  1. Thanks for the offer but a bit too tired looking at that price, £980 new at Blackwoods
  2. Thanks Crossy but looking for something along the lines of the Axion Key XM22 or XM30 for 200-300yd spotting
  3. Thermal Spotter Wanted preferably Pulsar please PM
  4. Google the term "Rusty Fingers", a common term used in engineering where new metal is stained by sweaty handlers, I suspect the bluing/finish on the gun is no where near as good as they used to be, Still using my 1973 Browning Liege, one of the last ones made in Belgium before production went out east which still looks good for its age
  5. if you want some carts for reloading I have some once fired that have been collected over the years, far more that I will ever make use of as have some brass cases now also drop me a PM if needed
  6. I'm figuring 1960's early seventies also, just need to find a collector now or they will stay sat in the cabinet for another age, not worth anything but always like to save a little nostalgia rather than see it dissapear
  7. Also find them pretty accurate and not too noisy I was under the impression that longer barrels increased velocity due to longer time period in barrel, does it make that much difference with sub's being a slightly lighter load Telf's chrono result with 16" show standard plus as 1067 over SK data of 1073 with 26" barrel
  8. bought one of these a couple of years ago, still in use and as good if not better than a previous very expensive £150 spend
  9. hope to get out tomorrow evening
  10. think this would have been a few licenses ago, that's if I had purchased them ...... they came with some others from a friend years ago when he stopped shooting and have been in the cabinet for a while
  11. Can anyone date these for me Please, just found a box in the cabinet
  12. Just going through the same process as down to my last couple of boxes of 40gr Eley's used the SK subs a couple of years ago and they were better than Eley but no longer made in Subs, the SK Standard plus 40gr velocity are 1073 f/s with 26" Barrel so should be slower in shorter 16" barrels, bought some a while back and were accurate but went back to Eley when I managed to pick another batch of 40gr up. just pulled a box out to try later in week
  13. On the lookout for a nice, comfortable, economical cheap to tax, saloon for doing quite a bit of touring in and considering an E Class Merc around 2015-2016, Both C and E Class show to have same figures for tax and mpg but really looking for the size & comfort factor as retirement approaches and E Class possibly fits the bill better. Can anyone give me real life mpg for the 2.1 diesels and recommend which model, Never had a Beemer but 5 series also reckons to score good on comfort. Not had a saloon for years having had xtrail for last 17 years and will keep running it till wheels fall off, daily vehicle is a works van so should be plenty of saloon options for consideration having not been in the market for a while
  14. go on tiresize comparison website and put your size in I have 225 70 16 general grabbers on mine and show to be exact same as yours, no issues with rubbing and plenty of clearance that fit arches better than originals, speedo is now also spot on when compared against satnav
  15. Just had the self same conversation at work today and again back home with my other half, we love to holiday in the UK and sight see etc. and have done for many years and were planning on doing lots more during our planned retirement whilst continuing to support the UK tourist industry but unfortunately the greedy will lose out big time to the foreign trips abroad and I cash my pounds in for Euros or Dollars as will only stand to be ripped off once this year before normality eventually sets back in and we are free to travel as before..... selfishness strikes again and is blind to the long term consequences
  16. thanks for the offer Les, I can pick up the bare trigger housing from US for around £22 which is all I really need to turn back to standard prior to selling rifle as wouldn't sell it on with present trigger mod in place, a complete new sealed assembly from browning is only £99, I presume yours is a complete assembly having fitted the Jard would go to £50 for the complete assembly if sealed https://www.browning.com/content/dam/browning/support/parts-service/gun-parts-price-list/parts/2013/12-arn-432-t-bolt.pdf
  17. Browning T Bolt Plastic Trigger Assembly wanted if any one has one of these left over from changing out for one of the retrofit Jard upgrades
  18. Borrowed it to get me through the day, new Varta battery with four year warranty fitted this afternoon, 11 years from new out of this original one so can't complain. Would be handy to have one of these Jumpers on hand as ironically my works three year old Citan did exactly the same without warning two weeks ago and left me stuck in the morning with it being parked away from house. Also far more more convenient than running around for jump leads and another vehicle to jump off or lugging batteries around
  19. Just had need to borrow an Arteck D29 18,000 MAH Jump Starter to help get through the day as car battery completely flat this morning without any warning and quite impressed with its performance, used 5 times and still showing 95% charge. any recommendations on any better brands for the money out there before I purchase one of these
  20. Pulsar Axion Key XM30 wanted if anyone has one for sale please PM
  21. only if you can get the pipe down past any anti syphon gizmo that might be built into the filler neck, once had to do this with a tank full of petrol put in a megane diesel that got right to front door as it conked out, just made it back home on what was in fuel lines and filter, fortunately sender unit under rear seat, that was around 40K miles ago so must have been lucky that day.
