Latest Crosman parts cost and a question
« on: August 22, 2013, 06:41:08 AM »
I made a parts order from Crosman last week and here's some latest prices:

-24" .22 barrel 2260-003 $14.10
-14.5" .22 barrel 2250-019 $13.02
-13XX valve assembly 1322C013 $6.08 (dang that's cheap)
-standard front sight 788-101 $1.15
-fiber optic front sight 760-201 $1.54
-carbine stock with screw holes 1399A001 $10.87
-760 barrel band 760D008 $1.15
-760 pump tube 760G094 $7.05
-Left 1701 grip 1700-031 $1.74
-Right 1701 grip 1700-032 $1.74

That's pretty cheap, but everything I got today added up to $67.07 with shipping (I skipped a couple things that no one cares about), they charged me $103 and change as I had a few other parts on my order (a couple Mrod magazines and a Powermaster 66 barrel mostly), there's no note that they are sending the rest later or anything, is this normal? I'll give them a call tomorrow hopefully if work isn't too insane...

Yup it's a weird thing with Crosman.Most of the time I get charged double,then "all" funds are credited back right before shipping.Then when the item ships they take out the original cost of the order.Crosman service is great,but I've never seen a billing system like that... ???
That being said,they always come through...Give em' a call,I'd say.

The closest Crosman service shop is 45 minutes away from work if I remember right (might be on in Salem, but they would be closed when I could get there), so there's no real chance of me getting to one :)

Call the shop. They may ship parts to you. I have a Crosman repair shop three hours away from me and there is no way I am driving down to visit with them for a few parts. But, I can call them, tell them what I need, they ship and I remit a PayPal payment. And, if they have the parts I need, I get them faster than if I order directly from Crosman.

a good thing to remember also is
 not all service stations are equal!!
i know of one with sky high prices better off buying on ebay or jg. i have a good one here
and another just below ebay or jg basically a toss up of which one you want to deal with
the one i go to has reasonable prices and repairs are reasonable too.
like 140 reseal parts. what most charge for the parts, i can get the gun resealed by an experienced professional for less than their parts price
he is in the air gun repair business not a parts supplier business as he tells me but he knows how i dont like crosmans billing process so he orders extra parts for me. cash-n-carry just the way i like it ;)

About parts availability,
  Everything has to come from CONUS across the Pacific to Honolulu!  No such thing as a service center or a repair shop here :D

Glen, you may have identified a niche market for the islands. Tinkers Airgun Repair & Custom Airgun Shop - how cool.

I don't know how much airgun business Glen would have in Hawaii because of the limited number of enthusiasts, but I can tell you that 100% of my repairs have had to be sent back to the mainland and NOTHING has been purchased here.
