Racine made in May 1970. This was my Dad's and he gave it to me last year. Needed rebuilt and done by Mac1.

They are factory Marlin pads that I had.

(I fit them.)  Pachmayer still makes a nice "rifle" pad that's quite similar ad also needs to be fit.

Nice looking. I especially like the upper one. The white line makes for a nice accent to the stock. Thanks for the info. Merry Christmas!

My 2nd post on GTA.  Yes, I have a nice Blue Streak, mfg 1975, bought it over the Yellow Forum classifieds 9-10 yrs ago. It's unmodified, needs drilling & tapping to mount the Williams 5D-SH sight on it. Of all my airguns, it's my favorite.

My first was a C9 steroid from Mac1 in 1999, followed by a 397 from Mac1. Last year I got a C9 and 392. The last two took some work to make them shoot, but they are still not as accurate as the the Steroid and 397. I have Williams sights but scopes work better with my old eyes.

Got the word from Tim @ Mac1 yesterday that my Blue Streak has been Steroided & is ready for shipping. I also bought an IA mount to combine with a 4X Simmons for a scout setup. That'll be my Christmas present this year.

Haven't had any pics of my Sheridan till now,so haven't replied. Now I have pics so there is no excuse.
Here is my 1963 Sheridan Silver Streak that I recently had steroided by Mac1.  I haven't refinished the stock or barrel since i purchased on the yellow forum.  The target has 18 shots through a ragged hole (albeit not a tiny ragged hole) @ 20 yards with the  original iron sights. I also attached a pic of my steel plinker targets.

Nice looking Silver Streak Jeff. And don't you just love those Steel Plinker targets? Especially the quad.

I have a mod c .20 i picked up used about 20 years ago. No idea what year it is. Has some barrel separation from the breach area extending about half way down the barrel. Still shoots straight. I have a tasco 3-9x32 scope mounted. It is my #1 choice for pest control in the yard.
 Sorry no pics. Trying to figure out how to get them from photo bucket to here.

My latest is a really nice mid to late '50s Silver Streak. I guess it at around '57. I got it from another member here on GTA. This is the 3rd Dan I've baught from this guy and this one is everything and more that the other 2 are. It was low on power when I got it and I was going to send it off the Timmy or another guy that was recommended. Yesterday I was fumbling around in the shop and came across a rebuild kit I had purchased and forgot about. So I carefully pulled "Sylvia" apart and cleaned her all out. She had alot of gunk in her. I installed the complete kit and put a light coat of secret sauce on all the inards. I brought her back up to the shooting bench and WOW !!! SHE LIVES !!! Sylvia is a hammer ! I'm on an 8 day shutdown from work due to a major model change on the Hyundia Sonata and my todo list is quite lengthy. I will try to get some numbers up though. Meantime, here is one of the original pix I got from the seller.

It took about 40 years but I finally got me a Blue Streak. A friend had a bunch of old pumpers that needed work, two 760's, two 'Dans, and a Crosman 101. The deal was I fix them all and get my choice of one of the 'Dans. I took the worst looking Blue Streak because there was something interesting under the old brown finish on the stock. Boy did I luck out! It now sports a Williams 5D-SH I drilled and tapped the receiver for.
