    1. Hello Selling a couple of parts. Shotgun pistol grip stock Taking off a 500 Mossberg but ? looks like an aftermarket part and may/would fit something else ? Remington 870 ? Don't know , just don't like it so I am changing it for a standard stock. 8/10 Black plastic with long stock bolt and butt pad, marked as Speedfeed. York area if you need to check fit first. £35 posted. Maverick 88 standard fore end . This was switched off a Mossberg maverick 12g in favor of a mag rail and is in good condition 9.5/10. Will not fit other Mossberg slide action shotguns, the 88 is compatible with some 500 series but not this part. (molded unit) £15 posted Cash, Cheques, Paypal (but not as GIFT) Open to sensible offers if they don't sell by payday. i work odd hours so leave me a message and I will get back to you.
    2. Cheers for that, may end up going down that route, taking a pistol grip stock off and putting on an original.
    3. Hello Anyone got a Mossberg bolt for attaching the stock to the receiver? I think it is 5.5 inches long and 5/16. Cheers N.
    4. UKpsa do a 2 day safety course that is really good, look on their website for details. If you don't have a S1 then they can usually loan a semi auto section 2 shotgun, you need a cartridge belt and a slab of cartridges (I used 7.5 28g). Find a local club and see what other people use before spending loads of dosh. North Coates in Grimsby is good if you are up north.
    5. Hello I have some sloe gin and sloe vodka due to be filtered in a couple of weeks, I usually reuse the boozy sloes with sherry but I heard about using them for sloe Whisky. Anyone do this, and if so do you add anything else - more sugar, cloves /cinnamon stick?. Thanks in advance. N.
    6. Hi, anyone got a black synthetic stock for a Mossberg 500 going cheap? Just asking around before I approach the person you are all going to recommend. Cheers N.
    7. Hello Many apologies to PW for my language. This not a joke, simply a question as stated in the title about a gunsmith re crowning and shortening a barrel to open up the choke. The idea of posting on the forum was so that suggestions, ideas and views on this particular issue could be be exchanged. N.
    8. Hi. Having difficulty hitting a cows **** with a cricket bat at the moment. I am right in thinking that cutting the end of a fixed choke and removing the choked section will make the new barrel a wider choke ie: full choke to cylinder? Also has anyone had a gunsmith do this and a rough idea of cost? This would seem a cheaper option than having chokes fitted? Cheers N.
    9. Hello got my hands on a basic Manufrance Pump action 12g. Can't find a manual or information online, anyone had / got one and can tell me about it? "Acier Special" is stamped on it but I think this may relate to the metal rather than the model, possibly a Rapid ? Cheers. N.
    10. "Just off with a load of cash to visit someone I've met on the internet" Despite my instructor telling me that pump action shotguns are only for poor people and bank robbers I was looking for a cheap pump action 12g and managed to score 8 out if ten on my last purchase. Not a bad morning, always feel a little worried that I am visiting an unfamiliar area with cash but have always been ok, in the past I had a possible scary moment when 4 blokes in a transit turned up to meet me in a deserted car park one morning but they turned out to be genuine and on route to a construction job when I was selling a Ratcatcher. My score system is: 1 point for within 45 min drive to view.(Prefer face to face) 2 points for item matching description not a rusty pile of **** or having driven to a shop , been told "Just sold it mate" 1 point for buying from a home and not a badly lit car park / lay by. 1 point for offer of cup of tea/ coffee/ au pair (you never know) 1 point for friendly chat about guns history. 1 point for being worth more than I am paying.(Did point this out at the time but he just wanted to get rid and have cabinet space). 1 point for not stabbing me, mugging me and running off with my hand full of fivers. Anyone else have a positive / negative shopping day? 10/10 would be cartridges/ extra chokes/ shiny things or a gun slip chucked in with purchase and offer of a meet at a clay ground to try gun out with a bacon sandwich.
    11. Hello, This is my gun that I am selling to make space for a pump action, would px if you have anything in the lower price bracket..... N.
