The Little Rock Airgun Expo – Part 1

by B.B. Pelletier

It was a smaller show this year, as several dealers we expected to show had either gone to the Pennsylvania show instead or they just didn’t go to any show. The scheduling error of two airgun shows on the same weekend was not intentional, and next year the two shows will coordinate to avoid a repeat.


Collector Tom Strayhorn always displays a nice stand of fine vintage air rifles. These Walthers are beauties!

Small or not, though, this show was still a good one. I met several blog readers there, and each person I met was kind enough to introduce himself to me.

What made it a good show for me and for most people were the guns that were there. I made a video to show more of this to you (in a few days). For today, I’ll just rely on words and a few pictures. Let’s begin with desirable airguns.

The FWB 124 is always asked for, and this show had several. One of them was in a gorgeous Maccari Tyrolean stock and sported a nice target aperture rear sight. There was also a deluxe model that appeared to be stock.

Sheridan Blue and Silver Streaks are always in demand, and this show was loaded with them. Some of the prices were very reasonable–much better than what you see on the internet classified ads.


Westley Richards Highest Possible spring-piston pistols are very desirable. This model, though, is nearly unheard-of. About 100 may exist.

One model I almost never see for sale is a Beeman C1.Well, there was a beautiful .22 cal. C1 present, and it had been broken in completely, which means it was a delight to shoot. My buddy, Mac, got it in a big trade, and I traded it out of him before he headed home. It didn’t come cheap, though! I will report on it in a future blog, of course.

I also bought a Haenel breakbarrel target rifle that looks very much like a 311 without the bolt. It has the same target sights and the same general look and feel, but the trigger is more of a sporter and less of a target unit like the one on the 311.


The carnival gun! This Shooting Star Pneumatic Gun is the one that shot out the red star on the midway. People who are not on the internet haven’t a clue where to get them, but there were at least three at this show.

I was disappointed that there were no BSF S55 rifles at this show. Imagine how I felt when I discovered that there was a beautiful one that reader David Enoch had scored from under me! Actually, I’d already spent 2X my budget by the time he showed it to me. If he hadn’t bought and it had still been for sale, l would have had to walk away from it, as I did the BSF S70 last year!


Big Bore Bob Dean had this boxed American Luger on his table. That’s about as unexpected as it gets, as he usually doesn’t have anything under about .357 caliber. You could make the down payment on a fine used car with what this rarity is worth.

Saturday brought a Noah-level rainstorm, which probably kept the locals home, so there were fewer bluebirds than I usually see, but a fine Diana model 6 pistol did walk in as did several other nice sporting rifles.

The best deal at the show was the Webley Tempest that sold for $50. The buyer has to feel good about that one.

Tomorrow, I’ll show you some really strange things I saw, so please bear with me. This was a really great show that was well worth the trip, in my book.

  1. …TX200 VS. RWS 54

    I have been shooting my Maccari FT tx200 over the past few weeks with an eye toward comparing it to my specially tuned (by both Rich Mich and Vince) 54.

    After having shot my 54 over the past 2 years (around 4,000 shots) and now having shot the tx200 for about 600 shots, I am really perplexed as to what anyone would actually prefer about the 54 over the tx200.

    These air rifles are used, as is the Whiscombe, for shooting/hunting small creatures and for field target competition. My understanding is that when one peruses the Spring class Winners List of most competitions over the past 10 years, the tx200 and Whiscombe are often there.

    The 54 seems a bit more often used in hunting, although BB has written about its accuracy in the same sentence as the tx200 and Whiscombe.

    Now, it is true that I am comparing highly tuned versions of each. However, I did use my 54 for over a year and 2,000 shots before the first tune, and then again for another 1,500 shots before the most recent tunes, and so I know what a stock 54 feels like (I bought the tx200 used, already Maccari tuned).

    These air rifles are at the top echelon for power and (medium to long range) accuracy of all spring guns, and perhaps the only other spring guns in the same class are the Whiscombes.

    About 85% of my shooting is indoor 10 meter (sitting), 10% is 20-45 yard rat/crow/squirrel sniping, and 5% is at over 45 yards when I am fortunate enough to get a vacation.

