2022 Texas Airgun Show

Texas show Eddie shoots
Eddie called Pyramyd AIR and salesperson Ruth Kass put him in touch with me. I took my TX200 Mark III for him to try. I hope he becomes a reader of this blog!

  • What about BB’s table?
  • Summary

This year’s Texas Airgun Show was the biggest and best one ever run. The day was pleasant, by which I mean that all Texans complained that it was too hot. If they aren’t doing that they are complaining about the cold. Whatever the weather, Texans complain.

Came from all over

People came from North Carolina, Ohio, Arizona and perhaps from as far as Canada. The majority of the  dealers were set up by 8 a.m. and the crowd started arriving at 9. This was the most organized airgun show I have seen, with guides to help with parking so nobody felt rushed. The number of volunteers was large and many of them were airgunners themselves. So it felt like the show started a long time before the public began coming in.

The Arlington Sportsman’s Club bent over backwards to give us a great show and show organizer, Jeff Cloud, went beyond the call of duty to make it a success.

The nature of the show

Every airgun show has a unique nature. This one had a couple. The first that I notice was a dichotomy of pricing. Some airguns were priced very low while others were clear out of sight. I was surprised when I saw the low prices, because at other shows that isn’t the norm. I thought I would be the only seller with great prices, but that wasn’t the case at all. Right across the aisle from me was a table with some wonderful low prices. And, just to be honest, not all of my prices were that great, either. More on that in a bit.

All sorts of Plainsman BB pistols for $35 a pop!

Another facet of this show was the presence of oodles of FWB 124s! Yep — if you wanted a 124, this was the show to find them. The reasonable ones ranged from $295 to $325 for the 124 Sport (the one without checkering) and a Deluxe for $350. Those are very decent prices! There was one Deluxe with a scope for $850, but that was the only one priced that high.

Texas show 124
There were several nice FWB 124s at this show for very reasonable prices. I finally talked one of our readers into getting this one at the end of the show.

I had to restrain myself because I am a sap for 124s. Just like Diana 27s, I can’t leave them alone. But as luck would have it, I came home with one, anyway, and I didn’t buy it. No — I didn’t steal it! A man named Glenn walked into the show with a nice 124 Deluxe and asked me if there was anyone at the show who worked on them. I sent him around the room with a few suggestions but when he couldn’t find anyone he asked me who was the best person in the Dallas Fort Worth area to work on one.

People offered him money for his rifle but he told me he just wanted to shoot it. Glenn is a firearm shooter who wanted to see what our side of the street looked like. I talked to him many times over the period of an hour and finally I broke down and told him I would reseal it for him.

It looks like his rifle has the original piston seal that dry rots over time. I know I have reported on a lot of 124s over the years, but Glenn needed help and I thought some of you new readers might like to look inside one. I told him it would take to the end of October, but I hope to get it done before then. It doesn’t launch a pellet right now, so the seal will be first, then the velocity test and finally a short accuracy test.

Outside

AirForce Airguns was set up in a large tent right outside the building and they had stacks of guns to sell.

Texas show AirForce
AirForce was on deck with plenty of rifles and related items for sale.

Right next to the AirForce booth was the Firebird target booth. This is an airgun target that explodes, but unlike Tannerite does not have to be mixed. They gave a demonstration to the public and the boom was deafening. They also landed their helicopter and gave a few rides over the ranges.

Texas show Firebird
Firebird targets were showing their airgun targets and demonstrating them to the public.

Some dealers reserved too late for the indoor tables and were located on the porch outside the hall. I saw several incredible things out there, including some early multi-pumps that I haven’t seen at a show in quite some time.

Texas show Apache
When was the last time you saw an Apache west of the Mississippi? And just above it is a Rochester. These are somewhat common in the east but not at all common in Texas.

On that same table was something I have never seen — a leather holster for a Hy Score 800 pistol.

Texas show holster emboss
Yes, it really is a Hi Score pistol holster.

On this same table I saw a Daisy Number 40 with the original bayonet. The BB gun was very clean looking and to see an original bayonet and not a reproduction is something special. The bayonet is worth more than the gun.

