    It was innovative for its time and use the be the most powerful production big bore air rifle. Benjamin took a risk making it and targeting the powder burner market. I remember really wanting one but never had the funds to buy one at the time. I wonder what happened with all the rifles and how they held up over time. Or if owners still love and shoot them…

    Unfortunately, they replaced the Rogue with the Bulldog, which to me doesn't have the same good looks. I love bullpups, but I feel the bulldog missed the mark by a long shot. Just my personal opinion!

    25" length barrel .357 with electronics that under-delivered and under-performed iirc…I believe it was said Crosman cut too many corners from the original design but honestly, they could have crushed it if it delivered half of what it promised…

    I have one I purchased as a "safe  queen." It is in excellent condition , is a blast to shoot and is very accurate. I have only shot it a couple times but it is impressive. I like the programmability it has.

    It was pricing and ammo wasn't cheap either. 

    I think Crosman should re release the Rouge.

    That thing is a beauty and a great buy. 
     

    It was ahead of its time for sure but if they released an updated version it would sell out quickly. Their néw rifles with the krale stocks akela cayden however you spell it all 3 have been pretty solid rifles. 
     

    bring back the rouge!

    I can attest to the accuracy and power of the Rouge as I have one in my collection. Yep, I've read a lot of negative things about the gun but it is a beast no matter what one says. I think it was way ahead of it's time and the pricing most likely drove quite a few off. I am, however, looking for parts diagrams and schematics as Benjamin no longer services these. If anyone reading this knows of a source, please share.

    and yes, the Bulldog is one butt-ugly airgun…

    Agree it was too early.

     

    Part of the issue (and why Inever got one) was you could NOT fill it with a hand pump, and at the time Tanks and compressors were still too expensive for my budget.

    But in today’s market where it’s commonplace to see air rifles in excess of $1k+, they should definitely rerelease a modified, lighter weight, version (preferable without electronics!) haha
