    Very hard to say, there are 9 versions of the Airsporter and how beat up is beat up?



    As a rough guide though:

    A full tune up kit from Chambers (seals, pistons, springs, lumbs etc) seems to vary from 60-80 depending on how 'premium' you go with parts and for which model.

    Ian has an Airsporter S for sale on this forum and is asking for 140 (plus postage) and states is as being a bit rough and could do with some tuning.

    Online I can find them from 70 (sold already!) to 200 with the majority being around 140 ish.

    Really depends a lot on the model, age, and what's wrong with it

    Buying standard parts for a tune up will cost you about 50 and if the stock needs doing that will cost you another 20 to 30 if you have nothing in

    If your re blueing that's another 20, or 50 depending on how it's done

    Doing them up is profit less normally

    But bloody enjoyable,

    I am hopefully getting a banged up one of Ian, and have already spent 120 on bits for it in my head Not including the rifle, but I know what I am like (obsessive )

    Some on here for price info, I was going to go after the theoben, but Ian's airsporter is more appealing to me

    The Airsporter I have for sale is in .177 which I am told makes it a bit more desirable. It's not rough or beat up, it is used but I wouldn't say its in bad condition, the re-lube really helped.
    The other one I have is in .22, has some serious issues like a dangerous hair trigger and barely spits a pellet out of the muzzle, not to mention the rust!. It's only worth about 20 I reckon as it is a late model (70s) and in bad condition.

    Personally I don't like Airsporters. They may have been good in their day but compared to an HW77 they are a piece of crap, that's just my opinion, some people love them.
    PCP: BSA Superten, JB blueprinted with 4-16x50 MTC Mamba (for sale). Theoben Rapid7 Mk1.
    Springer: HW77K, V.Mach tuned with NS Mountmaster 3-9x40AO.
    All tuned to perfection

    I think I got lucky with my Airsporter S but the HW77 changed the game completely when introduced and spawned a whole generation of newer underlever rifles such as the AA TX200, BSA Superstar, Webley Eclipse etc. It's a landmark in Airgun history and possibly the most successful spring powered air rifle ever made. How many others are still produced nearly 30 years after their first inception date. Having said that I still have fond memories of the Airsporter, it's a beautiful looking gun.

    ATB,
