    Lee Enfield BB "Rifle"

    Anybody seen or heard anything about this yet? Saw it mentioned on one of the Lee Enfield Facebook groups.

    The South of England has 2 good things, the M1 and the A1. Both will take you to Yorkshire.

    Let's hope unlike the Nagant it's putting out decent fps!

    Indeed.
    Nagant disappoints.
    MP 40 doesn't.

    Why no Info ?

    Somewhere I started a thread on who and where the Nagant Rifle and ( by default ) others are made -
    http://www.airgunbbs.com/showthread....-Co2-bb-by-Who

    Got given me a recent copy of Airgun Shooter and there was a piccy of this SMLE and the K98 coming too .
    There is also an e-reader online sum'it thingey showing images stating July as release .
    https://www.pressreader.com/uk/airgu...82991104808468

    Think it fair to say things are delayed in getting them to the shops , but OP's link here shows a nicer lower price of 379 .
    Somewhere saw it quoted as mid 400's
    No info , doing a search brings nothing - Fps details , spares back-up . Who actually makes it would be nice to know ?

    Very interested in the SMLE, as the No4 is something I have used a lot, and I owned a WWA/S&P air cartridge conversion back when you could (great fun, but also rubbish, it's saving grace being that it was a de-act that shot).

    But, really, 400? For a plinker? I'm not saying I wouldn't, but 400 buys you a lot of "proper air rifle". Or a slightly dodgy used car.

    About bloody time they brought out a British rifle, I'll be keeping an eye out for one of these, let's hope they bring out a STEN next

    Ditto -- and I paid nearly the same for my original 1916 example with deact cert, too, which can be owned off F.A.C. (and I know which two of the three versions I would rather own ) ...

    They are low powered bb guns.

    And as such I would expect poor accuracy.

    The full length Nagant doesn't even have a full length barrel, I am told.

    For 400 quid they could at least have produced something with a rifled barrel and revolving pellet magazine?

    Yes, like the Umarex Walther Winchester.

    Guessing here, but are the Mosin (etc) variants of a 6mm plastic ball airsoft gun? That would explain a lot.

    Do you know what fps you're getting from your MP40?
