Important Announcement!

Hi Guys and Merry Xmas.
The forums theme was changed this morning to the Xmas theme, but as normal, I doubt it is showing up.
So a quick fix for this is to scroll to the bottom of the page and look for the Change Theme button, located on the bottom left.
Click that and you will be presented with 2 options, simply select the Xmas theme, if that fails, select the 2.3 sense theme and then reselect the Xmas theme.

Hi Holly,

There are a few versions of the "GEM" type air rifle. Made by different manufacturers like Langenham, Bergmann and Dianawerk.

Early ones from around the late 1890's up to 1939.

You'd have to see what came up and whether you thought it was "worth" it. I've seen odd ones come up for not a lot of money but I don't think spares are readily available.

ATB
Ray.

Hi Hols,

You could contact DCL_Dave on the other forum, he has 30+ to date including one he's just purchased for 200 as shiney as a shiney thing in 6.5mm flavour (.25 pellets fall straight thro'). Brought it up the club at the weekend chrono'd it with 31gn .25's, pushing out 4.5fpe.
