    Boys, that's some fine lookin' collectables y'all have there. Here's a pic of 6 of my old, sorta-vintage Crosman Co2 rifles. Two restored/restomodded. First at the top is a 160 Pellgun variant 1 from 1955-56 model run. The second from the top, a model #70 Pellgun from '73 has a Weaver 3-5×28(?) scope on it from the 50's built for the pre-64 Winchester model 70. Dropped right on without even moving the ring's positions! It's among the first variable power scopes to come out. Third one down is a Hahn Super BB Repeater, built 8/20/67 in near-new condition. Next is a 73 Saddle Pal built 10/77. Then the model 99, no build date stamp? Looks like early 1966 from numbers inside? And the Model 700 Pell Master rolling block, 4/69.

      And my oldest of some 15-760 Powermaster/Pumpmaster's, the 760 variant one from June 1970 at the top. Forgot about the 760-A I was watching on eBay, darn it. I have the 760-B, C & D. Second one down is a 760-25, 25th anniversary from 1991. Then the 761XL from 3/76. the next two under that are 760 Revelations from Western Auto.

    and these, a 66AB Powermaster 6/86, AIR17 from 8/86, a Diana 24D built 12/94 & a RWS 320M about 2002. And a Daisy model 104 on top of the floor rack. Yes, it is a 104!

      and I have two of these Sears El Dorado 880's;

    And two Co2 pistols I just acquired, a Crosman 357-6 (Colt Python copy) from 1/91. And a Frontier Peacemaker model 44 .22cal from 5/71.

    I am finally finished restoring my Hy Score 801.  It turned out good. What do you think. There is something special about taking a gun from the graveyard and giving it new life. The gun cocks buttery smooth and the trigger has a very light pull. there is hardly any recoil, due to it being a low power youth Springer. ,  Useing Crossman premier pellets.These averaged 417 f.p.s. and ranged from 414 to 422. Will be shooting it to test accuracy soon.

    Brace of special rat busters. 1958 and 1960 cranked up of course because I do not like modern pistols, being too space commando, or too bulky.

    Diana 15 , Winchester 416 and a Hy Score 808 .177 youth bb/pellet guns I have completely restored in the last couple week. The 15 has a story behind it and so I left the stock with nik's and initials.

    Daisy No. 102 Model 36 with a nickel finish. They were manufactured between 1941 & 1942, then again between 1945 & 1947. This is a 1945 model.

    I was going to post a Webley Mk3 but haven't gotten around to it. Here's a rarely seen in the States BSA Breakdown pattern. Anybody guess why they call it a breakdown pattern? It's a 1936 or 38.  I forget.  I'll have to look.  Anyway……………….. The gun is lighter than a 39 1/2" Light pattern. Yet it's a little longer. .177 cal. The cylinder is smaller diameter. Not as powerful as a Light pattern either. The  "doll's head" is missing from the front sight. I'll have to solder a brass bead in it's place. I've done that to several before. The front sights are cast steel. The "doll's head" is often snapped off. Sometimes filed off for a finer bead.

    The Jaguar Cub is one of the most rare co2 pistols. This one was made in 1975 and is in ok cosmetic condition, mechanically functions perfectly. Bought it as novelty collectors item. It’s a fun little can killer.


    4.5” in long with a 2.5” smooth bore barrel. Takes 8 gram co2 carts. Came shooting 8 gr pellets at 227 fps.
     

    Upon taking it apart the transfer port crumbled apart. It looked like it was made from some cheap resin. Made a new transfer port from a small block of plastic.

    Wanting more power I added a bolt to the hammer spring that acts as a spring guide and gives enough tension to squeeze extra juice from the valve. I also added a vigilante barrel and polished the trigger/sear and hammer


    With the new mods it was clocking in 129 fps faster! Shooting 8 gr @ 356 fps. Best of all the rifled vigilante barrel made it a hell of a lot more accurate than the stock smooth bore barrel

    1937 Diana Model 25

    A Diana model 25, made in 1937 sounds so odd to me? Since my Diana 24D was made 12/91? Makes me wonder who came up with their numbering system? Anyway, it shoots great still and hits pretty hard yet.

      And this RWS 320M I've traced back to 2002 so far that was BAM build #137! Grip area of the stock is cracked and someone repaired with a wood screw?! I finally found a breech seal, along with NOS barrels mike has at Precision Pellet Precision Pellet – || Welcome || (airgunshop.net)  I also need a new suppressor, since this one's missing the part that screws into the front. Originally made by eagle, i need another one, or the front part.
