    Winchester Grand European

    Thanks for the comments chaps, I think as Hamster pointed out its money down the drain for starters and the general opinion seems to be it may affect resale value. I'll leave it alone!

    Winchester Grand European

    I bought this gun from a friend earlier on in the year and have been having thoughts about getting it teagued, its a trap gun choked 3/4 and full. I always seem to shoot well with a trap gun for sporting/game as well as trap. A few years earlier I had a Browning XT which I had teagued but there are plenty of them around. I'm wondering if I will devalue it by having this done? It's done next to nothing and still tight with the top lever well right of centre. I don't want to get the chokes eased out as I like the choking for trap so would have to be multichoked but it's just too tight for game especially. I'm not a Winchester collector so just wondered from that point of view is it going to hurt its value or should leave well alone and move it on and buy another XT?

    Aya gun

    It's not stamped on the gun, if it's a boxlock ejector it's most likely a No.4. Need a pic to see!

    Loose action pin on Miroku MK70

    That pin is the cocking lever pin - on my Browning it had a set screw to hold it tight. You could only see it after removing the stock. On the left side if I remember correctly. (Not sure if the MK70 is the same setup but assume so.)
  5. Do you make a 10 round for the P94? I have a Sako one but it's less than reliable.

    Rifle chronograph

    From my experience this certainly didn't apply to my F1. I bought the F1 probably 11-12 years ago and replaced it with a Magnetospeed about 4 years ago and on testing them both at the same time - i.e. Magnetospeed attached to barrel and F1 about 14 feet downrange between all readings there was literally next to nothing in it, just 1-10 fps in it or so with some readings being identical. The F1 tended to read a touch slower which could be accounted for it being 14 feet away rather than muzzle mounted.
  7. As above looking to get hold of a used one. As they've been around for a while now just wondered how people like them and how they've held up? I have other guns but nothing with a high adjustable rib and have always fancied trying one. There seems to be a few used ones around for sensible money so figured if I didn't like it I wouldn't lose out too badly If I sold it on.

    I bought a new Tikka threaded 18x1 which would accept one mod but another brand would only go on about half way. Jackson Rifles very kindly at no charge sent me one of their own dies to borrow as I couldn't source one locally to chase the threads. It only needed a minute bit of material removed and fitted perfectly after.

    AYA Best Quality boxlock in the unsold lots at Holts last sale if anyone is looking. Bit different to the one in the link above, possibly older?? https://auctions.holtsauctioneers.com/asp/fullCatalogue.asp?salelot=XA0618++1710+&refno=++126470&saletype=

    Benelli choke

    Benellis have or certainly tended to have tighter bores than a lot of other modern sporting guns. Your choke gauge is probably based on a .729 bore. Whereas your Benelli may have a bore size of .724.

    Winchester Grand European

    I'm going to keep it. I gave it a good clean tonight, had the ejectors out and such like and it seems to be beautifully built. Just about all the parts are numbered with the serial number, even the ejectors. And bits inside you only see when it's apart are engine turned. Real attention to detail. No case unfortunately! Thanks for the info though. It feels like a classic!

    Winchester Grand European

    Thanks for that, look forward to any info. I wasn't intending on doing any modifications, I just fancy another trap gun after selling my XT a few years back.

    Winchester Grand European

    Any opinions on the above? Since selling my Browning XT I've been mourning it's loss and want another trap gun. I have this on trial just now and just wondered what people in the know thought of them. It doesn't appear to have done very much, I read Winchesters tend to loosen up quickly but this is still tight with the top lever still sitting well right of centre and certainly doesn't fall open. It's nicely engraved too. It's a fixed choke 3/4 and full and patterns beautifully! Where did the Grand European sit in the range? Not keen on the varnished stock but that could be stripped and oiled. Finally what would be a sensible price to offer for it?
