    Coffee plunger thermos mug, non leak - does it exist?

    Well the Aeropress has arrived thank you. The initial results were disappointing - a nice cup of luke warm coffee - but I seem to be getting the hang of it.

    Stainless .22lr barrel

    Thank you for that. Do you have more information, pictures, build thread please? Sorry for the unintentional hijack.

    Stainless .22lr barrel

    On the basis that it is unlikely that the barrel was shot out, may I ask why?

    Coffee plunger thermos mug, non leak - does it exist?

    Great thank you. Off to find one as I don't like the new version of Nescafe Gold Blend.

    A bit of a thread resurrection I know but a question for the Aeropress users - do you actually get piping hot as in too hot to drink coffee out of these please?

    Rats in my shed

    I successfully use pasta rat poison packed inside 6 ft lengths of drain pipe running on all sides of the shed where we store bird seed. The initial consumption was alarming - indicating the size of the problem but now there doesn't seem to be any about!

    BSA Martini

    That’s very nice. I always wanted one of those especial the Venom conversion. I bought a rifle to have converted but oddly enough my Martini Action .22 rimfire is based on a Boer War 577/450! I keep wanting to chop the barrel as you have done but that doesn’t feel right. It has a very early BSA tang rear sight and a previous owner had it threaded. l had a scope mount installed. With a moderator and subsonic rounds, literally the firing pin is the loudest sound you hear. If someone was interested in a larger calibre conversion ...

    Metal to Metal Glue / Adhesive recommendations please

    Thank you all for the advice. I had discounted Araldite because I had thought that it wouldn't be suitable for sheer stresses? Mind you looking at the poster advert...I must be wrong!
  9. Good afternoon. I have an older pcp rifle where the trigger block mounts are a pair of flanges which protrude at each end of the block. 1 of these is broken around the mounting hole. I have the broken bit and would like to re-attach it. The block appears to be of a non-ferrous alloy. What type of glue would work please? J-B Weld or Quick Steel or is there a more specialist glue that would be better? Many thanks

    Walnut stock

    I have a left hand 64 action 1417 but am looking for another - preferably a 54 action but left 54 action's don't seem available anymore. Was yours shot out?

    Walnut stock

    Are you using a 54 or 64 action? Repeater?

    Walnut stock

    Good morning Did you get anywhere with this - I am about to start a similar search. Depending what you have maybe we could do a stock swap. I know Customstocks of Sheffield can inlet for Anschutz as they do the stocks for the importers. However the stocks have to be bought through the importers as they own the rights.
