Sheridan Air Rifle Recommendations
A compressed air rifle does feel a whole lot different from a spring type. Although this Benjamin Sheridan Blue Streak is not the lock and load type like the ones that we usually have in stores nowadays, it’s still a timeless classic for air rifles I should say.
Unfortunately, there’s a bit of an effort on your side to work on the pump. But considering the rifle’s accuracy, it’s still the perfect deal. To improve your accuracy, I highly recommend that you use a scope to nail your target all the time. It is also advisable to use another screw on the rear part to lessen the vibration. And to keep the rifle in top shape and in perfect condition, always add one pump of air every after shooting. It’s a very simple maintenance technique you shouldn’t miss out.
- No technique needed to shoot
- Extremely accurate
- Very durable (proven and tested for decades)
- Overall construction is very good
- High quality rifle
- Hard hitting air gun
- Penetrates deeply
- Hard to pump for some
- Vibration after a shot (negligible though)
- Compressed air rifle (the spring type is what is common in the market)
Benjamin Sheridan Blue Streak Comparison
Personally, I would say that it is not fair to compare this war-tested veteran to the new spring type air rifles of today – such as the Diana RWS 350 Magnum and the Gamo Whisper. Yes, these new rifles might have more knocking power on a long range scale, but c’mon, the Sheridan Air Rifle is on a different kind of level, even legendary.
