Crosman Model M1 BB gun. Circa 1968. A spring/piston BB shooter with a difference.  This BB gun has a poppet valve air control device that opens only when the air in the cylinder is pressurised. It  is said to give the gun an extra bit of power.

 Crosman Town & Country Rifle-1949

The T/C was designed as a target/training gun, so , power was not a consideration. Famous Crosman engineer/designer, Rudy Merz designed the T/C. It was his first new air rifle. Longtime Crosman consultant, General S.R. Hinds is responsible for most of the "interesting" design features of the T/C. The term Town and Country refers to the combination target (peep) and field (open) sights. The gun is large because the General intended for it to be used as a training gun for adults. When intrroduced, the T/C was officially qualified for all ASA shooting events. There are pictures of Gen. Hinds and Crosman president Phil Hahn looking over the T/C like it was new baby. -source D T Fletcher

                                                                                          The Ted Williams Crosman 126 Match  Rifle 

 I had one of these rifles for some months, it worked as both a pneumatic and CO2 rifle. In the former mode it was rather 'labour intensive' but energy generated by pumping was adequate. I had it photographed and  recorded all I knew about it in the March '86 'Air Gunner' magazine.  I  revisited the subject in a follow-up article at the end of the same year (Dec. '86) and included some facts regarding the gun's  name-which came directly to me from Fred Diehn, the Director of Marketing for Crosman Airguns in a 'phone call he kindly made to me. He explained this "Ted Williams' marked Crosman Model 160 rifle was a project undertaken for  Sear's retail and mail-order house.My sample was subsequently returned to Mr Alan Hamer (Manchester Air Guns) who eventually  sold it. I recorded all details as accurately as I could after inspecting and testing the rifle. The Crosman 126 Match associated with an Instantair hand-pump is an efficient shooter when charged with either air or CO2. The pump's fitted and polished ball handle is well designed and moderately easy to use.Unlike many air cane front pumps the Instantair does not require pushing against a hard object-which is convenient. At time of writing two samples of this interesting outfit are known. John Atkins

Variation on a theme.
A Crosman Model 160 rifle sold by Sears,Roebuck & Co.,USA. Uses either CO2 Powerlets or, can be charged by accompanying "INSTANTAIR" pump(Pat.541842). Works perfectly with air or CO2! A rare item.
