The Nitro Piston Technology has proven to be a valuable aid to hunters. There's nothing worse than knowing your metal spring might be fatigued and not provide the power and energy you need to humanely dispatch your prey. With a gas piston, you'll always have the same power and never have to give it a second thought because the gas piston does not suffer from the same issues.

  • Crosman Nitro Venom Dusk
  • Breakbarrel
  • Gas piston
  • Single-shot
  • Weaver rail (no open sights)
  • 70% quieter than most other breakbarrels!
  • Muzzlebrake
  • Ambidextrous synthetic stock with grooves on forearm & grip
  • Dual raised cheekpieces
  • Incl. CenterPoint Optics 4x32 scope + mount (unmounted)

If you shoot a lightweight pellet so its velocity exceeds the speed of sound- it could result in your pellet breaking the sound barrier and the gun being louder than expected! The speed of sound depends on humidity- temperature and altitude. Generally speaking- it's between 1-060 fps and 1-115 fps.

Here are the benefits of Nitro Piston Technology:
  • Smoother cocking
  • Smoother shooting
  • No spring torque
  • No spring fatigue- even if you leave it cocked for hours
  • Functions perfectly in cold weather
  • Lasts longer than a metal spring

Nice Rifle - Keep the scope
October 27, 2015
This rifle is solid and powerful. I am still in the break in period with this gun with about 200 pellets so far, so I am still fiddling around with different pellets since accuracy is my priority. It definitely seems to prefer heavier pellets. The trigger is awful, but for a rifle in this price range I cannot complain too much. This is my first Nitro air rifle and it is certainly quieter to shoot than my RWS #52. I don't think my neighbors notice a difference, because the noise from the spring in the RWS is mostly transmitted through the stock to my ear, and not heard by bystanders, but I do prefer the noise from the Nitro as the shooter. I wish the rifle had mechanical sights, but that's not a deal breaker as I plan to use a scope for most of my shooting. Speaking of the scope, I wish the rifle did not come with the one that was included in the package. It is a CeterPoint 3-9x32 which I think is the right size for this rifle, but the scope did not hold up to the recoil this powerful rifle generates. The rifle became unsafe to shoot after 20 shots or so because my pellet trap is only 12"x12" and at 15 yards this rifle would occasionally miss the trap! I put the scope from my RWS on this rifle and now it shoots 1-2" groups. I would have preferred to save some money up front and had the option to buy the rifle without a scope, and then put that money towards a better scope. Now I will have to buy another scope and use this CenterPoint as a paper weight or something. One of the best things about this rifle is the integral Picatinny rail on the receiver for mounting optics. This allows you to mount just about any scope with your choice of rings to accommodate your scope - Nice touch! PS - I have emailed Airgun Depot about the scope, so we will see if they can help.
Well built, sturdy rifle. Very comfortable stock. Fit and finish are good. One of the best things about this rifle that should be adopted by all manufacturers is the integral Picatinny rail. This makes scope mounting much easier and opens up more mounting options.
No mechanical sights. Trigger could be better. I like an automatic safety, this gun has a manual safety. The CenterPoint scope on this rifle did not survive the recoil, and had to be replaced. They always say, "The most expensive piece of equipment you'll ever buy is the good one you bought to replace the cheap one you bought, trying to save some money."

Great rifle!
June 23, 2015
I love this rifle. I got the .177 and it is a solidly built, fairly quiet, powerful, accurate, nice looking rifle. The trigger is not as adjustable as you may think seeing as it is advertised as "adjustable". It's OK though, just not a true two stage, CBT like my NP2. My only negative would be that there's no sling attatchnents. No problem.
Stated above.
No sling attachments.

I like this gun. It has no problem putting RWS Superdome 8.3 grain pellets through 3/4 inch soft plywood at 5 yards. Haven't taken it outside yet. It has a pretty decent two stage trigger with a very predictable release. I don't have a chronograph yet, so can't say what velocities I am getting. It is a little stiff at first when cocking it with the barrel, but after putting a few rounds through it, it is getting easier to do. Everything is tight, no loose tolerances, and the gun has a very solid feel to it. The silencer or suppressor works very well. I have been shooting it in my bedroom and into the closet against a backstop, and with my door closed, no one hears it. I would definitely recommend this gun. I was very surprised with I looked at the scope. It is quite heavy, good quality movement to the dials, and is easy to focus. It has the mil-spec dot on reticle sighting system. I think this was $120 well spent. I look forward to getting more familiar with it.

