Bloomfield, NY -( Crosman Corporation, the world’s largest designer and manufacturer of airguns and ammunition, is proud to announce it has reached an agreement with the Army JROTC to be the official supplier of sporter class air rifles and will begin shipping 4,600 Challenger rifles and accessories this month.

This partnership will support over 600 Army Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) high school programs benefiting an estimated 14,000 cadets.

“We are proud to be the choice of the Army JROTC and feel privileged to contribute to the lives of so many young men and women through the competitive shooting sports,” said Mark DeBoard, Shooting Services Manager for Crosman. “The Challenger was selected for its superior accuracy, adjustability and precision performance and we look forward to seeing thousands of cadets maximize their marksmanship potential at the sporter class level.”

The Crosman Challenger is manufactured in Crosman’s Bloomfield, New York facility and features a Lothar Walther barrel, a patented linear bolt, an adjustable stock, and can be easily filled to 2,000 PSI with a hand pump. In addition to these rifles, accessories to be delivered include air tanks, hand stops, bipods, slings and Swab-Its bore cleaners.

“The Challenger air rifle has impressed coaches across the country and new records are being set by cadets at nearly every competition,” said Jennifer Lambert, VP Marketing for Crosman. “As the leading American manufacturer of airguns, we’re proud that the Army JROTC chose Crosman and we can’t wait to see what new heights their cadets will reach with the Challenger.”
