The Britannia Air Rifle
Collecting and using airguns from 100 years ago can be inevitable. One old name that is held in awe by many is Britannia. The name refers to the Britannia Air Rifle which appeared in Edwardian Britain then passed into airgun folklore.   By 1900 most airguns were simple break barrel Continental designs with smoothbore barrels. Over time people came up with ideas to improve them. When gunsmith Frederick Cox of Handsworth, Birmingham released his design it followed the period style but displayed some important ideas.   (Early to late production changes  - 700's , 1900's , 2300's, 2700's)   Aesthetically unique with a short length achieved

THE AIRMADGEDDON CURRENT LEADERBOARD SCORES   My father often allows me to accompany him on his hunting or shooting expeditions and - I must admit - I enjoy my time out with him; the interesting stories he tells and the experiences we have make our outings all the more worthwhile.

Anyway, enough talking, to the bench!    [Music]   So before we start on the wood I'm actually putting some of the metal bits back in place so that we do sort of finish them together or else you end up with that really awful wood to metal fit, but to be honest you’d completely

A very German Webley Service Air Rifle
If you like old air pistols then you may well know the name Webley. Their shared pistol design is a spring chamber with a barrel riding piggyback. The barrel is hinged to the front and pulls the piston back away from the user to cock the gun. On release, the piston pushes the air towards the breech block then up and out into the barrel. Very odd - the air does a U turn. Webley decided to have a go at air rifles but strangely kept to this layout.   Their very first MK1 looked like a super-sized pistol but soon became
