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!

This is the very rare Lincoln Jeffries “Scout”. It’s a pop-out pistol that was manufactured between c. 1922 and 1926 during the dawn of the British airgun revolution. It was available either blued or nickel-plated. Many had no markings other than on the grip whereas a few were stamped “LINCOLN JEFFRIES JUNR 120 STEELHOUSE LANE BIRMINGHAM” on the front edge of the grip frame.

Weihrauch HW45 – Trigger Adjustment

Last week, I acquired another, yes, a fourth HW45 air pistol. “Four!” you say? Yeah, I must be a magnet for them. I’ll go into my reasons in another post. Anyway, whilst I had all four together I checked them over for variations and chronographed each of them to see how they compared.

Immediately I noticed that each trigger was configured differently. Probably as they were all pre-owned pistols, each owner had fiddled with the trigger adjustments. Well those tiny grub screws in the trigger blade are very tempting. Continue reading “Weihrauch HW45 – Trigger Adjustment”
