  :o   With the recent passing of my shooting partner and long time friend, this GEM is now mine to do with / move along to a collector or shooter ???

While I do love my spring guns, it won't get shot or loved destined to be a corner of safe queen never to been seen ... Thats Just not right !!!

In a sense this post is to share a beauty of a bygone era, as well a bit of fishing on what market there is for such a Semi rare specimen ?
I'm not asking for a public forum conversation on value leaving that to personal off forum conversations if one can pass along info from interested parties.

ANY WHO .... 1955 these rifles began production and not sure about this one ?   It is fitted with DST's ( Double Set Triggers ) and has the original Walther Peep sights. Stock is original too.

Scott, sir, I gotta tell you that even though I'm not a springer guy, this piece of history is so nice I'd be tempted to buy it. Thank you for sharing.

I think you should keep it to remind you of the fun you had with your friend.
