Falke Modell-70.

 

A recent purchase, and the first Falke I have owned, I can't find a serial number, it's .22 rifled, with a nice walnut stock.

Hi , here some pics from a Falke 70 /.177 . The Stock belongs not Original to this Rifle , He´s from my ´Grabbelkiste´ ( Spare-Parts-Depot?) . Mounted before
was a Stock for a Krico LG1 later Production . The Rifle was not airthigt at the breech because the Pre-Owner removed the bolt who fix the Block with the Transfer-Port. The Barrel is also a bit bent.

Falke Modell-70 - Detailed Photos.

 

Some very nice pics of a Falke 70 - with rounded pistol grip and distinctive (quite crude) chequering - encountered on a Polish web site.

With thanks to John for the reminder.

Falke Modell-70 with swastika stamp 

With thanks to Frank for the heads up and a collector for the pics.

A strange one this since the timelines don't add up. The Falke is a '50s air rifle, of course, and German Nazis disappeared from view in 1945. The most likely explanation, therefore, is that a dyed-in-the wool Nazi supporter did it in the 1950s, and made a very convincing replica. The eGun seller sold it as genuine though,  ignoring the apparent impossibility of it being so...!
