The King ‘Model 22’ 500 Shot BB rifle is of tin construction with wooden stock. It has an underlever action with a removable barrel for loading. When the pellets run out the end of the barrel can be pressed into a potato and used as a ‘spud gun’ (not tested). It is 31 ½ “long with an 8” barrel. The loading orifice is just under the foresight and to open you turn the front milled rim anti- clockwise as it faces you. After pouring in the BB’s rotate the front barrel face clockwise to close the hole. Made from around 1916 -1934 by The Markham Air Rifle Co Plymouth Michigan U.S.A. This example is in very good condition, the wooden stock only has very minor signs of use related wear and the tinplate has a lovely aged patina. The action, loading and firing actions work as it should with a strong spring action.
