Crosman 1077 C02 12 Shot Repeater

Today was a great day here at Airgunweb.com.  We had another air gun come in for review that I’m very excited to talk about.  We also received a new lightweight bi-pod, some specialty pellets from Gamo, Beeman indoor/outdoor pellet trap and some Gamo Targets.  We’ll get to each of these ask we have time.

The air rifle we received was the Crosman 1077 CO2 12 shot repeater with walnut stock. The barrel is rifled steel with the rest of the gun  mostly fairly sturdy plastic.  The 12 shot clip is a real neat feature that makes loading and firing VERY fun and easy.  The air gun ships with a fiber optic front sight and adjustable rear sight. The paperwork claims a maximum velocity of 625 fps but we’ll talk about that another day.  The rear sight is adjusted by sliding a ramp to move the point of impact up and down.  There are two screws that you loosen to adjust the POI left to right.

Now normally when I see these types of sights I just give up and install a scope, but today I figured I give the rifle a try with the open sights.  Out of the box at 10 meters it shot low and left about 1/2  inch from the bull’s-eye.  When I loosened up the screws to adjust left to right I found something very interesting.  The sight actually clicked when I moved it.  I’m not sure if it was just sticking or if it this feature was built into the sight.  I’ll take it apart later and let you know what I find.  In any case it made adjusting the rifle very easy and very fast.

After we were sighted in, we were able to shoot, from a standing position, quarter size groups at 10 meters.  From a sitting position and a rest, those groups shrank down to dime size.  Now I also want to add that my eyesight is not very good so open sights are just not my best friend, but I was pretty happy with this so far.  I’ll be putting a scope on it for the next report.  We got all this from a $99 dollar, multi-shot, CO2 repeater.  If you wanted to save a few bucks, you could get the same accuracy from the synthetic stock model at only $68 from Compasseco. 

If low noise target practice is your bag, you should really take a look at this air rifle.  I could not imagine using this for anything other than paper targets, so don’t get one to clear out pests.  We’ll have more info for you once we can take it on the range and see how accurate we’ll be at 20 meters and use our new chronograph to measure real FPS.

    I have owned the 1077 since last summer. I have the black synthetic stock. It is a hoot to shoot. I get about 60 rounds or so out of a reg sized co2 cartridge. That is accurate rounds since the power drops off after about 50 shots or so. I want to add one of those power sources so I can have longer shooting sessions.

    Thanks again for this great website. Keep up the great reviews. I enjoy them every time I read them. And now after see the version with the walnut stock I want one of those too lol.

    pbelkin,

    I figured I’d get the adaptor too at some point. It will make for a good “part 3” of the review. Do you have the means to test what kind of FPS you are getting from yours? My initial tests were a bit disappointing barely managing 400 FPS. I did not have a lot of time to try different pellets as it started to rain so I’ll have to get back to it once the weather clears up. One thing for sure is that it is VERY fun to shoot and VERY accurate for an inexpensive air rifle.

    Sorry I don’t have a device to measure. I use crosman copperheads cause they are cheap in price but group quite well. I would guess 400-500 is about right. If I shoot at anything besides card board and cans they richoet pretty bad. But with my winchester 800x and Benjmain 392 .22cal I dont have this problem at all

We are working with the Hospital to work down the ridiculous and obscene bill they say I owe.  We hope to have a resolution soon.  In the meantime, I’m back to work making content for airgunners!  Thank you so much to all those that have reached out and shared their support.
