I received my 766 american classic on christmas day 1977 and I took that gun out with me every day for several years. It was accurate and deadly on small game and birds. I cut my teeth on that gun and learned to hunt and shoot with it and carry that tradition on to this very day. I now hunt deer/turkey/upland game/small game and varmints with various weapons, but will always have fond memories of that Crossman 766. It was always reliable and never had a problem with it until I wore the seal out… Read Full Review

I received a Crosman 766(.177) in 1979 for my 9th Birthday, it accounted for numerous sparrows, I then mounted a 4x Weaver on it and tackled ducks(head shots). The best pellet through it were Marksman Wadcutters, I eventually wore the rifle out by the time I was 13, it was the rifle that tought me how to shoot, something that came in handy later on in life on the two way range. Great Rifle, I own numerous rifles and have fired many but will always hold the Crosman in high regard, only bad point… Read Full Review

Very hard to assemble once taken apart. No instructions as to how to put the rifle back together. I will have to take a simple product to a repairman. Other guns I have had success in break down and assembly. I also had experienced jaming of BB's and getting them to load into chamber. This is a 1975 - 1978 model… Read Full Review

Inherited from my uncle, this 1976 air rifle, with a little oil and TLC shoots like a champ. With a little 4x target scope, gets quarter sized 5 shot groupings at 20 yards with regularity. Easy to pump, I use 6-8 for target shooting, wadcutter diabolo pellets are very accurate. Less accurate with BBs (I presume because the barrel rifling has less effect and they are lighter), but still acceptable groupings, if less accurate to center.
What a find!! Lot's '0 fun!… Read Full Review

My 2 older brothers purchased a Crosman 766 American Classic and gave it to me for a Christmas present back in the early 80s. My friend had the Crossman 760 and I now had the Crossman 766 American Classic and there was no comparison on which was better and more accurate. It was so accurate that I could hit sparrows in the trees at 75yrds with ease and my only sight adjustment was that I had to line the target on the right side and down about 1/16th and I would hit the sparrows every time. The… Read Full Review

What a superb little gun. Single shot on pellets, or magazine-feed on BBs.O.k. the furniture is plastic and not super-grained de luxe walnut, but a plastic stock and fore-end are light weight, which means fast handling and target acquisition, and no fatigue. The hollow stock also serves as a magazine for several hundred BBs, feeding them straight into the receiver.
A pneumatic that doesn't need CO2 cartridges, stirrup pumps, or bottles of compressed air- just pump the fore-end and you're ready… Read Full Review

I had one of these back in the '70s and it was my only airgun for awhile (I'm now up to nearly 50 airguns).
I scoped mine and is was death on rabbits and squirrels, killed a truckload of small game with it, to include big bullfrogs as well as two crows one morning at what I thought was a nearly impossible distance (a good 50-70 yds, I just held high and dropped them with silver-jet pellets).
I didn't have a chronograph back then, but felt that it was doing well over 700 fps. Loved the old… Read Full Review

The Crosman 766 American Classic is very powerful and very very powerful with a Taco 4x20 scope. It has a slow rate of fire but it's a great gun. I've had one for over 3 year and i think it's excellent… Read Full Review

I've had this since early 70's when I was 13 and was shooting it recently with my 8-year old son until a seal finally went out (30 years later). Noticed the new 2100 model looks like the same gun, so might have to buy a new one for my boy. Will see how easy it is to fix the seal first though... Great gun… Read Full Review

Mounted a Tasco 4x15 scope and it was a killer for small pests like rats, crows and other small pests with a good shot. I wouldn't recommend for squirrels and rabbits etc...only about 8-9 ft/lbs at best… Read Full Review

Well i saw it use for 30$ and i got it. Well i did kill a raccoon with it at 10 yards, but i have not made any other kills with it. I put a 3-9x40mm on it but the thing still shoots high at 30 yards and i shot a rat target at 65 yards on a rest and it did a little better. It all right but i would get a 2200… Read Full Review
