  1. i had one and had the chamber changed to 3 ins sold it on again nice gun just didnt suit me.
  2. Hi Jim do you mind if i pick your brains on the sx2 ? as you see i have been in the process of selling one it is fairly unused i have probably shot 80 shells through it and the owner before me probably less.

    Now i never had a jam or problem with it dry cycling or live fireing i used a 70mm 32 gram shell .

    The chap who has just bought it tried it today and said the shells get jammed every time live or dry firing he was using a 32gram 67mm shell, could that be the issue ? i have said i will take it back but asked him to try with at least 70mm shells as i know Winchester state to use 70 to 76mm in this model.He seems like a great chap and was brilliant and easy to deal with so there is no aggro.I spoke with my local gunshop today and they said he should use at least 70mm shells.I dont want to put any of this on the forum in case i offend him and also because i had 2 others waiting to buy it so i dont want people thinking its duff (obviously i wouldnt try to sell it if it was ) what do you think ?

    1. gun prospectively sold ,sorry to the others maybe i should of asked for more but i will stand by the price stated.
    2. They arent that common same build quality as the o/u japanese, an identicle model just went at the Holts sealed bid auction for £400 plus commision it was in nowere near as good condition as that one.
    3. Why dont you look at the SKB in private sales single trigger ejector perfect and good quality.you might be able to get the price down a bit .
    4. Barrell blacker without doubt contact him on facebook and he will tell you how to post very helpful.
    5. But if we are seeing them surely they are lost !
    6. thanks for the replies having a think as what to get next ,only really wanted for fowling and maybe a few pigeons also a pet ,always had springers but wondered if a lab might suit better .Never had a lab and probably easier to go with what i know ,also looked at Clumber cross springer, lab cross springer just thinking aloud really.My present dog (springer ) who i would never part with has been struggling with lameness due to poor confirmation of his elbows leading to unrepairable damage in both..I would like him to go steady and look after himself but .....I am leaning towards pure Lab but i do love a nice stocky Springer.My springer has no issues with even the biggest Canada goose although i have heard that some struggle .Any more thoughts appreciated.
    7. Just wondered if anyone has any experience of this cross as a gundog they seem to be advertised everywhere at the moment.
    8. The British trust for ornithology has been highlighting this lately driven in my opinion by there x public figure head yes you have guest it a certain Mr Packam.They have built there reputation on un biased scientific research but are in grave danger of losing all credibility whilst following this route.Basc i have been told are aware of this and are not overly concerned. I have recently joined the Bto beleiving them to be an unbiased organisation ,everything i see and read from them makes me question this .My own view is that Basc is being a little naive ,things are changing the government will listen to the Bto is it really unbiased ? Not if it is still heavily influenced by Christopher Packham it aint !
    9. patience is a vertue possess it if you can ....last piece of the jigsaw.
    10. If its the one on Guntrader it has been for sale a very long time and maybe that is your answer .A nice antique but of little practical use as Figgy says small payload and expensive to home load for.

    12. It may depend on your type of gun what will you be using ?
