ROCHESTER, New York- Crosman® Corporation, long known for innovation and quality in products for the shooting sports, has introduced the new Crosman Optimus™ break barrel air rifle.
According to Crosman Product Manager, Sara Calcagno, “The new Optimus break barrel, available in .177 and .22 caliber, is both powerful and elegant. It features a handsome, ambidextrous, hardwood stock. With a relatively light cocking force and a two-stage adjustable trigger, the Optimus is built to get the job done with velocities up to 1200 feet per second (fps), using alloy pellets,” she said. “The barrel incorporates a micro-adjustable rear sight and fiber optic front sight,” she continued. “If you choose the model with optics, you’ll find a CenterPoint® 4x32mm precision scope which makes an ideal package.”
The Crosman Optimus air rifle will be introduced at SHOT Show 2011, in Las Vegas with an MSRP of $149.99 with scope. Crosman will exhibit its entire product line during SHOT Show 2011 in Las Vegas from January 18-21 in booth number 12740.

ROCHESTER, New York,- Crosman® Corporation, long known for innovation and quality in the shooting sports industry, has introduced a ground-breaking new, electronic, precharged pneumatic (ePCP™) air rifle created for hunters.
According to professional hunter Jim Shockey, “The .357 caliber Benjamin® Rogue™ air rifle offers more knock-down power than any .22 cal rimfire.” The Rogue .357 is a multi-shot repeater equipped with an innovative, micro-processor controlled valve that extends the firing distance and provides “accuracy and lethality out to 100 yards,” says Shockey.
Ken D’Arcy, Crosman President and CEO, said that the pioneering technologies in this air rifle will “combine to change the course and perception of airgun hunting in the same way Samuel Colt changed shooting with the first repeater. Encroaching development and increasing predator encounters have helped with the acceptance of using big bore airguns for urban animal control as well as hunting,” he said. “This venture into big bore hunting airguns is a natural progression for us as we continue to focus our product development on the hunting category.”
The new Benjamin Rogue .357 ePCP hunting air rifle is “different than traditional compressed air PCP or CO2 airguns because of its innovative, patent-pending eVALVE™,” said D’Arcy. “The electronically driven power furnished by the eVALVE promises dramatic changes to the way we are used to hunting with airguns. No other airgun provides as many as 20 shots per fill and shoots at a consistent rate of 150 foot pounds of energy, and certainly not at this price range,” he said.
“The Benjamin Rogue’s flexibility adds further distinction,” said D’Arcy. “By adjusting the electronically controlled settings, the Rogue .357 is capable of short and long distance shooting, making it appropriate for both small and larger game hunting,” he said. “The Rogue’s velocity ranges from 700 to 1000 feet per second with knock-down power from 100 foot pounds of energy (fpe) to an astounding 250 fpe. The limitations of traditional close range airgun hunting are all but eliminated with the Rogue. You can now hunt with an airgun that ethically harvests game at considerably longer ranges,” stated D’Arcy.
Equipped with a single air reservoir, the Rogue fills to 3000 psi. “Thanks to the patent pending eVALVE, the remaining pressure is monitored in the reservoir and maintains constant velocity,” said Terry Neumaster, Crosman product manager. “It solves the problem other big bore PCP guns have of decreasing shot count and reduced knockdown power as the psi decreases. Unlike our more expensive competition, the Benjamin Rogue .357 continues to deliver powerful shots even with pressure as low as 1000 psi. This feature makes for remarkably efficient use of the remaining air in the reservoir, resulting in an increased shot count,” he said.
All the information a hunter needs for a day in the field is available on the Rogue’s built-in EPiC™, LCD screen. “Accurately displaying the remaining pressure in the air chamber helps hunters determine how many shots are left before the gun needs to be re-filled,” says Neumaster.
The EPiC screen reports other variables controlled by the micro-processor, including the controls for the e-VALVE. “By controlling the open time of the valve via the EPiC controls, you have the option of adjusting your shot velocity. In addition, by making adjustments to the settings for the grain weight of your ammunition, you literally ‘dial in’ your preferred power,” according to Neumaster. A heavier load means more knock-down power and, although a heavier load reduces the quantity of shots per fill, it produces heavier impact on larger game. “The most exceptional aspect of the Rogue .357 is its variability. No other airgun lets you choose what kind of game you want to hunt, in one package with only a few easy adjustments,” he said.
“There is enough power in this air rifle to take a boar-sized animal and, while I like airgun hunting for the challenge of close range pursuit, having one gun that offers both short and long range options is a hunter’s dream,” says Shockey. “The Rogue brings airgun hunting beyond pest control and into trophy hunting territory.”
Benjamin has introduced three new .357 bullets designed for the Rogue rifle. The Benjamin eXTREME™ Bullet by Nosler® features Nosler’s famous Ballistic Tip® technology. Weighing in at 145 grains, it is a versatile bullet with “superb hunting accuracy and deep penetration,” according to President, Bob Nosler. There are also two new .357 Benjamin Pursuit™ bullets for use with the Rogue rifle, the Pursuit Hollow Point at 90 grains and the Pursuit Round Nose at 175 grains. Both are softer than traditional lead bullets and form effectively to the barrel of the rifle, due to their stepped band design.
The Rogue rifle’s innovatively designed stock is shaped for hunters. The magazine holds an impressive six shots. It has a 2-stage, electronic, adjustable trigger with dual electronic switches that significantly reduces lock time. The air rifle is outfitted with sling studs and a fill adaptor.
