  1. Not a 27, but I have a 26. From what I could tell they are possibly the same gun, just different years. (B26 sounds better than B27 to my ear) I like my one a lot. If it's all in good nick (ignoring the wood), parts shouldn't be too big a worry - but yes, getting a part could be an issue. Good gun IMO, and it serves me well wherever I take it without looking out of place, as it were. I didn't necessarily set out to buy my one, but it was the best fitting and feeling gun I handled... I've since grown very attached to it. Good luck
  2. I have a Norica 3-shot. I only put 3" carts through it, never had any issues with it not extracting... but as yet it isn't getting lots of work (no ferrets currently and not enough rabbits around). I'm using Lyalvale Supreme Game carts - 18gms, no6
  3. Do you mean Percussion? They seem good stuff but I've only seen their items online... from a bit of digging I believe they are behind the Solognac shooting clothing found in Decathlon stores (both brands are French, at least) which I am very impressed with - and it's at bargain prices!
  4. Got Hawkes on both of my rimmies, great scopes for the price. One on the HMR is a bout 6 years old, standing up to it well - but, I bought a new one under a year ago for my .22 and the quality has moved on quite a bit. I'm very pleased with it, especially for the price
  5. Exactly. Currently, the writing is on the wall for diesel (rightly or wrongly does not matter). If Suzuki wasn't interested in selling a diesel Jimny here in the early 2000's when fuel was a lot cheaper - and everyone was switching to diesels - I can not see them doing it now...
  6. Aye right! The Jimny has been here for almost 20 years and Suzuki has stuck to a small petrol in all that time. Everyone is out to kill off diesels currently... take note of the likes of Subaru saying they are dropping ALL diesel engines. I would be VERY surprised if Suzuki offer a diesel at any point in the new Jimny.
  7. Update on this... Was doing some shopping today and ended up in a Decathlon store. They've got a shooting/hunting section and sell these types of trousers (along with matching jackets, just like the big brands) but a name I've never heard of - Solognac. https://www.decathlon.co.uk/C-310094-shooting-trousers-and-shorts Bought 2 different pairs. There is only 1 leg length and the waist is just Small-XXLarge with not much reference as to what each size fits... tried on a Medium and it fits my 32ish inch waist well and the leg length must be around 33-34inches so I'm happy. Currently wearing the ones listed at £19.99 and am liking them so far. The other pair I bought are the top end £64 ones... you'd pay an awful lot more for big brands made to the same standard. Looking forward to getting out in them
  8. Get the right Whisky and it certainly is 👌
  9. Haha Be surprised the number of people have tried my damson brandy, liked it a lot then say they don't really like brandy..👍 Doesn't matter, mind - If it's a liquid you can put fruit in it... never been a vodka drinker, it's tasteless to me so I don't see the point. I prefer rum, brandy, whisky and as I get older I'm appreciating gin more. Bramble rum, Damson brandy and Plum whisky is what I tend to make.
  10. Aye, but what's the leg lengths like? Merry Christmas folks! Hope it's a good day for all.
  11. Cheers, Percussion are the ones I'm leaning towards... quite like the Skintane ones. What's the leg length like on them? My jeans are all 34" leg and trousers 33" - anything shorter usually looks ridiculous on me
  12. Been looking at some of these - Seeland, Percussion, Jack Pyke etc. Some look good at reasonable prices. Wanted for general shooting and maybe a bit of hiking/hill walking... I'm not really interested in which are best, BUT I can find very little info on sizings - especially leg length. I'm 6'1" tall with a 32"-33" waist and I take a 33"-34" inside leg. Doesanyone have any pairs, and can anyone give me helpful advice about sizes?
