    I think Ogilkes will be along soon as he is a Relum collector. I guess it is the Relum "Hurricane" pistol which is an underlever with a fold out breech on the side? Gamo copied this for the falcon and center. I have never actually had one of these pistols and always fancied having a look. Somebody I know had one as a kid and said the barrel came loose on his.
    It has got to be better than the "artex" pistol that followed it. I sent one of those to Ogilkes last year and that was a damn crappy pistol .

    Yes I have one, .22 with the wire shoulder stock. I like it, its something unusuall. Got it of Gunstar, and it wasnt that expensive. They were sold through mail order catalouges of the day.

    The good old Hurricane. Made by FEG in Budapest, these underlever pistols were interesting, that's perhaps the best thing to say. Not entirely reliable, the underlever design and side loading port were nevertheless copied successfully by Gamo for their Center and Falcon pistols. A little on the clunky side, FEG used the same stock for an underlever pistol too, which later was restocked in plastic. Interesting to see what one can make of them. There were two versions, one with a steel shoulder stock and a straight forward pistol.

    Spot on Guy! Cannot resist a Relum. The Artex remains rubbish, but it will actually fit in a Hurricane stock and looks like the wooden stocked version of this.

    By the way, I still a have some rifles, whats the new address?

    Pm Sent Ollie---still not sorted with a place yet.
    sure that Artex either had a bit missing (that pushed onto the cocking arm) or it is a really crappy design and it could do with something improvising--- Like a wheel or a bar.
    I had that bugger apart about 6 or 7 times, messing with various springs before i hit on the combination of it cocking without flipping the cocking arm out AND it.s mighty power level.
    If anyone has every had a broken airgun that they have never seen before and that you cannot find a parts diagram off/stripping guide, you are missing out on some fun.
