    Vintage air pistol

    Hi,
    Does anyone know where I might source a rear sight for my Haenel 28 1930,s air pistol.
    Cheers, Hector

    I managed to get one.New old stock from what was one of the old Soviet Block countries acquired by a dealer in Scotland decades ago.

    Not seen one for sale but if you are handy with tools they look relatively straight forward to have a bash at, might be worth a go if nothing else is forthcoming?

    That's good.... Did you find one or make one?

    Nice pistols but I find them hard to cock no matter which techniques suggested. If they were Luger trainers I wish thay modelled it on the Artillery one with an 8" barrel & shoulder stock option. I could do with the extra leverage!

    Mate read what I posted and your question will be answered.As for cocking it,yes its tricky but all you have to do is put the rear of the barrel on your thigh,then with the left hand hold the barrel where the pellets are loaded.Pull the grip back with the right hand until you hear a click and thats it.
