Here's the one I've been shooting the most, lately.

September 15, 2013, 11:41 PM
What kind is that? Assuming it's an air gun, it seems to be a very spot-on replica of a 1911!

September 16, 2013, 12:30 PM
That's a Tokyo Marui 1911MEU Airsoft model. I use it for backyard training.

Great call on adding an air gun forum! I don't have a picture on me, but here is a link to a gun I just received this weekend. It has semi-auto, 3 round and 6 round bursts. I've been having a blast with it! The only downside is that I blow through CO2 like crazy!!

September 16, 2013, 03:48 PM
Ranger, that looks like full auto I could afford!

Glad to see an airgun thread here. Here are my 2 latest builds. Souped up Crosman 2300"s.

Rcmodel- it amazes me that we have so similar tastes... I have been into RC and guns since the seventies. I see you often respond with similar results to mine on many subjects... although you have been even more experienced consistently over the years it seems.

I do find a lot of RC guys also are gun guys of some type...

Those Tempest air pistols are the stuff of legend.

Cool just noticed this was a new forum. Though i'm sure many gun owners may scoff at "airsoft" guns, like it or not I'm a frequent collector and player. Now I am getting into the more realistic gas blowback rifles which might finally get the mainstream gun owner crowd interested again. I think they will be more challenging during airsoft games, plus a way to train in my more urban setting for the day when I start owning centerfire rifles.

I will try to get some pictures up soon, got some pretty BA stuff so far but am still working on selling my old battery powered rifles to buy more magazines.

September 18, 2013, 11:34 PM
Tallpaul, are those Weihrauchs and FWB124s?

September 19, 2013, 12:14 AM
I bought this Beeman R7 (HW 30) over 30 years ago for $159. I still have it and was shooting it yesterday to check the zero with some of those lead-free Gamo pellets. It did not care for those Gamo's, but it will still shoot one ragged hole, at 30' all day, with lead wadcutters.

I used it to dispatch a couple of rogue rabbits that were enjoying my pea patch too much this summer.

I figure it has had ~10,000 pellets put through it, so I was thinking of getting a tune-up kit for it next year.

BTW, this sub-forum was a great idea. I am looking forward to browsing about to see what folks are using these days.

Here's Mine :)

On the left is my Remington Airmaster 77 (best airgun for the price, its a copy of the Crosman Classic 2100) and on the right is my Crosman Pumpmaster (Transitional Style in between the fake wood and the redesign of the stock)

I love my Airmaster for its consistently tight groups at 40 feet (i'm talking under half an inch from a rest! :)) and I like the Pumpaster for its intuitive 5 round pellet clip (It's what I would use for dispatching rodents)

Not shown in this picture but I have the Airmaster rigged with the scope it came with and I have a BSA laser sight on the Pumpmaster

My Beeman R7 named "Ellie".

Here's an old Sheridan Silver Streak. The stock has been refinished in times past, and not too long ago, I had to rework the internals when it stopped holding air.

A Beeman P1--fun shooter.

Tallpaul, are those Weihrauchs and FWB124s?

the top set of rifles are all HW's or Weihrauchs... vintage hw 50's and a HW55 with an r7 on top...

I am a sucker for old HW and fwb's ... Ya mention the fwb 124- I have three 124D or deluxes and always wanted a FWB match gun so I got a FWB 601 here :p

I have more airguns and like a variety of them I have been a user and lover of quality airguns for many years from .177 to .50 cal

second picture is a FWB model 80, a gamo compact and a IZZY 46m

the last gun is my Benjiman marauder PCP in .22

September 19, 2013, 10:49 PM
Love it. Have a Winchester 435 from 1970, a Diana panther 34, a Benjamin from my jr. High days (50's), and a crosman 22 and a Sheridan blue streak. Penetration tests in modeling clay give the edge to the Sheridan and the rws(Diana). Game tests favor the Sheridan and the Bennie. If it goes "bang" or "twang", I'm all for it. 60 years shooting and going strong.

September 20, 2013, 04:21 PM
There are several kits for thr HW 30/R-&, One being the Jim Maccari Kit and another is the Vortec Syatem. Both are top quality to nme just 2 tunes.
There are several top tuners who do thr rifles and they come out great1
I have a .177 HW 30S whi am crazy ov3er! Super accurate and near recoiless!

I have a bunch of airguns but not too many pics of them.

Well I have several rifles and pistols but with the exception of my IZH46m (which is a FANTASTIC pistol) these three are far and away my favorites. They are three of my favorite pistols period be they powder burners or not.

September 25, 2013, 07:55 AM
Great thread. :)

Here's my HW55:

And here's one of the 1st targets I shot with it. Gawd, I love that gun! :)

September 25, 2013, 10:27 AM
MrBorland, that is a georgeous tyrolean HW55

Makes my plain jane 55 sad lookin in comparison!

