  1. I’ve tried the Coopers on a Dmax and found they were not good in the wet on the road and have used Goodrich AT on Troupers in the past and again brilliant off-road but quite woolly on the road especially after 50% worn. I’ve opted for Conti Crosscontact LX2’s on recommendation of a neighbour. Thanks for the replies though lads.
  2. Need new tyres on my Navara NP300. I do 25k miles/yr so need good road capability but also need reasonable off-road performance. What do you guys recommend?
  3. Makers code will be 2/3 letters on barrel flats, year of manufacture wil be a letter followed by *1 or 2. Let me know both and I’ll tell what it is and how old.

    I use a 17 plate Navara Auto as a farm vehicle, it’s on Goodyear road tyres and I’ve never had it stuck quite!! I’ve had the issue with adblue which Lincoln Nissan said they had never come across before ( who are they trying to kid!! ) but by replacing the tank and inboard pump seems to have fixed it. It really is a great truck to drive, and if you have a good independent garage to service it would recommend,
  5. Has anyone got a canvas Brady 50 cartridge bag ?
  6. Me knows it isn’t sleeved, me would have said if it was. The mark you can see is a line stamped under the BSA 3 rifle emblem. GUN NOW SOLD
  7. Forgot to mention I shoot driven game, not super high stuff so 28g is as low as I would want to go
  8. Probably been asked before but what cartridges do you use in your sxs? I shoot (mainly) a Union Armera 215 and lately have used 30g Gamebore dark storm 6’s I get on ok with them and they are fast but rather punchy. A friend gave me a couple of boxes of Eley Impax 28g 7’s which I have used today. Wow what a beautiful little cartridge! I can see why they were so popular in the 60’s and 70’s when sxs ruled. Does anyone else use them?
  9. Thank you all for your suggestions, I think the gorilla pulling too hard on the trigger is most likely! (Not me) I think I’ll take to a gunsmith to carry out a relatively simple adjustment rather than risking breaking a sear!!
  10. Can feel resistance when pulling left trigger but hammer doesn’t release which makes me think the intercepting sear lever has got bent somehow so that the trigger blade does not engage. I’m nervous of trying to bend the lever cold?
  11. One for the gunsmiths on here. I recently bought a Union Armera sidelock 12 with a faulty left barrel trigger. I’ve removed both locks and both are cocking ok, safety catch works ok. Looking at the 2 locks there does appear to be a bigger gap between the intercepting sear and the sear levers (the bit where the trigger actuates the Sears) on the left hand lock. Could it be that the left trigger is actuating the sear but not the intercepting sear and therefore not releasing the hammer?
  12. It’s 14 1/2” lop and chambered 2 1/2. Ideal for rough shooting.
