    Anyone use a drone ? (flying type )

    Don't worry, after stating it'd be "for a small fee" it has changed to "I wouldn't charge anything".

    Open certificate rules

    Comply with the conditions on your certificate. If it (your FAC) says you can shoot elsewhere then crack on, if it says you can only shoot in your garden then apply for the condition to be widened.

    The CAA (referencing ANO 2016) states " A permission from the CAA is required for any commercial work with a drone " and then ; "A commercial operation is defined as: ‘flight by a small unmanned aircraft.....in return for remuneration or other valuable consideration.’ " So any flight 'for a small fee' is commercial and permission from the CAA is required. Your location doesn't matter apart from being in UK Airspace.

    GSG 522 mags

    Can't help you Kipper, sorry.

    GSG 522 mags

    Ah, yes, completely misread the GSG and saw SIG. My latent dyslexia perhaps. Ignore my post if it's for the GSG.

    GSG 522 mags

    IIRC They are the same as the Ciener/CMMG ones. Might make it easier to source.

    New barrel breaking in

    And this was due to your cleaning or the shooting of the rifle? You will never know if would have just got better with time without the cleaning between shots. There is no way to prove it works or that it doesn't. No two barrels are exactly alike and therefore you cannot know if the run-in would make it last an extra 100 rnds or more (less?) would it clean easier or not without the run-in. You cannot tell. All you can do is compare it to a different barrel and believe some of the multiple and often contradictory theories on the internet. What is true is that if you are not confident in your equipment or the methods you use then it will always be on your mind and that will affect your shooting. Therefore; do it if it makes you happy, or not, the choice is yours and it can never be proven either way.
  8. Any thoughts? Yep, they are two different rifles, two very different set of components and circumstances. I'm just glad you didn't wonder why it was different to what Quickload said you should get. There is nothing better than empirical evidence to let you know what is happening. Trying to directly equate what happens in your Tikka to what happens in your Sako is a waste of time especially with the different barrels (length and twist and probably exact chamber dimensions too) and you have also changed brass (I can only guess at the difference in case volume)..

    CSR season finale - April 2019

    Glad you enjoyed it. It was a fun match and well run.

    Selling privately via RFD rules

    No, but the law is. If you want to look it up it is F(A)A 1997 s.32(2)(a)-(c) , and if that isn't enough the next subsection states "(3) A failure by the transferor or transferee to comply with subsection (2) above shall be an offence."

    Selling privately via RFD rules

    Read the complete post. 🙄 You cannot sell it and expect the RFDs to sort out the paperwork for you.

    Selling privately via RFD rules

    It is actually against the guidance to give it to your RFD and then shipped and the receiving RFD does the paperwork and notification. You are the seller so you should do the paperwork and notifications (RFD paperwork is just register entries to keep his accounts up to date and check the buyer has it on his license).

    Hertfordshire Police and FEO, great service.

    E Herts, I guess you now have Kevin as an FEO. He seems a good guy and things are still moving quickly at HQ despite everything having to get sent to Cambs for final say.
