    Things have been picking up around here the last month. The last 10 days or so in particular. I won some vintage pellet tins, and a few vintage rifles to boot. This first one came from a friend who got it as a basket case and rebuilt it before selling it to me a couple days ago. A Sears, Roebuck & Co only Daisy 1894 model 30-30 built 5/76;

      And an eBay auction win, another Daisy 1894 model 30-30. A Buffalo Bill commemorative built 11/76;

      This one, also an eBay win, a Crosman 760-25. A 25 year commemorative in VGC. Still pumps and shoots hard;

      And this nice 760-C Pumpmaster, D/91 that looks hardly used and shoots great! 

    Here's some pics of my pellet tin collection that's grown quite a bit in the last month or so;

      These are German wadcutters. A bit light;

      These are NOS domed pellets;

    Yeah. They're all really cool. Working those levers even sounds like the real ones on those old TV westerns.

    Those are very nice scores! The lever action guns look really nice! My first pellet gun was a Crosman 760 back around 1977 or so. I had so many great times with that gun, it definitely holds a special place in my heart.

    When I got my first Beeman around 1980-81, I sawed the barrel and stock off of the 760 and made it into a pistol. Man, that as cool, really cool…until I tried to shoot it and couldn't hit a garbage can at 10 feet. Boys will be boys and that was the end of that gun!

    I also bought this tube of air rifle shot from Western Cartridge Company. I guess before Winchester bought them out, since the logo is the same?

      I also bid on this one, Winchester steel air rifle shot, " Kopperklad".

      I'm not sure of the dates, but that Western one might be close to 100 years old, being bigger than BB's? Like what was used in the originals from the 1890's to 1930-ish?
