To qualify for the Crosman National Series, shooters must use a Crosman or Benjamin product in an American Airgun Field Target Association (AAFTA) sanctioned field target match. Scores are normalized based on the top score of the match and added to their aggregate throughout the AAFTA year. 

Nearly 180 shooters participated in the series, recording 607 individual rounds across 258 matches. Among rifle participants, 98.8 percent used the Marauder while 84 percent of pistol shooters went with the Crosman 1720T.
