Accurate, Great value, very upgradeable Nov 18, 2007
By Ronald Ih
Inexpensive, accurate, powerful, plentiful upgrade options, pump action means you don't have to keep buying CO2 cartridges
Stock sights aren't great, somewhat heavy, barrel wiggles slightly which is somewhat of an issue if you get the 459MT sight mounts for a red-dot or scope sight
Overall I am very happy with this gun especially given its price and upgrade flexibility. You can't beat the price/performance of this airgun which is probably why it's been around for so long. It is not perfect, but given the price and ability to upgrade you can't beat it.
Details on Pros:
This gun has a pretty long barrel for a pistol and as a result is quite accurate for ranges of 20-30 yds. It is also quite powerful but will not go through a 1/2" redwood fence. However, it is powerful enough that you do need to be careful with it. Since the gun is so inexpensive, you can easily get other add-ons that can make it a much more stable shooting platform without making the whole purchase too pricey: shoulder stock (~$20), red-dot sight (~$15), steel breech with integrated scope mount grooves (~$30). I would also recommend getting a steel target trap so you can shoot at targets and know that the pellets are being stopped.
Details on cons:
The stock sights kinda suck. I got a red-dot sight for it and once I got it dialed in, it is quite accurate to 25-30 yds which is all I need. I got the 459MT to mount the red-dot to the barrel, but the barrel twists slightly and can throw off the sighting but doesn't seem to affect the overall accuracy of the gun however. As a result, I may get the steel breech with sight grooves to have a better mount for the sight.
The gun itself is somewhat heavy, but part of that is because it has a long steel barrel which helps its accuracy so I guess it is a reasonable tradeoff. However, for shooters that are not very physically strong, it may make holding it steady without a rest of some sort somewhat difficult.
I got the steel breech for the 1377 from Crosman and it made a *huge* difference. The biggest was a decent scope/sight mount. The stock plastic breech kinda bites. The steel breech's two main benefits are 1) a stable sight mount, 2) a set screw that keeps the barrel from moving around. The action also feels much better but I'm not sure that it has any direct effect on performance.
So, with the following three add-ons, you can have a very accurate mini-rifle:
1) Shoulder stock (~$20)
2) Steel breech (~$40) (strongly recommended even without shoulder stock)
3) 4x scope ($~10)
The 459MT is really not useful with the plastic breech because the barrel moves and constantly throws your sighting off.
FYI, the steel breech is a little tricky to install (not too bad) and there is a small steel sleeve that can pop out and roll away when you remove the stock breech, so be prepared.

Great air pistol Apr 13, 2007
By J. Spencer
This pistol is a great air pistol that delivers more fire power (~600fps @ 10 pumps) than most other air pistols. This pistol is extremely accurate and does well with mounted scopes or red dot sights using the additional 459MT Crossman dove tails mounts. The pistol also has ambidextrous grips for left and right handed shooters. The pistol also offers a choice between a traditional nocth rear sight and aperture sight. The sights are all in one piece and to switch you just have to unscrew it from the back of the pistol and flip from the aperture to notch or vice-verse. The rear sight is also fully adjustable for drop and windage.
The Not So Good:
The pistol could benifit from a built in magazine so that shooting is faster, but slower shooting does encourage safety. The pistol could also benifit from a claw on the back of the air tube so that the sharper parts don't cut into the hand between thumb and fore-finger as much (not a big problem). The pistol is really front heavy making single hand shooting imposible; this is inherent in the design of any pump air pistol.
With selectable power (amount of pumps used) and choise of built in fully adjustable aperture or notch sight and the capability of using universal sights with the crosman dovetails, this gun is great for learning the art of marksmanship. The pistol's 600fps also allows for the ability to use it for rodent control as well. The pistol is made of high quality components and will last for years to come.

Crosman 1377 Feb 15, 2007
By Rodney G. Luna
Wonderful air gun. One of the most powerful air guns that Crosman ever made. Add the rifle stock (available through Crosman) and it is dead accurate. Over 600 FPS with lost of knockdown power. You can adjust the power with the number of strokes, Up to 10, on the pump. unfortunately the stock is made of plastic. But the gun is wonderful. it is also a very long gun compaired to other pistols.
Also use brand name pellets. There is a difference. Cheep pellets are poorly weighted and will wonder off target every time. High quality pellets will fly straighter.

unmatched for the price Mar 13, 2007
By R. L. Waters
This is a great little air pistol for the money. It has the take down power and accuracy that is out of its class for the price. And you never have to buy Co2. I've heard stories of these getting passed down though generations and still working great. Only issue is the newest ones being sold now come with plastic grips that are fairly low quality. Many wood grips that will fit are sold on the internet.

Accuracy, Powerful, Accuracy, Powerful Feb 10, 2008
By T. Anderson
This thing is very powerful and very accurate. From 15 feet I hit a 1/2 inch center 5 times in a row at 4 pumps. I started with 1 pump, then 2, 3, and finally 4 hit dead center. The first 3 were low, and 5 pumps took it high.
Long range was just as good. Took 2 shots to get sited in, and then hit 3 bottles at 30 yards in a row.
