  1. You can use a plastic milk bottle cut up into a strip as a temp fix.
  2. I have been running a gys 160a mig for a few years now and it’s had a fair amount of wire through it and I cannot fault it so far, not the cheapest but not silly money and at least they apparently own the Chinese factory and not just outsourcing the work to the lowest bidder for the low to mid range units.
  3. Looking at the quality of the brickwork it will fall down of its own accord soon.
  4. I have a kral n-01 in .22 which I don’t need any more, shortish barrel and decent open sights. Would be a good ratter looking for £60 if your interested.
  5. I have this cartridge bag which has torn and was glued back together but split again and it been sat around for ages waiting for me to fix it! if anyone wants it then let me know by the end of the week or it’s going in the bin. No strap just the bag. I can post it for £3 if anyone is interested.
  6. Finished length matters on old marlins as they do not have what I would call a bullet stop so when the lifter is in action it relays on the round being the right length and not letting the next round onto the lifter and jamming it, some winchesters had this addition but I cannot remember when they put it in. a look in the action may yield the answer if there is a mechanism to stop the next round getting onto the lifter and if so the finished length is less important but it still may not cycle every time as there would not be a nice shaped bullet in the end of the case to guide it into the chamber. sounds like a fun project anyway and would be interested in finding out if you get it working. Out of interest is it held on s2 or s58 and going to put it on s2 if you get it working?
  7. https://forum.cartridgecollectors.org/t/9x19-airmunition/23845 quite a bit of info on another forum about them.
  8. Hi there are no markings on either the carts or the boxes as to what weight the 16 bore carts are sorry.
  9. Had a clear out today and have these for sale, first is a full slab of 250 hull three crowns in 16 bore still in its original outer case and only opened to check the contents. £60 second is a real mixed box of all sorts, 28, 16 and 20 paper and plastic some really old and some quite new. £50 collection from pudsey just outside Leeds or I will be in Norwich next weekend so could meet up there. sgc holders only. if you want them please state on here followed by a pm to arrange collection.
  10. Can you back this up with evidence? Don’t want anyone getting into hot water, as far as I know it is still illegal to sell or pass on anything other than a current eu deact.
  11. Most people seem to have success with rws superdomes in the older larger bore guns.
  12. Duck hunt is the best and the only game I have played, after that I lost interest in games!
  13. There are a couple of rifle conversions at the wilson55 auction but there already sky high on price
  14. My guess would be that it’s eaten some sheep raddle and that’s the result.
  15. I have never seen greta clungebergs mum but is that her?
  16. Definitely buy one of the ones recommended above, 80 psi will overheat and kill any of the cheap ones, I got a all metal one for under £30 when maplin closed down and it will just about do a 15” 4x4 tyre without getting too hot so anything more and spending the extra will ensure you don’t buy twice. oh and cigar lighter ones will probably blow the fuse so go straight for one that clips onto the battery.
  17. Thanks guys, ordered a pot of it online. Never even herd of the stuff until now, this place is really a wealth of knowledge!
  18. Hi I now have a old antique single barrel percussion gun that I will be mounting on the wall, it’s well pitted and has some rust and I need to stop the rust and give it a long lasting protective finish. What would be best on the metal work, give it a wire wool rub and normal gun oil or is there a better way to protect it.
  19. One of the other half’s friends is a gp and she was bragging about all the lgbt courses and awareness courses she had been on, sounded like she had not seen any patients for months! im actually scared of getting ill enough to need to see someone.
  20. I would of thought some smarty pants would have made a pressure monitor like what they fit in car tyres but higher pressure and have a little monitor that fits onto the outside of the rifle for a accurate pressure reading.
  21. It could be the bottom of the trigger that’s cutting you, baikals are known for this, a few licks with a file on the bottom edge normally sorts it out.
  22. Sorry valves seem hard to find these days, looking at the bottle valve if you have not had it apart then it looks like it could have been apart before or an attempt has been made to get it apart so best bet might be if you can get the valve out before buying a new valve and then finding it’s stuck! If it won’t come apart it might be easier to get a new bottle and valve given if it’s a early model the bottle will be quite old anyway.
  23. There is not much to them, if the seals are good on the gun then the bottle valve might be causing it to go funny but I would just expect it to leak. They come apart easy and I think there is only a couple of seals on the gun itself. if you don’t get anywhere with it I think I still have a .22 barrel here if you wanted to try it with that and see if it flattens out the power.
  24. Just imagine the conversation to the insurance company, sir do you have any modifications, well there is a small gun turret on the roof…..
