I would say the old Crosman 100 series barrels were pretty darned good.

In profile and balance. These fine guns were pumpup type (except CG), made from around 1925 to the late 40's. these were some of the finest air rifles ever made for their times. Heres a url with some pics of various:

The barrels, from what I heard, were first sourced from Germany (brass), and later made in the USA, but I'm not sure by who.

Also the 1984 stocks were Anschutz made.

The best current barrels are the 18" .177 and .22 available on the Crosman custom shop guns.

i was only 3 in 84 so had no clue..... seems like the Mar is also based off this.maybe the cost caused the skanaker to fail along with being co2 as opposed to hpa, oh well.

Geez, I was 21 in in 1984.
Don't know about those 100 series Crosman barrels being so great. My late '40's 102 is good, but I would not call it a tack driver.

My most accurate Crosman rifle is my 1760 barreled 760, after that, my Benji 392 (but I had to clean the paint out of the barrel first). But the Benji is pellet picky though.

I plink, therefore I am.
