  1. Provisionally sold, pending payment.
  2. Designed for .22 LR Subsonic caliber. Zero on maximum magnification at 50 yards and its bang on at all other ranges. All aim points pre-calculated 1057 fps. Red & green illuminated reticle. Immaculate condition with no marks or damage. Comes with two Hawke weaver mounts. £90 posted.
  3. Digger, that is really good of you, and yes...that's the one! My new sight came supplied with the rubber one as shown in Rewulf's link but it just keeps falling out.
  4. I know it's unlikely but does anybody have one of the screw-in port covers for the ATN x-sight they're not using and would sell?
  5. I'm using CCI subs - this is the only cartridge I have found which will cycle my Remington 597. I have also noticed a couple of rounds out of every 100 seem unusually loud. I was using a second had generic moderator and I put it down to the mod being knackered so fitted a new A-Tech Wave and its exactly the same...every now and then theres a really loud crack.
  6. You really do need to get all of the dust out of the holes or you may well find the resin doesn't bond to the wall material at all.
  7. Yep, I'll take these please.
  8. If Oly doesn't I will!
  9. Well, sort of...I bought myself a battery pack but then realised that my Photon does not actually have a connection point for external batteries. I am surprised to learn that a Mk 1 does have a connection point while mine, which is presumably a later model, does not.
  10. Thanks Salopian, Brock & Norris were actually the first recommendation given to me...and I may still end up going there. It is their price that made me think twice, Brock & Norris charge £125 plus VAT to do this work. When I factored in the fuel costs to take the rifle up to Whitchurch and then go back and collect it on completion its going to total up to about £140. It was at that point I thought I'd try a machine shop!
  11. It is if I can't find a gunsmith who wants the work. To date I have contacted five gunsmiths within striking distance and I have only had one response - and the price quoted is £145.
  12. As the barrel is already screwcut - and proof marked accordingly - all I am doing is re-machining exactly the same feature five inches nearer to the breach. I do appreciate that its a legal requirement if/when I come to sell the rifle but logically I don't see that I am weakening the barrel in any way. I actually wouldn't take the undercut quite as deep as shown in the photograph so if anything the new work should be stronger than the original.
  13. Those were the days...they haven't quoted a price yet but I reckon it will have gone up by at least a hundred!
