Crossman Introduces the New Icon PCP Bolt-Action Air Rifle
PCP Rifles are popular hunting choices for both their simplicity and power output. Not technically considered firearms, PCP air rifles also help younger hunters and those in more restrictive states accomplish similar tasks to both centerfire and rimfire hunting cartridges for small game and even larger game at the correct distances. The Crossman Icon features a synthetic stock, rifled steel barrel, a 1/2×20 UNF threaded muzzle for the attachment of a dedicated air gun suppressor (a non-NFA item), a 200 psi pressure gauge with up to 30 “effective” shots per fill, fiber optic front sight, fully adjustable rear sight, and finally a 10-shot auto-indexing magazine.
The entire package in either the .177 caliber or .22 caliber configuration is sold online on Crossman’s website for $299.99 making it a more affordable option for those new to PCP air rifles or maybe those who are just curious about trying out Crossman’s latest offering.
