Crosman Challenger Wins Huge JROTC Contract.
Crosman Corporation has announced that it has once again been awarded the contract to be the official supplier of sporter class air rifles for the U.S. Army JROTC program. The Army will purchase more than 13,000 Crosman Challenger PCP air rifles, adding to the more than 4,000 rifles they purchased in 2016. The air rifles will be built at Crosman’s headquarters in Bloomfield, New York.
“For the past several years I’ve had the honor and privilege to work with the JROTC instructors and their cadets.” said Mark Deboard, Shooting Services Manager for Crosman. “It is incredibly rewarding to know that our product helps them become better competitors.”
The Crosman Challenger is the preferred sporter class air rifle for competitive marksmanship programs throughout the country, including the Marine Corps JROTC, Army JROTC, Air Force JROTC, Navy JROTC, American Legion, and 4-H.
The Crosman Challenger is a three-position PCP competition rifle. It features a fully adjustable stock, a two-stage, adjustable match grade trigger, a hooded front aperture sight, a micro click, adjustable diopter rear sight, a patented ambidextrous pull bolt, and a floating Lothar Walther barrel.
“The Crosman Challenger has long been the preferred air rifle for coaches from a variety of marksmanship programs,” said Jennifer Lambert, VP Marketing and Product Development for Crosman. “As the leading American manufacturer of airguns, we’re proud that the Army JROTC chose to continue our partnership and we can’t wait to see what new championships and records their cadets will achieve with the Challenger.”
