When attempting to purchase an air rifle, there are many different factors that need to be taken into account. The power source is very important and impacts the other traits of the weapon. If you’re setting your sights on a CO2 pellet gun, which is reliable and affordable, you’ll definitely want to consider the Crosman 1077 Air Rifle. We recently got our hands on this rifle and have been thrilled, despite the $50 price tag. Crosman has definitely delivered and you will be able to find out why below!
CO2 And Semi-Automatic
If you’re the type of person, who enjoys shooting a gun and doesn’t want to mess around with pumping, the Crosman Repeat Air 1077 is a suitable alternative. Since it is equipped with a C02 cartridge, it is capable of providing the user with a semi-automatic firing system. In fact, the gun is equipped with a removable magazine, which fits 12 shots. When it is filled with all 12 shots, you can pull the trigger 12 times and fire 12 shots. This helps to offer the most authentic experience possible. Of course, these cartridges do not last forever. Thankfully, they’re relative cheap and can be replaced easily. This gun’s cartridge can be found underneath the barrel for easy access.
The CO2 system offers a unique experience, which is a little bit limited, when compared to others. This gun is capable of firing at 625 feet per second and has a maximum distance of 20 yards. The CO2 cartridge will need to be replaced every 40 to 60 shots. Suffice to say, this gun is only suitable for target practicing and will likely not be able to bring down animals or prey. Still, the setup offers tremendous convenience and very good accuracy. Remember that CO2 guns work differently depending on the atmosphere and temperature.
Weight and Length
This gun only weighs 4 pounds, which is very lightweight. Rest assured that you’d be able to carry the weapon around very easily, without a lot of trouble. The weapon is approximately 37 inches in length and will provide you with an authentic feel, if you’re used to shooting shotguns. The gun is very realistic looking and you should be careful, if you are forced to carry it out in public. Otherwise, the gun looks cool and you’d barely know the difference from a distance.
The gun is made out of rugged plastic, although there are few small steel pieces and metal parts. This helps to provide a little bit of durability to the overall package. When using the weapon, it is imperative to make sure to keep all of the moving parts lubricated. Otherwise, this weapon is capable of providing you with longevity. We’ve had it for a few months and yet to experience any complications.
For the price of the air rifle, you would think you were receiving something underwhelming. Although we’ve experienced better results, the price is definitely justifiable. The CO2 cartridge is convenient and capable of allowing a semi-automatic firing system, which certainly offers plenty of fun! Don’t expect long distance accuracy and you’ll enjoy this air rifle tremendously.
