It's easy to use and delivers hours of fun. Just because it was used by the Boy Scouts- don't think it's just for kids. This rifle will become a favorite of kids- teens- moms- dads and senior citizens!
Low on noise- the 1077 won't disturb those with sensitive ears or alert everyone in the neighborhood that you're shooting. This air rifle will surprise you with its accuracy. Use good quality pellets- put a drop or two of Crosman Pellgunoil on the tip of each CO2 cartridge before inserting it into the gun- and the Crosman 1077 will deliver years of fun shooting and dependability.
The 12-shot rotary clip is easy to load. For even greater accuracy- mount a scope on the 11mm dovetails.

*Your box and owner's manual may show a lower velocity- which Crosman states as "average velocity." However- 625 fps is the max velocity with lead pellets. If you shoot as fast as you can pull the trigger- your velocity will be lower. Since CO2 is a refrigerant- you will receive somewhat fewer shots and lower velocities compared with waiting 5-10 seconds between shots. This applies to all CO2 guns.

needed to push the pellets all the way into the clip. The gun is ideal and the grandchildren and their mom's and dads love shooting it as well.
The first thing I did was mount a 4X scope out of my parts drawer and try some shooting in my garage range.
I was pleasantly surprised with some 3/8" 5 shot groups and a couple of overlapping hole 3 shot groups.
I mounted a UTG 3x9 bug buster scope. Get a bug buster with adjustable objective as it can focus the target plane down to 3yds so great sight picture for a close range pellet gun) with a dual illuminated red and green wire MIL dot reticle - it is a perfect scope for this rifle. UTG also offers different magnifications in the bug buster line. TIP- get the UTG 11mm to 20mm low profile adapters so you can use the included 20mm scope mounts on the 11mm 1077 dovetail.
Sez the 61 year old plinker!
So, it's OK - but at $99 it's too pricey, especially with the M14 at 20 bucks less and the awesome QB78 with a really nice stock and all-metal construction. Shoots hard and accurately, but the sights are simply dreadful.
