By Donald USASeptember 30, 2023 Verified Purchase

Quickly became my go-to. Out of 13 variously powered and differing price point air rifles, this is the one I grab. It's simple and deadly.

Beautiful wood stock, nicely finished. Hard hitting and accurate right out of the box. The NP has a much tamer recoil than my traditional spring powered air rifles. It's less hold sensitive than my springers therefore less frustrating to consistently hit bullseyes from different positions (ie. Squirrel hunting) Great value at about $100

Sights are plastic

By GaryUSASeptember 18, 2023

Great rifle well built for the price. Bought it for my grandson but he has a little trouble breaking the barrel to cock it. After a day's shooting at 9 yrs he had it down . A little kick for a pellet gun got it scoped in nice tight groups. I love this Lil rifle sorry grandson !

Built good , shoots like a Cadillac, I've had my fair share of cheep scopes in a bundle this is by far the best . All round solid an fun to shoot !

None after 200 rounds .

By Rick Durocher August 4, 2023

A great gun and fun to shoot and pest control it will take down most small game

Well made air rifle and great for pest control around the yard

It is a little hard to cock And this gun is not for children

By GaryUSADecember 18, 2022

Are you kidding me? For around 100 bucks this rifle is outrageous! So accurate with the right ammo its boring. Mine loves Barracuda Hunter Extreme. Included scope is ok but I replaced with Winchester 4X. Trigger is ok, but is adjustable and I reduced second stage just a bit. Stock is nice wood and really amazing for the price. Yes it is heavy but that can help accuracy . Yes, it is hard to cock, but I believe it will improve with usage. I absolutely love this air rifle, and repeat, for the price it is outrageous!

Wood stock, build, scope rail, accuracy, adjustable trigger, low noise.

A bit heavy and somewhat hard to cock.

By JohnUSAMarch 25, 2022

Great pellet gun. My son and I have been hitting quarters, nickels, and pennys, we didn't know what the distance was so we measured it with two tape measures. Our target was 46 feet away, with the coins were taped to it with scotch tape. This was with no scope, just the easlily adjustable sites. Next, I plan on getting a scope, my son wants to go turkey hunting with it. Also it's pretty powerful, we shot some empty metal gas cans, it usually went in the front side and out through the back too. (these are one gallon chainsaw gas cans from Lowe's)

Save money on the rifle and get a scope, have never used the scopes that come with the combo so I can't tell you if it is good or not. UTG is just the brand I've found to give the best price/performance ratio. After broken in, scoped and fed well(I suggest Stoeger max penetration or max shock, just what I've found that it loves to eat) I'm hitting dime sized targets every single time. UTG 4x32 Wide angle at 35 yards after 5 shots you won't even know if you're on because it's hitting the same hole. Note: 1 grain difference in pellet weight will need to be adjusted for trajectory so practice with what you intend to compete or hunt with. These things are out of stock often so if there are 2 in stock and can afford an extra Benjamin, buy two. Get one for your buddy or relative and have them pay you back, after they shoot it they will appreciate it.

I research things before I buy them. The Vantage had so many good reviews and the price point was so low I had to get one. The hype was completely accurate like the rifle. There is absolutely no other rifle that compares to the price/performance ratio. So I'm just now getting around to this. I got mine for $99 and the now $109 price is still ridiculously low. Advice: Spend a little of that saved money on a good scope. But, first, get it out and put 150 rounds through it before touching the sights or mounting a scope, it needs broken in. You could fire it right into the ground, just feed it first. Mine is the .22 and I've put six different pellets through it. Crosman hollows are the most versatile of all pellets and shoot fine but mine likes a little heavier load. It absolutely loves the stoeger greater penetration 15.74gr. The heavier Max shocks are excellent as well, if you can find someone that sells them. UTG 4x32 wide is a marriage for life. You will need to use your set pin.


By Bill October 29, 2021

never waste your money on one of these

The worst gun I ever owned and I own several air rifles. This gun refuses to shoot straight. No matter what pellet I use the best I can get is about a 6 inch group at 30 yards. I gave this gun away and would never buy another crosman if any kind. The only reason I gave it one star is because there is no option for a zero

Remove the stock for firewood and sell the rest to the salvage yard for scrapmetal.

By Carry T. HarrisJuly 25, 2021

An excellent product for the money

Very accurate right out of the box ,very powerful, Awesome sights

Just a little heavy but not as heavy as some break Barrel air Rifles that I have owned in the past

By terranceUSAFebruary 4, 2021

I can't get around well so have a 20ft range in my living room(i know). My first 5 shots were covered by a dime but no where near where i was aiming. Some twisty on the sight screws got that back where it should be. I am not sure if this is really a wooden stock, if so it has a really strange finish. For the price this is a great rifle for plinking, and those (expletive deleted) rats around here. It is much louder than my springer, but the shorter barrel and lack of any noise abatement counts for that. It weighs a lot less than my springer and makes me wish I could wander the woods again. I think this will be my "go to" rifle as soon as I get a bit used to it.

nicely balanced, trigger is better than most at this price point, holds a nice group

barrel is a bit short making it harder to cock, sights are too small and look cheap, stock butt is a strange angle making it difficult to obtain sight picture

By B-RyeOctober 13, 2018

Yep, it works really well

Is the rear sight removable

asked Rylan from USA

Yes, with a Phillips screwdriver

Donald from USA

Envia para o brasil?

asked CRISTIANE from Brazil

Could this gun take a raccoon ?

asked John from USA

A head-shot should be able to drop a raccoon, but personally, I would want something with a bit more power. Medium sized rabbits are probably the practical limit for this rifle.

