I bought the 2300S as a replacement for my long lost and lamented Crosman Mk 1. (My primary gun is a Ruger Mk II.) It arrived with no front sight post, and a rear sight that would not mount horizontally. Crosman wound up sending me a front sight, then a new rear sight, plus a 2300T rear sight (they were courteous and prompt!) The new rear sight mounted fine. I did have to reset the muzzle piece to make the front sight vertical.
Overall: It shoots very precisely. Shooting from a bench rest, after sighting in I was able to group my shots satisfactorily in the 10 ring at 25′, using Beeman match wadcutter pellets. Shooting offhand, I found the balance and feel of the pistol pleasing, if a little light. The stock grips fit my hand satisfactorily. Unfortunately,though,its feel is not very similar to my Ruger’s. I usually shoot about 50 pellets before changing CO2 cylinders, and do not experience any drop off in performance. I have kept the pressure setting a maximum. The safety is very positive, but awkwardly placed; I find myself using my off hand to set it and release it. The bolt makes cocking the pistol very easy, although loading pellets into the small receiver opening is quite a challenge.
Trigger: Not great. It has an imprecise two-stage pull, and does not release very crisply. The trigger itself is a narrow piece of stamped metal. I am looking for a trigger shoe for it. I am still playing with the adjustment. I vaguely remember the Mk I having a better trigger, but who knows?
Sights: The Williams rear sight is delightful; I have never used one that could be dialed in so precisely. However, the notch assembly is surprisingly loose, and can be wiggled alarmingly; this seems to not affect the accuracy, however. My personal preference is for a narrower notch. I haven’t tried shooting with the 2300T rear sight that Crosman sent me, since I suspect front post height is not well matched to it. But it seems to be a good sight; my aging eyes appreciate the white dots flanking the notch.
While I suspect that the cheaper 2300T would have been perfectly satisfactory for my needs, I do like the 2300T, and consider it a fine pistol overall, and a good value. I am also satisfied with the service I have received from Pyramid (from whom I bought the pistol) and from Crosman.
