A friend gave me a  Streak he was gong to toss ; she holds air for ever but will only pump up twice before the "lever "kicks back and will not load any more air. 

Any ideas about a fix ?

there are repair kits available.... and some repair centers.

 

If you can't do it yourself, it may not be worth it

I brought a Crosman pump to a gun shop in Coram twenty years back.  An allegedly authorized Crosman repair shop.   Suffice it to say I would never bring anything for repair there again.   If you do find a shop authorized to make repairs on a Sheridan, get some reviews first from other Sheridan owners.   As Tom Mac said, it may not be worth it.

If you're looking for a project to do yourself and have $30 to invest, have at it.

It's not worth having any shop repair it. You can buy a used one working for around $100.

 

You said it holds air with two pumps max. Have you fired it? .

What ever you do, don't dry fire it. That's the quickest way to damage it.

Me, I would take it all apart, check the components for wear, see if anything is bent, then make a decision.

fenucho the blue streak is a pneumatic air rifle dry firing will not hurt it, a valve releasing the air is the only moving part  . Dry firing a piston or spring will do damage due to having nothing to stop the slap of said on the empty chamber .
