1962-1966 B.S.A Meteor MK II Near Mint, Boxed, .22 Calibre Break Action Air Rifle 'TA' Prefix Serial Number, Telescopic Sight & Accessories. Sn 13846 - 13846

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 II Meteor in .22 Calibre. It has a mint undamaged light coloured wood stock with grooved butt end. The metal work is undamaged and retains all of its original blueing. It has a block and blade fore sight. The top of the adjustable rear sight is stamped with the BSA piled arms logo and the top of the cylinder forward of its 2 raised scope mounts is crisply electroplated 'BSA Meteor' with stylised arrow logo. The rifle's serial number 'TA16313' is stamped on the underside of the barrel block. The 'TA' prefix serial number dates the rifle to between 1962 and 1966 (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 ‘.22 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 rifle comes with its original cardboard retail box which contains its original pressed cardboard inserts to protect the rifle & original accessories which accompanied the rifle when it was 1st bought. The exterior of the box has colourful BSA labelling and imagery. The edges of the box have become detached but still holds the rifle securely with the assistance of a string loop. The edges of the box could easily be rejoined. The box contains its original telescopic sight with plastic coated body and integral sight mounts & metal target holder which contains 3 original BSA competition bullseye targets which are clean and unused. The price for this near mint boxed rifle with original accessories includes UK delivery. NB As a post 1939 Air rifle, the restrictions of the Crime Reduction Act apply to the sale and delivery of this item. Sn 13846
