Welcome to Jimmie Dee’s Airguns new blog page!

Originally hosted on Facebook, we have decided to migrate to our own independent website. With our own website we will have much more control over the formatting of articles as well as the ability to add menu links for every pistol and rifle that we add. This alone is a huge advantage over what Facebook has to offer and will be of significant benefit to our readers.

But don’t worry, we intend to keep our Facebook page and post regular updates from here to there. So you will still receive updates directly to your newsfeed as usual except that when you click on them, they will open in your browser instead of Facebook.

Please bear with us whilst we migrate our articles, guides and photographs across to our new platform.

Happy shooting!

Fake or Authentic?

Recently [this article was first published on November 23rd, 2016] on the airgunbbs.com, a group of keen collectors were discussing a 1924 “double spring clip” Webley and Scott Mark I 1st series air pistol that had appeared at an auction. The discussion centered around whether the pistol in the auction was authentic.

How to Make a Reproduction Box Lid

Back in December of 2015, I bought a Crosman 451. It’s a 1969/70 CO2 .22 Colt 45 replica with semi-auto style blow-back action. I had actually been given one by my father some years earlier and had fallen deeply in love with these rare vintage air pistols ever since. However, as with many vintage air pistols, the one my father bought was without its box. I purchased my own 451 from a Canadian dealer and had it shipped to England. This one was complete with its box except, rather oddly, it didn’t have a lid. I was fairly confident that someday I would be able to make a lid to complete the package. Nearly two years later I have finally achieved my goal! Continue reading “How to Make a Reproduction Box Lid”

An Eisenwerke Gaggenau MF, or is it?

In this article I will try to unravel the identity of a mysterious new pistol recently acquired for Jimmie Dee’s collection. At first appearance, one could be mistakenly drawn to the conclusion that it is a Daredevil Dinkum, a later copy of Michael Flürscheim’s MF air pistol. However, as we shall discover together, a close detailed inspection throws much doubt about its identity…. Continue reading “An Eisenwerke Gaggenau MF, or is it?”
