Yeah, i know
I love my 77 but it doesnt feel natural when i shoulder it. It wasnt designed for a scope (97 was) and i have a long neck, long arms and narrow shoulders.
If i was to keep it i would need to make a new stock anyway.
Its not a bad gun, but for hunting any accuracy gain is an advantage. The crosman has the potential to be easier to shoot accurately.
77 is also heavy, a shorter, lighter, point and shoot hunting rifle will get the job done easier. Maybe ill keep the 77k anyway and use it to slowly lead poisen the sycamore tree at the bottom of our garden LOL.
