Response to Falke 90 sn7
Gaines welcome to the forum and thank you for your comment.
Trevor welcome to you too and thanks for your posts and the link to your site. What a truly beautiful model 90 that is!
I think the confusion over Falke 90 serial no.7 comes from the fact that I took the details of a sale of a Falke 90 on the NZ Trademe in January 2008. The seller was also a Trevor (from Waitakere City, Auckland) and the ad read:
"Falke Modell 90 Air Rifle .177 calibre and in vgc. Number 7 of around 200. One of the rarest most desirable spring-piston rifles ever made. Has open and diopter rear sights.A serious item for the collector.
Purchaser must be over the age of 18.Proof of age required.NZ purchasers only sorry."
Am I right in thinking there were two model 90 serial no.7s in NZ, one in each calibre, or was the advert mistaken?!
