How is it that a number of Canadian dealers just started carrying the old Crosman PFM 16? It has been around for years.

Hardly a new airgun.

Princess Auto was clearing them out for $25 in 2018/19.

Never had one, but understand it is all metal & has nice weight.

true. ..and a 15 lb trigger, no accuracy w/ non nonadjustable sights.

at least my princess auto Swiss Arms version was that.

my trigger finger actually got sore shooting it.

i gave it to a vendor at my local flea mkt.

in good conscience, i wouldn't sell it to anybody.

I read that they were not the best shooters & had very heavy trigger pull. So I passed on it, even at a price of $25.

That's sort of why I find it curious that AGS, Cabela's, etc, have brought new stock in for sale. Are not there better air pistols out there to bring in?

i don't mean to disparage any commercial enterprise selling the Crosman PFM 16 (PFM = Pistol Full Metal)..
i'm fully aware i bought a discounted, off-brand, refurbished gun when i bought from princess auto.
