When you shoot steel BBs, do not shoot at hard objects or water. The BBs will ricochet! No matter what ammo you're using, remember to wear safety glasses. Everyone in the vicinity of the range should wear safety glasses, even if they're not shooting. Remember to remove all pets from the range before you start shooting.

I have fewer pests around my yard now so my frequent use is now limited to paper and metal foil pie plates. This BB/Pellet gun is VERY accurate when sighted in correctly. Love it and i am looking to buy another one shortly.
Had fun shooting this M4-177 as a beginner and will try other air guns soon. Recommend to purchase additional magazines.
Simple and fun design, sights just like the old M-16 that got me through several years in the Marine Corps and only took a few clips to lock it in. shoots a nice quarter size group at 50 feet.
The heft to the rifle is perfect but make no mistake about it, IT IS NOT A TOY, so treat it as a real dangerous weapon.
Fun to pump the max 10 pumps
I put a red dot on mine
a 3x9x40 scope.
Next I went through my AR parts drawer...Flashlight, Red Laser on a 45 degree
side mount. All of the fun stuff.
My only complaint is that it should be Co2 powered, with a self loading magazine for the pellets. Having to pump it up to 10 times between each round gets old. For plinking, and nuisance bird hunting, (we have thousands of European Starlings around here that get into everything), it should excel.
The M4-177 is the right size for my 3 year old to adjust the but stock and reach the trigger. It also works with my 18 year old too. What more could you ask for!
But I was wrong. It is still an air rifle, plastic and etc. don't get me wrong, but it shoots so accurate
I was amazed. Out of the box, I zeroed it with the blank paper with the cross in the middle, using pellets from free standing position on 30 feet distance. I made a couple of good shots and decided I want to test it on real target. So I bought official qualification air gun rifle 25 feet target and made 5 shots in 5 targets on it.
Well not bulls eyes all of them just 1 shot made to 10 but 3 shots in 9 and 1 made 8 from free standing position on 25 feet. Peep sights from the box BTW not red dot or etc. I honestly didn't expect that accuracy from this toy. Amazing. Don't get me wrong, it is still not competition rifle and not the firearm, but I don't call it toy anymore either.
I wish they would make a version with the spring and the self indexing clip like Baikal's IZH for example. Pumping and you want the same number of pumps which you used during the zeroing the rifle which is 10 for me kills. Hands getting tired and shake and that affects accuracy. I hope I would make all 10s otherwise ;)
The sights are a little hard getting used to but they work.
The M4-177 is based on the Crosman 760 multi-pump powerplant. This is a decades old, tried and tested platform. With proper care and use, the M4-177 should last for many years.
The M4-177 is a very close replica of the military M4 carbine, or civilian AR-15. Some of the dimensions are a little off, such as the pump handle/ heat shield forearm, which is a little beefier than the real steel version, but overall the Crosman offering is a good copy.
The majority of the Crosman M4 is made of a tough engineering polymer, the major exceptions being the internal rifled steel barrel, the steel compression tube, and most of the pump linkage parts. The polymer pump piston is the same as that found in the Crosman 760 and 66/664 series rifles.
This air rifle will accept either BB's -- gravity fed and magnetically loaded from an internal "ready track", in turn supplied by a bulk reservoir in the receiver -- or .177 caliber pellets -- fed via a 5-shot stick magazine, manually indexed. The M4 comes packaged with one pellet magazine, and a sight adjustment tool; both of these items can be stored in the faux "shorty" magazine inserted into the magazine well immediately forward of the trigger group.
Operationally, the M4-177 works just like other, lower-cost multi-pump rifles. Anyone familiar with the Crosman 760, 2100, 66 (664), or Remington Airmaster 77 will be completely at home putting the M4-177 into operation.
The sights are usable, but are rudimentary. Both the front and rear sight are removeable. The flat-top receiver has a molded-in Weaver-style rail for mounting optics -- I prefer to use a red-dot sight on this platform for plinking.
The forward portion of the barrel has two additional Weaver rail for mounting accessories. Unfortunately, opening the pumping arm interferes with the placement of the lower rail, eliminating all but the smallest accessories. The upper rail on the barrel is intended for the front sight, but with this removed, there is room for a flashlight or laser, etc... It would have been nice if Crosman had designed this bit to include the upper rail and two side rails, instead of the lower, unusable rail.
As designed, the Crosman M4-177 will accept most two-point slings, with primary attachment points at the rail adapter on the front of the barrel and at the rear of the collapsible buttstock.
The M4-177 is not a very powerful air rifle (remember, it is basically a Crosman 760 Pumpmaster in tactical clothing), but it generates more than enough muzzle energy for backyard plinking. Having a pnematic powerplant, there is no "recoil" - though the shooter will feel a very slight impulse from the movement of the striker weight - and the trigger is crisp. Accuracy, therefore, is quite decent, provided the shooter follows good practices.
It is NOT intended for hunting, or even for small pest control (shooting at, say, anything larger than a small bird, would be irresponsible).
Recommend to anyone. Great for plinking.
The gun supports many attachments, optics, mounts, and other add-ons. Don't use a for grip. Supports a sling, but the sling must be fed through some of the holes on the gun (no swivels). The firing rate is very minimal. I recommend that this gun is not to be used as a BB gun.

I assume pumping is loud too? I know my old 760 was as the handle hit the gun but I was able to dampen that with leather at the contact point. Should I expect similar here or have they improved the design, or?
Double checking with you, the barrel is rifled correct? It says rifled but it also says it's a 760 underneath which is not rifled...

Answer:This gun does not use CO2.
As far as how hard it is to pump, it gets more difficult as you put more pump it up more times, but you should have no problem getting enough pumps in for good shots.
