This semi-automatic CO2 powered pistol combines hand-held comfort with quality components, at an affordable price. It features a velocity of up to 480 feet per second and an accessory rail in front of the trigger guard. The C11 also features a removable magazine for BBs, as well as grips that slide back for easy replacement of CO2 Powerlets.
The C11 magazine holds 20* BBs- and the grip panels slide out of the way to load a CO2 cartridge. Texturing and finger grooves make the grip easy to keep in your hand as you pump out the BBs. In front of the triggerguard is an accessory rail. This pistol is easy to use and uncomplicated. If you're looking for a gun that's loads of fun to shoot- this is it! Remember- never shoot steel BBs at hard objects!
*The owner's manual states 18 BBs and also has some incorrect specifications. Crosman has confirmed the specs on our site are correct.
It feels good in my hand. The weight is well distributied. the ejection is easy and smooth and the reload goes in very easily.
It's an accurate gun and co2 lasts.
The trigger is a little long and rough but if you squeeze the trigger, it will hit very accurately.
The Co2 is a little tricky to replace but once you get used to it, it is fine.
If you have the metal clip, it will dry fire on occasion but the plastic clip is flawless.
It has enough velocity to kill starlings and chipmunks cleanly.
Overall very good gun.
Remember, all these tools (like bb guns) are only temporary and are only a tool while we are here on earth.
The only quirk I have been able to find so far is that every time you remove a loaded clip, it loses 1 bb out of the clip. I simply remove the clip and then pour the lost bb out of the grip area and put it back in the clip, no big deal at all. Yep, im givin this little semi auto wonder gun 5 stars.
accuracy is better than I think.
This thing is so fun.
As for Airgun Depot, outstanding in every way. To the point that when I get over this rabbit caused depression, I will for sure buy that pellet gun from Airgun Depot.
After about 20-25 shots, the barrel shot out of the muzzle. It would not function and it could not be forced back into position. It's sad how this disappointed him so quickly after waiting for his birthday.
You can't take it apart yourself or the warranty is void. Taking or shipping it to an "authorized" service center costs more than buying another one. I think they count on that! I took it apart to find it poorly designed and cheaply built. I'm surprised it even made it to 20 shots. It's now in the trash. Son is sad - I'm disgusted.
We don't have a yard and so it took a while until I got to try the gun. During a trip to the desert, my wife and I tried it on a couple of empty aluminum cans.
And we were really impressed by the destruction this little gun did to those cans. At about 10 Yards the BB's ripped right through the cans - even the thicker top and bottom parts of the cans. With a fresh CO cartridge, it's pretty accurate up to 15 Yards and still quite powerful.
Yes, it's cheap, but it's worth the money. So far I had no problems with it. My wife likes it because she's hitting stuff with it easily. That's why I just ordered another one. ;)

I bought this gun because I had good experiences with co2 guns before, so I assumed this one would be the same. HAH! I got it, put in the co2 cartridge that i bought with it, loaded the clip with the BB's i bought with it, took aim, pulled the trigger, and nothing. I tried again, nothing. I thought I screwed it on too tight so i loosened it, nothing. I loosened it more, and still nothing. It got to the point where the co2 had to be leaking from the gun to even have half a chance at firing.
I thought maybe it was just the cartridge itself, so i tried it with a new one, and nothing. I took out the clip and fired, still nothing.
I counted how many times i had pulled the trigger as well as how many times the gun fired, and it fired 1/34 times.
I have two of these fine shooters and one had the irritating loose cover. The fix is SIMPLE. Pop the loose grip off, put it in a bowl of water and nuke it for 3 or 4 minutes in the microwave. Fish it out the the boiling water with some tongs and squeeze it in a kitchen towel until cool. Pop it back on the pistol and it will be better than new. It's not rocket science guys.
-Feels like a handgun. I bought this for training and its working well for gun safety, stance, grip. The metal clips (get extras) are inexpensive, hefty, and well designed. These add to the overall experience of loading the handgun.
- Power is as advertised and you can get over 100 shots per 12 gram CO2 cartridge. The non-blow-back design makes the gun more accurate and conserves gas real well. On a new Powerlet, I can shoot a magazine of BBs clear through a 1 gal. milk container full of water at short range.
- As everyone points out, Crosman should do something about the sliding grip that houses the CO2. I'm thinking of putting a little black electrical tape in there to provide it with a little more friction so it stays snug.
- The two stage trigger can be a problem if you squeeze very, very slowly and if you are pointing at a target that is at any slight incline of the muzzle down. The BB will get moved into the chamber on the first stage and will begin rolling down the barrel. This leads to wildly inaccurate shots. It can even roll all the way out before the second stage hits it with the gas. What I do is just squeeze the trigger smoothly and without much delay. I think Crosman should look into a magnetic retainer in the chamber to prevent this from happening.
Great gun for the price. I really enjoy using this product and spend some time each week with my sons shooting!
