**Please note that my Crosman 1008 was purchased in 1996, and some changes may have been introduced since then**
The Crosman 1008 is an 8-shot revolver, with the clip-cylinder concealed within the body of an "automatic". The clip is indexed either by pulling the trigger through a long double-action pull, or by cocking the hammer at the rear of the slide. If cocked, the trigger pull effort is reduced, but the overall distance pulled is the same either way.
Because the trigger can and... (read more)

For the money it works,while it is on the low end of the air gun field it works fairly good without any frills,it is not the type of gun you would hand down to your heirs,it has a very short useful life but for the money it's a bargain and cheap to replace if it breaks. (read more)

This gun is just the average. This gun is very nice. It has great power and great style. It's not very good in the loading part. As one comenter said 'You have to re load it every eight shots' thats the not so good thing on this gun. Better to but a V-3 Gamo instead! (read more)

My brother gave me one of these air pistols, it had a silver finish unlike the one shown in the picture.
I found it to be difficult to fire using the built in sight, but when fired by feel "pointing relaxing and firing without looking down the sight" I found it possible to hit pop cans at about 30 meters consistently.
It has broken down a couple of times over the years, the first time it was simply jammed and I had to re seat the components using a pdf schematic from the... (read more)

I got the Crosman 1008 Repeater for christmas 2005 in black.
I only found it accurate with the Crosman Flat heads at ten meters,
It's not that powerful but it's an airpistol so they aren't that strong anyway.
But it is nice as a first airgun.
Since then i've upgraded to the Gamo Shadow 1000 with the BSA 2-7x32 scope and belive me that's power and accuracy for ya. (read more)

I was really disappointed in this Crossman 1008 Repeater gun and am returning it in the morning. I have several other pellet and bb guns that I enjoy shooting.

I'm shocked to see how all the reviews on this site seem to mention problems with the Crossman 1008 Repeater jamming, breaking etc. It leaves me to wonder if these reviewers are all people who have no other experience with guns or what. I've been shooting my entire life and I can say this pistol is a fine piece of equipment. I've had a 1008 for 5 years, have shot it a million times, and have never had a jam or any other problem for that matter. This gun is very powerful and as far as... (read more)

I got a Crossman 1008 Repeater a few weeks ago second hand. First look, it did look a bit flimsy as it is completely plastic.
I filled the 3 clips it came included with pointed .177 as I read on this site they were the best to use. At first, nearly every pellet jammed. I soon realised that this was only because the pellets are not easy to load into the clip. I sorted this by after loading each pellet to just push it in a wee bit with a cocktail stick. You must first make sure that you have a... (read more)

I brought one of the Crossman 1008 Repeater about a year ago, for £60 witch is quit a good price. I used it for 10 yard target and shoot the can I found that it was ok for this but was lacking in power and accuracy. I found that it kept jamming, I tried to over come this by trying a range of different pellets and I found webly harries to be the best. But it did still jam but not as much as it did using other pellets
When shooting it you can feel the co2 compartment cover moving, and the... (read more)

Not bad, but again the Crossman 1008 Repeater is just a toy.
Pellets jammed on me, had problems with this pistol, sent it back and got a refund and swapped for the Walther cp99.
Aviod if possible, but perhaps you will have a better experiance than I did.

For 10 meter target practice, and when temps are above 60 degrees, you can have some fun with this Crosman 1008 CO2 .177 cal repeater pistol. I play "shoot the can" with the kids. We keep popping a tin can until the 8 shot clip is empty. Who ever knocks the can the farthest wins. Not more than 1 second is allowed between shots, keeping the shooter tracing the can's movement while firing repeatedly. Lots of fun... This gun is ideal for this type of shooting and what you should try with a... (read more)

I bought my Crossman 1008 repeater for £80, not bad price I thought. But when I got home to use it for the first time, I had trouble with the Pellet chamber/rotating magazine. The gun would only fire one pellet at a time. The magazine would not turn after each shot. Terribly disappointed!
Things got worst when I took it to local gunsmiths for repairs. No-one would touch it, they all said the same thing. Once you open the 1008, you'll never get it back together, too many springs inside.

