Interesting to note that the Ted William 150 (Sears) just doesn't show up very often.  This one looks to be in nice condition.  The TW is, from my experience, easily the best shooting version. It has all the bells and whistles that Crosman could come up with. The quality for all the Sears guns is almost invariably the best produced by the Crosman factory.

Note the hole seen on the cocking knob, this hole allows access to the variable power screw.

that might get top dollar, being able to use a credit card might be the reason the prices on Ebay have been so high
but with over 8 days to go this one could be an eye opener but if you had to have a model 150 this one would be on the top of your list as stated

I know it may be rare with Ted Williams input but the ventilated rib on the barrel taken from the Colt Python is just a bit absurd? It even looks out of place rising from the end of the breech.  Screwed on to vent what?

"... to vent what?"  What? What do the Python's vents vent? Nothing.

The only real function of ventilated ribs on any pistol is cosmetics.

Ted Williams thought they made his signature model look good, I agree.  The exact same way they make the Colt Python look good.

It's a sticker that easily comes off. Pretty unusual for these to still be present. I found one but that was a gun which was all but new in the box.

One major problem, if you live in Virginia,  Ebay restricts our bids on airguns...I would like to get this corrected..Bob

Luckily I live in a state with no restrictions on Airguns.  These auction sites have really helped me get some pretty rare airguns in the last three years since I started collecting.  Have a bad feeling more restrictions will creep in as those who know little about our hobby look at these guns as firearms and dislike anything associated with a gun.