    1.) Trigger. The tx200 trigger is excellent. It is light and crisp. Only my JW80 and Zasadny Rapid’s triggers, which are outstanding, are better. The RWS 54 trigger, even after Rich and Vince’s best efforts, is simply good. It is much heavier and it does not break as crisply as the tx200.

    2.) Body hardware (windows, turn shift lever, doors, glove box door). When I bought my used low mileage ’96 Sedan de Ville a few years back I was not surprised at the “looseness” of every latch, knob, and lever, and it was the price I was willing to pay for a “riding” experience as divorced from the road as I could get (little harshness, noise, vibration) short of a Lexus 400 million dollars.
    The RWS 54 is the Sedan De Ville of air rifles…powerful, loose, and as divorced from noise, vibration, and harshness as one can get in a powerful air rifle (the Whiscombe is louder, the tx200 kicks more).
    HOwever, I am not driving my 54, and the looseness of even the rifle itself when picked up (it slides) has become glaring after using the tx200. The hardware on the tx200 is tight and feels and looks considerably more like the hardware on a Lexus 400 or Mercedes 350.

    3.) Stock. The tx200 is considerably less chunky, and the angle of the trigger hand that the tx200 requires the shooter to make is significantly more physiologically natural than is the angle required by the rws 54. I am able to shoot the tx200 (right hand stock) accurately shooting righty or lefty, as I can do with the 54. The tx200 is significantly more comfortable either way.

    4.) Accuracy. Using the most accurate pellets (I tried about 20 varieties) and the best conditions, the tx200 is perfectly accurate. The 54 is about 90 – 95% as accurate, yet there are flyers which are not accounted for by pellet weight variation. The tx200 is as accurate as my .22 Zasadny Rapid out to 45 yards.

  2. B.B. and Dr.G.,

    Good morning gentlemen. Interesting comments Dr.G. and thank you for your review/comparison. B.B. it’s always nice to get back home from a trip. You’ve got us all wondering what you’re going to be pulling out of the hat.

    Mr B.

  3. I used Pneumatics all my life. Tried three springers over the weekend to see if I liked them. Do all springers react the same way on firing? With a jump? One was a CZ, one a Chinese and one a Russian. Pneumatics shoot with just a pop. No harsh jump. Right now I’m leaning toward buying another Pneumatic.

  4. Hi BB,
    It was good to see you again. I always enjoy talking with you. Maybe I’ll get to shoot my Wischo 55 and my pre-safety R-7 today. It was a good show for me. I got the Wischo 55, the pre-safety R-7, a 22 cal P1 needing a little work, and a Ted Williams CR 150 that needs a lot of refinishing plus grips. I also picked up a SS1 scope, pellets, a scope mount, a magazine, and a hat from Randy Mitchel. I also sold 9 pellet pouches. Most of all, enjoyed seeing and talking to lots of friends.

  5. I have three air rifles: one a Crosman 1077 CO2; one a Remington Airmaster 77 mult pump; and one a Beeman model 1024 springer. If I had to choose only one of these, it would be the Remington every time.It is quiet,accurate,it’s the least pellet picky,and, most importantly, it’s the most consistantly accurate gun of this group.The Beeman is driving me nuts.I can shoot to five shot groups, one after the other, with the same pellets.One group might be 3/6″ center to center, the next might be 1 1/2″.Very maddening.The Airmaster, at five pumps,just does it all.If you want to hunt, pump it up to as many as ten pumps.n The CO2 gun, of course, is about useless in colder weather, and runs low on CO2 and then the group starts walking down the target as power runs low. I have got pretty good groups with all three guns, but with the Remington, a called flyer might be 1/8″ away from the rest of the one hole, or elongated one hole, group, while a flyer with the other two guns seems to happen for no reason, and might be 1-2 inches away from the main group.And the Remington is the same gun as the Crosman 2100B, so I can assume that gun to be a gem also.


  6. BB,

    Thanks for sharing Little Rock. I have to get to a show one of these days. Do they have provisions for testing a gun on a range before you buy?

    You buy so many guns I have to ask: when you bought your current house, did you buy it big enough to hold all your guns or did you buy a house so big that you feel like you HAVE to fill it with more? I picture, in my mind, a very long basement room with steel doors, lined with guns as far as the eye can see, with 1000 more empty racks at the end that beg filling.