Texas show Daisy 40
A clean Daisy Number 40 has the original bayonet. The rubber tip is missing. Yes, that is a Daisy 21 double barrel below.

Starboard Rower

Reader Starboard Rower brought a pristine VZ 35 to the show — not to sell but to show to interested parties, including BB. It’s the cleanest 35 I have ever seen.

Hunting Guide

Larry Hannusch

Of all the guys in the airgun world, Larry Hannusch is at the top. I always said that if he collected Sheridan Supergrades he would own a left-handed one in .22 caliber, plus the drawings for them and the spare parts to build five more. So at this show Larry showed off his Swiss K31 airgun trainer. Now most guys including BB would show you a device that slips into a K31. He had one of those but he also had an entire K31 that a gunsmith had converted into a dedicated trainer. He says more exist, but this is the only one he has seen.

Texas show K31 trainer
Pull back on the sidelever bolt handle of this trainer and a small breech pops up for loading the pellet. If you know your K31 trainers I bet you haven’t seen this one!

Shoot a Girardoni?

Then Larry asks if we want to shoot a civilian copy of a Girardoni. Suddenly I found myself standing with 10 other guys who materialized out of nowhere. This rifle is one of the knockoffs that were made by former Girardoni workers after the Austrian military contract ran out. It’s .47 caliber.

Texas show Larry
While the public was shooting the Texan and other big bore airguns, BB and several other guys were shooting a vintage Girardoni knockoff from around 1800-1810.

Prizes

Another feature of this show is huge number of the raffle prizes they give away. Every hour on the half-hour Jeff Cloud draws for numerous raffle prizes donated by show sponsors like AirForce, Pyramyd AIR, Umarex, Airguns of Arizona and others. It’s something that keeps people on their toes.

Another lucky winner won an Umarex Gauntlet 2. These are the kind of prizes that keep people at the show!

Door Prize

The raffle tickets you had to buy but every attendee and dealer got a ticket for the door prize. This year it was a scoped .457 TexanSS big bore rifle plus ammo to go with it.

The door prize was a scoped .457 TexanSS with ammo.

What about BB’s table?

I promised you guys I would list my airguns that remained, if any after the show. I won’t bore you with the mundane stuff. Sorry, RidgeRunner, the two IZH 61s sold within 30 minutes of me setting up. HOWEVER:

At the end of the show I was amazed to see that my IZH 46 (not an M, but it was resealed two years ago) was still on my table. I priced it at $400 and thought it was a bargain, based on what I see online. I see an M was recently priced at $675, and my pistol shoots within 30 f.p.s. of the M.

My IZH 532 target rifle priced at $450 lasted all the show and went home with me, as well. Where yah gonna find another one — with the serial-numbered box, plus the weights for the barrel?

My Webley Junior, priced at $200, also came home. The one online right now that is just for parts is priced at $250 and mine works. Well, I’m keeping it for now and I will work on it, because it does shoot weakly.

I over-priced the heck out of my Daisy 853. I remember a few years back when used ones fetched $300. So I put $175 on mine that has been resealed. However I see on eBay where people are asking $100.

I priced a nice Winchester 353 (Diana model 5) pistol at $75. I thought that one would sell for sure, because non-Winchesters sell for $125 online. Nope!

I put the Haenel 312 out for $250 which is less than I paid for it. The only comment I got was that it’s a little heavy for a target rifle. Huh?

And I put out my Sheridan Supergrade — just to test the crowd. I priced it at $1,800, which is peanuts compared to the one that sold recently on eBay for $2,500. Mine is earlier than that one and I believe it’s nicer. It sure is more powerful. I had a little interest on that one from some guys who knew what a Supergrade is, but she is still mine.

Summary

The guys who attended know what a great show this was. Maybe “they” didn’t have that left-handed Tasmanian Blamaflitch you’ve been searching for, but there was an awful lot to like at this show!

  1. How did I miss the Girardoni Shooting chance?

    I talked to Larry several times and missed that….