Brent from USA

Are the stock sights plastic or metal ?

asked Karl from USA


Mark from USA

Can you mount a scope?

asked Josh

Yes, it's grooved for 11mm dovetail mounts

Donald from USA


Liam from USA

How difficult is it cock?

asked John

It requires a fair bit of force, but anyone 16 or older that is moderately fit (capable of doing a push-up or two) should not have any problem.

Brent from USA


asked JOHN

How do you load the 22cal. Pellets and how do you charge it so it's ready to shoot?

asked Harriet

You simply fold the barrel forward to cock it, then place a single pellet in the rear end of the barrel.

Kristen from USA

I want to mount my own scope of choice, will I be able to get the parts to do so?

asked Andy

Yes. Any rings that have a dovetail mount should fit this rifle. Just make sure that the rings are the same size as the tube of the scope you want.

Brent from USA

Am I able to attach a scope to this?

asked Matt A.

Yes. The rifle has dovetails to allow mounting a scope.

Hi What other stocks from crosman air rifles or any other brand or custom are compatible with the Vantage NP .22 ?

asked D. Rodriguez

What relatively inexpensive scope would you recommend for this rifle. I have a lot of experience, but none with an air gun. Thanks,hsb

asked Hoke from USA

I'm a big fan of Hawke scopes. They've preformed really well for me.

tim from USA

should i get this or the gamo hornet? im looking for reliable DURABLE air rifle that wont break easily and has good power......thanks in advance:)

asked oscar

One more thing I failed to mention: The Crosman Vantage is a heavy, durable gun. That extra weight over some other rifles may be a negative point for some but many like it as do I. The break barrel cocking is positive and strong. No wobble, no wiggle and when you return the barrel from loading position to alignment for firing, you are rewarded with a very positive sounding "click" and feel of a real gun and not a toy which by the way it certainly is not. This is a serious gun to be treated like any firearm. I've owned mine for a couple of months, put over 500 rounds through it and accuracy has not changed. It appears to be built like a tank. "Bullet proof" if I may add that term. I believe the rifle definitely fits the category for reliability and durability and will give me more than enough useful life.

Robert from USA

The two rifles are similar enough in power and price, however; I would purchase the Crosman Vantage Nitro. Of course my reasoning may differ from others but I prefer the Nitro Piston over a spring. Read the reviews for Nitro Piston type mechanisms and I believe you will be impressed as there are several advantages over a spring mechanism.

Robert from USA

These two rifles are similar, basically the same "model" from both manufacturer's. There is nothing bad about either, the major difference is the stocks. The Crosman Vantage is wood, the Gamo Hornet is plastic. I prefer wood over plastic in terms of durability and weight. You should choose the type you like better.

Edward from USA

The vantage is durable so far have shot about 200 pellets has plenty of power to hold 1/2 '' group indoors for target practice with the 3x9 scope it came packaged with and the crosman domed pellets . But if the reason you are looking for power is :pest control or hunting I would have to recommend a 0.22 cal gun . . I don't have any experience with the Gamo product but I would not go back to a spring gun after owning the nitro piston vantage and Benjamin limited .

Kurt from USA

will this rifle fit the utg leapers 4x32mm rifle scope w/MIL-dot reticle; 1" tube and 3/8" rings?

asked oscar

Since the Leapers scope you reference comes with dovetail rings I would think the scope would fit as the Crosman Vantage Nitro Piston Air rifle has the dovetail type mount on the barrel. My Vantage came a Centerpoint Scope mondel CP3932RG which Airgundepot sells under item 9-CP3932RG so you may want to have a look at that and compare dimensions to be certain. PS This is a VERY nice gun even if you paid more than the $ 89.95 price. Accurate and powerful.

Robert from USA

does this come with the scope?

asked oscar

I purchased the Vantage Nitro Piston Combo, which did come with a very nice Centerpoint 3-9x32mm Illuminated Reticle scope. I am very happy with the scope, it came with lens covers as well as mounting and a battery for the reticle.

Edward from USA

Yes, it comes with a refurbished Centerpoint 3-9x32 scope, wich is normally $60 by its self. The scope is very nice and has an illuminated reticle which illuminates either red or green depending on your shooting preference or situation.


How does the illuminated reticule work, is there a side knob? Can't see it in pictures. Is it a MIL DOT or standard plex?

asked Dan

There is a knob on the left side of the scope. It has multiple brightness settings in red and green. It is a mil-dot reticle.

