  1. Morning folks, I have an Eiber 12 bore side by side shotgun i'd like to give away to a youngster starting out, or to a disabled person needing help to get started. I've used it, and several friends have for hide decoy pigeon shooting, and it works a treat. No damage i can see, bar a bad re-varnish by someone. I've no idea what the chokes are, but i could measure them later today, and hopefully someone can tell me? All i ask is for the RFD charges be paid by the recipient. I was hoping someone my end would do it for free in these circumstances, but the RFD has said no. It was worth a try.... No idea about cost of transfer both ends. Around £40 i would hazard a guess? It has no takers at the moment, (Prob due to transfer fees and sbs not being worth much) I will be posting it on other forums. Cheers Chaz.
  2. The shotgun went to js2key's son for clay work. I couldn't be more pleased. Nice to to meet you folks. Enjoy! Cheers Jamie
  3. a deposit ( refundable if the close up pictures show any issues ) im sure they wont but it is still mounted to my rifle. Darren Money sent. Cheers Darren. Jamie Hi Darren, I'll take it. Obviously pending some high resolution pics as discussed. What's the email i can send £50 to just to hold it? Presuming £50 is OK? Cheers Jamie Hi Darren, I've sent the deposit. Cheers Jamie

  6. Sorry to be a pain folks, but my heads all over the shop with scopes. Shops being the right word too!! Paying what seems about right. To what seems more than necessary, for what i want or need to spend to "Over scope" it... I've read lots of good things about the Delta Titanium 4.5-30×50 IR SFP Riflescope, £735 new. But is it OTT for shooting 350 yards max with a .223 Rem Tikka T3? Just to point out i don't do a lot of low light shooting, and like a bit of target shooting, but tend to do that with my hefty lump of a Tikka Tac1 in 6.5CM with a great Vortex scope that's great out to my ability of 700-900 yards. (But it's not illuminated or FFP which is what i want next??) I was thinking more of the latest Vortex Strike Eagle 4-24×50 EBR-4 SF SFP Rifle Scope. £500 new. Or a Vortex Viper PST Gen II 5-25×50 SFP Illuminated 30mm Riflescope for £900+ Yet more (Constructive) opinions requested??? Opinions asked elsewhere too. Cheers Jamie
  7. That's the thing Baldie. I was told that you can look through 3 of the identical make and model of scope and still find that 1 has terrible glass when comparing it to the other 2. Can that really happen?? I'm also failing to see where buying a Vortex Strike Eagle 4-24X50 EBR-4 SF SFP at £500, Or paying double to get a Gen 2 Vortex Viper 5x25-50 SFP. Both illuminated??? Would that extra £500 make that much difference over around 350 yards? Decisions decisions....
  8. Thanks folks. I'd love something nice and expensive (To me anyhow) Say a £1000. But i have a long range scope and rifle. I only need something to shoot out to 350 yards. I agree Scotch, i'm thinking sfp, I could do illumination for dust, low light. I'd also like moa/moa, just as that's what i know. Not getting wrapped up in scope "fashion" Not even sure what is in fashion with regards to scopes at the moment.... A very nice person at Optics Warehouse, said to have a think about a Delta Stryker 4.5-30x50 IR and SFP. But i know nothing of this scope?? I'm a bit put off by the 10 year warranty compared to the lifetime on Vortex's regardless of how many owners... I've had a play with a forum members Vortex Viper PST 5-25x50 Gen 2 sfp illuminated which was very good of him, and a great scope. But having done lots of research on a Vortex Strike Eagle 4-24x50 EBR-4 SF SFP Illuminated, it seems a great scope, especially for under 400 yards, and id a tad under £500, and a lifetime warranty. I just wish i knew someone who had one for some direct opinions. Cheers Folks.
  9. Hi Darren, Can i have first dibs on the scope considering your away until Weds? Does it come with any scope caps? Cheers Jamie
  10. First dibs if possible please. Does it has illuminated reticle? Could i also have some close up decent pics to my email, which i'll pm you with. Cheers Chaz.
