Crosman SNR357 had caught my eye many months ago while browsing online stores. Tastes differ, as we all know, but this revolver stood out for me visually from the many other handguns. So, I ordered it and wanted to find out if I liked shooting with it.
Crosman SNR357 is a CO2 revolver that is powered by a standard 12-gram CO2 cartridge. You can use .177 (4.5 mm) steel BBs or .177 (4.5 mm) pellets. Since the barrel isn’t rifled, you can easily opt for the steel BBs. Often you have a rifled barrel on guns that are for both pellets and BBs. Steel BBs are not really recommended for this kind of barrel, as they can slowly damage it.
Today I have something really unusual for you: Unusual because I don’t normally test air rifles and pistols with steel BBs. My specialty tends to be pistols and rifles that shoot pellets. However, every now and then I look outside the box and discover products that I simply want to test. That’s now the case.
Frequent readers of my website have already noticed that I have been testing products from Crosman lately. That’s simply because many of them offer an added value and a lot of fun for shooters. Let’s see if Crosman R1 offers the same.
A lower recoil compared to a spring-piston air pistol and easy cocking thanks to the clip-on cocking aid are certainly the major advantages of this air pistol. In addition, it is pretty quiet and therefore suitable for attics and basements. The air pistol draws its power from the “Nitro Piston” which gives the name the abbreviation “NP”. This means that no spring is being tensioned while cocking, but rather the nitrogen, which is located in the piston, is being compressed.
Once again, an inexpensive Crosman product didn’t disappoint me. The gun is mostly made of metal. Only the grip and the part for pumping is made of plastic. The workmanship is good. The power of American Classic can be increased by pumping several times. Crosman 1377 is a dream for modders and for customizing fans.
Collectors of high-quality replicas will have their hearts beat faster at the sight of Remington 1875. When you hold the revolver with its cold steel in your hand, you first realize how beautiful it is. Pulling back the hammer is also incredibly fun and gives you a real western feel! You don’t actually shoot at targets with a revolver like this. You need tin pans, tin cans or bean cans here, just like in the wild west. I can highly recommend this revolver to every collector and plinker. A beautiful piece of history.
