That brings back some memories. I had one of the CO2 operated pistols back in elementary school, but I think it was a Daisy fashioned like a Browning/High Standar type gun. Also had the Marksman. It lasted a long time. I recently got another Marksman and it did not hold up. The front section fell off cause the gun is now mostly plastic. I remember my old gun being all metal.

Those look like they were never used. Very nice, boxes and all.

Picked up an old favorite of mine. I had one as a kid. An original, pot metal, Marksman .177 air pistol. Shoots BBs as a repeater or pellets and darts up to a whoppin' 250 or so FPS. A buddy of mine had 2 of these and didn't even know how to use them. He had never fired it and was going to take it to a gunshow we were going to. He was going to sell one of them. He owed me half the rent of the gunshow table, so he gave the the Marksman air pistol and bought me lunch instead.

I had bought a "new" model of the same gun @ a year ago and it suxs. It was mostly plastic and was suppose to have an extended barrel with more velocity. Well, first time I dropped it, it broke at the hinge where ya break it open to load it. So much for imporved. The old gun I got is suppose to be unfired. I have not fired it yet. I might not. But, it brings back memories. Ya could actually bag a sparrow with it if ya got within 10 feet of it. Any further and it would usually bounce off if ya even hit it.

The old style Marksman. Much the same size a Gov't .45. Carried one till I wore it out. Backup to my CO2 powered Crossman rifle.



And the mre recent POS model Marksman. Noctice the duct tape mode to hold the barrel to the receiver. Ya have to remove the tape to load it and put it back on to shoot it or the barrel assembly will fly off.:p

A few other air gun I dug up from around the old rancho. I had some and the F in law had some of his and mine at his house. He is gone now and I have them all.

A Daisy Red Ryder BB gun. It had the stock cut off for the kids to use as my F in law did thnigs his way. Then when they got older he just duct taped the stock back on. Rear sight is really elevated for long range shots I guess. Still works o.k. Went through 4 grandkids and all are now in their 30s.



A crossman 760 .177 cal pellet or BB rifle. It is a pump up type rifle. I had a few of these as a teen and wore them out. This is one of 2 that I got for my 2 kids. This one still works, kinda weak.



An original, all brass, Benjamin pump air rifle in .22 cal. I found it in a pawn shop. It is marked Benjamin only and is not one sold by Crossman. My wife came with one of thiese packed in her luggage when we got married. Seems her brother did not want it. He was not much of a shooter, so she took it. We wore it out a second time. Her dad had already rebuilt it once. Don't have that one as one of the other kids claimed it. But this one works great.



Nothing like a real "Benji."
