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.

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....
