Want to learn how to use a sniper rifle? Start with this one. Need something for pest control, keep going.
Very loud for a pellet gun. Especially when firing it empty. Good to scare away unwanted birds... or annoying children. (read more)

I would recommend this pellet rifle to anyone. i have had it for a few years and it still works great. Oh yea i really like that the stock is wood and it isnt as heavy as other pellet guns. And this rifle was not made in china. This rifle is very reliable for target shooting and also hunting small game. (read more)

The Crosman RM277 rifle was very accurate right out of the box, no need to adjust sights. Very easy to cock and shoot, don't care for the automatic safety, could do with out this. Can see where this would be a hassle in a hunting situation. Price was great picked it up at the Bargain Cave at Cabelas. Tried several different pellet types and it did well with all. (read more)

Honestly, I wouldn't have bought the Crosman RM277 if I had seen the " made in Mexico" in very tiny letters on the box.
Had I paid the full suggested retail price I certainly would have returned it.
However I paid a clearance price of only $59.99, so that is a smok'n deal for anything w/825 fps.
If you are looking at this gun as an inexpensive & effecient tool for killing unwanted pests, or running off intrusive moose at long distances, this gun is perfect.
If you want a showpiece to hang on... (read more)

I've had the Crosman RM277 rifle since last Christmas, It is a great gun still, used it to knock out tree rats and pigeons. Great for chipmunks, Great hunting air rifle Compared to the Winchester 1000X its great. I have at least 4 airguns over the years and this is second to the best. The best is my Gamo Hunter 220.

The Crosman RM277 is my first springer. I've plinked with a crosman 760 for years and what a difference with this RM277! Right out of the box the sights are right on. At 25 yards I grouped five shots within a 2 inch circle while standing without a rest. Groundhogs...watch out! The weight feels just like you're hoisting a .30-06 and the kick is negligible because of the weight. The full sized stock is beautiful and I wouldn't mind having it on a regular rifle. (read more)

This is my FIRST springer. I looked real hard at a $300 Webley Stingray, but I was unsure. So, I bought this simply to 'try' the genre and make SURE I liked the airgun 'thing'. I do. I was lucky enough to get this one delivered to my door at just one-third of the Brit-blaster's tariff.
Besides the gun's break-in, there's also MY break-in in working the 33lb. effort break-barrel. It does seem to be a fast learning curve, however. I actually like the two-stage trigger so universally decried by...(read more)

I purchased an RM422 from Le Baron which is a great gun. It's powerful and great for getting rid of raccoons and other pests. It's the best pellet gun i've ever had. I would say that all the RM series are good. I killed a rabbit with from 75 yards or more. I accessorized it (If thats even a word) with a .22 scope and now i can pin-point whereever i want to hit. I think the RM277 is a newer version in the RM series as with the RM577. (read more)

This air rifle is very much worth the money. The wood stock surpasses that of my 410 and .22. Its deadly accurate (when sited in properly) to the point where i lop off the heads of flowers at the stem from a good distance. However, my barrel started to rust, and oil was needed. The trigger takes a good 15 lbs to pull, which takes out accuracy in some situtations (when your target is about to move) and i expect much better for the cost of this rifle. I also have the RM 577 which is worth the... (read more)

Purchased RM277 (RM377) from Walmart
Noticed very wide spread impacts on
standard target at 25 yards. Was very careful and after much practice decided that the rifle could be the problem and returned for exchange
Second Rifle: Installed scope with no adjustment into rifle right out of box. Immediatly noticed impact grouping with'in 2 inches. Had scope aligned with'in 30 minutes. Now very impressed with rifle. No problem now hitting cans using holdover at 25, 30, 40, 50, and 75... (read more)

I'm in the military, and for years I've always tried to impress upon my soldiers if they wanted to improve there shooting, buy a good air gun and practice. I often tell them well-spent time shooting on your own, will pay big on the next qualification range. I've been shooting air guns for years; and I own several European models in both .177 and .22 cal. I'm big on power, and accuracy. Last April 2002 I purchased a RM277 I removed the front hooded sight post, and placed a BSA 4X32 scope... (read more)

This gun is impressive out of the box. This thing is nice and heavy and has good balance. I am now on my second one in two weeks. The first broke within a week the second has problems with the barrel alignment. When I mounted the scope the first shot was about 8" low @ 25' low and no scope I have tried can be adjusted to zero the shots. Grouping is better on the second with .25" groups from 25' Walmart has a policy of not alowing returns of "firearms" I argued the point but they insisted a... (read more)

I've shot a lot of airguns and I own a Beeman R7 and an R9, and this inexpensive Mendoza impresses the hell out of me!
It's out of the box accuracy rivals my R9 and it hits harder than the R7. It's overall level of quality is quite good. While not outshinning the German made guns lets not forget it costs over a hundred dollars less than any German rifles. Gorgeous wood stock, great open sights, accurate and hard hitting for about a hundred bucks. I hope Crosman sells a million of these... (read more)

Was looking at the CZ Slavia 631 air rifle, when I saw this one at Cabelas, it was the combo with 4 power scope, right out of the box I was shooting a small oil filter at about 75 feet, although the pellet didn't pierce the filter it did put a dime sized dent in it, overall seems to be a nice rifle, it's 852 fps was well over the 552 fps of the CZ.

All together good air gun. Just take the spring out of the trigger group after you pull 1 e-clip and the pin out of the trigger, slide the trigger out and dump the spring. Reassemble. CAUTION: trigger breaks at 6 ounces or so. Experienced shooters and gun tinkers should be the only ones to attempt this modification. I believe I did lose some velocity with this modification. Probably sitting on 750 FPS. Took a lot of noise out of the firing too. (read more)

For the money, this Crosman RM277 is the most beautiful gun I have seen. The wood grain in the stock looks like it belongs on a $400 Deer Rifle. This was the main reason I purchased the RM377 (I think this is the same as the RM277, except it is sold at Discount Stores such as Wal-Mart.)
This gun has a plastic piece at the butt end of the spring cylinder. During the first day of shooting, after about 75 rounds, I noticed that this plastic piece was cracked and fractured in three places. I... (read more)

I have the Crosman/Mendoza RM377 it seems to be the same rifle as the RM277. I find that this is a great deal on an air rifle. For less than $100 I have an Air rifle that shoots 1/2 inch groups at 25 yards. It is a winner in my book. (read more)

The Crsman RM277 is a comfortable rifle, though for me the handle could have been a little thinner. With a decent scope, it is pretty accurate, the only problem being the trigger which is fairly stiff and can throw off your aim. I am trying to find ways to adjust it, but so far I haven't.
Shooting at a standard 3/4 inch pine board at 20-25 yards, this gun will easily shoot 2/3 through it, if not more. If you can hold it steady through the trigger pull at 20 yards, it can easily hit... (read more)
