I took a closer look at Crosman 1077 for you. In the following text and in the video, you can find out why I kept it in the end.
Technical specifications of Crosman 1077
Crosman 1077 is a CO2 air rifle with a 12-round drum magazine. The double action trigger automatically rotates the magazine to the next position when released, making the next pellet ready to fire. The 12 rounds can be shot in no time.
I always run the risk of aiming at the first shot and then shooting the remaining 11 pellets without aiming. Simply because it is incredibly fun. Three full magazines can be fired with roughly constant performance, then the performance declines gradually. This is due to the capacity of the 12-gram CO2 cartridge which will eventually be empty. The nice thing is that these cartridges are not too expensive.
So: Unscrew the cap of the CO2 chamber, insert a new cartridge, and continue.
Material and workmanship of Crosman 1077
The air rifle comes in two different versions. One with a polymer plastic stock like I use here, and then a second version with a beech wood stock. Both stocks are well suited for both left- and right-handed shooters. Due to the light weight, the rifles can be shot nicely by younger shooters under adult supervision. Crosman 1077 with its plastic stock weighs 3.7 lbs. (1.6 kg). That is really extremely light. Of course, the handling benefits enormously from this.
Shooting Crosman 1077
The non-adjustable plastic trigger is comparatively stiff. However, I don’t think this is a great disadvantage. Nobody will ever want to shoot a competition with this air rifle. Its strength clearly lies in the rapid firing at reactive targets. Meaning: Put something in your shooting range that is fun to shoot at. For example, shooting at empty shotgun shells is incredibly fun.
Of course, the rifle also has a safety. Fortunately, it can be adjusted manually. So, you don’t have to deactivate it before every shot. That would make it difficult to have fun shooting with 1077.
An option to shoot a little more precisely than I did in the video would be mounting a reflex sight on Crosman. I think this is the perfect combination for action-packed shooting.
Fun, fun. fun! That’s all I can say. I must have run through two dozen magazines before I started writing down my thoughts on the rifle and filming the review. The rifle simply awakens the child in me which I deliberately keep alive.
It’s an incredibly great change from the highly focused shooting I usually do with my other guns.
And that’s how the shooting sport has to be: Diverse and fun.
