I've got a S&W Model 79G air pistol in my safe. My buddy is wanting to trade me out of it but neither of us have any idea of what the value of the pistol is. I still have the box and instruction sheet to go with the pistol. Does anyone have general ball park idea of what the value range would be on this pistol?

Thanks for the info Tusker. I had the problem with seals about 10 years back and had the seals replaced. I would have to dig to find my records but the guy that did the work specialized in air guns and turned it around in about 10 days.

If you are talking about the guy in Texas, I believe he has passed. The ones I got were an IMPROVED VERSION, made of a different material and NOT supposed to go bad. FYI, I was told these air guns should be stored with some Co2 IN the cylinder. :) I will look for the guys address, but I found doing a search. :)

Just bought a 79g .177 air pistol at a yard sale a few weeks ago. The gun is in great condition. I serviced it replacing all the seals and also replaced the valve with a high performance valve from JG airguns. It's shooting great and holding air just fine. The strange thing is that there is no serial number on this gun. Now I live about 5 miles from the S&W plant and my thoughts are this could be an employees gun that was never stamped with a serial number. Anybody have any other idea of why there wouldn't be a serial number on it, or if this makes this gun any later than normal?

welcome01 to the forums from the Wiregrass! I'm sure it's on the BATF site but I can't find it. I don't think airguns are considered firearms since they do not discharge a shot by an explosive. So, they are not required to have a serial number.
