  1. Might help if you state the calibre for the brass and bullets!

    Leupold Mk5/6

    I’m not sure whether that’s all of them or just the 3-18 in SFP. The American market have taken up a load of the Optika6s as by all accounts they’re very good value for money. I’ve got a 4.5-27x50 FFP MRAD on order but the dealer isn’t sure when it’ll land. Once I get my hands on it I’ll post my thoughts but it won’t be until the new year at least!

    Booties ditch SA80 for C8

    Indeed, and the kit we have to generate them doesn’t seem very fit for purpose! I’m no armourer but are there new receivers still around? It would seem as if they’d wear out eventually. Only 200,000 were converted to A2 so is that stock finite?

    That could lead us down a whole new rabbit hole with coordinate category! But to bring it back on track... Is direct impingement still considered the better method of cycling the action over gas piston? And unless I’m out of the loop and they’ve already begun, it will be very interesting to see what is trialled to replace the A3. Not that it doesn’t serve a purpose currently, more that at some point they will reach a stage where they’re not repairable/upgradeable!

    I should have posted these..

    This is the first housing that has been vapour honed and anodised. Not sure on a timeframe for the others but I’ll keep everyone posted.

    The rest of the batch is here! Unfortunately there will be a delay to them being vapour honed and anodised but hopefully it won’t take too long! They all fit and function perfectly.

    From Greg at Parabellum Consulting - ‘use a 29mm crows foot & torque to 30ftlb.’

    Unfortunately the manufacturers have had an air pipe burst on their CNC machine! I’m hopefully picking some up on Thursday and will aim to drop them off to be anodised the same day. Watch this space!

    By way of an update, we’re currently working on making this compatible with double trigger SSG 69s as well. They’ll be slightly behind the single trigger versions but I hope it won’t take too long if anyone would like one!

    Cheers Roy, I’m glad we’ve finally reached this stage! Alpha1 - PM sent!
