    And, just to sweeten my week, I won an eBay auction at lunchtime today. Over the weekend, I stumbled onto another Weaver V22-A Dual x 3-6 variable power scope! Like the one I bought in the late 70’s when a store in our area named, ” Clarkin’s” was going belly up. Bought it for 27 dollars and change out the door brand new. I now have two of them,…[Read more]

    Well, things got interesting since last Friday. I bought another rifle from the same guy below. This time German, a Diana he said. Or at least he thought. So many of us on a couple forums have been searching and guessing as to what it could be since then. Yesterday, he messaged me on Facebook that it was stamped, on the left side of the breech…[Read more]

    Well, I had to do some more detailed cleaning on the Daisy/Sears model 799 I got cheap from a friend. $20 for a rifle basically in good, serviceable condition. The Sears only version of the popular Daisy 880. After a Rem-Oil rubdown, I had to do some more detailed cleaning with Rem-Oil, Qtips & a green Scotchbrite pad. It seems to have cocking &…[Read more]

    Yet another beautiful Indian summer day! September first hunting season opened for squirrel. Bag limit here in Ohio is now 10! Used to be four in the old days. Damn, I wish my L2 and right hip were fixed last spring. Darn Feds took until last month/end of July to finally refund me. Surgeon wants his cut up front. Darn it. I planned to go afield…[Read more]

    This time, we’re going back to the mid-60’s. Back when rifles, even air rifles, were wood-n-steel with quality barrels & workmanship! But everything gets old sooner or later. So, with that in mind, I’m restoring a 1965 Crosman model 99 lever action repeater. .22 caliber pellet that holds 10 rounds. Right here on The Airgun Tinker!

    The Feds finally gave up on looking for faults in my return, & paid up Monday. Oh yeah, daddy goin’ shoppin’! Perused eBay and found a buy it now for a like-new AIR17. Scarfed it up! I wanted one for myself, after giving my #2 son back the one I bought him as a boy a couple Christmases ago. Then, I found two NOS rifles up for bids from the same…[Read more]

    And a pic of the rifle and scope put together. The cleaned and rubbed down with Rem-Oil. I was surprised to find the barrel was already very clean when I went to swab it out and brush it!

    Well, the rifle finally came in! It feels light, even with the scope mounted!? Check it out in my newest video on The Airgun Tinker;

    And…here it is Tuesday of the following week & I\’m still waiting on that rifle! Was supposed to be out for delivery yesterday? But they changed it to today saying it was still in transit at some hub 50 miles from here? Why can\’t they just admit they lost it again for the 3rd time in a couple months. UPS is just as bad as USPS.

    Well, since SS payday finally arrived today, I got up and went to Crosman.com to see if the 25% odd coupon I earned from their PCP questionnaire on Facebook would work on other Crosman rifles, etc. It did indeed! So I used it on their Repeatair 1077W. That wood stock makes it look way better! And unlike the Umarex one, this one’s a true…[Read more]

    Whew! This heat wave is gettin\’ intense! 95 degree dry desert air. It\’s been reminiscent of the western states the last time we went out to Rio Rancho and the painted desert. And the Texas panhandle was 130+ in the shade! Supposed to go down tomorrow finally.
