Airgun Revue articles in this gallery 

Airgun Revue was a series of six magazines focused on vintage airguns published between 1997 and 2000, edited and largely written by Tom Gaylord.

He has since been dubbed "the godfather of airguns", presumably because he is one of the world's most prolific airgun journalists (airgun writer John Atkins in the UK must surely rival him in this regard - at least John could fairly be termed "the godfather of vintage airguns").

In a gesture of stunning generosity, Tom has consented to the articles below being posted to the gallery.

Thanks also to Larry Hannusch, who has kindly agreed to his AR articles being reproduced here.

There are a few other AR writers who I have been unable to reach to ask for permission. If you are one of them and object to your articles being included, please let me know and I will of course take them down forthwith.

Please note: some information in these articles has since been disproved, augmented, or superceded altogether. Please bear in mind they were first published around 20 years ago and therefore may not be 100% reliable.

Edit: I hadn't realised this before, but reading the AR articles as I post them I find that Tom is a really good writer! Many of you will know this already, but I must admit I didn't. His lifelong love of airguns flows through his copy. We are lucky to have him.
