This is a nice Air Rifle for the price. Purchased at Wally World for $149 in Paragould, AR. while visiting my folks. Brought it back to SoCal to check it out.

Suggest shoot 250 rounds before mounting scope. Break-in period takes a little longer than most guns. NPSS needs a little more time than the old springers.

I was able to mount and site scope in after 250 shots. Took about 5 shots. This is a tack driver after sighting in at 20 yds.

Trigger is not adjustable. Tried my best. GRT upgrade may help but break-in will happen after 250 shots. Might as well wait until initial break-in period and see if you can live with the trigger pull.

Break-in period is needed. Once this is done, I believe this is the last Air Gun you will own. I Chrony’ed at avg. 875 FPS for .22. Very powerful. .22 is the best bang for the buck. Very satisfied with performance. Nice Satin stock appearance.

I found a good deal on this Titan so I jumped on it! It is a nice shooting air rifle. Smooth cocking and the muzzle break helps with the cocking since I shortened the barrel 4 inches. Still get under a dime at 25 yards. It was a little hold sensitive so I put a summit stock on it. I like the way it handles now. It it my favorite hunter,compact,and 14 fpe. .22

I would recomend the Titan even without doing all the mods I did.It is quieter than Quest. Thanks!

It was broke in at around 100 pellets, which suprised me…

It’s an excellent gun for the money. I bought mine in Jan 2012 so I’m guessing it’s a 2010-’11 model? It came with a very nice muzzle brake which I’m a big fan of, I do NOT like plastic brakes, and alum are nice but not as nice as steel in both damage resistance and weight which help stabilize the gun for accuracy.

The thumbhole stock was much better than I had anticipated and is among my favorite stocks now. The nitro spring is much smoother and much quieter than it�s coil spring brothers and is imo worth the extra money if you just want a gun that works out of the box. If you�re a tuner and intend to take it apart for a full tune then there�s little advantage to buying nitro, but if you�ve never had one I�d suggest it because they are cool and being different you should try it. The power is usually a little higher because the nitro spring is stronger than the coil version, however you pay for that and more with a heavier cocking effort. Still the effort is reasonable and most adults and boys should not have a problem, but for smaller kids or girls I�d have them cock a similar gun to see if they can deal with it. Mine cocks with a peak pressure of 28lbs, but I lubed my correctly so friction is minimal. Many of these guns take up to 32lbs.

The power of mine is 19 ftlbs which is higher than normal, again thanks to good lubes and a little elbow grease. Note that you will not ever see the 23ftlbs some websites advertise for this gun or the Benj Trail Hardwood. I think they got the power mixed up with the Trail XL which is a magnum. They say 950fps in .22, but 700-750 is more like it using Crosman lead pellets.

In .177 a typical Titan can shoot lead pellets in the 8gr or less range past 1000fps. They vary due to flaws and friction so power can be between 15 and 17ftlbs out of the box, but with tuning and/or break in it can/should reach 18, 19 if you do some tuning work to it.

The trigger is like all the other Crosman break barrels and most people think it needs some work. You can easily fix the trigger for free if you like, info is floating around online. Google “chevota” and “trigger”, or email me at chevota at hotmail. The scopes on most all these guns are virtually the same regardless of the name on them, but most have the wrong parallax setting which causes mysterious accuracy problems and people blame the gun or the scope as a whole. Like most all break barrel guns you should also shim the scope. So after those fixes you can have a really exceptional gun… If you want a gun perfect out of the box then you’ll need to spend a lot more money on something like a Weihrauch or other high quality German gun (not RWS). They’re nice and certainly better guns, but Crosmans are 1/3rd to 1/4th the price. My 5-star rating btw is taking price into consideration. For the money it’s one of if not the best gun you can buy. I bought a referb Benj Titan as well for $99, that is an incredible deal!

I HAVE THE CROSSMAN TITAN GP. IT COCKS EASILY AND SHOOTS HARD. THE SCOPE AND RINGS THAT CAME WITH IT WERE FINE BUT I DID REPLACE WITH BETTER ONES AND GET CONSISTANT SHOTS. THE TRIGGER NEEDS SOME GETTING USED TO BUT AFTER THAT ITS A GREAT SHOOTER

I have three of these in 22 cal. I got mine for $84.00 was one of the best buys I have made in years. These shoot at 725 to 760fps with Crosman pellets 14.3 grains. I have one that will shoot 5 pellets into a �” at 25 yards. It wares a 3×9 scope on it. The centerpoint 4x that it came with was crap however, the other 2 are still working and it just may have been a bad one that I got. The other two rifles will shoot �” 5 shot groups at 25 yards in no wind. The guns are not used for punching paper I used them on pests like tree rats, pigeons, Crows, sage rats, starlings, ferrel cats,racoons, skunks etc. I will kick the crap out of sage and tree rats out to 40 yards. Longest shot on a crow was 35 and I hit it right where I was aiming the head one shot and it was dead. The racoons have to be hit in the head and at 20 yards or less it will dispatch them rather well. Skunks are like ferrel cats a shot to the head despaches them out to 30 yards. I have shot numerous starlings the longest at 54 yards smacked him in the breast and he was stone cold dead. I love these rifles the factory triggers take some getting use to and if you are picky get an after market trigger. One of mine has one and I think you can guess which one that is, yes, the one that shoots nice little �” groups and wears the 3×9 scope.

Purchased at Wally World for $149 in Fishkill ny. Got the rifle home, mounted scope with blue loctite, loctited all the stock screws and put in gun safe till mourning. Next day took rifle to backyard, setup target at 20 yrds. Bought 500 Crosman Premier Hollow Point pellets. First shot, hit 2″ right and 2″ high, adjusted scope to compensate and shot 5 rounds in a nice cloverleaf about the size of a dime. I started shooting at the age of 6 yrs old, I have never had a rifle either powder or air be so easy to sight in right out of the box. When chrono graphed it shooting the Crosman pellets at 722 fps, they weigh 14.3 gr. This is the best $150 dollar air rifle out there , well compaired to mine. Its also very quiet. B.R.

The Crosman Titan was for sale on Airgunsdaily.com for $84.00 remanufactured. Seemed like a super deal so I ordered one. Out of the box the trigger was awful. You could not tell when it would fire. The trigger was replaced with an aftermarket trigger. It works great to reduce the trigger pull but it will never be a Record. A butt pad screw was stripped and I addressed that. I also Locktited the stock screws to help keep every thing tight. I put a Centerpoint 4×16-40 scope on it but could not get it to shoot high enough at 10 meters, my normal shooting distance. Well I only had $110.00 in the gun so I bent the barrel up! Now it shoots to point of aim.

I recrowned the barrel and opened the breech slightly to take a Crosman Premier, they were too tight to put in with your finger. It is true that the rifle needs lots of shots to settle down. Power is excellent with 14.3gn pellets at 710fps. Accuracy is best with RWS pointed pellets. The function of the gun is so smooth. Cocking the gun takes a brisk slap of the barrel but is a pleasure to cock. The firing behavior is excellent too. Short recoil and no vibration. The safety is manual so you don’t keep flipping it off every shot. I know I had to do quite a few things to get this gun in shape but it was worth it. Anyway who wants a gun they can just take out and shoot?
