This could have been a really all time great gun if Crossman had just taken a little more time and care in the design and finish.
Ive had 2 of these because when the first one packed up I was still on a high from the great fun and performance of this powerful, accurate Co2 semi auto.
From new it was great, fast powerful, and pretty accurate FOR A SMOOTH BORE barrelled gun (I believe the US version is rifled but not in the UK for legal reasons)
There are some serious Issues with this gun… Read Full Review

Great fun while it lasted. Sadly, reading the other reviews, it looks like mine failed quicker than anyone else's so far. Crosman's been building these for a while now and it doesn't look like they've got any sort of handle on improving quality.
175 shots into the OEM CO2 cylinder that came with the rifle, something gave way internal to the mechanism and the rest of the CO2 spewed out, frosting the outside of the stock. It was kind of cool to watch the cloud of fog that developed, but it… Read Full Review

I did a little research before buying the Nightstalker and found that the seals would fail and cause leaking if not properly lubricated using Pellgunoil, so I made sure to order it along with the rifle and so far I've loaded 5 88 gram bottles without a problem.
I bought the Tactical kit. The accessories are very well made. The bipod is sturdy. The red/green dot scope is very well made and easy to adjust in the field. The flashlight gives it the tactical look and is very nice when shooting in… Read Full Review

Okay...first the leaking. "Mine started to leak after the 2nd CO2 cartridge and then I found out I was supposed to oil the tip of the cylinder"
Duh...just like it says in the Crosman Nightstalker TK instructions! (What, I don't read no stinkin instructions...whaddaya think...I'm a wuss?).
I also seat my pellets properly, the way the instructions say (oh, those damned instructions again).
I've put about 3000 shots through my Nightstalker (that's about 12 cartridges), and no leaks, no jams… Read Full Review

Crosman Nightstalker TK is a great gun until it starts to leak co2, i sent mine in and i think they just sent the same one back because it still leaked. not worth what I paid for it back when it was new, don't waste your time and money with this gun, trust me… Read Full Review

As its a blow back machine it is a fast shooter.
Unfortunately to overcome the 'Lets convert it to fully automatic brigade' they have left the actual magazine rotation as trigger activated. (first 5 mm of trigger pull turns mag, very light)
While this works well it does have a design fault.
There is no magazine to breach 'indent' in the design to ensure barrel and magazine are 'locked' in alignment.
This means that after some useage the pawl lever (which rotates the magazine) can start to push… Read Full Review

The Nightstalker does have great accuracy and power, but I do not recommend buying this air rifle. When I bought the Nightstalker I loved it, but after a few co2s the seal went bad. Then I found out I had to use a gun oil on the co2 tanks. I sent it in and it was replaced, but the seal just went bad again after a couple co2s… Read Full Review

My Crosman Nightstalker TK jams with most pellets and if there not big enough they just fall out before you even get the mag anywhere near the gun they feel cheap and look it close up personally if your thinking of buying one dont bother i would rather of had a rabbit stopper or a rat catcher there the same power and reliable also better built and looks the part for the price… Read Full Review

I bought this gun on a whim. It was the last one at Kmart and had been previously opened, so I got a discount.
I took it up to the Mountains along with some pneumatic airguns and gave it a try. I hate C02, so I really wasn't expecting much. However, this gun is a ton of fun. I can tell from other reviews that it might expire prematurely, which is a shame. I was using Crosman hunting pellets and shot at least 100 rounds with no problems. It blasted through plastic bottles and cans from quite a… Read Full Review

When I bought this gun, the price was right. If it breaks I will buy another one. Thats how much fun it is, not as fun as the storm but fun none the less. It goes threw ammo and air fast. red/green scope is not bright enough. Its fun too shoot, light weight, good for beginners or big old kids… Read Full Review

$100 for a gun that wont shoot but maybe 25% of the time. Constant jams. Wasted numerous trips to find pellets that wont jam to no avail. All pellets are not the same size. Most are too thick and jam in the clip. Some are so small they wont stay in the clip and slip out in the chamber or fall out in your hand before you even make it to the chamber. Plus the clip is not easy to insert into the chamber.
The sites stink also. Takes too long to get my eye adjusted to the site before I can shoot… Read Full Review

The Barreta Storm looked cool but it had limited power compared to my Airforce Talon SS right out of the box. Very limited power. From across the yard I can smash Dragon Flys with the Talon but with the Storm I can be lucky just to maybe hit it! I also had my Talon custom modified and completely quieted down and jeweled. Rebuilt valves and the works. That took me to about $1500.00. not including my Scuba tanks to fill it.
I realized this is much more $$ but I needed an airgun that would get the… Read Full Review
