  1. I'm having a clean though at the moment, and these are looking for a new home. There is some wear and tear, and some mildew - they look like they have been in a garage at some point - but the bindings are sound and they are intresting and informative books. Idealy, if anyone would like them, they could pick them, or failing that, I'd be happy to post them.
  2. It seems to be ok. There's certainly nothing thats obviously loose. Actualy, having had another look - what seems to be going on is that the collar end of the extractor is sometimes getting stuck at the chamber end of the two spring loaded fins that the cartridge travels over before it ends up in the chamber. When it jams, if i firk about with extractor collar, it snaps back into place and works correctly.
  3. On closer inspection, it does seem to be something to do with the extractor. When the bolt jams, it always when its being pulled back, and it will do it without a cartridge in. I'm presuming the rear of the extractor is sometimes getting caught under the lip of the grove that it sits in.
  4. Thanks for the replys on this. I went lamping this weekend with it and its a great little gun. However, I notice that the bolt sometime seems to stick - is this to be expected?or something thats easily fixed? Many thanks
  5. Hi all, Title says it all really - what should I use to oil the bolt on a Webly .410? I've read that a 'light oil' is preferable, which would exclude the Rangoon oil I normaly use - so would express gunlube or singer 3 in 1 work? Many thanks,
  6. If she is convicted, it would be a matter for the SRA, who dont take matters of dishonesty lightly. The idiotic thing about this is that is she had not lied about it, it would not have endangered her political or legal career, however, by lying, she has most likely ruined both
  7. Thanks, but in the end I got a packet of bungee cords in a rarther fetching selection of colours - which I'm sure look wonderful as I drive around I think heated seats would ruin the Landrover mystique for me, personaly. Although, thinking about it - thats probably why the noisy wiper motors have been left in...
  8. To be honest, I'd just cut the shot channels out with a bit to spare. If your planning on eating a fair amount of game - which i'm guessing you are by the sound of it - then its going to be best if you do all you can to minimise your contact with lead. Wood Pigion is delicious - and I dont like to see food go to waste - but theres no point in placing yourself in the way of harm.
  9. These look quite good - https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/science/2018/dec/04/tough-as-old-boots-a-thames-skeletons-durable-footwear-tideway-tunnel
  10. I think this will end up being the solution
  11. Hi All, I understand that this is probably an idiotic question that has an exceptionally simple answer - but - how do I get the folding seats in the back of my 1996 defender to stay so that they are folded up? Many thanks,
  12. Just for a bit of background - Carl Zeiss Jenna was the arm of Zeiss that the Soviet Union took as part of their reperations following the end of WW2, so, while mostly built on solid designs, they tend to be somewhat conservitive and the build quality not always fantastic. That said, I cant see how you could go wrong for £30 - just watch out for fungus, especially if they have been stored in a leather case
  13. It does seem quite an odd configuration - intresting though. How easy is it to shoot?
