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 Silver 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 nickel and throws lead up to 675 fps! You can vary the velocity by the number of pumps (up to 8). The Silver 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: Every thing seems to be great. A great hunting piece and it groups verry well..

Things I would have changed: Sheridan seems to have put it together with a lot of fore though. I wouldn't change a thing.

What others should know: I use this air rifle for gray squirels and found it good out to 50 yards. Heart shots seem to kill on impact and they are dead before they hit the ground. A great all around small game getter, To date my silver streak has taken over 100 kills and never once let me down. Fun for plinking and very well made..Mine is a 20 cal. and is everything I could ask for in a fair priced air gun.

Things I liked: I have had a Silver Streak for about 35 years and it is still like new. I mounted a 2x Redfield Long Eye relief scope on it and it shoots tight groups and hits hard. This is a quality piece of work, with excellent materials and will never go out of style. Of course, when I bought it, I paid about $55 for it. I am the original owner, and I will pass it down to my son. The gun has enough power for hunting, can be used for target shooting, and is a lot of fun.

Things I would have changed: The trigger pull could be a little lighter, which would lead to better shooting, but it is better than some air guns I have shot.

What others should know: A great gun that is built to last a lifetime (or more)!

Things I liked: I like everything. I am a long time Air Gun user and have owned the Sheridan and Benjamin before. I also have the RWS 300R and RWS 52. The odd thing is that right out of the box, I am better able to hit my plinking target (Full size coffee can on a string, located over 110 feet from the firing point) with the Sheridan than the RWS Rifles. For reference, a .20 caliber pellet held at arms length entirely covers the can located downrange, despite being a large can, at the distance it appears quite small. The impact point was perfect, I had no reason to readjust the sights. I made sure that the Sheridan was still made in America before I purchased. Before I purchased, I thought the trigger guard was plastic, but it appears to be cast, perhaps aluminum. The trigger assembly is a drastic improvement over the Sheridans made 20 years ago. The trigger is a well formed apparently steel trigger (my RWS Rifles have plastic triggers, plastic trigger guards, and a plastic front sight). The safety has been updated to a cross bolt type, great improvement, as the old safety was too easy to bump to the firing position. I used one drop of PellGun Oil in the tube assembly, lubricated the pump assembly hinge points, and the receiver bolt as well. The gun performed excellently.

Things I would have changed: It appears that the Sheridan and Benjamin look the same. I wish there were cosmetic differences to motivate me to purchase the Benjamin as well. (The Sheridan and Benjamin formerly had different shaped stocks). Also, I wish the plastic grip over the front of the receiver was available, it cushions the hand as the gun is pumped. It was installed on all Sheridan Air Rifles from years ago.

What others should know: I prefer an Air Gun that can be ready at a moments notice, not one that I refill from a Scuba Tank or need to take a large CO2 Cylinder to my local compressed gas store to fill. The Sheridan fits the bill perfectly. Oh, worried about the multiple pumps necessary for each shot (I usually use 6 pumps or less)? Ever hear of exercise? I'm sure that the calories lost would benefit many of us after the Holidays. Also, improved muscle tone will likely result in the muscles required to pump the Air Gun. In a world of people who are increasingly not getting enough exercise, don't downplay the significance of multi-pump pneumatics. Use and enjoy.
