    Default Another of yesterdays classics - Air Arms NJR100

    This rifle is a customised Air Arms NJR100:

    The rifle originally dates from the early 1990's, but has seen significant custmo work at some point. The barrel has been shortened from the breech end (to retain the choke) and the original two piece barrel collar and muzzle weight replaced by a sleek steel muzzle brake with air stripper (or still-air, the name originally thought up between Nick Jenkinson and Mick Dawes, who originally came up with this idea for air rifles). The action has been superbly reblued, I believe the external modifications may have been done by Sean Hill of ISP Air Rifles. The rifle is regulated and features a Colin Urquhart lightweight striker. An Olympic trigger unit is fitted as is the stainless lever bolt.

    The stock is one of Nick Jenkinsons 'NJ Custom' stocks, although non adjustable other than the butt pad,has all the right dimensions for FT needs.

    Accuracy of the rifle is excellent.

    Nick Jenkinson won two world championships using a rifle similar to this.

    We all tend to harp on barrel accuracy from time to time but no one ever seems to mention the role of a muzzle brake in accuracy.Many designs are prevalent such as fluting at the top end but my personal choice is a ported design. Really does improve accuracy.Just my opinion.

    Falcon ...fluting a barrel is simply to reduce weight and to increase surface area for cooling...only used in centrefire rifles.

    I would have my nuts removed non surgically by my wife .

    She is hacked off about my present few .

    Just to keep the peace one pistol is for sale & 2 air rifles have been given to good friends .

    I'll keep 3 air rifles & 2 pistols . That seems to have a peacefull aura about the house .

    But who knows what the future will bring ?

    Gerry,
    You remind me of a story I hard about a chap who's wife who had him choose between her and his bike. He says she wasn't such a bad chick, he misses her some, especially on rainy days.

    Dale,
    you got a Benji EB20 in that collection there? If so, you lucky fish.
    I still think a specimen circa 1990's would be so awesome...

    No, the only American air pistol I have is a rather old and tatty looking Crosman Model 600 semi auto.

    Gerrie ,

    I wont go there , to comment could get me in serious dwang , but I tend to agree with your friends statements .

    The old story , mainly used by drinkers , " why I prefer beer to women " springs to mind .

    The advert that appeared in the South Coast paper , a chap looking for a wife , she must own a boat , be prepared to drink beer , clean fish , cook wash & iron , Please send picture of boat !

    I wonder if he got any replies ?

    Hi Gerry,
    Thisis all in good humour. I will not swap my wife for all the rifles in the world, but she doesn't know that and I keep it that way.
