    Walther Cpm1 Pistol **sold**

    That's the normal system, all the pubs use CO2 and their suppliers are a good port of call. The home brew suppliers also stock CO2 for their clients. Our club has a CO2 cylinder that we acquired and have replaced via a local pub. Rutty

    Walther Cpm1 Pistol **sold**

    It is a bit more fiddly than compressed air and it is supposed to be somewhat temperature sensitive resulting in velocity fluctuations. The latter is probably true if you are talking extreme and very variable temperatures but in Northern Europe it is unlikely to be apparent. The World Record is still held by a shooter using a CO2 pistol, so I suppose that says something. The attraction of compressed air is its easy availabilty, however CO2 is not difficult to obtain. The main difference in handling the two gases is that whilst the compressed air charge is measured by pressure, CO2 charge is measured by weight (compressed CO2 is of course a liquid). For this reason it is advisable to weigh the CO2 cylinder before and after filling to determine the weight of propellant and have an idea of the number of shots available. The CPM1 manual states that a fully charged cylinder should be sufficient for 180 shots. With the advent of pre-charged compressed air guns, manufacturers quickly changed over and AFAIK there are no bulk CO2 guns currently in production. Hence this pistol is for sale at what I regard as a reasonable price, if it was a compressed air gun in similar condition the asking price would be 20-30% more. When I first started looking at pre-charged pistols CO2 was the norm, but when I got round to buying one compressed air had taken over. I had observed a number of club members with CO2 pistols that they operated without difficulty and I would have had no qualms about owning one, in fact I do have a 5 shot Brno B96. Rutty

    Soviet Tractor Pistol

    I liked the "green" feature of the Izzy. When you had unpacked it from its wooden packing case, you dimantled the box and used the bits to construct the grip Or so I was told Rutty

    It is identical to the first Anschutz I owned, made in 1963 and bought by me in 1964. For those (anyone?) that remember him, Dougie Macgilvray acquired it for me. Rutty

    Junior / Ladies Air Rifle

    The only problem with that John is that 300 bar refill facilities are not all that common. The large dive centres can usually provide 300 bar but your local Diving shop/agent will probably on have a 200 bar compressor. What this means to me; I have an LP300; is a 60 mile round trip to get a 300 bar refill for the tank or 10 minutes and £2.00 on the way to the club to get 200 bar from the local diving company. Apart from that, is the LG30 ambidextrous? If it is it would seem to be an excellent club/junior rifle. Rutty

    Junior / Ladies Air Rifle

    Not sure if you'll find a secondhand one, but have a look at the Hammerli AR50 with the Beech stock. It has the added advantage that it is ambidextrous. Rutty

    I suggest that those making a sale through the "Loot" section might wish to consider making donation. A small note to that effect at the start of each "Loot" thread could serve as a reminder. Rutty
