Vintage Air Pistols
« on: March 18, 2018, 04:36:54 PM »
I shoot modern PCP's and spring powered air rifles , but get a kick out of the older spring and CO2 powered pistols. Here are a few from my collection. First , a Hy-Score 800. A Webley Hurricane , and a Crosman 600 and Crosman 150. All fun ! Perhaps I will post more later , but the resizer is a hazzle !

Just some of the herd . I will show more later. Love these pups !  I surrendered a vast collection of fly fishing reels to buy these and others. Seamasters , Fin-Nors , Hardy's , and more. Hobby's change , and life moves forward !

OK , getting better at the resizing game. These are some more vintage pistols. A RWS P5 Magnum , The Smith and Wesson 78G , and 79G. The last is a new model from the Crosman Custom Shop. If you do your part , it will put out some tight groups.

It is a Crosman Mk 1 , from the mid 1970's.

The black beauty Diana P5 Magnum is no more. At least in my stable. I sold it and bought a Diana/RWS LP8 pistol. Faster , and just as accurate. A better safety , the 5G Mag is a little tricky , where as the LP8 is ambidextrous and easy to let on and off.

I have a Beeman 800 (diana 6G) recoilless springer target pistol. Fun to shoot, but it could use a little professional adjustment for the trigger travel, I think. 

One day I'm going to find me a nice S&W 78G and latch onto it. About 30 years ago I had the Daisy branded one in .177, and let it get away from me.  Those are great guns!