    Yea it was a weird show.
    I sold all of my full auto BB guns, and sold a couple of crosman mark 1’s , and a Smith & Wesson 79G at about what they cost me, and gave a couple of crosman multi pumps to attendees that had their grand kids in tow, so the youngsters left with an airgun, and all it cost was a handshake…

    I watched a Mac1 LD across the isle for $200, no price on it, but when asked he would tell you, it sat there for 4 hours, before I offered $180 and he took it, and gave me two hangy tanks as well.

    I was offered a box of LD parts by an dealer for $100, I got all the parts to build a complete LD, Except for the frame, and I have a frame.
    In that box was the walther polygon barrel and shroud, all the internals, the LD stock, that sells for $265 by itself, regulated hpa tanks, and the adapters, and a lot more.

    With a frame, the contents of that box would sell for $750 assembled from Mac1.

    I guess what comes around goes around, as we were packing up after the show, a friend gifted me 2 “project guns” he was tired of carrying around to the airgun shows.

    Can someone help me find barrels for a Daystate Wolverine, in .22, and a Daystate Huntsman classic in .22 as well?
    I am in uncharted territory with Daystates…

    Tom I had promised the wife I would curb my spending, and I kept my word for the show, but I do want that IZH rifle eventually…

    Ian.

    • Ian,

      If you really want to get rid of one of them, I would be more than happy to take one or both of those Daystates off of your hands. Do I have any barrels? No, but I do know where to get LW barrels. I also have a pretty good idea where to get a Daystate barrel.

      • BB, Unfortunately, I got in to work this morning and a couple of trucks had some unexpected mechanical setbacks so the 532 is just not in the budget for a while. If it goes to Ian, then at least it’s staying ‘in the family’ so to speak. 🙂

          • No worries, it’s all part of the business. We really do try to make our cars the best they can be and sometimes that means unexpected costs for me but it’s worth it in the end if our customers are happy and come back. The cars have to come first, I just get some leftover gravy for my toys. Back to topic at hand…I do wish that 853 had been a 753. I shouldered it a couple of times but as you saw, I am not a little guy and the short LOP just killed it for me, still I would have bought it at $100 (wink). You had some neat stuff there for sure!!

            I also came about a half a minute away from asking to buy your wool military blankets that you used for table cloths. Heh, Nice ones!

          • BB and Honest Bobs Used Car Sales —
            About the Daisy 853:
            BB
            “… a few years back when used ones fetched $300. So I put $175 on mine that has been resealed.”
            Have you noticed that CMP is still selling resealed 853s? The price has gone up to $125, but the one I got a few years ago had a really nice reworked trigger – better than new!
            https://thecmp.org/sales-and-service/sporter-air-rifles/

            Honest Bob
            “… I do wish that 853 had been a 753. I shouldered it a couple of times but as you saw, I am not a little guy and the short LOP just killed it for me…”
            I’m surprised that you’re finding a different LOP on the 853 and 753. My 853 has a 14” LOP with both spacers in place, and it’s easy to make more spacers if the original spacers are missing or if you want a longer LOP

            Cheers,
            Guy

  2. Nice to see the many pictures, especially the ones that show more than just airguns. I learnt, for example that there were a lot of men in t-shirts. 🙂

    PS Tom Gaylord (B.B. Pelletier), what was it like to actually shoot a Girardoni?

  3. BB,

    I like dealing with Larry. He was at the last NC show, and I picked up a Luznik from him. It has a horribly long first stage, but it is a pretty accurate pistol. That trigger is one of my future projects. If I can get it working right, that pistol will most definitely be a keeper. I hope that Larry will show up at the one this October.

    I knew those 61’s would not last long. That is why I tried to get one of them. I am a bit surprised that 46 and that 532 came home with you. I am probably glad I was not there. That Junior of yours would have probably gone home with me. I seem to have developed a taste for Webleys. Yogi, you need to get over your fear of getting pinched and get one of these things. You will have fun with it.

  4. I’m glad you all enjoyed the show. I was wondering if there were any Sig ASP20 rifles for sale and what was the going price? With Shootski’s regular reports on his pair of ASP20s, I am growing weary of living vicariously. I would love to add one in .22 to my growing collection. See, B.B., you are not the only enabler!

