  1. Really !!!! That’s news to me
  2. Hi looking to sell a brand new unused Peli 1660 case. Bought for a project that did not come off. These go out at around the £400 mark new, looking for £200. Cheers
  3. Before you did the trigger work did you ever get a dead trigger on the initial cocking and attempting to fire. Ie you pull the trigger and it will travel the full distance but not release the hammer ??.
  4. Hi What profile is the stock ??. Is the palm swell the same as the PSS model or slimmer like the old VS types, which is what I’m after. Cheers
  5. Cracking deal for someone I’d say. I’ve the same rifle and it cycles Eley contact Subs like clockwork. Did you do the trigger work yourself ?. Cheers

    Screwcutting Annie Barrels

    Agreed I managed to pick up an old 1427 biathlon rifle that had only ever done a little bit of indoor target work, I had it cut down by 4 inches and fitted a moderator and scope and have used it for the past 19 years for vermin control. The shortening and screw cutting had no effect at all on the accuracy of the rifle.

    Thanks for the input catch 22.

    Like I said it’s not in my nature to poke my nose into others affairs. But on this occasion I was inclined to behave differently. I have no qualms at all at about using my name on any forum I’m on I find that much fairer than the hiding behind a pseudonym like a lot of keyboard warriors. FYI the pic and comments on Facebook were passed on to my FLO earlier on this morning prior to the replies being received.

    Hi All Not one for calling the police or reporting stuff as a rule. But I’m currently away from home working and the mrs sent me a screenshot off Facebook of a guy in the village nearby posting a pic of a browning cynergy he claims to have just acquired !!. Now the problem being is this guy I know for a fact is not a licence holder or ever will be. Two ways to look at it are he’s either a total Walter Mitty or he has managed to get hold of something and is foolish enough to put it on Facebook???. I’ve a good working relationship with my FIrearms liaison guy and am tempted to just forward the screen grab on to him with a heads up on this character. Any thoughts guys ???

    More scottish bans being proposed

    Just standard SNP approach to something that does not interest them or will go down well with the perceived views of the urban power bases they rely on to keep them in power. Remember the state appointed guardian for every child fiasco, the sheer arrogance of that was unbelievable, Air rifle licence etc etc, SNP are blessed with a disgusting amount of we know what’s best for you controlling left wing socialist individuals in positions of authority propped up by the greens. People need to look past the independence rhetoric and actually take a look at how they perform as the governing party in Scotland.
  11. There’s some really nice kit being spoken about here and also some really big numbers money wise. I’m not knocking anyone who has the money and inclination to spend heavily I’ve been there myself with the likes of Armalon Remington 700s, TRG 41s etc etc, the buzz from owning and using such kit is great but to be honest nowadays you don’t have to spend massive amounts to get something that will undoubtedly shoot better than most people are capable of. The one rifle I use the most and have kept the longest is an old Anschutz 1427, don’t underestimate the basic skills you can hone cheaply and unobtrusively with a decent moderated 22lr trainer. Good luck with whatever set up you end up going for.
  12. Cheers Guys Few other people have said the same, seems like a lot of hassle as the actual swap back to non FAC capacity takes about 15 mins utilising all the original parts and could be verified in mins.
  13. Hi All Awaiting some feedback from the local firearms licensing guy ref the option of putting a semi auto shotgun previously converted to section 1 back to a shotgun cert. Wondering if anyone has had any experience of this or any idea what the steps would be. Cheers
  14. Thanks for the reply to the PM. Anyone out there know if any of these are compatible with a Stoeger 3000 semi ?? cheers
