The third variant Crosman Model 140 was made from 1956 to 1962. They do not have a spoon handle breech cover, and do not have a die-cast trigger housing like the 4th variant. They’re also the most valuable of all 4 variants. It is a .22 caliber single shot, multi-pump air rifle. It features a rifled steel barrel, hardwood stock and machined metal construction.
The wood stock and forearm are in about 90% condition, but there is a dark patch on the rear top left side of the stock with a small crack (pictured). The metal retains about 70% of the original blued finish mostly due to thinning, the wear is nice and even. There’s a couple of marks right side pump handle (pictured).
This gun was cleaned, lubed, and resealed in our shop. Velocity tested at around 612 fps with 10 pumps using 14.3gr lead pellets.
