Crosman 1300 Medalist II

A very rare beast this one, the Medalist II. There are a good many Crosmans and variants but this has to be one of my favourites. Tucked into your waisband with a pocket full of pellets what more could a young boy have wished for – apart from an accompanying rifle.

The reason for the posting?  Do I really need one? This is a very nice pistol, it has no pretensions and it is exactly as described. A fun pistol to shoot in the garden or out in the Jungle. Okay, so the woods then!

And here is the oldest Benjamin I have had in this year, a real rarity this one and if you think the Crosman 600 was the first semi automatic CO2 pistol, think again.
This really is a very rare beast and a pistol that is in very good working condition. It uses the 8gram CO2 “sparklets” bulbs, popular in the sixties and seventies but still freely available thankfully.

Very seldom seen and the grips are in terrific condition. Bought non-working it was repaired by the owner using a few hand tools and some rubber sheet he cut up to make seals. Just goes to show that with a little ingenuity all things are possible, another gratuitous shot:
