I had the Crosman 22 Cal Summit Ranger Np2 out, shooting, this morning.  I had not shot it in quite a while.  The 1st shot was right on target and no scope adjustments were necessary.   I was shooting Crosman 14.3 gr. 22 cal. Piranha's.  The more I shoot this gun the more I like it.   It is a good, all around, small game hunting rifle.     

                                                      Reasonably Powerful - Accurate - Good Field Weight - Well Built & Tough

Best Wishes  -  Tom

If you look closely at the pictures of Crosman Summit Ranger and the Walther Terrus below, you can see some similarities. 
Crosman must have patterned the Summit Ranger after the Terrus.

Corey...I will be waiting to see how you like your Summit Ranger....I really like mine and it is my go-to-gun for winter hunting.

P.S.  This information below, was copied from P.A.'s web site


The Summit Ranger is an accessible shooter that’s trail ready straight out of the box.  Featuring Crosman’s Nitro Piston 2 technology, this gun can shoot in cold weather conditions, remain cocked for hours, and shoot 80% quieter than most spring piston rifles.
With practical features for field carry, the Summit Ranger includes an all-weather black synthetic stock with integrated sling mounts to add a strap for easy transport.  Atop the stock is an 11mm Dovetail rail to mount your optics choice, or if you prefer, the Ranger has metal open sights—which is a nice touch over flimsy plastic ones.  As an added bonus, this airgun includes Crosman’s Clean Break Trigger (CBT), an enhanced 2-stage trigger that’s adjustable. 
Best of all, these Summit Rangers are made in the US of A!
All these features add up to a solid rifle that’s more than ready for shredding paper targets dispatching small game.

No Bryan.  :-\   ;D   ;)      I got this gun because it looked like it would be good for hunting and would standup to abuse.   I did not know anything about this gun when I got mine but it has become my favorite hunting rifle.       Best Wishes  -  Tom

I am 50-75 shots in so far on the Summit Ranger. Still dieseling some. I am still trying to figure out a hold it likes. I sanded the edge around the opening in the trigger guard to the adjustment screw some. I also just realized that the rear site notch portion can freely tilt up and down along its wind-age axis. I makeshift stuck a piece of thin cardboard to fill the gap that allows it to do that.  Does anyone else's rear site have this problem?

Otherwise I am liking my first venture into the break barrel world so far. Definitely packs a punch.

If my sights have play, i shim them with a piece of electrical tape.  Steel open sights on a price point gum usually have someplay.  Plastic is so much cheaper and easier to mould, but it's plastic.  Harder to take precise aim point with a fat plastic sight.  Thin plastic sights break off too easy, so yoi deal with it and make due.  I'd rather have steel and have to shim.

I definitely like the steel over plastic sites.

Anybody have tips on holding NP2 rifles? Some say loose like typical springers, some say hold them firm. *shrug*  I am getting some rather large patterns still at about 9m (my basement limit).  I'm new to these guns. I am so used to pumpers haha.

I was never able to get decent iron sight groups with my B19 because of the slop in the rear sight. Might have to skip that step.

I did not shoot my Summit Ranger a whole lot with the open sights.  I did some but... not a lot.  I seemed to shoot OK with them... but... I am pushing 70 years old and I shoot a lot better with a scope these days.   
OK...I secured the movement of the rear sight with Super Glue.  Easy Fix.

Corey.......Keep us posted here on your new Summit Ranger. I am excited to hear about your new rifle !

 I hold and shoot all my springers the same way. I pull them, into my shoulder, mildly snug. The fore-stock rests on but is not tightly gripped in my off-hand.  The trigger pull can change from gun to gun but I the hold stays the same.  I shoot either off-hand or I brace, the palm of my off-hand, on a walk-thru doorway and rest the rifle in the vee that is formed between my thumb and fingers.  When I shoot while hunting, I will shoot off-hand or I will rest my off-hand the same way on a tree branch or tree trunk.   I never bench shoot.    I practice my shooting in the same manner that I would use to hunt... out in the forest behind my home.    In am lucky..I guess...I have never had any issues shooting any of my springers....not from day one. 
Shooting them just comes natural to me.           Best Wishes  -  Tom

I got a chance to shim the rear site so we shall see if that helps.

What groups are you getting at what distances Tom? What pellets? I currently have CPHP and Polymags to play with.

Thanks for the help guys! Just want to figure out whether I have a bad one or not before the 30day Pyramid window closes.

Corey ....I'm primarily a air gun hunter and I don't do a lot of paper target shooting unless I am checking the zero on a scope. I shot a dime sized group at 25 yards right after I got my gun and zeroed in the scope. I had maybe 25 shots thru the gun when I shot this group. It was a cold winter day and the temp was about -15 F.  I shoot 14.3gr 22cal Crosman Pirahanas in this gun. I have a Birchwood Casey 44 Mag double spinner that is set out at 50 yards. The upper spinner is about 3 inches and the lower one is about 4 1/2 inches.  I can hit the upper spinner, on most shots with my gun.  This is the only picture that I have taken of a shot group with the Summit Ranger that I still have on file. I shot his group standing with my off-hand braced on a doorway.          Best Wishes  -  Tom

P.S.    Please feel free to post any pictures or information on your gun here in this review. You input will be greatly appreciated by all and by me in particular.  There is very little information and reviews on this gun. When I bought mine there was none at all.  One of the Admin/Moderators here in the GTA requested that I do a review on this gun. I did so, after I had hunted and shot my gun for a while and had a feel for the gun.

O.K. Corey... :)...I now have a recent photo for you. ( Of a shot group with my 22cal Crosman Summit Ranger NP 2 rifle. )   

I shot this group today at aprox 6:30pm. ( after I got back from fishing all day )  The temp was 83 F with 74% humidity. No wind.   I shot this group while standing in the woods by my house. I braced my off-hand on a tree branch and rested the rifle in the Vee between my thumb and fingers. The target was placed in a tree that was paced off out to 35 yards. The shot angle was slightly up at about a 3 degree incline.  I was shooting 14.3gr Crosman Piranha 22cal hunting pellets.  I took six shots at the target and the shot group could be covered by a quarter.  I have not shot this gun much since the end of hunting season last February.  At that time... the temp was -15 F with 10% or less humidity.   The scope was off just a tad to the right of center. That is understandable considering the big difference in temperature that this rifle was last sighted in to. 

I don't do this type of shooting very often and I hope this is of some help to you.

My Best Wishes  -  Tom

That is a nice group Tom! Thank you for posting!

I did these groups yesterday evening. 10 shots each. Not as good as yours at a shorter distance. I am still dieseling though. Would that affect accuracy much? One front stock screw was a little less snug than the other two as well so tightened that this morning and I'll try another group when I get a chance. Pulled out the Bluestreak for a quick comparison/help with considering shooter skill. Feels so thin compared to the Ranger haha.

I am wondering whether I should post this in the Crosman section as well. Maybe others can give feedback as to whether I need to do a gun exchange or not vs I just need to practice and maybe get a scope.

Speaking of scopes, which one do you have?
