I’ve only had mine a month but have loved every minute of shooting it. Have not experienced any of the problems some say they have had,…Jamming, hard to load and unload etc. Mine has worked flawlessly from the beginning. Read the manual, take the time to sight it in properly, load the clips properly, oil the cylinder tip, and you should have nothing but fun like me. READ THE MANUAL, and any other tips you can find online. They’re out there. Enjoy!

It’s another Toy that shoots with medium to weak power. It hangs up every now and then. It is built like a loose plastic toy.

I recommend not buying this unless you really want a cheap plastic toy.

The problem with the SN1200 is that the butt is loose and not very comfortable at the shoulder the sighting system is at best not very good,the fastfire blowback is a good idea,but not on the”nightstalker” I would not recommend the SN1200 ,because i feel that it is a 1077 with a small not very well put together plastic stock.

Fun, Fun, Fun, Once you get down the loading system its bang, bang, bang! I was surprised of how accurate it is with a red dot and or a 2x, 3x, 4x, scope. Again I shot a 1/2″ at 20 yards with the scope and a tripod rest. Excellent balance. And being a Vietnam Vet I am used to the “Plastic” feel. I think this rifle will be a collectors item 20 years from now. I also have a Baretta Storm and it looks and feels like the Storm. Except for the weight. Crosman has done a great job with this one. I had NO jams firing over 600 rounds of lead! SPEED LOADER IS A MUST!!! You better save your money for ammo and extra clips. I bought 30 clips and it seems like I am always reloading them so be prepaired. This rifle also does not seem to get the cold syndrome from firing the 12 shots in a row. Maybe the blowback thing that keeps it from getting cold? By the time you reload it is warmed up again. Volocity seems to stay up there where it belongs at least here in Hawaii. The temperature is almost always 72 -84degF so I am getting close to the max all the time. In closing I recommend this rifle to anyone that has the money and likes excitment in a new toy! At 59 years old this rifle is still exciting!!!

well, my friend john received his nightstalker in this past week, and today we had a chance to do some breaking in. just thought i would give you a short review on our thoughts.

the gun is very plastic. the only metal you can see on the entire thing, is the barrel “shroud” sticking out of the end of the receiver. it is not entirely repulsive, but plastic is plastic. it does look and feel like it will not be problematic in the breakage category, but it may scar quite easily.

the airsource container is quite easily accessible through the butt of the receiver. main complaint with the airsource is that if you get one of those awefully smelly ones, you have to use it all up, smelling it of course, or waste it by unscrewing the canister and disposing of it. at 4.50 a container, smell the gas (literally).

once it is all gassed up, you need to load the rotary clips. that would be a real pain in the rear to keep loading those by hand, considering all of the ammo you will be going through, so take some advice and get the speed loader. it works wonders. it uses the standard 1077 clip, but that is where the 1077 resemblance ends. you get to load 48 pellets at a time in the speed loader, and inveriably one or two will always load upside down. once finished with the speedloader, use a pencil or small screwdriver to push out the backwards pellet and insert a new one by hand. very easy, very necessary.

you then push the cover on the receiver forward, insert the rotary clip, and close the cover. cock the hammer slide one time, take aim with the not so great peep sight and front post, take off safety (if you were safety minded enough to engage it to begin with), and commence pulling the trigger! 12 pulls later (as fast as you can pull it), put on safe, open the cover, and take out the clip, insert another and continue until trigger finger is raw or you get tired or you have to run to wallyworld for the fourth time for airsource cartridges.

the sights are very crude, but useable, and decent groups were attainable at ten meters, but not under 1 1/2 to 2″. we installed a small 4 X 32 fixed obj. RWS airgun scope on the ns to see how good it could group. this scope (pictured) has been beaten to death by a diana 5g pistol and an RWS 94. beaten so badly that the eyepiece is superglued together. but, it was the only thing we had that would fit between the sights since we had no high risers. you can see the groups for yourselves. very impressive at ten meters with a bad scope, firing slowly (about 2 to 4 seconds between shots). you can also see the rapid fire group shot as fast as i could pull the trigger without leaving the target. very nice.

best velocity we got from this gun was 485 fps with cplites, noting that the temp in the house and outside was constant at 75 degrees. we were a little disapppointed in the velocity and the shot count around 200 or so per airsource. but that may improve dramatically in warmer weather. the trigger was very responsive, and broke cleanly at around 2 to 3 pounds, and felt nothing like the 1077 trigger at all. probably could use some polishing and some moly.

after about 1 hour and a thousand rounds, i ordered mine. be sure to order the speed loader, it is a must, and get some extra clips.

all in all, it was and is a blast to shoot. shot some 21 yard groups in 10-15 mph wind with the scope and got around 2 inches. it will definitely be a fun gun. can’t wait to get mine and see if we can do something about the power.

oh yeah, the gun is not too loud as it is, but as you can see, we have one of the RWS muzzle thingies on it which collects alot of the dust, makes it look cool, adds some heft to it, makes its bark not so bad.

also, one thing to note, when the gun fires, the blowback action uses co2 and some of that blowback is right around your face and nose, so it might be a good idea to wear shooting glasses if you don’t. not terribly unnerving, just a little annoying.

I first opened the box and saw the plastic they call (resin impregnated synthetic polymer) OK I will admit I was hopeing for something along the lines of bakelite not the old breakable stuff but the new synthetic polymer nope what I got was plastic with the looks and feel of a squirt gun big disappointment in the looks and feel department.

I�m a big fan of the co2 always have been and always will be so for me the 88g air-source was a big plus I don�t mine the cost, Co2 in pellet guns is second only to

nice cold fountain drink, the air-source is easy to get to and insert my only concern is with the plastic stock I think the butt will end up with tape for a hinge.

The sights are a hit and miss not very impressive.

Loading the revolver style 12-shot magazine is a pain speed loader is the only way to go here

Target-grade accuracy NOT EVEN CLOSE especially with the minimally adjustable sights

I�m not impressed with the crosman nightstocker it appears to be along the lines of the ford lynx or pinto after you use it for a few years throw it away sure you can rebuild it but the chassis will always be loose and rattle.

Which brings me to the inside of the nightstocker, what I see is a lot of time working out the bugs created by production demands for the 110.00 its not a hideous gun after knowing what I know now I would buy another and most likely will. There are better guns for the money (not of the same style) if you want quality save your money it is better then the 1077 and can�t compare to the Crosman 600. The bottom line, I like this gun while not overly impressed its a keeper I’m sure this thing will cost me big in the pellet department and I will end up bulking to save the penneys look out cans theres a new toy in town
