Comments: This airgun represents Crosman's second pellet firing replica of the Colt 1873 SAA (the first was the SA-6). This model was produced in both 177 and 22 caliber versions. The body of the 177 cal gun is metal and the cylinder is plastic and the left grip cover has an emblem (label) at the top.

Performance: Measurements were made on 8/03/06 at a temperature of 86 F and 14' elevation. A ten shot string was fired from a bench rest at 15' using Crosman Premier Super Match pellets (7.9 gr). The highest velocity measured was 339 fps, the lowest was 279 fps (average of the 10-shot string was 313 fps). A five shot string fired with open sights grouped at 0.91".

Loading Pellets: Pellets are loaded into the non-removable rotating cylinder and held in place by a spring on the inside of the cylinder.
Loading CO2: Insert the CO2 cylinder into the valve seat and tighten (finger tight only -- no tools) the cylinder nut. Cock the gun and fire it two or three times to pierce the cylinder. Cocking the gun pierces the cylinder, not over tightening the cylinder nut.
