Apart from making stocks, Antonio at GINB has for a long time had a dream of creating his own air rifle to his own design. And now, finally that dream has become a reality!

It features a regulated all aluminium action and cylinder, bottom fed magazine, and Air Arms barrel.
As Andrea said today about his dad's creation:
"This was one of the 2 prototypes in Italy, he had it sent over here piece by piece, in hope to solve a problem that they couldn't back in Italy.
After a few days in the work shop, he finished the Rifle of his dreams.
Its power is 21Joules, has a 6 shot magazine, The Stock was made to the style that my Dad likes, the F.T stock cannot be done because of the detachable mechanism. He also added a valve for rechargeing at the Fore-end of the Cylinder makeing it look like a Double barrel.
The Rifle is 4kg without Scope this is the only flaw my dad finds in the Rifle. and again The Presure Regulator is good but not to my Dads standard, In Italy they are studying a new tipe of Presure Regulator, which will alter the shape a little.
He tested it at 15meters 20Shots Clamped and its results are in the photo. He also tested it at 30, 50 and 60Meters at the Shooting Ring and it came with amazing results.
It has Single shot version (attached pictures)
He Used barrel of the AA-410 Full Power (Longversion) Just for this one, The Air-cylinder is also Aluminium.
Balance is an important thing my dad looks at, it is very well balanced."
Before you grab your cheque book.... the rifle is only for Antonio's collection to satisfy his desire to make a rifle from scratch. Unfortunately it will not be for sale!!
wow i want one
But I must say I would rather have the shorter stock.
Well if any thing it's accurate
the bolt and breech and mag system very tasty,
grim reaper to the bunny population!!
Very nice, prefer it with the longer stock though.
Looks like the mysterious new Daystate to me..!
The ox is slow, but the earth is patient.
I love it as it is!!
Looks like a full bore, very solid, I would say that is worth the weight sacrifice!
My stock should be winging it's way to me as we speak!.....Once oiled and finished i will post a couple of pics!
Lovely. I especially like the bolt design.
What about him selling the rights to a gun manufacture to make them, if he does not wish to him self.
