    Does anyone have one of these? I am looking for feedback on this model. Pro’s and cons? Noise, backyard friendly? I have a  22 cal cricket bullpup and I love it.

    I know a guy who owns one and absolutely loves it, he shoots pest birds with it out 50+ yards or so. Check your PM

    Got one in a trade deal slightly quieter than the .22 ( bad hearing ) and the .22 is quieter than Marauder shorter by about 3″ Loved the 10.34 JSB’s shooting about 925 FPS only pellet I used. Synthetic stock not noticeably lighter than the .22 I had only 3 mags and aired up when out Probably could of got 70+ shots Had a 6.5X20 hawke w/o sunshade hung over gun I just never warmed up to the .177 as I mostly hunt  My friend ended up with it and it’s his favorite gun He’s got a 3X9 bb on it and that replaced his .22 Disco The smaller scope makes the gun feel and act way lighter he’s taken hundreds of bunnies on his land The smaller tube he’s not complaining about hand pumping

    I owned a .22, I would say short barrel heavy as well.

    I have a standard length .177 Cricket.  Fantastic rifle.  Super accurate and lots of shots per fill.  Get extra magazines.

    The 177 cricket short is in very high demand, Good luck finding one.
    I think the 177 mutant short if they made one would put the cricket out to pasture,

    Anyone have the weight of the mutant and the cricket? Im looking for a lightweight compact shooter and the list is very short right now.

    Looks like you are going to be buying a Mutant, Tim.
    I know the standard is on sale, But get a shorty ,
    Trust me on this one , If you want light weight , and super accuracy , and short.

Dead sexy!!!!!! Would that cheek piece fit on a mutant?  Perhaps a little modification?

    Don’t know mate, Don’t own a mutant. But looking at pics I don’t see why not, but don’t you load the mutant Magazine from above making a Cheek piece unusable? Or can the mag be loaded from the side?

    I have owned a 177 compact for a over two years. On a 220 bar fill it gets over 65 shots at 18.5 fpe. The trigger was decent out of the box and with a little work very good for a bullpup. Mine has the older moderator and is a little louder than an mrod 177 shooting18 – 19 fpe. Recently shot a cricket rifle 177 with the new moderator and its almost silent, Crickets have very little to zero ping.

    The synthetic stock is heavier than the wood so I recommend getting wood and if you can find a skeleton get it. Makes the compact easier to handle/carry/shoot off hand. Guy makes a nice aftermarket stock, (the photos of Tony.R above).

    Magazines are easy to load and with a little practice putting the 177’s into the mag is a breeze. If you buy a compact pick up 4 extra mags. 

    Compact ready for FT

    Compact ready for backyard plinking and chipmunk/squirrel/pest bird removal

     Recently tuned by Brain at KS Airguns

    Brain tested JSB 10.3 and Crosman 10 .5 at 55 yards.
