Hi Pakgun People. I just joined the club after been observing from past few days. Its a very informative site plus the hospitality of people is the best among any sight i have ever seen in the world. Hats of to Pakgun Admin.

Anyways, my query is that I found an old Rainbow Airgun. Its is my mamoo's when he was a kid so it makes it almost 20-25years old. Unfortunately the gun has been a bit rusty and, the stock(DASTI) has been broken, and theres a litle issue in loading.

I want to restore it by giving it to a gunsmith to put a new WOODEN DASTI, and fix it, and maybe color, and oily it,
My question to you is that should i get it refurbished , Coz i have seen that according to Dr.Hanif new one is costing 2600.
So is it worth restoration?? Though I have a litle attachement with it and I also dont have money to buy anything other than Rainbow. So please help that should i go for its repairing or not. Coz i need a good gun for small hunting and fun. :)

Dr.Hanif i need your advice especialy coz you know bout these Rainbow guns. Plus tellme that do you know what power and velocity it would be having and is it better quality from the New made. keeping in mind its 25years old.
Regards

Yes they won't die, not exactly 500 shots could be even less.

No, just go to some gunsmith and get the spring changed for around 400rs once you see birds aren't falling but flying off injured.
