The Smith & Wesson 78G is a CO2 powered, single shot, .22 caliber, pistol with a manual safety, gun blue finish, and brown plastic grip. These were styled after the Smith & Wesson Model 41 semi auto. They were manufactured between 1971 and 1980. This is a great CO2 air pistol in the original box, including owners manual and literature plus a vintage S&W .22 caliber pellet tin.
The metal retains better than 95% of the original finish, and the grips are in excellent condition.
It was recently cleaned, lubed, and resealed in our shop. Velocity tested at around 402 fps using lead pellets.
