    Sorted via a PM on here. Many thanks, GBS

    Inexpensive .22LR

    Bolt action, ideally with a basic scope and moderator. Happy with scruffy but not worn out, please. C. £200 or less. Scottish Borders. GBS
  3. I disagree. Webley may well have been the mainstay of the trade but they weren't cheap or of poor quality. They were popular, made in quantity and exported around the works so perhaps more like a Beretta/Browning/Miroku today. You can have the basic one or you can have a shiny one. GBS

    Duck guns

    Greener 'Far Killer'. 30", Full and extra full. 42g 3s for the geese. 1920s.
  5. Yes please. This will be perfect for my boy. PM to follow. GBS
  6. J Blanch, 16g BLE, 28" barrels with useful choke of 3/8 and 5/8. This gun continues to surprise me with its ability at longish range. G Being both a Greener and a 16g fan, I like this a lot!
  7. I have two, both 12g although one built for game (6 1/2lb) and the other for duck shooting (7 1/2lb). Oddly it is the 'Far Killer' duck gun that is auto safe. Absolutely fine to use as long as there is enough grip to the safety catch otherwise a cold or gloved hand can slide over the top. GBS
  8. I was considering the first. The second iwas a fleeting thought but it is very difficult to retain the balance and handling which then defeats the point or buying this type of gun*. Sadly i am not Stebbing and i'd be jolly cross at Grandpa for selling the Beesleys if i was! * Does anyone have any experience of having a really good sleeving job done? The sort of job where it isn't patently obvious that the gun has been sleeved the moment you pick it up? GBS
  9. No worries, thank you. I've tried contacting them. GBS
  10. Thank you but these are from a different lot in the September Auction. I am after June. Similar guns though. GBS
  11. Not at all, the same lot has reappeared elsewhere with a slightly different description and i'm doing my homework.....
  12. Good afternoon, Does anyone have a copy of the bore and wall measurement information for the June 2018 sale? In particular, lot 1301? Thanks, GBS
