TELL
Previous trademark manufactured by Venuswaffenwerk, located in Zella, Mehlis, Germany. Venuswaffenwerk was formed by Oskar Will in 1844, and made both air rifles and pistols for nearly one hundred years. The Tell 1 was most likely designed by Will as a companion to his popular rifles. The design of Tell 2 & Tell 3 are very different and more elegant. They were not companions to any rifle and were designed after Wilhelm Foss took over the company about 1919. The company ceased operations in the late 1950s.
