Sheridan H pistol
« on: October 12, 2016, 10:33:49 PM »
This was Minties H20 Sheridan. I've done some research and according to the serial no. It rolled off the  Racine line in 1982. It still holds fantastic pressure. Shoots as accurate as possible with the sights and my shaking hand..and is made of Brass and Stainless steel all anodized black. It's only closely related to the later Benjamin Sheridan H9a's and even less related to the Benjamin (Crosman) H9a's. They were all lesser quality, more steel and less brass, and a different pump arm mechanism. It is from the long extinct line of Sheridan 322 pistols and 132 pistols. I bought a set of Crosman walnut grips from TW Chambers who had them to my door for $45 nzd. They look nicer in my opinion than the plastic ones. It's been terrorizing the old flower pots and beer cans in my garden for the last week. It shoots .20 cal too. Got plenty of sting in them with 5 pumps. Classic pistol, it's going to be a family heirloom for sure.

So here I am in Dallas Texas..the places you have to go to get what you want:

These are .20Cal (5mm) Benjamin (so Crosman) 14.3gr cylindricals. $20 usd for 500 which equates to about $28 nzd. Not cheap, but impossible to find in middle earth.

So the airline will allow about 23 kg for your suitcase. 200 gm for a pair of undies and a tooth brush. That leaves heaps for pellets.  ;)

Well they're ok..no better than the H&N ones Mintie gave me. They're heavier obviously and look brutal but out of the pistol they don't seem to have any more penetration and after about 15m they'd start dropping off I'd pick. If you have one of the old Sheridan rifles like a blue streak or something then I'd recommend the 14.3gr. They'd handle the extra weight no problems

Airmag has an old Sheridan co2 rifle with a nice long barrel, it would love something heavier!

the Sheridan loves those H&N Pellets. Such a cool rifle, mighty powerful and very comfortable.
