For the money you can not get a better air pistol then this. The big advantage to this pistol is it was pretty well engineered to begin with, and is mostly made of steel where it counts. So it will take most power mods without falling apart. There is a huge after market parts industry so you can mod it almost any way you want. It is advertised as 460 FPS but with some mods, which you might find yourself wanting to do, you can get closer to 600 FPS.

You can add a new piston and valve for more power, change the trigger (the trigger is good enough for a $60 gun but since you can change it for something better, like a P-rod trigger, a lot of people do). You can mod it with a steel breech to mount a scope or red dot sight and usually hit what you are aiming at under 30 yards. You can add a wood pump arm and grips, change out most of the plastic parts for metal ones, and it is simple enough you can fix it yourself (and you can easily get the parts to do it – Crosman has very good customer service and the parts are dirt cheap). This is more then you can do with its competitor, the Benjamin HB 22, which is almost twice the price, has wooden furniture but a brass barrel not a steel one like the 13xx, and no aftermarket parts industry.

If you don’t want to mod it, it makes a real good tackle box gun and just all around fun gun for plinking. This gun will grow on you – it is the ugly duckling of the airgun world but easily and cheaply modded into a “swan”!

I bought this for my mom, to kill squirrels that eat her flowers. I also got the stock crosman makes for it. I had a hard time turning it over to her, I loved it so much! This thing has adequate power and is a total tack driver. After mounting the stock and reversing the sight to use the peep sight, I was punching 1/2 inch groups at 25 yards within a half hour of receiving it, with cheap pellets. I wish it came with the steel breach installed, and the sight is a little delicate, but it works. I will get one for myself soon, and spend years tricking it out. Great out of the box, and it looks like a great project gun, from the blogs. I particularly recommend the stock, as the gun is accurate enough to warrant it, and the resulting carbine is still compact enough for backpacking. With a steel breach and better sights, and maybe a few tools and spare parts, this is the perfect foraging gun for small game.

Side note- I used to have the same setup in .177- gun with stock- Also a great gun with plenty of power and stellar accuracy. I lived in a very mousy house and with bb’s and 3 pumps I could hunt mice all night long, with no danger of hurting the house. In 4 years, I never missed a mouse with it.

The 1377 is a great gun, it is a tack driver. My gun seems to love 7.9 crosman destroyers, i just added grips by ralph brown at rb grips and let me say it adds eye appeal. I loved teh gun so much I order the new 1322. The 1377 has been very effective on some starlings. This gun will put it in teh ten zone all day. For what you get for the price You cant go wrong, so what if teh factory grips are a little less then desirable. It is a production gun, and with that said some grreat grips from Ralph a good scope and teh gun will prodcue for you as well, weather it be plinking, paper puching the ten zone or even starling hunting it will prove its self over and over.make sure you prewash and dry all of your pellets, you will be suprprised of all the little lead particles that come off the pellets and all that little if not wahed off will effect your accuracy over time causing the gun to get dirty faster. All in all great gun my 1377 has 495mt dove tail scope mounts, a crosman 4×15 power scope, and as of today RB grips. It is worth it all, so what if the hobby is expensive at times, Its your hobby live it up.

Where on Earth can you get consistent 550 FPS from a pistol for less than 60 bucks? It’s unheard of. It’s quite accurate at ten meters and very reliable. Multi-pump pneumatics are a little tiring but it does get the job done. All in all, it is well worth the couple of dollars to buy one.

Good: Accurate, easy to pump in comparison to others, decent power.

Bad: Almost all plastic. Sights are guaranteed to knock out of whack at one point or another.

Overall: Cheaper than the Benjamin variation, but doesn’t have the panache or wood construction, but still holds it own.
