In the new Canadian Tire flyer, Nov 22 to 28, it looks like all crosman guns are 40% off. If not all, most. I'm really hoping that the M4 177 goes on sale (it would be close to $60 plus tax). :D

Unfortunately it's only on things $64.99 (Crosman 357) and above, so no pellets or co2. But I'm really hoping it applies to the M4! :mrgreen: I'm going to call tomorrow and ask, and post the answer here! :mrgreen:

Hmm this could be a good chance for me to grab my first rifle, do they have any worthy rifles?

Thanks for the heads-up.

It's a really good price for a 357 - Super accurate and hefty gun if it's anything like my Vigilante, and should have a place in everybody's collection.

Lucky OP, the M4-177 is on sale for $60. I am almost pushed over the fence on this since I am in the market for a cheap multi-pump BB shooter, but I really don't want any military-styled rifle. Need to resist the urge for another 2 months or so until I get my PAL and I can import some cheaper, more powerful BB guns from the USA.

Didn't look like all the Crosman guns were on sale either, even the expensive ones. Would have been a good chance to get a 1377 for a more reasonable price closer to what it costs in the US.

As did I! The last one in Kelowna too. I feel like my Umarex XBG has a bit more "oomph" though...still a fun shooter!

Yup, all the Crosman guns are on sale. I considered picking up a TR77 for $120 and plugging the bleed hole to bring it up to its full potential (yes, I have my PAL/rPal), but the wife would tear a strip off my hide if I brought home two guns...lol

Get while the gettin's good! 8)

I asked today whether or not the Benjamin airguns were discounted but was told that it pretty much was only the Crosman. I found that the staff at Cdn Tire pretty dense. When I asked young man at the Sports counter about Crosman airguns he tried to direct me to the Hardware counter :roll: I guess he doesn't know the difference between an air tool and an airgun.

But I did notice the Crosman 357's selling for $38.99, great price. And the Crosman TR77Nps for $119.99 looked interesting.

I've come to realize that I need to educate myself fully before looking for anything at CT. No word of a lie, it seems like everyone that works there (at ANY of the dozens of stores I've been to) is clueless about the products they sell. I've only experienced good customer service ONCE while shopping there. Maybe is just my crappy luck, but that's been my experience. At least they have awesome sales... :D

...and yeah, the TR77 (the nitro-piston version no less) for that price is pretty damn decent.

bought 2 crosman guns from CT during the summer, the 357 and the M4...not disappointed at all, great buys at those prices, these two are a must if you're going to have multiple airguns

Took advantage of the sale at local CT and got a M4-177 for $59, didnt expect too much but it really is a rugged lil armstrong air rifle, a great plinker just for fun, and great in store service, I was asked every 5 mins it seemed if I could be helped with anything else , and most times by the gent who looked after the firearms section, and I wasn't even shopping in his department...hats off to you whoever you are for doing the jobs of 3 ppl , this was in greenwood N.S. BTW.

Lucky you to get a 357 at that price, I have tried 3 CT plus the one I work in and nobody seem's to carry it :( . Any way we have a lot of student working and yes many times they do not know enough, that 's why you should search for the grey hair man or women they know more, I'm in car parts, don't ask me about camping I don't know that much, but ask me about alternator or brakes then you will get answer 8) . Cause my hair are grey and white. :lol:

I guess I am lucky the CT I go to is where my friend works who is from the forces and he and his buddy there open and play with everything they sell at sporting goods and he is a airgunner, powder gunner, firearms instructor, competative shooter and knife and gunsmith...so he does know his poop.
But yes I am sure he would be lost in household aisle.
I assume it is his miltiary background and his gratitude for having a job but he is the hardest working person in the store.
I will be in CT today to say hi and see what his recommendation of the week is...its dangerous because he will keep stuff aside to show me. Hard to say no sometimes!...thats my excuse and I am sticking to it.
Happy sale hunting everyone.
