Mike's Personal Guns For Sale - Pellet Pistols

Yes, I have more of my personal guns for sale, now we are getting into the pistols! I am showcasing here on the Replica Airguns website and over on the Replica Airguns YouTube channel a series of videos I am making for the purpose of selling some guns out of my personal collection. I simply have to make room for the new guns I will be testing and reviewing for everyone, my collection has gotten a little bit out of hand and needs to be thinned down a bit :)

In this 5th Mike's Personal Guns For Sale video, I am offering some of my pellet pistols in a variety of models ranging from some classic Crosman SAA .22 caliber revolvers to more modern CO2 blowback pistols like the Umarex Beretta PX4 Storm

Crosman 1088 Silver CO2 Pellet - BB Gun Review

Type: BB air pistol.
Manufacturer: Crosman.
Model: 1088S.
Materials: Mostly plastic.
Weight: 1.1 pounds.
Barrel: 3.8 inches, metal rifled.
Propulsion: CO2 x 1.
Action: Semi auto, double and single action.
Ammunition Type: .177 cal. pellets - 4.5mm BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 8 round rotary magazine.
FPS: 430.
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Crosman 1088 is pretty good in both single and double action modes, obviously a bit lighter in single action then when in double action. When I was using single action mode, I found the gun would accidentally de-cock its self if I was too tentative right at the break point, I did get used to the break point and was able to shoot in single action mode very effectively with just a bit of practice.
Accuracy: I shot the Crosman 1088 air gun at a target from 20 feet away in a free standing position, and it performed well getting a 1.25 inch grouping right close to the center of the target while using .177 pellets. The rear sight is adjustable for windage which is nice in an entry level pellet gun, the rifled barrel definitely helped this pistol to shoot while using pellets, when using BB's it may not be as accurate.
Build Quality: The 1088 is not going to win any wards for quality of build as it's pretty much an all plastic gun, but Crosman did use metal where it counts the most, in the rifled barrel, the hammer and the CO2 screw and tab (of course there are some metal internal parts).
Realism: The Crosman 1088 is not an actual replica gun, but it does closely resemble the Ruger P345 (.45 Auto). The 1088 does not have any of the Ruger's trademarks or licensing but it does share the basic shape and design of the Ruger P345.
Purchased From: The Replica Airguns Store.

Pros:

  • The price is right!
  • It has a rifled barrel.
  • Can shoot both pellets and BB's.
  • Has an adjustable rear sight for windage.
  • Has good accuracy and decent power.
  • CO2 screw and tab are hidden in the handle.
  • Is both a single and double action shooter.
  • Has a modern look with an under barrel accessory rail.
  • Made in the US.

Cons:

  • This gun is almost all plastic.
  • Trigger in single action mode can sometime de-cock the gun when slowly activating the trigger.

Comments:
There is no doubt that if this pellet shooter had more metal, it would appeal to a lot more people and would probably fetch a lot more money! That said, the plastic does not actually take away from the shooting experience and if you can get your mind around the plastic build quality, you will find this is a great little diverse pellet pistol with many excellent features like a rifled barrel, single and double action mode, ability to shoot pellets and BB's all with an adjustable rear sight.
