I really like this gun
February 8, 2019
I bought the Ironhide as an upgrade to my Crosman Optimus and was specifically lured by the SBD, FPE and FPS. All of which were rated higher than the Optimus. Right out of the box my first impression was that the Ironhide is indeed a light (but long) gun. My first impression of the thumb hole pistol grip was that the handle part the fits into the palm of my hand was too small, but since then this has been a nonissue and I haven‚€™t thought of it since. I cannot speak to the scope because I upgraded to a 2.5-9 x 50 immediately. The gun is nowhere near being broken in but already putting pellets in nice groups at about 15 yards. I‚€™ve shot three different grains of pellet and my gun seems to prefer a heavier grain, but until it‚€™s properly broken in I really cannot say for sure. The SBD was a little bit of a letdown. I had high hopes for a noticeable difference between the Ironhide and the Optimus, but after a couple test recordings the decibels and duration of noise appear to be very similar. My wife says that from the other room (I‚€™ve been lazy and just shooting out the window) the two guns do indeed sound different. The Optimus has a pop and the Ironhide has a pft, but I cannot hear that difference while shooting and the recordings (taken inches from the barrel) don‚€™t show that to be the case either. I have not recorded any audio from any other distances so I have not been able to hear each guns report from her vantage point. I also have not heard the Ironhide with the SBD removed, so I have no way of knowing how much noise reduction the SBD is actually doing. Everything about this gun is very ‚€œcrisp.‚€ Nothing feels lose or sloppy. The two stage trigger was perfect for me right out of the box. I mounted a bipod with 360 degrees of rotation to the barrel via a clamp-on Picatinny rail... and love it. One thing to note is that with the 9-15 grain pellets (even the hollow points) I was blowing right through the backstop on my target setup. Previously with the Optimus shooting hollow point 7gr pellets, a 1/2‚€ particle board, and a few layers of home made targets drawn on thick cardboard was enough to stop the pellets. An odd shot would crack through from time to time but never pass right through. The Ironhide destroyed that setup so I had to upgrade the particle board to a cedar one. When shot through three layers of cardboard, and the 1/2‚€ particle board the pellets hit the cedar and flatten out completely. Like lead pancakes. It does jump a bit with each shot, but there‚€™s no vibration like my Optimus. The Ironhide is a longer gun so a longer case was necessary as well. To summarize, I really like this gun and think it with fit my needs for a long time to come.

Well Pleased So Far
January 10, 2019
Bought this rifle after reviewing all the gas powered guns. The reason I went with this rifle is because I wanted mechanical sights. I shot about 20 rounds with the open sights, and decided my old eyes ain't what they used to be. I installed the scope that came with the rifle, and it took about 30 rounds to zero in (about 30 yards). After about another 10 or 15 rounds, I was able to hold steady enough to pick the caps off of 20oz drink bottles with no problems. I like this gun. It seems to shoot good straight out of the box, as I had no long break-in period. I am using Crosman Premier Hollow Point 14.3 gr pellets. I bought several weights and name brand pellets, and will update later on how they work with this gun.
ProsGood power, good easy feel. packs a good punch!
ConsA little on the heavy side but not anything to walk away from.
Best UsesTargets, pests, small game.

Scope is junk
December 31, 2018
Shot 5 times and the reticle turned about 30 degrees, first 2 shots were about 2‚€ apart from 15 yards, then really all over the place. Took the scope off and could get a semi decent group.
ConsScope is junk, very disappointed