    Dr. G, thanks for the TX200/54 comparison. I read your experiences with great interest. My own experience with springers is not very good compared with pneumatics. You apparently like springers and that may be in part because you have bought the very best or nearly so and had them tuned even more, whereas, I got hooked on pnu before I reached that stage. Someday, I would like to find and shoot a really good, smooth springer to see if I can, someday, return from the DarkSide.

    Interesting. I’ve been thinking of getting a .22 barrel for my Talon.


  7. Jon,
    I’m having the same problem you are only with a new 1077. Mine is even worse because it’ll walk all around the bull and never go in. I’ll get two or three together then it’ll just start walking around. I’ve tried several different pellets. None of my other guns act this way. I’ve been putting off calling PA because I want to give the gun a fair chance but I think its trial is at an end.

    I have a question. I’m still learning air gun terms – I’ve heard the term “called flyer” used many times on this blog. What is the difference between a “flyer” and a “called flyer”? Or is there any? Anybody?


  8. Chuck:

    Great question on flyers. They drive me nuts, and I don’t quite know when to think it’s my fault. Coming from rimfire shooting, this is one of the few things I dislike about airguns. Hope someone of you experts has a good answer.


  9. Chuck, I believe a ‘called flier’ is one in which the shooter makes a mistake just as the shot is going off – jerking the gun, or something similar – and realizes it before even seeing where the shot lands. It cannot be blamed on the gun or the ammo.

    The mechanical dynamics of a spring airgun are considerably more complex than those of a rimfire gun, so there’s more room for something to go wrong or for something to be inconsistent from one shot to the next. Some guns are a lot less prone to it than others, and there are no hard-and-fast rules that let you determine how a certain gun will behave until you actually shoot it. Generally speaking, lighter breakbarrels with high power tend to be the hardest to shoot well, but there are even exceptions to that.

  10. jon. I purchased a Beeman 1024 about 18 months ago and got rid of it the day my Slavia 630 arrived.
    There is no way you can be accurate with the trigger on the 1024…it’s the worst trigger I’ve ever experienced.
    The only way I can discribe it is that if felt like sandpaper, very gritty and it had to be at least 8-10 lbs.
    The Slavia on the other hand is a joy. Like you I found that with the Beeman, even with the scope it came with, keeping 5 shots in the bull at 10m (I was using a 25ft rapid pistol target) was nearly impossible.
    With the Slavia I have no problem putting all 5 shots in the size of a dime at 10m with open sights.

  11. BB,
    Coming through that deluge makes you antediluvian, I guess:).

    Glad you’re back safely. I enjoyed the video tour last year, and look forward to another.

  12. CJr,

    You’re going to love the .22 barrel cause it will do everything the other will plus it can be “dialed up” with the power wheel and heavier pellets to hit alot harder than the .177 ever will. I’ll predict that, if you get the .22 barrel you’ll love it for both hunting and plinking. However, it’ll really comes into its own on HPA.

    A called flyer, is it a plane that comes for us like a taxi? No, it’s a pellet that I know is going to be antisocial and miss the spot where the rest if his friends hit the target because of a mistake that I made and I call it as a miss before we pull the target. call out to you miss before we see the target.

    A flyer is when the cross hairs stay on the bull, trigger squeeze perfectly, follow through, cross hairs never left the bull, but the pellet’s hole appears 1″ to the left. Go figure.

    Mr B.

  13. Re:model 60's
    If cleaning doesn't help the failure to feed on last shot it's probably due to a weak tube spring.some of these rifles
    sit around loaded for years.actually found one in a pawn shop once that was fully loaded:>O.We all know by now springs under pressure tend to take a set.The cheap fix is to shim the spring at the cap end or extend the plastic probe at the chamber end.
    usually only takes 1/16to 1/8" to work.

    Re:Desert Eagles
    I love these pistols but only for plinking.Size and weight exclude them from carry and defense roles
    for me.If they fit your hands right the recoil is no more of a problem than from a revolver of the same caliber but it does have a very different feel and cycle.
    The only problem I've seen or heard of is from using improper loads.Mostly low powered hand loads.

    Thanks for taking us to the Airgun Shows,I've been to lots of gun shows,some even have a few AG's.but I've never been lucky enough to go to a real AG show in person.I feel so deprived:(


  14. B.B.

    What is that bit about shooting out the red star on the midway from the gun that looks like a Tommy gun?

