Things I liked: Its nice on the eyes, as consistent as a regulated rifle and scary accurate within 20 yards.
Things I would have changed: Its heavy for jugging around, I'd like to see a light weight stock option. Stand up shooting from shoulder is a task that I've yet to manage and is my preferred shooting style with all of my other rifles.
What others should know: It has shot every pellet except the RWS 8.2 Meister's well enough, with the Superpoint, Polymag Short, JSB 8.44 and 13.43 extremely accurate. More accurate than I can manage to show. Floated Choked LW barrels and a huge range of possibilities in power with minimal effort and zero cost.
Things I liked: The adjustable stock and trigger pull.
Things I would have changed: Better seals to retain air in the cyclinder.
What others should know: This is my second CH 2009. My first has been undergoing repair since August of 2015. It was returned to shoot once and immediately had to be returned for repair and I have been waiting for three months for it as well as one of our local 4H guns.
Things I liked: The rifle was very accurate and I liked the adjustable stock.
Things I would have changed: I would add some type of texture to the butt stock, it's very slick and does not offer a secure feeling surface against the shoulder.
What others should know: I had issues with this rifle cocking and firing when I first got it. After some adjustments to the hammer energy with the help of Gene from the tech department it began to fire reliably, however after about 1,000 firings it started to refuse to fire on occasion. Then the velocity dropped off to near nothing. I decided to return the rifle and get an Air Arms T-200, which I have not received yet. I think Crosman could have better quality control.

Does this rifle come with a "F" stamp, so that it can be used in Germany and other European countries? There is an F inside a pentagram stamp.
Is this gun powerful enough to use for field target?
Other than the LW barrel, this is MADE in China, then ASSEMBLED in USA?
No, that is not correct. It is "Made in the USA. With Globally Sourced Parts."
