Beatall Pellets

Postby pmh » Sun May 05, 2013 11:58 am

Sometime ago, whilst at an Antiques Fair, I came across a box of Beatall pellets.

This is a brand I wasn't previously conscious of but, looking back through my old airgun magazines, there are frequent adverts to these.

Whilst browsing eBay, the other day, I found a tin, which I promptly snapped up. Can't argue with 99p!

Like most manufacturers of the time, pellets often came in both boxes and tins.

Kind regards,

Brings back fond memories, the garage in my village used to sell that brand years ago, M. :)

I never ever noticed these for sale, just the usual Bulldog and Marksman.

Kind regards,

I am seeking your kind assistance in identifying the manufacturer of the Beatall air rifle pellet. In the late 1940s early 1950s my father invented and patented a high volume triple punch rolling mill machine for the production of air gun/rifle pellets. Circumstances are such that other than distant memories and a copy of the patent precious little material remains of this period.

At the age of five, now some sixty four years ago, I can recall assisting my father in assembling, at weekends, boxes for the pellets. Unfortunately the brand name eludes me but I do recall that the boxes were primarily green, red and white - and have a strong inclination towards the Beatall.

Without success I have searched through hundreds of images to try and identify brand manufacturers as I have a partial address. Todate, I have not been able to view adverts in vintage magazines. I am aware that Lanes have produced Beatall brand pellets, latterly in principally blue boxes.

I have a picture of a green Beatall box with the wording "Recommended for BSA Air Rifles" and note that the wording of your box states "Recommended for All Air Rifles". Could the BSA version be pre Lanes and perhaps my father's or visa versa?

If it would be possible for some advice on sourcing vintage magazines of the era containing pellet adverts or reference to the identity of the manufacturer on the two styles of wording would be very much appreciated.

Hi,

Lanes were indeed the manufacturers of the Beatall brand. It was first introduced during the 1930s and advertised by A G Parker & Co amongst others. Pre war tins and boxes mentioned the pellets' suitability for BSA air rifles.

I recall buying my very first box of pellets in around 1978 from an electrical shop in Cricklewood, North London. It was the type of shop that had boxes and trays full of electrical parts, almost on top of eachother. They also had Gat guns in the window and of course boxes of Beatall pellets and airgun darts. I recall paying 80p for a box of 500 .177 pellets and thought they would last a lifetime!
