    to start i was a machine gunner in the Marine Corps so i know a little bit about weapons. back in the day i had the m-16 replica from crossman and loved it. this rifle is as good as that with the exception of the sights. after zeroing it in it seems to not keep the accuracy but it does take care of pests when it makes contact at 20-30 yards. it is very powerful and ive been using mine for about two weeks now. i shall get a scope and see if that helps the carrry handle from my real m-4 fits right on with no problem so the replica status is pretty accurate. it does pump hard but its not an issue for me might be for some. if you like replicas this is a good find in my opinion.

    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 3-9×40 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…

    Very accurate with Pellets. Not so much with BBs. Great kids pellet gun except the cocking spring, not the pump, is kind of hard for a 10 year old. It definitely looks cool.
