In 1923 in Rochester, New York, Crosman was founded as Crosman Arms Company. Its credo then, as now, was quality and innovation. From its inception, Crosman's principal products were airguns and airgun ammunition.
During the 1950's, significant growth occurred, driven by national accounts, including Sears Roebuck & Co., Montgomery Ward, and Western Auto, all of which sold Crosman's products under their respective brand names.
Then, in 1966, Crosman introduced its own Crosman brand airgun, the Crosman Pumpmaster 760, retailing for $27.95. Today the ever-popular, entry-level Crosman Model 760 still sells in the same price range, with more than 11 million sold.
Today Crosman Corporation is an international designer, manufacturer and marketer of Crosman pellet, BB and airsoft rifles and pistols, Copperhead ammunition, high quality Benjamin pellet rifles and ammunition. The company employs more than 300 people domestically, markets its products around the world and is seen as a leader in the shooting industry.
