    14 million in poverty

    Hi. Are these figures from people of working age? Lots of pensioners me included with everything paid for. House, car etc, no need to buy anything new. Good stock of clothes goodies e.t.c. can easily exist on the assumed poverty level. Are we counted to boost the figures?
  3. A wash with weak solution of Ammonia will last a year.

    BELMONT INTERCHANGEABLE 12

    I really think I must. It's been untouched in a cabinet for the last fifty years. Wont do any harm in mine. Bonus is it stops me collecting any more guns. There just aint any room!

    NOT SO SWEET SIXTEEN.

    Got it in one! Cant see any other reason.
  8. Must stop this. I seem to be the retirement home for old sick Hammer guns. Second one this week. This one a freeby. Belmont interchangeable built around 1880. Black powder proofed only and really in a bit of a mess. Not sure whether to refurbish. "cost" or bin it . It was their top of the range and a fine gun but has been "used" Bores are OK , barrels are steel but need a reblack. Also one hammer spring is broken and gun is slightly off it's face. Stock although very worn is a lovely dark tiger stripe Walnut. What do you lot think?

    Rescued a Belgian 16 "by buying it" Very cheap though. Bit of a rough gun. "my mate says it was made by a blacksmith." It probably was! Action is very crude and simple but locks seem to be much better quality. All polished. Stock looked as if used to hammer fence posts in but recovered a lot after a good ironing. Barrels are very good, bores are excellent and bluing is nice. Proofed for nitro and tight on the face. Shoots well. Top lever is cranked over at a strange angle. (Any suggestions why this is so?) I am sure I know. Any guesses. AND THE BARRELS ARE THE CORRECT WAY ROUND.😁

    Shotgun cleaning

    OK use bore cleaner "any" from the shop, will do the job. But for value Ed's Red. "Google it". Is by far the cheapest and it works. If you shoot plastic wads then add the Acetone, if you only shoot fibre you can leave it out. If you should use Acetone keep it well away from your stock. Cant see any problem with gunsocks and they do stop Hanger Rash!

    Passing Out

    I think in all of life there can be no greater overpowering feeling than to see your children achieve. From awards at school to something much greater like this. Congratulations.

    .410 chamber size.

    I agree it opens up to 65mm when fired. nowhere near 70mm.

    Anyone ever seen this happen on a gun?

    I have read somewhere that the woodwork stands well proud of the action on this gun. Poorly finished wood and water in the end grain I bet. When it's all well dry get someone to seal that end grain.
