My Blue Streak is 50 years old this month. Sure wouldn't know it to look at it, this one still looks practically new. Hard to believe I was only 13 when it was made. It's sure weathered the last 50 years better than I have. I have several other old pumpers, one or two may be just as accurate as this one. But for power, accuracy, craftsmanship and overall quality in a classic airgun, you just can't beat a Sheridan!
If my Sylvia isn't older than me sure is close to it.I can't remember if she's early 50s or late 50s.But she is prettier than me and functions better than me.
Yes, there is something special about the sheridans. My oldest one (1951) is 66 years old this year (one year older than my parents!!!). Still shoots 625 with cylindricals, and like most sheridans, is very accurate. As far as I can tell, it has never been worked on. Impressive. The squirrels don't really like it though
While a Benjamin 392 is a decent rifle, it pales in comparison to a Sheridan.

It's true that bullet placement is key with any air gun or firearm. Proper pellet placement with a Dan is deadly. I was a dedicated Dan owner & remain so to this day. Then I hunted with the 392. There is a distinct difference in knock down power between the two. The bunnies do the dance with my Dan's. Little dancing if any with the Benji.In addition; Dan's are everywhere to be found. Try finding a 392.
