Hi Mel 

What cal is it? I had a .22 as a teen, my first proper airgun and loved it, the .177s never really went over 8-9ftlb where as the .22s were 11ftlb. What's he asking for it? 

i havent got any further than pics yet to be honest , i was offered it by the mate of a mate . i havent got the foggiest idea what its worth , or even if it works. hes selling an old barnet wildcat crossbow as well.

Very accurate little guns tho the trigger is **** the more you pump it. It will probably blow a seal before it gets enough wind in it to kill the elephant these things are renowned for. 

Imo not worth over £50, the custom stock is more desirable and might fetch £60 😂

Barnett wildcat, jez, that's going back a few years. I remember bending bolts with one because the thing would go through 3/4 ply like butter...

Have you met Mel?

I have, and in Dudley too - he never struck me as the sort of chap that ever went in a shower, likely caught outside by a few in the typical Black Country summertime.

Hello, if you get it cheap will you do a refurb mel ?

I've offered £50 for the airgun and Barnet wildcat crossbow and he's accepted it . I'll probably just use them for messing about at the woodland,  so a refurb wouldn't really be worth it.

Your leather sling was posted yesterday Gordon, it should be with you today or tomorrow mate 👍.

Well I got the gun , but couldn't test it until I got home , and when i did test it , it's xxxxxx. It seems to pump up ok , but when I tested it with a pellet , the pellet stayed in the barrel. I'm guessing that a pellet was already lodged in there.

I dont feel any inclination to repair it , so It's free if anyone wants to come and collect it , to either repair , or use for spares. 

Only for someone that will use or repair it though , not to try to sell on.

You should know me better than that dave . The crossbow was the money , not the gun . I also came back with fifty quids worth of free range eggs and horse manure  , and 220 acres of prime woodland deer stalking 😅.

You can't use a crossbow on deer!:lol:

It's perfectly legal to use a crossbow on deer , just as long as nobody is watching 😅.

The crossbow is for targets and fun at the woodland for visiting guests,  along with , longbow ,catapults, airguns , and axe throwing.

 

Disclaimer for the simple minded.

Crossbow is most definitely not legal for deer 👍.

Well done mel.

Thankyou very much chief.

I've been hoping for the stalking for a very long time ,  the land joins onto a 500 acre dairy farm that I've been shooting for over 20 years . The guy has never allowed any shooting in his block of woodland until yesterday , hes had massive amounts of work done in there , and can now see the wildlife 😊,I've been asked to thin out the deer and squirrels 😊
