Here are two rare boxes of “Improved” Bull Dog pellets. Aren’t they amazing? You don’t see airgun products like this anymore with such patriotism emblazoned with a British bulldog and the Union Jack.
I think they date from the 1930s and were manufactured and sold by the famous Frank Clarke. The word “improved” makes me wonder if there was a previous version of these pellets. Take a close look at the marketing hype with statements such as “maximum accuracy” and “famous the world over”. They could get away with saying anything in those days!
Did you know that not only did Frank Clarke make and sell airguns but he also invented the automated tea making machine? So next time you see one in your hotel room, whenever that might be, give a little thought to Frank who gave us guns like the Britannia and Warrior air pistols, not forgetting the Webley MKI! Yes, he was instrumental with that famous air pistol too!
Until next time, happy shooting!
