    Yukon RT monocular

    Its possible but you will need an adaptor, if you go on facebook and look up yukon extreme conversions, william is the chap that makes the adaptors for that conversion, I'm sure he'd do a run for monoculars as well

    Advice needed. Chamber issues

    Wasn't there a recent post on a Howa having a short chamber

    Which electronic powder thrower/dispenser

    If you already have decent beam scales try a target master trickler

    Double rifle sling

    I didn't like the z aim either, didn't feel as secure

    Double rifle sling

    Yes, but might wobble a bit

    Double rifle sling

    Fit side mounted sling swivels and use an SA80 sling, very versatile bit of kit

    Silverstone, but thats only 100 yards
  12. I have a kestrel 2000, but the LCD is only showing the bottom half of the digits. Has anyone replaced a screen on one, currently waiting to hear back from kestrel themselves and the UK distributor to see if its do-able
  13. 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
  14. 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

  18. Sound similar to the method demonstrated by Jelen deer on youtube, its how I do mine but without the forceps
  19. I've just bought a Rem 700 which I intend to use as a dedicated NV rifle, I've noticed the threads in the action for the bases are quite worn and I'm not convinced they'll secure a rail to the action as they are. I intend to rethread in a slightly larger size to allow me to fit the rail, is there any reason I shouldn't or anything I should be aware of? Thanks for any advice
  20. Akeld

    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
  21. Bags quicker to adjust and possibly allows rifle to recoil freely depending on how its used, monopod is always attached though

    What about the stoeger, aren't they a copy of the benelli

    Tikka 595 trigger replacement
