This a Mondial Gun Toys brand RO71 .177 cal pistol from Italy. I also have the Mondial Oklahoma so I had to have this. I'd never seen or heard of this model before. There is a similar gun called the Panther with a full plastic stock. If these guns are rare today, it's probably because they're made from diecast pot-metal and brittle plastic and haven't survived. The barrel * rifled *, mainspring, and a couple screws are about the only steel used in the gun, every thing else is zinc or aluminum. The gun was in pretty rough shape. but a complete teardown and restoring fixed that. These are a very simple gun to work on and are self explanatory once opened.

After completing I have shot it 10 times. Five making sure it worked and five chrono at average of 247fps. Tomorrow will shoot it at 25 feet

Shot it about 25 times, then tested it 253fps averaged. Then shot it from rest at 25 feet. Not a target match pistol for sure. But okay for plinking. And what the heck. Its pretty cool.

A fun little gun from Airgun history.
