One of the primary vendors and sponsors here at the 2011 NRA National Junior Air Gun Championship is Crosman®, a company known for their high-quality competition air guns.  Crosman® is a Gold Sponsor for the competition and has given two Challenger® PCP air rifles to be given as prizes.

Crosman® representative Mark DeBoard has a table set up in our vendor area where he has the Challenger® PCP competition air rifle on display.

The Challenger®, which came out in 2009, is a Dual Fuel® air rifle, meaning that it can shoot using either compressed air or carbon dioxide. It also features a three-position stock, a match-grade adjustable trigger, and a floating Lothar Walther™ barrel.

Although it was designed for the Sporter Class, DeBoard told NRAblog that some Precision shooters use the gun as well due to its superior accuracy.

“It’s a great entry-level Precision gun and you don’t have to spend thousands of dollars on a rifle,” said DeBoard of the Challenger®.

For the club price of just $475, the Challenger® is reasonably priced and is a good choice for either new shooters or seasoned Sporter competitors looking to transition into Precision shooting.

The Challenger® meets the requirements of a competitive air rifle for both CMP and NRA-sanctioned competitions and has become a popular rifle amongst shooting clubs, some of whom purchase them through NRA.

“We sell a lot of these through the NRA grant program,” said DeBoard.

If you’re here with us at Camp Perry, be sure to stop by the vendor area to thank Crosman® for their support and to check out the Challenger®.