    Otherwise, I have a growing collection of Winchester-branded Dianas. Next on the list: a 450 (wink wink RidgeRunner) and a 427 (bow to B.B.). But I can afford to be patient because the 435 is wonderful to shoot.

    • Roamin Greco,

      I will try to not be vexatious to your Airgunning spirit.
      My real point is that we airgunners need to be more open minded.
      This is a great read about the point i have been trying to make with the SIG ASP20s of late: https://www.airgundepot.com/vault/articles/can-a-regular-airgun-shoot-slugs/
      Hopefully more manufacturers will continue to realize/comprehend the historical basis for why the pellet optimized powerplant and probably more importantly the pellet optimized barrel rifling design needs improvement to shoot bullets (slugs) well. I’m interested in Sporters PCP, MULTIPUMPS, SPRING PISTON (probably mostly gas spring) and not 10M target rifles or short range Plinkers shooting bullets (slugs) in designed from the ground up airguns for bullets/slugs.

      I see the potential of projectile design knowledge helping improve the Big Bore designs as well.

      shootski

      • No worries. If I was interested in long range airgun performance, I would be right there with you on the dark side and with powerful springers and boolets. I think the ASP20 and airguns in that power range would be my limit, though. I am also attracted to the ASP20 mainly for its innovative features, which I first read about when researching airguns a couple of years ago, and that’s how I found this blog.

        You never know, I may join you yet. In the meantime, I always enjoy talking about airguns of all kinds.

        • Same here Roamin, I passed on the ASP20 due to one stupid video review that praised it but the feller couldn’t shoot for beans or had a bad one and I went with something else. The ASP20, especially in .22 is my one gun, the one that got away, bucket list type of gun. I would have paid probably up to $600 for one with the Whiskey scope. Maybe even a touch more in the moment. The only hesitation I have is finding maintenance parts, seals etc. for one, if I ever find one that is.

          • Bob, I went to the Sig website and found the ASP20 and asked the following question and got the following answer:
            “Q: Are spare parts available for the ASP20? Spare gas ram, piston seal, and breach seal? How about the synthetic stock?
            SIG Sauer CS09/28/22 Yotpo
            A: Unfortunately we do not offer any replacement parts for our line of airguns at this point in time and it remains to be seen if this will be something that will be available for purchase as a separate item in the future. We do offer repair services for our airguns through our Customer Service Department at 603-610-3000 and use option 1 to speak with a Customer Service Representative. Hours of operation are Monday-Friday between the hours of 8:30am-5:00pm Eastern Time.”

      • I read the Airgun Depot article, and while it is interesting, I take issue with the statement that the pellet will hit the ground before an equally weighted slug. Aside from that error, it is truly an interesting time to be an airgunner.

        • RG
          Although I didn’t read the article, a statement like that could be about the earlier energy loss of pellets vs slugs due to ballistic differences (BC…)
          If I misunderstood your point though pls excuse me.

          • No excuse needed, Vasili. Actually I was referring to high school physics where we learned two objects of different masses still fall at the same rate, even if one object is traveling forward (ignoring wind resistance from falling). Gravity acts on all objects. So if a pellet and a slug dropped out of your hand would hit the floor at the same time, then one shot out of a gun would still hit the floor ar the same time as one dropped from your hand from the same height, except the slug would be on the floor way over there. I tested this in college with objects dropped from our high rise apartment window, and it worked pretty well. They all hit the pavement at about the same time. Easy money on that bet.

        • RG
          Actually what I had in mind is that a slug would reach further than a same weight wadcutter pellet fired from the same gun.
          Anyway physics were not to my liking in school, from what I recall 42 years later…
          Thanks for the clarifications though.

    • RG,

      Very likely. Diana rebranded for many, including Winchester. Apparently, these were sold by Stoeger. If you can find one branded Peerless, some collector out there might think it is worth something.

      Many of today’s Dianas are rebranded Chinese Snowpeaks. The Avenger and Aspen are rebranded by Nova out of China. What’s in a name? Not much nowadays.

  5. BB,

    Thank you for a very nice go through report. It would be a very hard day for my wallet – visiting airgun show like this 🙂 I would have to buy one of these FWB124, nobody could stop me from doing that! 🙂
    Anyway, there is also a lot going on in Germany regarding shows like this. Maybe a bit smaller but – I don’t even look for the information, the reason is simple: potential BMW (brake my wallet).

