I was recently given an old air rifle.
It is a single shot with the action breaking in front of the stock. The only markings still visable are:
An ornate S.A.R and three interlocking arrows at the butt end on the receiver. "made in japan" stamped at the left side pivot point near the front of the stock.
It shows signs of a lot of use and I can see why. It is easy to use and acurate.