    On the subject of fliers, David Tubb says that trying to call your shots is one of the best ways to develop follow through; it's supposed to happen automatically.

    More words of wisdom from Tubb. Derrick, hang on to your post front sight for the IZH 61, Tubb claims that great scores are shot competitively with the post front. His theory is that the post allows you to focus on a point (6 o clock hold) whereas the globe requires you to evaluate an area for thickness of the band around the bull. If you go with the globe, his advice is to go big instead of small.

    I know that airgunners generally don't shoot prone, but anyway, the Tubb prone position is almost lined up directly behind the rifle which is kind of a surprise. I thought that the spine made a slight angle with the rifle. For sitting, he advises taking the cross-legged position and then extending the lead (left leg for righties) towards the target for maximum stability. Wayne, maybe you can try this out for field target.

    BG_Farmer, thanks for the reference to the Marlin 99A1 which I had missed. I'll have a look.

    Tunnel Engineer, how could I have forgotten the CZ rimfire rifles. The word is that they are like mini-Mausers which is great for accuracy, all-around performance, and history. They're even nice-looking to my eyes, but they're a bit pricey.

    Herb and Jane, okay you win with the energy stored in the molecular structure (bonds and steric effects) as another factor besides the kinetic energy of the gas molecule that determines how a propellant works. I hadn't thought of that. BUT, if there are so many subtle effects at work on such a small scale, it seems a little dubious to me that sheer speed of the molecule is the only or major determinant of gas performance. >:-)

    Jane, for .357 my reading suggests the S&W 27/28 as the paradigmatic police revolver. What kind of pistols do you have? I thought that the Desert Eagle is .50 caliber which sounds like a lot. Have you considered .44 magnum?

    Dr. G thanks for your comparative evaluation of the RWS 54 and TX200 which I would certainly never experience on my own. I had flirted with the thought of getting a TX200 as a type of best gun. It's certainly cheaper than the Anschutz 1907. The big appeal of the Anschutz is that I had one (a 1407) as a high school shooter when I didn't have a clue, so it would be a shame not have one in my more improved mature phase. It is surprising what nice guns many high schoolers have. I've heard of high school shooters with Feinwerkbaus.

    Kevin, I reached the part in the book about attacks by black bears. So, they do happen. And it sounds like if the black bear is out to get you, you had better give up. The word is that they are utterly silent, approach methodically from behind, and deliver an instant and debilitating attack to the head or neck. They're like an assassin, and you will never see them coming. But they're very rare. Something like one thousandth of one percent of human encounters in the last century fit this profile. As for why the bears do this, study of hormonal and behavioral indicators lead the authors to believe that the attacking bears are insane(!) The psychos of the bear population.


  15. Matt:

    Thanks for your input – the Desert Eagle is available in .357, .44, or .50AE. At $1.50/round, I'll not likely try the .50AE, (and I don't even want to think about recoil!)

    My current collection includes Ruger & Browning 22LRs, and I much like them because of the fixed barrel. I have also the HiPower and a Sig226, among others, but the action on these leaves the "purist" in me wanting.

    At some point I'd like to try the S&W revolver, but I was just fascinated by the engineering in the DE. I had never seen one or known anyone who shot one.



  16. JT,
    Good point. Also, I wipe off the little red pusher after much shooting, since it gets fouled and can stick in the inner magazine tube.

    Do you have a 60? Since airguns and my “discovery” of high-test moly paste I’ve been thinking that it would be great in the action of a 60, but I’ve only heard about moly’d bullets, not actions:).

  17. Jane,

    The only person I know with a .44Mag DE is a serious advocate of spray-and-pray. His son, who is more level-headed, told me that they had never managed to hit a single thing they aimed at with it…and we’re not talking long range shooting. Just for what its worth; they do look cool, though:).

  18. B.B.,
    Got a question on ballistics. Lets say i had a Gamo CFX set up to shoot Crosman Premier Hollow Points at 900 fps. If i shot a crow in the head at 20 yards, how much energy would be left after the pellet exited? Also at what range would the pellet not habe enough energy to exit?
    Nice guns too. Thanks,

  19. Matt61,
    I thought you’d get your answer about the midway red star by now. I’ll lurk a little longer. I get the feeling some people don’t want to divulge their age. I’ll bet one of your previous generation relatives could tell you. I know what it is because I…um…read about it in a very old book…um…yea…that’s it..an old book…

  20. CJr,

    I thought that the midway red star game was started by the followers of Chaiing Kai-shek when they immigrated to the USA after losing to Chairman Mao.

