BLOOMFIELD, New York – -(Ammoland.com)- Up your game with the fastest, most unique hybrid hunting weapon available! Generating more speed and power than a crossbow while being safer and easier to operate, the Pioneer Airbow by Crosman is a revolution of traditional archery equipment.
Hunters who enjoy the varied experiences that come with rifles, bows and crossbows will instantly gravitate to the Pioneer Airbow for its power, convenience and flexibility.
Filled to 3000 PSI and firing full sized arrows, the integrated pressure regulator delivers eight consistent full power shots at a blazing 450 FPS. The convenience of a trigger firing mechanism, top cocking lever with only two pounds of cocking force and compact profile means anyone, regardless of size or strength, can handle the Benjamin Pioneer Airbow. With no cocking rope to lose or tangle, the Pioneer Airbow is especially safe for treestand use.

Jim Shockey, professional hunter and host of “Jim Shockey’s UNCHARTED” and “Jim Shockey’s Hunting Adventures”, is excited about this new entry into the archery market.
“The confluence of quiet, precharged air power and the cutting diameter of today’s broadheads has produced the fantastic groundbreaking Benjamin Pioneer Airbow and I am confident using it on North American big game,” says Shockey.
Arrows from the Pioneer stabilize quickly, giving shooters an expanded kill range for any game animal. The Airbow features a cocking lever that can be operated with only two fingers and decocking is just as easy. Its accuracy is not affected by canting and it does not require the complex maintenance of crossbows. Simply put, the Pioneer Airbow enhances everything enthusiasts enjoy about archery hunting while making the sport safer and more accessible.
“This is an entirely new category of weapon that broadens opportunities for hunters while also renewing opportunities for those who may have left the sport because they are physically unable to draw a compound bow or cock a crossbow,” says Jennifer Lambert, VP of Marketing for Crosman Corporation.
“With groups less than 2” at fifty yards and getting there faster than any crossbow, we invite archers of every caliber to give it a try.”
- The Pioneer Airbow features a black synthetic stock with a Picatinny rail system for mounting accessories and includes:
- Three 375 grain carbon fiber arrows with nano ceramic Victory ICE™coating for increased speed, penetration and easier retrieval, plus field tips
- CenterPoint 6×40 mm optic with custom MTAG reticle offering aiming points to 75 yards
- A canted Picatinny base providing an additional 20 MOA of adjustment
- Custom sling
- Quick-detach quiver
The Pioneer can be cocked and decocked easily, making it especially safe for treestand use
It will be branded under Crosman’s premier hunting label, Benjamin Airguns, and available in Spring 2016 for $849 MSRP. A bonus Realtree AP camo decal kit will be included so owners can decorate the Airbow to their tastes.