    • Tomek, I love your humor. We are going to have to start a catalog of “Tomek-isms”:
      1. Denial to the Trash
      2. BMW: Break my wallet
      3. ?
      Who knows? Perhaps someday we will see a blog with a round up of your greatest hits!

      • Roamin, Shootski,

        Heheh there is a lot about BMW, personally I like “bought my wife” very much 🙂 Shootski – yes, they are all still the same. Most powerful is “Bring Mich Werkstatt” (like: get me to the workshop) 🙂

        Roamin – now I’m on the new level of “we are still trying to be the best parents”. Two boys (5yo and 9yo) are on the way to proof we can’t. The actual Tomek-ism is: “with children is worse than with children”. 🙂 And… “when our kids will leave the house I will leave it too”. 🙂

  6. I saw an interesting peep sight in Roamin Greco’s link (an advertising article, headlined “Peerless Air Rifles”, from the publication “America’s Great Gun House”, from 1957).

    It said: “…With a simple movement a peep sight disc may be attached to the micrometer rear sight which is similarly adjustable both for windage and elevation. …”.
    I like the idea but wonder why this is not in more widespread use today?

    • hi3,

      Read these reports:

      /blog/2014/04/diana-72-youth-target-rifle-part-1/?swcfpc=1

      /blog/2020/05/the-diana-model-50-underlever-part-5/?swcfpc=1

      Why aren’t manufacturers doing this today? Probably because scopes are seen as the most popular sighing instruments. If open sights were more popular, no doubt these would return.

      BB

      • Ah yes, that makes sense. Thank you Tom Gaylord (B.B. Pelletier).

        My ‘Diana Mod. 50E’ does not have a sight- or scope rail (pictured is it’s elevation adjustable rear sight).
        What a difference an ‘E’ makes, eh ?! 🙂

    • The Model 50 Diana as you noted had quite an interesting rear sight. It was modular! The rifle had two rails for the sight, one closer to the shooter’s eye for the peep sight configuration and one a bit further away for the open iron sight configuration. The adjustments also were very precise and locked with a flat spring that had a square notch that would fit into a square section of the windage adjustment screw. But that seems to be the weak spot of the spring for those who would try to turn that adjustment without pressing down on the spring.

      • That’s interesting Roamin Greco.
        I would probably have tried to make adjustments without depressing that spring and then examined why something didn’t work or break.

        Good advice for if I ever stumble across this rear sighting system, thanks. 🙂

    • Brent,

      No, I didn’t. I would have mentioned it but I just didn’t want to turn the blog into BB’s sales page. Actually, the Sharp is probably the best bargain I had on my table. But how many people on the planet even know what it is?

      BB

  7. A good time was obviously had by all and that is what matters. Of course, there is fun in the buying and the selling and getting educated. Getting educated is FM’s main goal for the coming Newton NC show. Hope to enjoy some real facetime with any member of this blog fraternity who makes it there.

    That’s a fine-looking VZ 35, Starboard Rower! Woulda enjoyed shooting the Girardoni; how many times will one have the opportunity to experience a genuine, working, historical artifact like that?

    • Thank you, FM!

      I was especially grateful for the opportunity to connect with others from the blog here. Ian, Tom, Larry… I learn so much from conversations with them. Kind like, well… the blog! 😉

      Larry was generous to bring those Swiss trainers. What a treat! Seeing them firsthand, and the actions work, was really something else. If ever I had the “trainer” bug… it’s as bad as ever now! I will work to try to find some of these Swiss trainers for the collection here. Mrs. StarboardRower would be supportive, I think.

  8. I drove down from Tulsa, OK and was glad I did. It was great meeting Tom and Ian there. I kept thinking about the tips from the primer blog, not to go in with blinders on searching for the ONE. (An ASP20 in my case, which I can confirm, there were none there) I actually had a handful on my short list after an hour of gawking at everything. I waffled for 3 hours on which one to get. The FWB 124 was tempting but I shoot lights out with my HW30s. A couple of very nice R1s, a bit out of my budget and I really don’t need another hard to cock magnum, a well worn but completely functional looking HW35 for under $200 was tempting as well. A pair of nice R10s as well. I almost went home with a HW95s but I thought it was high as I could buy a new one for about 50 bucks more. By the way, these were all on the SAME table!!

