    100 to 1000 yards scope.

    Big Al was selling his 8-32 Sightron for a good price and it would be well looked after. Between the Tikka tac and RPR, by all accounts I’ve read,it’s the Tikka hands down.

    Thanks,Newsatten and pm sent Baldie. Looks like it’s back to the drawing board.

    Bugger! How do you get a 6br repeater?

    Indeed....thank you Vince. It seems to be the new ESS chassis,looks nice

    Barnard 07 rifle/stock

    Speaking to Mik,from Dolphin, ”the barrel will need to be removed and the collar replaces the recoil lug,the forend tube fits to the recoil collar” I’m not sure what that means,in practical terms,but Vince seems to suggest it’s relatively straightforward. i would prefer a stock that I could fit myself,but I’ve probably got the wrong action for that.

    Barnard 07 rifle/stock

    Hi Pete. If that’s not the case,I’m very pleased. I was assuming that if the barrel was removed ,to fit a collar that would replace and act as a recoil lug,that it would need to be reproofed,but I’m more than happy to be corrected on that. The action is in a GRS stock,that only has the recoil lug bedded and is restricted to single shot. I’d thought about pillar and Devcon bedding it and fitting a magazine system,but if that money was put towards a chassis,it’d be like having a new rifle,that was the thinking anyway. Wish I had a T3, so much simpler 😃

    I was hoping to hear from you Vince,I did read somewhere that you’d built one. I have a couple of concerns about the 07 chassis,the first being the barrel has to be removed to fit a new recoil lug,which will mean it needs to be reproofed and the cost of the work and secondly the use of H-S mags,which I hear can be noisy(?)and whether they will feed the 6br cartridge 100% reliably. Which new MDT chassis are you referring to,the ESS? Thanks

    I’m keen to hear from anyone who has any experience with the Barnard 07 chassis. I’ve been speaking to Mik at Dolphin Rifles, who has one in stock,with a view to fitting it to a SM action in 6br. It would be great to hear from anyone who has owned one or who has worked on. Thanks

  10. As the title suggests,I’m wondering whether H-S magazines will feed 6br 100% reliably? I have a Barnard SM action and I’m looking to put it in a chassis,Dolphin or Barnard 07. Its presently in a GRS,adapted to single shot. If it’s not thought to be 100% reliable,Ill leave it as it is. Thanks in advance
  11. Thanks,I’ll keep an eye out.
  12. They were offering good discounts around Christmas and they were brand new.....
  13. I would take it for £100,if you were prepared to post it.

    Tactical stock or chassis for Barnard SM

    Thanks for the info and link,Catch 22,they look superb. I’ll ask about as to who may be able to import one. Very much appreciate it.
  15. Do you have any 6mm bullets you’re selling?
