600 Custom

After parting with this satin nickel plated custom Crosman 600 several years ago because someone offered more than I thought it worth (at the time), I missed it badly and lived too long without Crosman's  coolest vintage classic Co2 pistol.

Knowing I'd eventually own another of these .22 semi-automatics, I purchased a set of gorgeous custom walnut grips but didn't find a worthy 600 until over a year later. First impressions of the low-mileage 600 were a bit disappointing, as I was reminded of their fickle-feeding nature.

600 LS

But after finding 14.3 grain JSB Express the best feeding ammo in this 600 and putting a few hundred rounds through her, apparently the freshly-overhauled classic 'broke-in' to now be the most powerful and flawless-feeding 600 I've owned. She's now gone through five cartridges without a mis-feed (almost 200 rounds), and holds full power through 28 rounds of a 36 shot power-band per cartridge.

Not as accurate as the long-barreled custom above, accuracy seems to be improving with use. I may eventually have a longer barrel machined, depending on how much accuracy improves with further break-in, testing, and monkeying.

Regardless, I figured out life's too short to live without a nice Crosman 600. Sure glad to no longer be living without one!

Hi Ron,

I like both 600s shown.  I like the added barrel length and scope mount on the top one and the grips on the bottom one.

What kind of scope mount did you use?

Thanks,

David Enoch

Those are the scope mounts I sold for about thirty years that allow scoping of various vintage Crosman rifle and pistol models, David (38 T & C, 150/157, 160/167, and 180/187). I captured many state and national champion titles using those mounts (on half-century old Crosmans).
