Hi, folks!I have to say something about Crosman/Remington.I had Crosman Storm XT. This is good value for money, but need a bit of work.All Crosman/Remington rifles contains too much lubricant inside. This substance produces diesel-effect that cause to random-higher speed of pellet. So you will have a random speed and random recoil. This will disallow good accuracy for you. And first rounds you may hear sound like firearm :)As result of this you may loose your mainspring (unable to cock) or spring seal (loosing the power).ADVICE: use double rounds to minimize diesel-effect when starting to shoot, but is better to clean the rifle... See below...2 Storm XT and 2 Remington Summit rifles was a bit tuned by me while here.I`ve cleaned compression chamber and barrel from grease and factory lubricant, polish the chamber, added some RWS special oil inside of chamber and around piston seal. This procedure require full disassembling the rifle.Adjustable trigger.The trigger adjust screw located behind the trigger and is easy to be used. Pay some attention to manual, guys. Actually trigger starts to work softer after cleaning, oiling, and shooting 50-100 rounds.Stock.I put some electric tape lines under the compressor to minimize vibration.Screws.I use the gun locker fluid to all screws including the scope`s ones.Accuracy.I may hit the tennis ball from 60-70 yards without problems. Group at paper target was about 1 inch from 30 yards. See that I supported the forearm with hands from sitting position. And wind was blow.... With sandbag I think the accuracy of this tests may be better.Right now I have the Remington Summit. This one have the same metal parts as Crosman Storm XT and Quest, but stock is better, scope is more advanced and muzzle break is coming with factory combo. It have a little better accuracy for muzzle weight at the end of the barrel and heavy scope.I recommend this rifles, but see that:1) They should be selected when buy at store because the barrel and compressor axes must be parallel. There are many defective rifles with this issue. You will be unable to adjust the scope in future.2) They should be maintained as described above to make them valid for shooting.If you need some advices - welcome.
