As you may know here in the UK CO2 guns were banned between 1968 and 1998 due to our bizarre gun laws, for this period CO2 guns were under the same classification as machine guns, but you still came across them from time to time. This must be one of the most beautiful pistols ever made and a true repeater. In recent years several have come out of attics but seals are worn and test firing just finishes them off – spares for Crosman here in the UK are simply not available (even for modern Crosmans – cannot get spare mags for Crosman T4 for love nor money). Now that they are legal again i would love to own one a Crosman 600 but they are really rare here in UK – hens teeth.

If there was ever a classic air pistol, the Crosman 600 is it! It’s the gun others are compared to.Early autoloader! Crosman’s 600 first hit the streets in 1960. That was the time when Crosman powerlets had a bottle-cap seal that leaked, so CO2 guns weren’t well-received. But the 600 lasted through those times and into the era when reliable powerlets came along. It was a true semiauto, where each pull of the trigger fired the gun. It held 10 .22 caliber pellets in line on the left side of the action in a built-in magazine. Linear mags have a reputation for poor feeding, but as long as you used domed pellets or wadcutters, the 600 fed well most of the time. Lightning fast! The 600 has a feed arm that moves to the left so the next pellet can be shoved in, then back to the right in line with the barrel. A bolt probe then jumps forward, stuffing the pellet into the breech. All this happens super-quick. If the gun ever goes full-auto (shooting all pellets as long as the trigger is held down), it dumps all 10 shots so fast that it sounds like one loud shot! I’m guessing the cyclic rate is close to 2000 rpm! And, going full-auto was one of the 600’s little quirks. In fact, people used to modify it to do that until they realized that it didn’t sound like a machine gun at all – just a loud air pistol, because they couldn’t distinguish the individual shots firing. Not powerful The stock 600 gets about 350 f.p.s. with medium-weight pellets. It’s also a gas hog, getting only about 30-33 shots per powerlet. The rest of the gas has to operate the mechanism. A lot of folks attach bulk CO2 tanks and long barrels to shoot hundreds of shots at 500+ f.p.s. The flip side. Excellent trigger and great accuracy! The trigger is very light and almost crisp. The little mushiness is hardly noticeable, since almost everyone shoots the gun as fast as possible. If you take your time, a 600 can be very accurate. Crosman really knew how to rifle a barrel, and they put the very best into this pistol. It’s as accurate as a Crosman Mark I. In demand! A used 600 will bring $225 in shooting condition and $275 in excellent condition in the box. They shoot so well that they are in demand.

i really like this pistol. its well made, well balanced and is reliable with the correct pellets. they are getting hard to find now, and they hold their price. crosman put the pistol through a great deal of testing before releasing it, and is probably the reason why its so reliable. if your a do it yourself man, i strongly suggest you get the manual by dean fletcher, as this book explains about the 3 variants and how to strip it down and change seals. if your unsure, leave it to the experts. spares are getting a little hard to find now, but are out there, and seals are readily available. the pellets must be flat head, as the magazine is in-line and they sit behind each other. I find that crosman match pells and daisy max speed (in the blui-sh tin) are the most reliable, but i dont think daisy make that pellet anymore. all i can say is, if you get a chance to buy one, grab it and try for yourself, you wont be dissapointed.
