    I was never into air rifles until I came across these Haenels. The Model 33 is pre war but they both have the same action. First time shooting these BB guns I couldn't believe how powerful and accurate they were, especially considering their age. 1B3F0B18-B334-4701-9359-CAEC950A20C2.jpeg 2CAF8041-FE3A-4CD2-9EB3-4BFE7736C2E0.jpeg 1B3F0B18-B334-4701-9359-CAEC950A20C2.jpeg 2CAF8041-FE3A-4CD2-9EB3-4BFE7736C2E0.jpeg B2BBB7B4-2695-441C-89C7-F4360952A180.jpeg

    Does the bolt compress the air? The look on those is incredibly clean.

    Those are incredible.. Very very clean to book..

    How hard is it to work that cocking handle??? Do you have to replace any rubber gaskets as it ages???

    On the newer 310 it is very hard to work the lever, I have to should the rifle to do so. On the Model 33 it's much easier and yet they both seen equally powerful. The first time I shot the 310 I put 2 cardboard boxes together and from about 20 feet it went thru them and kept going. A YouTuber named ISOG has a good video on these. The Model 33 was the most popular air rifle used by German youth organizations in the 1930s. It's amazing the leather seals on my Model 33 are still playable and working properly. 657B140A-746F-4172-A823-E12FADE4DC53.jpeg 89FD2ED9-F146-4620-A672-23F046C3E478.jpeg 9D5AB58E-09ED-4831-BE06-9D732FD84C37.jpeg

    Go to YouTube and write in Haenel 310, there are a few good videos on these.

    Maybe they are designed to step on the lever using the body weight. Hope they have anti beartrap!
