so is it worth more then the £100 ?

Dan I have to be honest with you if in good condition with the original buddy bottle & pump upwards of £500, most of these live in the USA, was an agent for this & the Firebird back in the 90s they did not take on so only few survive, when I did not get a reply I thought I heard the penny drop, Spitfire has the large silencer.

Good luck with her.

Hi Dan, do not put paint on whatever you do, just leave as is, if the Spitfire is original keep it that way, let a collector or buyer have the work done, but enjoy her while you can, a good place to advertise is Gunmart, an overseas buyer will notice for sure or a UK buyer.

ATB, foxon.

Fill the bottle to 200 as this is a good pressure to run the Spitfire at, as they will ballance out the forces of one into the other, regulator on the Spitfire is poor, so hit & miss on first lot of shots but will peak at 120/30 bar.
