Anschütz LG250 (early)

This was another revolutionary match rifle. The reverse piston of the LG220 was replaced with a hydraulic damper unit, which absorbed recoil by forcing a piston with an undersized diameter through a bore part-filled with hydraulic fluid. It worked very well and the rifle was highly regarded by match shooters in the 1970s. The problems emerged later, when the hydraulic unit's plastic seals started to disintegrate, allowing the fluid to escape and reducing, and then removing altogether, its capacity to limit felt recoil.

At the end of these pics is a pictorial I took of an overhaul of one of these hydraulic units, with the intention of delivering a guide to its repair. I posted a thread on the American Airguns forum HERE.

With thanks to Barry for this exploded parts illustration:
