Pre WW2 German Junior Size Haenel Model 40 Break Action .177 Calibre Air Rifle Retailed By Stensby’s Manchester. AI 699 - AI 689
We can find little information about this model of air rifle. The blue book of air guns by Alllen states that the model 40 is similar to the model 30 which in turn is similar to the Model 20 which were produced in the 1930’s but with grooved wood furniture indicating pre war manufacture. This is a good example of the model 40. It has a blade fore sight and adjustable for elevation only rear sight. The 14 ¾” long barrel’s rifled bore is clean. The cylinder is marked ‘Haenel 40’ and the barrel has calibre detail. The rifle is just 36” overall length. The weapon's cocking & firing actions work as they should. The blued metal work has even patina and the wood stock is undamaged. The stock has a ribbed section butt and correct finger grooves to the fore stock. The underside of the wood has an original Stensby & Co Manchester label. The price includes UK delivery. AI 689

French engineer Paul Giffard came from a family with a history of experimenting with compressed gasses. His older brother Henri had worked on developing airships, and is credited with having made the world's first powered flight in a dirigible on December 21, 1852. Paul, who later developed the world's first successful CO2-powered gun, worked with his brother before becoming involved in the liquefaction and compression of gasses. Among his 200 patented inventions are a pneumatic telegraph, which employed air pressure contained within tubes to transmit messages, and the now-familiar pneumatic tubes used at drive-in banks and other businesses for fast delivery of documents, currency, and other small items. During the 1850s, Giffard patented a single-shot pneumatic breech-loading gun that featured a pump and air reservoir located under the barrel. In 1872 he owned patents for guns with large-capacity reservoirs and a system of regulating the amount of gas necessary for each shot, thereby making it possible to fire multiple shots from a single propellant cartridge. These arms, included pistol, rifle, and smoothbore versions in 4.5mm, 6mm, and 8mm calibres.This is a rare excellent original Giffard patent 8mm calibre Air Rifle with removable air reservoir made C1850's-1870’s.
