I recently purchased a late 50' Sheridan Silver Streak that was in poor condition. It wouldn't hold, it  was full of oil, the metal was tarnished and most of the wood finish was wiped off.

SSCN0125
DSCN0120
SSCN0130
SSCN0128

I rebuilt the internals with NOS parts, cleaned up the metal and refinished the stock.

Shoots 650 ft/sec with 14.3 Crosman Premiers. I feel that I did the old girl a little justice.

Dang!  I’ve wanted to find an older one of these to fix up for a while now. Amazing looking and shooting gun!

That's a beauty.  I have a soft spot in my heart for straight-bolt hold-down Sheridans with the sleek pump handle.  The elegance and simplicity of design is missing these days.  Yours has an unusually beautiful stock.  WELL DONE!
