The Milbro Cub “automatic” air pistol is actually a French design that was manufactured by Pneuma-Tir as the “PNEUMA-TIR 500” from the mid 1940s, perhaps 1946, to sometime in the 1980s. That’s quite an impressive production run! Mind you, I’m not so sure that the British Milbro Cub was produced for as long as the French PNEUMA-TIR 500.

A good year ago I wrote a short article about the J.G. Anschütz Dolla MKII. I mentioned in that article that the Dolla MKII had also been imported to the United States and sold as the “Keenfire”.

Of course it was also an opportunity to fully strip one down and write a service guide for anyone else that may need to repair or service their vintage BSA Scorpion.

A special case for a special air pistol! Considering the cost of these air pistols, you would expect Weihrauch to supply them with a custom foam lined case. Instead they are shipped in a cardboard box. Luckily, the owner of this air pistol stumbled across the custom foam lined cases on this website and requested one for this air pistol.
