I received this old jewel via USPS today
« on: January 11, 2019, 05:14:06 AM »
A super nice type 1 Crosman 150, this is the third one of these I've got and it's my first type one and it sure is a jewel.  There's a new seal kit for it on its way here that also includes the valve stem/poppet assy.

Thanks Kevin, I was pretty happy when I first laid eyes on it, seems like on the ebay auctions they're never as nice as the pic but that wasn't the case with this one.

Here's the first one that I got which is the only one of the three that I have that has a brass valve in it and the only one that I've sealed so far.
The pellets are ones that I cast from my NOE 217-20-RF mold and they're all right about 19.5 grains, they're great shooting pellets too!!!



This is the second one that I bought which I suspect was made before the first one that I bought.

You have some slick looking 150's.  :-*  I sure do like the Gen. 1 you just got.  Really good find.

Thanks for all the great replies everyone !!! I got her all sealed up yesterday and she seems to be a great shooter.  One thing that I did notice is on this gun lo and high power are actually about 100fps apart, on lo power it's shooting at about 315 and on high power it's doing about 420fps with the JSB18.13's. It's very consistent on accuracy too.  When I had the gun apart I couldn't believe how nice it looked on the inside, even the hammer assembly was really nice and clean looking.  I've probably had more shots through this gun in one day than it's had through it in 62+ years  :-*

I see the price marked on the box is $14.95. I'll give you $20.00 for it. A full $5 profit. 25% profit you can't pass that up.

;D  I paid $142.95 by the time it made it to my house, add another 31 dollars for the seal kit and I've got $173.95 invested.  I'm going to get hold of some peek or delrin and try making my own poppets for guns on my drill press but I'd much rather have a lathe for that but then you're talking way more money.

Here's a good five shot group I did at five yards with the nice one that I did the day I sealed it up.

shoots well Wayne
peek is too hard for seal material on co2
go with ptfe or carbon filled ptfe or delrin but I think delrin is a bit hard really
