    This one, 1899 pat. “F” model Benjamin.Took some creative resealing to get it holding again. 5 pumps throws a lead ball in the mid 500s. Actually bagged two cottontails with it, years back.

    Mine would have to be the Daisy Model 75 Scout. It is the same gun as the Red Rider basically but was built in 1948. I am currently replacing the fore and rear stock with a hand made custom Walnut stock.

    Ok… so question is:
    1. What is your oldest airgun that you have? 
    2. What was your oldest gun? 
    3. What was your first airgun that you had? 

     

    1. 1962 Daisy model 25 bb rifle     2. 1962 Daisy model 25 bb rifle     3. 1962 Daisy model 25 bb rifle

    😃 My Dad gave it to me on my 9th birthday, in 1962. I still have it, and it still works.

    The oldest one I still own is a Winchester 425 that I bought new in 1968 when I was 10 years old. I saved up for 2 years to buy it. When I got it would fire the 22 cal right thru our redwood wood fence and was beast to me at the time. It helped I kept it oiled up and dieseling. I loved the smell of the lead and oil smoke and would suck it in after each shot.

    Well, as of this point, my second oldest air rifle looks to be my Crosman 700 Pell Master .22. Built from 1968-70, the stamping, " 49" I found on the Co2 piercing button is either the built date (4/69), or worker #49 repaired it. In light of that, it might even be a 1968? It's in VGC at any rate, but the marks around the barrel retainer ring show that it's been apart at least once.

    ..  mid 1970's bluestreak….  my first gun ever was a a daisy bb cocker….my grandparents took me to colo when i was 7 and on the way back to their farm in west texas (ft.stockton) , we stopped at ruidoso , nm…..horse racing.  i helped my grandpa pick some horses and – essentially , i got my first bb gun from horse racing.   the sheridans are awesome – with modern pellets (jsb's) they shoot circles around any benjamin product.  i wish we could somehow resurrect sheridan.  i have one like this in my jeep with silencer and it is a steroid bluestreak.  with the scope and jsb pellets , it will get dime size groups at 40 yards. i need to find the pump arm linkage for this gun , as this pump arm is from a 397p .  i have the wood part – just need the metal pump arm parts.     .       .                          …                       …                    ..                         ….
