Bloomfield, NY -( The Crosman 2250XL “Ratcatcher” has achieved the coveted gold medal in the Best CO2 Rifle category of the UK’s 2014 Airgun Shooter Awards.

Already a much-loved model by airgunners who appreciate its quick handling and carbine attributes, the latest award comes after the introduction of the new, longer-barrelled ‘XL Ratty’ – a model which has increased the appeal of the established 2250 range and helped elevate it from the bronze medal accolade it also achieved in the prestigious awards of the previous year.

“The 2250 is standard kit for serious shooters and the XL version takes the experience to another level,” said Martin Stelling, General Manager for Crosman Europe. “We are honored to receive the recognition from Airgun Shooter Magazine.”

Airgun Shooter Magazine was launched in the UK in January, 2010 and was awarded best new magazine of the year by The Association of Circulation Executives (ACE) – the print media industry’s Oscar equivalent. Now considered by many as the leading magazine on the subject, it’s available not only at UK newsstands, but globally by way of its interactive digital issues. Building on the title’s instant success, the Airgun Shooter Awards were introduced in 2011 and give readers the opportunity to vote for their favourite airguns in 10 categories, including the overall airgun of the year. The awards are now considered highly prestigious by both airgunners and the airgun trade alike.