  11. As above, at this moment in time if after a, Vortex Viper PST 6-24×50 FFP moa/moa Illuminated Reticle scope. Will also consider another Vortex, like - Vortex Diamondback Tactical 6-24×50 FFP moa/moa Non Illuminated Riflescope Vortex Viper HS LR 6-24X50 XLR moa/moa Vortex Strike Eagle 4-24×50 EBR-4 SF SFP moa/moa illuminated reticle. Vortex Diamondback Tactical 6-24×50 FFP moa/moa Non Illuminated Riflescope. Must all be in moa/moa, close to mint as possible, and would prefer it to come with all accessories, paperwork and box. Cheers.
  12. Hi folks, I'm trying to get hold of a very cheap (as possible) scope for a young teenager who's the son of a friend. The son got interested in shooting from going with me a couple of times just to shoot targets at that point. And after chatting with his Dad who used to target shoot air rifles, he agreed to allow me to give his son an old but good working order SMK break barrel in .22. He's had the gun for around 6 months now. He's only been given it on the basis that his Dad has possession of it, and he only uses it when supervised by me or his Dad. Now he's got to grips with safely using the gun and the open sights, he's been hinting at a scope. I know the family doesn't have a great deal of cash to splash about, hence giving him the air rifle. But a few days back i gave his Dad a 4 x 40 Nikko Sterling Silver Crown and some cheap mounts i had. Unfortunately the reticle is stuck and it wont zero, or adjust. I feel a tad bad about this, but i had no idea or other scope that i could give him. So i'm hoping a PW member has an old but good working order 4x32 or 4x40 scope they're willing to sell/donate plus post. Any takers out their please drop me a PM. Cheers Jamie Just to be up front, I have asked the same on another forum.
  13. I've got it back. It'll be in the post. Jamie I'll need you address again.
  14. No Problem Bob. And no worries, i'll post back at my cost, as you were good enough to send it free to me first off. Just let me know your address and i'll post it back. All i ask if for a few days to sort family matters out, if that's OK? Thanks for your generosity Bob. Regards Jamie. I'll send it signed for, so someone will need to sign for it. Had too many losses in the post to risk it. Regards Jamie
  15. Hi Bob, He's well chuffed. Especially as he got to pick 1 of what turned out to be 3! He went for a multi magnification to start, but he struggled, and after some adivce it was the 6x40 Simmons, a class act! And he went for it. I'm a little concerned, as i now have 2 left. I have some personal issues regarding the dreaded "C". So i may give it to Ian, a fellow shooter who lives in the same road as me. He can then decide who deserves/is advanced enough to have what. Apologizes for not updating you. To cut a long story short my mum pissed off when i was small, and my Aunty looked after me and brought me up to a degree. She's been very sick with cancer and fought it for 3 years it spread. She dided 2 hours ago. Very shocking but not unexpected, Regards Jamie
  16. As above, bought new, in perfect condition, with all accessories including the box. Lovely scope, with great illuminated repeatable turrets. Selling due to upgrade. Pictures via email. New £430, selling for £330 delivered via Special delivery. Cheers. Also advertised elsewhere.
  17. Hi Shotgunner, I already have a boxed as new Sidewinder 6-24x and you're right, they're cracking scopes. The only reason i'll be selling it as it doesn't suit my eyes. Or i'd be keeping it! Cheers.
  18. Vortex Viper PST 6-24x50 in MOA, the scope is FFP and has illuminated reticle. Story of my life. That black cloud following me around..... Cheers anyhow.
  19. First dibbs please. Vortex viper 6-24x50 PST MOA FFP -£450
  20. Hi folks, As above really. I absolutely love my Viper HSLR and have really got into FFP scopes. I know the PST has illuminated ret, and and i'm hoping both can be moa/moa, and the PST has the EBR-1 ret, and believe mine is an XLR? ret And both are FFP. But please could somebody explain what the other differences are? Rather than the sales blurb that the manufacturers push out. As far as i can see both have 65 moa elevation, but the PST has 1/4 increments, where the HSLR has 1/2 moa adjustments. I think?? Some constructive opinions appreciated.

    Straight line recoil

    Bipods are great!
  22. Thanks Topscots1. By the sounds of it, very little difference then. Cheers.
