Very nice and nostalgic piece of history Steve!!!   I had bought a Falke airrifle, which was very 'adult' and advanced for its time.  I distinctly remember, since I was always connected to the 'tuning' of all types of airrifles, even at an early age, the tapered, precision fit loading plug, which was a joy to see.  I could open it. Cock the airgun and shoot it with the tap in the open position. The compression piston remained 'unfired' as the air escape from the loading plug was nil!!! Later models of BSA and Webley tap loaders were a disaster in this area compared to the Falke.
There you are!!! You see, nostalgia!!   You wound me back to my boyhood days.
Keep it up Steve.

Glad you enjoyed it tuner. I have since been trying to recoup good examples of the ones sold by my dad. I have three so far and still on the lookout.
