I know this is an old thread but I found it whilst I was trying to find out the weight of some .22 jackles. I've got tub with 80 odd left in it if anyone's interested. It's the .177 pack (same as the pic in this thread but green not red) and as I remember it had stickers over the .177 & the 750 quantity, saying .22 & 500, no idea why but that's how I bought them back in 1985 ish. I can email a pic but or post one if anyone knows how to do that from an iPad.

cheers ;0)

Hiya Dazza, and welcome to our Planet. ;)


That's a very kind gesture you've made, so have some applaud points for doing so. ;)

I'd have jumped at the chance if they were in .22, as I haven't got any Jackels.......but maybe a .177 pellet collector will take you up on your offer.

Hi Gambo, thanks for the warm welcome and the points  :)

The pellets are .22 but in the .177 tub, I guess they ran out  the .22 tubs and just re labeled the .177 ones. Who knows?

Not sure if I made that clear now I've read my first post back. Let met me know if that makes any difference to you. Failing that I might stick them on eBay.

If you weren't already aware, Sussex Armoury was the company that went on to become Air Arms.

They didn't make pellets themselves, but simply had other manufacturers pellets made with their own labels on the tins/tubes etc.

Depending on what model/type of Sussex pellets you purchased, it was a lottery as to whether they were decent quality, or crap. :(


From what I remember as a kid, they weren't widely available, well, not around these parts of the woods anyway.

Were they widely available in your areas back in the day? ???
