The Fortitude—Let's clear the air!
« on: June 26, 2018, 06:19:52 AM »
Once again, Crosman-Benjamin has pushed back the delivery of their new regulated Fortitude airgun to late August. As we all know, Matt Coulter won the airgun in the last giveaway, and has patiently waited for its arrival. But the time has come for him to make a decision, and that decision is his alone. All said and done, I want it known that this delay was NOT caused by Pyramyd Air, from whom the airgun was ordered. That blame lies directly in the laps of the powers-that-be at Crosman-Benjamin. Perhaps their new ownership is being overly cautious, due to the fact the marketplace for fully-regulated, low price-point airguns is a bit too crowded?

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.

I, for one sure hope that this gun has been delayed because Crosman is correcting initial defects and perfecting the gun.  Hate to think that the delay is trying to find the lowest bidder to produce the gun.

Actually what happened is they had a huge contract to fill and just got that finished so now they will be focusing on the Fortitude I suspect late July we will see them shipping.
