I have owned several brands and style airguns in my life, I have to say this is by far the best I have ever owned, accurate
I have had this pellet rifle for some 7 years now and never had any problem, shoots the aluminum pellets and breaks the sound barrier every shot. Just like a .22 cal. rifle. This rifle will shoot a bulls eye out in about 7 shoots no more red to see. Time and time again with any brand pellet as long as you adjust the sites for each brand of ammo your using. I love the sites and ease of adjustment. You will not be disappointed to say the least.
ProsFor the $$$ you wont find another rifle better for hunting or target shooting. I am 60 years old and I do know a thing or two about air rifles.
ConsI should have bought two or three for my wife and daughter.

Very good gun buy it
I got this gun in four days when we ordered it. This a really gun for beginners and older youth. I only had it for five days and I have shot two squirrels one ground squirrel one rabbit two magpies that's pretty good. I use the crosman premier pellets. It's good up to 35 yards with open sites I haven't put a scope on it yet. This is my favorite pellet gun now.
ProsGet this gun for the price. Amazingly powerful.
ConsNot so accurate but I have only had it for five days

stay away!
Horrible trigger, 6-8 lb. pull, crude and unpredictable.. Crunch, crunch gravel sound every time you cock it, very rough. Lots of spring twang, torque. Did I mention the terrible trigger? Save your money and buy a German springer, you'll never look at another Crosman piece of junk.

Cheap and Good Quality
When I first held the rifle in my hand I felt it's unbalanced due to its empty stock but It's a easy fix, I put a tin of pellets in and .......Wow........What a difference!!
anyone who has this rifle should do the same, trust me you will love it even more!
ProsCheap, Accurate

Can't Touch This!
I give this 5 stars because of the bang for the buck! I paid twice as much for a Gamo bull barrel and this Crosman kicks it's butt. Both for velocity and accuracy. I dropped a 3-9X40 (cheap ass one) scope on it and a crow doesn't stand a chance at 50 yards. I consistently put 5 rounds into a penny at 25 yards. It has that weird 'twang' sound from the spring but it doesn't need all of the bulk of the bull barrel to stay on target like the Gamo and it's much lighter. The only down side I can find is that you have to hold the barrel down to load a pellet (if your pre-loading without fully cocking) because it doesn't weigh enough to stay open on it's own. Makes it kind of cumbersome, but not a deal breaker. This is easily the best gun for the price for anyone wanting to break into the springer air rifle game.
ProsPrice, accuracy, velocity, weight. Put a decent scope on it and you're golden.
ConsBuilt-in sights are worthless.

pretty good
due to Canadian laws, I have the 495 fps version, but I must say, it shoots well, especially for a 495 fps. The only problem I have with it is the sights, other than that I love it. Killed many starling, squirrels and a few rabbits with it.
Proskills well, nice trigger
Consthe sights

My First Springer
I thought this gun was a piece of crap until I found the right pellets for it. I used Crosman and Gamo pellets and had a variation of about 5 inches at 10-20 yards. I switched to Beeman 1230 hollow points and saw an immediate difference in accuracy. Contrary to some reviews I've seen, the stock scope seems to be ok, I have only zeroed it once after switching ammo. I've fired at least a thousand pellets through it and have seen no noticeable drop in power. This is my first springer gun so I don't have a lot of experience, but overall this seems like a decent gun.

Awesome Rifle!
Just getting into the hobby of shooting air rifles, so this was my first buy. Great price, and even better quality! Feels very nice to hold and is very accurate. Was impressed with the power when i shot a beer bottle from ~ 30 yards and it shattered to pieces. Sights are really cool too.
ProsAccuracy, power, overall quality, price, sights.
ConsI don't have a second one!

its a great gun, and the price is even better. Its pretty easy to pull the barrel down and hits hard. The sight are pretty nice and has an over all solid feel. I even to my first bird with it one hour after opening. clean kill bird didn't move a muscle.
Prosgood feel. easy to pull down barell. pretty accurate.
Conskind of cheap sights. pretty loud. pellet somtimes fall out of O ring because the barell opens if you bump the barell after it's cocked.