    Mr B.

  21. BB,

    The buyer of the $50.00 Tempest is elated. The other deal he had, while more pricey was still quite pleasing, although it received an eye roll from the wife.

    I enjoyed talking with you and thanks for the advice.

  22. Matt 61: I did actually win the prize for the pretty girl by shooting out the star on the midway once. It sure took some practice. Those were fully automatic BB guns that looked like a Tommy gun. You got so many shots for a couple bucks, and you got a prize for shooting out all of the small star on the target. The trick was not to just yank the trigger and spray. You’d use up all your BB’s to soon. You had to learn it and coax it to control it. Robert

  23. Maybe we should start a rock band and call ourselves the Midway Red Stars. We could work in band practice while waiting for the CO2 guns to warm up.

    Actually Midway Red Stars sounds more like a roller derby team.

  24. Since we are still a little off topic in some of these comments, my Marlin 60 does not fail to feed, it fails to eject, but only on the last round in a magazine of 17. Moreover, that final spent cartridge is often mangled. Is this because of dirty innards? The parts of the action I can reach, I clean with solvent, toothbrush, cotton swabs, and poly picks, so that shouldn’t be the problem. The red plastic pusher in the tube seems flimsy, but it does not appear to stick.


  25. PurcHawk,
    I sounds to me like the next cartridge is helping the spent one to clear somehow. When there is no “next” there is nothing to help the last one out. Is there supposed to be something on the magazine spring that resembles a “last” cartridge?


  26. BGFarmer
    Yup got my 1st Marlin model 60 when I
    was 6.About’73 I think,completely wore that one out over the years.
    I’ve probly had close to a dozen since then.Pawn shops wound up with all but the last when I ran short of money.Bought my current one about 10 yrs.ago 15rd.tube with the secondary bolt hold open button in front of the trigger guard.I’ll try to keep this one til it wears out too.The worst thing to me about current models is the front sight hood,can’t even find mine anymore it’s been gone so long.

    I’ve also got a low end Henry LA tube fed that is a sweet shooter that takes any length .22 in any order you want to fire them.This one is also a keeper.

    On the Desert Eagles,Ive seen some folks with large hands who can do almost as well at ~25 yds.as I can with a Barretta(Sp?)92 FS.
    I don’t care for the M9 but the Italian 92 can hold it’s own out to 100 yds. very well.Soup cans at that range are no problem from a rest.Must be the 6″bbl.and the well balanced recoil spring.


  27. Purchawk: Your ejector which fits into a small groove on the left side of the feed throat and is an extension of the cartridge lifter spring, may have become deformed and is out of place. This could be your problem. Look to see if it is not in that groove. You may be able to reshape it and put it back in place. Robert

  28. Matt61,

    There’s no doubt some people prefer a front post insert–I do too for some types of situations. Back when I used an aperture in the field, it obscured less of the target and was easier to hold over or under for ranging targets at different distances. At least, now I have insert options with my IZH-61. However, I’ve still yet to meet a 10 meter or small bore shooter who wasn’t using a globe insert in the front sight. Maybe it’s the fixed target distance thing?
    Oddly, when I was shooting a lot of bullseye pistol, I always set up my red dot sight for a six o’clock hold. I don’t know if that was a carryover from using open sights for so long or if it was something else. My dominant eye never liked aligning the red dot in the very center of the black bull. My eye (maybe my brain…) said that was an impossibility. It was a simple matter to adjust the group to strike about an inch or an inch and a quarter high at 25 yards. On my 10 meter rifles, I’ve no problem aligning the globe around the bull. I’ve got other, more serious accuracy related problems, but that’s not a major one. I’ll swap to a thin post next time I shoot the IZH and see how it goes. I think it’s nice to have each rifle set up a bit differently from the others. What’s the point in having different rifles if they’re all set up the same?

    Matt, you’re dead on the money about follow through. If you don’t follow through on every single shot, you’re effectively training yourself to not follow through. And let me know how that works out for you.



