    Pedant alert! It is a brake. Sorry one of my "nails down a blackboard" things/Is ugly though. David.
  2. Just loved that Woodsman of yours. Just seemed to shoot where you looked. David.
  3. No idea on the price but the upcoming Wilson55 ( Wilson55.com ) firearms auctions has a various Lee Enfield magazines in it so there might be something to suit. Certainly worth a look. David.
  4. Dave, thanks for this. I accept your point completely. The point I was making that at the closer ranges people would be able to try out the whole experience without the trouble of altering the set up. In most cases the standard setup would cope with the distance and if people liked the 2hole ides they could get a sloped rail and move on. I just wondered if the fact that people had to spend extra money and change their setup for an unknown quantity prevents people even trying the event. Tegards, David.
  5. An opportunity for shorter long range stuff might be good. People could dip their toes into the water and see if they enjoyed it without having to invest in sloping rails and stuff. Most people could probably manage out to 300 with a standard deer legal rifle and with a bit of luck and maybe a 12 o'clock hold even out to 600. Probably a good plan to get more people interested. David.
  6. Sorry for the partial hijack but is it true that Caldwell are producing a similar product for quite a lot less? David.
  7. This is true about many sites, but to be fair to wilson55 you can register to bid through their own on-line portal for no charge. David.
  8. Thanks, and best wishes to you all from me too. David.
  9. Just to put the cat amongst the pigeons I have just accumulated a Browning SA 22 to get back a bit of a misspent youth when I had one mainly as a snake rifle. As soon as Mark Drakeford lets us out to play I expect to have a lot of fun. It is the first semi 22 design ever built. In production for over 100 years so something might be right in the design. Bit of history and a lot of fun. David.
  10. +1. They have the specialist glues and a clamping system. David.
  11. Bidding the wall can be risky because if the other bidder drops out the house has to pay. I have bought and sold a few things in local auctions and find little evidence of shady dealing. (perhaps I am just a bit dim) The rules are quite strict now. What is sometimes seen as bidding the wall is bidding commission bids and that is fine. David.
  12. Oh yes, it is one of my complaints about auction houses. If they are working for the seller (and charge a fee) their duty is to get the highest price, if they are working for the buyer (and charge a fee) their duty is to get it for the lowest price possible. Just a slight conflict of interest! I can remember when auction houses only charged the seller. David.
  13. It is 22% + VAT! It is OK if you remember that and do your sums first, but as Leeman said please remember to do them. David.
  14. There is an auction of shooting stuff at the end of Febuary. Some reloading stuff, and bits in weird old calibres, even an old single stack Lee Metford magazine. Barnard target set up and a Lee Enfield sporter in there too Might interest someone on here . I have no interest in the site. wilson55.com David.
