My wife's grandpa passed away a week ago (RIP) and some of his WWII and police stuff was given to me. Among them this Crossman 38T pellet gun. I was told by my father in-law (grandpa's son) that when he started in the police (he later left and joined the army) they made them train with this type of guns first before the real ones. This one is metal (don't know what kind, I'm a complete ignorant when it comes to guns, though I like their design a lot) and very heavy. I haven't opened it yet to see the insides but it seems to work. I'll have to see if it shoots the pellets.
It has some wear and I think that gives it character. There was a receipt inside as well.
