By trade, Robert Lane is a product designer and engineer who started shooting airguns in his early teens, building his first rifle up from the remnants of a .22 BSA Challenger at school aged 16 "unfortunately something that would not be allowed in the school engineering department today". Around that time of his life he was more interested in professional cycle racing until sadly he had an accident at the age of 20, it was then that upon having to give up two wheels he took to shooting more seriously and not long after giving up bike riding, he built his first PCP air rifle - the Awesome 18 shot fast fire Alien.
In the years since, he has designed and manufactured approximately 70+ airguns and pellet pistols as truly one-off special commissions. However he has also designed and manufactured components through to complete air rifles for a number of well known airgun companies such as BSA and Brocock.
After repeatedly receiving requests and inquiries for his airgun regulators, he now supplies them as his hobby after work. The regulators and other components he sells are sold to customers worldwide on a self fit, DIY (do it yourself) installation basis.
