    For total adjustment capability, take a look at this: http://www.rmftc.eu/pdf/RMFTC_stockreview.pdf Now if only it was available in 6x47 or 6BR.................. Pete

    Tikka M595 bottom metal wanted

    I'm looking for a bottom metal, (as opposed to the factory bottom "plastic") for my M595. I've contacted Lumley Arms, and DCR and am awaiting replies. Are there any others who might have/make such an item? Pete

    Tikka M595 bottom metal wanted

    How about with an original Tikka 5-shot mag? Or is the release in a different place? Does the machining just involve opening the well a shade, and would it need re-proofing? Pete

    Tikka M595 bottom metal wanted

    I'm hoping to find something that won't require any machining. It's to go in a GRS Hybrid stock, which is a drop-in fit for the plastic version with the mag release on the right hand side. Pete
  6. Anyone know if the proof houses differentiate between 5.56 NATO (62350psi) and .223 (55000psi) when proofing a rifle? I wondered if this difference sparked off the old "Don't use milsurp in your 223" saga. The proof rounds are apparently calculated to produce 130% of the cartridge design pressure, and QL states 62366psi for 223 Rem, and 55000psi for 223 Rem SAAMI...............the attached proof stamp pic is of my long throated 30" barrel 223, for which I load 80 grain bullets to a Pmax of 52179 psi, giving around 3000 fps. Re-Pete
  7. Does the 223 Wylde kick off with the standard case? Presumably it has increased capacity......... I use Lapua cases headstamped "223 Match". Pete
  8. Just looked and I only have socket heads.......sorry. Pete
  9. If you need some, either size, I may be able to help........... Re-Pete

    223 rifle choice - what ????

    We have a Savage mod 12 F/TR in one of these stocks.........took a fair bit of fettling to get it comfortable for the girl, and no good for a very large hand. There wasn't enough space behind the trigger guard for the second finger, and a ridge just where the thumb goes round. Or you could hold it with your little finger hanging underneath the grip................. Would have had another GRS Hybrid, but the quoted lead time for a blank was unacceptable, and they don't do an inlet for the mod 12. Re-Pete

    1967spud World Headquarters is go go go

    I can't see any catering packs of bullets there, only the 100 round taster boxes. Re-Pete
  12. End of barrel type, black anodised, boxed, with two wrenches and aluminium spacers. Light signs of use, less than 100 rounds through it. £125, collect Bisley or Southampton. Re-Pete

    GP.s and FAC renewals

    Which is not too bad, although it'll add three weeks to the processing time. I've always found Winchester office bods very pleasant people to deal with. Re-Pete

    GP.s and FAC renewals

    My last diving medical cert 25 years ago cost me £50, and it took around 30mins to carry out the examination. (My GP is/was a diving MO)......... A flag on the record with the provisor that the GP contacts the police if someone presents with specified symptoms should be enough. But once again, it's placing the onus on the GP, and you betcha, if he/she passed someone OK who then shot up a mall the next week, his/her career would be over.............. Worryingly, it looks like there's no way around this if the GP refuses because he/she doesn't like firearms..................unless you have a group practice with a partner who's OK with it. In principle, the concept of psychological profiling before allowing someone access to firearms sounds sensible, but people's emotional states can change, often quickly, and like an MOT, the GP's assessment is only valid on the day. It's just another attempt to be seen to be "doing something", and sadly, I think we'll just have to suck it up................. Re-Pete

    Can't get a decent backstop..................and besides, I'm not so bootless and unhorsed that I'd ever consider eating 'em.

    HPS Target Rifles Ltd.

    Matt has always been very helpful, saving me the journey to Glos. by leaving unpostable stuff at the NSRA Bisley for me to collect when shooting. What's the problem with pre-proofed barrels? We've had a couple from Savage and one from Blaser which have all been fine, Re-Pete

    .22LR Dilemma

    We have two Annies...............one is 50's vintage Supermatch 54, the other 70's Match 54. No idea how many rounds have been through them, but both shoot better than we can. (And the older one likes SK Std., which is one of the cheapest 22LR ammo's around). One was £175 from a dealer at the Phoenix a few years ago, and the other was £50 from a club member who was giving up. You can't really go wrong with Anschutz, provided you do the usual inspection for barrel bulges etc. Re-Pete
