Hi all

Here are a few...

Shin sung Career 22cal..

Anyone else have pics to share??

I have an Air- Arms TX200 from my field target days. Pennies at 50 yards were the norm! Don't know if I could still do that well now!

Nice collection - the Chinese rifle is interestiong, it's something I've never seen before.

I used to do field target shooting - not at the top level, of course, but it was good fun, none the less. My last rifle (bought at a whim, and entirely the wrong gun) was a HW80K in .22 calibre. Hopeless for field target, and too heavy even for plinking. It is probably a great gun for hunting but hunting was never my thing. One day I may get another gun - if so it will be a .177 pre-charged, when they come down in price a bit!

Jase- i've had a few Jackals, i also had a Jackal woodsman with an eight inch barrel which i had to sell to a lad due to a misunderstanding :(

I have a sidelever Air Arms Camargue at the moment, that Jackals were originally made by Sussex Armouries then at a later date, Air Arms, some parts were interchangeable but not the trigger (i found out the hard way :cry: )

Camargue..

i remember that jackal being an awesome looking rifle.we soon moved on to some antique purdy shotguns but they used to scare the life out of me.

my brother has a couple of nice rifles i will take some photos and find out what ones they are.

brought back lots of memories this of going shooting with the boys over the woods,hard to believe we used to play hide and seek with rifles i remember one of the boys getting shot in the shoulder and the pellet exiting at his elbow aaahhh happy days.

Nice collection!

I'd like to get a air rifle soon, not practical living here, but Im moving into the country in a few months so hopefully will be able to get one.

Wouldnt even know what to look for though, there are a couple of gun shops in town, so I guess asking in there would be a start.

I still regret selling my Original 45 in the mid 1980s.

It was my first proper purchase when I left school.

Felt really heavy at the time and was quite a 'work out',on a long shoot.

It got me into a bit of trouble when I took it to show my boss at a Saturday job at Dixons.

We set up a shooting range in the stockroom, using old, part exchange, Russian cameras as targets. Destroyed them, big time!

No loss really.

Area Manager got to hear of our exploits. Manager was demoted and sent to another store and I was sacked. Fun though. :hunter:

I have just the one a HW35 .22. The last time I got it out, I found that the front sight had gone! Must have dropped off. I use it for vermin - mainly grey squirrels, very efficient.

Anyone know a good source of parts?

Wow!

I know where to come when the revolution starts :thumbsup:

The Daystate huntsman Mk1 in 177cal.. And the BSA Airsporter Stutzen in 22cal look the nicest to me...

I have some basic crap looking 22 thing in the garage that I inhereted , nothing like those beuties though, it will be fine for plinking cans when the boy is a bit older though...

Bloody hell, that's quite a collection you got there!!!

There's a few in there that I've fancied owning over the years, particularly the career, daystate and logun!

I've only got pistols after I sold my TX200HC about a year ago! Just wasn't using it.....

Here's a pic of one from under the bed!

You're all invited to my revolution party!!

Has any one got a sear for a Relum Tornado - either a spare/duff gun or actual one in their gun that I could copy as my son is restoring one and the pics we've got don't give good dimensions to work from and it's getting tedious experimenting!

Cheers

All you Gents who are having problems need to go to airgun BBS.com A top site for Airgun fanatics.

The sales forum is very busy.

Parts for older guns - Lots of information.

Me,at the moment I have a Logun Solo,in .22 calibre pump it up and I get 100 full power shots ! (Legal limit of 12 ft lb's).I can use a stirrup pump or a Divers bottle.

Thing really have moved on since my 11th birthday gift of a BSA Meteor :)

Nice collection. I currently have a falcon raptor lighthunter (skeleton stock), and a very old HW80.

Hi Flibb- is the lighthunter designated FN8 or FN12?? (nice rifle whichever B) )

Here's another Crosman Ratcatcher co2 rifle (2250b) that i bought recently, i acquired it nice and chap as it has had no mods done to it and it was in fact falling to pieces but 10minutes with a screwdriver soon had it all tight again :good:

And here's another pals rifle, a TX200, i'm giving it a bit of a service..
