Impulse buy: Benjamin 130 pump pellet pistol

Pretty dumb, really!

I was searching for something else, and accidentally came upon this GB auction for a Benjamin 130 pellet pistol with less than 10 minutes to go. Off and on, for years, I've checked on this pellet pistol.....they seem to be very desirable items for what they are.....

After I made a quick search for others, there was one really ugly one for $80 bucks, and this one had a current bid of around $75. I bid, I won it for $91 bucks.....two bidders, me and one other person. I didn't think I would get it, but it's now mine! After I bid, I was hoping someone else would outbid me, but it didn't happen.

So, tell me.......did I pay out the wazoo for this?

Looks like it's in decent shape with some blueing missing on the pump housing. Owner claims it works perfectly, 128 feedbacks with 100% positive A+ rating, so it looked like description was probably good.

Oh well, overpriced or not, it's now mine! I've wanted one of these since I was a kid, and never had one. I never thought I'd be 63 years old before I finally got my mitts on one!

That's not too much if it works for you. I think the pellet pistol is a great instructional tool for the fundamental stuff like breath, grip, and trigger control. Follow thru matters with these guns too, low velocity and everything.

If the seals are good, I'd say ninety bucks is a good deal. That gun has a nice patina on it.

Thanks, guys.......

After checking around a bit, I'm a little more comfortable with the price. I'd say about $70 bucks would be right about average for a Benjamin 130 in this condition.......close enough to feel like I didn't do too bad.

About ten or twelve years ago, I bought this Crossman 140 that shoots perfectly. That one I believe I paid $35 for.......and I consider that deal to be well above average for it.

The two together will make fine vintage shooters. My sons and I have spent some quality time shooting in the back yard with the Crossman 140........I'm sure we'll continue that tradition with the "new" Benjamin 130.......might even get some darts and a dartboard.......
