Crosman 1077 Review

There are dozens of reasons why the Crosman 1077 Semi-Automatic CO2 Air Rifle is a top seller, and its Ruger 1022-inspired looks might be one of its best assets. If you’ve been stuck on deciding whether or not to invest in this automatic pellet gun, we’re about to tell you why it’s a safe call to go ahead and treat yourself!

Our Review of the Crosman 1077

At A Glance

With the 1077 being a pneumatic air gun, it’s easy to cock, super accurate, and great for repeated shooting scenarios since it enables you to use semi-automatic firing. As far as capacity goes, the Crosman air rifle takes 12 pellets at a time, and it reloads itself after you fire a shot, which obviously equates to prolonged shooting fun.

We loved the look of the semi-automatic air rifle, and the fact that this toy gave us the ability to shoot as fast as we could pull the trigger, sparked our interest even more. Obviously we put it through a range of field tests to determine its worth, and as you’ll see from our remarks, the Crosman 1077 is definitely worth its weight in gold, flaws and all!

Crosman 1077 Parts

The Stock

Since the Crosman 1077 sports an all-weather synthetic stock, it’s able to stand up to wind and weather with a smile, and it doesn’t need consistent maintenance, which is always welcome in our books. Furthermore, it comes with a plastic butt-pad which helps absorb recoil and makes the experience of shooting a little more comfortable. It also has stability-boosting checkering on both the grip and forearm.

The Sight

This semi-automatic pellet gun has a fiber optic sight and the front, which is pretty reliable and functional since you’ll be able to set it faster and fine tune its accuracy with ease, regardless of light conditions.

Crosman 1077 Performance Notes

With a maximum velocity of 625 feet per second, the Crosman semi-auto air rifle doesn’t really outshine its competitors, but it doesn’t fall behind either. You’ll get roughly 50 shots out of one CO2 cartridge, which also isn’t too shabby.

We love the Crosman 1077’s accuracy, and we’re talking accuracy up to 25 yards here. We got a lot of 1/2” at 40 feet, 1/2” at 20 feet, and 2.5” at 35 feet, which was good enough to seal the deal for us! Equally as impressive as its accuracy, was the Crosman’s barely-there shooting noise. We literally tested this guy in our back yards “just for the sake of it” and had absolutely zero issues from our neighbors.

Who Is The Crosman 1077 For?

Kids, women, elderly citizens, and even the experienced shooter that just wants to have a little fun every now and again or do a little target practice will love the value that the Crosman 1077 brings to the table.

Our Verdict:

For its price, the Crosman semi-automatic CO2 air gun is definitely something you can afford to purchase without feeling guilty. Some of this air rifle’s best features include its super lightweight, its accuracy, its ease of use, and the fact that it’s laughably cheap. As a final note, we have to remind you about the fact that if you’re a little heavy on the trigger-pulling action, go ahead and stock up on .177 pellets and a couple of CO2 canisters before your new baby arrives at your door!
