  1. You can fit an alarm yourself very cheaply which takes a cheap pay as you go sim card and calls you if triggered. You could set this up on your gunroom door. I had one of these before going for a fully monitored alarm system and the FEO was very happy at the time.
  2. Unless you could have it in 9mm rimfire its a smooth bore "revolver gun" and therefore section 5. I think they were added to Section 5 to stop the perceived threat of the South African "Street sweeper" / Pancor Jackhammer (both evolutionary dead ends). I had a look at a wonderful Belgian black powder 12 bore revolver shotgun years ago. It was built on an upscaled Tranter action.
  3. Thank you Gas Seal, I've only just seen this post ! I went and had a look at it. That one was imported and sold by Watson Brothers. I never knew they had imported them too. It was not as good as the Charles Lancaster ones. The forened was not wood and they had retained the resin used by Spencer. The stock was a later replacement. I have one too. Val Browning designed it to compete directly with the handling characteristics of a double gun. Not a gun I put a lot of clays though but excellent to carry a lot and shoot a little.
  4. I would certainly choose the Benelli over the Mossberg. If you want to hold wooden furniture rather than plastic then that might push you to the Mossberg though.
  5. I had one for a number of years. It was just a curiosity for me as I found the recoil too much to be of practical use (throwing 8 bore loads from a 10 bore) and my 12 bore auto did what I needed to do fowling. If you get the load and recoil right for you then they are certainly the cheapest way to get into an 8 bore though.
  6. I'll know soon if there is a place for next season on my shoot - I will get in touch if there is.
  7. I don't think so - not at the moment anyway
  8. It had (I think) 26" and 31" barrels. One set had some rust at the muzzle. A really excellent stock. Felt great and had me researching the make as I was unfamiliar.
  9. A friend of mine sent him the stock and forend of his Browning for the full treatment - the results really are excellent.
  10. The lovely Gamba Daytona with two sets of barrels very narrowly escaped. I managed a Remington 1100 Skeet gun though which has some amazing wood - if covered in that heavy varnish found on cheaper guns.
  11. I'm a recent convert after a buddy sent me some. Works a treat.
  12. I'll take one please if possible
  13. Its a fantastic shop with only superb guns. I still regret not buying a really high quality 16 bore hammer gun he had that had no name. He thought it had been made by the workers of a quality maker "after hours"!
  14. I have both a 26" 700 with a Churchill rib and a 30". I love them both. There's never been a better time to buy one as demand for boxlocks has really dropped off. Have a look at the September 2021 Gavin Gardiner auction results. Some amazing bargains there on Webley 700s with near full colour hardening, almost upsetting seeing how little they make now. If you're buying from a dealer then don't be afraid to drive a hard bargain!
