  1. Got the Stornaways in 11 (I'm 10-10.5) and they're a great fit very comfortable. Had them for just under a year, light-moderate use. Pleased with them thus far

      Hi, that's very kind of you indeed though there's actually been a development and I'm unlikely to need these components after all. For context which may interest you - I acquired a Mauser M71 Sporter at auction online. This was said to be a 28 bore and sure enough it's proofed as such having been converted from a rifle at some point. On testing however it transpired that cartridges wouldn't fit (chamber much too tight). After leaving with a gunsmith to investigate, it was suggested that 28 bore brass would be the way to go. This was a miscommunication though, having done a chamber casting it's come out as the equivalent of a 32 bore! Altogether baffling but as of today I've been informed that work can be done so that it takes regular 2.5" 28 bore cartridges.

      A complicated scenario! I do like a niche gun but had no idea what I was getting into with this one. I appreciate your offer of assistance however. I'll let you know the outcome and if it's of interest can send some pictures of it your way once I have it back again. Getting these things working is have the fun as I'm sure you understand as a shooter of 24 bore!

      Glad you got fixed up  has I said I do shoot with a pair of sxs 24 bore hammer Gus and also muzzle loaders  I have a 32 bore  sxs hammer gun and a single barrelled 32 hammer gun  I did buy most of these bore cartridges from my old friend Alex Kerr from st Fillians Grieff  sadly he has since died so I had to turn to Firochio God luck and stay safe from Corvid

    24 Gauge Fibre Wads

    Yes they're a challenge to find! Muzzle loading wads would probably do the job but seem to be out of stock everywhere. I may be able to source wool ones but not cheaply
  5. As above, these seem to be out of stock in the few places that sell them and importing no doubt more difficult these days. Anyone got some for sale?
  6. Sturdy leather belt with double-pin buckle. Handmade in England. Ideal for outdoor pursuits - shooting, bushcraft etc. Best suited to someone with a small waist size. 52mm or 2" width. Appx 68cm length tightest setting, 81cm max, 26.5' to 30'. These measurements are taken from where the buckle is fixed on the belt to the holes. Realistically I think max 27-28" for the wearer. This was ordered a while back and the maximum waist size was what the minimum should have been so never used! £25 posted UK
  7. Sold pending payment ūüĎć
  8. Plastic breakdown shotgun case with foam lining. 86x30x13cm. Lockable (two holes for padlocks). Good condition though couple of tears to the foam, doesn't affect use. Selling to make space! £20 posted (UK only) via courier
  9. Interesting, looks influenced by that design. They've emailed back quickly and will send the missing components (a bolt, c clip and circular piece that should be in the middle of that handle gap). Pleased that it's being sorted but I'll need to wait another 3 weeks for to load with it now!
  10. Update - It's missing two components. A disc and a bolt that go on the arm and push down onto the plastic surface. Without these the height is wrong so can't crimp anything unfortunately. Will try and sort via email with the seller!
  11. Here it is! Just arrived today which makes it about 3 weeks delivery time. I seem to have a missing component (second bolt and c-clip that should go into that hole in the arm) but I think it'll function enough to try it out. Have emailed to see what the situation is with this. I'll do a full review once I've played about with it but initial impressions: Functionality - this should in theory prime/deprime, star crimp and re-size 20 bore cartridges Comes completely disassembled with no assembly instructions. Not too difficult to work out how to put together fortunately but you do nee
  12. Russian sellers tend to have a few up on Ebay at any time. Bought one myself a while back
  13. What was the cost of delivery for the cases? Considering a few .410
