  7. Hi, I'm looking for a rear sight for my Sharp Victory. I can part exchange for a BSA .25" pcp or springer barrel, an Ace rear sight, or original Innova paperwork. It's a long shot, but who knows! Kind regards, Louis
  8. Very nice! Lovely 147 you've got there. A good shooter and another excellent Rudy Merz design. Nice stock also.

  10. Hi, I'm looking for an umodded Sharp Innova MkII in .177, with the original butt plate. Many thanks! Louis
  11. Hi, has anyone one here ever had or shot a Daystate Sportman Mk1? This is a very rare Daystate pump gun from the early eighties, that was based on the Sheridan Streak. Apparently Daystate's founder loved the Streak and decided to make a better and sturdier version (even though most Streak's are still going strong after several decades!). Daystate was making tranquilliser guns first, this was one of their first pellet guns. The more I read about it, the more I fall in love with it... Dangerous stuff! Cheers, Louis This one was sold in the US in 2013. It seems to be missing the aperture sight
  12. Hi, I'm looking for a Daystate Sportsman Mk1. The multipump pneumatic from the eighties. A rare beast! A stock for the gun would be great as well, as my friend has an action but no stock. Who knows! Many thanks, Louis
  13. Hi, I'm looking for a Sharp pellet tub. They came with a green, orange or blue lid. Would be fantastic to find one! Cheers, Louis
  14. Hi, I've just finished downsizing my airgun collection from about 45 to 14. It feels really good. Now I can focus more on the ones I really love. This means: getting all the stuff that they came with, starting with paperwork (check), boxes (work in progress) and pellet containers (with my highest goal being: finding a Sharp pellet container from Japan!). Modern airguns usually come in a nondescript box, but back in the days the manufacturers put some nice attention in their boxes. Just makes me happy to look at them... Anyone else on here with a box fetish? 😆 Cheers, Louis
