This left often seen deluxe version of the BSA Airsporter is in quite good condition the metalwork retaining most of its original blue finish. No open sights are fitted the tap lever appears to have been slightly modified by thinning down for some reason and there are a couple of very small holes which have been filled on the fore end next to where the open sights would have originally have been. The rest of the stock is in good order, a nicely grained piece of walnut with no serious marks or scratches just very light wear. Fitted with a 4x32 compact scope which gives the correct eye relief on this rifle which can prove problematic with scope fitting. The gun shoots at around 10.4 foot pounds with RWS Supadome pellets with a smooth recoil it shoots quite nice, a good working gun.
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.

HW90 GAS RAM
This solid nice quality rifle is a gas ram power plant sytem using the Theoben invented gas ram and is marked Theoben on one side of the breach block. Fitted with a Nikko Sterling silver crown 4x40 scope in a one piece mount. The rifle is in good condition the metal work retaining all its original bluing, the stock has some surface marks and scratches commensurate with a little use. These really do shoot nicely.
Stock No: 3856
This classic air rifle which has the longest production run of any individual airgun model and is still in production today is in very good condition retaining most of its original bluing. Fitted with its original open sights, single sided safety catch, shoots nice and smoothly at about 10 foot pounds. The stock has a few very minor surface marks and scratches and a couple of knocks above the trigger guard area on one side. A good hunting rifle always know these to be nice and accurate guns.
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.
Stock No 4185
This surprisingly good quality and very sturdily made air rifle is in excellent near new condition. The only sign of use is some very minor rubbing on the bottom of the cocking link. The rest of the rifle is unmarked and as new. Fitted with a slide adjustable rear sight, has scope grooves but there has never been a scope on it, prewar German rifle this is in fact made in Poland in the 1970s. This example is the best one we have ever seen.
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 4354
This is a good condition solid example of the last model of the Relum Tornado. Nice and easy to cock and quite smooth shooting. Fitted with adjustable open sights. This example is in very good condition with the metal work retaining nearly all its original blued finish. Couple of very small minor marks to the stock. Obviously not had a lotta use. Shoots nice n smooth. A classic.
What we have here is a really interesting air gun. It is basically a side lever bull pup which has a semi recoilless mechanism built in to it in which the mechanism moves on slides within the stock on cocking. It is clearly based on an Air Arms or Sussex Armoury side lever but with a bolt action mechanism placed above. This is well made, not brilliant, but made by a clearly competent person who knew what they were doing and came up with a radical and different design of air gun. Probably made several years ago judging by the patina we have had to clean off of the built on steel scope ramp. Fitted with a silencer it does however need a service as it only produces about 4 foot pounds, we have not taken it apart as we are not sure of the construction of it. An interesting item and probably pre dates the current fashion for bull pups. Fitted with an unbranded 3-
SIDE LEVER BULL PUP
AIRSPORTER (GD SERIES)
This superb example is in superb near new condition apart from one very small area of pitting on top of the cylinder. The stock is superb, a particularly nice piece of walnut with beautiful graining. Couple of small marks to the enamel finish back block. Complete but the foresight hood is a later replacement. Cocks and shoots at around 7.5 foot pounds using BSA Elite pellets with quite a violent recoil. It has obviously not had a lot of use and needs lubrication. This is a really nice example.
MODEL 160 (Custom conversion to .25 calibre)
Custom conversion fitted with a .25 barrel. The rifle is in very good condition retaining most of its original bluing. Fitted with a silencer on the front (most effective place to put a silencer!) Which screws on or off, original front sight fitted as well as a very neat good quality Crosman S331 peep sight at the back. This is the version with an auto safety catch which engages when the bolt is cocked. Shoots at about 9 foot pounds in .25 cal. Stock is good. An interesting conversion. The moderator is marked Manders which we think was an Australian make a few years ago which were very impressive for their small size and do not seem to be available any more un fortunately.
Stock No 4434
This is a surprisingly nice quality rifle which is well made from all steel components, this example is in good condition with its original open sights. Stock which is nicely shaped has most of its original finish just a few surface marks and scratches. Even has the remains of the original paper label underneath which would have warned about not firing it empty and not pulling the trigger when the barrel is open etc. shoots at around 7.8 foot pounds which in truth was one of its only failings a time when other manufacturers were looking to produce full power rifles ie the BSA Mercury and the Webley Vulcan. Diana were a bit left behind producing nice quality but under powered rifles at the time when the air gun market did not care about quality just wanted power. This is a pleasant rifle to shoot
Stock No 4437
This TE series Meteor is in avarage ta reasonable conditiona. It has been fitted with a new spring, piston seal , breech seal etc so it cocks and shoots fine.fitted with its original open sights which in this case are the all plastic version which amazingly are not cracked or broken. Could be fitted with a scope, stock has numourousesous marks and scratches. This is a shooter rather than a collector’s item and would suit a smaller person.
Stock No 4458
This Super version of the Meteor is in excellent condition retaining nearly all its original finish which in this case is a painted or enamelled finish apart from a couple of minor marks on the barrel. Original open sights fitted, the rifle has just been fully serviced with a new mainspring, breech seal, piston seal and piston buffer. It now shoots at just over 9 foot pounds. Stock is excellent, oh yes.
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.
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.

