1959-1962 B.S.A Meteor MK I .177 Calibre Break Action Air Rifle 'NH' Prefix Serial Number, with Target Sight in excellent condition . AI 505.
Birmingham Small Arms introduced the Meteor Air rifle in both .177 & .22 calibre in 1959. MK 1 rifles were produced until 1962 when the MK II model was introduced. MK II production continued until 1968. The small frame rifle is 41 ½” overall with an 18" barrel. This is a near mint example of the MK I Meteor in .177 Calibre. It has a light coloured wood stock with grooved butt end. The metal work retains all of its original blueing. The top of the adjustable rear rail is stamped with 'BSA Meteor' with stylised arrow logo. The rifle's serial number 'NH43081' is stamped on the underside of the barrel block. The 'NH' prefix serial number dates the rifle to between 1959 and 1962 (see page 39 of Collector's Guide to Air Rifles By Hiller). The top of the barrel is stamped ‘BSA Guns Ltd England’ together with ‘.177 Cal’ and BSA piled arms logo. 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.