  29. PurcHawk,
    What I’ve been calling a stovepipe is a failure to eject completely, often with the sideways, partially ejected round crushed by the bolt. I’ve never had it happen except on the last round with a really dirty gun.

    While it could be a symptom of a more serious wear, mine have always cleared up with partial disassembly and a thorough cleaning. As Chuck suggests also, the little red pusher should be acting like another cartridge, but as the insides get fouled up with residue, the pusher can get tight in the inner tube. The spring in the magazine tube could also be weak, as JT pointed out. Taking the action out and removing the bolt is not difficult at all. There’s a lot of space for crud that you just can’t reach otherwise.

    That’s a lot of shooting to wear one out:). Now I know who to ask.

  30. BGFarmer
    When I say wore out I mean very little rifling left in the bbl.and
    all springs so weak they may as well have not been there.The finish on wood and metal was also very bad.
    Of course I wish now that I had just
    rebuilt and kept it,if for sentimental reasons only.Oh well live and learn.HOPEFULLY!


  31. I take it that the red star on the midway is some sort of gallery carnival game.

    BG_Farmer, the Marlin M99A1 is a mighty obscure rifle with no pictures and no listing on the Marlin website. That business about spraying and praying with a .44 magnum Desert Eagle cracks me up. Sounds expensive and a reason to get people qualified at a shooting range.

    Jane, thanks for the report on your handguns. A Ruger Single Six is on my list but I take it that you are referring to the famous Mark I auto series. What is your notion of "purity" in actions? Would it be a 1911 which you didn't list? If you don't have one, I strongly recommend the S&W 1911, a great shooting, reliable, custom-level gun for a decent price.


  32. Jane,

    I think a .357 mag. revolver is a great next purchase.. that’s what I’ve done, with the Dan Wesson .. it shoots mild .38 special to full blown .357 mags..
    the double action trigger is almost as fast as a semi-auto and easier to be on target I’d bet.

    And it a round fails, just pull the trigger again.. your not stuck with a jamb..

    Hey All!!
    Air gun collector purchase..

    I’ve been looking for a .22 cal PCP… almost bought another one just like I helped Kevin buy.. a AAs410 thumbhole.. but..
    .. this came up..

    “RARE and COLLECTIBLE” RWS Excalibre
    There were only about 10 of these guns imported into the US by AoA. This is THE gun that was used by AoA as their model to represent the Excalibre in their promos. And this is the gun that is on the cover of the Excalibre Owner’s Manuals. Here is this gun in the AoA ad:

    http://www.airgunsofarizona.com/rwspromo.htm .

    These were made by FX of Sweeden.. similar to the Timberwolf, but adjustable power 12 to 30 foot lbs. much larger air tank.. 100 shots at 12 ft lbs.
    They had to discontinue them before they got started, because they couldn’t get the stocks.. that were:
    GRADE 3 TURKISH WALNUT STOCK. also.. a Lothar Walther barrel and fully adjustable trigger. It comes with a factory full barrel shroud, the 4″ LDC, brass fill probe, brass fill cap, and 2, 8-shot magazines. The gun is in 99+% condition (one tiny mark on the receiver, which cannot be shown in a picture).


    He said it only has 15 shots or so, it’s been a safe queen!

    so now I have to decide if I will shoot it or “safe queen” it some more… input please?

  33. PurcHawk,

    You need to invest in a .22 firearm disassembly manual. They cover lots of different actions. You need to disassemble that model 60 and clean it thoroughly.

    I had a 60 and when it got dirty it gummed up. In fact, you have defined tomorrow’s blog!


  34. Hello. I was the avid reader that bought your UTG demo and I was also lucky enough to score the Diana 6M that walked in on Saturday during the downpour. Great buy even though it needs seals. First time to the show and all I can say is they need to be more active in advertising it since it was very productive, or deductive if you view if from my bank account’s perspective.

    Take care and thanks for the tip on detunning the 460 magnum.

  • Shipping Restrictions

    It's important to know that due to state and local laws, there are certain restrictions for various products. It's up to you to research and comply with the laws in your state, county, and city. If you live in a state or city where air guns are treated as firearms you may be able to take advantage of our FFL special program.

    U.S. federal law requires that all airsoft guns are sold with a 1/4-inch blaze orange muzzle or an orange flash hider to avoid the guns being mistaken for firearms.
