  1. Yes. there are some real dogs about from that era, but would say this has had very little use. its still got its original screws, not molested much, (usually caused by wrong size/type screwdriver.) its smooth cocking, very positive sear sound engagement. it shoots at about 10 ft/lb, very crisp trigger let of not HW record but adequate for its age. have shot literally 1000s of rabbits with one in the early 50s before mixie came. its a time capsule to when we were a manufacturing nation of quality items..πŸ‘πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§
  2. Mines pre war in .22, my favourite calibre😊
  3. No. 9mm are 3 bore. 22 are smaller. 1 bore smaller still. can almost get into a 177 barrel
  4. Lost mine in that bad winter about 8/9 years ago. we knew it was running around the farm buildings as feet marks in snow. actualy caught it in a snare, (springer for rats) round it's body, it was still fine and settled back into cage routine ok, this by the way was AWOL 3 weeks.
  5. Yes. they are garden gun but I havnt seen a 1 bore gun to fire them. These would not fire in the .22 garden gun
  6. Just found a box full of these, number 1 bore shot cartridges.
  7. Will dig around, have the old style crimpers, some charge bars etc etc etc. πŸ‘πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§
