    Tac a1 stock replacement

    Isn't it just a T3 action, should be able to drop it into any T3 stock

    Just reading his advert had alarm bells ringing for me, normal people don't reply like that, it was more like manufacturers blurb

    17 hornet or 17 remington

    I have a 17rem and really like it, accuracy is good and recoil barely noticable , I have it set up as my NV deicated rifle due to the flatness of the round. Downside, Brass, you will struggle to get it now, PPU used to list it but don't anymore, I was lucky and got over 100 once fired remington on here. 17FB might be a better option, a friend of mine has one, good performer but I think you'll have to get one built
  4. I bought a normal golf bag trolley for £5, just bungy the rifles to is and carry a peli case with any bits in I need

    Tikka 695 stock

    £223.99 if bought in the UK, annoying as you used to be able to get them delived to your door for £125 (depending on exchange rate), I do like Boyds but I find the pistol grips a little on the slim side

    Tikka 695 stock

    Richards microfit (I have one on my M595) and Boyds both have inlets in various styles, Boyds aren't the bargain they once were and you might have to wait for a sale to buy direct or buy through sportsman guncentre , not sure what Richards microfit policy is on sending to the UK

    Tikka 695 stock

    Any stock could be made to fit, cost might be the issue preventing it. The later Tikka's (T3) are different actions, not as deep and not totally flat, I think if you google tikka actions it will show a picture of an M595 and T3 side by side

    Sling Help

    SA80 sling, ideally have the swivels mounted on the side of the stock. The rifle will be diagonal across the front of the body, undo the fastex clip and it will release (but still be attached to the body) to allow you to shoot

    3-in-1 - all weather - jacket for LR shooting?!

    Arktis Defender, I spent a few hours lying prone in the snow at -4° and never felt cold, although for general shooting a snipers smock would be ideal and just buy a cheap waterproof to put over it when the rain comes
