The original concept of building the best pneumatic rifle was realized by Sheridan Products Inc. with the Model A Super-Grade which was followed by the similar Model B Sporter. The subsequent Silver Streak and Blue Streak rifles are what Sheridan is best known for. These rifles underwent several design changes during their long production run. Detailed information on all the Sheridan pellet rifles was presented in my book "SHERIDAN / Classic American Air Rifles". The book is out of print and difficult to obtain so I am offering an abridged edition as an e-book.

The Art of Restoring and Preserving

All Sheridan pellet rifles are chambered for .20 caliber. During the development of the Model A Super-Grade it was determined through much testing that the .20 caliber pellet was superior in retaining velocity and delivered excellent penetration.
