I have an older gun from my father. Its .177, one side has a diamond stamped on it with three rings that have "M" inside the rings. Under the rings it says MONDIAL. Its made in Italy. Other side it has the name OKLAHOMA stamped on it. It is break barrel with a lever to disengage the lock. Anything on this gun would be very helpful.
Thanks, JamesM

Mondial became Modesto Molgora located in Milano, Italy somewhere around 20 years ago. I don't think they made any more airguns after that either. The company was not terribly significant in respect to airguns, and it certainly didn't make very many models- the two most notable being the "Oklahoma" and the "Roger".

The Oklahoma was probably their best pistol, as it had rifled barrel while everything else they made, I believe anyways, was smoothbore. I have no idea how old yours would be, but from what I understand it was made over a period of 20-30 years (1950's to 1980's).

Anyways, the Oklahoma was not very powerful, somewhere around 200-250fps with 7.9gr pellets and came in a black finish usually with plastic grips, or a nickel finish with wood grips. As to value- I really have no idea, but certainly not the most common gun around.

Eric, I'm impressed. You are a virtual fountain of
information. Where do you get it?

Alot of it comes from "old school" resources- i.e. books. The rest involves very careful search engine scanning- the sh!t you have to ignore online to get anywhere these days is becoming absurd... 'Tard

thanks for the help not too worried about the value though. most of the parts are worn out and needs to be replaced. Any idea on where to get parts or have them made?

We've only ever had one or two people with an Italy-based email sign on here, neither of which have ever posted anything. If they found a way to creep out and say "Hello"- maybe they know of somewhere that would have parts for these guns(?).
