Sheridan Blue Streak Serial Numbers

I am brand new to the world of air gun collecting and have a few questions. I have just aquired an sheridan C-series air gun that has been laying in the attic for many years(not sure how many). It has a serial number of 465000 and is in what I would call almost mint condition. The only downside is that even though it is a beutiful gun and pumps up and fires it has very little power no matter how many pumps. It has the air hole with a warning not to oil.Is it still possible to oil this model? My question is does any one know what year this gun may be by the serial number.

And if I must find a repair part for the air chamber, where do I find the parts and how do I aquire the manual to learn how to tear it down for repair. I live in Louisiana and have called virtually every gunsmith I can find but none will work on an air gun. I would love to fire this gun on a range and posibally find more like it so I will be readin this forum as often as possible.

How to update serial number in bios lenovo m93p. [ 1.770775] [drm] Please upgrade your BIOS to fix this.

Dec 24, 2011  Benjamin & Sheridan Products Date of Manufacture In 1991 Crosman Corporation acquired Benjamin and Sheridan. In 1992 the manufacturing facility was moved to the East Bloomfield plant in Upstate New York. In the same year Crosman instituted the serial numbering procedure which included a date of manufacture as part. I BOUGHT A USED SHERIDAN SILVER STREAK. Down and youll see the dates for Sheridan serial numbers.

I want to thank any and all in advance who can help me. Title: RE: C-series sheridan (Silver Streak Post by: daveshoot on August 08, 2009, 05:37:24 PM. Serial number lookup is here: (The guru of Sheridan repair and mods is Tim at Mac1: (responds better to phone than email, though. Crosman Corp. May have the parts, but Tim probably does too and knows those things inside and out. Oil is probably not the issue.

You are always supposed to store the Sheridan (and most pumpers) with a couple of pumps in them, to keep pressure on seals and O-rings. The seals have probably dried and shrunk or cracked, but you still have a great gun and they can all be replaced. The Silver Streak is a desirable classic and a great shooter.

How does the safety work on your rifle? Does it have a 'rocker' safety (buttons on either side of the rear tang for Safe and Fire), or does it have a push/pull thingy at the rear of the tube? Crosman bought Benjamin-Sheridan in the '90s and the serial numbers changed to conform to Crosman's system of using the mfg date as the first three digits of the serial numberIn 1995 they switched from the old style soldered in valve to the current removable cartridge valve. You can oil the pivot points and try to get some on the rear of the piston that you can see in the slot.

A very small amount in the air hole won't hurt this one time. If it doesn't pump at all the pump cup is bad.

If it pumps and fires but like there was only one pump no matter how many you put in, it is probably the check valve. If air blows out the barrel when you pump, it's probably the exaust valve. I picked up an old rocker safety Blue Streak earlier this year. When pumped all the air went right out the barrel. I found a repair kit at Pyramyd Air that had the seals and the special tool to take the valve apart. The old 'Dan works great now.

Here's a link to the parts kits: Here's a link to a rebuild article that really helped me: Hope this helps.

I have heard some say to put a couple drops of oil on the pump cup and stand it in the corner for a day or two to allow gravity to pukll the oil down onto the valve. Im not sure if you are top put the drops of oil into the barrel or just on the cup. Maybe someone else will remmber which it is.

I have read that many have had luck with this to regain function from a bneji that had been sitting idle with no air in the reservoir.

I used the ser number look up and it shows to be made in 1979. It looks to be in very good condition but it shoots weak. No matter how many times you pump it, shoots like one or two pumps in it. Judging fromt your post, it may be the check valve. How do you go about repairing that?

Thanks Tim Title: RE: C-series sheridan (Silver Streak Post by: cnsjones on September 03, 2009, 04:06:22 PM. You'd need the kit and the instructions I liked to before. The valve is soldered into the tube so you need the special tool to reach down in the tube to unscrew the end of the valve to get it apart.

Cnsjones - 9/3/2009 10:06 PM I thought eBay did NOT sell airguns????? Things slip through at times.

Here is a Silver Streak on e-bay right now. Please don't be a dick and alert e-bay. The one I won just had the stock listed so I e-mailed him and ask did he have any other parts for it. He replied back that he had it all but it shoots week and that the winner would get it all. Here is the listing I won. Not sure you will be able to view this one or not as I had to be logged in to pull it back up.

I have been using e-bay for years and have learned to always ask questions. After I ask, he updated the page that he had it all. I think it was too late as most people had already looked at it once and may have not seen the update. That is what I was banking on anyway. One other tip, don't ask questions too early.
