    I’ve now published the site I have been working on and it can be found at Home | airarmsanorak.com

    There’s still a lot to be added over coming months but it would be great to get some feedback and feel free to send anything that would be useful for the site – especially some nice photos of your Air Arms rifles for the gallery.

    I hope you find it of interest and thanks to all that have helped me out with info.

    What an interesting feature. If it were a book, I would probably have bought it, but as it's free it's a bargain. (my Yorkshire upbringing and an eye for a bargain, I do apologize ).

    Joking apart it's fantastic. Well done for spending the time and sharing. It's definitely one for my favourite's list.

    But enough of the sissy guns and do some springer's

    Don't worry my boinger friend - the research is prepared and the pages created for the TX's/Pro Elite & Pro Sport. The side-levers will be covered somewhere down the line as well.

    Hi Steve,

    I have a load of pictures of Air Arms rifles I have owned over the years.

    If you would like them for your site pm me with your e-mail address and I will forward them on to you.

    Another thing you could do is create a new email address and put a .jpg of the address in your contact page. This will allow bona fide readers to email you their photos by reading and typing in the address but stops web crawler bots picking up the address for spam.
    I use my Mac screen scraper function to make the. jpg but theres lots of ways.

    You boinger fans will be pleased to hear I've now added 2 new pages covering the numerous Air Arms side-levers. One page covers the period from 1982 to 1985 and the other 1985-1991.

    Their are also quite a few new photo in the gallery.

    I could still do with some nice Air Arms side-levers photos if anyone can help.

    Very nice work! I had a Mistral AL .22 back in 1985 or early 86. Nice gun but a year or so later I got a 77K in .177 and never looked back. I think I might have traded the Mistral for a decent scope for my 77. I do miss it these days though. It shot pretty nicely but the mag system was, as you’ve written, a bit finicky. Complete rubbish with Wasps; jammed all the time. Fed best with Superdomes, but the fact it was so fussy was always in your head so you didn’t trust it to feed. As a result in my experience at least it wasn’t much faster than single loading.

    Yes, I too, would like a Khamsin!

    Thanks for the suggestion - I'll look into it as you are quite right that I could do with an easy way of getting photos to me.

    It's good to hear you found the site useful.

    I may be in touch Steve - I was speaking with a guy yesterday who is selling a couple. I'm hoping to get some photos today.

    Yep, the 77 is a fantastic rifle. IMO, the TX was designed to compete with it - which it does extremely well!
