I picked this up last week and know nothing about  Falcons .
As the cylinder is 19 "I think its a.22  Light Hunter Raptor???
Not sure as the images I have seen don't all have the Combined silencer fill port on it.  I don't know if there are MK1 MK2 MK3 ETC???
Any assistance would be appreciated.

Hello and welcome Harty.

It looks like a Falcon FN Lighthunter Mk2 Raptor to me, but I'm sure I will be corrected if I am mistaken.

p.s.   The Falcon quick fill silencer is an add on that will fit any Falcon FN series and does not affect the designation. Some owners prefer this q/f silencer, but silencers such as the Weihrauch (which need an 1/2" UNF adapter fitting) are a touch quieter.

MK1 has a straight bolt handle, the brass indexing bar is different at the rear, . . . . . and they might have a Dowty seal in the breech face?
