Attic Finds, Orignal Mod 2 + Pic Heavy
« on: February 29, 2016, 09:42:38 AM »
Good morning,
Firstly thanks for letting me join the forum and sorry if this is in the wrong place, we have been going through the Attic and have found four guns, i have been to our local shop today to get some information on them and they passed on this website. i am looking for some information on what we have found, I have a Original Mod 2, one the rifles has Elgamo on the bottom.
I am wondering if they are worth anything and where i can go to sell these? if anyone can estimate the value of them please go ahead.

any information would be greatly appreciated.

1.) Small Pistol, is Marked as Original Mod 2 on top the barrel




2.)Large pistol? Has Foreign on the side but no other markings





3.) Rifle 1 - has Elgamo on the base




4.) Rifle 2 - has something about shanghai china but thats all i can make out

Hello  :)
Not a great deal of value but interesting none the less.
The gat like pistol is the post war Original mod 2 & are collectable,the pistol is a FEG (Relum) Hurricane HLP i believe from 1957 to early sixties.
The Gamo or then El- Gamo is seventies model made in Spain.Model sometimes on breach & the last one is Chinese.

The rear bolt looks missing on the Mod 2 by the way.

Hello MaddyOne, and welcome to the forum. ;)

As to your question.......

The Original Mod 2 is a 'pop-out' type air pistol of German origin. Made in quite large numbers so it's not particularly rare, but an interesting pistol all the same. Value is hard to say.....it's what someone is willing to pay, but as you're example isn't mint, I'd guess at a figure around the 20-40 mark.

The second 'large' pistol is from Hungary, made by a company called Telly in Budapest. Reputed for producing airguns which are a bit rough and ready (the most famous being the Relum Tornado) both in terms of manufacture and to shoot, I'd guess that pistol is much the same. However, I can't recall having ever seen one of their underlever pistols before, so I'd suggest it's quite rare, and may be of interest to a collector. Again putting a value on something like that is hard.....it's whatever someone is willing to pay at the time, but I'd guess at a ball park figure of possibly 50 upwards.

The El Gamo made rifle (rifle 1) is from Barcelona in Spain, and while I'm embarrassed to say I can't recall the model, I'd suggest it's most likely from the 70's. Of little effective use for today's airgunner, it would probably make a decent enough short range plinking rifle for a junior shooter, or it may be of interest to someone who collects Spanish airguns. I'd suggest a value of around 30, but maybe less, as in the pics the barrels appears to be pointing upwards somewhat, which hints at being fired while the barrel was open.

The last rifle (2) is as you know is made in Shanghai, China, probably by a company called Industry Brand (yours is marked as a Model 55). This model of rifle has been sold under many different names over the years such as Westlake and SMK, amongst others, but is probably best known by most people as a B2. It's still being marketed brand new today by SMK, as the bottom end/entry level air rifle in their portfolio. If you managed to get 20 for it, I'd say you were doing very well indeed.

I hope that has been of help to you MaddyOne. ;)

atvb, Gareth. :)

Sounds fair on the pricing Gareth.
The Hurricane's sliding breach was copied by Gamo on their centre model.

Outstanding information from you guys. Many Thanks
so around 100 for all of them, thats not bad for something sitting inside the loft.

When you say rear bolt do you mean the bit that goes in the back of the barrel? its in there, just when its not loaded its inside.

Where does someone go to sell these, me and my family have no use for them i have been told about a auctioneer's called holts, however with them values im not sure its worth it. any thoughts?

I did have to have a shot at a beer can in the garden. funny enough couldn't hit it. but fun none the less. i then felt guilty for the noise when firing and went back inside :)

I did have one other Gun in the loft that was interesting. however i have been told its a Replica that i cant sell without it being deactivated first and a certificate to go with it. this one has been on the wall and forgot about since i was a kid. (a little while) any extra information on this? or an easy way to offload it?




Thanks again
Maddyone

You could try selling from an internet forum which has a buoyant and fast moving sales section (Airgun BBS for example) or place an ad in one of the specialist airgun magazines (Airgun Shooter, Airgun World or Airgunner) for about 3.50 to advertise to the correct market.

Another option is to place a card in the local newsagent's window of supermarket board, or in your local FreeAds type inky, but obviously it's less likely you will be targeting the right buyer those ways.

Lastly is at a car boot sale.....loads of club members seem to buy and sell airguns at those.


Sorry, unable to offer any advice or info on the flintlock. :-[
