  1. Thanks for that but I can’t really get that far away as we are the opposite end of the county.
  2. More than happy to send pics if anyone wants them
  3. Also no proof checks were done when they were given to me and went on my ticket with FEO approval - two weren’t on a ticket at all!! Can’t imagine every used gun that changes hands is proof checked especially when it’s cert holder to cert holder and not through a RFD? Not wishing to do anything illegal but would be an interesting debate for another thread.
  4. The pitting and dents wouldn’t pass the proofing test and walls are fairly thin on 2 of them. I’ll see what FEO advises on Monday
  5. I’ll check that out thanks. Hasn’t been to proofing house to check the barrels but just an opinion
  6. Just wondered if anyone is interested in 3 old hammer guns whose barrels are out of proof? Makers are Joseph Braddell, Altendorf & Wright and Mayne. Actions are reasonably tight and they may serve as either wall hangers, restoration projects or spares. The Braddell is particularly nice in that it has the Purdey-style thumb release on the trigger guard. Off to the local police next week to free up space in the cabinet if nobody can make use of them. Cheers Gillaroo. Not looking to sell but give these away with maybe a small donation to charity.
  7. Contact Fishing for Schools. I'm sure those kids would appreciate it. fishing@ca-foundation.org
  8. Hi everyone Bit of a hopeful request but has anyone got a forend from a Laurona 20g side by side I could purchase? I've got the original forend but previous owner has stripped out all the ejector mechanism for some reason? Just hoping someone has one lying around that is no use to them anymore as unlikely as that is. Thanks in advance Mike
  9. Hi wabbitbosher. If you get another like this please could you let me know. Could spend more if I can trade a few in? All the best Mike
  10. 1 pair of moleskin breeks 32w - £20 and 1 pair of Hucklecote tweed breeks 34w - £30. Both great condition and outgrown by my son. Pics added below and price includes postage.
  11. Hi don't suppose the 20g is still for sale?
