“Dear Old Thing”

Written on: 03/04/2012 by Teal (1 review written)

I have a collection of around 7 or 8 Springers, by far my favourite is the Tornado Made in Hungary in 69. My lads plumb for the Airsporter, Mercury or Vulcan but i cant resist putting them in their place with this superb old rifle. I will swap the double spring for an Ox Spring when the time comes but so far it has been without a problem. Just started my Grandson on a Diana Mod 22 the Tornado is 33 years his senior and hopefuly still spitting pellets out when the time comes for him to upgrade… Read Full Review

Baggus's Response to Teal's Review

Written on: 07/06/2012

I had a tornado in the early 70's and also had an Original (Diana) model 35 I have no idea how much power these two guns produced but the model 35 was more accurate and much more powerful. but it also cost a lot more.

“A lovely old underlever”

Written on: 11/01/2012 by Kimm742 (60 reviews written)

A family friend mentioned that he'd found an old air rifle rusting away at the back of his dad's garage, so I said I'd have a look at it. A couple of days later he came round holding a lump of almost black wood with orange metal on top. Despite the corrosion it was instantly recognisable as a Tornado, a Hungarian gun made around the 1960s- 1970s. Whereas it's rival the Airsporter (also an underlever)was beautiful and graceful, the Tornado by comparison looked like the back axle of a car. And so… Read Full Review

“beautifully ugly”

Written on: 21/11/2011 by kingtobias (5 reviews written)

I picked this gun up for £40 WITH AN ORIGINAL 7 4 X 20 SCOPE with a few scuffs. I sanded the stock down and waxewd it up and its a beautiful piece of blonde beech. I cannot understand why the stock is cut so short and ugly, had it curved to a small end like the air sporter or a diana model 50 it would be purely lovely to look at. What is exposed however is a very well built and secure piece of engineering with nuts and bolts that look like they're last forever. It cocks smoothly but sound like… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/04/2011 by Peter May (18 reviews written)

I started shooting as a kid with a BSA Cadet Major .177, the iron sights were spot on, as an adult I graduated to a 12G for pigeon & clay shooting. A mate lent me his modern .22 jobbie with a scope & I got the bug again then out of the blue I met a guy by chance who had a Relum Tornado propped against his spare bedroom wall, it was in a sorry state so I got it at a very reasonable price & all I new about it was it had been in Hungary as it was stamped on the side. A bit of research on the… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/04/2010

Recently refurbished my Relum Tornado, I mounted a decent 4x32 scope and cleaned it up. However after reading the other reviews I see people have been replacing the main spring. Mines firing off fine at the moment, not sure of the fps but feel pretty strong. But would changing the spring increase the overall power? And is it relatively straight forward?
Cheers… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/04/2009 by Kathmandu (1 review written)

Owned My Relum Tornado .22 for over 16yrs now. My brother made it up for me when he was working at a gun shop as a gun smith and it cost me $10 flat. Best investment I ever made. Sadly though after all these years the barrel has started to crack away from the action, it still fires ( a Little off) but it now has to be retired. Maybe not the most powerful air-rifle on the market but reliable as hell and needed little to no maintenance. If you can get your hands on one I would do yourself a… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/03/2009

Although the Relum Tornado is not a super powerful rifle, I have found it to have consistent accuracy which more than compensates for the lack in psi. Its weight is such that it feels well balanced and comfortable to use. If not abused or neglected, there is no reason why many years of faithful service cannot be enjoyed by anybody lucky enough to own one of these "Classic" examples… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/08/2008 by koffmanstarter (1 review written)

I used my Relum Tornado for about two years, firing about 500 to 1000 shots per week. My mate had a selection of guns, ranging from a Haenal, thru ASI Sniper to an Airsporter. The tornado was more powerfull than any of them, with a new sping. It put a hole right through both sides of my dads shed at fifteen yards, but that was only possible on the first couple of shots, because then the springs (2 off) started breaking up. Sad but true. I loved it though… Read Full Review
