    I bet he also has a few Webley pistols tucked away but decided to feature the more unusual models in his collection. Interesting that he has a Benjamin Model 177 pump-up pistols which first appeared in the mid-thirties and not the twenties as he believed to be the case. I only know this as I have just picked up one myself and can't wait to take it to the range to see how it performs compared with the later models. Although obviously not as efficient as the later underlever charging pistols, I prefer the cleaner appearance of the front bicycle pump charging mechanism and none of these were ever offered convenient charging.

    With videos like this, I can see how getting the collecting bug grabs some people, I'm glad I don't feel that way inclined.
    Stick to one's guns.

    I've seen this, nice presentation indeed. I like the rare Chinese underlever ('Šir'), can't find any further details on the web though.

    They donít help the weak-willed.
    After watching a couple of the recent videos in collectibles I find I need more pistols in my life.
    Thank god they donít take up too much space..

    That'll be Evan Minton. He runs a New Zealand airgun group on Facebook.
