  1. I just used a phosphor bronze brush on a section of cleaning rod stuck in my electric drill for a long time. Then I bought one of the Magic Bore rods and use that now. Its more effective and cleaner to store. Personally I really rate them.
  2. Interesting and it does make sense. I think adding any extra weight to the barrel or even the rest of the gun can interfere with the cycling of an inertia driven gun - although I did hear of a chap successfully adding a titanium moderator to a Benelli M2.
  3. Thats interesting, I would have thought they would have been much lower. Spartans are on another level!
  4. Lovely. What sort of power can those little TACs achieve?
  5. One question I have on these is whether a semi auto (a gas one at least) will still work with one. Logically it shouldn't make a difference if the barrel is not ported.
  6. Was that the one that was more like a stalking rifle? What's it like? Would be great to see some pictures
  7. A chap in my shoot swears by the Model 23 and has three of them. The beaver tail forend put me off initially but I have since warmed to the idea. They do seem excellent guns.
  8. Can I ask who is doing the metal work? I have a Webley Service that needs a refinish.
  9. Well that looks like an excellent job! You did the checquering yourself?
  10. Agreed - I remember the reviews in the magazines, I'm sure one made the obvious reference to Day of the Jackal with a picture of Edward Fox. I wonder if anyone kept one of these on FAC? Must be rare as a rare thing now.
  11. They are fairly simple in operation but interesting designs. I have an M100 in .20 too which is very nice. I'm always on the look out for a CO2 powered Starfire, but they always come up at unrealistic money for me. I like them for the same reasons I like the Skan air rifles, they are quirky and push the design envelope. From a time when the UK was coming out with new ideas in air guns.
  12. They are interesting rifles. It took me a while to fine one. Mine is a single shot trailsman. He also made an 8 shot repeater which had a fixed magazine and one with a buddy bottle. Here is the advert https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.flickr.com%2Fphotos%2F18w%2F6287926305&psig=AOvVaw2WE3Ts6v4ITqNAQKT-RpYa&ust=1599664854933000&source=images&cd=vfe&ved=0CAIQjRxqFwoTCNjfxI3u2esCFQAAAAAdAAAAABAE
  13. Was it an Alros Trailsman? They don't come much skinnier.
  14. Wow you dont see many of those about! 👍
  15. Yes please. A box for me! The last one did not last long!
