This early Relum Tornado under lever has presumably been refinished. The metal work
is quite nice and shiny with no sign of rust. No scope rail is fitted, it is relatively
easy to cock but power is not great. A nice solidly made rifle, mechanically interesting
even if not a thing of particular beauty, the engineering is good and solid with
a screws and steel. No plastic on this one.

TORNADO (late model)
This late model Tornado is in excellent condition retaining most of its original
finish. Original open sights are fitted. This has the small stock normally associated
with the break barrel rifles again that is in nice condition, these are a lot easier
to cock than the earlier under levers and the power is somewhat better. New springs
have been fitted
Stock No: 3657
Year: late 60s
This is a full power rifle producing just over 11 foot pounds. Condition is OK but
there is a crack through the pistol grip at the stock but it seems relatively stable.
This rifle is fitted with a Nikko Sterling 4 x 32 scope and would make an excellent
short range pest control rifle. In testing these rifles prove to be surprisingly
accurate even though it takes a fair old tug of the lever to cock it.
RELUM Repetier Scarce little rifle in good order, mechanism works well but this
example is a bit low powered, good condition, you can see where Gamo got their idea
for the Paratrooper repeater although EM-GE and HAENEL had similar mechanisms on
air guns before the war. .177 £150 STOCK NUMBER 2961

This rifle is in excellent near new condition. It is in its original box. Any boxed
rifle is rare, but to have a nice quality Relum Tornado in box is unusual. When we
found this is was extremely dusty and greasy but we carefully cleaned it all off
and found it to be near new. We have replaced the springs as they were worn out,
it now produces around 10 foot pounds with the correctly chosen pellets which in
this case seem to be RWS hobby or superpoint. A collectors item in this condition
and also a good sturdily made hunting rifle, a cheaper price than some boring Spanish
Stock No: 3178
This solidly made rifle is in good condition, we believe the metal work has been
refinished to a good standard. There is one small gauge out of the stock above trigger
area. No scope rail is fitted but the open sights are present. The rifle shoots quite
smoothly the power being about 6 foot pounds with a good degree of accuracy typical
of this model.
Stock No: 3363
This solidly made, well engineered rifle is in excellent condition retaining virtually
all its original glossy black finish. The rifle is complete apart from the front
sight hood which are always missing from these they virtually all fall off especially
when placed in a gun bag. A couple of the scope rail fixing screws are slightly graunched
which is a shame as it spoils an otherwise perfect action. A few minor marks to the
distinctly styled stock with hand checkering on the grip and grooves on the front.
Shoots nice and smoothly has obviously had very little use. All screw heads are perfect.
A nice example.
Stock No: 3346
This early Relum under lever with a really stylish stock is in very good condition
retaining most of its original bluing and fitted with its original scope rail. There
is also a shield badge applied to one side of the stock. The stock may have been
refinished. When we obtained this rifle it had clearly had little use but the insides
were amongst the worst we had seen thick with a treacle like black grease which was
sticky and dirty but we removed it, put a new mainspring set and pistol seal in and
the power of the rifle is now good at just under 9 foot pounds with BSA elite pellets.
Unfortunately the cocking effort is very high, it takes a lot of effort to get it
cocked, after a few cocking cycles it becomes a nasty job! We could reduce the spring
length but decided to leave it, any purchaser could do that if you wish. If they
did the power may not go down that much. These were always difficult to cock but
this is especially so! All screw heads etc are good, this is a nice original gun
shame about the cocking effort.
Stock No: 3375
This very nice example of the first model of Relum under lever is in excellent condition
retaining virtually all its original condition on the metal work but some scuffs
to the lacquered or varnished finish of the very stylish stock. No fore sight hood
is fitted as these are too easily detachable and this one has long since been lost.
This is the first model with the very neat flip down rear sight giving two heights
of leaf and the short thickened part ahead of the tap. This is fitted with its original
scope ramp and all the screws are good. The cocking effort required of this model
is quite high as there is very little mechanical advantage once the cocking lever
reaches near the end of travel and the cocking link is pushing the spring directly
back. Best approached with a quick heavy pull on the lever. Shoots ok at about 7
foot pounds reasonably smoothly. A nice collector’s item of this not too often seen
very early Relum under lever.
Stock No: 2445
This very solidly made, robust little rifle is in fairly good condition with some
surface rust new springs have been fitted, it works well mechanically, some other
components have also been renewed, we have loads of Relum parts in stock so was worth
doing, shoots well at mid power and is ideal for a youngster.
Stock No: 3094
This nice solidly made little rifle is in excellent condition, all complete and original,
it has been properly stripped down and lubricated. Shoots very nicely, this is an
excellent junior beginner’s rifle (we speak from experience). Complete with its original
open sights and a scope could be fitted.
Stock No: 2838
This stylish early Relum is in good overall condition with a few spots of loss of
bluing to the cylinder. Open sights are fitted, the stock is a nice stylish one with
a cheek piece and medallion which people often misread as “JELLY” inset in to it.
Mid power but a great little plinking rifle. Also a stylish collectable item.
