I’ve now had mine for over four years and have put close to 5000 pellets shot through it. In my earlier review, Jan 2009, I was worried that using heavy pellets may damage the mainspring but this has not been so. It shoots well with three different pellets.

JSB Exacts at 8.44 grains crony out the fastest;

Low – 878.1

High 882.1

Ave. 880.4

X spread

4.03

S.D. 1.41

Crosman Prem. Ultra Mags. at 10.5 grains;

Low 769.8

High 777.6

Ave. 772.7

X spread

7.71

S.D. 3.16

Beeman Silver Arrows at 11.4 grains;

Low 735.9

High 746.9

Ave. 741.4

X spread

11

S.D. 4

The rate of drop with the Silver Arrows at 30 yards is 3.2 from the muzzle and still has 600 fps with 9.33 ft lbs of energy.

To keep it grouping well, do regular maintenance. Keep the stock screws snug ( not tight ), plus I run a dry q-tip through the bore to keep it clean. Note: If you are having accuracy problems with your Storm this may help. If it is shooting fine, do not do this.

This is one sweet air rifle. Once you change that crappy trigger with a GRTIII trigger. The original trigger has way too much creap. You will never know when it is going to fire. The so called adjustable 2nd stage is totally useless. You will be turning that little screw until the cows come home or your blue in the face (which ever comes first) The GRTIII trigger allows you to adjust both stages. To your liking. The gun will be very accurate after you change the trigger. The gun itself is very powerful as well. A real hard hitter. You may want to add a bipod to it, for target shooting. That Center Point scope is nice. I’ve read were people have changed the scope because they didn’t like how it held sites. Seems to me that all they had to do was change the trigger.

I bought this rifel at walmart inital testing proved to be good in the first year of use ive recorded 75 yard squirl kills at least 6 of them with the first shot 15 minutes befor writing this review i took my storm out and shot a 6 inch group at 75 yards which is preety good for an air rifel i use crossman hollow points and love the thump they make upon impact the only down side to this rifel are the cheap scope mounts i replaced with 4 scope mounts made for high power hunting rifels like a 300 mag and ive replace the spring twice in two years ive found a few sites online offering titanium springs and have been shooting hard tring to brake this second spring so i can buy one lol in order to shoot this gun accuratly you must do two things one the scope must be secured and i cant stress this enought two scope rings just dosent cut it i sugest 4 rings or a one piece scope mount second is a good quality spring these two things i feel would make this rifle shoot with the best of them

I wanted an air rifle to target practice with and read lots of reviews on dif. rifles.I bought the Gamo whisper thinking I should spend more and get the best.I goofed on this guess.I took it back and tried others and then bought the Storm XT.I sighted it in with open sights and it was perfect.Put the scope on and sighted it in at 90ft. and from a good rest It will continually fire a quarter size pattern.The rifle is very nice looking ,not to heavy, a good price, and I honestly beleive the best one out there even at over twice the price.The scope and mts are all a part of an outstanding package for a price tag.$100 .How any one could down grade this rifle has to be personal taste ,Not the quality the package.

I guess you might say that I am a beginner air rifle owner. However, I’ve hunted most of my life. This rifle hits hard and is accurate consistently. Though it is my first air rifle, I am pleased with its quality. So far I’ve only target practiced with it, but I’m sure I’ll be able to hunt squirrels and rabbits with it. For the money you can not go wrong.

I have heard good things about the Crosman Storm so had to try one out. It is a good looking gun and seem to be well made. For the $100 is a great first step into the break barrel pellet rifles for a beginer. It hits really hard and will penitrate any 1/2″ board back stop you find so it is not a subdivision friendly rifle at all. Also the scope and mounts are not bad either for the price at all. The down side of the rifle is that the power lever will not stay consistant at all. If you are a target shooter you will be disapoint badly. The average is a 2-3″ group at 30 yards with this rifle. Could I hit a squirel, sure, but not every time. A squirels head is within that 3″ range so no dought you could make that hit at a reasonable average. A coon or possum, I would think so but look at the target size there. If you want a 1″ group or even less, look for another rifle. If you want to shoot cans, bottles or what have you and don’t mind a few misses…go for it. Good gun but could be a lot better. By the way, the trigger is not good at all, you just never know when it will go off.

I purchased the Storm XT,similiar to the Quest 1000 except with a variabe power scope. This is a very good adult air rifle at a very reasonable price. After breakin the gun is quite powerful and accurate. Used it for squirrel hunting – two shots two dead squirrels. Instant and very humane kills – I did eat the squirrels. The piston spring did break after a year of continuous use. Replaced the spring for 6 dollars. Crosman stocks a good inventory of replacement parts for this rifle. The spring is easy to replace. I would recommend replacing the trigger with a GRT III. Lighter pull and much less travel.

This gun will shoot with the best of them. You just have to swap out the trigger with a GRTIII trigger upgrade I shoot the bullseyes bulleye with this gun and smile evertime. The original trigger that came with the gun had way too much creap and ya never knew when the gun was going to fire. This gun is sweeeeeet I gave my woodstock a cote of gloss varvish and now it shoots as good as it looks.
