  1. I thought they where a boxlock with side plates ?
  2. Decathlon do a decent case with harness.
  3. Very nice ground and well worth a visit for the high towers alone. A little bit on the expensive side per clay but considering the quality of the ground and walkways I Would say it offers good value for money.
  4. I've had about a dozen new competition guns over the years,mainly Brownings but tried most of the popular brands.Ive learnt that in terms of performance there is very little to choose between them,if I had put a quarter of the money spent on guns into tuition I would be a better shot now with more money in the bank.Having said all that pleasure of ownership has always played a big part of me changing guns,I have enjoyed high grade Browning and Mirokus and full on competition Brownings,I have ended up with a gun that offers a little bit of each and is in that c£2k price range.I have now got a Beretta 686 Evo 30" Sporter,great wood,great barrels and multichokes and a nice 'competition ' styled action.I shoot it as well as anything I've had in the past and for me it offers the right combination of performance,reliability and style.
  5. 2 X Teague Beretta Optima Extended Knurled Chokes, 3/8. And. 5/8 I had one round of 50 sporting after buying these chokes then got tempted by another gun,now surplus to requirements. I paid £48 each plus postage in March,looking for £60 for the pair,posted first class. payment PayPal f&f
  6. I would say no,the 35 stock has a cut out for the barrel latch.
  7. Looks good to me,certainly the right spec for air rifle shooting,I have a front lens hood that extends beyond the objective lens and is very useful if you are shooting in bright sunlight especially into the sun,might be worth checking if you can get one as an accessory for this scope.Also make sure you get the right height scope mounts to make sure the sight picture is spot on when you mount the rifle and also has enough clearance for the magazine..
  8. The picture is my actual rifle,I paid an extra £50 for select walnut,since I've had it I've given it a few quick coats of Slippery Dic#s stock wax and it just keeps getting better.Ive also swopped out the standard shroud for a Huggett as I wanted to fit a Huggett Snipe moderator and really liked the look of the shroud/mod combination,I can't say hand on heart it's quieter than any quality moderator but it does look nice. With reference to your scope,it is a very nice scope but will definately limit you on an air rifle,it is set to give you sharp focus at 100yds as most full bore riflescopes are.What you need is An airgun specific scope where you can adjust the focus distance either via the objective (front) lens or via a side focus wheel,these normally allow you to focus from 10yds to infinity.They will also give you a basic rangefinding guide as you focus on your exact target and then read off the distance on the lens barrel or sidewheel and you get a better idea of your range to target,crucial with air rifle loopy trajectories. when you go shopping look for the designation AO (adjustable objective) or SF (side focus) all the air rifle retailers will have plenty to choose from, I like Hawke scopes but have had Nikko and MTC recently,I think Hawke have more airgun specific models to choose from than most.Look at Optics Warehouse,their website is very informative and they have special offers most weeks,they have a very decent Nikko Sirling Target Master 4-16x44 side focus on offer at the moment at £99.95 !! what a bargain, this would be a perfect scope for your rifle and won't break the bank,hope this helps.
  9. What he said,for air rifle shooting you really need a scope that can focus in the real ranges you will be shooting at ie 10-50 yds scopes with adj objective lens can be had for anything from £100 and up new and less if you buy used. i have just bought a new Huntsman Regal HR in .177, fitted a Hawke Airmax 30 SF 4-16x50 it is an extremely accurate combination,it's only limiting factor being me 😏

    Tried them all in my .22, for overall target and hunting the Falcon Accuracy Plus 13.43 gr came out on top,like a laser,very flat shooting.

    I like the Combro mk4,it's simple to use,accurate and very good value.I use electrical tape to fix it rather than elastic bands and I bought the plastic bore aligner to be sure of getting it in the right place. I have used it in my garage shooting into a pellet trap and it was still accurate,as previously said it's an airgun chrono only so maybe limiting in that way.

    pre charged v spring

    Only ever had Spring rifles until this weekend.grew up using BSA Meteors and ASI paratroopers etc,Marksman pellets in the little red box. I bought a collection of springers recently to sell on,I ended up keeping a couple of pistols and used them for target shooting in the garden,I had forgotten how much I enjoyed it,so much it rekindled my interest. I picked up a Weihrauch HW 100 KS on Saturday from Range and Country Gunshop in Sleaford (terrific shop and people) I cannot believe the accuracy,power and total absence of recoil and noise,it is a different world to spring rifles. I still have a lovely BSA Lightning XL SE in the cabinet which I will always keep (nostalgia and simplicity) and I think their is always a use for them in most people's arsenal but the pcp is world's apart. I have put some padding in the back of my target pellet catcher and you would now be hard pushed to hear me shooting from the other side of a fence panel,no muzzle report and no sound when the pellet hits the target,in today's world where anything gun related can cause a stir ,keeping things silent is definately a plus point. I will always have both styles of rifle but apart from the 'self contained' convenience of a springer and value they offer I can't see me using my BSA much when the PCP is sat next to it in the cabinet.
  13. The new gunshop at Sleaford is well worth a visit,nice guy,good stock and very competitive,Country and Range,recommended.
