    I have exactly the same problem. Don't have the receipt and Walmart quit carrying the gun so can't exchange it. Must of had a bunch of problems with this gun since most stores don't carry it anymore. Called Crosman and they aren't much help and say they don't work on this gun. Guess they must of seen a lot of problems with it also.

    Took it to the local gun shop but they want $50 just to look at it plus whatever it costs to repair. Not worth it.

    So now I have a very diappointed little boy who got this for Christmas and only got to shoot it a couple times and now it doesn't work.

    Very disappointed with Crosman.

    If anyone knows how to fix this please email me at

If the trigger is adjustable set it more coarse to hook the piston rod. Make sure trigger is loose and will reset to it foremost position. Check trigger spring and pin for ease op operation. Lastly check if piston rod did not turn inside cylinder so hook is turned away from trigger.

How do you load crosman quest 1000. never owned a break barrel gun before

You load one pellet at a time when the barrel is broken open, the chamber is in the break of the barrel. One stroke, load, close, shoot, keeps you in shape. the old Sheridans, 10 pumps, really kept you in shape.

Reset to factory settings

Yes it is the same, it has the same barrel inside as a cross hair only you have a red dot. So just like you said, count the clicks and take it half way. You could do it with a vice, put a target up at 20 or 25 yards, depending on the pistol, lock it in a vice, shoot the gun a few times, and then put the cross hairs, dot, on the group, then you can fine tune from there. Check it out. And the bent barrel rifle, I had to stand on a barrel once to straighten it, actually I was jumping up and down on it, but I got it straight.

Pelet rifle won't fire

Does it leak out?, pump up?, trigger release anything? What are the symptoms? Anything stuck in the bore? I think Crosman will repair your gun at a fixed price, just get a hold of them and get permission to send it back.

The piston doesnt lock on the trigger. if trigger is adjustable set adjustment more coarse. Check also sure that trigger mechanism is in forward position and not stuck halfway. If still not hooking see if piston hooh and trigger catch not damaged. very seldom the piston will twist inside making it impossible to hook, just realign piston.
