I picked up this 140 yesterday. It needs a rebuild / refinish (which it will get). I've looked at lots of pics of 140's on the web and have not seen another one where the end of the pump arm flairs out.

I was looking at that gun for a couple weeks..and I had the same thought, I haven't seen another example with the flared arm, either..not that Ive been into them very long.
I love my 140, just bought it from Brian in Penn recently. They are great guns, quiet, powerful, pretty to look at, and the perfect size and weight, in my opinion. vintage Americana all the way.

I have the 140 factory service manual if you need one Id be happy to email it to you

Have fun with your new project

crosman always seemed to do something a little different for the stores like sears/montgomery ward/western auto on the guns they manufactured for them. look the rifle over very carefully and see if you find anything on it other than crosman. my 1400 and 180 were made by crosman for sears and they have the white plastic piece between the barrel and tube and the receivers on both guns is factory grooved for a scope. i know the crosman 350/3500 bb gun had a sloped rearward stock at the muzzle end while the one they made for sears the stock was longer at the bottom and sloped rearward at the top.

Then who ever modded it did a great job. The roll pin holes have not been drilled through, so the pump arm has not been removed from the linkage. Also, the grain pattern of the pump arm matches the stock. Overall the gun is in fairly rough condition. It has a fair amount of surface rust / patina and the stock has lots of small dents and dings. The pump linkage has a lot of wear. It's gonna be a fun project!
