“Great fun.”

Written on: 20/09/2012 by lobo338 (1 review written)

I have thought about getting a break barrel pellet gun for a long time. A few weeks ago I was in a local pawn shop looking for deals, and I saw a Crosman Storm XT, and decided to take a look. It was in great condition, and I decided I'd give it a shot. I got them down to $35.00 and took it home. I started out by checking the scope mounts, and they were a little lose, after tightening them up I grabbed some old pellets I had at the house and tried it out. To my surprise it shot very good… Read Full Review

“Awsome gun I recomend it”

Written on: 06/05/2012 by Jasenstewart (1 review written)

I've purchased airguns that cost upwards of 200 to $300 dollars that didn't live up to its price or aparent quality. But the Crosman Storm XT by far surpasses all of them. The barrel is a break barrel that is riffled for outstanding acuracy the scope was my problem I got a different scope (Multi adjustable varidable zoom scope). My favorite thing about this rifle without a doubt is that this airgun shoots pellets at a screaming 1000 FPS. It's a good gun for pest control and plinking I've killed… Read Full Review

“unpredictable air rifle”

Written on: 29/12/2011 by PJSnCLR (1 review written)

for the most part i have liked my xt better than dislike. when i first got it i had lots of fun shooting. It seemed that the scope was already zeroed in. almost every thing i aimed at i hit. if i could put it in my crosshairs then i could hit it(mostly squirrels). That was until i started using alloy (light weight)pellets. It seemed like my gun was uncomfortably louder than i wanted it to be, also it seemed like my accuracy was off. I also noticed the damage of the lighter pellet as opposed to… Read Full Review

You shouldn't use the alloy pellets, they're virtually useless for most everything but seeing how fast your gun can shoot. That extra noise is the pellet going super sonic and that combined with its light weight will kill accuracy. It's also not good for the gun because the piston slams the breach harder. Try 8.4gr JSB or similar high quality pellets in the mid weight range. As for the barrel catch you should try some grease on it to help it engage, hopefully that will fix it but sometimes they just don't fit quite right and need a little grinding or maybe just a little sanding and polishing to get the right fit.

“Not bad for your dollar...”

Written on: 18/10/2011

Just like most of the other reviews you will read this is a well built gun that shoots great with the right pellet. I myself did not like the scope that came with it cause it was constantly losing center point.So I bought another Center Point scope and i am hitting anything that moves. I suggest using Crosman Premier Hollow Point pellets with this gun for real good accuracy no matter if your target practicing or hunting. Dont be a fool and listen to all the hype about those light pellets that… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/02/2011

I hate the storm xt the scope is horriable it is a little slow but it is accurate but in my opinion a RWS air rife is better than the crosman storm xt.Heck i would say that any other air rife would be better than the crosman storm xt.Well it least the scope would be better on those other brands than the storm xt.Also the .177 caliber is a bite small and slow for a .177 caliber i mean a 22 caliber goes just as fast and hits harder. It doesn't preform good in the feild… Read Full Review

Sounds like your parallax is off on the scope, adj the front lens to match your shooting distance and it will be much better. You might also want to shim the scope to match the guns barrel so they're parallel. As for power I'd look at the breach seal for sealing and the piston seal for damage. The breach is not very flat and with the stiff seal it has a hard time sealing, especially if the barrel catch is not engaging perfectly which makes the pressure on the seal weaker. I smoothed my breach with a "Ruby Stone Nail File" google it, it's a great tool for filing hard steel or just about anything else. If your piston seal was damaged during factory install and causing lost pressure, you can get a new one from Crosman for $1.15, same with the breach seal. A new main spring might not hurt just in case, they're ~$5, just be sure you get the full powered one from a gun like the Optimus. Once everything is right it should perform really well and they can hit 1000fps with an 8gr pellet.

Written on: 14/02/2011

Bought this gun at Walmart and it seems like a pretty good gun. The scope has to be tightened every few shots, which is easy to do, (all you do is tighten the screws with your fingers) because the power of the gun causes it to come loose often. This is really not a big deal at all. It is a very powerful gun, and I love the hardwood body. This gun is a very good quality gun and could be compared to the Gamo Big Cat, which I am going to get soon. Overall I would give the Crosman Storm xt four and… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/01/2011

Just bought the 1000xt today from Walmart for 109$. I purchased it to keep the buzzards and such from getting into my trash here in SWFL. First shot out the package scared me a little because it is just as powerful as a real gun of the .22 .25 caliber range. Accuracy is dead on, the rifle itself is clearly well built and sturdy. Only downside is cocking, takes a little backbone and firing is surprisingly loud for a pellet gun. That just lets you know its no joke and it can be very dangerous!… Read Full Review

This gun is a blast i purchased it when it first came out for the price of around 200$ its ripe not but its becoming harder to find it, this thing is not your old fashion pump BB gun, first of all it uses pellets .177 cal and any type including arrow and hammer heads so it can be set for all kinds of ways to kill, this gun can be dangerous if you shot some one! It will hit just about as hard as a real gun just a small caliber. So its not a toy, it can kill all small game, I love city rats my… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/07/2010 by gottairifle (1 review written)

I am very impressed with this, considering I got it last month on a close-out price of $54.. No kidding. The "New" exact same gun was in the blister pack for the reg sale price of approx $129 . I should have bought the last 3, but I only need one.
As far as the way it shoots, its great. The plastic wheels on the rear site adjustment are moved easily, if you slide it in and out of a soft gun case, expect to re adjust site. My elevation adjustment clicks, kinda..but the other one, is smooth… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/04/2010

I purchased the Crosman Storm XT about a month ago from Walmart. I have shot a few hundred rounds through it. I found so far accuracy and dependability the Crosman Premier hollow points are just fine. I spent much more on Gamo ones with small bb's in the front and the only difference I saw was lost velocity. Maybe it would smack a little harder due to the metal, but at the distances this gun is designed for the Gamo's were much more expensive. What would be gained I don't know.

Written on: 05/04/2010

My first review, this gun is a great value and I'm very pleased. Well built, nice wood stock, good scope, and very accurate. It takes several rounds to sight it in but after a dozen shots I had a nice tight group at 35 - 40 yards. I like using Premier hollow points and couldn't believe the power this gun has, 1200fps. I took a vegtable can, corn, and easily shot through the bottom of the can from 35yards. Than doubled the metal, taped the lid to the bottom and again my next round went through… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/03/2010

Normally I don't write reviews. Bought this gun about a week ago and have shot 300 or so pellets through it. very impressive. Sighted the iron sights in and then the scope. Read where some have had problems with the scope, but it has worked very well. Put it on the gun and tightened it over and over until it was good and tight. Stepped off 20 yards and shot a hole in a bucket and then shot two more pellets through the same hole. Now if that is not close enough then I don't know what is. Tried… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/02/2010

I bought the Storm XT a few weeks ago and I can honestly say it's the best hundred bucks I've ever spent. The scope rings and iron sights aren't great and the trigger is a little spongy, but for $100 the overall quality and value for money is outstanding.

Right out of the box the accuracy isn't fantastic, but bear in mind that this is a spring piston gun which means it'll take around 500 shots to break in and can't be shot like a centerfire rifle. At first I was getting about 5" groups at 35… Read Full Review
