Sale A0323 Lot 22A


A RARE REPEATING 'MODEL 118' CO2-POWERED .22 AIR-RIFLE BY CROSMAN, USA, no visible serial number,
manufactured only between 1952-54, with 22in. barrel, blade fore-sight, peep rear-sight, blacked receiver with detachable tubular magazine and lever cocking handle, plain beech half-stock and bulk-fill reservoir below barrel (original filling cylinder absent), the whole expertly refinished

Provenance: Despite being the flagship air-rifle of the Crosman range, its launch price of $34-95 was nearly double that of a contemporary single shot Crosman. This, coupled with its use of co2 (rare until the disposable 'Powerlet' bulbs arrived) meant that it was a very short-lived model. Astonishingly, it used an action based on the Girandoni system, first designed back in 1780
