You know your Crosman's Steve...through air. ;)

Is '49 the correct date?

Yes it would be know as a 1949, given the characteristics, but they were possibly made for 2 to 3 years? The earliest had the old solid bolt probe, and a J serial number.  (My gloss finish). The last had through air bolt, Diablo hammer no serial number. (My Kringle paint).  Yours would probably fall in the middle to late category 1950?  But who knows? 

The absolutes with the 1949 are steel barrel and bolt bracket.

Ever thought about making an insert to reduce the cubic inches of air pumped per stroke, thus making it easier to pump with a higher attainable pressure?  Would that be feasible ?   Thought it would be easier on the mechanism as well as the human part.

Sounds feasible Keith, although I have many coals in the fire right now to give something like that the attention it needs. I'm too entrenched with my vintage Benji's at the moment, taking them apart & photographing them to further my research of transitional models.
