Founded in 1945 by Mr. Ed Wackerhagen and Mr. Bob Kraus of Racine, Wisconsin,
Sheridan Products Inc. were manufacturers of the finest air rifles made in the USA

The Model A "Super-Grade" was the first pneumatic rifle introduced by Sheridan. It was followed by the Model B "Sporter".
Both of these classic rifles were designed to fire .20 caliber (5mm) cylindrical pellets known as Bantam 5's ammunition.
All subsequent Sheridan pellet rifles fired this same ammunition as well as the later .20 caliber "diabolo" pellets.
