    That is a cool unique bb gun, I do not recall ever seeing one quite like it. Great Item!

    Cool I have two of them, one my grade father gave to me for my 8th birthday, and the other one was his, his is much older than mine, the one he gave me was new in 72, his is probably from the 30s or 40s, But thay are cool little rifles, and are not toys.

    Have the same gun. It's missing the piece where you load. When do you think it was made and how much might it be worth? If you could reply, I would appreciate it. Thank you!

    Jeffrey : I have a Crosman pump pellet rifle that I purchased in 1949,in great shape.A few years ago took it in to a local shop to get the front sight replaced.The owner checked it all out for me and of coarse wanted to buy it.I am getting too old to put more than a couple pumps into it so will pass it along to one of the grandchildren.I enjoy just getting it out of the case and walk down memory lane.Thanks for posting the photo.
