    Well just in case Nick ever did bottle it, I'll happily take over, I'd even put a new cutting disc in the angle grinder

    What size shoe box are we talking about anyway

    It would be nice to pretend its a joke, that somehow this travesty of an airgun is something people should aspire to, but it's not.
    If they had ceased production in 1937 then maybe there would be a case for that, they didn't. They are still making it. In short it is shit. Properly shit. It looks shit, handles like shit and, well. Its just shit.

    I can't stresss enough how much of a waste of money this is unless you are really after a collectible from the past.

    I could never in good conscience recommend it to anyone I had any respect or affection for. There is a special page for owners, enjoy!

    Just my opinion of course.

    Herman didn't make his first air rifle until 1950. You can use that in your magazine if you want.

    Then wtf did he start out with crappy 19C designs?

    Have you ever wondered why no one, no one ever, has copied the HW35 design?

    It's cos its shit!

    I rather impressed myself with that one!

    Lovely little scaled-down Soviet homage to the 35E, is the IJ-22

    I should get you one for Christmas.
