Seller's Description

Vintage Benjamin 22 Cal. Target Pistol - Model 132

This Benjamin Target Pistol, Model 132, is a rare find. I am told it was made in the early to mid 1950's, but I can't swear to that. It comes in the original box with all the paperwork along with an original, partially full, tin of 22 caliber pellets (the lid on the tin is a little messed up on one side). The box is in very good shape, but shows signs of discoloration due to age. There are no tears in the box. The gun is constructed of both metal and brass. Some of the finish is diminished. The photos pretty much tell the tale. It does pump up and hold pressure, but doesn't push a pellet out with much force (I tried one pellet to make sure it worked). It may need to have the leather rings oiled. The wooden grips and forend are also in excellent shape with no cracks, and if there are scratches, they are quite hard to find. On the round metal piece at the rear of the gun it is stamped Benjamin Air Rife Co., St. Louis, Mo. The model designation of 132 is also stamped in this area. On the left side of the tube above the grip is stamped "Benjamin Frankin", Made in the USA. The one thing I did notice is that the pumping lever has a tendency to fall down a bit rather than stay locked up. If it is pumped one time this seems to hold it in place. I have seen other old Benjamin air psitols, but none with the box and paperwork to go with them. This one is really nice with a box in great condition. If you are a collector, you can't go wrong here. Thanks for looking, and if you're bidding, good luck.