They are very nice target,plinking guns and while not super match in accuraccy they will perform well enough to learn a lot!

September 25, 2013, 02:10 PM

Thanks. I stumbled on it in a LGS, being sold on consignment. Lucky for me, anything with aperture sights tends to sit on racks, it seems. The sights initially caught my eye, the stock made it love at first sight, and the perfect cheekweld sealed the deal.

They are very nice target,plinking guns and while not super match in accuraccy they will perform well enough to learn a lot!

Yep - I've never owned a true match grade air rifle, but this HW55 has a dream trigger and far outshoots me (factory target below), so it's got plenty to teach me.

September 25, 2013, 03:41 PM
Nice rifle! I too have a 30S and love it! I have a Williams Peep on it and it's a pure Tackdriver! They are probablly the best GP airrifle on the market!
I waited far too long to get mine. I wish I'd have bought one when they first came out!
Yhey are worthy of SERIOUS attention!]

September 25, 2013, 04:02 PM
Simply devine!
A beautifull example of what's probably the finest target rifle ever made!
My 55 S looks so plain by comparison but is loved nonethell.
I got mine through a friend and from a German Shooting Club, I replaced the mainspring with a HW Champ mainspring. giving it approximately the same velocity as JM's Indoor Plinkers kit. Mine does 580fps and is superbly accurate, I decided to scope mine (old eyes) with a fixed 4X with A/O and fast Focus. the scope allows pinpoint shooting eveb as poorly as I shoot
The best part about the 55 is that is very simple to work on for things like mainsprings. you don't even need a spring compressor! The design is straightforward and the trigget is the best ever!
Please enjoy tour fine specimen!

September 26, 2013, 07:51 AM
Here is a photo of my old Benjamin 342 that I believe is Nickel Plated.
Still works and shoots great. Holds air like she was brand new.

September 26, 2013, 11:39 AM
That reminds me of my .22 Crossman that I used as a kid.

I grew up surrounded by orchards. The orchardist neighbor paid me a nickel for every starling I shot when the cherries were getting ripe.

I made good money, for an 8 year old in the early 1960's with that Crossman. Kept me in pellets, plastic models, and black licorice during the cherry season. :)

I lost track of that rifle when I went into the US Army.

October 3, 2013, 08:33 AM
Those Tempest air pistols are the stuff of legend.
I bought a Webley Tempest (Beeman import) in the late 80's, and it still looks, and works like new. It is a blast to shoot. I also bought a Beeman P1 "Magnum" at the time which is a bit more powerful, and a bit more of a precision shooter, but also a lot more expensive. I find shooting the Tempest is more fun, and the accuracy is very good if I do my part.

You can still buy the Webley Tempest, but they are now made in Turkey, not England, but they get good reviews. ( (

October 4, 2013, 10:35 AM
This is my old Beeman R-1 with a Beeman 4x Blue Ribbon scope: (

October 9, 2013, 10:42 PM
ZVP, which Williams peep fits the HW30, and where can I get it? I'd love to put a peep on my HW30S.

The Drozd is loads of fun. I have one of the yellow/black ones.

Tallpaul, I've been itching for an Izzy 46M. I only hear great things about them.
Also, I was going to ask you what caliber your Mrod is.
I see yours is .22, as is mine.
My Mrod is the main reason I don't shoot my magnum springers much anymore.
It's a great hunting airgun.

I need to get my SCUBA tank refilled, so I can shoot my Sam Yang 909 some more.
.45 caliber air gun is lots of fun.

October 10, 2013, 07:05 AM
Jaymo- I have .177 and a .22 marauder as well as a .22 marauder pistol...

The izzy is shot more than my other air pistols and was acquired before they were over 300.00... should have bought three :)

I have two compressors I use to fill the guns and tanks- the first I actively looked for- the second is newer n better n fell into my lap!

October 12, 2013, 11:51 PM
Here is my new to me Daisy 853 from the CMP. It is quite accurate with Walmart daisy pellets. I cant wait to try some match pellets. The top left group is 5 shots at 10m on a regulation ISSF 10m Target ( (

October 18, 2013, 12:26 PM
Nice collection Paul!
I aee by the models that you are an accuracy addic, good for you!
I have my preferences also but I also get into soft shooters and have several of thosetoo.
They;re a real addiction and there seems to be no cure.
Enjoy shootingQ

No bipod on mine and a red dot optic.
I also have a number of air pistols but no pictures... An FWB CO2 match pistol. A Benjamin EB-22 and a. .22 Marauder, a IZH- 43.

October 21, 2013, 05:09 AM
Oh good, can you explain what the third barrel is for? I've seen those things before, always wondered about that.

