  1. nice to meet you Mr.C, and I wont tell anyone that it was a 56 jacket either......
  2. a quick thanks to Shaun (bunnykiller) for the nice job he has done to weld the lifter on my benelli m2. nice quick turn round and very reasonable price for completing the work, highly recommended. if any of you semi auto shooting guys and girls want too avoid the dreaded thumb bite get in touch with the man and I'm sure he will be able to sort you out.
  3. I never shot there when it was open, always clashed with other local club shoots, but from memory I was told the land was sold and the new owner didn't like the shoot/noise, although from what I was told they didn't let on they would be stopping the shoot when they were in the process of buying it.
  4. depends on the manufacturer, some are covered, some not, probably best to speak to the importer. I've bought second hand beretta's that have had a transferable warranty that GMK have transferred over. not many do though, as Steve has said most are for original purchaser only. what make is it, someone may know.
  5. no idea to be honest. couple of the Stumbletts guys shoot there occasionally, but I don't know if its a pre booked thing they do. not a ground I've been to myself, you'll have to check their website, or give them a call.
  6. the one at flitteridge wood (fletching) has closed down. you've got Stumbletts at Horam, Mill Farm at Hankham, Stonestile near Hastings, Normanhurst at Catsfield. all Sunday morning shoots. Kingskote at East Grinstead is getting good reviews from shooting mates for weekday open shoots there is Polowood, Southdown, Willow Farm.
  7. alternate weekends (sunday mornings) you have stonestile on the ridge - they have a facebook page, normanhurst at catsfield, mill farm at hankham. you'll have to check their websites/facebook pages to find out which sunday each are open though.
  8. purchased my benelli pump action from them, a good few years ago admittedly, and my experience of dealing with them was very good.
  9. local gun club are holding a charity shoot to support The British Heart Foundation. Stumbletts Gun Club. Furnace Lane, Horam, East Sussex. Sunday 3rd September. 9.30am-1.00pm its a 50 bird sporting shoot, £16 entry. £50 high gun prize. 10 bird pool shoot, £5 entry. £30 high gun prize. 10 bird have-a-go £5. use of a gun and cartridges included. I must mention flyer says 'valid shotgun licence required for entry' but I guess this only applies to the main comp and pool shoot. be nice to see some local shooters support this.
  10. one of my shooting mates had this with a new supersport, went back to GMK a couple of times but they never managed to get it sorted out. In the end dealer swapped it out for a new one themselves.
  11. Aviva do my L200, very competitive price including business use & goods in transit. personally wouldn't touch Adrian Flux, or NFU for that matter.
  12. my thoughts exactly. perfectly legal for him to do. he's having fun with his grandson, participating in a perfectly legal activity, as long as no pellets leave his boundary of course. he has as much right to do that in his garden as you do to enjoy time in your garden with your daughter playing in her sandpit.
  13. I believe the technical difference is that the steyr doesn't load the pellet into the chamber, it aligns it with the barrel. the pellets are fired directly from the magazine on the steyr, unlike most airguns where the probe pushes the pellet into the barrel before firing. there have been some interesting posts on airgun bbs, some alluding to the fact that apparently 'the independent forensic lab's (LBC Ltd) opinion was that they were not self loading as per Sect 57 2a of the act and therefore not Sect 5 ab. Nabis stated they agreed. They also didn't deem them to be Sect 1 due to their po
  14. no idea, they seem absolutely fine. never sat down and worked out the velocity. when I first picked the gun up I only had AA pellets which I was using in another rifle, so thought I'd give them a try, and they worked no problem. I have since bought a couple of tins of bisley magnums and don't really notice any difference, although I don't really stretch its legs too far when out rabbit shooting, if I want to shoot rabbits at distance I take the hmr. I don't really buy into all this blowing skirts at 40+ ft/lb and all the other stuff that gets written by people who don't have fac air, of
  15. they do 2 versions, the hunting 5 is a single shot biathalon cocking, officially imported by steyr uk the hunting 5 auto is semi automatic, no official imports of this one. both use the same 5 shot or single shot magazine.
  16. fac Airwolf should be a tack driver, mines not pellet fussy, it'll happily spit out air arms diablo or bisley magnums all day long. they are on the heavy side though, mine comes in at 4.7kg with a normal 4-12 or something x50 scope, the fac version should have the larger bottle. great shot count from the large bottle though compared to most fac air, even running 40ft/lb in .22. mines normal walnut stock, don't expect the tactical is much lighter though. fx are supposedly good with the smooth twist barrel in fac power, might be worth a look for something different.
  17. well BASC seem to think they are legal, as long as under 12ft/lb, according to their guidance published on their website. I'd be surprised if you could name 1 dealer who has had one confiscated, as there are no official imports of them anyway. according to Steyr UK they have provided a working LP50 pistol (which uses the same mechanism, and therefore is as legal as a hunting 5 auto) to North Yorkshire Police for analysis to determine if the mechanism is self-loading as defined in law. NSRA at Bisley are also still allowing competitors to use the LP50 pistol, there is a news article on their
  18. bought my 2009 model with 138k on it about 2 years ago. full Mitzi history with it. Haven't had any problems with it at all. Still happy with it.
  19. gonna be nosey, which club are you shooting for ? I shoot at Stumbletts, which can seem a bit 'compact' if you're used to shooting the more open grounds. first one at Willow Farm is a bit of a journey for us, but well worth it. you need to do all rounds to get anywhere near the top of the individual leader board. we've struggled as a club in the last couple of years to get a full team to shoot on Saturdays. most of our club only really want to shoot on a Sunday.
  20. yes, have from the start. really enjoyable, nice friendly shoots, and nice to get round other local clubs.
  21. sounds like starter motor on the way out and interfering with the crank position sensor whilst cranking the engine. had this on my TD5, but was eratic at doing it to start with and got worse, sometimes would go first flick sometime cranked for ages. when mine did it it would bump start straight away as you aren't using starter motor, will give you a clue.
  22. you could try Diamond Shooting Services in East Sussex. http://www.diamondshootingservices.co.uk/home or John Jeffries (hpx perazzi) also in East Sussex. http://www.perazzihpxshotguns.com/chokes-stocks-triggers-and-services/ the guy from Diamond finishes the hpx's. I've not had a gun fitted by either of these guys, just know they are local in East Sussex.
  23. did mine last week with sussex and was £65, I assume all authorities are the same amount. I would check your licensing authority's website, you can normally find the fee's there.
  24. hi. he sold them to 'Dibs' on here. he did have them up for sale again, don't know if he still has them or if they went. might be worth dropping him a pm.
