    Didnt feel like joining an Airgun forum knowing there are a few airgun freaks on here, @Diaboloslinger and @Bone? :)

    Was looking for a pellet gun to get and have some fun during non work hours at camp.....usually someone in the bunk has one, but I'd like my own....:)

    Was looking at the Crosman 1322 and 1377, what are your thoughts? I like the idea of not having to buy Co2, and they are cheap and smaller than a rifle. Would be nice if it was a break-barrel for faster shooting as opposed to multi-pump.

    My main draw to those is their $50 price tag. I can only use it during the summer, so no point in dropping $300. Although, can i mount a scope straight outta the box? Are the iron sights good? I know theres a ton of mods and aftermarket parts, but i just want it to be shootable and fun without spending too much money. Lemme know what ya think i should do or get!

    The crossman pistols are nice for the money. I have both the co2 and pump and both have their advantages. The pump would be my choice if I could only have one. I'd also get it in 22 caliber

    Uhhh...
    1322 is great if you like to tinker. The sky is the limit for mods. To add any sort of optical site, you need to get a steel breech kit. They shoot dead nuts right outa the box.
    Break barrel pistols are too big/cumbersome in .22cal. They also require about 45 lbs. Cocking effort.
    Single pump pneumatics are great, but they really only come in .177.

    You can keep the original 7.5" barrel on it and it is just as accurate...I chose to upgrade to the 18" for more power

    I have to say a crosman 1322 is the way to go. Power for hunting and it can be adjusted for field use to the target range. you can use a scope on it out of the box yet the iron sights work perfectly fine, the only reason I would get a scope is long range hunting or very accurate plinking
    this is brown.gabe.77 (got locked out of my other account)

    Crossman 1377 Classic all the way. Maybe some disagree but I used that thing in the late 80s and early 90s and my brother used the hell of my first 1377 he killed all small game with it.

    Its a perfect back pack pistol that you can easily put a butt stock on for more stability.

    It can down rabbits, squirrels, pigeons, doves etc at 20 yards no problem even further with practice.

    Back in those days we used it with a discontinued Beeman Silver Jet pellet, but the standard wad cutter crosman pellets were good medicine on the pigeon family.

    Very accurate pistol.

    What pressure is your bottle regulated at? My .22 has an 18" barrel, is tuned for a 2300psi fill, and slings 25.39 grain JSBs accurately for around 24fpe. I also get around 30 shots per fill. I've been thinking about building another one for remote air LOL.

    I used to have a .177 Gat with a barrel you had to push in, I think it was made in the 1950's. I once managed to knock my brother out of a tree with it, but i had thrown it at him.

    I wouldn't recommend one for accuracy or reload rate :)

    1377 the most expensive $50 gun you will ever buy! Got it for from my son, Christmas and started modding it right away, still not quite done (if I ever will be!). Those are my handmade grips, a major change from the plastic. View attachment 44873 View attachment 44873 Start with a steel breech and change the sights, cost you about a $100. or just keep it stock and kill some cans...... 20170221_192142.jpg 20170221_192515.jpg

    I bought the tank used and the guy that sold it to me said that the output pressure is 1100....I'm guessing it is at least 1000 cause it was only giving me 550fps with 850psi tank...
