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 particular air rifle has the circular logo marked “PAT OCT. 28 1924, CROSMAN ARMS CO. ROCHESTER N.Y.” on the receiver. It also has the short style knurled cocking knob, and faceted receiver, and steel barrel possibly manufactured by Remington. This appears to be a variant manufactured between 1925 and 1926.
The metal retains about 85% of the original finish, or better. The wood stock and forearm are in good condition with no cracks or chips. It looks really nice.
It’s been cleaned lubed and resealed in our shop. Velocity tested at around 511 fps using lead pellets.
