Oh come on! Pics please.
:nopics:Well, I been needing something around here to take care of some varments!
This will be great.
I bought a Crossman Nitro Venom Dusk.
It's a break barrel rifle with a Nitro piston, and comes with a 3-9x32mm scope.
Perfect for the @#% woodpeckers that have caused $1,500. worth of damage to my house.
There also seems to be a growing population of tree rats around me.
No ammo shortage here, $6.40 got me 500 rounds! Well, until they put a ban on lead anyway.
Can't wait to shot it and break it in. Still looking it over. I need to mount the scope, and give it a good cleaning.
I ordered a .177 boresnake for air rifles, but it has not come in yet.
Next, I need to put some suet up in the yard to pulkl those pesky birds in.
HAven't shot it yet, but from what I have read about this rifle, and also from the owners manual, it is as loud as a 22LR for the first 100 shots, until it is broke in some, then it is supposed to quiet down considerably.That is sweet. How loud is it?
Anything that breaks the speed of sound is going to sound like a 22. That's why I mentioned the Raptor pellets - they're made out of some kind of alloy, and they're much lighter than lead pellets which pumps up the muzzle velocity significantly. Beeman makes their Kodiak line of pellets, and I've used them with good results. They're heavier (and slower) than normal pellets, and they penetrate well. I shot a lot of them in my 22 cal side-cocker, and the weight on them was over 20 grains. The .177 variety are 10.65 grains compared to the normal 7 or so grains. Kodiak Extra Heavy PelletsHAven't shot it yet, but from what I have read about this rifle, and also from the owners manual, it is as loud as a 22LR for the first 100 shots, until it is broke in some, then it is supposed to quiet down considerably.
I didn't want to go overboard with cost for mine. Just wanted something to get the job done.Looks great! Thanks for the pix and let us know how it shoots. Have started looking into air guns -holy cow, soooo much to learn!! My desire is to have something that is relatively quiet so we can shoot it on our farmette without the neighbors having a canary! 15 acres just isn't big enough for shooting regular firearms -and besides, airgun pellettes are easy to find -unlike 22lr!!
Nitro pistons are barrel break, only 1 time.Stupid question, but is it pump or co2 powered?
