hey-Hey!!!,I like that S&W. Had a 79G when I was young...no idea what became of it. Still have the Sheridan though, and another besides. Would love to fall into a 77... How does yours shoot?cheers,Douglas
Ck, I had one of these and resealed it myself. It was a while ago and I don't remember it being anymore difficult than any other.I do remember that there was a specific sequence to follow to take it apart and get it back together, one of those part A must be in place before you attempt to fit part B type of things. It was a hard shooter when done but this was when my Chrony went missing, so I don't have any numbers. but it was as strong as a good Sheridan and very accurate. If you have yours apart, you know how well these are made, they are the real deal.I traded mine to Tim Schmidt, he is a real fan of these. If you need parts he probably has them. I got the parts I needed from Rick @ Precision Pellet.I have a scan of the manual and some exploded pictures of the valve etc. If you need them let me know and I'll e-mail them to ya..Enjoy that rifle, I would have kept mine, except my current limitations to my shoulder make the big guns hard to shoot and pump.
Try Rick Willnecker @ Precision Pellet.He has many of the obscure parts for the older guns and actually has some of the harder to get stuff manufactured new.717-382-1481www.airgunshop.netI discovered him a couple years ago and use him for just about everything I need. He is a great guy to talk to and knows what he's talking about, great resource!Never met him but have talked on the phone many times.
hey-Hey!!!,There is one for sale now...it is labled as 'pick up in MA only'...and I am not in MA, but MI...now if I were in ME it might be possible...grrrr, what am I going to do?cheers,Douglas
