Crosman TAC1.22 reveiw
« on: January 14, 2008, 11:07:45 AM »
After receiving the Crosman TAC 1.22 over two month's ago I can atlast sit down and give you something to chew on. Let's start with the stock which is plastic but very comfortable to hold and shoulder's well. The foregrip area fit's nicely into the palm of the hand with small dimple's for gripping which seem's like more for show since most Airgun's like to be held loose. The cheekrest area is nice but very slim which can be fixed with a layer of padding such as hobby foam in different color's. It also help's since the plastic is very chilly on winter hunt's. The action: the blueing from barrel to back was perfect, no blemish's or scratch's. Cocking  the TAC1 was a surprize, the lack of mainspring noise and the smoothness of the task was overall a pleasure to hear and feel since this is a untuned airgun. With a solid lockup  and lack of side play from the breachblock area the Airgun was loaded and ready to fire. Trigger, well we all know the Gamo trigger's and the same applies to the TAC1. :0 It is a two stage trigger with a good safety but rough would be the word for it. I did notice after some trigger time at the target's and a few hunt's under her belt, it smoothed out some but I highly suggest that you pull it and put in one of CDT'S fantastic gold trigger's and avoid this look. :0 Shooting: As for most airguns' the TAC1 puffed some on her first voyage out but I was impressed by the accuracy right out of the box, remind's me of the CFX.22 and is happy to shoot just about anything that I feed her. At my 30yrd target she was eating up the bullseye and the TAC1 comes scoped with a CenterPoint 3-9x32 Mil-Dot eluminated reticle which has performed great for me. The TAC1 also came with a RedDot laser, lamp,bipod and soft guncase. The laser wander's, get a quality one and the lamp work's well out 30yrd's. The bipod is ok but I suggest that you don't mount it to the barrel, droop and changes POI. Chrony time: Crosman say's 800fps but real world say's 760 avg. and I just ran her through again. This is still good for it's intended purpose which is hunting and you can find my hunting report's on the TAC1 in the Hunting Gate and my Album. Overall I would be happy to suggest the TAC1.22 for a well balanced airgun for hunting and with a few changes such as the trigger and accessories it would make for a solid out of the box shooter. Ed

Thanks Ed,



Great review on your new TAC1.22. I enjoyed your journey checking out your new baby, and finding out how she performs. She looks like a fine hunting rifle, ounce you replaced the trigger with a GRT-III, we all know how much improvement that makes !



Thanks for sharing your findings with us.

Excellent report Ed. Nice and detailed you hit the good and the bad points. Anyone should be able to make a good assessment on wether or not this gun is for them.  :)
