This gun is very accurate. However, it is heavy. It is hard to pump. When pumping you have to be carefull not to pinch your palm. The lever you have to pull back to feed a bb into the magazine ia very stiff. The bb's are very hard to get into the magazine. I like the gun, but it is too hard for my wife to use. (read more)

The Crossman gun is amazingly accurate, I shoot rats at night off of a birdfeeder and this gun can hit them and they don't even fall off sometimes. It is powerful and pumping loosens up after some use, I have had mine for over 7 years. (read more)

I have had my Crosman 2100 Classic for over 10 years YES 10 YEARS!! and it still shoots as if it were brand new. Still very powerful and accurate. Plus you have the option to put a scope on it for further accuracy. It will hold 200 BB's in the pistol grip and 18 in the magazine. How can you go wrong? If youre looking for a great air rifle and dont want to spend hundreds of dollars, the Crosman 2100 classic is the way to go. (read more)

This air rifle was once considered to be among the best of Crosman's line up back in the day (early 90's). It must be because of the power this pneumatic gun packs (755fps BB / 725fps pellet). Back in high school a good friend of mine got this rifle as a gift from his parents (lovely!). I was so envious (I had the Crosman Backpacker at the time). My friend let me try out his Classic 2100b and without a scope I shot a small bird in the head from about 7-10 yard and the bird's head split... (read more)

I bought the 2100 Classic about two weeks ago,i had to order it from the states because i couldn't find anywhere in the UK that still sells them everybody has gone co2 crazy. The reason why i got it was because i had one as a kid and wanted to introduce my son to shooting and i remembered the fun i used to have shooting one of these guns,it was called the 766 Classic back then, but initially the same gun. These guns are quite accurate even with open sights,which is what i'm using at the... (read more)

Crosman 2100 Classic - Precision made and assembled. All of the screws holding it together are properly aligned and tightened to specifications. All of the parts fit together perfectly and the tolerances between the parts are exact. There are no scatches, marks or other imperfections on this air rifle.
The 2100 is a 10 pump cocking air rifle, but you only have to pump it 4 to 5 times for target practice at 20, 30 and even 40 yards. I really like it because the trigger mechanism is... (read more)

I'm comparing this Crosman 2100b to the Daisy 880 in order to give perspective on the differences between the two.
I knew that this pump air rifle was ranked as more powerful than the Daisy 880, the most recent pump air rifle I bought just for fun.
But the Crosman 2100 is half again the power of my Daisy 880. The Pellets embed much deeper in particle board than the 880, just short of twice as deep.
It's also pretty accurate at 10 meters, I get half-inch groups with the sights and quarter... (read more)

The Crossman 4032 (4X32 scope with mounts) for around 22 to 30 bucks at Wal-Mart is very nice. Best 4x scope around for the money. Not sure how well it would hold up on a springer, as for the 2100B, no problems. I used to use a 4x15 Tasco on my old 766.
I use 5 pumps for indoor target practice at 10-12 yards using 1 inch diameter targets. Most of the time I can hit 19/20 and 3 to 5 of those dead center. I dial my scope down 1 click or 1/4 inch/100 yard and shoot 10 pumps for hunting.... (read more)

I was considering buying a much more expensive spring piston type air gun for plinking with my son and for pest elimination, but while I was browsing I noticed Crosman still makes the 2100b. My dad has one of these he bought in about 1984. I burrowed it the other day for a little I didn't even need to resight it. Mine is on the way! I'm considering buying a second for when my son graduates from his Crosman 760. Shoot good pellets in these, keep them oiled with Crosman Pellgun Oil, and... (read more)

I've owned my Crosman 2100 Classic since 1991 and I'm happy to say it still works great to this day. It has been well cared for all these years but it has been shot inumerable times.I know why this rifle is still manufactured today!It's accurate(with pellets)out to 40 or 50 feet,is adult sized, has a decent trigger and good power, what more can you ask for roughly 50 bones.

I wanted a BB repeater for plinking. I already have enough pellet rifles, but 3 times out of four, the BB's roll out of the end of the barrel before I can pull the trigger.
I ordered the Crosman as a 2100B, but the rifle is stamped 2100.
Totally useless as a BB gun.
I wrote to both the company I purchased it from as well as Crosman, explaining the problem. That was over a week ago, and I have not had a reply from either. Into the attic it goes. (read more)

Crosman 2100b: I was looking for a fairly inexpensive combination BB and pellet gun. After reading the four other reviews I felt this was the best gun for the money for me. Boy, am I pleased with it! It was $55.00 at Walmart. Right out of the box it was sighted perfectly. At 8 to 10 pumps and 50 to 60' I dead centered a Coke can every time. At the same distance, I tried BB's on a tougher Campbell soup can. The BB's went cleanly through the first side and severly dented the backside. With... (read more)

The 2100 was my first BB gun @ 12 years old. I'm 32 now and I can't believe this rifle is still being sold. Also happy to see its still the most powerful one around.
Adjusted the sites today. Started w/ BB's using 10-pumps. Found that I could watch BB's "arc" just like a spinning golf balls. So switched to pellets at 8-10 pumps and WOOOWWW! Great accuracy. I couldn't believe how well I got it locked in.
(Now I understand why I missed all the pigeons and rabbits as a kid, I only used BB's... (read more)

The Crossman 2100b is the same as the Crossman Classic 2100. The Crossman website slurs their usage of the terms and while my new box says 2100B on it the gun itself bears the title "Classic 2100" on the steel receiver.
I just bought it and after about a hundred bb s and a dozen pellets I am satisfied with its power and accuracy. I bought it as a replacement for my old Daisy 880 Bb gun which is wearing out after 12 years and many thousands of shots. I use my Benjamin 392 for pellet shooting... (read more)

I now own my second Crosman 2100. A friend accidentally kicked my old one and snapped it in half. That is why I wish the stock was not plastic. That is the only problem I can think of about this gun. It is a very accurate and powerful air rifle. I prefer pump rifles to spring and this is the best pump I have ever shot. I will agree that BBs are only really accurate until 4 or 5 pumps. Pellets however remain accurate at higher velocities. So far I have only hunted with BBs and have still... (read more)

I had the Crosman 2100b for about 8 months and shot around 8,000 rounds through it. First impression of the gun was very accurate and pretty powerful and a good steady feel when aiming. It blasts through cans and after that about a quarter of an inch through my one inch piece of plywood about 30ft. away. It is very accurate I shot a pigeon about 40yrds away and died instantly with 7.9gr crosman domed pellets. The two pellets that work best in this rifle are 7.9gr crosman domed and the... (read more)
