Repeating Air Guns… in the 18th Century?!

For decades, Dr. Robert D. Beeman has been at the forefront of air gun collecting and research. Also the founder of Beeman Air Guns in 1972, he has been called the “Father of the Adult Airgun Market of the United States.” Now, selections from his phenomenal collection are available at Rock Island Auction Company.

While Dr. Beeman has long specialized in large bore antique air guns, the highlights here show the extraordinary variety resulting from his dedication. Pistols, rifles, various countries, interesting mechanisms, and variations of the famous Girandoni system (made famous by Lewis & Clark) are just part of what is to be discovered in this fascinating assemblage of repeating air guns.
