Nice lot of pistols Flint, look forward to you posting about them. Only one nickle finishef pistol as well.

Now the big question I have for you is since you've held a Sheridan A, has your opinion of them changed? They're still a over priced normally and Id take a Crosman TC and spend the difference else where but the build quality and balance  is great on them

I have held them before, best built American rifle of its time.  I find the styling doesnít age quite as well as it superb quality, breech receiver area seems oddly wide? In vintage market they are just way too high for my tastes.  An example to me is a English contemporary Webley Mark 3: its quality is equally superb.  You can buy one for $350?  Why? Itís not American, they made a lot of them.  Most Americans have not experienced a Mark 3?

Some nice additions Steve! Look forward to learning more about them as you get the chance to go through them in more detail!  The Plainsman pair is interesting, especially seeing they have some obvious variation to them.

Cool thing is they both sealed up last night, never expected it to be that easy.