Love this gun
October 4, 2013
This thing is awesome. Trigger is smooth, although I can feel the extra effort it takes to cock the gun compared to my springers, it's smooth. Accuracy is nice (after sighting in and couple hundred pops with it). The recoil is noticably different than a springer. It's strong but instant like an airgun, no spring vibration. Lead pellets whisper through it but, alloy pellets give me that cracking of the sound bearier breaking that I love. The neighbors think I'm shooting a 22 lr. I added a laser to the gun and I am in the process of creating a log of site settings for the various pellet types and weights that I use. I leave the laser set at my favorite pellet as a reference to go back to and all settings are made from that point and logged. Shooting beer cans just makes me drink more beer. The refurb at $109.00 is a must have. Thanks Airgun Depot, ya'll did it for me again.
I didn't even get to the scope. It pulls your (work) right in close. Appreciated at my age. (57)
Once a day I have to stop shooting and go to work 2nd shift.

Refurbished Crosman Nitro Venom Dusk .177
August 28, 2013
Received this rifle in as new condition, one tiny scratch on elevation cap on my scope, touched up can't see it now. That happened in transit, no big deal. Cleaned the barrel with dry patches, mounted scope, tightened all screws and bolts on the rifle. I set up target at 33', fired first shot, 3" high dead on. Then put twenty pellets in that hole cover with quarter, no flyers. The gun was already broken in and ready to go. No recoil to speak of, very low noise. Using Beemans Kodiak 10.65gr pellets, gun loves these. Tried six other pellets, gun loves these heavy guys. After, 200 shots, scope rings loosened and forearm screws as well. That's normal with the hard hitting power of this gun. Tightened the rifle up, proceeded to shoot as before. Have now shot nearly 400 pellets, gun still preforming well. Adjusted objective end of scope for no movement on 9 power @33',adjusted eye piece, very clear, holds zero. You would have to do this for each yardage to make it perfect, but is pretty clear without all this adjustment up to seven power. Would guess, parallex is set at fifty yards on this scope. Don't know if point of impact will change, with change of magnification? I will try it but that's only important to hunters, not hole punchers! Has the Crosman trigger, just deciding whether to give the Hillbilly fix or buy a trigger. Will tear gun down and clean and lube it, blue Loc-tite everything, reassemble. Its a keeper, warranty is out anyway. Maybe put a little double stick carpet tape under the scope rings. I owned a gun shop for years, a little trick I used on long belted big game rifles. That's recoil son! A 340 Weatherby Mag from benchrest will rock your world !!!!. I own a lot of guns center fire and rim fire. I have target triggers that cost four times price of this gun, scopes and guns that cost ten times this gun. I'm new with airguns, just a hobby, they are not perfect, but I don't know how they build them for this money?
Low cost of getting into shooting sports
Airguns, I think you better learn how to work on them. Nature of the beast!

Refurbished Crosman Nitro Venom .177 Caliber Review
June 17, 2013
I purchased this rifle at $114.99 shipped to my house with a $5 off shipping coupon code. Shipping was very fast at 3-4 business days. The rifle looks pretty clean out the box and was double packaged very well. No signs of wear from previous use on the outside of this refurbished rifle. Upon breaking the barrel for inspection I noticed a slight gouge on the left side where the barrel is machined to fit the seal. The seal was unblemished and goes in deep enough to where this slight gouge does not affect the integrity of the seal. First 5 shots were pretty darn loud as expected even with lead pellets.This mellows off at about 10 shots. It took about 100-150 shots to break in the rifle and get pretty decent groups. This rifle is powerful and pretty consistent for the price.The scope is just fine for the rifle and just needed a little adjustment to the back lens to get it focused in right.Overall I am pleased with this rifle although I personally would not let a rifle leave my factory with any kind of gouge near the seal, refurbished or not. When I get done doing a little bit of work on the trigger this rifle will be hard to beat at this price.
Solid, powerful rifle at a really good price.
Quality control could be better from Crosman.

Still in the 100 shot break in period, but we are able to hit a dime at about 50 feet! Very quiet. Has more recoil than I expected, but not bad. Trigger pull is smooth. I only wanted a rifled barrel and 1000 fps and maybe a scope. I got that and a whole lot more.
price, accurate, silent, scope, nitro, trigger
recoil, seems large, forearm wide to allow break barrel, 6.2 # feels heavy to old geezer like me.

Looking good so far
June 1, 2013
Bought this a week ago, can see no evidence of any prior issues. Initial cocking was hard, but that has loosened up nicely. Scope is not bad. Scope mount is good. Not exactly quiet, but not a loud crack with lead pellets either. Trigger does not adjust, but it is tolerable and has also smoothed out during the centering process. Sling rings would be nice....I'm not sure if the stock can be reliably screwed into as it is plastic so any feedback from others would be welcome. I have always used Crosman Premier .177 hollow points in my other gun but this last tin has over 70 bad units which is a pain (too small so they fall through, no hollow point). Would like to hear other pellet recommendations for this gun before I start experimenting. The rifle however gets two thumbs up. I will update with any new findings if anything significant arises.