Great all around rifle
I have had a great experience with this rifle. All of my kills are consisted of 3 squirrels, one at 30 yards which dropped like a rock from a shot resting on my dad's shoulder. Also, I have shot at many starlings and blue jays off hand at 40 plus yards, never hitting them but either the pellet going through its feathers without injuring the bird or hitting the tree right behind it. After much trial and error, I have found that the best pellets are gamo red fire and blue flame pellets. I like the blue flame better because it makes 1000 fps go to 1300 fps and 17 fpe to 20 fpe.
ProsFast, hard hitting, great for anything up to wild boar out to 15 yards with a well placed shot, great for fun long range shooting. I would take this out for med. sized game in a heartbeat(woodchuck, raccoon, coyote, etc.)
ConsTook a VERY long time to get the scope to stay zeroed. I tried different scope mounts and scopes, lots of pellet changes, and then, one day, it just stuck and now its great.

Best Value .177 Out There
I consider the Phantom 1000 the best 0.177 rifle on the market for the money. It easily puts Crossman 7.4g pointed pellets through 1/2" pine boards at 10 yards. I use it without a scope and I like the fiber optic sights. The gun comes up nice and feels nice. I also like the stock material. I have had the gun for almost 4 years and it has been problem free. When first fired, it is loud, but it quiets down after 20-50 shots. I use one sight setting for three pellet types. At 20-30 yards, I sighted Crosman Destroyer's 7.9g to be right on.

I did a simple experiment using a 1000 FPS Crossman Phantom 1000. I filled three dog food cans, same brand, with water and placed them on a boulder. I then paced-off about 10 yards and fired a single pellet into each can. One was a Crossman Pointed 7.4g, the next was a Crossman Destroyer 7.9g and the last was the Beeman Kodiak Heavy 10.65g.

The exit holes on each were:
Pointed 7.4g 7/16x5/16 in
Destroyer 7.9g 7/16x6/16 in
Beeman 10.65g 9/16x8/16 in

The Beeman made the biggest exit hole. I use these three pellet, mainly for range. Pointed for 50 yard shots, destroyer for 20-30 yard shots and Beeman for under 20 yard shots. I was thinking that the Destroyer may make the biggest exit hole, but it didn't. The Beeman Kodiak Heavy won there. I have not tried the Crosman Premier Brown Box 10.5g yet. In short, this gun is so powerful, the heavier the pellet, the better.

Then I decided to really see how the Phantom 1000 worked with five different pellet types. The setup was a standard 25 ft air pistol paper target placed onto a Champion .22 rimfire LR rated bullet trap at a distance measured at 20 yards. The firing position was seated in a chair, using a normal forearm hold (fingers on the stock screws) resting my elbow on my knee taking 6-10 shot groups. I had been using the Crosman 7.9g Destroyer anyway, so I started with that and sighted-in the Phantom. Here are the results using the Crosman Destroyer sight settings (i.e. not resighting for the different pellets):

- Crosman Destroyer 7.9g: 5 of 6 shots in the black, 3 dead center, One outlier and the rest in a tight 1 inch group.
- Crsoman Pointed 7.4g: 2 of 6 in the black, the rest scattered around in a 4" group.
- Beeman Kodiak Heavy 10.2g: A 1.5 inch 10 shot group located 2.5 inches at 10 o'clock.
- RWS Superdome 8.3g: A 6 shot group 1" left of center 1.3 inches in diameter.
- RWS Meisterkuglen 8.2g: A 10 shot group 2.5 inches from the center 1.5 inches wide.

My conclusions: The Phantom 1000 really likes the Crosman 7.9g Destroyers - tight groups and very accurate. If you were to pick one pellet to use, use this one.
The Crosman Pointed 7.4 g had a wide spread - not that accurate in the Phantom.
The Beeman Kodiak had a wider grouping that the Destroyers, but most of the shots would have need in the black if I had resighted the gun for these pellets.
The RWS Superdomes would have hit 4 of 6 into the black if I had decided to resight the gun for these pellet.
Most of the RWS Meisterkuglen 8.2g pellets would have been in the black if I had decided to resight the gun with these pellets.

