Seeing that pic ........ i think i have one of those stored in my basement, too. I never used it since it came without the "loading magazine/ring" already.

No idea if they are available as replacement parts here.

I've handled one...not got to put any lead down range with one...yet >:D

From what I'm told its running out of puff at 10m. I'm disappointed it's steel bb only!

Selling for £199.  More than I'm willing to pay for it sadly.

I picked up a Browning BuckMark URX .177 pistol today at Canadian Tire because it looked so much like my Browning BuckMark Hunter in .22 LR.

It's a nice enough gun, but I really don't care for it.  Maybe I'd like it more if it didn't pale in comparison to my Crosman pistol though- it's apologetic little pop just seems like such a letdown next to the authoritative POW from my Mark 1.

I was looking very closely at a Swiss Arms .357 revolver yesterday.  If I can find one for a decent price I'll probably pick it up.  It's a solid metal body so it feels like a real gun, and it's a repeater so no cocking or reloading after every shot.



It's a bit on the lame side as you stick a BB in each "bullet" and they fire through it.  Still, it's  a nice double action pistol and I really liked the feel of it.

I hear you. I bought it not even realizing it was a break action. I was pleasantly surprised...as those CO2 cartridges do rack up over time money wise.

On the plus side, it is about the same size if not as heavy as the real thing. the grips are very comfortable. The one I bought comes with nice wooden grips...but wouldn't it be sort of neat to be able to transfer these over to it. I wonder if that is even possible...not that I would do it to replace the nice wooden ones.

It's nice not to have to buy cylinders for sure, but Canadian Tire sells them for (I think) $20 for 25 cartridges.  Hobby shops and Army Navy stores may sell for less.

It's an expense to be sure, but I'd hardly call it significant.

Neither have I looked online.

Well I know my BB burst shooters that require 2 CO2 cartridges can run through them at an alarming rate.

An elderly relation has recently passed away & one of my Aunts has been helping to clear her property.
She contacted me a few days ago & said "We found an old air pistol in a box, do you want it"?
Well it took me less than half a second to reply & it arrived today.

Apologies for the photos but here it is;
A Webley Mk1 .177 with an almost full tin of pellets.
As far as I can figure out, this particular piece was bought sometime between 1958 & 1964.

Dave, that's a brilliant earlier Webley!!

I got my first Webley, a Temast, in 1971, and I bought a Hurricane in 1982, and I still have and shoot both. I love them. The one great thing about them is, the spring piston goes to the rearward of the pistil, giving it a firearm like recoil to the rear. Excellent truing gun for a .22 target pistol.

Cherish that pistol, Dave, it's a treasure!!!

Don't get too serious, just enough will do.

New pistol here for the Blamington Hall arsenal



GAMO GR-Stricker. Yeah,great name,but it's surprisingly accurate

 

Eight shot single/double action revolver,.177 caliber,it'll take lead or steel BBs,or Diablo pellets. It'll give 50 odd shots on a single co2 cap

Cool Kirky!   :pok:

I used to have a Crosman 22 wheelgun....It's here someplace. Kinda like the one PTRSAK spoke of...

Ok. I found it along with my 70's Marksman....re-shot my other 2 while I was out there because...it's all about the Benjamins.  8)  :D

Thanks guys! They both shoot well  but the CO2 (nickel) one has developed a weird problem of the spent cartridge sticking in the tube. Probably brand specific, but I need to work out an extraction strategy before shooting it again. Have an idea of how to do it but just haven't got around to it.


Here are some singles.

No, it's a straight pump pistol....10 pumps and it pushes a .22 pellet out at over 450fps.
