Blue Streak help

How can one tell whether or not a Blue Streak is the older model with the trigger group that works better for Palmer conversions, just by looking at the gun? I located one, and will probally be picking it up this weekend. However, I am not sure if its the old style one that is ideal for conversions, or if its a newer one.

So, how can I tell?

*BTW, getting it for like $65 *

Look at the back of the valve tube, if it slopes like an older KP, that’s a good sign; if the safety on the back is a rocker (tabs on each side and an S on one side and F on the other) then you hit the jack pot! If it is a sloping back and has a little button on the slope that's bad for a hurricane but good if you like making lots of $$ re-selling to a streak collector as that is an old one (early 50's). If the back of the valve tube looks like a plug (no slope) and has a tab on the bottom that pulls out for the safety then you are golden for a hurricane. If it is a plug but the safety is down by the trigger then you can probably pass unless you want to keep it as a pellet gun; that’s too much to pay for wood.

Generally if the trigger guard is not part of the trigger group then you can make a hurricane out of it.

*shameless plug*

If your deal falls through, I've got an older style with rocking safety for sale.

Not exactly golden, there are some caveats to the latest design, 3 of us have them and a few things can be tricky.
