I have an old air gun that was once nickel plated but now is pretty rusty but still works has original sights and wood stock. i found one at an online auction and it said that there are only 50 known specimens. I would really like to find out what it is worth in the condition its in. i can post some pix if anyone has any thoughts thanks.

The model E is the most common of the sheet metal Heilprins. They show up quite often at the airgun shows. Bill Johnson wrote a very good book on the Columbians & Heilprin guns and you will find anything you want to know about the guns in his book. The book also comes with a cd full of photos. His number is 661-822-8778. Check out the airgun show in Kalamazoo MI on August 21 at the fairgrounds Expo Center for more of these Columbian and Heilprin guns.
