    Kempton Park Fair - 1 Aug 2021 Photos

    A huge thank you to Liz and Peter Binfield as well as the team for putting on another successful event.

    There were some interesting 'fresh' airguns at today's show including a boxed Haenel 28R, a Westley Richards with heart cutout and a fair old selection of BSA air rifles, many of which were fitted with BSA No 12, No 21a and No 22 aperture sights. Then there was an especially nice Imprved Model B that I narrowly missed out on after another collector recognised a bargain when he saw one. I was too slow as usual!

    Anyway here are a few snaps from the day's event.

    Enjoy.

    Currently looking for Baikal Makarov pistols with the following prefixes to the serial number: 98, T01, T03, T07, T08, T09, T14, T21
    Prefer boxed or cased but will consider loose examples too.

    Thank you for the kind comments all.

    Those scopes were on Brian Moore's (Purbeck Guns) stall. I don't have contact details for him unfortunately.

    Kind regards,

    Excellent snaps as ever John, would like to have made this one, but family commitments meant it wasn't to be.

    Hi John,

    Do my eyes deceive me or is that really a £3,000.00 price tag on the Cogswell & Harrison Certus pistol ?

    Took the words right out of my mouth i was wondering the same.i have one and was interested in the sellers price , is that a true reflection of its value.

    It didn't cock as such Mick.
    When the trigger was pulled, the small central bar/shaft, with the roughened end went backwards, and forwards when the trigger was released. The person who had it thought it was a flint gas lighter. Looked professionally made.

    Very interesting object !

    As has been said, a good Fair again by Binners and his good lady, and the weather helped by staying dry, well it was for as long as I was there.

    Some excellent displays of guns and militaria as we have come to expect from this Fair.

    I purchased a lovely Light Pattern which I purchased solely for my Bell Target shooting.

    If it wasn't for the long journey, 392 miles round trip for me, I would make it to them all.

    Thanks again to Liz and Pete, it was very nice to meet you both again and of course the BBS members I bumped into.

    Cheers

    Looks like another great achievement by ‘Team Binners’

    Hi Lakey, many thanks for the reply. l just couldn't figure it out. it make sense now,with the screw as the foresight to take the flint. more than likely made by someone in the casting line who had a interest in Webley air pistols. something for the serious Webley collector.
