Halfbreed,
I remember Benjamin air rifles, but i don't recall them being called Benjamin Franklin. If this is what you're dealing with, you can do a search on Yahoo/Google and you'll find some info.

Halfbreed,
from what I'm guessing, the "franklin" part may have been the town where produced. The Benjamin air rifles look like the Sheridans for a good reason. From what I can tell, when the Benjamins went away, the became the Sheridan. Do a search for just "benjamin air rifle" and you'll see what I mean. Those rifles had a unique look, unlike any other I'm aware of, that's why your comment about it looking like a Sheridan makes me think this is the case.

Click here and you'll see a reference chart for the Benjamin model 317 with a serial number range for the years of production.
