Crosman Corporation, long known for innovation and quality in the shooting sports, earlier announced a licensing agreement with the U.S. Marine Corps to design, manufacture and market Marines Airsoft branded products. The U.S. Marine Corps engages licensing agreements in order to cultivate goodwill, promote a positive public image, and assist with recruiting. The 2012 Crosman Marines Airsoft line is designed to foster those efforts by marketing an upgraded assortment of Marines Airsoft products including pistols, rifles, kits, ammunition and accessories.
The 2012 Marines Airsoft product line features two heavy-weight, semi-auto CO2 powered pistols and two single-shot, spring powered pistols. The line includes three new pump shotguns, two AEG rifles, an AEG mini rifle, a spring powered rifle and a dual powered rifle. Marines Airsoft BBs are available in .12g camo, .20g heavy and .20g marking BBs. Also adding to the category are three new kits. The Battle Kit features a spring powered rifle, pistol and holster. The Target Kit has two spring powered pistols, a 12-inch target and BBs, and the Task Force 6 Kit includes an AEG rifle and a spring powered pistol and holster. New Marines Airsoft accessories include a grenade-shaped BB loader, goggles, camo pistol holster and a gel-trap target.
