  1. Guns with NVSN just get entered on your ticket as NVSN - sometimes they might ask for particular or identifying features but its not an issue there are thousands out there with no S/N. Is the pin missing or is it just short or broken off? not a big issue but will need addressing, from pin goes through the cocking dogs, middle pin goes through the hammers/strikers, rear pin goes trough the sears. As for Re laying ribs, its pretty uncommon that you can get away with bodging them back together, there is usually old rust, soldier and flux floating around in the rib cavity. If you are careful you can lift the top rib leaving the others in place, clean the cavity, tin the mating surfaces make sure to neutralize if your tinning compound is acidic wire everything back up and relay, you need some parallel surfaces to set the barrels on while doing this, non galvanised annealed iron wire to wire the tubes and ribs together with, rosin flux is best, tin lead soldier, you want to gently clamp the muzzles and watch the flux, you want it melted and hot enough for the soldier to run but without burning the flux ideally. Do not get the barrels too hot, horse shoe nails are ideal for going under the wires and clamping down on the ribs to hold everything in place, go steady and ensure everything is straight as a die. Clean and clean and clean again once everything has cooled, then re blue. Its quite an involved process, genuinely takes me the best part of a day to clean strip and re lay everything and Ive done it a few times now. Attached video of your typical rib cavity - and no i'm not using my best chisel.
  2. Trade client told me once that "disposing" of old guns used to be a simple process of cutting them into as many chunks of useless metal as possible and then ploughing them in or burying them next time some earthworks were being done. - Lets assume this was a long time ago. Now days this isn't the case of course. Just saying its just as likely it was found in someones possessions and disposed of, or was actually "legally" disposed at some point, The police hold a national database for guns used in crime of the individual imprint that firing pins make on cartridges, in my mind it would be more interesting to have that possibility ruled out than to have a hunk of iron on the mantle piece; that being said whats the value of the piece to the police, if they connect that "weapon" to a crime how much further would they get? I suppose that's for a detective to work out, but knowing that "unsolved shooting" happened with a gun doesn't exactly require Sherlock Holmes intellect.

  4. Thanks for the praise! Don't be silly - its about maintaining a standard and learning as you go. Anyone who thought they knew everything from day dot was wrong, and anyone who thinks they know it all by the end of their time has settled for "good enough" or simply doesnt care enough to continue the journey. Your work is nothing to be ashamed of - just look at the hundreds of guns you see with rounded off but ends and a valley between the pad and end, checkering sanded over or even worse run over with some kind of dremmel attachment and little consideration. Here are some recent works for the enjoyment of people who like to see this sort of thing!
  5. powdered chalk and water into a paste, slather it on thick and ontop of the aga or in the oven at 30 or in the airing cupboard or something. It what i use on any seriously oil soaked heads of stocks. Takes days, scrub it off with a soft brass brush, and repeat, id be amazed if you needed to do it twice.
  6. Thanks for the interesting replies gents 👍 I could post on the 4x4 forums but this forum is home!! Its performance is back where it should be; the cars no whipper snapper it's done 168k... but it only averages out at about 3k a year. Legend has it it has done a few expeditions in its time but I've forgotten the folklaw passed down to my by its previous owner... I think it went somewhere snowy. Going to flush and clean the oil, fit new injector nozzles and new viscous fan/water pump also got a new cam belt and tensioner but that seems like a scary undertaking for some reason? and picked up a plug in thingy today, ran it today, firing up absolutely flawlessly, like as soon as the key makes contact it's running, battery light didn't come on or anything; it certainly didn't enjoy the cold weather, difficulty Is when I stop for lunch I usually **** around for Half an hour on the car just putting a new door striker on or something, so I don't know if it's just me leaving the interior lights on and such, going to bypass the heater matrix and give that a clean/replace if bunged up, would be nice to have a bit of heat. I made a dog guard thought being I could attach a series fume curtain to try and keep the heater just heating the cab and not the rear tub space also.. I'm back to the half inch gap at the top of the door really bugging me. In that respect life is good
  7. Looking likely to be down to the last bitch looking for a home; will confirm this weekend
  8. Just a BUMP Had a few people asking for a location - Im near Northallerton North Yorkshire. One bitch found its new home, someone keen on another coming to view a bitch this weekend, leaving two bitches and the dog! If you have any interest then please get in touch.
  9. Just thought i would put this on here, problem solved so to speak but don't fully understand why it presented the symptoms it presented Landy been running absolutely fine, i do give it some hammer but it just keeps on going.. i thought i had got to the point with it where my biggest concern was the half inch gap at the top of the passenger door - for a self admitted 26 year old disaster case ( car not me ) is pretty good going. Last Monday did 200 miles in it - as you can imagine untold driving pleasure. Last Tuesday did 40 miles in it. last Wednesday did a mile to the pub for dinner and back. last Thursday evening cold - struggled to start but then started - Suspected battery or alternator failing ( can cope with that its on the list of parts that haven't been replaced ) . Got a mile down the road in second due to steep hill ( 1 in 5 ) and serious ice out. Decide to get up to speed and the engine revs and then dies away, just about make second gear but not enough power to sustain it. Look behind me; oh balls, I've asphyxiated the village by turning it into some parody of a Victorian mill town with my exhaust smoke. Mum and sister at the family home - neither competent, so wasn't going to ask for a tow back up the hill, the bloody thing would make it home. Which it did, at a stately and hesitant 3mph, billowing its clouds like some teenager with a vape stick as it went. Spent three days looking at it occasionally hoping it would cure its self ( landys sometimes do ) while my dad bleated that the head gasket was gone and when i asked what he thought was wrong with it his only answer was "everything" which wasn't really helping me much. Prices and advice sought, bit of head scratching under the bonnet, a test drive where it appeared to cure its self. Week goes by and id decided it was the lift pump, there seemed to be a post a week on lift pumps failing on the internet and given that mine was recently replaced it was probably due to fail. First things first just check the fuel filter.. AH, we have the culprit. £5.17p and problem solved. What i don't understand is why being starved of fuel results in loads of whitish smoke smelling of un burnt diesel? Anyway, just another adventure in the rust bucket! Edit to add - Jesus 26 years has not been kind to that rear axle - Summer project to swap that out.
  10. Had various muzzle loaders over the years! Joy to use once you get the right load!
  11. Thanks for the recommendation figgy - Busy work shop at the moment gallery of pictures can be found at the link below. https://www.instagram.com/woodworking_gunsmith/?hl=en I'm based near Northallerton, very close to Thimbleby if you are stopping by the workshop you can make a day of it and shoot some clays there too! Should have a website sorted soon just collecting testimonials - struggle to find time to get out of the workshop and on the computer! James.
  12. Simple answer is just to have a collectors license where in the collector has to keep a record of sales and transfers between collectors much like an RFD but without the security aspect. Anyone without said license or who owns a gun that falls into license category without such a license can quickly and easily be prosecuted. I'm loathe to see any further restrictions but if its coming anyway we are probably better suggesting a method that is workable rather than being handed a restrictive set of laws which may damage collections of our heritage.
  13. Edited now - forgot to add in when i posted the add - refresh your page it should be up there now cheers!!
  14. English Springer Spaniel Puppies For Sale. Litter of 5 puppies, 3 Bitches, 2 dogs born on the 20th Jan. Both parents are working dogs.
