Things I liked: Extremely accurate. Reasonably priced. Adjustable ergonomics to fit a variety of youths to adults. Good balance. The best trigger in the competition sporter air rifle category.

Things I would have changed: A better standard rear sight. A better selection of front sight aperture inserts.

What others should know: The new Challenger 2009 is miles better than Crosman's first effort with the Challenger 2000. It keeps the earlier rifle's adjustable ergonomics but adds a first rate trigger (for the category) and the highly accurate, German made Lothar-Walther barrel. While the trigger cannot be compared to a German Olympic level rifle, you would have to pay at least three times the price of this air rifle to get a better trigger. From a sand bag rest at ten meters, I've shot five pellet groups that look like only one pellet was fired at the target. This rifle likes premium German made ammo. I've gotten the best results with RWS Meisterkugeln and R-10s in the heavy, 8.2 grain weight. With compressed air, I can get 100-110 consistent shots. On CO2, I've gotten a bit more, 130-140 shots with a fill of 1.5 ounces. This rifle action can be taken apart from the stock with just one screw. The rifle will then fit in a short takedown shotgun case for easy storage and transport. This rifle will be competitive in Sporter competitions.

Things I liked: Light weight, decent trigger.

Things I would have changed: Quality control from crosman. This is the second rifle of ten I have bought from crosman than comes with a leak. I can't believe that a Rifle of US $600 doesn´t have the minimum quality control. Quality control of crosman. This is the second rifle of ten I have bought from crosman than comes with a leak. I can't believe that a Rifle of US$600 doesn´t have the minimum quality control. The firs thing I did after unboxing was trying to fill the rifle with the benjamin air pump and for the second time with a crosman rifle the air leaks through the barrel, I am very disappointed. Tha firs thing I did after unboxing was tring to fill the rifle with the benjamin air pump and for the second with a crosman rifle the air leaks through the barrel, I am very disapointed.

What others should know: You should buy the 10 for $10 test service from pyramydair if you are going to buy a crosman rifle. A few months ago I bought a benjamin discovery with this same problem.

    Things I liked: Great price for an entry-level 3-position rifle. Fired tight group straight from the box, easy trigger pull, stock is easy to adjust to the shooter.

    Things I would have changed: Sights come from the factory uninstalled. I decided to locktite front and rear sights in place to maintain accuracy.

    What others should know: CO2 fill is only 1000psi, limits shooting between refills to about 35-40 shots.
