Crosman Recruit good gun
October 15, 2013
I bought the Recruit because it has better FPS than comparable guns and the 5 pellet clip. I shoot pellets only, they are heavier than BB's and therefore hit harder. The clip works great and is faster than loading a pellet in the gun one at a time. And the pellets go in straight not cocked. Easy to pump, I shoot at 5 pumps most of the time and it has good power. I shoot tin cans and use Crosman 10.5 grain pellets, they hit harder than the more common 7.7 grain pellets.

Spend more money!
December 21, 2012
Bought this for my son for Christmas, but after trying it I wish I had spent more money. It is OK for the price, but the trigger makes it almost impossible to shoot accurately.
Adjustable stock

A bit disappointing, better to go with a higher level Crosman
October 10, 2012
Not very powerful or accurate. I would go with a more expensive higher quality model from Crosman next time.
Not much
Not accurate or powerful. Doesn't load well, must tip gun upside down at an angle while holding the loading lever fully back, awkward.

How can these guns be so inexpensive??
December 29, 2010
You've got to be kidding me? I bought two guns for my kids at Christmas. They're great!!! I mean come on?!? These guns are dirt cheap and they perform like my break-barrel rifle. The scope took a little work but other than that I'm fully satisfied. I bought the indoor target trap and I highly suggest you buy the pair. Lots of indoor shootin' fun!!!!! I would definitely recommend this gun for beginners or anyone else looking for some plinking fun!

Great Gun!!!!!!!!
October 11, 2010
I love it the adjustable stock helps you grow with it the gun. The scope is good for moderate range hunting and target shooting. I loved it so much i bought my son one and we shoot targets and small animals.

Recruit Rating
September 3, 2010
First BB/Pellet Gun. Out of the box the first pellet got jammed, but once unjammed, the gun shot great. At 35 Yards, hit 6 inch target every time after 1 shot for dial in. Accurate, fun, and easy to work with for a novice like myself. Plus for 49.99 from a large competitor store that doesn't list it on their website, you can't beat the price. I'd recommend it to anyone just looking for fun and decent power. If you're looking to kill things bigger than a squirrel, it might not be the right pellet gun for you. But then again, if you want to hunt game, get a real gun. This thing is a lot of fun and great value out of the box. Get one.

Best Multi Pump
July 13, 2010
I have had this gun for almost a year and it is the best multi pump pellet gun ever. The scope is great and i have killed birds rats and squirrels. I recommend it to anyone. It is good for small pest control. it shoots very accurate and extremely strong. 1 pump will make someone bleed. If you are looking for a great gun this is the one for you.

Excellent first rifle
June 23, 2010
I have had this rifle for about a month now and it just seems to get more accurate the more you shoot it. I have got atleast 1000 rounds through it, (both bb's & pellets) the first 200 I shot without the scope. very accurate, after mounting and alot of dialing in the scope, just gets better and better...Great rifle for the money...

Lightweight and pretty accurate after some heavy scope adjustments. Good enough for small pest control.

After ten pumps can you shoot accurately with both bbs and pellets at 50 yards? And if you can what is the greatest distance?
