    For anyone interested, Crosman just slashed their prices on many of their popular models again as of about 1 AM this morning.

    Want to try a NP2 starting at just over $47 new? Or a Benjamin Trail or Summit NPE or NP2 in synthetic or hardwood in many variations just over $90 with free shipping?

    Or maybe a pinked-up 760 Pumpmaster for a neice or daughter for just over $23?

    Or a FFP scope for under $80? SFP with side-focus under $40? Did I mention 30mm tubes as well?

    Free shipping on anything over $75?

    Crosman gets a bad rap on some of their stuff, and I admit I am victim of one of their air rifles myself. But at these prices, it seems like a "why not" to take a flyer on something.

    Yeah, I grabbed a few things that I did not really NEED, I picked up the same FFP scope as well as the PLT side-focus. I figure the prices are so low, might as well give them a shot and see if they are better than their el-cheapo cousins.

    It would be fantastic if theses deals were offered in Australia. I really like my Benjie Trail but it cost nearly $500.00 Aus 5 years ago and that was without any sort of scope.

    Thanks, really some great deals. I also picked up a scope and am really hemming and hawing about going back for a break barrel. I dont need a new break barrel, but, I mean for the price…

    FYI I bought the larger Spectrum FFP scope and it’s a decent scope for the money but I ended up giving it away in favor of this similarly-priced one off Aliexpress:
    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32878191110.html

     

    It has a finer reticle better suited to precision shooting.  One of the complaints of FFP in general is that the reticle is sometimes too coarse at full magnification…that’s okay and perhaps even desirable for hunting in a shaded forest but not so good for fine target work.  To give some perspective, on this one the center dot is about the size of an aspirin at 50 yards.   And I’m usually pretty ambivalent about illuminated reticles but I really like this one.  Whereas many tend to either be so bright as to wash out the sight picture and skew your night-adapted vision, or so dim as to be useless…instead, this one gently backlights the reticle with a soft glow.  The result is excellent contrast of the reticle against the target.

     

    With that said, Crosman’s customer service is second to none so if I were putting it on a hard-recoiling springer, I’d probably go with the Spectrum.

    😂  That is a nice reticle, but that box's labeling "SWEET"  has me cracking up.  I'll have to remember this one.  May give it a try some day.

    Oh wait, did I forget to mention this scope is freakin' sweet?

     

     

    Actually what they're doing is branding it as a BSA Sweet:

    I am assuming this isn't a BSA Sweet .17 or .22, but a knock-off branded as one?

    Also just a FYI for anyone who may not already know, the NPE/NP2 rifles that Crosman sells, as well as anything from their custom shop are all built in the USA by American workers in their NY facility. I just checked again and most of their sale prices are still active, and I suspect they will be until 12/31, or until certain products sell through.

    That’s right about the BSA branding…they probably thought it’s more believable than a $150 Leupold or a $250 Swarovski.  It’s silly but the scope is nice for the price nonetheless.

    Hey if you are happy with it and obviously aware of it, more power to you. The reality is, most scopes or the components in them are made in China anyway. In at least one of Joe Rhea's videos he breaks it down very well when he said that the Chinese can make a very good scope, it just depends what you are willing to pay for the quality. Even a lot of the cheap ones on Amazon now have surprisingly good (not great, but good) glass in them. And I have also heard horror stories of guys that have bought a "Leupold" or "Burris" scope off of AliExpress and sent it to the "manufacturer" a year or two later for warranty work only to find out that they bought a counterfeit scope and they are stuck with it. But if the price is cheap enough, like the latest deal posted above through Crosman, I kind of look at like "why not?" If one of the items I bought fails, like a $66 NP2 air rifle, I already made up my mind that I can afford to lose $66 if it comes to that. And if I end up being happy with it or even get a year or two of use out of it, then I can't complain too much about it.
