    Default Restoration of Falke Model-80

    Hi,

    Is there anybody out there who could help with restoring old airguns? I have salvaged most of the parts of a Falke Mod 80 from a garage. I have basically everything except a stock, spring and the trigger guard. Where can I have a stock made at an affordable price? Also, is it worth it to restore this rifle? Any help or info would be highly appreciated.

    Just completed one and the power is surprisingly high for such an old rifle. With a AA field pellets it clocked an 870 fps avarage on the Chrony. This is VERY high for an old rifle. Parts are hard to come by exept for the spring.

    I remember as a kid my grandfather had one, and it was much more powerful than the "common"ones we kids used. What you are basically telling me is to restore it anyway. Where did you find a spring, by the way?

    I remember my FRIENDS having model 80 or 90's. If you could lay your hands on one in those days you were really spoiled by your parents because it was the only really decent gun available, compared to Diana etc. Gecado and Jelly wasn't too bad in them years but the Falke was THE gun to drool about. Powerful and accurate! Now it is a collector's piece, so make a plan and restore it to it's old glory.

    I find most of my spares at Hotpowder in Krugersdorp.
