« on: July 31, 2021, 09:55:38 AM »
Ampell Arco 1 plink-n-whiz co2 pistol, made by Shakespeare fishing reels. They where made in 1975 with three models a .177 pellet, a .22 pellet and the bb repeater in this video. "The gun not to have been a commercial success and Ampell Playtime Products went out of business in late 1975. Consequently they are quite rare, particularly in the UK.

A very close replica to the Thompson Contender. ,

I have a Hill EC-3000 compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your tank as a courtesy (4,250 PSI limit).
