Looked up Prudhoe only 3 1/2 hr drive each way as well , are you around or away for the new year ? also have the necessary slot as well, forgot to mention did you buy the rifle as new ? hope to hear from you soon...Paul

      Hi Paul,

      no the Grs stock was an extra, bedded by Dave at Bowtech. It's not getting used mate, hasn't been shot in over a year and it's just a waste. I'll be about in the new year yeah. Yes bought it new, but it's become a bit of a safe queen!

    honda crv

    Bought one off a friend, he was trading it in, only offered a £1000, so sold it to me for the same price ! 04, 96,000 miles full service history, drives really nice, fitted AT2 on it and be surprised where its gone, if had a couple of more inches ground clearance be fantastic, also if the tailgate opens to the side, great standing in the back , shooting off the roof.

    If you cut about 5 inch off the shank, probably wont fit the handle, will need to replace the buffalo spacer then, also the stick my be to short. If was close would fit a new shank and ferrule for you, check any local stick club members out , might be able to help, gonna doit, do it properly.....

    17 HMR Bullets

    The HMR has had a fair bit of stick recently, ran mine for the last 10yrs with no issues, then a few baduns in a brick i bought! Cleared them out , ok since, still love it, cracking round for rabbits, get comfortable with it, dont go stupid, then learn to read the wind and distances, keep it real and you will be surprised ! A handy learning tool is Strelok .
