Comments: This is a pretty good shooter for the price. However, the trigger is really soft with a poorly defined break point in both single-action and double-action shooting. It has a fully adjustable rear sight and good accuracy. Crosman discontinued the Model 1008 in late 2006.

Performance: Measurements were made on 8/10/06 at a temperature of 83 F and 14' elevation. A ten shot string was fired from a bench rest at 15' using RWS Meisterkugeln Pistol & Rifle pellets (7.8 gr). The highest velocity measured was 399 fps, the lowest was 339 fps (average of the 10-shot string was 368 fps). A six shot string fired with a red-dot sight grouped at 0.53".

Loading Pellets: Be sure to push the barrel down until you hear and feel it engage the latch. This takes considerable force. If the barrel is not properly latched, the barrel will flip up when the gun is fired causing the round magazine to fly off.
