The Limited Edition RSN70 – A Photo Tour of This Seriously Collectible Air Rifle.
Air Arms created the Limited Edition RSN70 air rifle to celebrate the 70th birthday of their late founder Robert “Bob” Sinclair Nicholls. This rifle is based on Bob’s most beloved possession, his 2008 Bentley Continental GTC motor car.
HAM brought you a picture of the RSN70 in one of our IWA Show reports. However, with the help of our our friends at Pyramyd Air, here are some really high quality studio photographs of this incredible air rifle – including some that you will not have seen before.
Air Arms manufactured 70 of these unique airguns for sale world wide. The good news is that Pyramyd Air was able to secure some for the US market. The bad news is that they have just 10 units, total, for sale — numbers 60 thru 69!
There’s no question that the Air Arms RSN70 is a serious airgun for the serious airgun collector! The quality of manufacture and finish has to be seen to be believed!
Of course, this is not a cheap air rifle. As they used to say back in Britain about Rolls Royce (and Bentley) cars. If you have to ask the price, you probably can’t afford it!!!

There’s an adjustable stock created by the specialist craftsmen at famous Italian stockmakers Minelli. The Umbrian Red coloration of the RSN70 is accented by cream colored Bentley grade inlaid leather —showcasing Air Arms commitment to quality design.
The timeless combination of fine materials and meticulous craftsmanship includes a highly adjustable chrome plated adjustable match trigger, guard, and sidelever cocking.
The RSN70 offers a shrouded and free floating match grade Lothar Walther barrel that features a built in air-stripper for additional accuracy. Some added touches include a cylinder cover that looks like a tire set, and a punch-out car grill pattern on the shroud.
And the sleek car themed component parts include a in-built pressure gauge styled after a gas gauge.
As befits a serious airgun for a serious collector, each RSN70 includes a leather gun slip and a matching leather document case for your certificate of authenticity.
