Back on topic, we have no section for "other pistols" as it's really a small minority who would contribute. I know there are a few interested but just like the "other rifles" it would be a little used section of the forum.
For anyone interested I'll post some more pics of my S.A.M.11K (one of the rarer 10m target pistols) and also I have a fairly rare Diana pre-war pistol that I must photograph. One of these days I'll have enough money for a Morini and maybe even a Steyr or two.

would it not be possible to make the BSA pistol section just an open pistol section then instead of opening a new topic

Well the Comet section has 9 topics and 37 posts after 3 years, pretty sure a pistol section would see weekly use at least.

Well, I don't moderate that section of the forum but those people who own BSA pistols may not want their posts diluting with "other pistols". Seeing as we're only likely to get one or two threads a year about any particular non-BSA pistol make or model it's probably best to leave them in "off topic" or "technical info". The "reviews" section also has a lot of non-BSA gear in it.
As the mods and admin have been asked before on "other rifles" the collective answer was that too many sections make the board too difficult to navigate, let's imagine sub dividing the BSA guns into Mk's such that the Airsporter section would then have 8 sub boards, the Mercury 5, the S10 3,  the R10 would need 2 and counting...
Let's keep the board simple and if you wish to post a selection of "other pistol" pics perhaps use the gallery section or any other section that you think may apply. If the mods move the pics I'm sure they'll have a good reason or will move them back to where you originally posted them if you have a particular reason for siting them wherever you did.
Off the top of my head I can't think of more than a dozen threads referring to other pistols in the last 3+ years. I may have missed one or two but having a serious interest in airpistols I do keep my ear to the ground regarding posts on here about them. We had a few about Webley and Weihrauch but not a lot more unless you count the CO2 replica type pistols (not so interesting in my mind, but that's just my point of view).

Aww but CO2 replicas are all I can afford  /shucks 2/


Good point though Tom, the gallery could have a sticky for Pistols, assuming a thread is started first of course!

For the price of 2 or 3 CO2 replicas you could buy yourself a decent pcp air pistol, more powerful and consistent any day.

Ohh you horrible man! I'm not in the slightest bit green eyed! /bashful/33




As for my pistols they are all 3rd, 4th or 11th hand and have seen better days. They do their job (humane dispatch) but aesthetically would not sell so I'm stuck with them for now. I'd love a 2240 in .25 for the job in hand, only need 10 shots maximum per day out.

Aye, that was the second reason I like the 2240, first being that it's cheap! Second that it can be easily modded.
Come to realise a cheaper project than an R10 may be a sensible plan.... Get my R10 up to speed and LEAVE IT ALONE!!  /smile 343/


This time next hear I'll have the 2240 version of Bevan's R10  /shucks 2/ /smile/

how would you feel tom (rancid) if i made a poll thread to ask whether people would want a other pistol section? then if it is wanted maybe we could think further about creating one?

if not then we can just leave it and go about our ways.
i'm just thinking that people may not talk alot about them because there isn't a place made for it?

Ive always thought about buying a 2240, but after buying several pistols in the past and then just not shooting them, another investment all be it cheap has just not materialized.

They are only £90 at the local RFD, oh well the wifes birthdays coming up, I should just by one as a gift to her and then just play with it myself.  /shucks 2/

Tomsteebs, I think a poll is a good idea. I have no need for a pistol section myself but may require one in the future, so to rule out the possibility would be silly I guess.

good idea!!

i'm getting into pistols because i want a airgun that i can make hard shots in my 30yard garden as my 97 gives no challenge.

my local rfd is really good for buying new airguns now as he only stocks airguns when payed for prior so you get them cheaper.

£78 plus a few pounds postage for the 2240.

the scorpian se was cheapest from him aswell

I've  just emailed  http://eshop.eurogrips.co.uk to see about the cost of a .22 - .25 conversion. Fingers crossed it's not a silly price!

I don't mind if there is a pistol section, if it's what enough members want then all you can do is ask the admin (not me, I don't run the site!)
