Gun rates a score of “5” just for it’s collectors value. Crosman made these only in 1963-64 and they are pretty scarce in good condition. I just bought one like new in a worn box with paperwork for $140 in June 2010. The gun is a spring-piston design and is cocked by pulling a handle out of the backstrap of the grip and pulling up. There are three “positions” where the cocking lever catches, the first is just a safety catch that will not let lever fly back, second is low power, third is high power. The gun (currently) is not very powerful. I have not chron’ed it but it has a hard time going through two layers of cardboard. It may shoot stronger once I oil up the 40-year old piston seal. I give this gun a 1 as a shooter and a 5 as an oddity. Every serious Crosman collector has this gun on theri search list.

Very old school BB gun here. BBs are loaded into a hole just behind the front sight which has a sliding metal cover. You tilt the gun barrel up and pull out the cocking handle on the back of the grip. Has 3 power settings: Weak, weaker, and weakest. Rear sight is adjustable for windage and elevation. Easy to repair. Remove the 6(?) flathead screws and the gun comes apart like a clamshell. The receiver is a separate part w/i the shell consisting of two tubes. One tube contains the mainspring while the other acts as the barrel with a hole on top for the breech. Even though you will have trouble putting a hole through the bottom of an aluminum can at .1″ its still an interesting piece of history. If you like collecting or plinking, pick it up. If you are more into the hunting or target aspect of airguns then you may want to pass.
