Crossman 130

I'm sitting at my desk with a 130 disassembled. I got it from my father-in-law about 10 yrs ago when he passed. It was among a number of other guns. I've never done anything with it and didn't even know what the manufacturer was. This, due to some light oxidation where the name was printed, plus a combination of my old eyes.

Doing some research this week, I identified it as a Crossman but wasn't sure if it was a 130 or a 177.

After cleaning, I can now see the light imprint. Crossman 130, Fairport, NY, USA .22 CAL.

It did pump up previous to disassembly but it was weak. At this point, my intent is to sell. I'll probably put new seals in it, which a new owner might appreciate. Given its manufacture in the early 50s, I thought it might have some collector value. However, even with oxidation cleaned, there is still some light pitting which would affect value.

I could send it to Airgun Smith and maybe he can do some magic and make it look new but unless it's worth a lot of money, I'll just clean up, rebuild and offer for sale.

I looked on the classified here and a number of other sites and can't find any 130s for sale so, I don't know what it's worth. Among the guns from my fatherinlaw, was a Ruger Model I. Semi auto .22. I've been offered upwards of $400 for it even though I don't want to sell it.

Any thoughts?

Oh yeah and I did break off the back sight screw. I see Airgunsmith has it for sale so my next email will be to him.