I got my Crossman 1008 Repeater from Canadian Tire, and it looked cool and shiny. I went hunting pigeons in the grain bins, and when I went in there, they were flying everywhere, so I shot 8 rapid fire rounds into the air, and about 5 pigeons to the ground. It is a cool gun. (read more)

I acquired my Crossman Model 1008 repeater while my Grandfather was suffering from the middle stages of Alzheimer's, and we judged it too dangerous to take him to the firing range. To replace our almost weekly shooting sessions, I purchased this air gun. When I first removed it from the box, I was moderately disappointed by its weight, or lack thereof, but otherwise the fit and finish was quite good for a molded-plastic design. When I attempted to mount the included red-dot reflex sight,... (read more)

Not wanting to be disappointed with my purchase, I bought this pistol with median expectations.

The Crossman 1008 Repeater was a Christmas present, I immediately tried it out on a 7up can. It worked pretty well with the premium co2 that came along with it. But after 25 shots it ran out of gas. It still works pretty well but over a year the sights got busted by my little brother. oh, and if you want to go vermin hunting with this gun, it can only kill small animals. (read more)

I too bought my crosman 1008 at the local WalMart. It came with a few accessories like pellets, shooting glasses, a red dot sight, and a plastic trigger block. I appreciated Crosman's effort to provide a trigger block even though a strong kid could likely pry it off with a little effort.
OK, I didn't expect much for under $50 USD and that seems to have set the tone for my expectations as well. Out of the box the sights needed adjustment but once done, I found a 1 inch 4 shot group at... (read more)

I purchased the Crosman 1008 as my first air pistol, my experience so far has been ho-hum I find the first shot with a new CO2 its prob your best and hardest shot and I wish they were all like that but I found the trigger to be the hardest to adjust to sometimes hard to pull.

The Crosman 1008 is a decent, entry-level airgun. It is suitable for teaching children the basics of firearms, and for the most informal of plinking. It is not exceptionally accurate, but it does have decent power. Naturally, power comes at the cost of Co2 usage, so it doesn't get as many shots as some other guns. It is made almost completely of plastic. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but some people like the feel of a heavy gun in their hands. The clip system is fairly ordinary,... (read more)

Crossman 1008 Repeater: I thought it would be cool to a have 10 shot reloadable pistol that fires at 430 fps. I don't believe my gun even reaches 300 fps. Even though the gun has a rifled barrel, the gun is very inaccurate and you are lucky to hit a 4" bull at 10m. I have always had several Crosman products since I was a child but I am totally put off by this model. By the way, it's to light to be a proper paper weight. (read more)

The Crossman 1008 Repeater is by far the worst gun I have ever picked up in my entire life. I bought this wonderful piece of garbage at WalMart a while back, (I'd prefer not to remember when) looking for some cheap fun. I came home, loaded it up, and shot at a tree in the distance. The first couple shots made me feel like I was launching a ballistic missile with half the earth on top of it, and after that it was anybody's guess how hard the next shot would be. In one clip with this thing,... (read more)

I own a Crosman 1008SB for target practice and going after small game. The open sights are average, and the red-dot if you get a kit with it is useless. I highly recommend buying the trigger-mount laser. Having the laser down there makes the gun much easier to sight in, and you can adjust your open sights to match it. For target shooting the heavy trigger pull is a drag but with SA available that problem is solved on the target range, unless you're going for speed.
CO2 lasts about 50 shots... (read more)

I'v had this Crossman 1008 Repeater for about 7 months now and I can honestly say its a piece of junk. I bought it at my local Canadian Tire for $100. After about 6 months I started to notice that the pistol was leaking co2. Also it uses to much co2. I only get like 50-60 shots with one tank. The accuracy is not to good. For the money you pay you're not getting a whole lot. I recommend you spend an extra $50 and get the Walter CP Sport instead. (read more)

This gun is shoots around 420 fps in the first 5-10 shots. Every shot decreases the power. It won't even shoot through plastic cleaning bottles.It will kill birds and chipmunks though. I would recomend buying laser or dot sight because plastic sights suck. If you want an average gun, get it. Do Not Buy if you want a metal, high quality gun or a gun that doesn't shoot on co2 or if you want a real powerful pistol.This is not a high quality gun. (read more)

I recently bought my crossman 1008 repeater from wal mart the other night. The reason i bought this is so i could shoot at targets and other things.
