OK, here we go...
I went ahead and pretty much bought as much of what the guy had that I could. Once you see what I got, you'll understand why.
I got a total of 18 guns. I gave the only chinese made models to the brother in law for hooking me up with this find as he wanted em. They were a couple CO2 UZI style pistols with wire stocks and external tank modifications. Chinese, but cool nonetheless.
The good stuff is preliminary as follows till I have time to properly sort, document and photograph. For now, these pics will suffice. I will state here , I will be selling almost all of these and will entertain offers ONCE I HAVE THEM SORTED. If you're interested, feel free to PM me and I'll try to respond asap and keep some semblance of order. I can't make any promises or clear and cut deals till I am certain what I am dealing with. Been a long day, and the holiday is going to slow things down.
The side lever at the top is a Diana 48/52 and I may keep that and the Crosman 160. The German BSF pistol will belong to the spouse. Other than those, the rest is up in the air..... All of this stuff is vintage, at least 1977 or older as far as I know at this moment.
I have several pre 77 Sheridan Blue streaks, two Silver Streaks, a Benjamin Franklin 177, a couple Crosman 2240 pistols, A Crosman 160, an as yet unidentified BSF break barrel, and a 1970 Smith and Wesson Model 79G new in the box and never fired or loaded with CO2. **Whew**
The one that really has my interest and curiosity going is the Kessler 22 cal. Preliminary research says they were only made for 3 years and are quite rare.
Condition ranges from fair to very good except for the pistols which range from good to mint.
Any additional info on any of these is greatly appreciated.
