  1. Luke, you’re going to stand more chance if you state what model your Tikka is. No good being offered a T3 magazine if you’ve got an M55.
  2. Damn it, missed them! Looks like you’re having a good clear out. Any more to come?
  3. Of course, you know it's illegal to go to Helston without going to Anns Pasties, don't you? A 2 minute drive from Flambards and 4 minutes from Helston Gunsmiths.
  4. I agree that some of the information about them online is incorrect. However, I have acquired quite a bit of original advertising material over the years so am better informed than most about them, I suppose.
  5. Had mine for 25 years or more and never been 'pinched' by it yet. Maybe that'll prove to be famous last words, but what are you pinching?! With one hand around the barrels/foreend and the other on the top lever I'm struggling to see what's loose to get nipped unless you're shooting naked! Nice gun, by the way, John. Mine is also a Plume, but a lower grade than yours.
  6. Not sure why these are viewed as difficult to reload. Lift the top lever, pull the breach back, fired cases drop off at the sides and you insert fresh cartridges into the chambers. I don't find mine awkward to use at all.
  7. Thanks for the link. Unfortunately, BWM won't speak to the public (as I have just been bluntly informed on the phone- note to self, forget the pair of new Mirokus I was going to treat myself to) and I can't see a dealer spending half an hour ordering something worth a couple of quid from them.
  8. I bought one of these last week for a hide gun and would like to tweek it to get the comb a little higher. Does anyone have the shims which were supplied with them when new or know if they’re available?
  9. I blame the summer for my general lack of desire to get out. I went stalking last weekend and the midges made it unbearable. I am shooting a few crows but have no desire to get out foxing or anything else. I bought a NV scope over a week ago and haven't zeroed it yet. Maybe it's an age thing, but my wish to get out shooting has rarely been weaker.
  10. Not exactly what you asked, but I have used 70 grain bullets in several 243s over the years. I haven’t found one which wouldn’t shoot them yet.
  11. Should you need to do this again... Take the plastic insert out of the ring, put the base in a vice or workmate with the ring uppermost. Put a piece of wood like a hammer shaft or even the end of your yardbrush handle in the ring. Turn the ring, which will loosen it without ********* up the screw. You may mark the top of the base slightly as it turns.
  12. Lets add a Carrion which was eyeing up ducklings this morning whilst I was taking my BR out for a drive. 321
