    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.

    22lr barrel length vs accuracy/velocity

    I think this will tell you all you need to know: http://ukvarminting.com/forums/topic/13608-rimfire-barrel-length/
  16. Thank you for the advice and comments. What I am trying to do is ascertain the difference between what I am entitled to do and what the police want me to do as in the case of the OP.
  17. Great to see that this turned out well from your point of view. I was drawn to this thread on the basis that I potentially have a similar problem albeit relating to an Air Rifle that I wish to self convert to FAC and I do have permission to acquire one. The AIr Rifle in question is one of those that is particularly easy to tune yet Police Scotland want me to pay an RFD to do this for me. They claim that they need evidence that it is producing the required energy!? Bearing in mind that it is highly likely that all air rifles in Scotland are going to shortly be licensed anyhow, My preference is to do the work my self and then notify them. Am I wrong in thinking that this is acceptable?
  18. I am looking at a used 22-250 which is being sold by a dealer. It will apparently come with a 1 year warranty however I really don't want to get into an endless debate in the future, I would rather try to ensure I have undertaken all necessary checks before I part with my cash. What should I look for and check please? Can I expect that the dealer will let me use his bore scope? All advice gratefully received.

    Buying a used .22-250 advice please.

    Thank you all for the advice. I will try to see it again this weekend.

    Buying a used .22-250 advice please.

    It will be used mainly for foxes etc. So reloading advice would be great thank you - I need to get equipment first! I also need to ensure I am not buying future misery!

    Buying a used .22-250 advice please.

    Hi Dave Thank you for your advice. The rifle in question is a Tikka m590. I am assured it is in good nick from a known acceptable source ( or they wouldn't have bought it in). There is a slight issue with the quick release mount which looks Araldited. I am hoping to get it for £400 or less if that seems reasonable?

    Valkyrie Rifles new shop.

    Good luck with the move. Piccies would be good!
  23. Good afternoon, The recoil pad on my Remington 700 H-S Precision Stock is damaged - Torn at the toe and needs replacing. Ideally I would like to source and fit a straight replacement but haven't been able to find one. Any ideas where to get one please? If these aren't available, what should I use instead please? Many thanks

    Which boots ?

    A few years ago I needed some new boots and at a friends recommendation went to the Altberg factory (a 300 mile roud trip) to be fitted. I had to throw away my preconceptions and went with their recommendations - Meindls with aftermarket innersoles. In fact I bought 2 pairs, a pair of Burmas and a pair of Dovres. Best move I have made. I then bought another light weight nylon pair on fleabay. I would recommend at least 2 pairs of what ever you buy to give them a chance to dry out.
