Air rifles used

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.

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-

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.

VULCAN (CUSTOMISED HYBRID!)
According to the top of the cylinder this is a Webley Vulcan. Its not a Vulcan we have ever seen before. Firstly it has a flat ended cylinder end cap which was fitted to the Victor, the front sight is a diopter peep sight and appears to be a Weihrauch and the rear sight is a Milbro style diopter sight. The rifle produces about 9 foot pounds it has a late trigger similar to a Webley Vulcan series 3 which has a grooved front with a curved profile. The stock is also unusual, it is not a Victor one it has got an ambidextrous cheek piece and a flat black plastic butt plate. Overall a bit of an enigma, could be made up from several parts, looks like its been done well and would make a nice junior target rifle. In good condition the metal work going a little bit brown but mostly ok all components seem to be in good order. Has provision for a rear sight on the breech block but none is fitted. Seems to have been assembled for paper target or bell target shooting.

MARK 3 SUPERTARGET
This is the target version of the Webley mark 3 made for bell target and match target shooting. This example is ok the metal on the cylinder is mostly all there and original close examination reveals the barrel has been refinished as under a good light you can see speckling underneath the bluing. We suspect this rifle has been quite comprehensively used for target shooting but it is in good order shoots very well exellent airtight piston head and tap. Stock has some surface marks and scratches is a nice piece of quality walnut. Some general wear overall you can see where it has been used and some light speckling and old rust spots to the underlever and barrel. Fitted with a Parker Hale PH17B peep sight with choice of hole size an allso a cap on the pistol grip with 6 different elements for the front sight. Speaking of which we could not manage to undo the front sight it just neads a bit of loosening off to free but we could not manage it there is a front sight element fitted, a post in this case. A quality air rifle and the Supertargets are always very sellable.
Stock No 4805
This high quality German made target air rifle from the pre recoilless action era is in quite good condition retaining some original finish a little bit grainy on the cylinder wich makes us suspect the barrel shroud has been refin ished cos it looks very good. Stock is very good with no cracks or major faults just a few minor surface blemishes. Fitted with a Walther diptor sight no rubber eye cup on it. Cocks and shoots very smoothly and consistently at 597 foot per second with with Hobby pellets. These have superb automatic overrideable anti bear trap system whereby if you cock it and leave the barrel swinging which you should not do because its very bad practice, and were to pull the trigger the barrel would not fly up however if you want to de-
Note: There is evidence that the cocking link pin has come loose at some time and has been repaired so you will have to keep an eye on it , we think it is OK.

Calibre: 4.4mm rifled
This is the Sporter version of the VZ47 which was also made as a military training rifle. This example is in near new condition retaining virtually all its original blued/black finish, the stock has a thick orangey coloured varnish which might be the factory original as this example, unlike others we have seen, does not have a metal butt plate fitted but the wood is grooved to provide a non slip surface, Similar varnish fished have been seen on Haenel rifles of the 1950s/60s. Original open sights, ear sight graduated for 10/15, 20 and 25 metres. Cocks and shoots perfectly obviously having had very little use.

MODEL 121 CG
This must be a very rare item in this country we understand it was produced as a gallery gun in America and sold in America just after the second world war. It uses a bulk fill CO2 cylinder that powers the gun you then just have to cock and load a suitable pellet. This example is in good condition seems to be black painted finish we believe may be original as the logo on the side is nice and sharp and if it had been repainted it would be covered over a bit. This also has an adapter that we had made which allows filling from a certain fitting that goes on to the bottom of the tank and allows filling from a fire extinguisher. Lovely adjustable peep sight on it which is a nice fully adjustable and nicely designed item. Wood work is quite good some scuffs and scratches. Not had as much use as you would expect if was used on a gallery, a rare item for an advanced Crosman collector.

These are a great fun gun. They are surprisingly accurate, bolt action mechanism just cock and close the bolt to shoot it, this one is fitted with the much more scarce 12 shot magazine. It shoots nice and smoothly and is a very nice gun to shoot. This example is only in fair condition the metal work having had an application of black paint overall unfortunately. Dunno what its like underneath but may need refinishing if you want to remove the paint. However the rifle is complete and working well with Mauser type safety catch at the back and a nice smooth bolt mechanism.

Calibre: .177 smoothbore
This interesting air rifle is in fair condition it has no finish left on it may have been originally nickel plated or blued not quite sure. Fully octagonal barrel nice flip up rear sight with two leaf types the only markings on the rifle are Ansons bolt action on the barrel locking lever. Nicely shaped trigger block. These are almost identical to the MGR 1901 patent air rifle its not known wether Ansons bought in parts or copied the mgr or modified bought in rifles. Stock has been refinished, has a few surface marks one little dent probably the original butt plate fitted. Clean condition, mainspring has a lot of congealed grease visible through the slot. Basically complete and seems original.

