    Nsi .410

    Looking at the box in the picture "Davey and Son" for £7.95.

    Semi Auto Advise

    I've never wanted more gun for my money with the Affinity, never had an issue and it cycles 67mm cartridges. Yes it doesn't look too exciting being plastic and black but it does what it says on the box faultlessly.

    KOFs

    The youth model I bought just before Christmas has ejectors which was a surprise for £495.

    KOFs

    Better to be too low than too high unless your handy with a rasp!

    KOFs

    Be sure to try the triggers on Kofs as they have a reputation for being very heavy and not easy to adjust. I looked at buying one in 28 bore/youth stocked for my vertically challenged wife but after trying the trigger I very quickly changed my mind and bought a Yildiz instead. Out of interest the comb height of the Kofs is higher than the Yildiz, and my wife's youth 28 Yildiz as weighed just now is 5lb 10oz.

    garden gun

    Yes so long as barrels are 24" minimum and it doesn't have a detachable magazine nor have the capability of holding any more than 2 shots in the magazine and 1 in the chamber.

    28 bore

    And now even cheaper as they have dropped the price to match Kofs circa £495.

    KOFS

    Just out of interest I have just gone through the process of choosing either the Kofs or Yildiz in 28b youth configurations. I had my wife handle both and whilst there was little between them we found the comb height of the Kofs to be better for her. So off to the local gun shop we went with funds to buy the Kofs, once there we received some excellent help and advice from one of the staff who told us that Yildiz have dropped their prices to match Kofs (£495), so I decided again to get my wife to try both but this time to try the triggers with snap caps. Well the Kofs trigger was so heavy I could see the barrels being pulled to the right before the sears released, the Yildiz was a massive improvement and that made the decision for me. Yes I know I need to raise the comb height by about 10mm but that's easy and cheap, but to try and sort a heavy trigger pull with no guarantees. Oh and the Kofs is 1 year warranty whilst the Yildiz is 2 years. A big thankyou to Greenfields Gun Shop in Salisbury for their help as ever.

    Cheep .22 fac springer or help wanted

    I see no reason why you can't put your HW77 as FAC, its just not easy (or indeed possible depending on which Firearms department you talk to) to have it legally removed from FAC status. I think an HW77 would make a fine FAC gun at modest powers using light pellets Don't ever think a springer/gas ram can be as accurate as a PCP at much higher than 20ft/lb, the recoil and trigger pull will put pay to that!

    Short Stocked 28 bore OU Wanted

    Unfortunately hardly local for me! I'd like to see before I buy and by the time RFD fees are involved the prices are above my budget.

    Short Stocked 28 bore OU Wanted

    That's the sort of thing I was looking for but just can't find one locally. My wife and son are getting impatient wanting to try clay shooting with me but as they are both tiny it's not easy to find a gun that fits.
