Help Tracing an Old Bsa Meteor in Bangalore

Post by royell » Wed Aug 04, 2021 4:19 pm

Hi All...just a very longevity.. I live in Australia. I visited Bangalore in 1978 and I brought with me a Bsa meteor . I was able to sell it before I left. I sold it to Banglore Armoury. I'm now seeking to get it back as it has nostalgic significance.. if any body has it and would like to sell it .. This would mean alot to me .. I know there s been alot of time since but just maybe it's out there somewhere.. thanks to all for reading..

Welcome to IFG, Royell. Do you have the serial number of the air rifle? All the best. We do have members from Bangalore. I hope they will step in.

Prabath, Thanks for your offer , i just cant locate the Reg of it , But it was a BSA Meteor super .22, which was the model with the cheek piece and black rubber pad. The model was made between the years 0f 1973 t0 78, It was back in in 1978 when I sold it to Bangalore Armoury. The Reg should be prefixed TG . I appreciate your help. Please feel free to email me if you like on royellis7 (at) bigpond (dot) com.

Royell,

Did speak to friends but the news is not promising. Records that old are not maintained is what I was told. Checking other sources too. Will update you.
