What do you guys think of this old model?  I have several CR 150's and really like them.  Is it worth buying a CR 112 in good shape?

Yes, depending

on how much you pay. Its a bulk fill gun, so you have to have the gear to fill it. But you get lots of shots, good accuracy. Search the classifieds to see asking prices, or gunbroker.

A hundred bucks?

Maybe $30 for a good sausage tank. That's the sort of price range I'd be looking for if I didn't already have one. IIRC I paid that for a first rate one, still holding some years back. It came with a paper label with a number on it, I suspect from some collection.

Neat guns for sure. BTW, while you'll no doubt try, I didn't find the power adjuster wound down 'full blast' to be all that useful. Unless the 'blast' part is the idea?

re 112

February 15 2010, 7:33 AM 

I grew up shooting a 112 and it is a fine pistol. Very powerful and accurate to boot. I shot many a rat with my dads 112 back in the day. I still have that gun today and it still shoots great but I did send it to Ron Saul for a rebuild several years ago as it had started leaking many years before. Dad gave up on it and gave it to me. That is what got me into airguns again was having that old gun fixed up and started shooting it again. If you can pick up one of these fine old airguns do it. It will put a smile on your face every time you shoot it.

Never get in a hurry, it only slows you down.

CR112 Fill Tip......

February 17 2010, 8:12 AM 

A couple months ago ,I purchased a nice CR114 Rifle for $80 off GunBroker. No Tank, of course....and now I'm glad I didn't get one of the old tanks.....
that same week (I wish I could remember who's making them) , but I recently purchased a NICE QF Foster type adaptor kit got that fits All the Crosman Bulk fill holes from someone on the Yellow Forum. It was well under $20, and with a Foster type connector - all you'd need is any paintball Tank size you like , and the fill station (just an inexpensive on/off valve , and the female QF connector - just like you would for filling any Co2 Paintball Markker or airgun). Look around, or just put up a "WTB" Ad for one.

Find that nice 112 around $100 and the "Fill Station" - and you're off - no worries about replacing leaky old seals on the fill end , etc


Best of luck to you !
