Crosman mk 177 review DEFAULT

4.0 out of 5 starsFantastic looks, fair performance

Reviewed in the United States on February 23, 2014

I’m absolutely never an impulse buyer, but the moment I spotted this rifle on the Crosman website I just had to have it. I also rarely choose looks over function, but again the MK-177 became a must-have for me as soon as I’d seen it. Closely based on the Magpul Masada (now being produced as the Bushmaster ACR), the MK-177 is one of the few realistic military rifles available in the airgun (not to be confused with Airsoft) world. I’ll mention right up front that if all you’re looking for is a military style pellet rifle, strongly consider the much more popular M4-177, also from Crosman and at a slightly lower price point. The M4-177 has had few issues, is easy to pump, and comfortable to shoot. But if you can’t settle for anything less than a futuristic-looking assault rifle that will make you look like you’re on your way to invade a small country (or planet), the MK-177 may be your gun.

Now on to the actual functionality of the rifle itself. If you’ve read any other reviews at all, you already know that the big issue with this product is the placement of the cocking bolt on the left side of the weapon, while the magazine must be inserted and indexed from the right side (as opposed to the M4-177 which places both conveniently on the right). I actually got used to the hand-switch fairly quickly, but it’s obviously annoying enough to mention for others. However, if you track down photos of the Magpul Masada, you’ll see that the bolt is actually located on the left side—though of course you don’t have to index a pellet magazine on the right side too. So kudos to Crosman for trying to maintain real-life accuracy—though they’ll probably take a closer look at ergonomics next time a functionality conflict comes up.

A minor complaint includes placing extra storage under the rubber butt cap (instead of a cool removable magazine as in the M4-177). Some may not like the all-plastic exterior construction, including trigger and safety, although it seems sturdy enough. The result, however, is a too-lightweight gun that could never be mistaken for a real firearm when you pick it up—even with metal weights inserted to add heft. Other reviews mention “polymer” construction, but it’ll just be plastic to most folks. Pumping is actually a bit hard, though manageable, and unlike some buyers who reported the pumping smoothing out with use the pumping on mine actually seemed to get a bit stiffer, especially if pumping all the way up to ten. It takes increasing force to disengage the pump handle from the barrel as the number of pumps increase. I did the vast majority of my shooting at five pumps, and that was comfortable enough, but ten pumps is definitely some work.

And finally, the real meat and potatoes—shooting and accuracy. I decided to drop the iron sights for a tactical red dot scope, which is something I’ve been wanting to try that also enhances the coolness factor of the rifle. If you buy the MK-177 kit, it includes the Crosman CenterPoint 72609 (and note that you can find the kit for only a little more than the rifle itself from some vendors). I went through two higher end—but defective—CenterPoint 72601 sights before exchanging for a Leapers Golden Image 30mm red dot that seems to be holding up well so far. Considering that (1) it’s a non-magnified sight and (2) the red dot covers an area almost twice the size of the bullseye at 10 meters, I was quite surprised at the groups I could shoot with the MK-177. Even with such a coarse sighting system, and shooting only from a semi-rested seated position, my wife and I were both able to shoot some dime-sized groups at 10 m. I just swapped the red dot out for a 3-9x40 scope, and with some very limited shooting time under my belt with that combo was shooting similarly small groups from a sitting position—and fully expect that to improve with just a little more sight-in time.

The one thing I really don’t like about this rifle and just couldn’t get used to is the extended trigger creep. You’ll feel like you might die of old age before reaching the release point. Even after putting close to 500 pellets through the gun—more than plenty of practice—I’m still not confident with it. Decent accuracy would certainly be much easier with a crisper trigger.

One thing of note is that the stock is very low, and my wife and I both noticed how much we had to scrunch our faces down to line up with the red dot sight, but we got used to it. However, the gun is still not the most comfortable to shoot; if you buy a regular scope do yourself a favor and get high scope mounts to go with it.

Without a chronograph I couldn’t verify pellet velocities (please don’t ruin your rifled steel barrel by shooting BBs through it), but at five pumps performance seemed comparable or better than what I was used to from my Crosman American Classic 2100 with the same number of pumps. Advertising velocities up to 750 fps with alloy pellets, the MK-177 is slightly faster than the cousin M4-177 . . . on paper. However, some chronographed reviews indicate velocity is significantly lower than this. If I have the opportunity to chronograph this gun, I’ll post an update.

So there you have it. You’ll buy this gun for looks over functionality. But it looks fantastic, and if you can deal with some inconveniences, will shoot rather well while doing so.

You shoot 500 rounds of pellets in a row in the afternoon.

The tin cans blow everywhere, about a dozen of them shattered in your backyard

Then, a friend calls you over for an all-night late party.

Awesome, you go to the party and drink a few beers.

