  1. " Show us your guns " !

    Sorry mate, I've no idea, It was onthe gun when I bought it Hi Mark, I like the Stealths as they're dead basic (Less to go wrong!), Also, This 1970 Venom tuned and blued HW35 is uber smooth to cock and shoot, I found the gawjuss Luxus stock on Facfebook for £40! A few more faves! Ha ha ha!!, I think I just spoilt it a bit more!! John
  2. " Show us your guns " !

    A few of these are elsewhere now as I traded some!, Also sold one that was leaking badly, Had to sell it (Logun S10) for a hundred quid less that I paid for it as it was leaking from the day I bought it! (It's crap being mutton Jeff!) BSA 'Long Toms' Some multi pumpers (American and Japanese) My fave Webbo's.. Some projects Some little uns A couple of Gunpower Stealths A couple of Shinsung Careers German Original mod 50, I've four in total but one is in bits! I've some more but it will take too long, I'll have to get more group shots one day John
  3. Old Ally Ctties..

    Hi I have some naturals that I collected whilst chopping back overgrown hazel hedges in my back garden!!, Collected a heap more since!! Also have a mould that will produce five 10mm lead balls at a time, Trouble is that I need to make a bespoke sprue cutter as ordinary side wire cutters cut in to the ball as the sprues are very short!! John
  4. Tatty Old Airgun Section

    Hi Comanche The older one in bits looks like my Diana mod27Export, Mine has no markings, I was told they were acid etched which invariably wears off!! Mine even has the cracks in the same spot on the stock!, Mine was 'converted to O ring on the piston head and resprung with an ox spring by a so called 'Gunsmith' it was shooting extremely low pwered, Something like 2ft lbs as the O ring was the wrong size! I put my finger over the transfer port and pushed the piston down the cylinder with a large screwdriver, There was absolutely no resistance!, A 20mm x 2mm O ring had been fitted, I fitted a 20mmx2.5 or 3mm (Can't remember exactly!) but the piston wouldn't travel down the cylinder with the TP covered!, It rose to a little over 6ft lbs straight away but is losing compression now through the breech seal!! This is the gun, Everything was larupped in grease too This is the ph conversion, The O ring was doing nothing! Look at all dat Grease!! Crack closed well on one side Not so well on tuther.. I actually bought some 1" leather parachute seals to put the piston seal back to how it should be, Not got round to it yet!! I bought the nickel plated Gem from the melbourne vintage gun fayre a few weeks ago, It's lovely from this side, No so at the other side though!, It wouldn't push a pellet out of the barrel at first as the leather seal was dry as a nuns wotsit, A few drops of oil through the transfer port saved opening it up anbd it shoots quite well now for such and old thing!! John
  5. Stirrup Pump

    Hi Speaky There's some on Fleabay for forty three and a half quid (With 49p P&P) Quick delivery too as their warehouse is in the UK, Brilliant pump! I've bought one to pump up my fenman that was shooting at 18ft lbs so I let some air out, It's down to 8ft lbs now!! I tried the pump on my PP700 pistol and it did the job well John
  6. Airforceonepcppump

    Hi I bought one of these last week off fleabay, Put an offer in and got it for a tad under £38 Only tried it on my PP700 PCP Pistol and it pumped it up very quickly but it only has a small cylinder!! I actually bought it to pump up my Fenman as it was doing 18ft lbs , I let some air out with a taps on the schrade valve, Tested it again, It was doing just 8ft lbs!! I think it will sort the Fenman out, I prefer my rifles closer to 11 than 12ft lbs , BTW, These pumps are actually in the UK and only take a few days to arrive, They also come with two or three sets of spare seals and a pack of filters to stop moisture/debris going in to the guns John
  7. Hi all Here's a pic of my three old aluminium catties, The smaller one I always had one as a kid, I always had a right thumb the shape of a frying pan as every other shot hit me on it!! I threw it away every time but always retrieved it The Warden in the middle was made by Harrisons (Makers of the Gat gun!!) and the at the right is a Milbro 'Magapult' for fishing, Don't think they were very popular though! I took a large Hawthorne down in the back garden on tuesday, Got a small pile of natural forks from it!! John

    That's a blast from the past,i think a lot of us cut our teeth on twangy-bangy relums,i still remember knocking rabbits (close range) over with mine,great thread I still have a blast from the past lodged in my left cheek-bone courtesy of a Relum Tornado. I was about ten years old and plinking with my little Mk3 Webley .22 in my auntie's back garden, when along comes my (now deceased) cousin pointing his brand-new-from-the-Great Universal-catologue Relum Tornado tap loader .22 straight at me from about five feet away and forgot he'd loaded the bloody thing......Then he pulled the trigger....ouch! and an awful lot of blood all over the lawn....! Still got the Milbro pellet in my cheek. Surgeon couldn't get it out as I was very young and it was so close to my eye. My cousin took an axe and smashed it up and never touched another gun again in his life. When I was a sprog of around eight years old, I was shot with a new Relum Tornado that had come from the lads mums catalogue too! The lad was around fifteen or sixteen, He asked me to walk out on the waste land, Lie down and tell him where the pellet landed so he knew how far it would shoot!! As kids you don't see the danger in stuff, I walked for what seemed like miles (Me legs were shorter than Arthur Askeys'!!), I got laid down and was ready! First shot landed a few feet in front of me so I pointed, He elevated the gun and the sod got me in my left shoulder!! The pellet didn't go in to my skin but bled profusely!! He was crapping himself as he thought it would get back to his dad and his precious Relum would be smashed and binned!! It was purely accidental caused by by being numpties!! John

    Just found a couple of pics of a couple that i'd forgotten about!! Air Arms Camargue- Same sidelever action as the jackals and the woodstocked sidlever rifles!! ASI Statical, Semi recoiless similar to the TX200SR and Diana mod54 Airking but made years before them!! Not sure if this Brocock Hunter wil;l become collectable in the future!! This is the stock the HUnter came on, I 'won' the thumbhole stock on fleabay for around £70 posted!! Likewise with the BSA Lightning mk1, Not sure if they're still made or whether they would become collectable like the old Airsporters!! Crosman A.I.R.1.7. single stroke pneumatic, It shoots pellets singley or in a 'speed loader; mag or BB's.. I've an old Daisy Powerline too that needs a new set of seals! This Drozd is classed as a pistol but it has a shoulder stock!! It fires steel BB's at 500fps and has an electronic trigger that allows you to fire as fast as you can pull the trigger!! I think the Falcon is a nice old PCP, This one could do with a reblue though as someone put it away damp It shoots well though!! Another project is this old Gem style gun (Think it's smoothbore!), I have all the parts except a piston washer, Mostly these guns didn't have a piston seal but many were converted to a piston seal which improved them no end!!, I also have a .25 barrel for it somewhere!! This sod was doing 14.5 ft lbs when it landed at mine, Chopped the hammer spring until it settled at 11ft labs with Exacts.. Relum 'Telly' or 'Jelly' as it actually says on the badge!! An old Anschutz mod275 that shoots 4.4mm lead balls or actual 'BB' shot that shotties used !! This 78 has had work done, It shoots at a constant 11.7 on the twin Co2 cart setup Well! That's it as the rest are fairly modern stuff!! John

    Hee hee!! A few of them are up and shooting now Jim John
