Help me identify this vintage air gun...
That, sir... is a BAM B5-10. Chinese gun... A really cool little gun. I have one fully functional as well as a parts gun as they are hard to come by for parts. Throw a Ruger 10/22 rail on top and scope it and you have a fine little gun. It's a bit of a pain with the in line mag, but when you find the right pellet, it actually as some decent power and accuracy.
To my knowledge, they have no collector value and for 'function' there are better options out there. I happen to like mine. If you want to get rid of it, do let me know, please. Otherwise, shoot it and enjoy it for the oddity that it is.
All those who believe in psychokinesis, raise my hand.
Good judgment comes from experience; experience usually comes from bad judgment.
A lady at work was cleaning out her garage and asked if I would like it, or perhaps my son. I gladly accepted it. Free is free, in my mind, lol.
She also gave me a functional Tech Force 35 pistol and a functional Baikal Drozd BB machine pistol. All for free.
This was the only one I couldn't identify.
I plan to give them to my son, perhaps with the exception of the TF 35. I love spring piston air pistols.
well that is a deal right ?
When you think about it, these were exactly the guns this forum ( well the grandfather to this forum) was built on.
James and his fun supply airguns and the Chinese airgun forum.
Then there was the whole cottage industry of tunes and parts.
You could get a BestTunes drop in kit for $30 and by adding in 50% the price of the gun it
would shoot like something 3x the price. Ohhh the glory days!
Buy a case of rifles and get like 10 lbs of those Chinese pellets.
Good old James RIP.
