The Milbro Cub 'Automatic' Air Pistol was patented in France and production began in the late 1940's (see page 443 of the Blue Book Of Air Guns By Beeman). The Cub has a gravity feed tube magazine that was advertised to hold approx 500 2mm lead shot pellets and firing the pistol is achieved by manual grip compression of the black 'raw rubber' bulb built into the pistol's grip. The pistol is of one piece cast alloy construction and has the correct 'raw rubber' bulb at the grip (The bulb has gone solid with age). These quirky pistols have no moving parts and were legendary for their weak power. Both sides of the frame are marked 'Milbro Cub Calibre 2mm .55' and the butt is crisply marked 'R. Boulet Paris' together with British licence/ Patent detail (illustrated). The pistol is contained in it's original cardboard box with high colour Milbro labelling and imagery. The box contains 2 original Milbro pellet boxes one of which contains a quantity of lead pellets, a number of original spare Milbro washers in original packaging, an additional perished raw rubber bulb and original illustrated instructions. Price for this collectable boxed air pistol with accessories includes UK delivery.
