I'm not sayin' we are or we aren't, but we want to know your thoughts on under lever break barrel guns. What do you like, dislike, feature wish list....what would be your ideal under lever?

We're listening.

...Chip. Of course, since Crosman is owned by an investment group comprised of attorneys, a ratchet system for safety will be incorperated into the design, I'm certain. That's fine indeed.

The overall idea of an underlever isn't new, but would be a new approach for Crosman that would probably eat up other piston gun sales Crosman is currently making/marketing. Suppose that is fine too.

I like the idea for Crosman. Also like underlever fixed barrel springers/piston driven guns over actual barrel cocking designs hands down. The reasons are obvious, such as a fixed barrel reasons. The design of springers using under or side lever designs are more accurate generally by their design nature.

Go for it. Of couurse an actual Crosman made gun and not that of a rebranded Chinese gun marked up a little.

I'd like to see one!

Make it in the states, make a 600 to 700 fps version, and make a "Sheridan" in .20 caliber! I'll take one!

I plink, therefore I am.

...how about an underlever with a bolt action breech loading setup!

I dumped all the break barrels except for the RWS 350,
Side and underlevers are in the top 2 spots for me with the underlever at the #1spot.

Then the self pumper 13xx, Benjamin 392, 397, after that PCP but PCP is quickly falling from favor.

I would like to see a 6 to 10 shot underlever in 177, 20 and 22 calibers possibly a 25 caliber but to the west of us we have 15 miles of nothing but farm land and trees So the 25 caliber really has no use for us we jump to the powder burners.

Sterling HR-81 and HR83.
Cool concept, but it never really caught on.

Yep, just what I was thinking.

If a 'known' company, Crosman, utilized the design perhaps it would catch on. More people know the Crosman name; Since Crosman owns Benjamin-Sheridan now, perhaps a rebirth of the Sterling design would provoke new interest. Ben-Sheridan purchased Sterling and Crosman purchased Ben-Sheridan. I'd like to see one reborn!

which is a feature I appreciate. I really enjoyed having an NPSS, so I hope your underlever
has the nitro piston.

The thing I don't like about an underlever such as CFX is the forward weight. So a short stroke
nitro piston would partly alleviate it, so would a fluted barrel, hollow cocking lever etc.

+ .25 calibre if none of the above!

.....for Crosman.

Try to avoid the cheap look of the lower-level truck sale guns from China.

To me, not having it over-sprung would be a good thing. There is too much emphasis on power in spring guns, and that may sound funny coming from a bigbore hunter like me, but the finesse of a good underlever is a simple joy that many would support, especially if built here.

The BSA line of underlevers always impressed me, as did the Air Arms versions. The HW series of underlevers have such a good reputation that something approaching their level of quality, and American made, would be unique in the airgun world at the moment. Especially if a price point that was attractive could be reached.
