My Red Ryder is newer, but one of the last ones made in the States. When I bought it, it was the only one on the shelf that didn't have Made in China on the box! Had to buy it!
Last summer I installed a large loop lever.
My old air rifles are mostly Crosmans.
Okay, I am done. Whew.
Gears work, brakes work (they need a bit of adjustment), lights work, bike rides nice. New bars are comfy. Darker colors make a big difference in "attitude." Looking forward to a bunch of good riding...
