Description

The Acvoke pistol was developed after the end of WWII . The post war market for air guns proved profitable, and the leading manufacturer in the field was ‘Webley & Scott’. Accles & Shevoke Ltd designed the Acvoke as a rival for the popular ‘Webley Junior’ pistol. The Acvoke was patented in 1946, although it was largely based on the ‘German Tell II’ air pistol. A distinctive feature that it folded when the pistol was broken. When broken, the pellet was lodged in the breech end of the barrel. The Acvoke was rather popular in the late 40’s and early 50’s because of its cheap price and very small, sleek design. This .177 example is in excellent condition for its age, showing some marks to the bluing on the cylinder, trigger/guard and cocking lever and the front sight is off centre. The plastic grips have ‘Acvoke’ imprinted and are undamaged. The rear sight has ‘Accles & Shelvoke Ltd – Patent Applied For- Birmingham 6 ENG’ imprinted on it. The serial No is 14372 and is imprinted on the lever. The pistol cocks and fires crisply and its smooth bore is clean. A great piece for the collector. The price includes UK delivery. NB As a post 1939 Air Pistol the restrictions of the Crime Reduction Act apply to the sale & delivery of this item. AI 637
