    Sorry, I should have worded my post differently, I said it looks like a B3, not that it is a B3. There would be no BSA markings on a B3, so if it says BSA, it probably is one.

    I should have said, "the B3 looks similar to your gun".

    CZ, Your rifle is most likely (according to pictures in "The Airgun Book" and Smith's "Gas, Air and Spring Guns"), a Barvaria S54 Standard. There were 3 variants of the Series 54, standard (single "grasping" grove on forend), the sport with deepend forend and three groves and the match, which was basically the same as the sport with a muzzle wieght.

    The BSF- Bavaria rifles are good quality German made rifles, I am surprised some of the ballies on the forum didn't know the BSF's, I meen Guido is 94 and Gerrief, well he just carries his age well (he he).

    The Industry Brand effort of a clone is not worth the last tin of pellets I emptied with my BSF. :moon

    I started air rifle competitively in 1962 with a BSF fitted with Anschutz sights.

    Warrick,
    I'll sort you out when I see again for calling a "Ballie." (Although I know I am.) I grew up with Diana,Gecado(?), BSA,Falc(?) 80 and 90 and the the Jelly. Never heard of a BSF. For a long time in my life I did not bother with toys like air rifles. Today I'm sorry because my best shooting days are gone, never realised it.

    My first airrifle was one of those BSF's as shown in the picture. In fear of beingh called an "old ballie" I will not give the date, but it was more or less the time mentioned.

    About the " Jelly" : When I was in England last year I enquired about spares for a rifle I was restoring. Nobody knew the rifle (Jelly) I was talking about. It turns out that the rifle was actually called Telly.

    Ja swaer, those were the days spending weekends on Oupa's farm, BSF in the hand and a mouthfull of Marksmans. Taking our jobs of controlling the kwazilion doves raiding the sunflower lands seriously was exausting! %-6

    I wish I knew ho many Marksmans I have swallowed in my life. I will confess today that the very first time in my life I paid for pellets was when I bought my Gammo two years ago. I always used to zick my pellets from the Indian bicycle shop. Hell, now I feel much better!!!
