Crosman CG pics and info request
« on: February 16, 2018, 02:13:14 PM »
Hi All,
New member andyjoe sent me these pics to post of a gun he's trying to ID and learn more about.
He had questions about resealing, compatible CO2 bottles, etc.

I am trying to find out what I have and what I need to do to get it working. I haven't tried it out yet, I wanted some direction as to what I should do first. Also looking for a manual and/or parts breakdown. Appreciate any help you might offer.

Thanks!

Itís called the Model 123 (100 CG, SHOOT-A-SCORE) 1946-1950. .177  You will need a 4.5 Oz. Cylinder, and fitting used to connect to gun.   I think many? of these were used in galleries and connected with hoses?  I believe these Cylinders can be filled with adaptors, but this beyond my pay grade. You have the high comb stock, diablo cocking knob both are not common and desirable.

  I bought a .22 CG four years ago for my 60th birthday present to myself. ;)  Had to reseal it, a pretty simple job.  Uses most of the same seals as the 101, 102.  I got a 3.5 ounce paintball tank with an on/off valve and adapter from a fellow named Peter Ruut.  Had to beat the bushes a bit to find it and, if I remember right, this was the last adapter he had. 

  The gun is a very good shooter.  Capable of some pretty tight groups and shoots around 550 fps.  The original tank still contains CO2 but I have never tried to use it.

Are those rear sights that bolt on the back of the receiver and reach back ever found on pump 100/101s?

Do you have available a closer photograph of that rear sight?

Here are some more pics. I've never seen these sights on a 101/100, but I'm not an expert.

WOW!

Thanks for the photos!

That's a really cool looking sight.
From where I'm sitting it looks like the flow through bolt slides through the bridge beneath the aperture.

That sight set up looks very similar/identical even - to the other ones in the photos - just with a a larger aperture.

I really like the way it's fastened to the rear of the rifle like that.
Almost like how they drilled and tapped the 1949 101s for the bolt retaining bracket.

A sight like that could totally be drilled and tapped to any 101 with a flow through bolt.
