Solleng “AS IS”. The Rochester air rifle is a .22 caliber, bolt action single shot, multi pump with a two piece stock and black oxide crinkled finish. They were manufactured by the Monroe Gasket and Manufacturing Company in Rochester New York around 1948. This is the only model known to be made by that company. The original retail price was $10.
The stock has a little wear, but is in good solid condition. No chips or cracks. The receiver retains about 90% or better of the original black oxide crinkled finish. The blue finish on the barrel and air tube is starting to get thin, but is nice and even.
Velocity was tested in our shop at around 583 fps using lead pellets.
