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.
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??
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.
