    A few Air Arms shooters were treated with a guided tour of Air Arms on Monday. What a great place of British Engineering and to see the work involved makes you appreciate what really goes into making a rifle. A very enjoyable visit.......Thanks Air Arms :)

    Thanks Superbowl. Great photos. I really enjoyed watching your photos and to see all the familiar looking parts in various stages of production.

    Fantastic pics Paul!
    It was a very interesting visit which I think surprised us all. The fact that everything is made, to extremely high standards, at Air Arms (baring basics like O rings) was an eye opener!!
    Claire and the two Alan's did us proud. I am honoured to shoot for the team.:)

    Excellent pics Paul - as you say an eye opener to realize that pretty much all of the rifle is made just down the road from where I live (as opposed to assembled out of boxes of components)!
    Thanks to Claire and both the Alans and their enthusiasm!
