Crosman M4-177 Pneumatic Pump Air Rifle Review


If you’re looking for a cool looking air rifle then the Crosman M4-177 might be just what you need. Now this isn’t the most powerful air rifle in existence but for the price it’s pretty darn good. I bought the M4-177 as just something cool to own but I actually ended up falling in love with it. As you can guess it models the M4 and it actually does a really good job of looking like the real thing. If you aren’t interested in hunting and just want to have fun shooting targets in the backyard then you might want to keep reading this air rifle review to see if this model is right for you.




Unlike the normal hunting break barrel rifles this model is actually operated by a pneumatic pump design. This basically means the more you pump the more fps you will get up to a certain extent. Also instead of just loading a pellet at a time you get the Crosman Firepow’r 5-shot pellet clip as well as a BB reservoir that holds up to 350 BB’s. This is my favorite feature of this air rifle due to the fact it just makes shooting a little more fun since you don’t have to constantly reload.

The stock that is included is fully adjustable and even has loop slots for a sling. Also included is a dual aperture rear sight that allows for wind and elevation adjustment which is really useful. To give it a more realistic feel the pellet clip is stored in the removable magazine which I really like as well.

The rails on top can be used for attaching anything from a scope to a flashlight so if you do want to upgrade you can to further improve the performance. I will admit for an air rifle of this standard it’s a little silly to put too much money into it but in the end it’s all up to you. This bad boy can shoot up too 600 fps with pellets and 625 with BB’s. This is plenty for plinking purposes and for the price of $60 you really can’t get much better than this. Hopefully you’ve enjoyed my air rifle review of the Crosman M4-177 and remember to always check back for more reviews!

Air rifles should never be mistaken as toys nor should they be handled or used in the manner that airsoft guns are. If you were to shoot an air rifle in the direction of a human it is definite that they would become harmed. However, things could be much worse than that – they could those their life. It is not difficult by any means to become careless while shooting these guns which is why the media tends to stress the dangers of all guns to the public. Everybody should take the time to learn proper air rifle safety as well as tips on how to handle, along with how to shoot their rifle.

Basic Air Rifle Safety

Before you even take your rifle out for some target shooting, you should undergo all measures possible in learning how your gun works. This includes mastering loading it, unloading it, operating, shooting and maintaining your air rifle. To do this, you could read the manual/instructions that came with the rifle purchase, find the information online or visit a local shooting range.


One key feature on your gun is the safety. With whatever method you choose to figure out operating your gun, it is essential that you learn how to use the safety. It will prevent you from accidentally firing the air rifle when it is in your possession, but not being used for hunting or plinking.

Once you learn how to operate and handle your air rifle you can move on to attempting some target shooting. Even if the real reason you bought the gun is to hunt, it’s a good to get an idea of how your gun feels, and shoots. After you feel comfortable with your old-fashioned plinking practices, you can head out to the woods and take down some furry opponents.

While doing so, be sure to keep this tips in mind:

  1.  Always wear protective eye gear.
  2. Keep your hand away from the trigger unless intending to shoot.
  3. Do not leave your gun loaded after using it.
  4. Keep guns pointed away from people and valuable items.
  5. When not in use, keep your gun in a safe, out of reach from children.


Best Mini Quadcopter: Reviews


Many people enjoy flying their drones inside, especially in areas where it’s often windy or raining. Unfortunately, flying quadcopters inside puts them at risks of hitting walls, doors and worst of all – ceiling fans. In a matter of seconds your favorite purchase that you spent so much money on could turn into ruins. Luckily, there’s a simple fix to this: mini drones. Practically built for indoor flying, these machines are quite fun and easy to use. Also, they tend to be cheaper and some even come as quadcopters with cameras! Though, the picture quality usually isn’t the best, but hey at least they tried. I, myself, own two of the best mini quadcopters today. They are the Blade Nano QX and the Estes Proto X Nano.


Blade Nano QX


Due to the SAFE technology used in the creation of the Blade Nano Qx you can easily switch between beginner (stability) and advanced (agility) flying modes. This makes the quadcopter especially great for beginners, which is what I was when I bought it, because you can always start out on the stability mode and then move up to agility as you get the hang of it and learn to perform tricks. Weighing just half an ounce, this bad boy comes ready to fly so all you have to do is charge it and you’re set.


Estes Proto X Nano


So, I bought this drone mainly because it was and still is the smallest quad in the world at just .4 of an ounce. Little did I know, I would come to know it as the best mini quadcopter of all time. The Estes Proto X Nano features red and blue LED lights to indicate the front and back of the copter, however, I enjoy the LED lights for flying in the dark simply because it looks cool. Also, it’s very easy to fly and has an excellent design that any user would love.


