Here’s another recent addition to the collection. A 1973 Series 2 “Suncorite” Webley and Scott Junior air pistol.

Original box, original box of pellets, original spare breech seal with envelope, original sales leaflet and barrel cleaning brush.

Here’s something a bit different for a change. I have had this FB Record Champion for quite some time. It’s what you would call a project pistol as it was non-functional with broken or missing parts. Continue reading “Restoration Project – FB Record Champion – Part 1”
