Great gun and built in America. This semi-auto CO2 BB rifle will throw a lot of shots downrange on just one tank. It’s a real CO2 gun, making it very fun to shoot. Steel BBs are about as expensive as you can get when it comes to air gun ammo, so this gun has lots of going for it.

Crosman Comrade AK-Style – Guntype
This is a CO2 powered air rifle. CO2 air gun use 12 gram carbon dioxide cartridge (CO2) as the power source instead of the spring piston. (For more on 5 types of air rifles you need to know before buying, see this post.)
The barrel is smoothbore so it makes the BB travel smoothly inside the barrel, no need to worry about wearing your barrel over time since there is no groove inside the bore. (For more on things you should know about air rifle barrels before buying, see this post.)
The caliber (the internal diameter of the bore, measure in inches) is .177 (4.5 millimeter ). This gun is a repeater so you can save lots of reloading time in shooting.
The stock is made of synthetic stock. Unlike wood stock, a synthetic stock isn’t affected by outside temperature and doesn’t need any maintenance . (For more on the in-depth comparison between synthetic and wood stock, see this post.)
The stock shoulder is removable so people of all size can comfortably shoot Crosman Comrade AK-177. Furthermore, the magazine can be removed, too: you can use it as a storage compartment for BBs or extra CO2 cartridges.
The Crosman Comrade uses BB as its only source of ammunition. BB is dirt cheap: you can buy thousands rounds of premium BB for just few bucks to shoot all week long.
The front sight is fixed whereas the rear sight is adjustable for windage (alow you to adjust the sight left and right) and for elevation ( allow you to adjust the sight up and down).
In case you want to put scope or red dot on this gun, the rail is designed in Picatinny style to help you do just that. Compared to weaver rail, a Picatinny rail shared plenty of common characteristics but there is a series of ridges locating in precise intervals along the rail. This type of rail gives you lots of benefit:
First, you have more mounting option and you can swap scope from one gun to another and use different scope in one air rifle as well. And yes, no more worrying about tube length, eye relief, etc since you can place a scope ring at any place you want.

Crosnman Comrade has the velocity up to 600 FPS with BBs. This is high-end velocity compared to other BBs on the market and gives you more choices on shooting indoors or outdoors. Besides, Chrony test shows that this gun delivers 594.5 FPS, 601.1 FPS and 602.1 FPS with 10 pumps, so close to the advertised speed so you can rest assured that your air gun will perform as expected.
