    .22 Target Air Rifle

    Just found this air rifle today. no name anywhere , no markings at all.

    Bolt action , internal spring . Drop-out plastic magazine , fully adjustable trigger , synthetic stock , very heavy shrouded barrel - approx 30mm over full length. Adjustable butt plate .
    Looks like a full size , centre-fire rifle , but is .22 cal air gun. Never seen one like it .

    Anyone know anything about it ?

    .22 Target Air Rifle

    A couple of observations....

    That is a HS Precision stock

    That Remmy action looks original and untouched, say .222 or .223 or .22 hornet

    It could be used to fire Ramset blanks that push a .22 pellet and that front "spare" mag just holds spare ammo and sits in a blind recess, or that front mag was used to hold tranquilliser darts.

    Where is the large compression spring that leads you to believe its an air assisted rifle?

    The HS Precision PST 013 stock has a bull barrel channel and could easily accomodate a 30 mm bull barrel or over barrel silencer

    Can we have more pictures please, like inside both mag boxes and boltface.

    And a pic of the left hand side of the action where the Remington name is usually rolled into the receiver

    No name or stampings anywhere mate . Pulled it out of the stock and looked everywhere. The spring is inside the "bolt" - you pull it right back then push it home against the spring pressure. Havent worked out how to pull the "bolt" out - it definately isnt a modified rifle bolt , although the handle is a reasonable facsimilie of the Remmy handle

    .22 Target Air Rifle

    A spring inside the bolt would have inadequate energy to push a .22 cal slug down that tube

    Perhaps it's a movie prop for firing blanks ?


    What clues led you to think its an air rifle if you haven't had the bolt out ?

    If you look at pics 5 and 6 , you can see the location of the plastic "magazine " that the pellets go into. The "bolt" as shown in pic 4 extends all the way up to the point at which the mag feeds a pellet up into the breech. There is a brass rod visible at that point inside the chamber area.

    Thats a fair amount of room for an internal spring , and it takes a bit of effort to close and lock the "bolt". When one pulls the trigger the spring fires a shot of air down the barrel. Plus the previous owner stated that it was a BB gun , and thats what I purchased it as.

    Having been caught several times before with firearms that other people have pulled apart and lost bits for - then suckered me into buying - I dont intend removing any parts until I have established make , model , and parts diagram.

    .22 Target Air Rifle

    The gutless spring design has me stumped, and the lack of primary extraction ramp on the rear receiver bridge stops it from being a "custom"

    Until

    I realised it would be ok for plastic pellets

    Its an airsoft rifle


    Go to Evike.com and you can see the extra long bolt and brass pin there, they are made as perfect replicas, sniper rifles etc

    Woohoo

    that might well be it . I actually bought it for the adjustable butt pad so dont feel too bad with my plan to steal that for my Omark target rifle ;-)
