I bought mine in 1990. It was one of the originally- made in Spain rifles. 23 years later, it still shoots like the best of them. Strong, and reliable, it has a classic look reminiscent of the first old school air rifles from long ago. I’ve have had great moments in Scouting competitions with this air rifle.

I have had my 3100 for over twenty years now with thousands of rounds shot through it. Great gun overall. The FPS advertised when purchased was 600 fps if I’m not mistaken so the previous post about it shooting 585 would make since. This model to my knowledge never was advertised to shoot in the 800-1000 range. Modern ammo may add some though. Still shooting strong to this day.

Bought new S/N 51155 just finished rebuilding it due to lack of use (<100 rounds). Takes a tune very well and is highly recommended. Smoother than I could ever imagine after home tune. If parts are needed look for Cometa 100. Purchased rear sight parts and new piston seal from T.W. Chambers and the Cometa parts had the same mold markings as the parts removed. Easily shoots nickel sized groups at 15M with the original sights. FYI…Crosman has a recall and will buy back any 3100 due to unintentional discharge issues even while on safe.

I still have one that I purchased new when they were manufactured. (SN 23361) It is still the most accurate air rifle I have. Back when I purchased it, scopes did not work with it because of the unique recoil of the piston air design. I know that is not as much of an issue today. With the hooded site, I could hit something the size of a nickle at around 25 yards. Snails were my favorite targets. My RWS 34 never came close to it in accuracy.(SN 01049048)

I have had this gun for about 10 years. A buddy of mine gave it to me when we were in our late teens cause his dad said he couldnt have it anymore. The outside of the barrel is covered in surface rust and it has been through a garage fire. I put a gamo 4X32 scope on it and have fired THOUSANDS of rounds through it. I can hit a stop sign pole at 35 yards easy. Still has a great kill score on robins at about the same range. Due to the age of the gun at this point I cant give it a 5 because of diminished accuracy and power. But if you have the oppertunity to find one (about 40 bucks on ebay) buy it for a great backyard plinker. Hitting groups of 1/2″ at about 10 meters even after all these years and damage done to it. FPS is unknown.

The Crosman 3100 that I have was left outside on an open porch for over 3 years. I cleaned the rust out of the barrel and believe it or not it still groups at less than a inch at 10m. Wood stock and steel still look pretty good. Try this with most any newer gun.

A very well made spring piston 177 cal., single shot barrel breaking pellet gun imported from Spain 1987-1990 The high quality finishes both stock and bluing more of a deep dark blue could be black only found on upper end and imported air guns, Crossman did there research on this one very nice, the fps is not what I have been reading (850 to 1000) the gun serial number 4**4 is shooting a constant 565 fps could be to the age 20 plus years old all original, but shoots a 1/2� 5 shot group at 10m I�ll give this gun 5 out of 5 for looks, constancy, feel, and durability this is a great old keeper
