I recently had a Sheridan Model C converted over to a Steroid version at Mac 1 Airguns. I had a chance to try it outside to see what it would do today. I figured I would try it at 12 pumps using Crosman Premier Pellets at 25yds. I have a older Tasco Propoint mounted forward on the barrel to make it easier to pump up. I and another fellow tried it each with 3 shot groups. One group all 3 shots were touching the other had 2 in one hole with the 3rd shot about 1/8" away.I don't know what the velocity is but judging from what the literature states it should be over 800 fps. This in my opinion would make an excellent airgun to use for small game hunting out to 30-35yds perhaps farther. The thing I like is that there was no change in point of impact even though 2 different shooters fired it. Much easier to control in terms of hitting where you aim than using my Beeman R9. Its's a little work to pump up to that level but not terrible. If a person doesn't need that much power you could always lower tha number of pumps and re-sight it in again. It definitely has more penetration power at the same given distance than my Beeman R9 or a Standard Sheridan at 8 pumps. Very pleased with it so far. I feel the one I have is perhaps more accurate than most judging from past experience with other Sheridan Model C's.
