Lucznik Kl. 188

November 18 2001, 10:43 PM 

The company's name is Predom Lucznik, in Radom, Poland. According to the 3rd Edition of John Walter's "The Airgun Book," the Kl. 188 (not "88"?) was the largest model made by this company. It is 43" long, weights 7 1/2 pounds, and has a sliding manual breech lock that resembles the current Slavia 633. The stock has a nice cheekpiece and narrow grooves in the side of the short squared forend.

A very simple-looking gun, the external trigger screw looks like something typical of 1930's designs. Walter describes them as "not especially impressive" and that the company soon switched to making sewing machines (ouch)!

Although undoubtedly uncommon, I would doubt it is very valuable; there is no high demand to accompany the low supply! These Eastern European guns tend to be rather low-powered, I would guess it is a 600 to 650 fps gun in .177.

The most interesting airgun made by Lucznik was a rather nice copy of the Walther 53 pistol...
