Chrony on the rifle that started it all for me, a Crosman 102
« on: September 11, 2021, 03:32:53 PM »
I bought this rifle as my first air rifle after retirement 6 years ago.  Got me started collecting.  Iíve never had it apart it worked perfectly from the start. Held 2 pump for a year! The walnut stock is about as good as it gets.  Shooting Crosman Hollow Points 14.3 grain.

Pumps.        FPS

4.                506
5.                544
6.                603
7.                634

I really donít like to go past 6 pumps.  Pretty loud after 4.  I like 3 pumps for my backyard.

We're all in the same boat, why're you trying to make holes?

I didn't know they were that powerful.

You don't even see stocks like that on high end firearms these days.

So sad the days when companies really took pride in what they sold are mostly gone. That air rifle is phenomenal.

A little off subject but I've found Ruger to have great customer service, they'll send new springs to tune up your

Firearms free of charge. Great way to do business.

Cheers,
