    Out of interest has anyone else got a Ballistic pendulum, would be used to measure the energy output of your rifle using a mechanical device not electric.

    i have one of these in the loft, i wonder if its worth anything.

    If it is the cardew one . i would have thought it was worth something to a collector . but i would not like to hazard a guess as to how much ??? HOLLY

    I was trawling the interweb recently looking for interesting old air-rifles and found a webpage from "Hartleys Auctioneers". They had a Cardew ballistic pendulum for sale with all it's bits and in it's original box. It was estimated to be worth between £50 to £100 pounds but eventually sold for just £30.