In summary - you can't go wrong with the Crosman Destroyers with the Phantom - very, very accurate and tight groups, however, if one decides to use other pellets like the Beeman Kodiak Heavies, one just needs to resight the gun for these pellets and the groups will be a little wider.
Note: The 7g-8g pellets made a metal splat sound when hitting the Champion bullet trap. The 10.2g Bemans actually hit so hard that they started to make the trap's metal ring like a bell.

I bought the Phantom to handle gray squirrels that were chewing on my house. No problems with the other red squirrels or chipmunks. From last October through this April, I had 31 kills and 4 wounded using mostly Crosman 7.9g Destroyers at 20 - 25 yards using the fiber optic sights.

In summary - this 0.177 break barrel rifle is a best buy for the price, power and accuracy.
ProsVery accurate with Crosman Destroyers, hard hitting, easy to cock.
ConsRecoil is a little heavy, but not bad.

I Ordered This Gun Yesterday
(Thursday, Jun 16; 2011)
And I Am Waiting With High Hopes For This Gun (Based On All The Excellent Reviews!)

I Bought A 3-9x40 Scope To Put On It, Because According To Everyone The Sights Are Crappy And Un-Zero Every Few Shots, And So I Can't Wait To Start Sniping Things!

I also bought a variety of pellets to test in the rifle, and will respond back with the best of them.

* RWS Super-H-Point (500ct.)
* Crosman Pointed Pellets (250ct.)
* Crosman Destroyer (250ct.)
* GAMO Raptors (100ct.)
* GAMO Red Fire Polymer Tip (150ct.)
* GAMO .177 Match Pellets (500ct.)

I have 10 air rifles and this is the only one which maintains 1000 FPS and over on my chrony and thats with a standard 7.3gr pellet this is after a 1000 shot breakin, it chronied 1350 on the first shot and I had to shoot the crossman heavys 10.5 gr pellets for a while to break it in everything else broke the sound barrier resulting in poor accuracy but she is dead on now, Very well built but ya still need to float her on the hold, Artillery hold, for accuracy.It will put a pellet through and clean out on a 1 gallon milk container full of watter with the cap on at 75 feet every time 16-ft-lb and thats more power than my .22 springer This is crosmans best springer in my opinion, but facts are facts

air rifle
this rifle has satisfying power and superb accuracy. I mounted a center point 4x32 scope and that works great. a neighbor asked me to shoot some skunks for him and I am going to do that this week. takes down starlings and blackbirds easily. it has a fast reload and a padded stock. make sure your gentle when your cocking it because break barrels tend to bend. I am very satisfied with rifle.

Crosman P1000X
Let me start off my review by telling you that I achieve ~1 MOA with this gun. That's more accurate than a lot of military- grade sniper rifles around today. And its a .177 caliber pellet gun. Mind you, I got this consistency from iron sights. The point of aim comes very naturally- the first time I picked up this rifle the front green post lined up perfectly with the rear leaf sight. Its specially designed buttstock helps aid this natural point of aim. I've been around guns for about five years now, and I'm obtaining this excellent consistency. Oh, and I almost forgot to add- the .177 cal pellet flies downrange at 1000 FPS. All of this for around a hundred bucks. This is by far the best pellet gun I have ever owned. Don't fall for the $200 "specialty" guns. This suffices and is around the same quality. As for the ruggedness, I forgot to mention- I dropped it in a creek once and right afterward it was functioning perfectly.

