    Rifle Identification Required

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

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/teirmb2dpg...rifle.jpg?dl=0

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

    Can anyone help?

    Thank you.

    with the flip forward safety i would guess AA 300 or 500. the pics are not much help.
    the only thing i can find wrong is the nut on the steering wheel.

    Not Air Arms.

    The stock patterning reminds me of an SMK/Chinese. clone???? Or Crosman (unlikely)
    But not a clue generally
    Cheers, Phil

    It looks a bit like the Alros Starfire but has a different shape stock. I was visiting a well known airgun dealer last month and he has some high quality Japanese CO2 rifles which I cant remember the name of. The quality of finish on this one and the tyrolean stock make it look similar. Are there no markings under the stock ?

    One Japanese quality maker is Taiyo Juki, but it looks a bit different to pics on the net.

    I didn't know the Japanese did a co2 rifle Baz, are we talking old ones?
    Keep the sand out of your weapons, keep those actions clear, and I'll see you on the beach.

    Looks like a very early Ripley to me.

    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.

    That's a Ripley if I'm not mistaken, Piotr
    Put on heading 270, assume attack formation

    Mike, Japanese rifles made by Howa are very desirable and sought by collectors. Vary rare in UK, more likely to be found in the USA having been specially imported. Quality is top class. See link..

    That looks very nice, now I think of it I have heard of Howa mentioned before, didn't know it was a Japanese make.

    That is a very nice looking rifle, shame there aren't more detailed / close up pics available
