Great Rifle Great Price
November 8, 2017
I bought the Crosman Optimus .22 cal after reading many favorable reviews and bought it from Air Gun Depot after seeing many positive reviews. The rifle has a great look with the wood stock and all the parts were fit and finished very well. I mounted the scope that came with it after running around 100 pellets through it using iron sights. After mounting the scope and working with it and running around another 100 pellets through it the pellets were all over the target. I tightened the scope up and in just a short time I was putting all shots in the bulls eye, I was able to take the tops off of water bottles at 20 and 25 yard with the first try. I'm waiting on a scope upgrade and will use lock tight on the screws as suggested in a lot of post. After running around 250 pellets through it as suggested by the manufacture and making sure the scope isn't moving around it became a tack driver. Very pleased with this rifle and the service from Air Gun Depot, this won't be my last purchase. I would suggest this rifle and Air Gun Depot to family and friends.
ProsGreat wood stock Fiber optic front and rear sights Very accurate Hard hitting
ConsLong trigger put but can be easily fixed with a RC bearing and U tube. Scope isn't bad but for me anything beyond 25 yard I prefer more magnification.

Great gun, nice balance and very solid. Scope is not worth messing with, optic sights are fine.
ProsVery solid feel haven't put enough rounds through it to really site it in
ConsScope useless, but I didn't buy it for that. If you value that look at the Nitro venom dusk, Beware its a bit heavy but I enjoy mine

Nice Job Guys

This is not the first time I have needed a gun and bought a refurbished one from Airgun Depot. I have not gotten a bad one from you yet. I purchased this gun to replace my old Crosman Storm XT. The sights are typical Crosman. I will always hope one day the will stop building them from plastic. Once dialed in the gun had been consistently accurate. I shoot about 40 rounds per night every night. The Optimus seems to be holding up well. Nice job on the refurb.
ProsConsistent, Accurate, Very attractive stock, Has not failed me yet.
ConsCrosman sights work well for cheap plastic. In my fantasy life, I dream of a day when Crosman will build them using the same design and real materials.

July 30, 2016
The scope will not last long. Recoil will brake scopes. Must use the Iron Sights that come with it. Your range will be to about 30-35yrds with good vision.
ProsAccuracy is good. Power is good . Rifle works good. Rifle is light.
ConsRecoil is a scope killer.
crossman optimus .22 review
August 14, 2015
After months of use I have to say that the rifle has a good weight. It is a hard kiking rifle. Do to the hard kick i have gone thru 2 scopes. I just installed a Hawke HD 4x32
to it. I hope it holds on to the powerfull kick. The kick makes the rifle a challenge to be accurate. By accurate I mean to hit the bulls eye on targets at 75 feet away. I am hitting the bulls eye at that distance. The rifle is set within 1" kill zone. The max. range to shoot pray would be around 105 feet. Zero it at 25yrds. This rifle kills pigeons and chicken with authority. Rifle is well made. It is easy to dissasemble and clean. The trigger can be improved to be lighter in the pull. There is a fix on you tube. Adding a heavy muzzle to it would help accuracy and muzzle lift when you fire. Archer Airgun sells one for 15mm barrel diam. I recommend this rifle to anyone.
ProsPrice. Good construction. Knock down power. Easy to dissasemble.
ConsYou have to work on accuracy because of the hard kick. Needs a better scope to handle kick. Trigger a little on the hard side. Shoots 800fps. or less with lead pellets. Max. range is around 105 ft. At this distance pellet has dropped around 3/4". The rifle is not a long range shooter.

Awesome Gun!
March 12, 2015
I bought this on a whim as it was only $89.95 and I was intrigued by the 1200 fps/alloy and 1000 fps/lead pellets! Figured if it didn't live up to claims, I would return it!

WOW! Did this gun live up to claims! It averages 1225 fps with alloy and 1015 fps with 7.0 gr lead pellets and is dead nuts accurate! It is also fairly quiet, and very mild firing behavior! The recoil is just a gentle nudge straight back with no twisting or bucking!

