First off, I want to thank Crosman for providing these two guns for review! Now they're not exactly new guns by any means but for sure worth showing and doing some update reviews for.
So for all intense and purposes if you have watched any of my other revise on this line of KWC Beretta /Taurus BB pistols and even Airsoft versions then this BB gun should be really familiar to you.
History of the Taurus PT-92:
It is often referred to as a Berate 92 copy but in fact it is a Taurus PT-92 replica. The Taurus PT-92 is a product of Brazil, Taurus actually bought the entire Brazilian Beretta factory back in 1980 including drawings, tooling, machinery, and a very experienced work force to make the guns. Taurus immediately sought to improve on the Beretta design, resulting in the popular and acclaimed Taurus PT-92.

Next up the Crosman American Classic P1322.
The American Classic P1322 is basically a .22 caliber version of the .177 caliber 1377 Pneumatic Pump Air Pistol. So make sure to watch the video reviews I have already done for the Crosman American Classic P1377. Other than caliber the .22 caliber version at least in Canada is more powerful since it has not been detuned for Canada import. The .22 caliber version has a claimed fps of 460 which is under our 500 fps import limitation while the standard non detuned .177 caliber version has a max claimed fps of up to 600 which can set off alarms at customs. For this reason the Crosman American Classic P1377 Canada version is detuned to shoot under 500 fps.
Crosman use to make a similar version of the Crosman American Classic P1322 called the Back Packer which had a slightly longer barrel and came with a removable stock. You can kind of replicate this gun by adding the stock but it will have a shorter barrel. Keep in mind there are a ton of mods available for this series of Crosman airguns including barrels, bolts, trigger, Internals stocks, scope mounts…
PHOTOSpecifications for the Crosman American Classic P1322:
- Metal and plastic construction.
- Pneumatic pump.
- .22 caliber lead pellets.
- Single shot bolt action.
- Rifled metal barrel.
- Single action only.
- Up to 460fps using lead pellets (10 pumps).
- 1.88 pounds (853 grams)
Keep posted for my full update reviews for these airguns...
