, I was easily able to get a comfortable stock weld in any shooting position. The barrel is true and the blueing is nicely done with no rust or rough spots. The only thing I can think of to knock this rifle on as far as looks and durability are the plastic sights and trigger guard. I can live with the plastic trigger and maybe even the trigger guard since it seems to be a very hard, tough plastic but the rear sight especially looks particularly vulnerable to breakage under normal hunting conditions such as walking through dense brush, riding in a cramped truck cab and whatnot. With that said the sights were dead on at 10 yards out of the box. As soon as I got the rifle I read through the manual, went straight out my back door and looked for the nearest suitable target. I took a quarter size plug out of a black walnut at ten yard first shot. No great feat but impressive for an out of the box airgun. The caveat is that accuracy was not consistent. I went out and found some hedge apples to shoot at (about the size of a big golden delicious apple) and it took me a few shots to zero in on one. Then I shot at another walnut at about 15 yards and I knocked it out of the tree in one shot. The good news is that Crosman says in the owner's manual that accuracy would not be consistent until the nitro piston has a chance to be broken in after about 100 shots. So, again, only time will tell. As for loudness, the report of the first shot was in the ballpark of a .22 lr but not quite as much "crack". After about 30 shots it quieted down to about the same level as one of those "snap pops" you can buy at super markets around the fourth of July. Not bad at all and I expect it will get quieter the more I shoot it. It has a surprising little kick to it for an airgun but nothing compared to even say a .22 mag rifle. I like the safety being next in front of the trigger but I wish they had provided a little more room between the safety and the trigger or not made it perfectly flush with the trigger so it would be easier to disengage with gloves on. More than likely I will be tempted to just leave the safety off when shooting in very cold weather for that reason. Something I would normally never do. The last thing that I will comment on is that it takes quite a lot of pressure to break the barrel on this gun even after 30 or so shots. Not really an issue for me but something folks should be made aware of since some might not like that. I have a feeling that it will get easier once it gets broken in some. I hope I haven't jumped the gun with this review since I've only had the gun a very short time. Hopefully it will help out some of you who are wondering about the minor particulars of this gun if you don't have a chance to handle one up close. I will write a follow up review and post some pictures when I've had a chance to put the gun (and scope) through its paces in a true field test. Happy shootin'. - Stu from Kentucky.
Well made, Nice Scope, Good weight and feel, & Iron sights as well as scope, Powerful, Accurate out of the box
Plastic sights, Inconsistent accuracy (until broken in?), Safety hard to disengage w/ gloves