This is by far the BEST .177 I have ever fired, and I have tested dozens! This is a real winner! Buy it!
ProsAccurate, fairly light weight, mild recoil and blazing fast! What more could you want?
ConsThe included scope is only fair, but I just put a better variable on it right out of the box! You should too! For the price, I did not expect the scope to be excellent! And it is not!

The item looks and functions as new! I am pretty surprised that it is as accurate with stock equipment as it was! Excellent first air rifle. Shipping was super fast too!!!
ProsGreat function and scope is very stable. Only took 3 shots to sight in at 20 yards and so far it's still dead on after 100 shots! Great value for the price!

Great gun for the money
December 17, 2014
I recently purchased the Refurbished Crosman Optimus .177 Cal. and found it to be an excellent gun for the money.
The gun shipped quickly and actually looked like a brand new gun when I took it out of the box, if it wasn't for the refurbished sticker
on the stock I would have thought it was new. The gun breaks fairly easy and has has plenty of punch. Trigger was a bit disappointing
but after watching 2 you tube videos and purchasing a 5x8x2.5 millimeter bearing for 3.00 I had the trigger working great in about 20 minutes.
It took about 20 rounds to get the sight zeroed in at about 40 yards.
ProsGreat price, plenty of power
ConsTrigger pull initially is about 1inch 1 1/2 inch However with the trigger fix it now has a 1/4 inch pull
By Shawn

Powerful enough.
October 11, 2014
Kills rabbits and squirrels. Bought this to eliminate pests. Out of the box, mounted and zeroed the scope. Fired 10.5 gr pellets to keep the speed under supersonic. In 1 hour I killed 4 fox squirrels and 1 rabbit. The rabbit was 20 feet, 1 shot kill. One squirrel was 90 feet, 1 shot kill. 1 other squirrel was a 30 foot 1 shot kill. Two squirrels at about 40-50 feet took multiple hits to kill. It seems to have a break in period and gets more accurate as you shoot around 50 shots. Very happy with the power and accuracy.
ProsKills rabbits and squirrels no problem.
ConsHeavy and large.

good & bad
October 5, 2014
I've had mine over a year now. Out of the box accuracy and the trigger pull were worse than terrible.
I thought it could be a scope issue so I thought I'd go with the iron sights. Wrong! The rear sight was missing pieces making it non-usable.
Contacted Crosman and they said "you probably broke rear sight yourself" so I was on my own . They eventually sent replacement parts after I had to bad mouth them on their own forum.
It's very reliable though, shoots every time. The velocity is pretty slow however ( I have the detuned Canadian version) It wont penetrate a soup can at 10 yards.
I'm thinking of upgrading the spring/piston to the non detuned version as I'm thinking the slower velocity may be partly to blame for the terrible accuracy ( at 10 yards you can't get a 5 shot group that you can cover with BOTH hands)
No way I would wish this on my worst enemy.
Stay far away (at least from the slow,inaccurate Canadian version)
Truly hope this helps someone
ProsLove the appearance and real wood stock
ConsNot accurate, stock scope is terrible, sold with missing sight parts and trigger could not be made worse on purpose. note: didn't purchase from airgundepot! wish I had, I hear their customer service is 1st rate and I needed customer service!

