so if you were in the states i would say buy the new Airgun Blue Book when it come out later this year 

because there is as much info no that manufacture as your going to find 

but there is another way, seeing you are in Oslo, buy  one month of there online service 

https://www.bluebookofgunvalues.com/#/Online_Subscription

it is a very good way to find info and pricing and also to educate yourself on all the guns we don't own 

it is just an idea

Thanks !

Yeh have heard about this Blue book may need to buy this 🙂  I do live in sweden but real close to border Norway and Oslo  

online seems up to date way to get knowledge  🙂

But it good fun to share knowledge to each other as well don't you agree ?  do feel sometimes there is an unwilling to socialise regarding our collecting interest in some forums ... well there is collectors and there is investors and those dosen have any reason to socialise if its not money involved am sorry to say .. and that kills fun of collecting but that is my personal opinion

sharing knowledge is not the problem but coping 2 pages out of the Blue Book is 

and my old 70 year old fingers and my hunt and peck style of typing can be 

i thought about scanning it but it is in a part of the book that will not lay flat 

i know nothing about this manufacture other then what i have read 

very old, very expensive and way before there time, ideas wise

there was 7 guns listed, 3 pistols, 3 rifles and a shotgun 

they were made in short runs it appears and being from the 1870's each could be a little different and some were engraved 

so my suggestion was just that, a well written text and pictures that can be printed and saved

Do understand it wasn't any personal ,,

was more trying reaching out to those Giffard owners as is members in this Gallery , maybe some longtime collector of those have something to share ,, just a thought 🙂
