Response to Why does Crosman use brass barrel on 39x?

It's my understanding that Crosman, and for decades before, Benjamin and Sheridan, used brass for barrels and compression tubes (main body of rifle) because pumping and firing could generate moisture, which would quickly rust a steel barrel (even though Crosman had lots of pumpers with all-steel construction). Brass was impervious to corrosion from moisture. Plus brass is easy to machine, is easy on factory tooling, and can be soldered together into subassemblies.
