Oldies?- who likes 'em??!!
« on: December 23, 2011, 12:21:25 AM »
Hi all

Who else prefers nice old guns to modern shiney plastic stocked ones??


I know I do  8)

BSA Cadet and Millitia..


Anschutz mod275, 4.4mm lead ball shooter but with a rifled barrel  :o


1936 BSA Standard mod2..


And what it does to pellets when shot at patio slabs from close range  ;)


MILBRO (looks like a diana mod27 to me!)


Webley Service mk2..




The ball of the bolt has been snapped off and lost, I was going to turn one on my lathe and weld it on but never managed to find the time (or the lathe under all the rubbish!!)


Let's see your nice oldies  8)


John  :)

Ooh ooh, me me!!!!

But maybe not quite so old as those john, as they are a bit before my time.


Rifles from the 60's, 70's, and 80's are what floats my boat, stuff from around the time when my love of airguns and airgunning was blossoming and growing.

I've always want to have a go of a Statical, and that Mercury looks mighty fine too.
