    Beretta fixed choke

    Thanks for reply's ,Ive had a 686 \onyx for about 18yrs about 15 yrs ago I left the chokes in that I normally used and they have stayed in,never removed so will be well locked in place.Which Im fine with. The reality is that Beretta have an astronomical amount of models, very very similar to each other,its abit bewildering. Also when looking on GT the Beretta trap guns always seem to have better wood than the equivalent field/game models! Thanks again toads

    Beretta fixed choke

    Hi All, Im after some advice concerning which Beretta models are fixed choke. I would be looking at 686,687,mostly,but newer used ones in the same sort of price bracket. Im not really a fan of chopping and changing chokes. Any advice appreciated.

    I bought a Kofs 28 bore the day before my shoots keepers day last season. I was back gun most of the day mopping up pricked birds, and some missed ones.Didnt hit everything but was very pleased with how it performed.It feels like a "proper" gun. As has been mentioned £500 happy customer. atb toads

    An expensive morning

    Hi spandit,My L200 glass exploded few weeks ago.Id had it up for an hour in the sun while working .It def blew up!!.Anyway Ive ended up going down the acrylic route.Toughened glass was in the £150 area acrylic £40. I think it will take a long time before any noticeable discolouring.I had to get clear and will need to drill holes for handles.

    Otter hounds

    Great read. Myself and bunch of friends used to look forward to mink hounds coming up here to Northumberland,river Coquet ,Wansbeck etc.Thoroughly enjoyable. Same with the greyhounds for organised coursing.One day they had 21 courses and two puppie runs and not one hare killed! the club members were over the moon and could not believe the quality of "our hares".

    17 HMR problem

    Hi all, Well had a round blow up on firing is the only way I can describe it. Very shocked what felt like hot metal hitting my face and trigger hand. Ringing in my ears (tinitus which I already had after having radiotherapy). And what turned out to be part of bullet stuck in barrel. I've gave rifle to RFD who has contacted supplier,see what happens but has put me off calibrate for sure.

    wood stock alteration.

    Hi All, Can anyone give me some advice. Im going to buy a 28 bore o/u,probably a Lincoln premier gold. Now they have pistol grip stock and I really like the prince of wales type stock,but you are into bigger money makes/models. Could gunsmith/stocker convert a normal stock,and any idea of price.Thanks toads
