EXTREMELY RARE, 1890 To Early 1900's German Gem style Break Action Combination Air Rifle Imported / Retailed By Arbenz Birmingham Air Gun


Gem Style Air rifles were produced from the 1890's to 1920. The patents for Gem Air Rifles were made out in 1894 and adverts for Gems have been seen as late as 1911 (see page 124 of A Collector's Guide To Air Rifles By Hiller).

The break action of these models is performed by depression of the thumb operated lever located on top of the breech.

Our "Gem" has a 17 ¾” round blued steel barrel stepped to octagonal and is just measures 35” overall length. The smoothbore has just light staining consistent with age. It has a blade fore sight and the rear sight is a notched block which forms part of the barrel release catch and functions as it should.

The original walnut shoulder stock has just light bumps and bruises to be expected.

The price for this extremely rare piece of air gun history worthy of further research. £100 Price includes UK delivery....Read full description
