  1. I should think it would be very good for developing follow-through. Or highlighting where one lacked it
  2. That's what I found. Red dots aren't great in low light for 2 reasons: 1) The dot is made up of light (so adds impetus for your iris to close) 2) The screen is coated so that it reflects red wave lengths so you can see the dot means so that less light comes from your target to the screen. But for slugs they are great. I hope one of these days to sort out a running boar target to use them on. Scrummy
  3. Welcome to the club and hope you enjoy many happy years of pumping!
  4. I think clay grounds are becoming more accepting of the "single barrel brigade" in fact I know of of several chaps who go on some very posh driven shoots who also have a "plastic fantastic" for wild fowling. SpecificallyI know of a chap with a true pair of H&H sidelocks who has an SX3 in black plastic. And he takes it to Bisley Play and play for a few sessions every year!
  5. Hi folks, anyone stripped the woodwork on a Browning Auto 5? What worked or didn’t? Mine is an early 60s version I think. Thanks in advance, Scrummy
  6. Really fancy an Auto 5 and after shooting a couple of Wraivi's that desire only got reinforced. Just a shame so many of them come with such tight chokes...
  7. Oh there was a problem, not just limited to him. Ask @Kalahari about what happened with his Browning BPS. Had to send it back to Browning for correction and reproofing I understand...
  8. Great scope for someone! Got one on my .223 Rem and I was enjoying it yesterday. Scrummy
  9. Oh I think you are definitely right there are quite a few "anomalies" kicking around. It just worries me that if you have one of these "anomalies" it gives our fuzzy friends room to give you a hard time (I'm not saying all by any means, just if you get someone who has decided to be awkward). And we all like having our certificates and we don't like prison time. I found out about an interesting "Official" anomaly the other day. Winchester Model 12 pumps. They come apart differently to most pumps in that the magazine tube comes off with the barrel assembly rather than remaining wi
  10. Well said sir! I worries me that people might well believe they are in the clear and come a cropper....
  11. Lloydy, it basically has to be some form of permanent restriction so if you use a plug you have to seal the end of the magazine tube. For a lot of Semi auto and pump designs, this makes taking the barrel off a pain (Notably not the Maxus with the different forend latch). You have to be a bit careful of some guns imported around 2010 that just had a "duck plug" inserted into the magazine tube (This is essentially a rod that stops the follower going further back and limiting the number of cartridges) I know of 2 pumps that were on S2 certs after going through multiple RFDs that had rem

  13. Carp eh? A mate of mine complains it's usually tench in his. Scrummy
