Haenel Mod 26
This topic is most likely for Garvin; Cocking lever spring?
My father in-law passed away a couple years ago. and in his possessions was an Haenel Model 26 air pistol serial #2479. The spring that keeps the cocking latch in place is broken. It has been sitting on my shelf waiting for me to get around to it. And so here we are. It still functions perfectly if you hold the lever in place.
I would like to get a spring if someone knows where to get one!
Thanks in advance
It uses the same torsion spring as the model 28, apparently, and looks like this:
John Groenewold has them for US$16.
I have one of these air pistols that i have no use for. It was my father's and it is complete and working, except for the trigger is missing (cause i kept using it as a child) and a small crack in the casting.
Wasn't sure if it was worth anything and wouldn't be expecting much, just want it to go to a good home.
I would be interested in the 26 I have one which suffered similar problems but has had the trigger guard amongst other bits cut away and changed and between them could get something working again. If you can contact me please.
I guess it comes down to your plans once restored? I had thought about trying to get a trigger or designing one for a engineering firm to make. Then braze the crack and stick on ebay, but I'd rather let it go to a collector.
As I say, it works fine and the spring is usually not under any stress. And the barrel is clean. I never realised it was so old (pre-ww2). My father had owned it since the early 70s.
So it all comes down to cost, i have no idea of it's worth except for the ones on this site.
If it's to sell on then I'd be looking for more than if it was to a collector. I'll also have to look at postal rates if you don't collect in person.
I'm in Loughborough Leicestershire
Let me know what you think. As I say it all comes down to what its worth to you, if anything.
Mark Thanks for getting back to me, if you could give me a call evenings after 7.30 is best.
PS is the rear sight broken off.
Sorry for the delay. Been unwell (still am). As for the sight, I don't think there has ever been one. Cetainly not since my father got it in the mid 70s.
Forgot to say that the serial number is 1814
Thanks for info, give me a ring when you are ready.
