I got this gun used, but still it should work. The hold gun is made out of plastic and so it wears out quick. The little screw thing at the butt of the gun that pushs the co2 in, was no good and would not load. Look for a gun that has a metal grip… Read Full Review

Crosman C40 looks and feels very realistic when somewhat compared to the average 5" barrel pistol. Nice practice for handling the real thing.. Jams continuously unless I hold the top of the barrel (part that flips up) down into the main part. I plan to take the thing apart and see what I can do to jury rig it. Very fun to shoot when it works as expected. I'm currently looking for the schmatics for it, so I can replace the piece that fell out, that prevents it from operating in single action… Read Full Review

I generally don't like this pistol very much. It is a fairly heavy gun with a really stiff trigger. Takes a decent amount of pull to get it to shoot. With it being that heavy, it makes it pretty hard to shoot fast bursts.
I found the accuracy to be pretty far off also… Read Full Review

I bought two Crosman C40 CO2 Pistols. They function very similarly.
The pistols seem nice (in pictures and in use) - truly beautiful -but in practice, they are far from good or even average quality. My both pistols jam continuously. I have tried six different pellets, but the results have been quite the same: both pistols jam equally (2-5 of 8).
I have three other air pistols (and three air rifles), and I have never faced such jamming problem - never! According to my (over 30 years)… Read Full Review

I have a 9mm Beretta and I wanted to get used with the timing before going in PPC shooting. Neither my single-shot FWB C20 or Crosman 2240 could help me so after reading the reviews on this site, I ordered a C40.
It is a deal at that price. Instead of a the regular plastic clone, I got the tool I needed for the practice I had in mind.
I saw a P99 at my club and believe me, it doesn't even come close to the C40.
The loose grip is a pain in the butt . I think I'm going to carry stripes of… Read Full Review

A speed loader for the Crosman C40 makes for easy control of the cats intentions of my feline pedigree, no but seriously. This replica is fantastic I boast maybe I buy too cheap. Children love at bbq tho.... I LIKE! - Happy New Year to all… Read Full Review

Someone has just given me a matched pair of Crosman C40's and they are fab it looks so real and the trigger is not that stiff. The safety is like the real thing but it doesn't stop anything when there is no co2 in it. Overall it is the best gun you can buy it can shoot 8 shoots in 2 secs (but I got it in 1 sec 30) it is a fab gun and don't worry about anything and the right grip only is lose when there is no co2 in it but if it is still is loose just bend the clips in a bit that are on the… Read Full Review

I have been shooting the Crosman C40 for a month or so now, and this is a great plinker/trainer pistol. Full size and heft of a 1911, so it's great for practice without burning up 45ACP ammo. Sights are fully adjustable, and the gun gets great accuracy in my 15 yard range. The pistol is semi-auto, but the trigger pull is a bit heavy on semi, so I use the hammer between shots. Shoots 7.9gr CPL's at around 400fps. Not enough for hunting of course, but perhaps very light pest work out to 15 yards… Read Full Review

First of all, the Crosman C40 CO2 Pistol is no toy. Its power is incredible for a CO2 pistol with unbelievable accuracy to boot. The sights are fully adjustable, with compensation to adjust elevation and/or windage all at the same time.
The gun is quite heavy, being made entirely out of zinc alloy, except for the grips and levers (safety, mag release). The CO2 mechanism appears to be steel, so I guess that makes a liar out of me. The finish of the gun is like that of brushed aluminum along… Read Full Review

This is the first gas operated pistol I have ever owned. I bought my crosman C40 airpistol two weeks ago and have found it to be a very stimulating high power shooting substitute for the back yard, as the young and old will testify at BBQ gatherings at my place.
The accuracy I have found to be very good at 10 metres for the first three mags. (In My Opinion) What more to say except, "GREAT PISTOL" and Not a Toy.
Well the Crosman C40 claims to be styled after one of the worlds most popular… Read Full Review

The Crosman C40 is a clunky, heavy American product (the norm), but it is well constructed and very fun to shoot. It really packs a wallop for a pellet gun.
I saw all the review on the loose right grip. I bought this (and a Walther CP 99) a week ago after reading all these reviews (helpful, thanks). Right grip notwithstanding, it was a great choice, especially for $105 US. Yes the grip is loose, but it is meant to be, unless a CO2 is installed. With the CO2 bottle in place, it is tight… Read Full Review

I bought a cb40 around 2 years ago just for the use of plinking. It was great. My first airgun looked like a real pistol, had the weight of a real pistol but the shooting accuracy was pants. I have been shooting rimfire rifles pistols since I was five, so I obviously knew that an airgun wouldn't match the accuracy of "real guns". I have lately come to realise that my inaccuracy was down to the pellets, and since I got some crossman accupell, I can shoot 10p's at 20yards...consistently.

Just got the Crosman C40 2 days ago and already went through 500 pellets with it. I call it a weapon because with a new CO2 cartridge at 435 fps or better, this baby is NOT a toy. I like the adjustable sights which seem to stay very accurate and I appreciate the power/accuracy of the weapon. This is single and double action and even the double action firing is easy and smooth. Not too hard or jumpy.
The loose right grip that everyone is complaining about caused me about 15 mins of… Read Full Review

R/H grip. Just got this gun and the R/Hand grip is rubbish, sat down and before I had shot a slug came up with a very good fix.
1 find a magnet, thin magnet
2 FRIDGE MAGNET (yes nice and thin and got them all over the fridge)
3 Place magnet into grip and fix in place with sticky back pad ( dont use glue incase of return under warranty clame.)
4 works brill as magnet will stick to CO2 leaver