We all know that air rifles are a bit of a habit, regardless of why you’re using them. Whether it be hunting purposes or target shooting, air rifles are definitely something to enjoy, but I’m sure you already know that. What you also more than likely already know is that it can be difficult finding the right air rifle – some are designed for small game hunting, others for shooting, and there are even really powerful ones that can take down some decently large beasts. You get into looking at the length, weight and specifications of the rifle and eventually it all ends up looking like a giant pile of words and numbers that don’t make much sense, especially if you’re new to the hobby. If you happen to be looking for a rifle that is great for small game hunting and plinking, then you’re in luck; I can help you. Out of the many dozens of rifles I’ve shot over the years the Ruger Blackhawk Combo is the absolute best air rifle at what it does. You’ll quickly learn why.


Ruger Blackhawk Combo


To start, let’s take a look at the size of this thing. It measures in at 44.8 inches long and contains a barrel that is almost 19 inches of the whole rifle. Also, it weighs just under 7 pounds, so there’s no need to worry about it ever becoming too heavy. The Blackhawk features a cocking effort of 30 pounds, and a trigger pull of 3.3 pounds. Unfortunately, it has a shot capacity of just 1, however this is typical for pretty much every rifle, especially one under $100. Now let’s take a look at some more exciting features that you actually care about.


  • .177 Caliber
  • 1000 fps
  • Medium Loudness
  • Rifled Barrel
  • Fiber Optic Front & Rear Sights
  • 11mm Scopeable Dovetail
  • Rubber Buttplate
  • Automatic Safety
  • Spring-Piston Powerplant
  • All Weather Ambi Composite Stock
  • 4×32 Scope & Mount
  • 32mm Objective Lens
  • Shockproof
  • FogProof
  • Waterproof
  • Matte Black Finish
  • Duplex Reticle

Seems like a pretty great gun, right? Well, at least I consider it the best air rifle out there – for small game hunting reasons at the least. It truly is such a quality rifle at such an outstanding price. If you’re unsure about it, just check out this awesome video I found on YouTube.


Top Quadcopter With Camera


There are so many drones out there to choose from and lately there’s been an ever so rapidly growing quadcopter with camera collection. Now, majority of drones are compatible with a GoPro camera, such as the DJI Phantom. Still, many copters come with built-in cameras, like the Husban X4 mini quadcopter and then new and improved Phantom 2 Vision at the top of the league. One question remains – which is the best? Well, I’m here to tell you. Let’s take a look of some of the top notch quadcopters out there that support aerial photography.

  Husban X4

  The Husban X4 is not only a quadcopter with camera, but a mini quadcopter as well. It has an extremely lightweight airframe but is still very durable, believe me, I know. I’ve crashed this drone on a number of occasions and it still works as good as new. My favorite thing about this mini quad is the beautiful design – it’s white with red and blue detail. There are several other color schemes, though, the body of the quadcopter always remains white.

Husban X4 Features:

  • 6-Axis Flight Control System
  • Stable Flight
  • 0820 Coreless Motor
  • Live Video
  • Fast Charging Time of 30 Minutes
  • .3M Pixels Camera
  • Instant Video Review on Transmitter

Husban X4 Review

It’s quite a great little flying machine, and when it comes to the camera, it’s not the best but it’s alright for the size and price of the drone. I’ve never had a problem with my X4 and I’m sure you won’t either if you feel this is the best quadcopter for you!


UDI U818A RC Quadcopter

I purchased this drone towards the beginning of the year and it has yet to disappoint me. That’s saying a lot considering I take my UDI U818A quadcopter out at least once a week. Hey, that just goes to show you how great this quad really is. Anyways, the U818A features a camera that is pretty decent; it does it’s job and then some. It also comes with a 3.7V Lipo battery, a 1GB micro SD card, 3D flight and 36o flips.

Compared to the Husban X4, it is notably bigger; the increased size really helps when it comes to flying outdoors as it helps keep the drone stabilized in winds. Whereas with a small drone your quadcopter would likely be carried away, so that’s something you should consider. The next thing I want to mention is the charging time, at 120 minutes, it’s not the best. However, that can easily be fixed by just ensuring you put your drone on the charger ahead of time, preferably the night before. After charging the drone completely you can get up to 9 minutes of flying time, which is plenty. Finally, check out this UDI U818A RC Quadcopter review video below! It perfectly demonstrates just how well this beast performs.
