SCOPED SHERIDANS = Let's see your's !!
« on: February 14, 2019, 12:56:48 PM »
  I haven't seen any pictures of scoped Sheridans in quite some time. Show off how you have put a scope on your Sheridan. Here is my favorite Blue Streak. 1962, drop dead gorgeous with a red/green dot scope. She shoots as good as she looks ! Notice the correct BROWN hand guard, for that year.

Mounted this Weaver on a Super-Grade. Fabricated rear mount to use existing hole in receiver. It worked well, although had to place hand over scope to pump.

Steve...here is mine with a BSA Red Dot Sight.   Put a center ring on the rear lens to optically center the dot on each shot.
As you can see, I also have a pistol scope and an open reflex sight that I can choose to mount on this rifle.
This rifle is a 1979 Sheridan Silver Streak. I bought it from Yng@hrt (Marty) here on the GTA Classifieds.
The rifle had been Resealed & Rebuilt By Rob112o.(Rob)
The bottom 2 pictures are the way Marty had scoped it.

Best Wishes - Tom.

 It has a 392 scope mount with hard rubber shims holding the mount firmly to the barrel. There is room enough for me to slip my hand inbetween mount and barrel for proper hand placement for pumping. The scope is a NC Star 2-7 x 30 with blue illuminated mildot reticle, after all it is a Blue Streak :)

Wish I had machining skills. Awesome!  Loved the way you used existing holes.

Here's my '69 Blue Streak Sheridan (previously shown here) with vintage JC Higgins x4 scope on mac1 mount, picked this one up about a year ago after reading all you guys comments here :D, turns out I like it a lot, very accurate.

Edit: Reloaded picture, old one was showing weird digital artifact on stock.

Here is mine, serial number is a 055, chart shows that to be a 1973 rifle.  I got it in 1985 for 15 bucks, I was working in a gun shop, it came in a bulk buy from a police department.  I was there when we opened the box and claimed it.  Lucky night as it's setup now the same as my boyhood rifle.  Years later I found the scope mount in a junk store and added the Simmons 4x32 about the time they started being sold by us.  It's really a nice piece of glass.
Wednesday I got it out and shot, here's a 30 yard group off the table with original yellow box Sheridan pellets.

Some old school stuff. Top is a 1968 with a Bushnell 4x on an Intermount, next is a 56-58 with a Weaver C4 on an unknown mount and on the bottom rests a 1959 with a Williams peep.

A 1977 Blue Streak with a Truglow 30mm red dot sight.  A Weaver rail from the junk room of a local gun store was adapted with a bit of "T" slot material.  Machining was done on a drill press with a X/Y vise and a Dremel side-cutting bit.

  Those are some very nice examples, above !

   My first Sheridan is a 1959. This has a Simmons 3-9 x 40 scope on a Sheridan cantilever intermount. The scope is high enough to easily allow loading of pelles & have room for the straight bolt to clear. I am totally used to the higher mount. This is my favorite set-up of all I have .

  My '67 has worn three or four different scopes.  Here it is with a Weaver B6.



  John, that's an interesting mount on your 56-58.  Attached to the receiver, can we see some close-ups?
