  1. I think every gun I've owned has had this, to some extent or other. Didn't cross my mind it was an issue, until now 😀

    Browning 525 stock

    Looking for a stock for a 525, in good nick. Not the adjustable version. to fit a 2017 525. ta.
  3. Been sat in my garage for a year and a half as I didn’t end up getting the gun it was intended for. Used only to pump up some bike tyres to test it out. Comes boxed with accessories/spares/manual as pictured. £30 posted. Or collection Dalkeith, Midlothian.
  4. This thread itself answers the question why folk would want to vote snp/independence.
  5. New unused Brady Cartridge belt. No box. 12G, 25 closed loops. Size medium. Approx 40” total length (not a 40” waist, hence me selling!) £50 including postage.
  6. As soon as we’re allowed out our own counties ☹️
  7. No my rfd is still doing it, as was the one down south.
  8. I’ve seen a couple online for 2-3 grand plus, way out my budget. Granted one was large and very plush looking. I do realise a cabinet maker isn’t going to be charging me £20/hour, but I’m a fair way off £3k for a cabinet. My guns total value is comfortably less than that! I’ve not really thought through the corner aspect. I guess a standard one just sitting in the corner but bolted through a solid triangular piece of timber behind it may work... that may require more thought on my part... But as above, really I’m not looking for much more than a carcass into which I can put the cabinet, and a clock on the top. A lighter, more modern oak or similar maybe. I’ve not been able to find any sort of standard cabinet I can try and bastardise either, yet. I’m no woodworker mind you.
  9. Anyone have one or make one? Looking at getting or having made a corner grandfather clock, and putting in a gun cabinet in the body (so the clock face/mechanism would be just be a modern clock, not pendulums etc). From looking online they’re a crazy price. Surely a cabinet maker would be able to make a shell of it at a reasonable price?
  10. Got to agree about it being a decent bunch on the whole. And like any online transaction, you can gauge a seller’s trust from their history/standing, details and photos of the item etc.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
