    Auto A5

    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...
  2. 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...
  3. Great scope for someone! Got one on my .223 Rem and I was enjoying it yesterday. Scrummy
  4. 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 with the receiver. According to an RFD I spoke to, the London Proof house requires the magazine tube be crimped and permanently attached to the receiver, meaning you can't take it down. The Birmingham proof House just requires the magazine to be crimped and you can still take it down as intended. So, there's even some "wiggle" in official circles it seems. ATB, Scrummy
  5. Well said sir! I worries me that people might well believe they are in the clear and come a cropper....
  6. 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 removable plugs and therefore were actually S1. No, and please be careful with this. As I understand it, the act relies on what you are in possession of and it can be argued that a temporary plug is not a permanent restriction to limit the capacity to 2 +1. Therefore, you are in possession of an S1 firearm without the correct certification and could be in quite serious legal trouble. (I wish is was the honesty approach but legally I think that's very unsafe to assume that will float) Scrummy

  8. Carp eh? A mate of mine complains it's usually tench in his. Scrummy
  9. Living in London I've had a pretty good experience of Uber all tolled. Quite a few uber drivers are also licensed mini cab drivers who use uber as a top up. The main conspiracy theory is that the LDTA has given a bung to Sadiq Khan's relection fund but I can't verify that. Scrummy
  10. Could we persuade the Embassy to import it? I think I may have found an upside to Brexit! Scrummy
  11. Hello folks, what's news? Anyone been getting the pumps out? Also, shall we try another piece of pump shotgunning? Scrummy
  12. Yeah, gun stuff in hand luggage has been a no-no for long time buddy. Still, if you can get your brother to mule...
