Hard to even find a pic of a Theoben case let alone one in real life. Less than 100 made! How many have survived?

Ken

I bought 3 of those hard cases and 3 soft cases from Davis a few years back.  Sold them all since.  

Congrats on finding one!!  They are sweet!

I too remember an opportunity from Davis a very long time ago.  From what I remember is was in the $150 range.  To me the real find are the barrels with the executive breaks.  Don't recall ever seeing open sights on one.

Hi Sonnysan, serial numbers are in the 4500 range. Should be Anschutz barrels with Anschutz/Theoben open sights. I think the muzzle breaks are Venom. The breaks are identical to the one on my Venom HW77

You are correct.  The muzzlebreaks are venom.  From what I remember they were officially called "executive" muzzlebreaks.  I have one loose somewhere.  Rare find, that is for sure.  Not positive why there would be open sights on a Theoben. 

Did own a countryman at one point.  The front sight was a one piece cast, so there was a shadow through the scope.  So I sold it.  That was basically a 19ft lb R-9.  If it wasn't for that front site I'd still own the gun.  Probably worth a lot more now since Theoben was still in business when I sold it.

I sold my Sirocco Grand Prix to Dualmagmike and it had the identical sights.
