Yup them older types, (slavia and T's) the breakdown ones, you have to break the action and iti cocks and pumps at the same time, then you drop a single pellet into the barrels chamber, then close it and it's ready to go! Slow yes, but theyare accurate. Now if it starts to lose strength, you can remove the leather rings, on both the barrel seal and the compression piston and replace them with another piece of leather, or soak them in 3-in-1 oil. Lasts forever. Mine died as a result of shooting it so many times (thousands of pellets) that the "catch" on the cocking action, completly wore out and was just in pieces! Loved them types! I saw a Chinese made "replica" but was told it wasn't any good, so I'm still looking today for another single shot type. I tried co2 types and was sorely disappointed. I had the crosman pistol in .177 and I wore that out in 1 year! Wish I could find a vintage .22 caliber benjamn or crosman pistol, it was made mostly of brass! (ps) I used to shoot my pellet rifles with the pellets "reversed" like hollow points". Interesting impacts! Devastating.
