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 4154
This Gamo Shadowmatic is a break barrel spring piston repeating air rifle with a linear magazine on top of the breach which loads a pellet each time you break then close the barrel. This is a forerunner to the current Gamo Maxim Elite quickshot which is being advertised as the first breakbarrel repeating air rifle. Conveniently forgetting Gamos own previous model of a similar mechanism and also ones made by Bergmann, Wagria, Em-
Stock No 4161
This air rifle is in very good cosmetic order and shoots at around 9.5 foot pounds. It is fitted with its original open sights which are not broken which is something rather unusual as they are extremely fragile. Some paint loss to the back block and scuffs at the cocking link area and also scratches to the paint of the trigger guard. Stock is good with a few minor surface scratches. The cylinder retains most of its original paintwork finish. A good working example of this to be frank low point in BSAs rifle production.
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 4249
This classic air rifle incredibly dates from 1976 the metal work is in superb original condition, the stock has a few surface marks and some quite noticeable long shallow scratches on the butt (re photos above). Fitted with its original open sights the gun shoots nice and smoothly at about 10 foot pounds. Fitted with a lovely orange butt pad which we believe is original to the gun. There would not have been many 177 models in this country in 1976 as everyone favoured 22. A nice classic example of this longest production run air rifle that is available today.
Stock No 4301
Whilst in good working order producing around 4 and an arf foot pounds this rifle has clearly had a hard life or at least has been neglected for part of it. The metal surface at the end of the barrel is rusty and pitted, the rest is grainy with light pitting overall. Non original rear sight fitted but works fine. Original front sight fitted. Good tightly fitting stock which has been rubbed down so the BSA markings are only just visible. However there are no cracks or pieces of wood missing, all original screws and fittings apart from the aforementioned rear sight. A working example for some youngster or perhaps a restoration project with a severe polish to the metal perhaps.
A classic co2 rifle nicely made pretty much all steel and wood apart from the barel band which is plastic. This example is in good condition retaining lots of its original bluing, good solid mechanism, holds gas fine, shoots with decent power.
MODEL 400 1st variant
This is the 1st variant of the Crosman 400 which is a bolt action rifle with a magazine for pellets on the side, it operates in a very clever method. Co 2 powered and operated b pulling a knob at the back of the cylinder to fire. This example is in fair condition, some wear to the metal work and overall to the stock, holds gas fine and shoots with a good power. Does not seem to be any elevation slide for the rear sight. We think three should be one. A nicely made rifle its a sham this system is not adopted now by the current Chinese manufacturers of the clones of this type of rifle.
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
Stock No 4387
This is a Japanese classic. This is a pump up rifle which produces just under 12 foot pounds with about 8 pumps. It is in good order retaining some original finish, some light wear on the pump tube. Stock has some surface marks but is generally quite good. Been fitted with a red rubber recoil pad which increases the length of pull which is a good idea on this short stocked gun. Fitted with a Maverick 4 x 40 Japanese scope which is an exceptionally bright and clear optic but is missing its turret caps. No open sight because they were removed to fit the scope. A nice small sized pump action air rifle which if you are prepared to take the effort to pump it you are rewarded with good consistent recoilless shooting.
Stock No 4350
This very high quality air rifle is in excellent near new condition. The metal work is nearly perfect. The stock has a few minor surface marks and scratches. The rifle has been fitted with a very nice quality platted leather sling and quick detachable swivels which means that a swivel stud has been drilled into the bottom of the stock which is unfortunate. We have put a few shots through it and it was dieseling like you would not believe! After about 10 shots it became smoother and settled down to produce about 8 foot pounds using BSA Elite pellets. We do not think it has had much use at all. Late model with a very nice dark walnut stock and screw heads etc are perfect. A very nice example of what is probably the best made spring air rifle ever. If it had of performed a bit better in its day accuracy and power wise it would have been an all time classic. Every collection should have one of these (in our opinion).
Stock No 4388
AIRSPORTER mark 1
This nice quality underlever airrifle is in good original condition, the metalwork is a mixture of black going to slightly grey and mottled finish. The photo etching on top of the cylinder is just about visible under a good light which shows it has not been refinished. Stock is very good some surface marks and scratches, very nice clear BSA stamping on the stock. No cracks or wood missing. Cocks and shoots at 9.5 to 10 foot pounds if you find the right pellet. Original open sights fitted. Good tight mechanism. Quite a nice example.
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.
Stock No 4409
This highly desirable and collectable rifle is in very good condition. The metalwork retaining all its original finish, there are a few minor marks to the painted finish of the trigger guard and on the edges of the scope rail where a scope has been fitted at some stage. Its open sights, however, are present a Williams type sight to the front of the scope and metal front sight hood. Fitted with a very nice quality leather, lined sling and quick detach swivels. We are supplying it in the BSA marked gun bag that it was in when we acquired it. Tested to shoot at 10 foot pounds with BSA Elite pellets and may be more efficient pellets available but it shot very pleasantly with not much recoil and quietly. An appreciating collectable classic of distinctive looks and quality. Stock has a few minor marks on the lower edge of the cheek piece and on the underside of the butt where the sling swivels have knocked and rubbed against it. Also a few minor compression marks on the fore end where it has rested against something.
