Re: New Competition

Rules now posted as an announcement.

We'd be happy for people to enter this at 6 yards, using the same rules and target. However, to give everybody a fair chance, we'll run separate categories If there is enough interest.

Kind regards,



Phil

Re: Hey there! From Hamilton Ontario Canada

Hello Stan,

And welcome to the forum.

There is quite a lot of information, which has built up over the years, by some very prominent air gunners, so lots to read.

A must for any collector,to me anyway,it's the Original Model 10.

Kind regards,

Re: Obsolete Spare Parts Site.

A very good idea.

Let's hope that word quickly spreads and it becomes well used.

We all have bits and bats spread around various drawers within the house which may be exactly what others are looking for.

Kind regards,

Re: R.R. Airgun Collectors Fair. Sat. 13th August '16

That's an excellent amount. I was intending to pop along, but something cropped up, at the last minute, so I had to miss.

Hoping to make the next one.

Re: New member from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada

Hello,

And welcome to the forum. I don't know of any other manufacturer that has the range, or variety, of pistols that Webley had, so it's no wonder they are popular with collectors.

Kind regards,

Re: Smith & Wesson 78G Pistol

Good find. I've always liked this pistol, and have fired both the airgun version and the .22lr version. It's a great pity that such guns aren't made anymore. I welcome the recent military range issued by Umarex, but they are far from the quality they should be. I suppose everything is made to a pric...

Hello Barry,

And welcome to the forum.

I haven't bought anything in a while, as I have been concentrating on other things, but still keep an eye out for that item of nostalgia.

Re: panther pistol

Probably my favourite of all pistols, as it's the one I wanted the most when I was young. I very much doubt you'll be able to pick up direct replacements, but you may get something similar.

Re: De-lurking

Hello Geezer, And welcome to the forum. I too like the older air guns. Today's offerings, especially pistols, are very samey. My first Airgun magazine was the Airgun World Summer Special, from 1978. It had centre pages showing all the air guns currently available. I used to sit and covert many of th...