Calibre: .177 .
Neat little side lever air rifle would suit a junior shooter. Neat bolt action loading, open sights removed in favour of BSA 4 x 32 scope.
Stock No 4933
This now classic German air rifle is in excellent condition, a couple of very minor marks to the base of the stock but the metalwork is pretty much pristine. Original open sights fitted, cocks and shoots fine at about 8 foot pounds which is about with these did, only let down when people wanted full power rifles. Screw heads are good obviously had very little use a good collectors piece as well.
Elevation and windage adjustments, but no caps. (They often get lost down the years)
The rear sight was broken and then repaired but does not adjust.
This junior rifle is in good condition retaining most of its original black enamel type finish. Fitted with a BSA 4x20 scope of the correct period, unfortunately missing its turret adjustment covers. The plastic rearsight has broken and been repaired, these are a very fragile item and are usually seen not fully functional/broken. Cocks and shoots fine at around 7.5 foot pounds, we believe a new breech seal has been fitted at some stage as the original would by now have perished. The stock is good just with a few minor surface scratches.
Stock No 4806
LGR target rifle
This classic single stroke pneumatic target rifle has recently been fitted with some new seals we understand and shoots nice and consistently at just over 5 foot pounds. The metalwork is in excellent condition and fitted with original Walther diopter sights. The stock is good but there is evidence of a repair to the pistol grip seems to have been very well done and in fact is virtually invisible on one side but with a line of glue apparent through the stippling on the right hand side. The job looks superb. A nice quality entry level target rifle these are always accurate and totally recoilless.
Stock No 4948
This now classic Webley sidelever air rifle is in good condition, the metalwork retaining nearly all its original deep blue finish. The stock has been refinished as it looks nicer that the standard factory example with some nice grain showing through. Open sights fitted, no front sight hood, cocks and shoots at c10.8 foot pounds with RWS Hobby pellets, does not sound noisy when you shoot like some of these can. The anti bear trap mechanism and safety catch work as they should do. A collector’s item but also nice for shooting for hunting or general field use.
Stock No 4955
AIRSPORTER mark 6 GL
This classic BSA air rifle is in quite good condition, we believe its been subject to an amount of refinishing, the bluing on the barrel is a bit thin and the cylinder is not perfect but a bit better. Fitted with its original open sights amazingly these are the plastic ones and they aint broken and they function fine. The stock has been rubbed down and refiinished there is a very small crack at the back of the pistol grip but it does not go anywhere it does not go through anywhere and its smooth and hairline. The gun shoots nicely about 10 foot pounds little bit dieseling as its not been used for a while, seems consistent enough. These are now a collector’s item although this is perfectly shootable as it is.

METEOR Mark 1
This is a remarkable air rifle. After having replaced the mainspring and cleaned, tidied and lubricated the rifle we were amazed to find in did over 11 foot pounds with Air Arms pellets and the same with Accupells and Hobbies. Not particularly loud to shoot but easy to cock. It is absolutely the case that this first model fitted with a leather piston seal is far more efficient than later models fitted with O rings. This example is one of the best shooting ones we have had. Condition is fairly good, the metalwork is a little brown overall and slightly grainy, the rear sight, as per normal, was not complete so has been replaced with a Relum leaf sight, but also fitted is an Original model 7 4x20 Japanese made telescopic sight whos mounts fit the grooves perfectly. The image is a little milky/cloudy but is perfectly usable. A nice little junior rifle which is full power.

M417 pump up
We believe this air gun is now discontinued, fires bbs or pellets, in good condition in box. It has handle with battle sight.
Stock No 4930
This good quality German made rifle is in excellent near new condition having been very well looked after by the previous owner. It it full power but light weight (for a Weihrauch) break barrel for hunting or target shooting. The cocking lever has been slightly modified to prevent any possible future galling issues.

STINGRAY CARBINE DELUXE
This must now be considered a nice collector’s item. It was produced during the last days of production by Webley in Birmingham and the Stingray Deluxe is not a common model. This example is in very near new condition with its original owners manual. Tnere is a couple of small scratches on the barrel weight where it has rested against things over the years. The rifle has had very little use. It shoots at about 10 foot pounds with Air Arms pellets which is perhaps a little low. The finish on the rifle is superb, the bluing is excellent and the mechanics are very good. Fitted with a Webley brand 4 x 32 scope and also Webley branded mounts which did not exist for that long. A nice walnut stock with checkering at the pistol grip and an ambidextrous cheek piece. A nice quality rifle which will become even more collectable in years to come.
Stock No 4835
This classic air rifle is in fairly good condition,finish is original with light browning/wear to the cylinder and some small patina or rust spots to the barrel. Stock has no cracks or defects but has some surface marks and scratches overall. The rifle functions really well, original open sights are fitted, an honest rifle, nothing special but nothing majorly wrong with it either. An average one really its obviously had a fair bit of use in the past but not been mistreated.
Stock No 4960
This is an interesting rifle built on a relatively short lived Chinese pump up rifle which has a fixed fitted 12 shot magazine, you pump the rifle, pull bolt back, turn magazine to the next ppoint bolt forward and it loads a pellet in to the breach. You can pump it up to 6 times but recall when we used to sell these that customers would treat them like a bull worker and over pump them and damage them. This one works fine, fitted with a nice custom stock, shaped with a cheek piece and adjustable butt pad, custom pump handle and also a custom made silencer at the front. Fitted with a red dot style reflex sight which gives faces as reticles, bit strange! Nice kit for plinking although not really for hunting. Interesting item.

VULCAN mark 3
This series 3 Webley Vulcan distinguished by its much better shaped trigger, good quality trigger guard and nicer finish to the stock over the previous versions is in excellent near new condition. It is a much less often seen .177 calibre fitted with its original open sights, does not appear to have ever been fitted with a scope there are a couple of very small marks to the lacquer finish to the underside of the stock but the rifle has obviously had very little use. Shoots at just over 10 foot pounds with a Webley Powerpell pellet. Nice collector’s item equally good shooting the overall finish on these rifles is very nice. Manual safety catch, screw heads are perfect a nice example. Also it is with an owner’s manual.
