I found a gentleman that has his Grandfathers 132 and 137 in to following condidions;

132 w/ white (pearl) grips
blueing very worn but no brass showing through
Tootsie roll looks to be in 90+ condition.
broken, inoperable trigger
pumps and builds pressure...can not fire
no decernable leaks

137 w/ white (pearl ) grips
blueing very worn, no brass showing
tootsie roll in 90+ condition
Pumps, holds air, but does not build up pressure after the 2nd pump
No decernable leaks
Dry fires successfully, but no deceranable extra pressure with more than 2 pumps.

Any idea what would be a fair price for both of us, for each pistol ?
Are Part available? Where ?


I have succesfully rebuilt 3 1377's and done the valve tip shave and piston stiffening
adding 2 + pump power improvement over stock, so I may be able to do the repairs if parts
are available.

These are very tempting, as I seem to have a strong preference for pumpers,
2 70's Blue Streaks, 1 1980 Crosman 766, 3 1377's, 1 Daisy 717

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

In non-shooting condition, I would offer no more than $30 for each pistol. You are going to have to reseal both of them.

I have re-sealed one of each in the last year and both are pretty easy.
nice shooters when done. Rick at Precision Pellet is my go to for parts.
If you have done 1377's you should have no problem
