I recently aquired a Heym 101 repeater (minus the magazine); a post from the previous owner is here
http://www.network54.com/Forum/184474/thread/1488607313

There is some rust and minor metal pitting; the stock is actually in pretty decent shape considering the age. Bore is very good. The biggest problem is the fixed part of the barrel locking wedge is missing, but I can replace that. Cocking is a bit crunchy but it shoots pretty well. I will be opening it up for cleaning and photos, and to replace the spring if I can find one the right size.

Performance:
<table border="1"><tr><td>H&N FTT</td><td>8.6 grs</td><td>560 fps</td><td>5.9 ft lbs</td></tr><tr><td>CPL</td><td>7.9</td><td>582</td><td>5.9</td></tr><tr><td>Super HP</td><td>6.9</td><td>610</td><td>5.7</td></tr><tr><td>GTO WC</td><td>5.2</td><td>722</td><td>6.0</td></tr></table>

The airgun:






5 shots with GTO wadcutters at 5 meters; had to hold the barrel closed since part of the locking wedge is missing. A dime covers the group.


More to come.

Garvin,

I'm curious as to why you want the serial number for the Heym 101. Did the 101 have its own sequence? I assume that the production of these was just in the hundreds.

I was asking on behalf of a German collector who doesn't have access to this forum.
