  3. Thought I'd update. I've had the kestrel sat on my bench since the screen went and decided to have a look inside last night. Please note, mine was out of warranty so I had nothing to lose. Popped out the impeller and removed the 7 (1 central one under the sticker) allen screws, it looked like something had slipped from between the lcd and the circuit board, so put everything back how it looked like it should be and reassembled. Put a battery in and it works as it should, hurrah
  4. Anyone whos done a mag conversion have one going spare please, thought I'd ask before going down the Brownells route, or if you know of a UK supplier. Thanks

  8. Sound similar to the method demonstrated by Jelen deer on youtube, its how I do mine but without the forceps

    Worn threads, Rem 700

    On closer inspection (threads looked quite sharp) it appears the reason the 6-48 bolts supplied with the rail didn't hold was due to the action already being tapped M4, now sorted with correct size and secure
  10. Bags quicker to adjust and possibly allows rifle to recoil freely depending on how its used, monopod is always attached though
