Nice shootin. Good to see an old gun back in action, huh? I think me and one other are the only people in town that shoot air guns. Every yard sale I go to, I ask about air guns for sale. I will hit it good some day. I'll bet.

Nice Rich! I'm going to have to send my old Silver Streak down to have it tuned.
Be sure to tell TIM to re-crown barrel...makes huge difference...btw,...he has been doing alot of these steroids lately...

Nice...Tim did my old Blue Streak last Spring. As yours, Tim also re-crowned it. I tried quite a few pellets and I have found that the best choice is that Benjamin Cylindrical 14.3 gr...Accurate and packs a whallop. Them bengi's seem to be a very hard as far as lead goes...why is that? Nice smack down on the squirrel :sport037fn4:

Some pellets are certainly hard lead. Brand makes a difference.Think the Crosman's are mix of lead plus other alloys like tin..??

You won't be disappointed...using 6 pumps and Benjamin Cylindrical 14.3 gr, I'm hitting the mark at 40 yards now...the pistol scope (NcStar 2-7x32) has a duplex reticle. I've been practicing holdovers and at 40 yards using top of post under crosshair....
