Crosman's Nitro Piston 2 Named "Most Innovative" by Blue Book Publications, Inc.

ROCHESTER, New York — Crosman Corporation's innovative, new break barrel airgun design featuring Nitro Piston 2 technology has been announced as a winner by the Blue Book of Gun Values in its inaugural Firearms Industry Awards for the system's unique patent-pending components and overall design. 

According to Blue Book Publications, Inc., "Every year, arms makers and others in the firearms industry roll out their best and brightest new products at the annual SHOT Show.  It always seems that there are a handful of standout new guns and products that either rewrite the book on the physics of gun-making, or dazzle us with unorthodox engineering. Crosman's Nitro Piston 2 powered airguns have been selected as one of the most innovative new products of the year." The award will be presented to Crosman during the National Rifle Association's Annual Meetings in May.

"Our goal with Nitro Piston 2 has always been to deliver a game-changing break barrel platform to shooters, and Crosman has dedicated a significant amount of time, money, and resources over the past few years to make that happen," says Crosman Vice President of Marketing, Jennifer Lambert. "It's an honor to have that effort recognized by Blue Book and we can't wait for consumers to experience it for themselves when the all-new Benjamin Trail Nitro Piston 2 guns launch this spring," she said
