I have been working on this vintage Benjamin collection for about 5 years. I lack a few more although there is finally light at the end of this long tunnel.

The collection consists of "Transition Models" and spans the time period from late 1930's (the end of the bicycle pump models) to the first underlever prewar model through 1997 (the end of the "P" style trigger group & the beginning of the "trigger pack").

Most of the guns in this collection are boxed w/docs. Many show signs of never being shot and look like they just left the factory. Those were found through acquaintances in the hobby. The others found on various auction sites.
