The Crosman Challenger PCP gives you a competition pellet rifle that meets the requirements for National Standard three position air rifle matches, so it's a great way to get started for anyone from a younger shooter to someone with plenty of experience. It gives you the adjustable options you need to take your shooting to the next level at a competitive event, including speeds up to 580 fps, an improvement from the older version.

You'll appreciate the precision adjustments this rifle gives you so you can get the custom fit you want, including the fully adjustable synthetic stock. You get a precision adjustable cheek rest for optimal cheek weld and eye positioning, plus a precision adjustable buttpad for a comfortable hold and an adjustable length for better results. You also get a two stage match grade trigger that has an adjustable shoe, so you get a clean and predictable break.

The Crosman Challenger PCP provides you with accuracy from each and every shot because it combines a Lothar Walther floating barrel with a regulator, so you can depend on steady shot to shot speeds. You get over 200 shots per fill with the 3000 psi air tube, and you can shoot left handed as easily as right handed because of the reversible sidelever action.

You'll also get the options for precision aiming you expect in a competition rifle, with micro click elevation and windage adjustments to the rear diopter sight, plus a front aperture sight that takes removable inserts. You can also add optional components like a bipod to the bottom accessory slot, or use the included precision adjustable sliding hand rest.

Whether you're a seasoned shooter or just starting out with competition shooting, you'll find the features you need to do your best with the Crosman Challenger PCP, so get it now at Airgun Depot.

The wide range of adjustability also makes this a good choice for a club gun or one that can be adjusted as a shooter grows in size. For the price I think Crosman should have included tool-less adjustment. Needing a tiny allen wrench to make changes is something I would expect in a cheaper rifle, but this rifle sells at a premium for what it is. My final thoughts are that this rifle is designed to dominate a sport that has well-defined limits for equipment, and in that realm it will succeed. As a general plinker it is not particularly impressive. The only things this rifle does that set it apart from my other cheaper PCP rifles is the stock adjustment and the excellent trigger. If you are looking to try out 10 meter shooting just for fun, a Daisy 853 will shoot right with this rifle for a lot less money, though with a lesser trigger and no stock adjustability the shooter will have to work harder to keep up.

Pros
I picked up one of these rifles to work on my offhand shooting, most of which I do with an Anschutz 64 MS (.22lr). As an air rifle understudy this rifle does quite well. With the trigger at its lightest setting and crispest let-off (both stages are adjustable for engagement and travel) mine breaks at 1.3 pounds. While not in the same class as the 4 ounce 2-stage of my Anschutz, it is plenty good enough for precision work. It is almost as good as the Rekord trigger in my Beeman R9, and the adjustable height of the trigger shoe is very helpful for fitting various hand sizes. The stock offers plenty of adjustment range to fit children or someone larger than I am (I'm 6'2", 200 pounds). The adjustable palm shelf works well, too. Accuracy so far has been very good, though I'm sure I will find a better pellet than the RWS Hobby I have been plinking with. Five-shot groups at 10 meters are typically 0.1" or less. At 25 yards they open up to 0.2"-0.3" depending on the wind.

Cons
As good as the rifle is, I think it is over-priced considering the bargains in the airgun world today. My $300 Avenger shoots just as accurately and is less pellet fussy. The Challenger feels inexpensive and the shot cycle is very buzzy, almost like a low-powered springer that needs a tune. I think the striker spring needs some sort of dampening. The gun isn't loud, but it is louder than I expected for a low-powered pcp. The gun gets about 280 shots per fill, which I like a lot, and being regulated every shot is fairly consistent. The sights are very nice and I can see where they would drive up the cost of the rifle too, but in the end, the rifle feels like it should cost ~$500. Now if you are an NRA 3P or 10m Sporter competitor, this is probably the rifle to buy since it seems to push the boundaries of the rules of those classes more than the competition, and it should follow in the steps of its predecessors in dominating these sports.
