PROVIDENCE ARMS CO, ENGLAND
A RARE LIMITED EDITION .25 PRE-CHARGED PNEUMATIC AIR-RIFLE, MODEL 'THE GAMEKEEPER', serial no. 17,
circa 1993 and one of 25 produced, with round to octagonal to round 24in. barrel including detachable Parker-Hale sound moderator, blued slab-sided receiver with twist-open bolt action loading, the right hand side deeply stamped 'THE GAMEKEEPER - SPECIAL EDITION', polished walnut butt-stock with adjustable heel-plate and separate walnut pistol-grip, detachable front mounted air cylinder, the underside of receiver marked '17 OF 25' and fitted with a Richter Optik 4-16x40 AOE telescopic sight and a brass trigger-shoe

Provenance: These rare air-rifles were originally produced in very low numbers by the Colchester Weapons Workshop Ltd between 1989 and 1992. Production and reliability problems led to the manufacture being taken over by Providence Arms Co. in 1992, this being a limited edition rifle of the later manufacture. The majority of the standard examples (believed less than 50) which featured abs plastic stocks and grips were sold as 'Beeman Gamekeepers' in the US. The company was finally wound up in 1997.
