as above guys
I remember Saxby Palmer 'making' them in the 80s and wanting one really badly!
Seen pics of a co2 converted one, used 12g co2 capsules/powerlets, all the 'gubbins' was housed in the magazine, if I remember correctly.
...Saxby and Palmer conversions and the subsequent Brocock conversions used a larger version of the TAC cartridge and required the "Nato" "pellet" to cycle properly. As did the Parker Hale Midlands (?) conversions. All but the last few had Steve Harper brass barrel liners and this coupled with the hard alloy of the "Nato" used to make me cringe on the longevity front.
Great fun but mostly chocolate teapots
something like this its not a brocock either
cybergun, ak 47 izhmash factory they have been doing things like this .
it seems to be legal . i mean its not a brocock , and it is an airrifle ??
Hi,that was made by John Walker a friend of mine,John did quite a few of these conversions and as you said he put a s200 action in one,absolute genius,these where mad in a little garden shed on a lathe and a lot of hand finishing,but unfortunately most of his stuff went to the states,he has lots of pics of his creations and it really is fascinating to sit and talk to him,i will ask if he knows the whereabouts of any,cheers Mark.

I was going to try and do something similar some years ago using a deact and either spring gun or more preferred co2 internals.
The general consensus was that making a deact fire again even as an air rifle constituted very dodgy ground.
Really the only way forward is a whole new action made to look like an original.
Wanted to complete collection:
BSA Club, BSA Cadet.
Have BSA Mercury to Swap.
Unfortunately, John no longer carries out such work.
I have a Webley Service PCP conversion, and a Webley Senior CO2 conversion, both done by John.
As maw1 has said, a large amount of John's work went to the USA, but there are still a few of his conversions in the UK.
like his s200 pump action wich was very quick.he his a very clever bloke i liked his galland convertions but they all went to the states.but then they came from there.john .is the guy who made the mag for the s200.coddy
