Here on offer is a high quality Smith & Wesson 78G CO2 powered single action all metal air pistol in. 22 caliber, serial number Q019756, a rare early adjustable trigger example with its original factory box, owner's manual, genuine S&W pellet tin with a partial load of pellets, and a 5 pack of genuine blue S&W CO2 cartridges.
It holds gas for extended periods without leaking down, over 2 weeks and counting, after I replaced all of the "O" rings with high quality polyurethane ones and installed my new HOT valve stem poppet that yields an incremental increase in power in place of the clunky original one. The gun should be good for years of trouble free shooting.I fired a 5 shot string through the gun across my chronometer with these results: average 410fps, high was 412fps, low was 407fps, a good result for a. 22 pistol using 14.3 grain pellets.
T hese are highly sought after S&W air pistols with total metal frame and sights, the only non-metal parts are the medium brown grips. These are very close replicas of the popular Smith & Wesson 41 automatic target pistol since they were designed by S&W to give the owners of those firearms an alternative to practicing with live ammunition, saving a lot of cost.
It has great balance and is a functional classic gun, great for target shooting and plinking. I fired the gun with a new gas cartridge and it shoots strongly using premium. Check the pictures for t he cosmetic condition, they best describe the gun.
