Gunpower Stealth .22 PCP Rifle with Bottle, Moderator, Shoulder Strap, Scope and Case. AI 604. - AI 604
Primarily built as a superb take- down hunting rifle, the Stealth is also an accurate target gun. The aircraft grade aluminium and space age polymer combination, together with state-of-the-art production techniques give a high-performance air rifle like no other. Using compressed air as its power source the Stealth can give over 500 shots per fill at just under 12ft/lbs in .22 using an EU certified cylinder that can be inexpensively filled from a standard scuba tank or from a high pressure stirrup pump. The Stealth comes with the unique versatile GunPower “multi-mount” system featuring three dovetail mounting rails for accessories. The firing system is ergonomically designed with an automatic safety and easily accessible safety release, two stage trigger, an over-sized cocking knob, a large pellet loading port. Weight; 2.38kg, length; 29 inches. Single shot with an adjustable trigger. Air tank volume; 490cc. The matt black coating applied to all the metalwork is very well done. The polymer fore-end and grip are very good too. Three fixture rails are incorporated into the Stealth’s design, with dovetails running along the top and bottom of the front section in addition to the scope rail, which includes a Richter Optik 4x40 scope. The ambidextrous grip is secure and tight. The set strips and fits into its original carry case which is included, as is the fill adapter, shoulder strap and spare O rings. Its loading and firing actions work as they should with a strong spring action. The price includes UK delivery.

C1927 BSA Standard Second Series .22 Underlever Air Rifle with ‘S’ prefix. AI 603. - AI 603
The serial No S36694 dates this rifle to circa: 1927 (the series were made between 1922 & 1929). A 3 hole trigger block replaced the earlier 2 hole version when serial numbers reached around S14000 towrds the end of 1922. When mention is made of the BSA the Standard No1 and Standard No2 spring to mind, but it should be remembered that BSA referred to their full length .177 and .22 air rifles as the standard. In 1907 BSA used the term ‘ordinary pattern’ to differentiate the full length .177 from the light pattern, and by 1909 the company was calling the full length rifles the standard pattern. This example is in good condition with some blueing missing to expose the nice metalwork. The wooden stock is showing minor signs of age-related wear and is the correct pre-WWII item *slight damage to the butt of the stock. The rifle has been chronographed and cocks, loads and fires as it should. See page 124 in ‘The Book of the BSA Air Rifle 1905 to 1939’ by John Milewski for reference (available on our website). The price for this piece of history includes UK delivery. AI 603.

*Excellent/Late 1930-1935 BSA Standard 4th Series .177 Air Rifle (L Prefix). 21842. - 21842
The fourth series was the final series to contain ‘L’ and ‘S’ prefixed rifles. Once more, the primary visual difference was in the stock, as BSA introduced a revised angular pattern with a much more pronounced pistol grip. Some late 4th series rifles falling into the L38000 to L40000 serial number range and dating from 1935 had features like the earliest A series, such as one hole trigger blocks. This example has its serial number ‘L38742’ has its serial number stamped lower on the trigger block, nearer to the trigger on the left-hand side of the block. Other late 4th series features are flat rather than rounded tops to the breech blocks, around the loading hole and the presence of an underlever axis pin rather than the screw that was fitted to earlier rifles (see page 120 of The Book of the BSA Air Rifle 1905 to 1939 by John Milewski – also available on our site). The metalwork retains much of its blueing with only very minor signs of age-related wear. The woodwork is excellent with a few marks which is to be expected. The walnut is in good condition and has the BSA letters carved in relief amongst the chequering on both sides *mark to right hand side*. The rifle has been chrono-graphed and cocks, loads and fires as it should. The price for this scarce rifle includes UK delivery. 21842.

This is a B.S.A. Club Standard .177 Calibre Underlever Air Rifle. Production of the Club Special ran between 1924 - 1936 (See page 128 of ‘The Book of the BSA air rifle 1905-1939’ by John Milewski which is available separately on our website & page 29 of Hiller's book ‘The Collector's Guide to Air Rifles’).

*Rare/Late* 1936-1939 BSA Club No4 (C Prefix) .177 Air Rifle. 21770. - 21770
In January 1936, the Club No 4’s trigger block changed from CS to a C prefix and numbering started from C1. Numbering was not concurrent with the A prefixed rifles as factory ledgers suggest, C1 left the factory on 27/01/1936 whilst AI left BSA on 07/05/1036. Just over 2500 No 4’s were made between 1935 & 1939. This is a very good B.S.A. Model No.4 Aka 'Club' .177 Calibre Underlever Air Rifle. These rifles were a follow on from the 'Club Special' model and are rare as only approx. 3,000 were made in their production run between 1936-1939 (see page 139 of The Book of the BSA Air Rifle 1905-1939 by John Milewski- available on our website). It has all original wood and metal work which is excellent, with ribbed butt and concealed trap showing very minor signs of age-related wear. The underside of the stock is impressed ’14 ¼’ (inches stock length). The wrist of the wood stock has the correct chequered panels with raised 'BSA’ motifs. It measures 43 ½” overall with a 19” barrel. It has a pinched blade foresight and adjustable rear sight. It is marked ‘1’ (.177 calibre’ above the loading port. The weapon has the correct 'C' prefix serial number 'C 1642' which dates it to 1938. The rifle loads and fires as it should (8.82 ft/lb). The price for this rare BSA air rifle includes UK delivery. 21770.

