  Theoben goes bust
« on: October 25, 2012, 13:56:37 PM » by RB
Theoben, maker of iconic air rifles such as the Eliminator, the SLR and the Rapid range, and also partly responsible for the Weihrauch HW90, has apparently stopped trading.

http://www.theoben.co.uk/product.php?productid=6

Theoben's guns were always a notch above the more mainstream guns, but their prices were also relatively high. However in recent times there were complaints about the quality of their offerings and also their service, even in their dealings with gunshop owners, none of which factors could have helped much, in fact were probably the reason for the firm's demise.

No real worries for owners, the gas rams are serviceable by any competent person and so are the PCPs, also no doubt other companies or individuals will fill in the breach in this respect for those who are not mechanically minded.

Perhaps someone will pick up the pieces and continue where the current management have left off, or perhaps in the near future existing Theobens will become (more) desirable air guns from a time when only a few manufacturers still built guns up to those standards, rather than down to a price.

Pity, if ever I had to buy an air rifle, a Theoben would have been at the top of my list...... Sad

Beam me up Scotty. There's no longer any intelligent life down here.
