Crosman To Supply Army JROTC Sporter Rifles.

Crosman Corp. has been awarded its second contract to be the official supplier of sporter class air rifles to the Army JROTC program. The Army has announced it will purchase more than 13,000 Challengers, adding to the more than 4,000 rifles purchased in 2016. The air rifles will be built at Crosman's headquarters in Bloomfield, N.Y.

"For the past several years, I've had the honor and privilege to work with the JROTC instructors and their cadets. It is incredibly rewarding to know that our product helps them become better competitors," said Mark Deboard, shooting services manager for Crosman.

The 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 Challenger is a three-position competition rifle featuring 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. We're proud 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," said Jennifer Lambert, marketing and product development VP for Crosman.
