  2. billy of the year!
  3. try a set of these, will screw into nearly frozen ground. have used these for years and they are still in 1 piece. dinsmore syndicate banksticks
  4. ok tks for the info, i will make the call and see what they can do.
  5. oo, thats interesting. i will see how this homebrew pans out. Never found anyone who has got one before!! all the forums are full of people saying they dont do them in the uk. i stand corrected,and need to have a chat with my dealer who confirmed they are not available! stu p.s. what price did you pay?
  6. at least the raptors had a flat base to the pad, i added 1/2 inch to mine. my grifone has now expired ! stock/barrel/trigger group/action available for sale.
  7. 101 uses for a mousemat ! not perfect but the pigeons won't know. Has anyone else had the problem of finding an extension for their franchi affinity ? From what i can find the importer has decided not to stock/sell/import the TSA extended pads for this shotgun. So, i got to thinking about making one of my own. The pics show how i got on. I now have a LOP of 14.5 which matches the dimensions of my old 712 which has now expired (parts available if anyone needs them). I know the stocks are a different shape and they have changed a lot of the dimensions,but it comes up better than ever now. Just need to get it patterned and i will feel more confident. Stu
  8. i will take 2 pse. send details for payment
  9. go nicely with the carrier and 6 x bren guns the buyer has .
  10. Yes I will take these please. Will be collected
  11. i may have a buyer for you, not me. but a work colleague who actually has a fully functional roadworthy bren carrier!! can you hold until i see them tomorrow?? stu
  12. 4 hares plus i was carrying 1 as well.....ouch! every time one came close i had to drop it, then pick it up again. tried to get one in the netting but was a bit big to fit. those were on just 1 drive. only about a 1/2 mile walk. bag was well tested... so was i bag for the day was around 200
  13. had mine a few years now, spot on with no issues. you can get 4 hares in there at a push...thats a test for any bag.
  14. if you can still find them, altberg field and fell. good quality leather and very comfortable. picked up a pair a couple of years ago for £70 new. just like wearing slippers. buy a half size big if you can as they a comfy fit.
  15. wish i could still get em,great shell. english 5.5
  16. i have had 3 franchi auto's, all gas operated and i still have 2 now. i kept both 712's one is a std black action the other a grifone with nice wood stock. the 912 3.5 inch i sold went to a wildfowler and was a bit of a beast, not really for pigeon loads!! will never part with the 712's. piston settings are only really a problem on a light load, what did you want to use yours for??
  17. had a franchi 912 for a while, that was a 3.5inch chamber. a real beast!!
  18. just been to get a slab of shells and had a bit of a shock. even the basic power pigeon shells have increased form around £45 a slab to £55 !! 2 letters, 1 from gamebore 1 from another manufacturer on the counter blaming lead prices. has lead really gone up by 20%? whats it like in your dealers?
  19. nice one, used to love lure fishing for them. nice to see it held low over a mat,as you know.. they are fragile fish. lost all the enthusiasm after my "30"
  20. silver solder! if done right.plenty strong enuff.
  21. a sign of the times i think,i purchased mine back in 1988. with all the cost cutting etc the stock would be a good place to start cost cutting. iam not against plain stocks,1 of my franchis has a plain black plastic stock and i love it. care is nearly zero!!
  22. oh yes its well weighted. almost smack on the pin. think this passes a a good bit of wood.... p.s. i will get that forend to you,sometime!