    So many good deals and cool guns there but it seemed like I already some version of each one already and just wanted something a little different than what I already had.

    I did come home with a gun though. A super clean 2018 Diana 48 side lever with about $240 bucks worth of UTG optics and mounts. Price? $250 total for everything. I feel like I stole it! It fit the bill of something different for me as it is a true made in Germany Diana, and a side lever both of which I do not have any of in my collection. It shoots very nicely too!

    I came really close to getting that IZH-46 from BB but I was short a bit on cash at that point later in the day. I did pick up a massive scope from BB that neither one of us knew anything about but for $20 bucks I thought it was worth a try. Turns out be a pretty nice off brand made by Barska. A few tins of pellets rounded out my treasure chest for the day.

    All in all it was a great experience and Jeff really did do a fantastic job organizing it. The show ran like a well oiled machine from an attendees perspective. He took my Crosman 102 and 157 home to repair for me as well. Great guy!

    Rob

  9. B.B., RidgeRunner and all, could you briefly explain the difference between the Webly Senior and Junior pistols? I will research the blog as well, but looking for a quick answer. Thanks!

  10. First off, let me say, great show. Jeff Cloud out did himself.
    Now what BB did not see was after he shot the Girardi and left the area to tend his table, Larry held the gun up to let anyone there who wanted to shoot it to do so. I don’t know about other shows, but here it is common, not the girardoni, but the including of others, the helping of one another.
    BB, thanks for informing me on what I need to get for my granddaughter, daisy 499b.

  11. Hi BB,
    I hated missing the show. I was still sick and didn’t feel like attending. I was hoping to get to see some friends and look over the things everyone bought. It’s a long time to wait until next year.
    David Enoch

  12. It was a great show. Definitely tip my hat to Jeff and all the great folks at Arlington Sportsman Club.
    I followed Tom’s lead and priced everything aggressively. But it’s dog eat dog at the air gun show.lol
    I was thrilled to get to meet and visit with Mike Baker from Arizona. He is one of the good guys helping us keep these old girls going with parts and knowledge. One of the go-to folks for Benjamin, Crosman, and Sheridan parts.
    Seeing all the folks I have met at other shows. There is a core group that always make the Texas and Arkansas shows. Also several folks from the blog and internet forums. It would be better if you weren’t constantly being bothered by people wanting to look at your stuff.
    I sold my FWB 124 and a few things.
    I bought one of Tom’s Baikal rifles, a Crosman 180 for $20 and another Russian rifle.
    The Russian rifle shoots with the most recoil I have ever felt from an air rifle.
    My one regret was not buying the Haenel 312. It makes for a long ride home.
    I did stay the night to see the field target the next day. It looks like a lot of fun.
    Pat Gray

  13. Agreed on all counts!

    A great show. Hats off to Jeff and his fellow organizers. After waiting 3 years, I was really looking forward to this one! It did not disappoint.

    Loved the opportunity to demo some new (high caliber) PCP’s. And loved the opportunity to demo the early-1800’s Giradoni-ish gun. Where else could you get that chance? Hats-off to people like Larry and Tom who teach and take time with the rest of us!

  14. B.B.
    You talked about several Plainsman BB pistol were at the gun show for $35 each. I’ve always been curious about those. Are they any good? Accurate (for a soda can bb pistol). I know they only had an 8 gr C02 Cart. They also had a high and low power. In fact a local gun shop has (or had) one in the box. But it was about $80. Reading the box it stated about the power it and and self defense! I had to laugh at that. These neat looking old pistols (Think Japanese Nambu & Colt Woodsman together)
    I was excited to search the blog and found where you did one on them! Time to read up.

    • Doc,

      Plainsman also made a 12-gram adaptor so regular CO2 cartridges could be used. They are excellent soda can pistols — that’s what they were made for.

      Self defense? I think not!