October 21, 2013, 07:32 AM
Oh good, can you explain what the third barrel is for? I've seen those things before, always wondered about that.

those are not barrels... the two cylinders under the barrel are air cylinders.... the second air cylinder is to add air for extra shots...

October 21, 2013, 08:22 AM
Ok, didn't realize it had a second cylinder. I knew that it was a barrel and an air cylinder, not another barrel, I was just using that term because it was simpler.

This thread started me thinking about guns that are in the back of the closet.
Forgotten guns..not because any were bad shooters, just moved on to other things.
No pics.
There is a side cocking .177 IZH air rifle with an adjustable stock.
Years ago - a break barrel .177 spring gun from China. My sons used the heck out of it.
Also, have a Gamo air "shotgun", break barrel, that shoots #9 or smaller shot out of little reloadable .22 cal hulls. Good for hunting chipmunks at close range (if you, for some strange reason, ever want to hunt chipmunks at close range). It also uses a chamber insert that allows for .22 is surprisingly accurate with that insert....we can readily hit a 2-3 inch target a 25 yards shooting offhand.
Some years ago, I bought a little Daisy lever BB gun for wing shooting practice - took the sights off, cut proper length stock out of some scrap wood and started adding weights to the stock and under the barrel to bring the weight up to near seven pounds. Great little gun to teach mounting and pointing.
Last year I picked up a Umarex BB machine gun, single shots and bursts. Great fun for the kids (and me, too.)

February 9, 2014, 08:08 PM
I intended this to be a low-cost side hobby to firearms when I started during the summer. Maybe a single rifle and pistol, but that never works. (

February 9, 2014, 09:34 PM
Here is my BSA Lightning GRT.

February 9, 2014, 10:25 PM
Gamo "survival rifle", a 25-round autoloading repeater purchased in around 1986, and Gamo PT-85 "Blowback" repeater, purchased last week (haven't even shot that one yet.)

I also have a Crosman 1377 from the mid-eighties, too, just not handy for the picture. I also have the optional shoulder stock for it.

(Sorry about the picture quality. Saw this thread, and ran to get a quick pic right away!)

1985 Beeman (Webley) Hurricane, Baikal MP-46M, Daisy Avanti 753 with homemade stock spacer, 1979 Walther LGR Match.

The stocks on the Baikal and the Walther are fantastic.

February 12, 2014, 04:23 PM
The latest addition to the 10 meter basement range. Bought to compete in local AP 60 competitions and to practice NRA Conventional Pistol (Bullseye) Timed and Rapid Fire. It's like driving a Porsche in the mountains.

February 12, 2014, 04:23 PM
Rink makes some fantastic grips don't they?

February 12, 2014, 04:29 PM
Ms. Cleo has nothing on Thomas Rink. I didn't know what exactly to do with the protective lumber the Baikal shipped with so I took a chance and sent my hand dimensions to Rink, and damned if he didn't get it perfect. The Steyr will wear another Rink soon since the grip isn't quite right, even after some discreet fiddling.

February 12, 2014, 04:32 PM
The only grips I've had better are Dick Horton's custom grips (made here in the USA!), which are both a work of art and functionality.

A beautiful pair of pistols. I'm getting by with my old faithful Daisy 747 pistol, which is a great beginner's target air pistol. Its still probably more accurate than I am.

I really itch to get a real competition grade 10M pistol like one of yours, but I just can't seem to justify $500 to over $1000 for a pistol I'll probably only ever shoot in my own basement. :rolleyes:

Tallpaul, I have an absolutely mint 124D (safe queen and I have little interest in airguns anymore). I have shot the thing about 100 times over the last thirty years - just sits in the safe - it is so pristine that I defy anyone to consider the condition other than new. With that said, where would you suggest I post it for sale and what would you ask for it? I thought about selling it some time ago but pulled the idea and kept it. No box but original ppwk and such - gun is absolutely pristine. Thanks for your help.

Not as 'high-brow' as some of the others posted here, but this was the first air rifle I ever bought - a 14th birthday present to myself. A Crosman *A*I*R*17*:

Just recently got it out of storage and cleaned her up. The magazine contained some items:

1 P38 can opener - never know when you're going to be hungry and happen across some stray C rations...
2 metal clips, like those you'd find on a duffle bag strap - ???
1 Quarter, circa 1977 - to call home I imagine (at least there were phone booths back then)
1 receipt - purchased in 1988 from Kmart for the grand sum of $39.97 + tax
all wrapped in a kleenex (to prevent rattling), and starting to rust.

Apparently I wasn't much of a 'prepper' at 14.

I also have a chinese B3-1, but nobody wants to see that POS.

April 4, 2014, 08:10 PM
I have no pictures but I have a Remmy 77 Air Rifle and a Crossman air pistol that you pump up.
