    Air Arms Khamsin Rifle Valuation Help Please.

    A fellow club member has asked for my help in valuing the above rifle he has owned since new.
    It is in very good condition and has had very little use, this rifle is way out of my limited knowledge, and after some internet research finding prices from dealers from 550 ! down I thought the gentlemen of the collectable section might be able to help.
    I am not able to post photos, old and not good with computers but I can email them to anyone that can help if they email me at the address in my sig.
    Many thanks.

    I just bought a very good SE90 walnut stock in LH from a dealer for 245. It's much the same action, so how much do you value the thumb hole stock on top? Does the TH stock really double its value?
    Thanks - Geoff.

    Thumbs up

    I paid 165 for this SE90 from the airgun Fayre at Melbourne a couple of years ago and I know that the bloke stuck a fair few quid on it as he'd bought it off one of the other sellers before the fayre started (I saw the ticket that was still on it!!)

    I was also given a Khamsin as a 'do-er upper' but it's a leftie!!, I should really get round to it even though it's cack handed!!

    It needs a reblue as well as some trigger parts and the stock refinishing! I was going to open out the right side of the thumbhole so that it was ambidextrous but was told it would be sacrilage

    It's in this pile!!

    To the op, I would think that maybe slightly under 300 would be closer to the mark unless it's boxed, as new and with gold parts fitted!!

    I have a righthand walnut thumbhole stock version with a 10" barrel and the original barrel also. and id say mine is worth around 270-300. But i could be a bit low. But again depends on how much someone is prepared to pay really.

    Thats why i have a jackal also. Both working fine but if the khamsin needs parts id use the jackal and sell the stock off snd keep the rest.

    Red face

    Actually, The parts that are missing are two pins/circlips for the trigger and the adjuster and spring, Pretty sure I can make them all

    The trigger blade is held in place by a pop rivet (Nope, It wasn't me!! )


    Not sure if I mentioned, The Khamsin is a leftie too!, It's a tight fit for a chubby thumb!!
