What a beautiful and accurate gun. Is it still being produced. Give us some details, you have my curiosity built up.

Unfortunately, they are not in production anymore.

Fill pressure is 200bar and if IIRC, the ending pressure is 140. To fill with a hand pump is a piece of cake. Power is adjustable as is the trigger, which is pretty good.

Thank you, enjoy it. It is obviously a quality made unit and will give you years of excellent service.

Mine's a 5MM Sheridan pump pistol, not that accurate, but works good for the jobs I use it for.
Had Crossman pumps as a kid, lots of good memories, fun guns.

That is a beautiful gun.

Is it a pre-Benjamin/Crosman Sheridan?

Either way they are nice.

I have a single stroke pneumatic Beeman P3. Super trigger and accurate. Still in production.

No, my rifles are, but the pistol was not pre Benjamin.
I am not 100% sure, but think it was one of the last 5MM pump pistols they made.
AFAIK The 5MM's were unavailable right after I got this one.
One of the rifles is a Silver Streak, slab side, I think first year Model C production, 1949.
