Well there is certainly a lot of mystery around air gun oil but truth be known, what you have will work.  Biggest thing is, DON'T over lube your gun.  A drop of oil goes a long, long way.

BTW, glad you got the issue resolved.  Now you can move on to more serious stuff like your first mod.

Just got back from walmart, went to go check out the other guns before I returned mine. Had the guy come over and take the silly plastic locks off the rack so I could check them all out. I looked at all five of the guns they had, every single one has the dings and scratches along the barrel and pump rail. I decided I'd be better off keeping the gun, because at least it shots very accurately, no defects in performance that I've noticed.

Sounds like the entire shipment got damaged somehow. What bothers me the most is the rust. What the hay is up with that? I would return it just for the rust and get one from Amazon instead, but it is your call of course. Good luck with it if you decide to keep it.

Interesting, I just thought it lacked the 1337 label on the box. I'm still very much a noob at this. I'm going to assume this gun will still accept all available mods that makes the 1337 so popular? *crosses fingers*

Yes it will.  :-*
The only thing i'v heard was the grips are a little bit different.

Yup, its a walmart model...it looks the same, but it isn't....people will buy it because it "looks" the same.  Made in China crap.  That's why it has a different name - not an American Classic any more.

sooo sad.

Just like with Schwinn bicycles.  The ones at walmart are NOT the same as the ones at bike shops.  HUGE difference.  Yet, people who don't know what a quality bike is, but knows the name Schwinn from the past, will say, "why would I pay 500 bux for a schwinn from a bike shop when I can get it at walmart for 300 bux?  Same bike."

Not.

at first glance i thought i was sporting a new 1377c,but when i examined it.....model # is pc77.
so i done a little research and found a thread explaining the differences between the 2.
i called crosman,they stat the pc77 is a model code to specify built for walmart sales,and nothing on the gun is different from the beloved 1377c .

I was thinking the same thing...Walmart has VERY BAD ways of dealing with manufacturers.  They tell them, "We'll pay you x.xx dollars per piece, and you will provide YYY pieces per year.  If you can't meet the price and quantity, we'll carry another product."  Most manufacturers will do it, because if they don't they're [/youtube] in the biggest retail store in the world.  How do meet the demand?  They produce a "special model" which is usually sub-standard.  Ruger does this with the 10/22 as well.  I don't like Walmart, and will not shop there.

Sorry for the rant....

x2, I hate walmart. I worked for a company that use to do work for them on an a national level. I never go there. stores are dirty, emplyees rude and barely speek english" around here anyway"

Yup, and why would Crosman "label something different" just so it can be known as a walmart special, if it's the same as another product?  They took the American Classic name, removed it, had it made in China, (cheaper), sold it to walmart (cheaper) so walmart can carry the brand. 

Is the walmart name fashionable, or does it mean quality to people??   "yeah, baby, this is a Rolex Subwalmarter."  Um, I don't think so.

Just checked out the packaging in walmart. its says made in the usa with some foreign components. So atleast the QC should be done here.

As I said in another post. They will all be designated as PC77 sometime in the near future.
