Dag Evert's "American Classic"

As mentioned on the forum, heres a picture I took some time back, with natural winter daylight.
A 2100, and a 1377, both guns have been recrowned, and had their trigger parts shimmed for play,
contact surfaces stoned, and trigger springs somewhat reduced within safe limits.
The 2100 has had its barrel shimmed with tape to remove play.
Both guns give great accuracy for the money if they are given good pellets!
The combination of pellets and guns in the picture represents something close to my boyhood dreams:-)

Old Streak Restore - what would you do?

I have a late 50s Streak to restore and I'd like opinions. The good: Wood should refinish nicely, it's an older post Supergrade version with tapered pump handle, straight bolt, crew cut receiver. The bad: someone, for reasons I can only imagine, cut about an inch from the barrel/front sight. In the process, or something, there is barrel separation that I will need to fix. It only goes back 10 inches or so, so at least I'm not going to be soldering near the valve. My question is, how would you approach this?

I will be able to get the wood to look great. It only suffers from a loss of finish and old tape residue where some previous owner taped down the thumb safety. Talk about a nice mod! I was thinking about all I can to with the barrel is solder it up good and rework the cut off portion a bit and put a good crown on it. Obviously it won't be as desirable as a stock gun, but I think with new seals, it will shoot pretty good. I'll fix the rear sight too - the backwards look isn't becoming or very functionaly. I'll post this on the Vintage site too for more opinions. Thanks!