Kevin from USA

The illuminated reticle is powered by a small 3volt battery (provided with scope). The battery is placed in one of the scope adjustment caps. There IS a standard plex/crosshair but you can make it glow green or red by adjusting the side knob for how much highlighting you prefer. It's kind of neat for a low cost scope, which by the way, is pretty decent, being 3 x 9 adjustable and such.

Hal Smith

It is a mil dot with a turn nob on the left of the scope. You turn it 0-5 in one direction for Red and 0-5 in the other direction for green. I have been well please with both the rifle and the scope even though most times I do not turn on the illumination.

David from USA

Does the 3-9 X 32 scope have an adjustable objective?

asked Scott

No and yes. They are not considered adjustable, but most all non-AO scopes are adjustable anyway. AO scopes are easily adjustable, non-AO just take more effort. The objective lens can move in and out by turning it similar to AO scopes, but you have to reach in and do it manually. The lens is attached to a thin ring that is threaded into the scope, that ring is held in place by a lock nut which is also the end of the scope. Simply unscrew to loosen or remove the end of the scope (usually the last half inch at the front) then you can move the lens forward or back just like an AO. Once you have it right for your range tighten the lock ring back and you're done. This is obviously more trouble than an AO, but it's better than not adjusting it all. I can give more detail and how best to adjust one for your needs if you want; chevota at hotmail


It does not have an adjustable objective but overall I have been pleased with the scope. I do also have the Nitro Trail and it does have a 40 mm adjustable objective that I like better but it is a much more expensive package. For the price of this package deal I would say it is a better than average scope.

David from USA

No it doesn't.

Robert from USA

Since this gun is also a nitro piston, does it have the same basic platform as other Crosman rifles such as the Trail NP or Nitro Venom? Also, how loud is this rifle? Thanks!

asked Davis

I do also have the Trail NP 22 version and I can say yes it does have the same basic platform. The trail has the bull barrel so it is a little quieter but the Vantage appears to only be slightly louder. The Nitro Piston makes this smooth to cock to shoot. This rifle is a little lighter than the Trail and that to me is a big plus. The upgraded scope makes this such a deal that you can't go wrong with this purchase.

David from USA

It has the same power plant (nitro) of course but there are some differences. The Vantage has dovetail scope mounts where the Nitro Venom (1200 FPS) and the TNP have Weaver rails and no "iron" sights. The Vantage also comes with "iron" fiber optic sights that are plastic but accurate. As for power the Vantage has the same FPS rating as the .177 Nitro Venom so I assume that the Vantage and Nitro Venom are pretty close to one another in terms of performance with the Venom having "upgrades" like the Weaver mounts and a fancier stock with raised cheekpieces for a more comfortabe stock weld. The Trail NP, however, seems to be in another class of NP as far as the FPS rating which is 1500 FPS in .177 cal. As far as loudness I would would say that the first shot was not as loud as a .22 lr but in the same ballpark. I've only put maybe 20 or 30 pellets through it so far and it is quieting right down now. Hope this helps. Happy shootin'.

Stuart from USA

It does appear to have the same platform as the others mentioned but I like the stock on it much better. After 50-100 shots it is quieter than clapping my hands. It also has some good stopping power for those pesky varmints. I have recommended it to 2 friends that are going to get them.

Robert from USA

What is the biggest varmint that It could kill?

asked Josiah

This thing has a good solid kill shot with hollow points. I have taken out crows, big Jack Rabbits and a 7-8lb wood chuck from over 30yds.

Robert from USA

It depends on if you're talking humane, or head vs body shots etc. I'd say rabbit/crow are generally the largest anyone should be shooting because this gun can take them with heart/lung shots at 50 yards or less. You can take a coon for example too, but better to only take a brain shot and at closer range. The problem I have is people shooting something then letting it run off to suffer, and the bigger they are the more likely this will be. Same with range, in airguns the power drops off extremely fast so at 75 to 100 feet power can drop in half, and at 150' if could be one fourth! So when shooting a rabbit at that range it could just be cruel. You should also know what you and your gun can hit at range, don't shoot beyond your abilities and end up just taking a leg off a critter. So there are a lot of variables to your question, but as a general answer I'd say rabbit/crow out to 100 feet. Pellet weight and shape is a huge factor too, a heavy pellet can have more than twice the power of a light one at 100 feet, and four times the power at 150 feet. Since shooting game is often beyond 100 feet I would take pellet choice seriously.


Will this gun kill a "duck or goose"?

asked Jimmy Bayless

If I buy this rifle but I live in Panama, I could have problems with shipping when arrive in Panama?

marcos from Panama

Yes it can, within a reasonable range. I wouldn't shoot one at 100 yards for example. For comparo you can read comments/reviews on other 1200fps Crosman/Benjamin/Remington guns because they all have the same power. The nitro guns like this have slightly more power, maybe 5% tops, but they're all close enough to compare. This is a great deal, a nitro is usually a $50 add, plus the nicer scope. I'd buy it if I didn't have similar guns already. The stock is one of my favorites too, excellent looks and feel.


What is the effective range for varmint control?

asked kevin from USA

My effective range is 30-50 yards consistently with one shot to the head. I have dropped things from 75 yards but not as clean or consistently.

Robert from USA

probably under 80 yards, hope this helps
