    Theoben Air rifles

    It would seem that Theoben has gone into liquidation as of 19th October.

    That's a shame!! The rapid 7 was a legendary sluggy!! Had mine for 16 years and still going strong!! Think the air rifle market is saturated now loads of manufactures to choose from!!

    That's really sad - I always thought their product range was great. I've very fond memories of hours spent plinking. My son fired his first shot with my old sirocco. That gas ram system really did change the air rifle world.

    Hey ho - a little tear and a quiet entry in the engineering hall of fame.

    I am not surprised to say the least. I have a mk1 rapid bought approx 19 - 20 yrs ago, I haven't had much trouble with the exception of a few valves. A good friend is big into airrifles and has spent many thousands on Theobens, the service he has had from them was terrible, the products are great but the follow up and customer services left a lot to be desired.

    if a decent company can buy the ip and patents I think it would be a great improvement for the brand etc

    Always found the Theo running around 29ftlbs sorted the rabbits much better than the .22LR.