On the walk home, you feel the rain on your face when walking to your front door, and the cold feeling of the rain reminds you of one thing —

You forgot to leave your gun outside and it IS RAINING!

You pray that your gun is still safe and sound while rushing towards its place.

And it’s not damaged. Thank God.

Now, you can breathe again. 

The above story illustrates why we fall in love with synthetic guns that stand vigorously in any kind of weather.

And Crosman MK-177 is one of those guns.

Table of Contents

Crosman MK177 – Gun Type

This is a multi-pump pneumatic air rifle.

It gets its power from a piston and a pressure cylinder inside the chamber.

For more on 5 types of air rifles you need to know before buying, see this post.

Pump pneumatic air guns are compact, lightweight, recoilless and give you control over the power of the gun .

They are perfect for every shooter.

Whether you are 10, 30, 50, whether you are male or female, everyone can shoot a multi-pump.

If you are young or small and don’t have any muscle power, put just 2 or 3 pumps in the gun and shoot away.

If you like high power and have all the muscle required, you can put 10 pumps to get maximum power.

You can read more about pros and cons of a pump rifle in this post.

crosman mk-177 tan tactical air rifle specs

The caliber (the internal diameter of the bore, measured in inches) is .177- the most common caliber for target shooting and plinking.

For more on how to choose the right air gun caliber for your game, see this post.

This gun is a double-function air rifle with a rifled barrel.

(For more on things you should know about air rifle barrels before buying, see this post).

It shoots either BB or pellet and you can use whatever ammo you got at hands.

It just doesn’t get any better than a versatile ammo gun.

Combine this with the variable number of pumps and you’ve got every man’s air gun.

This all-new, tactical air rifle features new valve technology combining lower pumping force with higher velocity.

The newly designed bolt handle is larger and located on the left side for ease of use.

Stock

The stock is a rugged all-weather synthetic.

For more on the in-depth comparison between synthetic and wood stock, see this post.

The stock has a slightly raised cheek piece and slightly textured plastic in the grip so you can grasp this gun more tightly and line up the sight faster.

Moreover, this gun has a tactical pistol grip:

  • It orients the hand in the vertical way similar to the position one would take with a conventional pistol.

This pistol grip provides a comfortable feel and allows you to maneuver the gun easily.

The stock has removable rubber buttplate so you can store ammo in the handy space beneath the recoil pad.

Ammo

The Crosman MK-177 uses both .177 BBs and .177 pellets as its sources of ammunition.

BBs are surprisingly cheap and .177 pellets are inexpensive, too.

If you look at the price of .177 versus .22 pellet, you’ll see that you get twice the amount of ammo with .177 pellet for the same price.

Having 2 cheapest ammo at your disposal prevents you from worrying about breaking the bank if you practice shooting a lot.

For more on the differences between .177 & .22 and which jobs they do best, see this post.

Cocking and loading

crosman mk-177 tan tactical air rifle | crosman mk-177 tan tactical air rifle review

The funny thing about this gun is the placement of the cocking bolt on the left side

While the magazine must be inserted and indexed from the right side,

(as opposed to Crosman M4-177 which place both of them conveniently on the right),

But it’s not that big of a deal when you get used to it.

Sight

crosman mk-177 tan tactical air gun | crosman mk-177 tan tactical air gun review

The Crosman MK-177 comes with an outstanding open sight.

The sight consists of a post front sight and dual aperture rear sight.

The aperture sight (a.k.a peep sight) is similar to the iron sight except it has a small hole cutting through the middle of the rear sight.

When aiming, shooters look through the aperture, focus their eyes only on the front sight and the target.

The eyes will automatically center the front sight and ensure the accuracy.

The picture of front sight and the target is sharp and clear while the surrounding of the aperture now is only out of focus blur zone.

So sometimes aperture sight is also called ghost ring sight.

The aperture sight has a significant advantage compared to a factory open sight.

With a traditional sight, there are 3 points you have to focus on: the target, the front sight and the rear sight.

It’s really hard to focus on 3 points at the same time since they are located at different distances from the eyes.

But with the aperture rear sight, there are only 2 points to focus on: the front sight and the target because the eyes automatically focus on these points at the center of the ring.

In conclusion, the aperture sight is fast to pick up, easy to acquire target and optically superior to a traditional open sight.

Velocity, accuracy and power

crosman mk-177 tan tactical air rifle accuracy | accessories

This multi-pump rifle has a velocity up to 800 FPS with steel BB and 750 FPS with alloy pellet.

This is medium velocity compared to other pellet guns and super-high velocity compared to other BB guns.

This type of awe-inspiring speed set this BB/pellet rifle apart from other air guns that also shoot BB on the market.

