Okay, post, take 2. Hard to add pics as you go along in here? Anyway, here’s some before and after pics of the Crosman 760 Powermaster variant 1 I bought with my newspaper route money. Rifle was build dated 6/70. Here’s how we found it in my #2 son’s AIR17 box in The Closet Of Lost Gold (2 Youtube videos with this title).
Then after it was cleaned up a bit;
And after 5 months of part time resto action. Added NOS 761xl barrel I found in Montana. Mac1 seal/piston upgrade kit. And rebluing all metal parts, save for the non-metallic gunmetal painted receiver. Stained the stocks with Minwax oil stain #224, ” Special Walnut”. B/C Perma Blue for all rebluing. Also added MOE 2.5″ picatinny rails for mounting the Simmons 4×32 scope, mounted with Hawke medium-rise 1″ weaver mounts.
