  1. A good few on Guntrader from quite reasonable to the other extreme. An excellent, clean, unmarked 32" ought to be bought for between £2.75k and £3.5 tops. A 30" is worth a bit less and look out for sporterised trap guns.
  2. The OP was asking which was the best grind to fit pad - not the most appropriate one. A vulcanite plate with 'Browning' embossed on it is the most appropriate one. If its hurting you check the gun fit, the choice is yours also.
  3. Kickeez every time. They are easily shaped and smoothed down to make a perfect butt pad.
  4. Maybe mine is an early one then. I bought it for £25 at a car boot.
  5. Farleys at Kibworth have a Harkila waxed leather slip for £179.99. Bargain in my opinion.
  6. Mmmmm....... just had a look at my Croots slip and mine are sewn and riveted. Maybe yours is an earlier version before they changed the spec.
  7. Croots slips are fantastic - if you can find one s/h. The new price is eye watering. Harkila sell a really good leather slip. Sportsman are the agents I think and the price is not too savage.

  9. Have to agree. They are the softest 28gms I have shot. The 'old' Hull Sporting 100 were soft before they messed around with the recipe and branding, now they're very average.
  10. When I left school I 'lived in' on a farm near the South Yorks/North Lincs border. They killed two pigs a year for the house and they were fed on anything that didn't have to be bought. No freezers in those days, stone slabs in a cellar underground did the job. After pig killing the task was to eat as much of it as you could in the shortest time before it went off. Hams were cured and so were sides of bacon.Unbelievable pork pies and amazing sausages. The bacon however consisted of mostly fat with a thin line of lean meat that looked as if it had been drawn with a felt tip pen. It was OK when

    Pity you're so far East. One sold yesterday on Guntrader in a couple of hours for £375. Long way from you unfortunately.

    Why don't you try Guntader? There are lots of them advertised at the sort of price you have in mind.
  13. Nah! Sorry. Its gone past me I'm afraid.
  14. I'm glad you owned up to this as I couldn't possibly see why you thought the Jag was the best car. The Macan is superior in every way, it drives better, has better reliability than the Jag. Not an opinion - fact.
  15. I wouldn't take too much notice of this if I were you. None of the manufacturers are talking about price rises. Charlie Bull has a shed full of cartridges and not many customers so draw your own conclusion.
  16. Jags a bit ordinary though don't you think?
  17. Borrowed a mates 3.0 diesel and I haven't really slept well since. They are something else and very, very nice. I really want one.
  18. Aluminium grain shovel, bag of Nitram and some hessian bags would get you anywhere. Proven!
  19. Isn't this the home of 'Youngs 303" gun oil? I still have an old bottle, I don't use it apart from taking off the lid and having a sniff, takes me back years and years.
  20. Interesting you should say that. I've had two German cars and they were the biggest pile of **** I've ever owned! Ran a Freelander 2 up to 100K and it never had a spanner on it apart from servicing.
  21. Has to be the Freelander. It ticks all the boxes.
  22. And you want a lightweight 12g?!! You must be a big strong lad.
  23. The cure for this is to put a light coating of grease or petroleum jelly in the chambers when you clean the gun. It works but its a bit of a faff.
  24. Not so long ago Krieghoff had complaints about spent cases not ejecting fully after firing. Eventually they started to chrome the chambers to get over this. Some of the earlier K80s will still be suffering with this frustrating problem.
  25. Well I had no idea such things existed! Another wrinkle in your bum as my mum used to say.
