I recently stumbled upon a small inventory of NOS BSA airgun parts from the early 1970s. These parts are for the Mercury/Airsporter rifles, the Meteor rifle, and the Scorpion pistol. I expect to have them all catalogued in the form of an MS Excel workbook file within the next day or two. I still have a few part numbers that require verification, and pricing, but this should be done within the aforementioned time frame.

The parts will be listed by their BSA part numbers, and will also have the Ithaca part numbers listed for cross reference.

Anyone interested in receiving a catalogue of these parts, please e-mail me, at "webleyguy(at)gmail.com" and I will send the file out as soon as it is complete.


Note to the mods: I posted this here, instead of in the for sale section because it will be on a long term basis, and I figured it would be less hassle than having to regularly bump it to the top to keep it active. Appreciate your understanding.

Please note Len's post was from Sat Jun 04, 2011. But, yes, Len is still very active in the airgun community and has a large clientele including myself.

Is he also the gentleman who wrote the excellent article on the Walther LGR air rifle:

I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news but I have just been made aware that Len is no longer taking in any new airgun repair work due to a medical issue. Sad news indeed.
