1919 Benjamin Rifle Advert
The original home of the Benjamin Air Rifle and Mfg Co. was 611 N. Broadway which was the Leader Building. Torn down in 1942, there just aren't many pictures to be found. However, I finally found a postcard. And right there on the top of the building is "A. Wissler - Survey...." This is where all of the model C, E, F, G, 200, 600, 700, etc were made.  Dean T Fletcher.

 With a 1926 Benjamin Model F air rifle came,instructions,targets and a wonderful wee booklet called,"The Shooter's Art"!

The Benjamin marked holster is a rare find nowadays!

 Over the years,Benjamin supplied plenty of info' on airgun use and maintainance.In fact their instruction booklets were so thorough it was your own darned fault if you, "shot your eye out!"
