Crosman 1077 semiautomatic, CO2 air rifle has been inspired by Ruger 1022 firearms.
Online customer reviews can show you a lot of positive and a lot of negative reviews.
You ask, "What the hell is going on?"
Don’t worry, I guarantee you will find the answer for that phenomenon at the end of this Crosman 1077 review.
Crosman 1077 semi automatic – Gun Type
This is a CO2 pneumatic gun.
Unlike the spring gun that uses coiled spring as the powerplant, a CO2 gun’s power comes from compressed air in a CO2 cartridge.
CO2 guns can be very easy to cock, are highly accurate, portable for repeated shooting and allow semi-automatic firing.
(To learn more about the 5 types air rifles you must know before buying, please see this post.
Crosman 1077 comes with a multi-shot capability and a 12-shot rotary pellet clip.
When you pull the trigger, the clip rotates around its axis, so there’s a pellet reloaded every time.
Multi-shot capability allows you to have more fun and shoot more images in a shorter time.
The Crosman 1077's barrel is a rifled barrel made of steel with spiral grooves.
(For more information on air rifle barrels, please see this post.
Crosman 1077 air guns are semi-automatic rifles.
Don’t confuse semi-automatic with automatic guns.
You can fire automatic guns continuously so long as you hold the trigger.
The gun fires until the magazine is empty.
A semi-automatic gun, on the other hand, requires that you pull the trigger independently.
The trigger must be reset after you have fired the first shot.
However, the Crosman1077 allows you to fire the gun as fast you can.
You can fire more pellets if you move your fingers faster.
Semi-automatic features increase follow-up shot speeds and allow you to capture the entire slip without having to adjust the sight.

Loading Crosman 1077 CO2 Air Gun
How to load the pellet:
First, put the gun on “SAFE”.
Release the buttons on both sides of the magazine to pull it down.
Slide the pellet clip pin in front and pull out the clip.
With the clip in one hand, use your other hand to insert a pellet at one of twelve pellet chambers (with the pellet’s nose lying forward and the pellet’s skirt flying backward).
Continue to insert the pellet until it is fully filled.
Place the clip in the magazine. Pull the clip pin backwards and then return the magazine to the stock.
Installation of a CO2 cartridge
Put the gun “SAFE”.
Remove the cap from the barrel that is piercing.
Place the CO2 cylinder in the gun, with the small head facing rearward.
Fix the cap in place.
Set the gun aside and fire.
If the gun doesn’t shoot, put it on safe and tighten the screw more (you can use a screwdriver or a coin placing in a slot of the knob to produce more force)
You can see that loading the Crosman 1077 gun takes little effort.
And the best part is you don’t have to break a single sweat to pump or to break down the barrel like other pneumatic rifles and springers.
Crosman 1077 Sight
The Crosman1077 has a fiberoptic front sight.
This sight uses optical fiber to align the dots, so it can be used even in low-light conditions.
The rear sight also has windage adjustment, which allows you to adjust your sight to the left or right.

You can’t get a better semi-automatic CO2 air rifle at this price level.
Remember that you need to buy a lot of pellets (at least 500 count packs) and lots of CO2 cartridges if you shoot a lot.
However, the cost of CO2 pellets and capsules can increase over time.
Crosman 1077 semiautomatic, CO2 air rifle is now covered by a limited 1-year warranty.
When researching this product, I always check out customer reviews.
Although there are many 4 and 5 star ratings for the Crosman 1077, it also has a number of 1-star ratings.
Two issues arose from the negative reviews.
First, the CO2 leaking problem. The gun can't shoot.
However, defective products are always a concern when shopping online for air rifles.
The second is pellet jamming.
You will find the instructions very clear on how to insert the pellet in the clip.
To avoid damage to your gun, you should only use the Crosman pellet.
