The third variant Crosman Model 140 was made from 1956 to 1962. They are the first variant to 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 have a few nicks and dings, but look nice. The metal retains about 85% of the original blued finish. There’s a couple of marks on the barrel near the rear sights where it appears there may have been a scope mount at one point.
This gun was cleaned, lubed, and resealed in our shop. Velocity tested at around 637 fps using lead pellets. Shoots good!
