To maintain the seals for a long time, remember to put one pump of air into the gun when putting it away after shooting. Whether you plan to shoot again the next day or not again for another 2 years, always put one pump into the gun when you're done shooting!
An American favorite for 50 years! The Sheridan Blue Streak continues to be one of the best-loved airguns. This .20 cal. rifle is a multi-pump pneumatic. The hardwood stock is sleek and lightweight and fits perfectly in your hands. The rifled brass barrel is finished in black and throws lead up to 675 fps! You can vary the velocity by the number of pumps (up to 8). The Blue Streak is ideal for hunting small game, plinking, target shooting, spinners and paper targets. It's a "must have" in every gun locker!
Although this gun has been made for decades, the manufacturer continues to put extra fine details in the rifle, such as a swelling in the forearm to make it easier to pump and a fully adjustable rear sight. If you want to drill out every last bit of accuracy (0.50" at 33 ft.), pop a scope on it. Use the B272 intermount to do that.
Don't forget to click on the AMMO link for a list of recommended pellets. The ACCESSORIES link has a list of scopes, fun targets and safety gear you'll need.
To scope this gun, you'll need an intermount. The Crosman intermount has an 11mm dovetail. The others are Weaver rails. Match up the right rings with the intermount you select!
Things I liked:This is a time tested classic design. Things I would have changed:I prefer the older models (original Sheridan) where the spring actuated safety is located on the butt near the natural placement of your thumb.
Things I liked:I ordered three of these air rifle because I heard the Sheridan brand is going to be retired. This brand is fantastic in quality and accuracy. If the current ammo shortage continues i will not have to pay higher prices for 22 lr. I purchased 4 tins of JSB Diabolo Exact in the 20 caliber. The pellets are perfect, I will be ordering more of pellets in the near future to stock up. I love to target practice and now I can take 2 of my grandsons with me. Things I would have changed:Nothing. What others should know:Nothing
I'm comparing the current CB9 (.20) with the Benjamin 392 (.22) to determine which to get. The two look nearly identical but I notice the 392 is about $40 cheaper. I have .22 pellets on hand, so I'm inclined to go that way. However, if the CB9 is better made and would last longer, I would consider buying it. I would probably use the gun for target shooting, squirrel hunting, and maybe an occasional woodchuck. Other than caliber, are there substantial differences between these guns?
Dan the Man from USA:
Not really, the .20 cals were just rarer.
America's favorite airgun for over 50 years. Pump up to 8 times to increase power for hunting, plinking, target shooting and spinners. Black barrel finish.