Chrony test has given us results as follows:

For 10 pumps:

PelletsFPSFPE
Crosman Premier 7.9 grains pellet628.76.94 
7 gr RWS pellet631.46.2 
RWS Hobby 7.0 gr594.55.49 
6.9 gr RWS6316.1 
Crosman SSP pointed pellet 4 gr7515.01 
Steel BBs 5.1 gr6695.07 

Although these velocities a lower than the advertised numbers, this gun still delivers enough knockdown power, about 5-7 FPE,

So it still can drop birds, crows, doves, etc and common plinking objects such as tin can, water bottle, and so on doesn’t stand a chance

For Crosman MK-177, various shooting tests have been conducted by different shooters with positive results.

The common shooting groups are:

  • 1” at 30 feet,
  • 1/2″ to 3/4″ at 20 yards,
  • 1/2″ at 22 feet,
  • 1” at 50 yards,
  • 1.173” at 10 meters with Crosman Premiere lite,
  • 0.839” at 10 meters with Air Arms Falcons 7.33 gr,
  • 0.858” at 10 meters with RWS Hobby,
  • 0.399” at 10 meters with H&N Finale Match Pistol.

As you can see this is an undoubtedly accurate air rifle with the shooting range up to 20 yards.

Customer review

There are lots of customer reviews of this multi-pump rifle.

In positive reviews, buyers love its solid polymer stock, realistic firearm looking, fantastic accuracy and over-expected power.

However, there are some negative reviews about this gun: They don’t like its location of bolt handle and its pellet storage in the buttplate but those are minor issues, though.

Pros and Cons

Price

The price for the Crosman Mk-177 is only about $60.

For $59, or even the normal $79 price, it’s a great gun for the money that will bring you tons of fun.

There are a couple of different listings online but the listing I’ve found with the lowest price is the best deal you can find on the internet.

Also, there is a listing on PyramydAir of the MK-177 with the red dot sight, a couple hundred pellets, carry-case, safety glasses and some spare pellet clips.

This listing is only about $100 and I think you should take a look at it if you want an all-in-one-package gun for your kids.

Conclusion

The Crosman MK-177 is a good air gun for a father and son day at the range.

If you’re looking for something fun to shoot and want that tactical look and feel, definitely take this gun, I’m sure you’ll be very pleased with it.

5.0 out of 5 starsBetter than M4-177

Reviewed in the United States on December 21, 2015

Verified Purchase

This was a MUCH better product than I anticipated, honestly. I also own the Crosman M4-.177, and this one excels it in look, feel, and pellet velocity. Since it has a rifled barrel, I plan on shooting only pellets through it. My review reflects that. Without further ado, the Pros and Cons as follows:

Pros
1) Trigger pull - smooth, flawless, and just about as perfect as you could hope for. I wish my real guns had a trigger pull as nice as this.
2) Pumping - for some reason, the pumping action on the MK-177 is a lot smoother than the M4-177. Also, the M4 kinda squeaks when I pump it. The MK is a lot more silent, and even pumping up to 10 wasn't difficult at all. In fact, it was so smooth and effortless that at first I was a bit nervous that maybe it was broken. After all, every pump gun I've owned gets progressively harder to pump as you approach 10. Not so with this one. Which leads to...
3) Power - despite my fears about it being broken due to the ease of pumping, it proved surprisingly powerful. I had a target set up at 30 ft with three layers of cardboard boxes and a couple of wood boards behind it. At five pumps I penetrated all three layers of boxes and bounced off the wood boards. At ten pumps, the pellet was lodged inside the boards. In short, this gun packs a punch. Do NOT aim at people. This will easily kill rodents and pests.
4) Quiet - this gun, even at 10 pumps, isn't nearly as loud as the CO2 guns I also shoot, despite having twice the velocity and power. After shooting a S&W CO2 powered pistol, it felt like I'd moved on to a rifle with a suppressor. Nice surprise!
5) Feel - shoulders nicely, easy point of aim if you mount the sights properly. There's a rubber butt pad on it for comfort, since there's not enough recoil to notice, and it adds a nice touch to it.

Cons:
1) Sights - wish they weren't plastic, but they still work just fine. I plan on adding a red dot to the rails on top, similar to what I've done for my M4-177. The plastic sights will end up in a box with my other leftover/unused accessories.
2) BB load hole cover - it's a bit floppy and doesn't stay in place very well. Not a bother, since I don't use BBs, but I wish that was a bit tighter overall. I don't like things flopping around on my guns.

Overall, if you are looking for a fun plinker or a pest control tool, this is your gun. It's awesome and you won't regret it.

Crosman M4-177 Air Rifle Review

I did not let any guy get close to her and generally believed that she would remain with me virgin. But now I was getting high from the touch of a friend's tongue in my hole. Daria fucked me with her tongue, then moistened her finger with saliva and began to insert her index finger into the ass. It hurt a little, but also great. Gradually Dasha developed my anus with one finger.
