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.Â 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.
