    Does anyone have one of these? I remember seeing some with bizzare ribs and even hoops. I would love to see some photos of these great, if strange looking guns.

    You still have that Tom? I had a chance to buy one years ago for reasonable money. Boy, they were a good shooter. Oh well, life goes on---Thankfully :)

    I have shouldered one of them at the Grand a few years ago and despite its funky looks it felt good. I just couldn't get past its ugliness. That is some beautiful wood though.

    No offense Tom but it looks like a Russian RPG. LOL

    $3500? That's a very good deal if it's in nice shape, original, and works properly. I wish I had a spare $3500 to squander, Er, invest. :)

    Chuck.....was that the one I shot a few moths back out at Rattlesnake? It had a window on the end of the bbl? If so, who ever is thinking about buying it, I can tell you, it's a GREAT gun and in near perfect shape from my recollection. Every bit worth $3,500. Plus, I've known Chuck since I was a kid. He's as honest as they come.

    Yes Shane, That's the one with the triangle front site.
    Now if I could find a new home for my Perazzi Sporting I could pay my taxes! (I got hammered on my disability insurance payout)

    Will probably bring my Perazzi to your up coming Yellow-Jacket shoot, Had fun last year!

    Thanks Shane
    See you at the club,

    Chuck

    I was told Al made about two hundred space guns (I do not know if that is countimg space rifles) If I remember correctly some of the space guns had plastic or composite stocks and fore arms, can anyone verify this? I own number 42 it is pretty close to mint condition and shoots great. It does take a little getting the hang of for me but I feel if I shot it regular I could shoot good scores but I really just bought it to enjoy as a special type of gun, and it is all of that.

    Does anyone compete with one on a regular basis?? I have shouldered one but never shot one. How do they shoot?? Recoil= More or Less?? What was the supposed advantage as to why they were built that way??

    Here is Space Gun #119, It has a Monte Carlo Stock and High Rib. It also has two screw in chokes. Really a nice gun in excellent shape. Pull Trigger. I'm asking $4,500 including case.

    grntitan: Next to the Browning recoil-less, the Space gun is the softest shooting gun I've ever shot. When I owned one, I shot AA's with 19.5 grains of 700X and 1 1/8+ of 7.5's (a hot load) and barely felt any recoil. It has something to do with the massive firing pin and spring in the butt stock. But, it worked. Sorry I ever sold it.
