My oldest airgun to date is a Sears variant 1400 that was given to me by one of my sons friends.  This gun was his dads and it was in need of some t.l.c.  His dad was going to toss it in the trash. I'm glad he didn't and it turned out to be a nice little shooter.

Here's a nice little Benjamin 250 I picked up last year. The prior owner put new grips on it and they handle better than what came with it. The 250, 257 and 252 are small for a CO2 pistol and use 8 gram powerlets. They were made from 1952 until 1956. This one doesn't have a serial number so it is one of the earlier one's. It a great can killer out to about 10 yards. If you run accross a working one at a decent price snap it up. I promise you will not regret it.

Wow, beautiful stuff here!  You guys have some serious finding/collecting/repairing/restoring skills...

Here's a few faves of mine:

1. My oldest one, a quarter-stock Diana model 27 from 1926.  Still puts 'em out well over 600 fps.




2. Later "DRP"-marked (Nazi era) model 27, another hard shooter.  The 2-stage trigger in this gun is incredibly good.




3. Webley Mk 3, from late 1950's (my avatar pic is a closeup of this one).  This well-tuned "No. 2 bore" (.22 cal) beauty is my ultimate can roller, LOL.




4. A Diana model 50M target rifle from around 1960:




5. Last but not least, an early example (serial 1010) of the Weihrauch HW 55.  I have several other 55's, which are pretty much my idea of the perfect all-round air rifle.

Mike that is amazing.

Terry M, I love the old Crosmans.  I've seen 120's before, but  I don't remember the 110. Is it .22 cal?

My two favorite Old-Timers. The 101 was a gift of a box of rusty parts. The 118 has been in the family since it was my Uncle's gun when he was a boy. It got passed around and ended back with me missing a few parts. Both are very accurate and like wadcutters.

Yes, the model 110 is .22, the 109 is the same gun in .177.  They were only made in '49, or so I've read.
