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 and cylinder of the 22 cal gun are metal and the grip covers are made from wood. The performance of the Model 44 (.22) does not measure up to the SA-6.

Performance: Measurements were made on 11/05/06 at a temperature of 65 F and 14' elevation. A ten shot string was fired from a bench rest at 15' using H&N Match-Kugeln pellets (13.4 gr). The highest velocity measured was 252 fps, the lowest was 189 fps (average of the 10-shot string was 227 fps). A six shot string fired with open sights grouped at 1.02".

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.

Packaging: The box is pretty beat up with several torn corners on the bottom and a missing side on the top.
