    RFD transfer rules

    In Law, anyone can 'own' anything - even firearms. They may not be able to 'hold' them, but ownership does not necessitate possession. I have personally 'brokered' the disposal of firearms, S1, S2 and S5 held by police after confiscating them from the 'owners' father. The 'owner' was disbarred from holding a FAC for life, but it could not preclude him from owning the property, merely 'holding' his property.

    Left Handed Rifles

    C/F or R/F?
  3. First one I tried: Calman, Glasgow, doesn't repair pocket watches - even though he's in the pocket watch repairers register!!.
  4. Eighty views and not one reply??
  5. I've recently inherited a silver 'G. Tasker, Whitechapel' pocket watch and chain (key wind) which wont wind. I've emailed a couple of 'googled' people specialising in old watch repairs and had no replies. Does anyone know of a reliable chap who would look at this for me? Probably not worth spending a lot on - even though its over 200yrs old - but thats not the point for me. Thanks chaps.
  6. I've had a Christensen Classic 18" 308 for a couple of years now. Amazing stalking rifle. So light to carry - and where's the recoil?.

    Remington Sako extractor

    Had one fitted to a high end semi custom build in 2001. Gave me much trouble and definitely not worth it. Subsequent builds have retained original Remington system and been faultless. Save your money.

    Wanted - Rem 700 Bolt (Short Action) - anything considered

    Bet you want a right hand bolt!. Only saying as I've got a brand new S/A bolt body - LH!.

    I like the Omega 'trio' series. Just wish they'd come up with a less 'confusing' wording for their three levels of accuracy.

    Thermal spotter

    Pulsar Quantum XQ 50. Bought by myself last June. Only selling as I'm a 'tackle tart' and want a new model Helion. £2250.

    Accurate Time?

    Thank you Sir.
  12. Recently been checking the consistency (accuracy) of a newly acquired Aqua Terra Seamaster and am finding a considerable difference between the BBC 'pips' (on DAB), GMT on Google search and the 'clock' on my smartphone. Which one is 'real'??
  13. Having been a Rolex devotee for 50 years, I treated myself to a new datejust 2 years ago (cos failing eyesight prevented me seeing the silver batons on the silver dial I had). It has just been sent back to manufacturers as it started losing half an hour per day!!. Whilst I was in Goldsmiths, I took a fancy to an Omega co-axial, purely on the grounds that I knew the inventor and patentee of the movement (George Daniels). What do you 'Wis'' think of the Co-axial?.
