This is the spring compressor that I built and it works great and can be used on all spring piston and nitro piston Airguns except pistols, I’m in the process of making a smaller one to use on pistols like the ruger mark 1 and the browning 800.
The Crosman Vantage NP is a value priced nitro piston break barrel air rifle that shoots up to 1,200 fps with alloy pellets, It weighs 7.79 pounds and is 44.5 inches long. It comes with a crosman centerpoint 4x32mm scope and mounts and it has fiber optic front and rear sights, green on the front and red on the rear. The accuracy is very good measuring 1/4″ to 3/8″ with a leapers 3-9x40mm AO,MD,IR scope. When I bought mine it came with a crosman centerpoint 3-9x32mm scope which wasn’t a bad scope, it was good for what it was and functioned as expected.
This is the .22 cal Optimus with a leapers 3-12x40mm AO,MD,IR with high mounts and it is a very good shooter and is very accurate once you get used to springers, The trigger is not great but it does smooth out with use and you can upgrade it with a GRT 3 trigger from Charlie De Tuna. The best ammo that I have found for the optimus is RWS super H points and Crosman premier hollow points, both give good accuracy.
The Ruger Blackhawk is a very well built air rifle from Umarex, It comes with a 4x32mm scope. Although the scope isn’t great but once sighted in it does hold the setting. I mounted my Crosman center point 3-9x32mm scope with medium rings and a UTG droop compensating base. The best ammo that I have found for the Ruger is gamo match wadcutters in 7.71 gr and 7.56 gr and beeman 7.2 gr coated hollow points and they both preform very well.
The Crosman vantage 1200 is a good springer for just about anyone whether you are just starting out or are an avid airgunner, the cocking effort is 30 Lbs and the weight is 7.79 Lbs. it also comes with fiber optic front and rear sights which work well and are close to being dead on from the factory, it comes with a Crosman center point 4x32mm scope and it is ok to start you out but you may want to upgrade to a leapers 3-9×32 AO, MD to get more out of this rifle. It is very accurate and once sighted in you can expect some pretty nice groups.
.177 cal BB repeater.
