This a post I've thought about doing for a while but Plinkercases's recent post "I am spineless....... anyone else?" got me motivated. I find the buying / selling process quite fun and like trying out new (new to me at least) guns so turning over airguns is also fun. Amongst these ones that have gone onto new owners there might only be 2 or 3 that I had any second thoughts about. It also helps that I really, really enjoy my current collection.

So here goes! :D

I found this 953 on Craigslist in Toronto. It was the first air rifle I bought as an adult and got me back into the shooting sports after many years away. So I guess in some ways it actually led to all the air gun madness that has followed!!!
Image

Walther cp88 competition, nickel
Image


Shakespeare Acro 1- 22 cal. , all metal (yes even the grip!) Made in Canada!!
Image

Alphaproj pistol, bulk fill or 12g Co2, :? maybe some mild regret on this one but I think selling it helped me pay for one of my awesome Weihrauch rifle so there's that! :D
Image

Baikal MP-654K Makarov , fun little BB shooter, this one hit hard!!
Image


Croman 101, the second one I bought but the first one I sold.
Image
Beretta Px4 Storm, one of my first air pistols
Image

Benjamin Classic .22, this was one had been "Bubba'ed", but I was able to do a trade (yes, I did the full disclosure, photos and all) with a long standing CAF member for a very nice Gamo G 1200 pump action rifle.
Image

Crosman Cr99,Great hard hitting .22 rifle this one passed through the hands of several (many?) CAF members, crossing Canada more than once I believe!
Image

Crosman M1 Carbine , I liked the custom paint job the previous owner had given it.
Image

Drulov DU 10 Eagle .177 , Awesome true semi auto , very accurate target gun, I shoot left handed and the stock was never comfortable for me to use.
Image

Tanfoglio witness 1911, for some reason I can't find my own photo of this one but I know I sold it!!! :lol:
Image

Walther PPK, again a stock photo, This one I never posted online but the buyer who picked up my Crosman 1077 bought it on impulse.
Image

Crosman Mark II , a very recent sale
Image

Crosman 101 in .22, again a very recent sale, the buyer should be getting in a few days. A lovely old classic.
Image

Colt Special Combat
Image

Baikal m46 Very accurate, fantastic trigger, Unlike 99.9 of people who try them I hated this pistol! :shock:
Image

Crosman Trapmaster 1100, one of two that I've owned and then sold, not sure if I have a pic of the other one.
Image

Gamo G1200 pump action Co2 in .177, Crappy photo of a great rifle. I think it still has a home at my buddy Tony's place.
Image

A different M1 Carbine BB shooter by Crosman, funny cast metal (home made?) replacement mag
Image

Crosman Cr622 These are great old pump action guns, I ended up buying another 'cause I missed the rapid fire plinking fun!!
Image

Walther Lever Action, I sold this one because I got a second one that shoots a bit hotter. It was bought be a really nice guy in the West but CanPost mistreated it so badly the rifle was bent (yes BENT!!) so badly the receiver cracked. The buyer was super patient as I collected the insurance for it and refunded his money. Always keep your CanPost receipts!!
Image

A Daisy BB shooter, one of the crappy new ones, not the cool old ones. I bought the scabbard in Mexico, and it was not part of the sale.
Image

Daisy 853c Ya, maybe I might have held onto this one.
Image

Here's that Crosman 1077
Image

Daisy 814 Sporter A one pump, BB and pellet rifle which hit fairly hard. A sort of copy of the Ruger Mini 14
Image

Yunker 4 by IZHMASH Semi auto BB, felt just like the real steel!! (yes, I've shot a real AK) It even field stripped like an AK 74. Major drawback?? the 14lb. trigger pull.
Image


:D :D I think that's all!!! For now!!! :D :D

Hello Helipilot,

I now have the desire for a Crosman 101 rifle because of this thread of yours.

Regards,

Ron

Hi Ron,
I know from your posts you have a love for vintage pistols! The 101s are really nice old rifles and they do come up here for sale from time to time. I just was not getting much use from mine so I was happy to send the most recent one off to a good home.

Cheers :drinkers:
Dave

It's really just any repair or mod that been done carelessly or ineptly. ie "looks like Bubba had a go at this! there's tool marks everywhere and he's used a piece of coat hanger for a trigger!!!"" So a piston plugging job could be a Bubba job if it was done poorly or caused damage to the rifle.

Thanks.

I thought it perhaps was about the "getting more power" crowd.

Yes, there were factory loaded red plastic shot shells, which could also be reloaded with bird shot (you can see some in a bag in my picture) . BUT the shells could also be reloaded with a cotton patch and a .36 cal round ball as a kind of big bore airgun. With the long barrel and a heavy projectile you can get some impressive power. At least one Forum member has taken rabbits with that kind of set up. Mr. Marvin has two Trapmasters for sale on his website now.

Dave how I envy your super selling powers.
And I am glad you never sell anything I don't have or want or you would be feeding my madness.
But since you mentioned Marvin and the trap master I must now go look.......... damn you.
