Rated 4 out of 5 by Airgunner Accurate, and good fun for the $
I recently purchased the American Classic to introduce some new "population control" measures in my back yard. (Translation: rabbits and squirrels were having their way with my wife's prized garden!)
So far so good. This gun is really a great value. While it is obviously not as accurate as a rifle (I have a Gamo Varmint Hunter for longer range and/or bigger critters...), I find it groups reasonably well at 10-15 yards with good quality ammo. I've been using RWS super HPs, and they work very well with this gun. I haven't used any points in it yet, but I suspect they would improve accuracy even more.
I agree with the previous reviewer that it is kind of a pain to have to spend so much time pumping this gun to fire it, but hey - ya get what ya pay for, right? And for the money, you can't beat the muzzle velocity, accuracy and small form factor (something to consider when using in the wilds of suburbia as I am).
Also, for the person asking about scope mounts - Crosman makes a mount called the "459MT dovetail intermount" that fits this gun. I have not used it (although I'm considering it), but it looks like a pretty good little system.

Rated 2 out of 5 by kyletm boring gun
this is a good gun but it is not fun to shoot. if youre planning to go out and shoot with this gun, you will spend most of your time pumping it. 1 shot per 2 minutes is about all you can get out of this gun. it is well built and highly accurate for a pistol but its like shooting a musket. i get bored after a few shots and i bet you would too.