Scoped Crosman Optimus .177 - Great Accuracy & Performance
September 14, 2014
I have had my Crosman Optimus for two years now and have fired in excess of 2500 rounds. I did have a mishap and broke the spring, but we won't go into that now. I replaced the spring which was about 25% stronger and proceeded to work on other areas of the rifle, namely;-
1. The Trigger - I stripped, removed and inserted a miniature roller bearing in the mechanism so that there was no sliding of metal on metal when engaging the trigger. I then de-burred and polished up both sheer points on the trigger sheer. Upon assembly, I used clear silicon grease.
2. The Spring and Piston Assembly - Once I got to the exact "cut to length" position for the spring, I fashioned a "seat" for the spring out of very tough teflon to protect the rear seat of the spring. I then washed the spring assembly with a mild thinners and polished up the inner piston tube to a shine. When all was done, I applied the clear silicon grease sparingly to the piston tube as well as the piston and seal. For the actual spring itself, I applied thick waterproof grease to help reduce the noise emanating from the spring. Then I assembled everything and SUCCESS! Have never looked back since!
PLEASE NOTE, you will have to fashion a spring press of sorts to compress the assembly.
ProsVery accurate and very hard hitting, BUT you must find a pellet that works for your rifle. Beware though, your lighter pellets WILL tumble, so I use the H&N Crow Magnum's at 9.26 grains with which I can achieve a grouping of 10 mm with five rounds at a distance of 20 meters. In fact, the bull in my targets are only 10 mm in diameter which I hit with regularity.
ConsBe sure to keep the stock screws tight because they are prone to work loose, or apply "stuff" so that they stay fastened.

Excellent well-made pellet rifle
April 20, 2014
I bought the Crosman Optimus .177 caliber pellet rifle about a year ago. My decision was based on a the fact that it was a very powerful and well made rifle with a weight around 6.5 pounds. The stock is standard finished hard wood. It has a rifled steel barrel with adjustable sights. It has the ability to push a lead pellet 1,000 fps +. After cleaning the barrel I shot several hundred rounds to break the rifle in. Most spring type air rifles have long, rough and crude factory triggers. After watching a short video clip on trigger replacement, I removed my trigger and easily replaced it with the GRT trigger. The GRT trigger made a huge difference in precision shooting ability and enhanced the accuracy as well. I mounted a BSA 4X air rifle scope on it. The rifle has exceptional power for the price and it shoots cleanly through wood trim boards in my garage. I have read some of the comments about noise levels but I don't think it is loud. I have owned numerous BB and pellet rifles over a 40 year period. The Crosman Optimus is at the top of the list for value for price and general quality. I have attached a small orange colored stick-on target that I used to sight in the rifle. This shows the accuracy of the pellet rifle.
ProsNice wood stock with solid steel construction. For the price, the rifle offers quality, practical accuracy, and power. It becomes very capable with the GRT trigger and a nice quality air rifle scope. For the size it has a nice 6.5 pound weight. That adds to its practical use in the field as a general air rifle or a small game air rifle.

I've had mine for over 2 years now and am as happy today as the day I bought it. The gun is well made and powerful, but maybe a little loud. The scope works well out of the box to about 40 yards and it took no time to adjust it to 75 yards. I live in the woods so I use it for target shooting as well as pesky varmints my dogs can't reach. Last week I got a Wood Pecker, at 7:00 AM, on my roof, from 50 yards. My Sons have had equal success with Raccoon's, Rabbits and Wood Peckers. Target shooting is a blast with this gun and was a great diversion for my wife while she was wheel chair bound with a broken leg two summers ago.
ProsWell made, good balance, nice wood stock. Accurate when you buy high quality pellets for it.
ConsA little loud & a bit jumpy. Expected tho for 1200 fps.

Very good beginner gun
March 22, 2014
It's a very good spring beginner gun, I like the simple design. It has a nice feel, a nice finish, very good looking. It's very powerful. However, there's no way to put a sling on it without drilling into the body. It gets very heavy carrying it. It has a nice hair trigger and safety switch as well.
ProsPrice Power Scope Finish Feel Hair trigger Safety system Easy to clean, oil, and maintain Good beginner gun
ConsWeight Lack of ability to put a sling on Spring

I have the optimus in both .177 and .22. I did a lot of reading after I got the .177 and learned about the spring piston air rifle and with that knowledge I find that the optimus is a great gun with a little discipline and use of the artillery hold. I liked it enough to get the .22 and it is great as well. the only thing I have to say "bad" about them is the trigger. but look online and there are easy fixes and there is the grt-lll.

