STIGA break barrel 1950-
Stock No 4471
This is a prize collector’s item. This scarce air rifle is in near new condition in its original box. It is complete with a BSA number 9 scope in its original box, the scopoe itself is in near new condition but sadly one turret adjustment cover is missing. Also with a plastic tube with some BSA Pylarm pellets in it and a copy of the instruction manual. No target holder or oil bottle. The polystyrene inner tray has been slightly modified to allow the rifle to fit in with the scope fitted on. That said, there is no sign what so ever on the gun that the scope has ever been fitted although it may have been done carefully. Original open sight with its little peep hole is fitted at the back of the rifle. Cocks and shoots nice and smoothly with a little resistance on opening at around 6.5 foot pounds which which is what they would have been when new. A nice rifle for your collection. These are quite pleasant to shoot having used one. Unfortunately some one has put brown tape over the end of the rifle which goes over the label where it would have said BSA Buccaneer. This label is just about visible through the brown tape but the serial number which would have been written wunderneath is not visible. Box itself, apart from tape at both ends, is in fair condition having done its job of protecting rifle for many years.

AIRSPORTER MARK 5
A good deal of time has been spent on this rifle it has been refinished metal and stock. Stock has been done very nicely. Has also been fitted with a new piston head and seals and mainspring. The trigger block and trigger guard unit has been polished up to nice shiny alloy. Overall the rifle looks quite nice. Fitted with a BSA 4x20 scope with mediocre optics. No rearsight fitted has a front sight that is very slightly broken but that is due to the plastic used not any carelessness by a previous owner. Shoots at about 9 foot pounds with reasonable consistency.
STOCK No: 4137
Like new condition apart from one mark to the front sight where it looks like a sight hood has been carelessly installed at some stage. Shoots at 6.8 foot pounds using BSA Elite pellets which we think is the manufacturers specification. This is a scarce item and this one is in excellent original condition. Complete with its correct foresight hood.
This highly interesting item was made in Japan for an American company to commemorate the bicentenary of the American independence in 1776. We do not believe they sold that well. A large batch of them made their way to the UK where they were sold for several years by Whaleys Of North London. This example is in very good condition having recently been cleaned and dusted off. It cocks and shoots fine even the hammer mechanism now works which they do not always, sometimes they are lethargic or just dont move when you fire. It is an underlever with a pull out tube mechanism similar to a Daisy. The metalwork (some of which is actually plastic) is in good order, this is a nice collector’s item, displays well on a wall. We should also point out that the dummy flint lock mechanism does work as a safety and it locks the trigger until it is pulled back for cocking. A nice item.
Stock No CSBD220
This nicely made Japanese pump up rifle is in good condition retaining lots of its original bluing just with very light wear to the finish in places. stock has a few minor surface scratches and marks. It shoots well. the person we are selling it for states that it has been restricted to five pumps, any over pumping could lead to locking up of the valve and the rifle not working at all at all. five pumps give just over 11 foot pounds using H and N field target trophy pellets. fitted with a Parker Hale silencer, we can not see how it is attached it des not seem to be screw on, might have been locktited on or something. either way this is a nice quality item in good working order. also has some spiral grooves or scratches in the barrel where some other sort of silencer appears to have been fitted in the past. came in to us fitted with a scope that we have removed because frankly, my dear, it was rubbish. Maybe we will stick it on a Webley Hawk!!!
Stock No 4498
This classic, in fact now legendary air rifle, is in very good condition retaining most of its original bluing but with slight discolouration near the breech. It has recently been fitted with a new piston seal and shoots at 11.4 foot pounds with BSA Elite pellets. Fitted with its original front sight which allows interchangeable elements to be fitted the rear sight is missing slider. So its not readily adjustable for elevation. Safety catch works as it should, cocks and shoots really nicely, smooth to shoot stock is good with a few minor surface marks and one more noticeable mark on the cheek piece. This is also marked series mark 2 on the breech block. Underneath the normal FWB markings. Overall a nice shooters example not mint but not bad.
Stock No: 3752
This rifle is in fairly good condition, the metalwork being mostly shiny but perhaps a little bit brown when viewed in good light especially on the cocking lever where it has obviously been used. Stock is OK, without major marks, some surface marks. The Webley medallion has been rubbed over and is now just a plain white badge. All the components are complete, what makes this rifle so good is its performance. It is one of the best working Webley Mark 3 we have ever found. It does 11 foot pounds with RWS Hobby pellets and also BSA Elite. It works superbly. The spring is very very good and the seal is perfect . Mechanically the gun is as it should be apart from the tap lever screw which is an obvious replacement. A collector’s item but also very shootable.

