|This rifle was aquired as a first air rifle back
in probably 1962 and was pre-owned. It is somewhat
of a classic and altho well deserving of a major
clean-up and re blue, is still very functional.
A new spring would probably not go amiss however.
The biggest plus on this gun is .... under lever
cocking and, tap loading. A very good combination
altogether. The cocking lever under the barrel was
quite hard work but technique saw to that being
eased. Being then able to rotate the ''tap'' 90º
to insert a pellet and then close - made for an
easy loading job and, a very good air seal.
Another big plus was the Parker Hale aperture site
unit which has standard click adjustments - this
made for a very accurate setting up and it was perhaps
the most accurate of all the air weapons owned and
shot. Many others were tried but history has seen