However, i bought this about 2 years ago...if memory serves. Its a BEAST. Really i used to kill coyotes. It was a couple shots but yeah. Im worried that over these 2 years the power has decreased. it took about 6 shots to kill a skunk yesterday. BUY

Awesome Rifle
I recently purchased the Phantom 1000 and decided to mount a really nice scope...I went with a varible power CenterPoint...model 4x16-40mm....
I sighted it in at (50) yds and after about twelve or fifteen shots, I was consistently hitting half inch bulls.
The rifle is everything they say and then some...clean, neat and very powerful!...The pellets were penetrating half inch particle board at (50) yds!...very impressive.
This is my first "break barrel" rifle and it's hard to believe you can get this much performance for the dollars.
I would highly recommend this rifle to anyone, regardless of skill level or knowledge of the hobby/sport.

I like the phantom
I haven't had an air rifle since I was a teenager, so when I decided I wanted one enough to shell out 100 bucks for one I did my homework. 98% of the reviews I read on the phantom were good, so I got one, and boy, those reviews were right.
The gun is solid, everything is nicely fitting, and it feels like a real gun weight wise. It cocks fairly easy considering the FPS, I used to over pump my powerline 880 until I couldn't pump it anymore(I don't suggest this as it WILL break your gun and is DANGEROUS)and the phantom gets better penetration with less pumping effort.
Yes the rear sights should be made of metal, they ARE cheap and you have to adjust them often, but I don't count that against the gun because the phantom is definately a piece you want a good scope on. Mine came with a nice 4x32 scope, actually better than you expect from a throw in scope, which are usually cheap.
It's loud at first, but that calms down. If you like loud though don't worry, every time you oil it the first few shots will be pretty loud.
Overall I give it a 10 out of 10. It's powerful, accurate, and well built. Best of all at around 100 bucks it's definately worth the money.
Just don't forget to put a decent scope on it, or at least pick up a better rear sight.

Buy this gun....straight up. Awesome accuracy, just amazing. If you miss with this gun, its your fault. This thing drops birds and rabbits, WHEN you hit the,will...drop! Great weight, very very sturdy feel. It feels more solid then the Gamo Viper ,which costs almost 3 times as much.
Again Buy This GUN!!! Awesome power, accuracy, and durability.
Side will be hard to cock for the first 10 shots. I mean really really hard. Like I was worried about it at first. But it will wear in don't worry!!! Just cock it over and over again, just to wear in the spring catch and you'll be fine.

Phantom 1000 air rifle
Gun sounded like a 30-30 rifle the first 4-5 shots but quieted down a lot. The rifle is awesome for shooting blackbirds,squirrels and other varmits. With a good scope it is a very true shooting rifle with the rifling in the barrel. The phantom is a lot quicker to load than my old gun. The only bad thing about the phantom 1000 was the sights, It was a waste of time putting sights on this rifle, they are totally useless, you get them set and first shot and they are off, get a scope for a .22 rifle not a BB gun.

Great Value
I bought this gun online here at I wasnt sure what to expect since this is my first break barrel air rifle. I can say with confidence that this gun is great. The steel rifled barrel is CONSISTANTLY accurate. At 20 yards on a rifle rest I can put up .25 inch shot groups easily and thats using open sights.

I ordered a good rifle scope that I am waiting on to put on this bad boy. Same brand I use on my hunting rifles. I expect good things.

Noisy first 8-10 shots...but quited down considerably after that.

Great Gun...youcant go wrong. No need to spend Hundreds more on another brand...this is a solid rifle.

Best Air Rifle Ive Used
I tried a GAMO and was very dissapointed in the inconsistant shot grps...I took it back, got this gun and it is what I paid for.

First 8-10 shots are loud but then it muffels down a good bit. Very accurate...I looked inside the barrel and it is rifled!!! I dont know if that is standard in air guns but I like that alot.

Slap a GOOD scope on it and you will be ready to go. Great gun, great value....Im not dissapointed at all.

Phantom 1000
Great pellet rifle. I didn't buy the scope. The iron sites needed to be sited-in. It was hitting a few inches up and to the left at 30-40 feet. Great power. I was using Crosman pointed pellets. It put them through the target, through a 3/8" board and out the other side, into an aluminium sheeted bird feeder post into a 4x4. The first 10 shots were fairly loud, like a 22 short. After that, is was less. All in all - a great buy.