what a killer
May 3, 2013
I live in Puerto Rico and we are very restricted on fire arms, so a pellet gun is our only option. We have been invaded by Iguanas that grow up to ten pounds and are very destructive. I have a 3 acre garden that was being destroyed as they like new young plants. After getting my Crosman Optimus, my problem was being solved. When you hit them in the head, end of story. Body shots are also effective as the 22 cal pellet penetrates the skin easy. This pellet gun has no problem killing these big lizards. Thanks for such a good product.
ProsGreat price and well made
ConsHave not found any cons yet. Shipping was a bit high

Bird's worst nightmare!!!
March 19, 2013
I got this gun last spring and since then, I have shot around 150 of the most annoying birds. This gun has great accuracy but I would definitely recommend a better scope. I used a 3-9 by 32 scope last summer, but I bought a Centerpoint 4-16 by 40 scope and with this scope I should be able to shoot birds at 75 yards or more. I have used the new scope as the rings that came with it were to big so I have to buy some. This gun is very powerful and could take down rabbits, squirrels, chipmunks, and probably groundhogs.
ProsAccuracy Light weight Easy to cock
Consnot anything

Nicely made but not accurate
October 7, 2012
The rifle appears to be well made. The scope is pretty darn good considering it is part a $100 package deal. The iron sights are plastic but they seem to work well. Striking power is also very good. HOWEVER, accuracy is terrible using Crosman SSP pellets (6 groups at 40'). Maybe there is a break in period? I will try some higher quality pellets to see if that helps.
ProsSeemingly well made. Scope is pretty nice considering overall package cost. Striking power is very good.
ConsAccuracy with Crosman SSP pellets is terrible. Rifle is somewhat noisy; not a good choice for stealthy home use.
By Jack
Great gun
September 27, 2012
I got this gun and I have probably shot 300 plus rounds with it. It's accurate and powerful. The scope that comes with it is really good. I hit a target with a grouping of three quarters of an inch at 60 yards. First squirrel I got was a head shot from 20 yards. My scope and iron sights were zeroed in from the box, which was really nice. The gun is sturdy and the scope stays zeroed in very well. This gun is great for beginners and skilled shooters. The trigger is an easy pull and the cocking force is fine. This is an excellent gun!!!!!
ProsAccurate Powerful Sturdy construction Great price

I bought this rifle after viewing many others, i do have 3 other rifles ranging from gamo to remington nitro piston. this gun is by far from what i have had experience with is so far the best and most accurate. it never misses, i have fired approx 1000 pellets through it using the provided scope and 'bang' every animal dead. scope still zero and no movements. it is medium loud but that is ok in the forests and woods as noone else is there, just me, my camo and this rifle.

get one, get one now and do not miss out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

High Quality for a Low Price
January 5, 2012
This gun was stunning out of the box. I have never owned a high end break barrel(not yet at least) but I can't imagine them looking that much better than this. There is some uneven coloring of the wood on the inside of the wood near the break area but you would have to go over it with a fine tooth comb to see it. All screws were tight and the gun was well packed. The scope included(I bought the combo) was nice for a factory included scope. The noise was a little much for my apartment but this is my first magnum springer so it is hard to compare. It is about the same as my Stoeger X20 that I also received for Christmas. Very happy with the gun.

My wife had issues with cocking it but once broken in I hope it will ease up a bit. Dieseling present even after 30 or so shots, clean the darn barrel before shipping and that goes for all manufacturers. Put a ring around the front fiber optic to protect it. Pellets, including crosman's own, need to be tapped into the breach otherwise the skirt gets cut off when closing. Some checkering would be nice but for the price the wood is beautiful without it. It would be nice if manufacturers who also make pellets(I don't expect them to recommend other brands) would test fire their pellets and give some basic recommendations on which one gave the best groups. This would save us a lot of time and money testing all kinds of pellets.

Right out the box first shot was a dead center bullseye, one of the best I have ever shot, distance was 30ft and the pellet was one of the 10+grain Gamo round tipped. If you are looking for an entry level .177 break barrel look no further. My brother in law has a crosman phantom and his gun looks like a toy compared to the Optimus. The weight of this gun makes it feel like a firearm and commands respect. Buy it you will love it.
