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 been refinished, and look real good. There’s a chip under the pump handle, but does not look bad. The metal has been re-blued. The gun looks really nice over all.
It’s been cleaned, lubed, and resealed this one in our shop. Velocity tested at about 542 fps using lead pellets.
