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 more)

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 more)

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... (read more)

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 more)

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 more)

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... (read more)

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 more)

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 more)

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 more)

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 more)

$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... (read more)

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... (read more)

The Crosman Nightstalker is overall a GREAT CO2 Rifle !
Ofcourse you can't compare it with a Beretta CX Storm or something like that, because that would be unfair.
You have to look in the same price range of ~100 dollars.
For that price, you get a lot of rifle, believe me !
The thing is fun to shoot and quite accruate even at 20 meters.
My Oring didn't leak yet and want to know why ? If you read the manual, it says you have to drop a bit of pelligunoil on every THIRD CO2 Airsource capsule. If you... (read more)

This is an update on my earlier review of this weapon.
Having returned my first NightStalker to Crosman and after some extensive haggling receiving a brand new one, plus a couple of AirSource capsule as well as a couple tins of pellets, I decided to test the newly received specimen, which performed even worse than the first one.
It did not fire semi-automatic and had to be re-cocked after each shot, no matter how carefully I handled the AirSource Capsules.
The trigger pressure, required to... (read more)

I was glad I was able to return mine and exchange it for a Beretta CX-4 Storm for approximately $90.00 more thanks to Pyramyd Air. It holds 30 rounds. Made in Germany with much better construction and materials for a stock! It is rated at 600fps as the night stalker is rated at 580fps. And though that may not sound like much the fact remains that it still felt like the Storm was simply a Night stalker on Steroids. By the time I am done though I will have $400.00 to $700.00 dollars into it... (read more)

At first I was nearly delirious with the arrival of the NightStalker, and after testing and centering the sights, I had a blast on the 50 meter range. If and when it works, it's absolutely fabulous, and if you can manage to deal with the oscillating bolt, it's well designed for being used by lefties as well as by righties. I managed rapid-fire (<5 second for 12 rounds) .50 inch groupings at 25 meters and just over 1 inch groupings at 50 meters, which is fairly impressive for a weapon with a barrel that's not bolted or threaded into the main structure of the mechanism.
Over the next couple of days, I started noticing that the weapon sometimes mis-fired, and upon inspection of the pellet, it appeared that... (read more)

The Crosman Nighstalker sucks!...besides it jams all the time, the air sourse leaks frequently and it is not a reliable hunting or target shooting divice. It works when ever it wants and its build out of very cheap materials (90% plastic) even the magazine is plastic!....
The bottom line, unless you want to waste your money, do not buy this gun....it sucks and take my word for it!!!! (read more)

I was very exited when I first got my Crosman Nightstalker TK home from the shop. Tried it out and it worked fine. About a week later the gas started leaking on 4th bottle. I don't like the feel of the gun, it's quite tacky. Don't buy this gun unless you don't mind sending it back every other time you use it. (read more)

This is a second review. After further use I have no use for this rifle at all. After a very short time it began to misfire, the trigger had to be pulled with pressure to the left (hard) to get it to fire at all. I'd sell this thing for $50 if anybody wanted it that bad. (read more)

I had been waiting for the first shipment of Nightstalker's to be released by customs for sale in the UK, for a couple of weeks. And man was the wait worth while. This little lump of metal and plastic, is absolutely fantastic. I could go on for ever about how great it is. and how the UK market has been screaming out for a gun like this but I won't as that will take too many paragraphs. So to make it simple all I will say is if you see one for sale, ask for a test fire of it. Because trust me... (read more)
