guess I'll go back to what I was working on....

custom stock for the Nitro (blank is glued up)

getting the 397 AC shroud to be quieter (need materials.... and a better drill press, more trigger adjustments to really tighten it down)

and a custom stock for my 2250 (well under way....)

still have the 393 running around my head too.....
edit:397 trigger

...will gather up their marbles on the Rogue.

That is pretty hefty in price considering the other items needed to make it work; it's the PCP concept. Cheaper to go black powder. In fact, the technology and innovations in black powder rifles now is impressive. The inline guns are neat.

Not for me at all. The two air rifles that need to be in my collection: FX Indy and ther Webley-Venom Paradigm, hands down do they. Again, the price of those keeps me away. I'll spend the money in a much wiser manner.

Honestly, at the Rogue price, I feel it will flop - flop big. The MAR unit will too, also it sets a precedent for an air rifle to be considered a firearm simply by the design nature (once assembled); requires a lower unit.

Neat concepts, and in a poor economy, bad decision.

For Crosman to step up to such a level is, in many ways, abhorrent.

I still think they should do a modern modular multi-pump based on the 2260/Discovery platform (not 1377 or Benji). Offer versions with a Marauder trigger. Maybe offer an air conserving version too that can be a sort of self contained po'boy's PCP.

Dream on....

I am suprised that given the fact they monitor the forums, that they dont synergize more stuff from what they have already on the shelf....
