  1. Hello all, I have 7 dogs, A German Shepherd and 6 working Cockers. ( yes I know I'm mad !) they live outside in a kennel I made myself approx 8x5x 8 foot high it is double lined and has a swing door which self closes they have a large yard they use as a run, They have always slept in large plastic dog beds but as one of them is getting on in years I am eager to add some bedding I've been using straw but as its been so wet this year this doesn't last very long before it is soaked. Can anyone recommend any other material I could use ?
  2. I have 7 dogs 6 Working Cockers and a a German Shepherd and think that the main advantage with Arkrights over other dry foods and I've tried plenty over the years is the reduction in the amount of waste they produce after. They have always seem remain fuller for longer and generally keep in good condition.With some of the other dry foods they seem to become really skitish and cause much more noise and chaos ( 7 dogs can cause a lots of chaos !) I had a problem with one of the dogs losing weight thinking she had a problem with wheat (gluten) I went back to raw feeding all of them which I have to say is better in every way. I appreciated that this is not convenient for everyone I would have no issues in recommending Arkrights.
  3. Thanks everyone , I now have the rifle in my possession. The rifle itself works o.k but has had a hard life ( He found it in an old shed that he was clearing out) There is surface rust which I have tidied up at little and given it a coat of matt black spray paint.The stock in it's standard trim looks as if it has been painted by a blind man using a dog as a paint brush, boy is it **** ! I took the scope off my Hatsan and tried to see if it would fit it does but the rails seem to be off centre so the cross hairs which we straight on the Hatsan appear more like an x that a + (if that makes sense) I'm not going to touch the stock but if it was mine I would sand it down and give it a reasonable coat of paint. He intends only to use it for plinking in his Garden 12meter(ish) so at least he can have a bit of fun with it and see if he likes it. Will that off setting of the rails cause major problems ? Thanks again all.
  4. Hello Everyone, A friend of mine has asked me to source a cheap scope for him, After looking at photos of the rifle I've worked out its a rather mistreated SMK B2 as I don't have the rifle at present ( he is supposed to be bringing it to me in the near future) I'm wondering if anyone knows the size of the scope rails I will need. As the barrel looks to have a fair amount of surface rust I also intend to clean it up but will I be able to give it a coat of spray paint or is this a bad idea. Thanks for your help
  5. Thanks washer boy I searched for ages and found nothing ! You obviously did better than me!
  6. Hello All, I have acquired a Remington Pest Controller rifle which I wish to purchase a set of tele sights but am not sure of the sight rail size , has anyone any info. Thanks all
  7. I contacted Peter Dyson (as surgested by Gordon R) and have sent the broken pin to him for replicating, about the £15 mark so not a bad result really. I have better quality guns but enjoy using this one the most plus I'll now have an extra connection with it as I've put some effort into it.Chears all.
  8. UPDATE: It was the little dowls holding the pin in now I just need to source a new pin !
  9. O.K I took it apart !! I take it the firing pins are held in by the small metal dowls nearby them on the picture ,what do you think ? Sorry about the naff pictures my phones worse than my gun !!
  10. I only paid £100 for the gun it had been sat as a spare in the chaps collection having had very little use . It was really stiff when I first had it but it loosened off in the end probably why the pin broke ??
  11. Hello All, Went out on the clays today with my trusty (until now) twin trigger o/u, halfway through my gun jammed half open but loaded I tried for 10 mins to reopen it until someone else tried it only for it to open first time (typical) I then noticed it rattling, I gave it a gun shake and the pin fell out . As this was only a cheap gun is it likely to be worth fixing ? Has anyone any idea of the possible range of cost ? forgot to ad its a Acciaio Breda B4 Thanks all
  12. Lenght of pull is 14 1/2 inchs, from what I've read and videos I've looked at this will need to come down to about(ish) 13 1/2 inchs, one inch making 4 inch difference on the thumb to nose measurement.
  13. We did see a coach and booked a lesson for her but as we still had the guns over our shoulders he asked to have a look. The first thing he said was the gun was far too long and the second was that she shoots with one eye closed (I must admit I do this myself) He said she would most likeley be better off with a 20 bore built for a youth. The worst thing is I was given the gun she was using but the gun I brought for her originally is a lot longer (I now use this) yet my local gun shop said it was a good fit. I won't be using them again ! I got her to stand side on with the gun mounted and as it's such an over reach for her she was clearly struggling to hold it on target. her front hand is 5 to 6 inchs back from where I hold it .
  14. Sorry for the confusion the measurement I gave was from the knuckle of her thumb to her nose when she has the gun mounted. This was 7 inchs and I allowed 2 inch as the required distance so 7 minus 2 = 5. Hope that makes sense ? I was going to cut 1/4 ich at a time until I got to the required size.Just over an inch if I listen to what people say ! Someone came up with idea of a 20g gun but all the guns anywhere near my price range seemed to be the same lenght ! As regards adding weight to the stock what sort of amounts are we talking ?
  15. I have an old but fully useable 12g shotgun which I am thinking of cutting the stock on so that my other half can use a gun which is nearer to fitting her ( she presently uses this but with a real bad fit, 5 inch out). As I am a little challenged in ££££ terms this would make more sense than selling it and getting a 20g.The gun has no real value. What do you think ? Is there much difference in recoil from a 12g with 21 gram load to a 20g with a 21gram load ? Thanks for your views
