Crosman is proud to introduce to the world the latest and greatest in competition airguns; the all new Challenger PCP. This Sporter Class air rifle was recently reviewed by the National Three-Position Air Rifle Council's committee and was approved as legal for use in Sporter Class air rifle competition.
The Challenger PCP kept the adjustable stock and ambidextrous bolt handle from the wildly popular Challenger 2000, but now includes a patented integral locking mechanism. Additionally, the completely re-designed feature set includes a two-stage, match grade, adjustable trigger and a Lothar Walther barrel for unsurpassed accuracy. The gun comes equipped with the ability to operate on either CO2 or compressed air, using Crosman's highly successful PCP platform.
Combine all of this with a visible pressure gauge and user friendly loading port, and the Challenger PCP becomes a gun that all competition shooters, young and old, can be proficient with in any shooting event. Only from Crosman, the world leader in airgun innovation since 1923.

Challenger PCP Rifle with sights (.177)
By Damon Landschoot
-Fit for younger and older shooters
-built tough, but please done shoot this precise piece of equipment in sandy or dusty environments such as the outdoors in the southwest.
-If the shooter is good enough, can compete against Precision Class shooters.
Things you need to know;
-If you can avoid it, do not let this rifle drop into the low pressure red zone. Once completely depressurized, you may have trouble refilling the cylinder.
-Plan on using pressurized air. CO2 is a real PITA.
-Try do get access to a SCUBA tank and the attachment for filling with pressurized air because the pump is a real workout. As the club leader, I often have to fill up several rifles prior to practice and it is not fun. You don't want your shooters getting their heart rate up prior to shooting so you will have to fill yourself. . . . SCUBA is the best answer. Check with your local fire department for high pressure SCUBA tank fill up donations. It won't cost them anything so they should be willing to donate, especially for clubs.
-The front sight globe is plastic. It is very sturdy, but care should be taken not to ding or bump it. I haven't had any move off zero yet, but just letting you know.
Things that could be improved;
-Cocking the bolt is a bit difficult for some of the younger shooters. Although the ambidextrous system is great, switching to a easier "lever type" system may be in order.
-The adjustable cheek piece needs to be able to go a little higher. The height it goes now is limited to just under optimal for most shooters, even the younger ones.
-Find a way to bring the Anschutz utility rail closer to the trigger guard as some of the younger shooters have trouble with handstop placement in kneeling and prone. May have to change the stock to do this, but I don't think a new mold for this rifle stock is that expensive. It would just be a business decision by Crosman as to weather they could make up the cost.
Best gun for 3 position sporter
