Hi I got these from my grandfather and after looking them over I realized I don't know how to work these two Benjamin's ? the King rifle seems straight forward . I think they might still work. looking online there pretty old the model 600 looks to have had the most use. should I try and see if these work without loading of course.

Wes never fire an air rifle without a pellet. This is called dry firing and does damage to the internals. They look like they are in nice shape and worth fixing up. They might just need some lubrication.
