Classic Crosman CO2 Revolvers

Yesterday at a gun show, I bought an old Crosman .22 CO2 pellet gun, Model 44, which looks just like an old Colt Single Action Army .45 and is almost as heavy (all metal, no plastic except the grips). Dunno if it works, but it's complete, and if it doesn't, for no more than I paid for it ($20), I'll hang it on the wall.

The cylinder is a bit stiff in rotation. I just went on eBay and found a "factory service manual" available for it cheap, so I bought that, so if it's fixable, I should be able to fix it.

I have several of the old Crosman 38C and 38T CO2 revolvers, too. Some of them work; at least one needs seals. While I was manual shopping, I bought one for them, too, from the same seller.

The idea of getting some of these things working and shooting them in my basement is getting very appealing. Last time I did the math it was almost as expensive to shoot CO2 as it was .22 rimfire, but .22RF prices have more than doubled in the last decade, so the gas guns might be a more economical option now.

I have one of those, too. Had one as a kid. Only shot it a few times, but it worked fine. A few years ago I ran across another one and bought it for a few bucks.

I had a Crosman revolver decades ago in .177 and it was a good shooter. I tended to treat it more as a race gun though and the mechanism that rotated and aligned the cylinders finally broke. I wish I still had it as it would be a great one to carry along when mowing to take care of the ground squirrels.

I do remember it was fairly loud for a pellet gun.
