  1. I’ll take the high set. PM how you would like the money. Cheers.
  2. A little bump. Always willing to trade for decent glass...
  3. Putting up my customised Remington 870 s1 shotgun. Since building, it's done absolutely nothing! Remington Express receiver which has been Duracoated "Remington Black". Wolf Hammer and Firing Pin springs and Scattergun Technologies Big Bump safety. Carlson's 24" (Very rare for an 870!) multi choke, vented barrel with fibre optic bead. Nordic Components extended magazine, with a Nordic Components no drag follower, Nordic magazine spring and a Nordic Components barrel clamp. The furniture on this came from a 1970s vintage Remington Police. I left all of the dings, nicks, scratches and stains on it, just removing the varnish and oiling it to maintain its character. Quite frankly, you'll be very hard pushed to find one like this... £675. I'll travel a short distance from Kent to meet or we split RFD costs my end to send it.
  4. Have a bump for a great package!
  5. And actually seen it cheaper elsewhere, so immediate price reduction to £190.
  6. A recent acquisition of mine came with a Geissele SSA-E (Super Semi Automatic - Enhanced) AR trigger. Some sites/forums tout this as the finest AR trigger available. Unfortunately for me, I so much more prefer a single stage trigger. That's now fitted, so this is surplus to requirements... The blurb, shamelessly copied from Brownells; "A lightweight hammer driven by a full-power hammer spring speeds locktime and delivers positive ignition of all ammo types. All contact surfaces are wire-EDM cut to exact dimensions for precise engagement free of play. Direct replacement for factory trigger; may be installed without removing the safety. Operation and parts layout is similar to the USGI M16 trigger for easy maintenance. All springs are captive to simplify field disassembly for cleaning. Hammer and trigger pins are a close slip-fit in nominal .154" (small pin) mil-spec receiver holes to enable installation with basic tools. Super Semi-Automatic-Enhanced (SSA-E) offers an even lighter, 3½ lb. total pull weight, making it an excellent choice for precision Squad Designated Marksman type rifles where both accuracy and reliability are critical. First stage builds gradually to 2.3 lbs., followed by a 1.2 lb. second stage with a crisp, “candy cane-like” break. A semi-auto-only version of the Geissele full-auto combat trigger presently used in the U.S. Special Operations community." The only place this side of the Atlantic that has them in stock for sale, appears to be Brownells UK. They currently list the model at over £350!!! On offer here at £220. Stock pic shamelessly robbed as well!

    HS Precision mags...

    A quick question. I have an HS Precision STR fitted with their bottom metal and detachable mag. Mine is a Gen 1 for which they’ve discontinued the mags! Thinking of a new bottom metal that will accept the AI mags. What ball park figure would I be looking at to have such a conversion done? Likewise, would the existing bottom metal be worth anything? Cheers.
  9. Has it really been 20 years?! Actually longer since the days of Safari and Stone Lodge. Ive even bought one of your old rifles from Adam!! Best of intentions and all that....
  10. Thanks chaps. As I thought, proving problematic....
  11. A dear friend has the following that are now surplus to requirements. GRS stock for a Howa short action, heavy barrel. Nigh on mint condition in mountain green laminate. Will obviously fit Weatherby and Smith and Wesson also. £320 including shipping. Secondly is a Bushnell Elite Tactical 4.5-30x50. Again nigh on mint, boxed. £600. If interested PM me and I’ll give you his number. Solid bloke to deal with.
  12. Posted here as I imagine it fits into the “Anything else”! I’m looking for a cerakote applicator with a s5 authority. I know of a humane dispatch handgun that could do with some TLC. Needs to be in the South East of England as well, given the logistical nightmare, never mind cost, of getting something delivered... any ideas? thanks.
