I’ll take a stab at it:

 

#1 TX 200 custom

#2 TX 200 custom

#3 HW97 Blue Lam (Beeman Label?)

#4 Beeman R9 custom

#5 FWB 300S

#6 No clue….Gamo?

#7 Same as #3

#8 HW30S

#9 BAM B21 side lever

#10 Beeman R9 custom

#11 Same as #4

#12 Webley Patriot (English verson)

#13 Beeman Kodiak

Hoping I get at least  70% for a passing grade Rob 🤔

Well done, sir.     The Gamo is an English made 1250...   

And 10 is a custom R7....        all else correct.    The HW97, is a bit of a mutt as I had the LK model in .22 and bought a standard .177 and swapped stocks and sold the .22

Admittedly,  I've not shot them as much lately as i should, but there is something to be said for pride of ownership.   I have more; really need to organize my pics

Wow, Rob! You've got some nice toys! But your title really should have had some kind of warning in it because now my keyboard is covered in drool. 🤤 

I didn't do too bad at guessing what they were, considering you tried to throw us off by posting two pics each of the R9 and the blue lam 97, lol. I was pretty sure that #6 was a Gamo but didn't know which model. But I had no clue what 9, 12, & 13 were.

Thanks for posting your eye candy! And I'd enjoy seeing any others you'd care to share pics of.

Rob,

Tell me about the 1250.  I had always wanted to get my hands on one of those, and tune it down to 12-13 FPE.  Long stroke, big diameter, I always thought it would be a perfect platform for building a nice all-day plinker if you just replaced the typical factory over-stressed spring.  I have an early 440 that I tuned down to shoot at about 770 with 7.9, and its a really nice gun to shoot.  I always wanted to try the same approach on one of the British "big" Gamos.

Thank you, sir...  yeah, the throw wasnt intentional, I just started moving pics that I saw of springers that looked decent.  Didnt happen to see one of my RWS 54 in a custom stock.  I think I have another custom, too, but the rest are standard more or less...haha   I'll save them as I find them and post again!

The 1250.... haha... well, sir.  I have the Kodiak and Patriot in .25 and .22 so had wanted to round out my 'beastly' springer collection, knowing I'd likely not find a big Theoben in .20 and if I did... I'd shy away due to the limited pellet selection so when I found this 1250 in .177 for $200, I figured I'd snag it. 

It's completely stock and is everything you'd expect... it's twangy, the trigger is horrid, it's heavy and it will damn near jolt your jaw off when firing it... but I like it.  It's powerful, too powerful for anything other than 10gr and above.  It's a challenge to shoot accurately.  I think you're spot on with detuning, would be a great solid platform for a bench springer, but to carry about, it's a bit unweildy.
