I got one of these for Christmas in about 1970. It was death on meadowlarks, crows, and the occassional rabbit. Still have that little gun somewhere, I nailed (yes nailed) a white belt to it for a shoulder strap. Hey it was the 70’s! Good little gun to learn to hunt with.

The first thing you see when you look at this gun is the stock.Its made of the same wood as you find on other Crosman guns ,but it appears to be cut from a board and then a round over bit was used to give it a more round shape.It looks cheap! The cocking knob is a little crude. The safety (push the cocking knob up after cocking) is crude. The action is attached to the stock with hose clamps from a 66 mustang heater hose! The rotary magazine is ch- oh yeah lots of 60,s springers from Europe had them . Ok this gun was definitely made on a budget. It also sold for $26 and change in 1967 that is about a dollar less than the 760 debuted for the previous year. It was available in 177 and 22 caliber, its not a bb gun. Thats good. It is 36 3/4″ long with a 14″ length of pull, its full size again “good”. Actually this gun shoots well. Its accurate, it feels good in your hands.Its a little weak at 480 to 500 fps,but its fun to shoot.If I want to have some fun plinking its a good one to grab. Maybe if Crosman put a better stock on it and sealed it better and made the cocking knob and safety better and gut rid of the hose clamps it would have been more well received and sell better than it did. But then it would compete with the 180 or worse yet the 160. I guess that is why they made it as they did. Poor kids want to shoot full size pellet guns too.
