    GRS bifrost

    Thanks for the response guys.as you probably know GRS make left grip/right bolt in many of their laminate models ,I first enquired in the autumn of 2018 about the availability of the BIFROST in such a format for the tikka. T3 and was told early 2019 ..I emailed them in Feb to be told early April and last week was informed there were no current plans for such a model . I believe the full lefties have been available for a few months now ..Apart from milling out a right bolt recess I believe some material has to be removed for the bolt release pin. cheers

    GRS bifrost

    hi guys .well after being promised that .. grs..Were gonna release their bifrost stock in right inlet{/left grip format they now say they have no current plans of doing so .So I asked that if I bought a full left hand stock would it be just a matter of cutting out a recces for the bolt on the right side,their answer was probably but consult a gunsmith to make sure (personally I thought they would have known factually) so my question is have any of you guys had any experience of fitting a right inlet into a left stock???Thanks in advance cheers

    sabatti mrr

    Hi Guys .Thinking about treating myself to 6.5 cm and like the look of the SABATTI ROVER TACTICAL .my question is if the Mrr rifling is so great ie accurate,faster velocities, longer barrel life why don't other companies like tikka,remington, savage and winchester adopt this method?.I would like to get the opinions of any SABATTI owners ? ps sorry if this topic has already been flogged to death

    No just the postage to optics warehouse .I got a call on Tuesday from OW to check the return address and it was delivered by dpd yesterday,I thought that I would be paying p+p and repair/parts as a new turret was fitted so yes o was delighted . cheers 👍

    Scope returned yesterday via OPTICS WAREHOUSE..all sorted new turret fitted and inspite of me accidentally damaging it repair done FREEOFCHARGE...so IOR customer service ain't so bad after all.. cheers

    As I mentioned earlier my scope was the mutts nuts and worked perfectly in all aspects until I dropped it and damaged the windage turret . Personally I wouldn't have thought it wouldn't have been a problem to drop a replacement turret in a jiffy bag and send it to me(I can buy hawke or sightron turrets easily) but no it had to be sent back to the factory .I thought when optics warehouse said expect 3 months I thought they were being .. overly cautious.. and that I would have it returned sooner . only to be told on Monday that IOR are ... dealing with it.... whatever that means If only their customer service was the same quality as their glass cheers 👍 .

    ICOtec GC500 PROGRAMMABLE Remote Electronic Fox Call - Any Good ?

    Yep works well .I usually place mine 200 yards away and use the decoy device. then select a call and wait . The remote works well within that range cheers
  12. bighairyhaggishunter


    I had no issues with the glass.the turrets aren't overly clicky but they are positive and accurate and certainly not mushy.. indeed I have no complaints about the scope it's a great piece of kit . zero stop is not something that I need or use I know how many turns I'm on .my issues are with IOR C's.ie not answering emails , if I hadn't damaged the scope myself I would never found out how bad they are .... unlike Optics warehouse.. from where I purchased the scope, hopefully when it returns I won't drop it again and I'll never have to deal with their customer service again....PS some of the guys in my club have nfs /s&b/kahles/Steiner/vortex etc and the glass is comparable with any of these cheers

    I have a ior 6x24x56 ffp scope that I accidently dropped [AAAAAAAARGH] great scope great glass , but the damage was to the windage turret I contacted ..OPTICS WAREHOUSE.. who asked IOR to send over a turret that I could have fitted myself .After one month of no response from the factory it was advised to send it back to ROMANIA for repair with a 3 month wait [which seems excessive ]all though no fault of OPTICSWAREHOUSE .So ten weeks have passed and I wait with baited breath on the return of my scope so watch this space?
