Milbro “Cub” Automatic Air Pistol (1946 to 1980s)

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.

J.G. Anschütz “Keenfire” (c.1936 to c.1938)

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”. As luck would have it, a fellow collector from the United States contacted me with a boxed Keenfire that he wished to sell. I’m pleased to say that it has now found a new home in Jimmie Dee’s collection. Continue reading “J.G. Anschütz “Keenfire” (c.1936 to c.1938)”

Webley and Scott MKI “Double Spring Clip” Air Pistol (1924)

What can I say! An absolutely fantastic example of one of Webley and Scott’s first air pistols. These air pistols are über rare on their own but this one is a complete package. An original box, an original box of pellets, an original spare breech seal with envelope, an original sales leaflet and a barrel cleaning brush.

Here’s some peculiar targets. I assume they’re German as they came with the Crosman 38T “Target” air pistol from Germany. Very strange, especially the one with the wasps!

Restoration Project – Crosman 38T “Target” – Part 1

A new pistol for the collection arrived from Germany last week. It’s a Crosman 38T “Target” model. The “Target” model is .177 calibre as opposed to the early .22 38T that Crosman produced. It is identical in all ways except externally it has a plastic rear sight and a plastic cylinder. Internally it has an alloy valve body as opposed to the brass valve body of the early model.

Riflescope Setup – Part 3: Rifle and Scope Calibration

Quite often you hear shooters ask “What’s the best range to zero my scope at?”. It’s a perfectly valid question and yet the response can be varied from 25 to 35 yards or “the range at which you will shoot at the most”. Whilst there is nothing wrong with any of those answers, they won’t necessarily help the shooter get the most from their rifle and scope combination and there’s certainly never any mention of magnification.
