    10 bore adaptor

    I used the link and contacted the firm, it seems they should be able to make a reducer to allow me to use smaller bore cartridges but they will need the barrel to measure up for fitting. When the restrictions lift I will travel down. Thanks for the information 👍

    10 bore adaptor

    I think I will take up reloading for the 10 bore once I have spent a bit of time using it. I will source an adapter for 16 bore cartridges and possibly 20 bore too and have some fun with that.

    10 bore adaptor

    Thanks rbrowning2 I will drop them an email and let you know how I get on I have dealt with Mandel previously, they supplied a replacement modified choke for the cutts body on my Winchester model 12
  4. Thanks for the replies. I have just bought a single barrel 10 and was hoping to use the 16 bore cartridges I have left from a now sold 16 to get used to the tens weight and handling and maybe also get a 20 bore adapter. I think once I get some cases together I would fancy reloading. I don’t expect to go through many cartridges but I think it would be worthwhile. Is it possible to buy a hand tool loading set for 10 bore that would allow me to reload on a small scale?
  5. Does anyone know of a source for 10 bore adaptors to allow cheap clay practice. I contacted Allan Myers years back and he advised going down 2 bores ie to 16 bore but I didn’t take him up on his offer to make them for me. I have now bought a 10 bore and would like to get used to handling it on a few clays. Does any one have any ideas or contacts ? Thanks in advance for any help

    10 bore adaptor

    10 bore sub gauge adaptor required to allow cheap practice on clays. 12;16 or 20 bore would prefer 16 bore but will consider anything, thanks for looking
  7. Could I buy this please if still available?
  8. Congratulations I don’t think you will be disappointed. There was one for sale in Holts in Spring last year. I was shooting clays at Dunkeld House Hotel in March and called in to Dicksons and asked about the Alex Martin badged over and unders . They had two for sale cheapest was £6000 . I was told by one of the gunsmiths if I got the Holts one for sale last year for £3000 hammer price I would have got a bargain. I bought the Alex Dalgleish over and under in Holts March sale this year at low estimate ,very pleased with it hope you are just as pleased with yours.
  9. Thanks for the information,I will pass it on to PayPal
  10. No apologies necessary, I jumped too quick without checking.I have been caught out once before with a Barbour jacket. It arrived from China with a mixture of buttons and no liner. If it doesn’t arrive PayPal will reimburse, if it does it might be as advertised.
  11. Ordered via PayPal but site is China sourced ,looks like it was a scam site. I’m expecting PayPal will refund in due course
  12. I saw one downing a lapwing on Wigtown Bay. When a carrion crow landed a hundred yards or so from it the peregrine was able to carry the lapwing off.
  13. I think overseas buyers especially America might be the source of much of the bidding. I was surprised that the Alex Martin badged Saleri over and under under went for low estimate though.
  14. In the early seventies when single barrels were more commonly used I shared an AYA cosmos 12 bore with my dad. When it was my turn we slipped the .410 adapter in . It dealt with rabbits flushed from gorse fine at normally quite close range. I still have it.

    16 bore

    Is your 16 1100 built on a scaled down frame ? I shot one when a teenager in the mid 70s with a friend from school on his fathers farm ,we amassed a bag of 13 pigeon between us with the one gun. I didn’t stop talking about it to my father for weeks. No he didn’t buy me one. Would you be able to post a picture of it ?
