@citizen-k

Thanks for the additional information. I was curious how much pressure was used to launch a 15 inch projectile. 1000 psi on that scale seems like a lot of pressure for the 1890's.

A bit more information about a different airgun (this one a practical application) with good "service history":

Scroll down to the details of the Haida.

As Bill would put it:

Keep well and shoot straight!
