GETTING A GAT
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.
