  1. If anyone is looking for a 12 gauge BPS last time I looked Macleods at Tain had a black synthetic one still for sale.
  2. I gunman, not sure if anything is broken but as it’s working I will leave alone!
  3. Took the pliers to it this morning and a little tweak seems to have levelled it out. I can now insert and withdraw a fired cartridge with ease from both barrels. Yet to fire a shot for a full test but all looks good. Thanks to everyone for their help. cheers Mark
  4. Yes when fully seated it looks fine, just off line at full extraction. Will give the pliers a go tomorrow. cheers
  5. I started a new thread as the old one was way down the list. The original problem was fired cartridges in the right barrel where incredibly hard to pull out. Okay an update on the problem! i had a much closer look today after scrubbing the chamber yet again. It appears that the problem is caused by the extractor. With the barrels off the gun and the extractor duly seated flush with the chambers a fired cartridge will fit comfortably in both barrels and is easy to pull out. Assemble the gun and try to insert the same cartridge into the right barrel and it is ve

Whats the fix, a new

  8. I was using Winchester Drylocks 42grm No 1 for the geese for a couple of years then went down to Gamebore mammoths 36grm No 1. Duck, 32grm Gamebore No 4. The 42grm No 1 through the Kicks Extra full was great pattern and would shoot them as far as you wanted.
  9. I have a SXP that has been pretty heavily used on the foreshore. Great fowling and pigeon gun, as above the pump moves back by itself and this took me a little time to get used to and would catch me out with 3.5 inch shells as the recoil was enough for it to pump itself with out me realising, I would then pump it and find a live shell at my feet and think their was fault with the gun! It works well with the Kicks hi flyer extra full. The only time I had a problem with mine was when it locked up completely as I tried to pump it to eject a fired shell. Couldn't get it to budge for anything
  10. Hi Al, another great vid. The quality of the old vids was good but I think there is a notable improvement in quality with the new camera. Shame about the greylag not making the scene! Cheers
  11. Hi Iain, that’s great information, thank you very much. I know most of the places you mention as I come up every year for a family holiday and some trout fishing. with regards to the fore shore, the way I read your post I still need the land owners permission but from what you say most farmers are fairly obliging about permission on the sea shore? cheers
  12. Another great vid. So what was the outcome of the double gunning, any preference? i noticed you had rather a good bag/rucksack, what make is it and how many decoys can you get in it? cheers flipper

    Orkney

    I hope to be in Orkney in January and was going to take the gun and dog along. I know that there is no free fore shore shooting (?) as in the rest of Scotland but is there anyway to get some fore shore shooting. i am a Wildfowler and shoot plenty of geese on the firths around Inverness so I am not really interested in goose guides and decoying. A few mornings or evenings on the shore after duck would be good though. Anyone any suggestions? cheers
  14. Al, great videos as usual. Re the gun, I thought you had a semi auto last season and looked at a pump for this year? cheers
  15. Wife had one for a year, two litre (?) petrol model. Bought from her friend at 7 years old, 62 plate. Full service history and known owner 50k on clock so we thought great buy. One year on just sold it following a 2k engine repair bill for a stretched cam chain at 52k. Bloody shameful. Google tt cam chain issues, known problem with a poorly designed tensioner. 2 class actions in the states against Audi. but a good looking car and fun and fast!
