Does anyone on here own one?

I've lusted after one for years, I couldn't have been much more than 10 or 12, my neighbour had spilt up from her old man and showed me he's collection of air guns, there was some sort of springer with a scope on, a pistol along with 3 or 4 others but it was the Stutzen what grabbed me.

She wanted £300 for the lot Inc the cabinet they were in, unfortunately at that age no one would lend me £300 😂.

I have flirted with buying one as recently as last year, had my eye on a few on freeads before they decided they didn't like our kind anymore. 

I don't plan on hunting with it, more of a back garden plinker. Even if you lot say there rubbish I'll probably still end up with one 😂.

They are stunning looking tools but I think it's the rarity rather than the capability that makes them desirable nowadays - if you compare one to ,say, the HW80 (available around the same time) then I believe that the shortcomings would be apparent. The true Stutzen (BSA) has the tap loading system and not the rotary breach so don't get fooled into buying the "pretender" - if you can find one with open sights fitted, sell your soul, Car and then Wife to buy it.

Thanks for your reply @bruno22rf, yeah I'm not expecting big performance, I'll be happy to take it out and punch some paper or a few tin cans in the garden. I'll remember that regarding the loading system, cheers 👍.

Hopefully I won't have to part with too much, been a rough 10 months or so and I'm looking forward to treating myself.

I’ve got one.... my dad brought it for me as a present about 25 years ago. Its in the original box with all original paper work I believe ... I’ll have to dig it out and put it on here! Had almost forgotten about it till I saw this!

You've posted it on PW now so we'll hold you to that lol.

Look forward to seeing it 👍

To my eye, lovely looking things but in all honesty this one didn't shoot particularly well both accuracy and power so i let it go.They fetch very good money!

Not had it out in over a decade I’d imagine! Put a pellet through it and seemed very pokey still. I’ll have to put it over the croney see what it’s still at. It used to be very accurate.... I’ll let you know what it’s like tomorrow once I’ve got it set up!

Sws, that's very nice indeed. Boxed and looks like you've got the paperwork as well. I noticed it's a .177  which i think i'm right in saying is pretty rare for a Stutz.   

Looking forward to hearing how she shoots!

It’s not always been in the box! Was a present from my dad when I was about 14. Used it all the time back then. Must have been put away well over 20 years ago. To be fair there are slight dinks in the stock and very light pin head size rust patches on barrel. I’ll have to find someone who can touch it up!

From what I read last night the .177 is pretty rare, along with the later .25 

From some reason I get the feeling the one I looked at all those years ago was a .25

I have a stock for one that I was going to graft onto a mk6 but have never found one. A mk5 will work but has the wrong cocking lever and would have to cut the stock to fit and never had the spuds to actually do it!
