B.S.A Merlin .177 Calibre Under Lever Air Rifle. Sn KA5954

Birmingham Small Arms introduced the Merlin under lever Air rifle in both .177 & .22 calibre in 1962 and production continued until 1968. The small frame rifle has an unusual loading feature in that when the underlever is cocked a loading gate raises out of the breach and is manually pushed back into the breach by the user after loading a pellet. This is a very good example of the Merlin in .177 Calibre. It measures 36" overall with a 14 ½” barrel. It has an undamaged light wood stock with a grooved butt. The wood has just light bumps and bruises consistent with age and use. The metalwork is undamaged and retains its original blue finish. The top of the barrel is stamped with ‘BSA Guns Ltd, England, .177 Cal' and piled arms trademark. The top of the cylinder between its double scope grooves is marked 'BSA Merlin'. The rifle's serial number ' is stamped on the left side near the loading gate. The serial number Sn KA5954 dates the rifle to between 1962 and 1964 (see page 61 of Collector's Guide to Air Rifles By Hiller). The barrel's bore is clean with crisp rifling and it cocks and fires as it should with a strong spring action. The price includes UK delivery. NB As a post-1939 Air rifle, the restrictions of the Crime Reduction Act apply to the sale and supply of this item. Sn 17942
