    Tikka T3 Bolt Shroud

    Here you go: https://www.mmsporting.co.uk/shop/manufacturers/tikka-t3-custom-parts/tikka-t3-custom-bolt-shroud/ Pete
  2. Inject polyester or epoxy resin mixed with filler in the stock bolt holes to give a solid region where strength is needed, then drill and add pillars to taste............at least, that's what I'd do. I assume the Bifrost is the cheapest option? Pete

    AMP DIY Alternatives - Induction Annealing

    The second link is just for the wire coils, not the heater.....read the description. (Unless Condition 1 meant that you'd need both?) This is a regular ploy used on ebay........... Pete

    The mini-USB power lead socket on the Labradar is ridiculously flimsy for such a piece of equipment............a standard USB would have made more sense. I'm looking at ways to modify mine. Pete

    CWC !

    Well at least it's reassuringly expensive, like the "high end" brands......... Pete

    AMP DIY Alternatives - Induction Annealing

    Might just be worth a punt for 170 squid................ https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1000W-Mini-Ductor-Magnetic-Induction-Heater-Kit-for-Automotive-Flameless-Heat-HQ/363212174584?_trkparms=aid%3D1110006%26algo%3DHOMESPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D225114%26meid%3D6e60b0a83c2e47749384798dad7b257b%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D12%26mehot%3Dco%26sd%3D133374189909%26itm%3D363212174584%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D0%26pg%3D2047675%26algv%3DSimplAMLv5PairwiseWebWithDarwoV3BBEV2b%26brand%3DUnbranded&_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851 Has the ebay money back guarantee.............FWIW I agonised for days before ordering a tumbler from China, but it turned out to be fine, and is still working a couple of years on.

    Auction, may be interesting to some.

    Presumably, the auction house takes a fee from the seller as well? Pete
  9. Not heard of that, but it would certainly make it much more interesting. They're very nice rifles in their original form, but if you like tacticool, at this price, this one's a no-brainer. Pete
  10. I'm sure this "should not" as opposed to "must not" confusion is deliberate. Pete
  11. What I'd really like to know is that if I drive from a tier 4 zone into an adjacent tier 4 zone to a legally open venue, according to the govt. website ie Bisley, will I be breaking the law?........................anyone?? Any police officers out there? Pete
  12. Sounds like it.......the Sportco target rifle I've used was a single shot, this one: Sounds like the bolt lugs are machined in the barrel itself, which would make re-barreling a bit tricky........... https://www.thamesvalleyguns.co.uk/SportcoM44.pdf Pete
  13. When an ad for this appeared earlier in the year, I think it turned out to be a Sportco, but I may be wrong. Pete
  14. I've managed to shoot throughout the inter-lockdown period without getting anywhere near members of NRA staff. The online booking system & electronic targets have made this very easy, and long may it continue. Pete
