checks. The ‘S’ model, retails for
$629 and includes a precision
diopter front and rear sight set.
Says Crosman Shooting Services
Manager, Mark DeBoard: “The
Crosman Challenger is the
sporter-class air rifle of choice
for 8 of the top 10 CMP teams.”
1720T PCP Target
The 18-inch, 2.8-pound, singleshot, 750 fps pistol uses a
Lothar Walther barrel and a
two-stage adjustable matchgrade trigger. It is a contender in any silhouette
or field target match.
We especially liked
the balance and
grip angle of this
$499 air pistol.

PCP Charging System:
This 90-cubic inch model
retails for $439 and is good
for 25 fills in a Challenger rifle.
The best part is its light weight
(made of carbon fiber) and it fits
in a range bag (15 x 4 inches).

80-fill model coming soon.