Calibre: .177 rifled
This Cadet Major is a bit of a sleeper. When we obtained it it had a light coating of surface rust overall. However this has cleaned off quite well to leave a mostly black surface with speckling overall. The photo etching is fully visible, the stock is very good and with a nice clear BSA sharp mark. The barrel has suffered a bit more, it is a bit grainy and slightly brown. Original open sights are fitted, nice and easy to cock though in all honesty the springs a bit worn out. It shoots consistently and would make a nice junior rifle so we have decided not to change it. Almost a nice collector’s item in this condition but as it is it is just a good original example. Obviously the surface rust is we suspect occurred in the last few years before that it would have been a really nice example.
Stock No 4465
This is a nice quality air rifle produced by Diana in Germany for Webley. For a short period of time. This example is in excellent condition the metalwork retaining nearly all its original finish apart from one very small area where the bluing has gone a bit rusty with wear on the cylinder. But it is not deep. The stock has a few surface marks and scratches but nothing colonel, sorry, major. Cocks and shoots at around 7 foot pounds, nice and easy to cock with an auto safety catch. This was designed for a younger shooter as it is lighter than Vebleys other rifles of zer time. Ziss must be a collector’s item as ve do not see too many of zemm. Fitted with Webleys plastic rear sight and the Diana tunnel front sight.

METEOR MARK 1
This early mark 1 Meteor is good condition having had a new mainspring fitted and leather piston seal, the only thing not original is the end cap which is now a plastic one rather than the metal one which would have been fitted when made and the rear sight as usual is incomplete and we replaced it with a Relum one which has been made to fit and does the job. Cocks and shoots fine at about 8 foot pounds nice and smooth.
Stock No 4655
This nice quality East German air rifle is of junior proportions, its not one which we have particularly had a lot of before. This example is in good condition retaining most of its original somewhat dull black finish. Surface marks and scuffs to the stock, has been used but because of its solid construction it is still in good working order. Fitted with its original open sights a scope could be attached.
Stock No 4666
This is a nice quality German made junior rifle. We have not had one of these in the shop before so it must be quite a scarce model. This example is in fair condition with some unfortunate rust pitting to the cylinder partially obscuring the Bovaria trademark on top of the cylinder. Also some rust speckling to the barrel. Would appear to be the originalopen sights fitted although it may be that the barrel has been slightly shortened as it just seems a bit short. It is wellfinished and you might not even notice if you did not read this! Its only comparing it with catalogue specifications that we think its a bit shorter. Stock is ok with some marks and scuffs and scratches and a couple of dents. Fitted with a scope ramp, little scope could be fitted, cocks and shoots fine with a nice smooth recoil, could be considered a collector’s item but ideally it would be in better condition. Measures 85cm with the barrel being 29cm long.

AIRSPORTER Mark 2 (GD Series)
This classic and stylish under lever rifle is in fairly good condition and good working order. The photo etching on the top is not visible, the gun may have been refinished at some stage. The stock is good with some surface marks and scratches but an unfortunate break around the bottom of the pistol grip where the stock bolt goes through. Complete with its original open sights. The gun cocks and shoots at around 10.7 foot pounds with BSA Elite pellets. It does so in a not unpleasant manor.
Mark 3 converted
Now here is something you do not see every day, thankfully! A Webley mark 3 converted to have the functionality of an HW77. The work has been competently if not brilliantly done and the result is a rifle that seems to be very under powered at only about 1.5 to 2 foot pounds but is very smooth to shoot. Fair condition, fitted with what looks to be a professionally made one piece front sight unit, we do not recognise what this might of came off of but looks quite a neat and good quality item. Also with (probably a Milbro) peep sight on the back. Some stippling to the stock obviously set up as a little target rifle but it is .22 and we got severe reservations about the cocking mechanism as the is no anti bear trap mechanism. This is therefore sold only as a collector’s item and not really for use (unless with extreme caution) remembering to keep hold of the lever at all times when cocking and loading the gun. An engineering that someone took on, we wonder whether they were happy with the results or not.

This semi automatic bb shooting co2 air rifle is quite a scarce item in this country (England) they were made in America in the 1970s but not for long. All markings are clear, present and correct, the rifle is in good condition, working, holding gas. Fitted with a 3-

Year: c1960 (GD SERIES)
AIRSPORTER MARK 2
This most classic good looking air rifle is in fairly good condition, the meal work being an even brown finish. Cocks and shoots at about 9 foot pounds using Accupel pellets, probably a non original front sight hood added, little flip up sight which we believe to be later but looks exactly right for the gun. Stock is good with no cracks or breaks and actually a nice piece of walnut. Automatic opening tap. This is the version with 4 separate scope grooves which means that mounting a scope can be a bit problematical. A collector’s item which shoots well. A sling swivel was fitted to the stock and has been removed and the hole plugged up (see photopictureimage)

