GET­TING A GAT

Airgun World - - Points Of You -

I am hop­ing you can help me to lo­cate the com­pany who is re-man­u­fac­tur­ing the GAT. A cou­ple of sites say that it is back by pop­u­lar de­mand, but they have no phone num­bers, and one doesn’t have a work­ing shop­ping cart so I am re­luc­tant to deal with them.

Like many of my age, I had one and loved it to bits – lit­er­ally – and now with grand­chil­dren and a big gar­den, I wanted to set up (with corks) a rel­a­tively safe and fun shoot­ing gallery for them.

I’m hop­ing that you are aware of the re­vival of this great quirky pis­tol and can pro­vide some de­tails for me. Thank you for your help. DON

I had the priv­i­lege of spend­ing some time with James Harrison, the orig­i­nal man­u­fac­turer of the Gat, and what a re­mark­able man he was. I’m also on record as stat­ing that, in terms of in­tro­duc­ing new­com­ers to our sport, the Gat is one of the most ‘im­por­tant’ airguns ever made. As for get­ting a new one now, I’ll hand you over to our ever-reliable read­ers, Don, and good luck with your search. – Ed

Just about as low-tech as it gets, but few airguns brought more into our sport than the Har­ring­ton Gat.
