  1. I have used a vacuuming cleaner before using a light line ,no leaks and make sure it’s free on the feed end, then work up to a line that will pull through the intended line . its got to work.👍 Stour boy.
  2. What’s a rivet joint apart from the obvious ? Stour-boy
  3. Many thanks gents, I settled for Walker 570s choice in the end, it arrived yesterday have yet to get it up and running but looking forward to results. will do as you suggest Walker570 but with a kicker at the bottom of the rod ie letter “h”so I don’t damage the casing. Many thanks for your responses Gents Stour- boy.
  4. Has anyone had experience with Trail cameras ? I used to have one but it was a so and so to set up. I want a trail camera that is simple to setup and use. I get lost when I look through Flea bay and other sites. I need something simple and easy to use. Any ideas would be most welcome. Stour-boy.
  5. Hi gents, I am hoping I may have found the problem, the tips of the firing pins on both guns when viewed under a magnifying glass looked like the Himalayas, rough as a badgers backside and I think that the problem was that the primer was being pierced, soo I haves very gently burnished the sharp edges making them a lot smoother. Will let you know how I get on. By the way, As the Darne and the Z.F have sliding breeches there is no requirement for a rebound spring. Thanks for your input gents I hope I am right🤞 S.B.
  6. Hi Gents, OB. very kindly put this thread up for me as i haven’t learnt how to put photos on, the firing pins from what I remember do not have rebound springs. I think it’s one coil spring behind each firing pin. I have some older cartridges tucked away somewhere, I will give those a try and let you all know the results, if they are ok we will know the the primers are made from a thinner gauge of metal. (Copper) ? If so we will be back to black powder and twisted paper 🙄 eventually. Thanks for your input guys and special thanks to Chris who drags me out in all weathers for a bit of sport and banter, nearly forgot, pork pies etc. ps. Still got a chunk of Christmas Stollen for next time. S.B.

  13. Hi Mice, Re Bushnell camera I did replace all of the batteries at the beginning of the week and I know that the camera and card are good due to the time/capacity on the display. I don’t think it likes my MacBook Air, I have spent a lot of time trying to get the camera and the Mac to talk to each other I eventually used a program called ‘VLC as suggested by a p.w. member but it’s still a rigmarole remembering the sequence I don’t find it easy perhaps I ought to get my Grandsons to put me on the right lines.😂😂 S.B.
  14. Hi guys, re formatting sd cards, I have a formatting section on the camera menu which I have tried but it doesn’t appear to do anything, if I check the card first in the display and the check after so called formatting the time to run is still the same
  15. Hi guys, re formatting sd cards, I have a formatting section on the camera menu which I have tried but it doesn’t appear to do anything, if I check the card first in the display and then check after so called formatting the time to run is still the same surely that should increase when the card is cleared and formatted ???. How long should it take to format in the camera ? peck , I have tried brand new sd cards and no improvement but thanks for the thought. i am beginning to think that I am losing the plot. s.b.
