The Model 114 was the rifle my Dad taught me to shoot with. During my youth I used it for hunting more than any other of my rifles. As time wore on and interests changed the old 114 sat except for the occassional outing with Dad.

Now, 40 years later, I have the old 114 back shooting. this time at targets instead of varmits. It is still deadly accurate with it’s peep site and thick pistol grip stock. I had forgotten just how hard this rifle hit! Like a mule! The old manual that my Dad had saved, says 700 fps. I can beleive it! There is a power adjuster so that you can change the velocity and maybe get more shots per fill. I have mine adjusted for max power and get about 60-65 shots per fill.

Anyone that wants a nice shooter for a reasonable pricetag can find them for sale on Gunbroker for around 100-150 bucks. Pay attention to the condition as the barrel and gas tubes are brass. If they have been handled roughly, take a pass, but many are out there in fine shape. I wouldn’t trade mine for anything. It will pass down to my son someday. Sooner than it was passed to me, I hope.

I just want to take a moment to point out that the model 114 is 22 caliber and the 113 is 177 caliber.

I bought this one at an on line auction. The seller said it didn’t shoot so i got kind of a deal. when I got it,it looked as if it had not been shot much. It didn’t come with the fill tank and did not shoot because it was empty! I had a tank so I filled it and the fun began. It is powerful and accurate. My 114 was made in 1955 and the seals still hold. One of the previous owners filed scope grooves into the breech and mounted a weaver 4×15 scope on it. The scope mount was a one piece steel mount that made loading pellets troublesome. I replaced the scope and mount with a vintage revelation 4×15 scope that had 2 piece mounts wich makes loading much better. This airgun is among the favorites in my colection.
