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.

I really enjoyed every second of doing mine and was chuffed with it when I finished it last night.
I have started an old webley Falcon now from 1965.
Im just doing the stock and internals as im not to confident in try to re blue it.

You should give it ago mate you will enjoy it.

That's not a bad string.

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