The Crosman 101 is a .22 caliber pneumatic pump bolt action single shot air rifle. It was the standard Crosman air rifle for over 25 years. Crosman 101s were manufactured between 1924 and 1950. This one has a the longer knurled cocking knob, octagonal receiver, cast circular logo, tombstone peep sight, and clickless forearm pump handle. It looks like this variant may have been manufactured between 1927 and 1929, but it’s hard to tell for sure.
The metal appears to retain most of the original finish. About 85 to 90%. The wood stock has only minor wear. It’s in very nice condition.
It was cleaned, lubed, and resealed in our shop. Velocity was tested at around 606 fps using lead pellets.
