If you want Olympic style bench shooting, go no further than the Crosman Challenger PCP rifle. Crosman worked with Hans and Ray Apelles, two world-class airgunners, to develop the new Challenger Dual Fuel competition air rifle. This Sporter Class air rifle was recently reviewed by the National Three-Position Air Rifle Council's committee and was approved as legal for use in Sporter Class air rifle competition. The Challenger PCP kept the adjustable stock and ambidextrous bolt handle from the popular Challenger 2000, but now includes a patented integral locking mechanism. Additionally, the completely re-designed feature set includes a two-stage, match grade, adjustable trigger and a Lothar Walther barrel for unsurpassed accuracy. The gun comes equipped with the ability to operate on either CO2 or compressed air, using Crosman's successful PCP platform. Combine all of this with a visible pressure gauge and user friendly loading port, and the Challenger PCP becomes a gun that all competition shooters, young and old, can be proficient with in any shooting event. Only from Crosman, the world leader in airgun innovation since 1923. Challenger Competition Air Rifle

I purchased this Challenger about 6 years ago, and it still continues to shoot like the day I first took it out of the box. And after all this time it still is able to hold air.

Well balanced, adjustable trigger.

I bought this rifle to use on a 10 meter air gun range & club I couldn't improve on it much for competition purposes. It is right for the olympic's so its got to be right for me.

Accurate and lightweight.

I feel like the bolt handle is to hard to pull back normally I always feel like I'm having to grab the handle in an odd some what cumbersome sort of way. I have had problems with the diopter rear sight falling off the gun in transit to the club for shooting that is not good when you have zeroed etc.

I recently purchased a Crosman Challenger 2009. This a great air rifle geared towards competition shooting. It is very accurate for target shooting. Out of the box it will shoot better than 99% of anyone shooting it. It holds air, I had no leaks. It gets the advertised shot count, albeit at around 520 FPS. This is not a hunter, energies are too low for humane pest control. The bolt cocking is smooth. It is is easy to pump with a hand pump (2000 PSI). The sights are a nice addition though geared more towards competition. I put a 3x9 bugbuster on it and it is a tack driver!

Low fill pressure Very accurate Adjustable stock (young shooter to large adult)

Price is a little high, but compared to other competition rifles is ok.

This is very nice PCP I enjoy shooting it and I like the stock with the adjustable cheek rest and stock butt as well. Very accurate fun to shoot. I like the Charging handle ( resembles the charging handle on the old M-16 that I used in Nam ) to set the rifle to shoot.

Very accurate, easy to fill tank, adjustable stock... Just fun to shoot.

with a scope mounted takes some doing to put a pellet into the bore to shoot

By emmanuel a.November 9, 2010

ive havent used these rifles but ive seen other schools use them and they did shoot better and one school only had 3 weeks of practice with those and they beat us so i think these rifles are much better and i would recommend this rifle

Can this be mounted with a scope instead of front and rear sights?

asked Elizabeth from USA

Buenas Tardes, quisiera saber si este rifle se puede utilizar o modificar para usarlo en practica de field Trget,, lo he visto en videos you tube pero quiero conocer su opinion al respecto

asked Juan carlos Ordoñez

Can you use co2 bulk tanks( keg system) to refill as you would use air pump?how much pressure is required?

asked John

What sights do you reccamend for this gun? does it compare to big buck guns in competition?

asked John

Iron sights are required for many competitions (no scopes) - if the Challenger is shipped without sights, what does Crosman have available to fit the Challenger, or (if they haven''t) are modifications to the rifle or sights necessary to mount a Lyman or Redfield type of aftermarket sight?

asked Charlie

Can you have a handstop on this rifle?
