“Smaug”I think I’m going to eventually try a .22 nitro piston gun. Probably will settle for a Crosman ($200) and find a good aftermarket trigger, ($30) rather than spend near $1k for a fancy European one.

I see that BSA makes an affordable gas piston gun. Maybe that’d be a step higher than Crosman, but not an RX2 class.


I have a Crosman Nitro Venom Dusk 22 and once I did the bearing mod on the trigger and removed the extra tension spring , loctited everything and broke it in I really like it. I am currently waiting on a new scope for it since I feel it deserves better than the craptastic centerpoint 4×32. Its a heavy rifle so recoil is minimal, long barrel so cocking is easy and the heavy 22 pellets keep the FPS at accurate velocities.
