    1970’s Original Sussex Armoury 'Jackal' Side Lever Single Shot .22 Calibre Military Assault Rifle Style Air Rifle (As Carried By Storm Troopers In The 1977 Film Star Wars). AI 635 - AI 635

    The Jackal air rifle was a pivotal design that led to the rise and acceptance of synthetic stock use in Britain today. Sussex Armoury, the Hailsham-based maker of the Jackal range, was not shy in designing air rifles that caught the eye in the 1970s. Its close association with Sig-Hammerli in Switzerland led to production of the side-lever cocking military look ‘Jackal’ air rifle. Interestingly, because of the futuristic appearance of the Jackal, in the iconic 1977 film Star Wars, Darth Vader’s Imperial Storm Troopers were armed with ‘blasters’ which were made from stock parts of Sussex Armoury Jackal air rifles. Sussex Armoury produced the 'Jackal' model Air Rifles until their closure in 1982. Air Arms took over production of the Jackal renaming it the AR7. Sussex Armoury models had 'Jackal' engraved on the top of the cylinder housing while Air Arms models had 'Air Arms' in the same place. This is an excellent 1970’s Sussex Armoury single shot side lever .22 Calibre Air Rifle. It has a rugged black plastic stock. It measures 44 ¾” overall length. It is fitted with sling swivels and is crisply stamped 'Jackal’ on top of its cylinder housing. It is serial number ‘03716’. It has shrouded foresight and adjustable winged rear sight. The weapon cocks loads and fires as it should with a strong spring action. The price includes UK delivery. NB As a post 1939 Air Weapon the restrictions of the Crime Reduction Act apply to the sale and delivery of this air rifle. AI 635
