We’ll I finally got my 362 thanks to dlairgun.com!

I spent some time with it this morning and I’m very happy with the gun you get for the price you pay.

I don’t have a chrony so I won’t be able to make any comments on the fps specifically but it’s definitely shooting 14.3 grizzly and 14.3 Crosman Destroyers pellets harder than my 1322 (stock valve/stock pump/steel breech/polished Transfer port/18”barrel)

Accuracy is as good as any stock Crosman barrel I’ve shot so groups of about a dime @7yards bench rested. That’s all the space I have until I can get out to a proper range


Build quality is soooo much nicer than I expected. It has a nicer plastic than the 1322 currently have. Feels like any all weather stock you get with rim fires. Metal cross block, but plastic trigger and trigger guard but the trigger feels solid and breaks pretty crisp with acceptable trigger creep.
The pump feels solid with very little wobble. Definitely better than the 13xx pumps.

My first 50 shots, I would say a much better value than a 392s at twice the price, especially if you already have a 2240 steel breech you can throw in there. I’ll be doing that this weekend

Hope that helps anyone looking at this gun!

It sounds promising! Have a look to see if the 1322 trigger blade will work with the 362. I had a quick look at the trigger, sear, and housing and it looked to me like a 2260, so maybe..(Or did I dream it?). :drinkers:

Yeah I’m not too sure. I don’t have the time to break it all down right now. And I can’t get to it without removing the stock

And I wasn’t paying attention earlier and forgot to mention it’s nice to see an aluminum pump instead of plastic

sorry guys… i initially said the trigger guard was plastic. Upon further inspection, it is indeed metal and not plastic

Here it is with a 2240 steel breech,
Front yellow fibre optic sight from a 760

Looks awesome! Did you design/print the rear sight yourself? The color contrast is quite nice.

Thanks! I like it a lot for contrast as well. I wish i had the skills to design it but in reality i found the design on yeggi
There’s a few other things I want to try including a rotary mag and plastic copy of the steel breech for the 13xx platform since I moved this breech over from one of my 1322s. I have a friend that owns a 3d printer so it’s relatively easy to get things printed.

Has anyone done a complete tear down on one of these yet?

From the pix, it looks awfully 2260 based~ especially the trigger.
Not sure what to make of the pivot pin- I have yet to see a clear photo of this somewhat important component.
Inquiring minds would like to know the valve dimensions.
I've seen a few on-line velocity tables, but not much technical info.

Where did you get the fibre optic sight ?
I was looking around and they seemed to be only on US web sites.
I do like my 362 except for the plastic breech and the sights.

Fibre optic front sight was from a 760 I had lying around for parts
