    Default Swift training rifle model A

    Hi Gentlemen

    Again, its been a while! but I thought Ild post this as its fairly new and certainly a bit different. If the moderators deam it to be more suitably moved to a different category then please move it, I couldnt quite figure which to insert it under and this seemed most apprporiate.

    I had been after a P14 or P17 for a while, but prices are a little off-putting at the moment, however! this appeared at a local auction run by a cousin of mine so I couldnt resist a finger in the air....despite promising the good lady I wouldnt return with any rifles.......I sort of kept my word

    Its an early Model A, and rather worn and missing a part or two, but I plan to have a go at getting it "back in" sometime and either buy or make the target board for it....it looks like the X Box shootem up of its day, with comical running Jerrys at different distances, this link told me about it...

    The Swift training rifle

    Hope its of interets

    Cheers

    they do indeed come in a transit box ,I bought one years ago but I think it must be a later model as it is different on the barrel end,cant get to it right now but when I can I will pst some pics

    Glad its of interest

    By all accounts the accessory's are rarer than the rifles but Ill have a go. Looking forward to seeing other "rifles"