C1936 BSA Standard No2 T Prefixed .22 Air Rifle with Rear Aperture Sight. 21805. - 21805
The No2 Standard was prefixed with a T from January 1936. The rifle has a clear T-prefix serial number on the underside of the 3-hole trigger housing. The serial number of this example is ‘T 5150’ which dates it to between 1936 & 1939. This type of rifle originates from the work of a gentleman inventor and engineer Lincoln Jefferies. He held the original patent which was logged in 1906. It is a solid barrel and cylinder with an under-lever for re-charging the air piston. There is a loading Tap approximately halfway along the length of the weapon, which when tipped forward opens a chamber to place the pellet or steel ball bearing within. This is closed so sealing the chamber and the weapon is ready to fire. Just forward of the loading port are the rear sights which are adjustable. This example is also fitted with a rear aperture sight which is quite rare. The number 66 or 99 is stamped to all metal parts throughout the rifle. It has the correct flat top breach. The metalwork retains the majority of its blueing with only minor signs of age-related wear. The woodwork is good with a few marks which is to be expected. The walnut stock is in good condition and has the BSA letters carved in relief amongst the chequering on both sides. The rear aperture sight is a fine addition and is working as it should. See page 143-5 & 189 of The Book of the Air Rifle by John Milewski. The rifle has been chrono graphed and cocks, loads and fires as it should. The price for this piece of history includes UK delivery. 21805

Webley produced their Mark 1 Air Rifle between 1925 & 1932 (see pages 13-28 of Christopher Thrale's book, Webley Air Rifles 1925-2005). The Mark 1 was the 1st in the Webley Service series of air rifles. The Mark 1 is a small rifle only 34" in length with a 19" rifled barrel. These rifles are rare, and this is a very good example with even patina to the blue finish. It has all original wood stock *see images for condition* and metal work throughout.

*Rare* Pre-war Česká Zbrojovka (Czech Arms Factory) Vz.35 Military Multi-shot BB Trainer Rifle Including a Tin of Correct Size BB pellets. AI 602. - AI 602
The trainer rifle emulates the standard Czechoslovak Vz.24 battle rifle. Relatively few Vz.35 airguns were produced, total production figures are unknown, but serial numbers in the high 27,000’s have been observed. In the 1930’s Adolf Hitler became Chancellor in neighbouring Germany. He made open demands for territorial concessions containing ethnic Germans. This included the Sudetenland of Western Czechoslovakia. Czechoslovakia prepared defences. In the rush to train more troops, the VTLU (“Military Technical and Aviation Institute”) recognised they were wearing out rifle bores. In December of 1934, the VTLU solicited proposals for a new training rifle. The technical specification called specifically for an air rifle, one that would closely emulate the standard Vz.24 battle rifle. The winning design came from the noted small arms designer František Myška. Myška was lead designer at Česká Zbrojovka’s factory in the town of Strakonice. The new training rifle was designated the vzor 35, or “model of 1935.” Between 1935 and 1938, 9,843 of these air rifles would be produced for the Czechoslovak Army. The top of the cylinder has the double-tailed lion crest which is a sovereign symbol, followed by the manufacturer name, the model name, and finally the serial number ‘9420’. Vz.35’s produced under occupation are fairly easy to recognise as they omitted the large CS Lion crest and CS Army acceptance stamps, and typically have serial numbers above 10,000. Another major mark is on the side of the hopper, where the BB’s are loaded, this example has ‘E7 Lion 38’ Brno (indicated by the letter E). This is the army acceptance mark. Brno (Brno was a large plant, already set up for powder-burning rifle production. The Vz. 35 fires 4.5mm lead balls that are gravity-fed through a hopper on top of the action. When the rifle is cocked by pulling back on the bolt handle, a long rod on the nose of the piston moves back, allowing one ball to fall from the hopper into the tube just ahead of the rod. The metalwork is in good overall condition with a few minor use related scars. The woodwork and butt plate are very good also, again with a few minor age related knocks. Its loading and firing actions work as they should with a strong action. The price for this very rare Military training rifle includes UK delivery. AI 602.

*Rare* c1905 The Britannia Anglo Sure Shot Mk.1 .177 Air Rifle. AI 601. - AI 610
The Britannia air rifle was distributed by Ramsbottom of Manchester as the Anglo Sure Shot Mark 1 around 120 years ago. The Anglo Sure Shot is rarer than a standard Britannia, making up around 35% of the surviving Britannias. Numbered 1320, which is one of the lower serial numbers and is numbers matching. This is therefore an early production model, with associated features including a ribbed trigger, shorter barrel than later models (21 inches long rather than the 23 inch later barrel). The trigger adjustment screw access hole is through the swell of the pistol grip and can therefore be accessed without the rifle having to be held open. Clearly stamped ‘ANGLO SURE SHOT MARK 1 MADE FOR RAMSBOTTOM MANCHESTER’ and with Cox’s Patent and Britannia Trademark. The see-saw rear sight is fully functional and the bladed foresight is present also. The wooden stock is good with only minor age related marks *damage to the top/rear right hand side* and the initials C.H.C to the right hand side. See page 13 of Hillers Air Rifles for reference. The loading and firing actions work perfectly. The price includes UK delivery for this very rare rifle. AI 610.
