Crosman Model 99 Rifle Disassembly, Part 1

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…

10281002

It’s visually well designed.

10281003

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.

10281005

Those screws are rusty.

10281006

Big screwdriver to remove the stock.

10281007

Stock bolt.

10281008

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.

Rear sight.

10281011

Removing the setscrew.

10281012

This does not remove the barrel though…

The action freed of most parts.

More to come…

wow, that's a very handsome gun, even if it is a little dirty. looks like it would have been a kick to shoot when they made it.
