    Rifle Identification Required

    I have been asked by a Friend to identify this rifle for him and put a value on it:

    I am not sure what it is, Sharps of some sort? Webley?

    Can anyone help?

    Thank you.

    I think it's a very early Ripley. The bolt and breech is right also the filler cover as well.
    If it was out of the stock it would give a few clues as well.

    Not my area of vague knowledge, but the stock looks like a 1980s/90s CS tyro.

    Maybe an early Air Arms?

    Does it have any words or numbers on it that might help ID it?

    Thanks for the replies, all I have is these pictures for now. I'll hopefully see it on Sunday and all should be revealed, if not I'll try to take better pictures.

    Has OP stated whether its PCP or CO2 ? Cylinder protrudes very little past stock and end cap looks like CO2 ? Thought at first it was a Howa but bolt is too far back.

    On my Titans all the barrel bands were threaded for the stock fixing screws to locate.
