  1. If you don’t get payment up front and the buyer doesn’t show at the rfd or declines the gun then you’re out of pocket for postage, at least in one direction and possibly two. Depending on gun value that could be annoying or a chunk of the value of the gun. There’s always an element of trust with online transactions. I’ve done bank transfer and PayPal (friends and family). Don’t mention anything about guns in the transaction or paypal will cancel the payment, as their rules state it’s not allowed to be used to purchase firearms.
  2. Took the gun out last night and had a go with the newly arrived steel wool. Gentle but continued rubbing, with plenty of oil, seems to have done the trick and not damaged the finish in any obvious way. Phone ran out of battery so no photos, but looks several times better. I’m not sure I’d want to try the same on a more expensive gun, in case it don’t work out, but all good on this occasion. Thanks all.
  3. A valid point! I did take a couple of photos but e light was poor and it really didn’t show up clearly the issue. Haven’t managed to get the gun out again since (the joys of homeschool and working) but will do so. Appreciate all the suggestions- as can be seen from this short thread, there’s no one straightforward answer. A good point about taking the stock off, as presumably the gun’s been wet or stored slightly damp... however for the price I paid it’s not really worth having a gunsmith look at it.
  4. Thanks - I’ve had a go with oil and a rag for a good while. Small improvement. I’ve ordered some 0000 wire wool so will have a shot with that and more oil. It’s a cheap rizzini I picked up for Pigeon bashing, but it’s not a bad looking thing and I like taking care of my stuff generally too.
  5. What’s the best way to go about this? I’ve been searching away and there’s conflicting answers, ranging from just gun oil and a rag/elbow grease, to using fine steel wool or bronze brushes, or brasso type polish.
  6. Where’s the like button?! Great post.
  7. Yes, unfortunately. Greatest country in the world.
  8. An opinion piece at that. The Scotsman was once a respected quality broadsheet here, they lost claim to that title a long time ago. BBC is also pro-union, I’m surprised that they don’t float the boat of the OP. But getting your news on YouTube....
  9. Tell me about it. My truck was 6 tears old when I got it. The interior was in great condition. 2 years of 3 kids in it... now looks like it’s been used to transport livestock around in for a decade 😬.
  10. I looked into it... pricey 😜
  11. 😃 To be fair, I’ve been looking for one of these for ages (and have seen god knows how many in different models/configurations), but was after exactly this spec. From the photo I could just see it was tailgate, and t6 I’m sure came in 2016. Given the reasonable price I’d have already guessed it was a 16/17. To my extreme disappointment, Mrs H, who will be driving it most to be fair, wishes a different colour. Grrrrrr. Someone will pick up a great van here. From the additional photos and video walk round (see that’s a proper seller 😀), it’s clear it’s been very well looked after.
  12. I’ll send you a pm!
  13. Possibly interested... lwb, and how many seats?
  14. Amazon always have deals on whisky too, worth checking for one of the suggestions there.
  15. Mice and Cawdor have your answers.
