  1. Best wishes chap, hope it all turns out ok. Good luck.
  2. I had my MPR serviced and wrapped my connect up in a fleece for the journey home to keep it safe. On arriving I realised that the house key was in said fleece, so I whipped it out of the kit bag and spun the scope across a block paved drive. It landed on the sunshade and badly bent it. I eased it back to shape and the scope is as good as new. I also have a Viper on a 308 with no issues other than making sure it's tight.
  3. "Outside is brilliant!" is the latest random exclamation
  4. There something irresistible about a nice bit of Damascus steel

    Semi Auto,

    Coz they just don't "feel" quality like something like the Beretta. Tried an A612 when I was shopping for an SA and came away with a AL390 Golden Mallard for the same money. The Armsan just felt a bit "tinny", only way I can describe it. Fine if you want a tool to chuck in the Landy it's just not what I was looking for at the time.
  6. Mate had exactly this too with his 525
  7. Kaya sounds good to me
  8. It's all about the craic. I managed two doughnuts in a row today by range finding mistakes, but you know what, two people gave me tips for ranging in deep woods that will definitely help. Not often your competitors will tell you where you're going wrong and how to fix it. This was an open competition. I'm lucky enough to be able to shoot HFT virtually every weekend of the year.
  9. 15mm 13-25yds Max range is 45yds, can be a 35mm kill but must have 10mm of plate round it. Whistle goes, no touchy scope. 1 for a plate, 2 for a knock down, smiley face for fresh air. No sitting shots. Mostly prone where you can rest your rifle butt on the deck. At least one free stander and one free kneeler per round plus supported positionals. Easy? Try it. Not quite as frustrating as golf but close. Can be anything between 15 and 40mm
  10. Can't read that. Just the link wording has my blood boiling
  11. Shame, I have one in Sussex sat in my cab doing nowt. But have to agree with the above, Bosher's your man.
  12. Pick up a second hand S400 kit and have change for an air bottle.
  13. Got one sat in the cabinet, fixed chokes, reliable. Never been a problem. 1st gun.
  14. Just incase anyone else has light strikes using Eley ammunition try RWS. Not had a single misfire since changing. Thanks Fultons for the tip.
  15. Not recommended, wire ret so won't like the recoil. Hawke responded within the hour. Pretty good service. Scope is actually marked VAR832X42M
  16. Cheers I'll get the model number and try them. Turns out gun is coming with 30mm rings too so I've an MTC that'll stand it if not.
  17. I have one of the above scopes and want to know if it'll cope with a .308. Do any PW members have any experience of this combination? Any advice would be appreciated.

    B2 refurb

    You can roll it in glitter though
  19. Think I'd strip and hand oil it myself 1st, you'd be surprised how much better it'll look. If you really don't think it's any better you've not lost much.
  20. Can't remember the last time I saw a thrush or heard a cuckoo, jackdaws and magpies out number everything else.

    This and clean the barrel if you've not done it lately.
  22. Been shooting indoor prone for 18 months and just been introduced to full bore target. SR though not TR HOOKED Very generous mate mentoring and allowing me to use his kit. Shot 600yds with a Lee Enfield No4 (7.62) so far. And compared to 20yds indoor I mean soooooo far. Not tried 1000yds yet! Have no idea what to buy
  23. Take a look in the craft and DIY section of the forum, some useful information there.
  24. I think I stole it off him a while back. Fitted the afore mentioned Lyn Lewington setback trigger, new seal and a megapolish. Just needs a tin of pellets to settle down which I shall endeavour to accomplish tomorrow. Will see how it performs before investing in a tbt drop in kit. The only real faff stripping these is the safety mechanism and once you've sussed that it's easy.
