Nice little Gem pattern for sale. Same type as shown on page 125 of Dennis Hiller's Collectors Guide to Air Rifles (4Th Ed) Attributed to Langenhan with a date from 1890-1920, although this is an early example with the serial number 174 stamped into the breech (Hiller mentions 3 others -492, 2540, 8417). Good working condition with tight barrel lock-up, new breech seal and mainspring. The guns retains a lot of its original nickel plating to the air chamber and faded bluing to the barrel. the stock has been repaired in the past. Barrel is straight with a clean bore. Nice little gun, cocks smoothly and fires with moderate power. Would like £90 including postage please (it'll cost about £10 to post)SOLD
Some more info from the Gem Forum on these types of Gem.
Pics are rubbish but are just to give an idea, I'll take some more tomorrow in better light.
Thanks for looking,

Bump and a price drop, £90 all in, inc postage...not much for an usual and rarely seen Gem pattern type that is around 120 years old and retains a lot of its original finish!...if I wasn't skint I'de buy it myself!
