I was offered a deal on a pile of Rochester Air Rifles, so here I go with some more airgun insanity…
Rochester #1. Based on the Crosman 101 but somewhat different…
Somewhat ugly, to my eye.
“ROCHESTER PRECISION AIR RIFLE ROCHESTER NEW YORK”
Hammer setup just like the 101.
The bolt is nice.
Three more Rochesters…
Pile of parts. Before you ask, no I’m not parting any of these out. The plan is to get all four rifles functioning, and possibly a fifth…
All the stocks have splits…
Interesting fiber(?) washer between the head of the stock screw and the stock.
Removing the trigger guard assembly.
Barrel band has two screws on each side.
The band slides back exposing the pivot pin.
Pushing out the pivot pin.
End plug and pin.
Barrel band just hanging around.
Pump arm and pump plunger removed.
Link pin is riveted and I’m not going to remove it. Notice the lack of a tension spring – none of the rifles had one.
Pushing out the link pin.
Adjustable length pump plunger.
Plunger assembly. I need to make a small spanner (or use snap ring pliers) to get it apart.
Much more to come…
