HEIRINKAN
Previous trade name of Heirinkan Co. located in Tokyo, Japan. Heirinkan airguns were designed by the company’s founder, the late Ueda Shoji (1918-1981). Former producer of high powered pneumatic air rifles. These rifles were made only in small numbers and for a very short time in the 1970s. Reportedly most of the rifles remaining in Japan were destroyed by the government and ownership was forbidden without a special need – such as professional pest control. Collecting as such is not allowed. Much sought after by collectors and shooters because of their high power, accuracy, and high quality. Reportedly in production 1953-1981, information not confirmed. Research is ongoing with this trademark, and more information will be included both in future editions and online.
