Response to Crosman 102 CG
This is the first time I've seen the cocking ring but it doesn't surprise me. I have a CG that has a number of extras designed to make it easier to load. Crosman's president at the time, Phil Hahn, was very interested in making air guns more accessible to all users, which was one of his reasons for going ahead with CO2 in the first place. There is a Crosman picture of a policeman helping a small, disabled boy in wheelchair shooting a model 150.
The 102CG with the removable magazine, was intended only for shooting galleries. About all it would take is for somebody to have problems cocking the gun and Crosman would have considered a way to help. The diablo style cocking knob, which didn't appear until 1949, was the ultimate response.