Calibre: .177 smoothbore (bb)
This is a really nicely made pump up air rifle, 100 shot tubular magazine above the barrel. Once you work out how to load bb (quite straight forward once you know how) this air gun will shoot with just one pump and the bb comes out quite nicely more pumps will increase velocity. This example is in good condition retaining most of its original black finish with slight light wear on some of the leading edges and minimal tarnishing in hidden areas. Stock is good with light surface loss to the finish couple of minor marks. Not had a lot of use as the pump handle, for example, is crisp and sharp. An interesting item we had not had one of these before we had the normal .22 single shot pump ups but not the repeating one. Muyst be a nice collectopr’s item but actually good fun to shoot as well.
Stock No 4709
This superb quality air rifle is in excellent condition retaining virtually all its original finish which in this case is a deep glossy black, stock is superb with just a few light surface marks. Original components fitted throughout, cocks and shoots nicely although a bit of dieseling every now and then as it has not obviously been used very much especially in the recent past. But there is a but. The telescopic sight rail is not the original we believe it is a later version which has been attached by welding. The welding has been done very neatly and pretty unobtrusively but it does detract from what is otherwise a near new condition gun. This gun came in to us fitted with a very large modern scope so we suspect the work on it has been done quite recently and is a shame. Does however turn it in to a useable item as a modern scope can be fitted on without danger of the telescopic sight rail parting company with the rifle which was the case with the original. A pitty about the rail otherwise this would be a really nice collectable item. As it is it does look good still.
Stock No 4725
AIRSPORTER MARK 3/4
This is quite a scarce variant of the BSA Airsporter, being produced for less than 2 years. It still has the conical leather piston head of the mark 2 but it is combined with a later looking, frankly quite ugly, stock. This was the start of the decline. The mechanics are still good but the cosmetics started to suffer. Also fitted with completely plastic rearsights which are usually broken but by some good chance on this example have survived complete and working. That is rare in itself. Cocks and shoots at about 8.5 foot pounds, reasonably easy we have not changed the spring we have left it as it is. Condition is OK, metalwork is abit grainy and slightly blotchy some usual surface marks and scuffs to the enameled triger block and triggger guard, stock has a few surface marks and scratches, overall a pretty average example but is complete and all correct as it should be with regards to parts and sights and ting.

THIS we suppose now quite classic air rifle is a bit rough and ready it does cock and shoot OK, perhaps a bit low on power, the metalwork is in good condition, stock is not so good. Open front sight fitted, the rear sight has been modified its been broken and then altered to make it we suppose usable again. The stock has some gauging on the cocking link where a sling swivel was fitted interfered with the wood as it was cocked. We moved the sling swivel. There is also signs of a very feint hairline crack on the pistol grip doesn’t seem to be open doesn’t seem to be loose but is present. A sling swivel stud has een fitted on the back of the stock, too close to the butt pad we think, but no matter. Perhaps this is a project to work on or as a rough pest control rifle. Not to collector’s standard.

Calibre: 4.5mm X2
MODEL 21 DOUBLE BARREL
This rare and interesting classic collectable is ijn near new condition, apart from a couple of minor scratches having hads very little use. Ingenious design with 2 power systems next to each other which cock on a single break of the action. Shot tubes in both barrels, these are a nice collector’s item, not produced for very long (about 4 years) by the Daisy company in America.
Stock No 4708
METEOR SUPER mark 3
This early BSA Meteor Super is in good condition but unfortunately without a rear sight. Metal retains most of its black enamel finish with a few light surface scratches. Stock is very good with just a few minor marks. Fitted with a compact 4 x 28 scope. Rifle has been fitted with a new spring and shoots at around 9 foot pounds.
Stock No 4485
This interesting rifle which is now a collector’s item has been usefully upgraded with the built in reflex site which usually does not work very well having been removed in favour of a modern red and green Milbro branded electric dot sight. A sighting mechanism whilst existing in 1980 were very expensive the price as fallen recently. The condition is good the power is a little lower than what it should be but makes it easy to cock and pleasant to shoot. Fitted with a sling giving it a tactical military look. These were only produced for a couple of years just before the demise of Milbro and were based on the Milbro Cougar pistol. Unusually the plastic on this is not all broken and cracked, seems to be complete. A nice little shooting rifle.
Stock No: 3998
This is a superbly well made air rifle. It is beautifully constructed. This example is as new in its original box with original charger and paperwork. However the design is fundamentally flawed. It makes a loud noise when you cock it and does not put out that much power, however we have tested them in the past and found them to be accurate and a lot of fun to use. If you took it to a field target shoot you could annoy them with the cocking noise! These were initially very expensive to buy and the price tag reflected the quality. The design unfortunately meant it was doomed to failure. This is a collectable item, we have charged it fully and it works fine. These are getting scarce. This is the original battery fitted and it does work but we do not know how many times it will cock the gun on a charge as it is a bit old. Replacement batteries should be available. This gun would be ideal for a disabled shooter where cocking a gun would be physically prohibitive.
