I know what Pyramyd Air advertises but Crosman puts 950 on the box containing the rifle. Either way, I just wanted to be sure my numbers were close to what others are getting. Thank for your reply.
Wow, sorry I rubbed salt into the wound. I just wanted to be sure I was in the correct ball-park since this is my first 22 cal. I chose the Vantage after looking up the parts diagram on the Crosman website and found that the Vantage gas spring is the same part number as the Nitro Venom's gas spring and several others (I quit checking).As to the velocity you mentioned, there's one thing I can think of that you might try. Crosman sometimes sends out dry pistons in their guns. 1 drop of RMCOIL in the compression chamber (opposite of the barrel) may improve things a fair bit. The manual recommends this after every 250 shots, so I do it. After 5 - 10 shots the dieseling should be done and you can see if you think the velocity improves. I had a 17 cal that was dry and it improved 80 FPS after 1 drop of RMCOIL.
Man I got my Vantage ( also a Remington branded one ) out of a pawn shop so I don't know if the trigger is stock, bit I like it a lot more han the two-stage one on my Kodiak.
