  1. I have got some nice guns myself and I love walnut. I don't comment on much I see plus Ive had some nice daystates myself. But that gun is ****ing AWESOME!! really really nice mate.
  2. Is this sold then? If not mate why are you selling?
  3. Had 40 odd on a fresh drilled wheat field today, best bag this year. I had a 2 week old gun with me though and had I av took old faithfull beretta I think it would have been more like 50 birds. Its a browning maxus cammo Ive bought new and Im struggling with the balance as Im used to 30" ou. I ordered it in 26" and It took a good 250 shells in the first few weeks to sus out I need to choke up tight as I was hitting birds landing in the pattern at 30yrds and they were flying off. Since I put 3/4 in though Im dropping everything at decent range paced one out today from the hide 90 odd yrds with a 32grm six granted it fell some distance probably 30yrds as it was high but it was a big cock crow dead as a doornail for once, Ive been having to give them a second cartridge its costing me a bomb!
  4. No mate grade 3. But I had one my first ever gun a 28" game version and I wish I had not gotten rid, I got robbed on a part ex deal and took £900 for it but the wood on it was more like grade 5 but they are officially garde 3.
  5. Ex army netting cant be beaten for hides. I dont care for all this modern stuff, how many bushes do you see growing in the countryside with straight edges?
  6. Ha ha never mind I got one cheaper anyway,
  7. I bought a new maxus last week mate but thanks anyway.
  8. Either maxus or a400-300 wanted 26 inch ideal or 28 at a push. Must be in exelent condition cased and cammo is what I would really like, but others considered. I have money waiting in south yorkshire area but I would travel for the right gun, Im only weeks from the money burning a hole in my pocket and buying a new maxus from a shop.
  9. Ive been using hazel sticks as hide poles since I started shooting 25yrs ago but I think Im going to buy some extendable since the frozen groud of late has been bending my sticks, but the last i cut have lasted me years and accounted for many many hides as said totally free.
  10. Hi could you tell me the age of the gun and roughly how many catridges fired, Im very interested where are you based?
  11. I learned to shoot with a 28" browning 424 choked 1/2 and 3/4 I was averaging late 30s in a matter of weeks the odd 40ex 50. Then I bought a 686 30" multi and choked it 1/2 and 3/4 I could guarantee I was in the 40s in most sporting layouts locally the odd 45-46. Ive then bought a ceasar guerini maxum and choked it the same as the Berreta and my scores dropped dramatically. After a few experiments ive shot a 43 the other week on a testing layout using 1/4 and 1/2 and this was on one leg following my left leg amputation so my technique has been changed slightly lol. I was just relieved I could still shoot decent scores but as for chokes I think some guns are fussy all depends on the fit of the gun the Beretta seemed to shoot the same regardless of if it had 1/4 1/2 or 3/4 chokes so long as the second was slightly tighter I was confident. The guerini wouldnt shoot as well in my hands with 3/4 chokes Ive had to drop to 1/4 in the first and 1/2 I will do well out to 45 yrds but need the tighter choke beyond but my close stuff will suffer. Im still experimenting but I will advise to start out with 1/4 and 1/2 and see how you go on, my mate has a kreighoff chokes cyl and cyl and he smokes the far tower at Gainsborough with it no probs I on the other hand with 1/2 and 3/4 could hit them but in the compact fitasc I shot a 24/25 beating him and and bet him on the skeet. Weird I cant work it out lol.
  12. Im afraid I dont believe this like I said Ive had mine 2 years two game seasons and plenty of clays it is still very tight and looks like it has just rolled of the production line, the americans have put 10s of thousands through similar models without problems. May I ask what exactly you mean by knackered?
  13. Ive had a maxum 30 inch sporter for 2 years now done game and clays and been totaly faultless, ive had grade 5 brownings and 686's and think this thing feels better made. As for the rest I dont care what gun you buy it can break but thankfully there are plenty of ceasar guerini dealers nowdays and parts are easily replaced ive heard the easar guerini uk agents are very good to deal with. I used to work for holland and holland and heard of a customer who bought a pair of royals and went the africa to shoot doves and the heat seized both guns good job he took his relatively cheap pair of backup brownings. Just goes to show you get good and bad no matter what you pay I know of someone who had alot of probs with a barreta s06 and another who has probs with his kreigoff I can outshoot both with my ceasar guerini, have any of the critics owned one by any chance? I dont see what is better for the price even the current price.
  14. Hi mate would you take £200 without the scope?

  15. nice one mate im not that far from leeds can you give me a shout if any jobs going when you get settled,im wanting a job change as I lost my lower left leg in march my father used to be a keeper on big estates so im familiar with all rural pest controll plus im a qualified engineer,i know what you mean about trips to meadowhall lol
  16. thanks for the info i removed the stock and relieved the area myself with with a small riffler mine had not cracked either so all is well touch wood.
  17. hello mate i had to make myself a member just to reply to this thread, i to have a maxum and after 200shots mine is doing the same bumping up but no splits like yours but im now worried that mine will split also!!! Therefore can you please tell me who is doing this relieving of the stock on your gun is it through guerini warranty or are you paying a private gunsmith?
