Just had this pistol given to me by a friend. He had it given to him by a friend, and that's about all I know about it. It doesn't work, but looks to be in not too bad of shape, possibly a good candidate for a resto...

So can anyone enlighten me as to what I'm dealing with here? My best guess is it's a Sheridan of sorts.

I'm having a hard time posting a picture, so if anyone wants me to pm them a pic, the help is really appreciated!

Air pistol in question. I kinda want to say a variant of the Crosman 130.

The breech on it resembles my medalist, so it could very well be a crosman.

I disassembled it and can't figure out how it cocks? It has an adjustable ftp and a brass valve that's the same diameter as a 13xx valve. But it has a weird check on the valve, and no transfer port. It's just a little brass cap that slides over the tail end of the valve.

If you can't tell, I'm still new to this. But I'm here to learn!

Definitely a 130! Now I can start researching it, thanks leadslinger!!

I'm surprised this thing is as old as it is! All things considered it's in pretty decent shape!

self cock'r...pumping cocks it, if its not shooting after 1 or 2 pumps then shes leaking so bad
that it will not cock. and it has a check exhaust valve that releases the air when struck by the hammer

this is more then likely what your problem is, there is...the inner exhaust valve seal goes here
you must be sure to replace this,

Wow, thanks for your response Ace! This forum is proving to be pretty awesome!!

So after a tearing it down, it seems that I am missing the piece that goes on the back end of the valve, the one with the transfer port in it!

As well, the suspect seal that Ace pointed out is completely intact. Hard as granite, but it's still there!

So does anyone think I'll have any luck finding the piece that's missing?

OK it may be there but you still have to replace that seal trust me...
no wonder you did not see a transfer port this is the peace your missing check pic...?

That is definitely the piece I'm missing.
