    Really old but classic. Upgraded it in many ways.

    One of the best engineered designs.

    love the rapids, classic legend. makes me wonder which of the modern day guns will achieve similar cult status in decades to come? my guess – the edguns

    Great job bringing a classic back to life.

     

    I had a couple AZ tuned Rapids and they were fantastic guns. I have since gravitated to the bullpups as I prefer shorter guns now days.

    One of the best airguns I ever owned was a grey laminated rapid .22 that I sold to Joe B.

    Nicely done Umair, but as rapids go, that is still a baby, some of mine are 15+ years older than that 😁

    That’s the beauty of a rapid, it can be customised is so many different formats.

    here is a bullpup I made a few years ago

    I understand they have been resurrected in the UK. under new ownership. Hard to find anything about them though.

    They were but that company crashed too. It was called impact Air based in the same factory, they did do a few minor changes to the internals but these aren’t any better than the original parts. They did do some more modern looking stocks and fitted a few bits of carbon here and there.
