A UNIQUE OP­POR­TU­NITY

Air Gunner - - In The News -

Lovers of Air Arms ri­fles need to be sure to visit the Mid­land Game Fair be­cause they’ll find a chance to buy unique ri­fle stocks to fit their prized guns. Over the years Air Arms has bought in pro­to­type stocks to fit sev­eral of their models and for one rea­son or an­other some never made it into the cat­a­logue.

Un­til now they’ve been us­ing up valu­able stor­age space at the fac­tory, so the man­age­ment team de­cided to sell them to Air Arms fans who will trea­sure the chance to own a rare piece of the com­pany’s his­tory.

As you can see from the pho­tos, some of them are highly un­usual, whilst oth­ers are sub­tle vari­a­tions on the ones you and I can buy today. Every one will be on dis­play at the game fair and it will be a case of first come, first served. Once they’re gone there will never be a chance to buy one again, so if this is your thing, you need to get there early.

Prices will vary from model to model and be dis­played on the stock, and will not be ne­go­tiable. It seems cer­tain that keen col­lec­tors will snap th­ese up un­less you get in first.

The pho­tos we’ve seen show stocks to fit the S200, S510 Twice, and S410/ 510, and there are more that we haven’t seen, so there should be a good chance that there will be one to fit the model you own. Good luck! We hope you find your dream stock at the show.

Fancy a stock in a colour yet to be of­fered as an op­tion? Then make the Air Arms stand your early- bird ap­point­ment at the Mid­land. Th­ese are all fully-fin­ished stocks that per­fectly fit their re­spec­tive ri­fle models, and as this magazine goes to press, Air Arms is still se­lect­ing them for the com­pany’s unique ‘on sale of­fer’, so who knows what will be there? Here’s the Air Gun­ner of­fice favourite of the stocks we’ve seen so far. It’s a grey/blue vari­a­tion of the ‘barbed wire’ theme for the Air Arms S200. We’re not al­lowed to buy the stocks, but if you get in early, you can walk away with some­thing truly spe­cial. Ac­tu­ally, the more we study th­ese stocks, the more we won­der why they didn’t make it into pro­duc­tion. Maybe that’s a ques­tion you can ask Air Arms at the show. We’ll def­i­nitely be do­ing just that.

How about this amaz­ing ‘barbed wire’ fin­ished stock for your beloved Air Arms S200? Like all the other stocks on of­fer at this year’s Mid­land Game Fair, this one was pre­sented as a pro­duc­tion pos­si­bil­ity which didn’t make it as a fac­tory op­tion. We think it looks great and it’s al­ready ob­vi­ous that get­ting to the Air Arms stand early is go­ing to be the best way of bag­ging some­thing spe­cial
