    I finally got my hands on a Crosman model 1 pumper on the eBay auctions. Cost me a pretty penny with all the watchers & bidders though. More than I preferred to pay, but it looks to be in good condition. Seller could've posted more than 2 pics though? Odd that Crosman site has no listing for it? Or not listed as a model 1? Any ideas here, folks? Comes with a red soft case as well. I hope it's an old Crosman logo case? Here's the only two pics, with one of them being the specs. Idk where he got them, unless he had the manual?

    The came out in about 1980 and only lasted a couple of years before Crosman transitioned to the 2100 & 2200 series with a plastic stock. Original price was $100. 

    Nice rifle. Enjoy!

    That's pretty good velocity for a .22cal

    I've been wanting a model 1 for awhile now. It cost me a pretty penny, especially for such a nice one that I kinda didn't mind paying the price. It's due in this Monday! I'm like a kid at Christmas waiting for it. I've since been given a link on GTA that it's a model 1/2280. 1981-85. Looks to share parts with the 760's? And good enough velocity with the right pellets to hunt small game with from what the guys on GTA have said. Here's the PDF's from Crosman.com;

    Well, I didn't find any history on it, but Baker airguns had a nice one for $199. So $355 was a bit much. It goes on to say the adjustable rear sights are Williams! That's encouraging. Here's a couple pics Baker had of both sides;

    That is a common misconception.

    The v.1 2200 predated the Model 1 (2280) by 5 years.

    In later years the 2100W and 2200W were externally identical to the Model 1, w/o the plastic clamshells ahead of the pump arm.

    Very rare and nice looking versions.

    It looks like new and performs as such. Gotta adjust the rear sights and test it again. Wanna shoot a bit further this time. If I do it in the middle afternoon, I might be able to sit by the front door & shoot down the hallway to the patio door? Find a scrap of plywood for additional backstop
