The WTB ad I put up on the airgun forum kept paying dividends, as a kind man sold me a beat up Crosman model 99 air rifle for an excellent price. Although it’s actually branded as a Montgomery Wards Model 1415, as some of the classic Crosman airguns were sold my Montgomery Wards under their name, like the 140 I covered previously.
A brief break in the rain and I took a couple of pictures of the whole rifle. I had to hurry…
It’s visually well designed.
Here you can see the Mongomery Wards branding. Also the pellet shuttle…
Rather than just pry that round steel cap off, I removed the butt plate.
Those screws are rusty.
Big screwdriver to remove the stock.
One screw retains the forearm.
There’s a stud on the barrel threaded for the screw. One of the previous owners had stripped the barrel for rebluing.
Removing the setscrew.
This does not remove the barrel though…
The action freed of most parts.
More to come…
