  1. Just like you Silverpigeon69, I'm surprised that you weren't asked to model.
  2. I had a look at a Kofs 20g a few weeks ago and liked the feel and fit, and would have brought it had I not opened the gun. The top chamber was lined with rust 😲 so no sale.
  3. @Silverpigeon69 has the ellipse in a 12g game, and he shoots very well with it. Very pretty gun and well made, the "game scene" always attracts attention!
  4. Fantastic! Are we talking many hundreds of pounds?
  5. Good thinking, but I prefer the taller action of the 525, it suits my odd proportions!
  6. One for the stockers amongst us, would it be feasible to convert a standard pistol grip to a prince of wales stock on a Browning b525? I really like the handling of a pow on a game gun, but I am finding it difficult to find a 525/325 etc. pre owned with one, unless it has short barrels or a short stock. Just an idea, but would like the opinion of someone in the know. Thanks
  7. Asking for a friend, looking for a driven day in Cumbria over the Christmas holidays 22nd to the 26th of December. Thanks
  8. I think that the s&b pm 6x42 was used by the British forces as it's sniper scope in the 1980's-90's so should be a very robust design.
  9. The gun dog display wasn't bad, but not many dealers this year, and those that were didn't have a great sense of customer service. Most stalls were difficult to engage with staff, my high point was when I was trying on a pair of trousers at the Harkila dealer, south African guy, in a make shift changing room, when the assistant pulled open the curtain and socked me in the face by accident, forgot I was in there! Not so much as a "sorry". I enjoyed it last year, but not even the traders want to be there.
  10. Just thought I'd mention that the Ardingly autumn and game fair is this weekend. https://www.seas.org.uk/autumn-show/
  11. How are people finding these now that they have been in the field for a few months? I am selling my hw100 to fund a .17hmr and love the look and feel of the tikka from handling one in the shop
  12. What a generous thing to do, hats off to you sir.
  13. I will have a look Really! I thought Meat eater was bad enough with Vortex optics and First light camo splashed on everything.
