They are interesting rifles. It took me a while to fine one. Mine is a single shot trailsman. He also made an 8 shot repeater which had a fixed magazine and one with a buddy bottle. 

Here is the advert

When I googled the name I came across a thread on another forum that mentioned an 8 shot adapter, octopus something I think it said.

Money no object I would definitely have one.

Never heard of that one, looks like an early Leishy 

I stopped buying air gun mags years ago but that stuck in my mind, maybe because it looked so different.

They are fairly simple in operation but interesting designs. I have an M100 in .20 too which is very nice. I'm always on the look out for a CO2 powered Starfire, but they always come up at unrealistic money for me. 

I like them for the same reasons I like the Skan air rifles, they are quirky and push the design envelope. From a time when the UK was coming out with new ideas in air guns.

I always wanted the brocock range, the fox and the safari. 

Here's the fox, can't get much more of a slimmer gun

Agreed - I remember the reviews in the magazines, I'm sure one made the obvious reference to Day of the Jackal with a picture of Edward Fox. I wonder if anyone kept one of these on FAC? Must be rare as a rare thing now.

Was that the one that was more like a stalking rifle? What's it like? Would be great to see some pictures 

It's a great wee gun and been a bit different adds to the attraction
