Hi guys, I've had some inquiry into the Snowpeak B5-1 in 22 caliber. It has a rail on top for a scope.
Any interest in these guns? I'd be ordering 5 of them and they'd be selling for $200-210 shipped, depending on duties paid.

These are uncontrolled firearms but to purchase the buyer must be at least 18 years old.

These are single shot side lever air rifles with a folding stock. They are rated at 400fps with 16gr pellets, and sounds like most are faster than advertised, so I'll probably have to get one checked to make sure they are below 500fps. Anyone who has one, feel free to comment or share.
Thanks
Wes

=) ok!
It says it is a hardwood stock on the Snowpeak site and has a manual safety. The version I'd be ordering has had a rail added for mounting scopes.

Hi Guys, please pm or post here if you are interested in this rifle, otherwise I'll have to hold off on ordering. I forgot to mention these are coming from the US, so would be available in a couple weeks.
Thanks
Wes

You know I really doubt it. I've had so much trouble getting these guns as is reclassified. I don't want to jeapordize anything if I can help it. Airgunsource or companies like that that are well known and have dealt a lot with the border agents would probably have the best chance of getting something like that approved, I'm thinking.
Thanks for asking! We are supposed to be getting the Snowpeak m16 in under the Diana name though and also the Diana bandit pcp repeating pistol and a detuned Diana Stormrider pcp as well. Should be fun!

Diana Bandit and the Snowpeak m16.. interesting. What calibers will you be getting the m16 in? It looks like they are available in .177 to .25

The Diana distributor for Canada has ordered them and I haven't heard those details quite yet. Hopefully all three calibers =)
