Things I liked: Well made, good finish, easy to operate. My father owned one 50 years ago, but it was stolen and I've wanted to replace it since. This one seems every bit as good except the trigger (see below).
Things I would have changed: Trigger pull is heavy, but there is information on the web about reducing the pull and cleaning up the action. Something I would leave to a shop that is familiar with Sheridans, but nice to know there is a fix.
What others should know: I am using the iron sights until I get used to shooting again, but bought the scope combo and will review them when I install them. The gun looks to be dead on at 10m out of the box, 1/2" group with Benjamin ammo. Gotta love it!
Things I liked: This is a very nice setup. I love mine, and it is very accurate. The scope is very good and adjustable. I think this is a bargin, and mine came with a Plano hardcase. Very nice for most small game.
Things I would have changed: Not much, maybe an easy pumping mechanism.
What others should know: Kind of hard to pump after two pumps, not for young shooter's.
Things I liked: I purchased mine locally, but the set up is the same: mine is the Silver Streak with scope. Wonderful tool! I bought this because I missed the old rocker safety Blue Streak I had as a young teen many years ago. I like the new gun better, with the conventional safety button and the scope. I've shot a few hundred 5 mm pellets through it, all at paper targets at ten to twenty yards. I no longer hunt.
Things I would have changed: There is very little I don't like about the Blue Streak or Silver Streak. It is just about right for hours of plinking fun or some serious target practice. It is light to carry, easy to cock, and not hard to pump for someone of average strength. It is powerful enough to hunt with, as I killed many squirrels with my old rocker safety, open sight, Blue Streak I had as a kid growing up in rural Nebraska.
What others should know: There is a real advantage to having the scope for adult sized people, as the rifle is amall and it gets uncomfortable to put your head down to line up with the open rear sight. Get the CB9 Combo! If you are only going to buy one air rifle, this is the one to get. Skip the springers that are hard to shoot well, or the high dollar PCPs, at least until you get this and shoot it a good long time. Then move up if you need more power or accuracy, but keep in mind there is not much out there that is better than the CB9 Combo if you take into account all the factors including light weight, low price, great accuracy, sufficient power, carbine-like compactness and ease of use. I will give mine to my son, but only after I'm gone.
