Early Hold-Down Safety Sheridan Blue Streak. 20 Cal Beautiful Walnut Stock Strong
Offer is for a very scarce collector's item, a high quality early Sheridan "Blue Streak" multi-pump air rifle in. This is from my personal collection. It pumps up great and holds pressure for long periods. It is one of the best shooting Blue Streaks I have had. It is a " hold-down safety" gun that was made between 1956 to 1959, no stamps on the gun to determine exact year of production, but the rear sight with one set screw and 2 dimples to hold it to the barrel was introduced in 1956 and the high comb stock was discontinued in 1959 thus those years were the only ones with all of this gun's features. These are the second most sought after of the old school early Sheridans. This gun has been lovingly used and has the genuine patina from hands pumping and shooting it wearing the bluing. It is in great shooting condition, my trusted air gunsmith completely restored the mechanics about a year ago and it still holds and shoots flawlessly. This medium sized multi-pumper weighs a bit over 5 pounds and just over 36 inches in length, its nimble and lightweight. The gun is nicely crafted and i t is simply a small, strong but elegant air rifle. The stock is original and in excellent condition with very minor surface rubs and a very few light scratches.
No barrel separation onthis fine gun. The metal parts have light wear from use , mostly from hands when pumping. See the pictures, they do a better job than I do with words. The gun should be good for years of trouble free shooting the completely rebuild.
It is simply a wonderful example of the early Blue Streak before Sheridan actually stamped that name on the blued Streaks. The gun is mid-sized, it is a solid, quality built American made rifle perfect for young as well as seasoned shooters. Check the pictures, they are of the gun you will receive and are descriptive of the gun's condition.
