Comments: This air pistol is a Crosman Model 338 with a plastic shell styled like an UZI Carbine (see bottom view below). Crosman classified this as a pistol even though it has an integral folding stock, which is why it is included in this collection. Performance is generally comparable to the Model 338, although the muzzle velocity is about 70 fps less. This airgun was only on the market for two years and is difficult to find in good condition.

Performance: Measurements were made on 8/06/06 at a temperature of 84 F and 14' elevation. A ten shot string was fired from a bench rest at 15' using Crosman Copperhead BBs (5.1 gr). The highest velocity measured was 385 fps, the lowest was 333 fps (average of the 10-shot string was 362 fps). A six shot string fired with open sights grouped at 1.03".
