  1. DUNKS - what ground was the gun at please? I'm in Derbyshire and my mate in Notts so may take him to view etc if its localish! Thanks
  2. Thanks all, After all the comments he's going to check the local dealers to see if he can check fit etc. Will keep you posted!
  3. Hi As title, only used a few times but still has original packaging £35 posted which will include signed for delivery Bank transfer preferred PM me for payment details if interested Thanks
  4. Hi all My mate is looking at starting up - I've told him the fit is everything and recommended the usual browning / beretta However, he's seen the Yildiz at around £1500 for a new gun/warranty with exceptional wood! I've never shot one or seen one at my local ground, hence the question to the forum if it's something to consider, or follow my advice with a tried & tested maker Must admit, I've seen pics online and some of the wood puts my 725 black to shame! Thanks in advance,
  5. Did something similar recently (with a young magpie - dont tell anyone!), caught it and put it in a lowish tree branch with plenty of foilage for cover. Gone the next day but no feathers so assumed it was ok
  6. Read this in my local paper. Couple go on a camping safari, get attacked by a lion, now suing the safari company for stress blah blah Anyone else see the irony?! https://www.nottinghampost.com/news/uk-world-news/i-never-forget-moment-woke-4379980
  7. Just down the road in Alfreton, welcome to the forum and dont forget to let us know what you get!
  8. I did the Lanc taxi run a few years ago with my dad - was lucky enough to have a Radio Operator on the same day who served on Lancs in the war. Highly recommended, however East kirkby is worth a trip any way as they have an excellent small museum and you can stand so close to the Lanc when they start and rev the Merlins They have a Mozzie now but that's really expensive We also did a static tour of the Lanc which was quite a bit cheaper than the taxi run
  9. Popped in, and fingers crossed they'll be able to source a forend for my 725. Great service and had a good chat. If only the bank balance / missus would allow more £ as they have some beauties in the shop.....
  10. I'm up the road too - planning a visit tomorrow to talk about when he'll be getting his hands on the 2020 browning 725 models! Fingers crossed on the 'decent' part-ex valuations...... Another thumbs up on Cockett Farm - if you're passing buy a slab of their own carts.
  11. Hi all I posted a wanted ad the other day for the above - I've checked the Evil Bay but nothing listed. I'm after the trap forend in matching grade wood, a local RFD tried to sell me a brand new gun however - got the impression he couldn't be bothered with just a forend tbh! I'd be very appreciative if anyone on the forum has done the same & could let me know who / where they want to get one please. Cheers,
  12. Hi all Anyone got the above or can point me in the right direction to get hold of one please? Tried a prosport last week and the trap forend is so much better for me than my schnabel! Just cant warrant exchanging my whole gun for a Prosport however. Thanks
  13. Hi For nostalgia and a sense of hunting in the old days....Jim Corbett Omnibus. Man eating tigers and leopards in India. Amazing! Also, Death in the Long Grass by Peter Capstick. I've all the collection and never get tired of the writing . Highly recommended!
  14. Hi all Thanks for the info - as a relative newbie to shotguns I've enjoyed reading the posts about the 'old' cartridges!
  15. Hi all Thanks, this forum and its members always come though! Appreciate the info. Cheers
  16. Hi all I recently picked up a mixed batch of carts from a mate of my dads who gave up shooting All are the usual Hull or Gamebore etc, but this one was one I've never seen before! Just curious if anyone could shed some light on it or have used them on the past etc Thanks all
  17. I'm just up the road in South Normanton! I've done Cockett several times and it's a great ground and very friendly
  18. Welcome - always good to see a fellow Derbys new member!
  19. it's my local ground but can't make it this week! Have a good couple of rounds though ok
  20. Hi Thanks - I'll PM you with payment details etc
  21. Hi I expect so - my Escort also had the V3 extended chokes so I expect these shims are correct.
  22. Will do these with the spacers (other ad) for £15 if anyone wants them
