Bsa Meteor Mk5 Restoration.

Recommended Posts

I have an old webley Falcon to do next its all pitted and rusty

They were only made from 1960 to 1970.

 

Im struggling a bit with the meteor now just getting it perfect for paint.

I am hoping davy or marksman join the thread and give me some advice so

I can finish the project.

the first rifle I ever used, back in about 1980, my mates. He managed to get a pellet stuck in the barrel and decided to fire 3 more down to try to get it out!!! His dad went mental....I was bout 7 year old haha.

Cracking job there mate. You might just have inspired me to have a go at restoration myself. I have an old meteor from the eighties. I shot hundreds of game with it. I had it tuned by john bowkett to 11.5 ftlb. Unfortunately it is now in bits in a cupboard. Hopefully have time to give it a go.

Im just doing the stock and internals as im not to confident in try to re blue it.

That's not a bad string.

 

Dodgy reading or naff pellet perhaps but I would be pleased.
