I saved up as a kid and bought a ............crosman 2200 magnum .......... What a name its gotta be good hasnt it !!!!!!!
Within a month the plastic stock acted like a door hinge as it wore itself loose , it being wedged between the two diecast silver coloured side plates. Fishing line wrapped around the joint and araldite sorted that
The plastic cocking bolt had eventualy bent itself back so far that it had to be snapped off , a flat blade screwdriver used to force the remaining bolt action back sorted that
The tappered barrel shroud worked loose revealing a straw of a barrel , araldite sorted that
It started to leak , and eventualy wouldnt pump at all THE BIN SORTED THAT!!!!!
it was great for the first day
Has anybody still got one that works ????
I've had two and I've been very happy with both! The first was when I was a kid and it was much more accurate and powerful than my mates airsporter, and the second I bought about 6 years ago for my daughter. We've shot loads of woodies with it!
(And rats and rabbits and chickens)
Two HWs does not a fanboy make!
mmmmmm im thinking i was a rough heavy handed kid now
I have one but I am keeping it well away from you Tony!
It was a article by rod lynton in airgun world that prompted the purchase , I got to say though it was more than pokey enough for the usual airgun quarry , I belive that the model1 was the same gun with a wooden stock and black side plates
Will have to report back later, as got to go out with the Mrs down town now....It was okay, the major drawback being the very creepy trigger, and they're right little buggers to take to bits to tweak.
I think the pump-up pistol platform is FAR superior.....Doddle to work on, far better trigger (and that trigger is so easy to tweak). You can now buy new, over here, the 1322 pistol, the .22 version of the 1377.
Stick a steel breech conversion on it and shoulder stock and you have yourself a very accurate, recoilless little tool.
