I recently aquired a Heym 101 repeater (minus the magazine); a post from the previous owner is here

There is some rust and minor metal pitting; the stock is actually in pretty decent shape considering the age. Bore is very good. The biggest problem is the fixed part of the barrel locking wedge is missing, but I can replace that. Cocking is a bit crunchy but it shoots pretty well. I will be opening it up for cleaning and photos, and to replace the spring if I can find one the right size.

Performance:
H&N FTT8.6 grs560 fps5.9 ft lbs
CPL7.95825.9
Super HP6.96105.7
GTO WC5.27226.0

5 shots with GTO wadcutters at 5 meters; had to hold the barrel closed since part of the locking wedge is missing. A dime covers the group.

More to come.