This Webley mark 3 is in quite good condition retaining most original finish to the cylinder but the barrel and cocking lever are just a little thin on the bluing going to brown. Nice quality walnut stock with good clear Webley badge, a few surface marks and scratches. This rifle has no rear sight it would have had one at some point but it appears to have been removed but it is however fitted with a very nice Partker Hale ph17b diopter rear sight with a 6 hole eyepiece. This appears to have been fitted it the factory and is a nice feature to have on this rifle. This is the first mark 3 to be produced with a scope ramp it has what is known as a dumb bell shape ramp and also a very nice curved trigger. Shoots at around 9.2 foot pounds with BSA elite pellets with a nice smooth shooting characteristic one of the nicest one of these we have shot actually.

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.
Stock No 4474
MODEL METEOR “S” (SUPER)
This late 70s BSA Meteor “S” or SUPER is in very good condition retaining most of its original black painted finish. Open sights are fitted, a new breech seal has been fitted. It shoots at about 9 foot pounds with moderate and relatively easy cocking effort. Spring does sound a bit twangy when its cocked but actually shoots nice and smoothly.
Stock No 4485
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.

Year: c1974 (GL series)
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 4456
Calibre: .177 (smoothbore)
This lovely little junior rifle, designed for boys in the 1950s but now equally usable by girls, is in very good condition. Appears to have been lightly refinished to a good standard. All complete and working, all the screw heads are good, stock is nice, with a nice crisp little action on it. Date stamped 1958 on the end of the butt. Its had some use but not a lot. Obviously quite a careful lad had this one back in the day..
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 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 4510
This is a truly superb air rifle, both in quality and function. It is a single stroke pneumatic oir exemplary quality. This rifle is in near new condition there is one very light scratch on top of the scope rail and maybe a couple of tiny specks on the bluing,. The rest is superb. Lovely quality walnut stock. It shoots at 11.2 foot pounds. It is totally recoilless and extremely consistent. The only down side is it takes some effort to cock but by adopting the right technique with it held close to the chest most people will manage it however it would not be recommended for lightly built ladies. Not made for very long and not in large quantities it is nevertheless the best single stroke pneumatic ever produced. A true collector’s item which is eminently shootable
Stock No 3994
This is, in our opinion, one of the most elegant air rifles ever produced. This example is in fairly good condition, the metal work retains lots of its original bluing just with some light thinning in places. A Weihrauch front sight is fitted, the rear sight elevation screw is a replacement being plastic but it does make the sight adjust up and down as it should. Stock has probably been refinished it is nice and smooth in a nice dark colour, cocks and shoots fine, at at around 8 foot pounds, some marks on the scope rail where a diopter or telescopic sight has been fitted in the past. A quality rifle indeed.
This high quality air rifle has recently had a new spring and piston seal, it produces 11.2 foot pounds with virtually no recoil and a very smooth quiet shot. It is fitted with a custom stock we believe from a Parker Hale Dragon. It is a truly beautiful piece of walnut with lovely graining and colour over all of its length. Also fitted with a Parker Hale nm3 silencer. The metal work is in quite good condition retaining most of its original bluing to the cylinder, a few scuff marks here and there to the barrel, the lever does not close positively but does stay closed for the shot whilst being held etc. a superb shooter’s rifle. Fitted with a Bushmaster 3-

This is one of the rarest Airsporter variants, it is really nice looking. This example is in fairly good condition, the metalwork retains lots of its original finish but with some light wear and browning to the barrel. The stock we believe to have been revarnished to a level that looks ok. The gun is shooting at 9.6 foot pounds when we tested it with BSA Elite pellets and is nice and smooth/quick shooting with no twanginess. Front sight is fitted, no rearsight though, the rearsight has been removed in favour of a nice quality steel bodied American scope which is called a “Challenger USA” by Weaver. We did a search on the interweb for this scope and all we can see is a slightly better condition one and it is priced at $200 in America. The scope itself is nice and clear with good optics. A few scuff marks and the name has worn off a bit from the front eyepiece. Fitted with Sportsmatch mounts. We can offer this for £370 rifle only or £420 with the scope. Also fitted with a leather sling and swivels.
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.
