Crosman Ch2009 Sporter Class Air Rifle Approved For Use In Competition
By the National Three Position Air Rifle Council.
ROCHESTER, New York –-(AmmoLand.com)- Crosman Corporation, long known for innovation and quality in the shooting sports, announced today that its Challenger PCP competition air rifle has been approved for use as a Sporter Class air rifle by the National Three Position Air Rifle Council.
Director of the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP), Gary Anderson, said that “Council approval of the Crosman Challenger PCP as a legal Sporter Class air rifle means that the Council has determined that it fulfills all basic rulebook standards for price, caliber, velocity, weight, configuration, dimensions, sights and adjustment capabilities.”
According to Crosman Director of Engineering, Ed Schultz, much consideration was given to improving quality and adding leading edge features to the Challenger PCP.
“We kept the adjustable stock and ambidextrous bolt handle, but completely redesigned the rest of the air rifle with all the elements competitors are looking for. They include a two-stage match grade adjustable trigger, the use of high pressure air, providing for more consistent velocity, and a Lothar Walther™ barrel,” he said. “People competing at this level want a gun with features to improve the fit of the gun, while still adhering to the stringent rules of the sport. We’ve not only created a gun that offers better ergonomics for all shooters, but is more affordable than any of its competitors. Adds Schultz, “Some popular features of the Challenger PCP are the dual fuel capability which requires less pumping to achieve 2000 psi, and the patent pending bolt mechanism that allows for ambidextrous use of the gun.”
Crosman will introduce the completely new Challenger PCP at retail and through its Easy Program, a special youth organization marketing program, in August, 2009. The gun will be offered both with sights as the CH2009S, and without sights as the CH2009. Crosman also offers a full complement of filling devices including both pumps and adaptors for pressurizing the gun.
