This gun has been around in brown for decades, and now the classic is available in all black. Don't underestimate this gun just because it's inexpensive and has a plastic stock. It's gained a faithful following because it's so much fun to shoot. Since you can vary the velocity with the number of pumps, just about anyone can shoot this pistol. If putting 5 pumps is too hard, then shoot it with 3. No need to get maximum power to do some plinking and target practice.

No doubt the fpe was up there with magnum rifles and I got over 800 fps with beeman Kodiak 21.14 rain pellets. simply wonderful.
I bought a cheap Crosman BB/pellet rifle several years ago to shoo away the magpies that were roosting on my car. A few months ago, I brought it out of storage to deal with some pesky crows, and quickly realized that it lacked any kind of accuracy. After shopping around, I settled on a Crosman Nitro Venom in .22 and have been fairly happy with it, and it inspired my interest in air guns. I'm an avid shooter, but the price of ammo, as well as the hassle and expense of getting to a range or forest area had limited my ability to stay sharp on my guns.
I recognized that not only are air guns a lot of fun, but they can also be used in the backyard where I live, ammo is dirt cheap, and the skills transfer very nicely to real weapons. So I decided to add a pistol to my armory. I'm very happy I decided on this one. I bought a steel breech with it, and some other upgrades, but haven't installed them yet because I'm amazed at how accurate and fun to shoot this gun is right out of the clam shell. It is super quiet, and pumping it up is not nearly as hard as I had anticipated. With the optional shoulder stock, this little gun converts nicely to a carbine, and could undoubtedly be used to take small game. If I'd started with this one, I probably never would have been motivated to try others. With the steel breech, it accepts a scope and with the shoulder stock can function like a rifle. For that matter, I like it better in many ways than my Nitro Venom, because it can be used with open sights.
This is rated at 460 FPS, but with Crosman Hollow Point pellets I measured a maximum velocity of 425 FPS using 10-pumps.
I have since modified this, replacing the plastic breach with steel, 10.25-inch barrel with 23-inch (with a 5.5-inch muzzle break) and the plastic barrel band with aluminum. With these modifications I get an average 500 FPS with Crosman Hollow Point pellets.
Being able to control the power is good for indoor shooting. For a relatively cheap pistol the accuracy is incredible. The 1322 is one of the few guns that favor the left handed shooter with the placement of the cocking mechanism. Most of all it is a super deal and fun.
We've done a lot of plinking, pest control and close range hunting with these pistols and can't speak high enough about them..... Great quality stuff!
The gun itself is a blast to own and it is nearly a tack driver. The rifle stock and other stuff is just icing on the cake. As with my 1377, I took it out of the box, sat down with a tin of Crosman Premeirs & a couple of screwdrivers, and within 10 shots had it sighted perfectly. A favorite pass-time, much to wifey's chagrin, is tossing out something smelly and picking off the flies from my easy chair on the patio from 10 yards away with it. There are multiple airguns in my safe, most of them WAY more expensive than the 13xx's, and these are the ones I grab 4 times out of 5.
Thanks also, Air Gun Depot, for offering this package at such a bargain, (I didn't see it still available anywhere else, even at their higher prices), and for the GREAT service! This was my first purchase from you but I doubt it will be my last.
I have killed many birds, rabbits and squirrels with this airgun.
For the size, weight and ease of operation and durability - this is the only airgun of it's type I need. It is easily packable for travel and has an amazing amount of options in weight and type ammo.
In the three pictures is one target shooting at 20yds using pellets - Gamo "Blue Fire" on left and Gamo "Red Fire" on right. The "Red Fire" ammo is much tighter grouping (more accurate). All of the pellets are completely embedded in the 3/4" plywood backstop.
Based upon comments discovered in my pre-purchase research, I had considered the HB22 for better quality. I felt like I was taking a chance with the 1322, and expected a much less solidly built piece than what I received.
In particular, I had looked into wooden grips and charging handle before the piece arrived. But now that I have the real unit in hand I am not so sure that wood furniture would be anything more than a cosmetic upgrade (as opposed to a functional upgrade for strength). Yes, the plastic does "feel like" plastic to the touch, but I get no sense of "flimsy" at all. This wood / plastic thing with the 1322 made me laugh in contrast to the trend among shotgun owners to strip off their classic wooden furniture, and replace it with plastic to get a "tactical" look. I am guessing it is just one of those "grass is greener" and "tinkering" things that makes folks want to make those kinds of changes. There are much worse hobbies, I suppose.
My assessment so far is that Crosman has done an excellent job of keeping costs down while delivering a quality, functional product. After firing enough rounds to get comfortable, and hitting what I wanted each time, I am excited that this piece likely will provide me hours of relaxing plinking in my basement "range" and help deal with the tree-rat menace around my home. Even the negative comments about the trigger pull are nowhere near what I have experienced so far - I suppose I got lucky??
Airgun Depot did a perfect job on my order. It was shipped the morning after I placed the order over the internet, and arrived exactly on the day projected. The price was the best I could find, and I believe that I received excellent value for the ridiculously small amount of money I spent for a fully functioning piece capable of delivering double-digit ft-lbs on target consistently.
it is awesome. punches holes in cans way bigger than .177
shooting a bar of soap with both calibers will show you the benefits of the .22 pellet for fpe or foot pounds of energy...fps not as important
