    Hi I have just joined this forum, my name is Keith I am a shooter (but not air rifles) I shoot manly vintage / obsolete calibre rifles and muzzle loading shotguns, sadly I have come into a few bits and pieces of air gun related parts and was wondering if there would be any interest in them? I have included 3 photos showing all I have, if there is interest I will take individual photos and place in the sale forum.
    The rifles are 1, Diana model 15, 2, American Tool Co single shot Model D, 3, A barrel .177 from something ?????, 4, is a bit of something from something you can perhaps tell me?
    Hope I have not broken any rules with this message, if I an out of line please let me know, I am not a dealer just got these few bits to dispose of. DSCF2272.JPG DSCF2255.JPG DSCF2259.JPG

    Welcome to the forum Flinty.

    Hopefully someone will be along with a few offers soon. Those John Bull pellet boxes look interesting.

    Those Sabo pellets can be highly sought after by ammo collectors ;)

    I know nothing about them, but someone will be along shortly. If you do get some useful info and you decide to sell, it would be appreciated if you offered them for sale here 1st, especially if the guys here helped you with info, they are a good bunch and you will usually get a good price.... :thumb:

    Hi yes, always prefer to deal person to person, no buyers or sellers commision that way, just testing the water before placing ads for each item, the forums in my world are very poorly supported and are a waste of time, I can see already this is well supported so hopefully will have a deal or two.

    American Tool Works Sterling Model D is worth a bit. According to the US “Blue Book” they were made no later than 1928 and are valued at $900 in 95% condition, $450 in 60%, £325 40%, $180 in 20%. Yours looks more toward the 20% end of the spectrum (hard to tell from pics), but it’s still a rare item that appeals to a particular kind of collector (not me!).

    As has been said, you can get more money than you would expect (and a lot more than they are worth as projectiles!) for Sabos.

    Not sure about the rifles but some of the pellets you have there often fetch the following,

    Sussex Sabot between £18 and £25 depending on if full , condition , calibre and if theres a loading pen. Horrible pellets but someone likes em. Theres 2 x tubs of .22 on fleabay with a bid at £40 but they look in pretty good nick and all there.

    Eley Magnum £15 to £20. For FAC airguns but are just .22 solid rimfire slugs in a Wasp tin with a Magnum label.

    Webley .22 about £15 if full and tin and pellets in good condition.

    Bulldog £10 or so if full etc.

    Lazadome £10 to £20 again depending if full. £20 if tin is in good condition if a collector wants them.

    Not sure on the John Bull pellets and the rest are pretty regular pellets that aren't that old from the 90's and not too collectable so say about £5 to £10 depending on tin and pellet condition maybe.

    The Sabots will certainly get snapped up I imagine going by what they go for on fleabay

    Hope that helps pellet wise.

    the third one down without the stock looks like something i had as a child.
    the underlever cocked,it made a good bang and fired a puff of air.the box
    that they came in had a target on the inside of the lid.target was plastic
    cut into strips and the air from the gun would move the target enough to
    register a hit.

    My thanks to Brandon for the info on my pellets,and Geezer for the rifle info, have now advertised the Sabo's to see how they go, will try the Eley Magnum and Webley 22 later, it sound like the rest from the 90's would not be worth the cost of posting, I have some firearms / shotgun bits going in the next Southams auction so will chuck the rest in a box job lot.
    I have been looking into the John Bull Pellets, quite a lot on the coloured label but no reference at all to the Black and White label, sadly they are both open and have approx 350 pellets,could the B/W one be wartime issue ? I know shotgun cartridges from that time came in plain boxes for vermin control.
    As to the rifles, being a vintage/ antique / muzzleloading shooter I might just keep them not sure yet.

    You might be worthwhile putting your John Bull pellets on fleabay. Lots of collectors look for pellets on there so the right buyers should pick up on them. A tin or box of Eley black boy pellets in very good condition went for £200 a few weeks ago so it shows those who know their worth trawl fleabay.
