Crosman MK-177 ... Anyone Own One??? ... MK-177 VS M4-177 Performance???

I'm very interested in learning how the real world performance of the MK-177 compares to an M4-177.

I currently own a M417 equipped with aftermarket peep sights.
And, a M4-177 with a 6X telescopic sight.
I was considering purchasing another M4-177 to mount at least a 10X optic along with some
performance modifications.
In an attempt to approach 600fps with a 7.9gr pellet with no more than 10-strokes of compression.

To this end, I've been patiently waiting for the MK-177 to make its debut and save me the trouble
of having to modify an M4-177.
So far, the postings I've read of the MK-177 by very new owners has not been encouraging.

Wondering, whether the MK-177 produces significantly greater velocity - or not.

Reviews I've Found So Far

June 1 2013, 3:05 PM 

This is all I've been able to find.
For me, two reviews aren't enough information to come to a definitive conclusion..
However, from what I've seen so far,  it's looking a little better for the MK-177.

Way sturdier and is more powerful I think than the m4-177.
I was really hoping someone on the YELLOW might be able to shed some more insight into my MK-177 vs M4-177 question.

M4-177 is a 760 in a cheap suit... MK-177 is just in a cheap tuxedo...

June 1 2013, 5:05 PM 

I'd rather have the NP-177 over either of those given such a limited choice of options...

http://www.crosman.com/airguns/rifles/break-barrel/30005

Or the MTR77 which looks similar to both of them and is probably an TR77 NP in a suit... lol!

Re: M4-177 is a 760 in a cheap suit ... My M4 Works for Me Practicing for My Job

June 1 2013, 5:32 PM 

You are correct about the M4-177 ... tarted-up 760 ... but, the inexpensive Crosman M4 works well-enough for me.

In-fact, among all the officers in the group I was firing with ... I did the best.
I'm 61 years old - just celebrated my latest birthday on the 12JAN2013.
I can reasonably attribute my success at out-shooting my fellow officers directly to the
practice afforded by my M417 with Leaper's Match sights.

For the last few weeks, I've been making a concerted effort to fire a minimum of four-clips
per evening with my iron sighted M417.
My efforts have paid-off and justify the reason why I purchased a Crosman M417/M4-177.

I would have to agree, it is a nice training tool

June 1 2013, 10:23 PM 

I would be interested in trying the MTR77NPC
break barrel. Wonder how the adjustable two stage trigger is.

My M417 at 10 meters it is a great shooter,
I wish I had it when I was shooting NRA
high power matches (service rifle class)
Would be better if I could get it to 14 pounds
like my AR was.

Here is a target I shot for a match on another
forum on April 14th. They have a 20 minute time limit for 20
shots standing. I was shooting on 10 pumps, I always take
two breaths after getting on target. My last shot,
as I was releasing the second breath, the
sight was almost to the 6:00 position and
my timer went off. 19 shots down range, one "saved round"
190 8X of 200 shooting 8.2gr Meisterkugeln
[linked image]
At 10 meters, they go where ya call them. I always use
the same magazine cavity when shooting these matches, some
have said their point of impact changes across the magazine,
cant say I have noticed it, but got into the routine of doing it.
