  1. My mate took one home as a try before you buy, he's a regular customer there, came back and stuck it through the chronograph, 9ftlb. Anyway, I laughed as I had been telling him to buy a ultra for weeks, I bought a ultra to prove the point, that came in at about 9/10ftlb too. He took it back and bought a fx royale.

    MS Word?

    That's what I use
  3. Well I bought a hornet 600 2003reg. Pick it up Tuesday 👍
  4. I kill crows but enjoy shooting pigeons
  5. Dunno what this was this morning
  6. Now I looked at taking the boy to center parks agsin, we went 2 years ago. Only for the long weekend/3 nights, admittedly in peak time August. £1200. Not a chance. Tent it is then unless I find a cheap deal for abroad
  7. I've pushed the budget to £2.7k. Probs do 3.5k if I had another week as I could transfer some funds over but I'm not really keen on that idea for something that will live in the garage 3/4 of the year. I'd rather buy a 1.7-2k bike and have the rest as a good full service on it I've been predominantly looking at in this order (Ish) Zx9r Vfr800 Vtr1000 Er6f Yam xj600 naked 2010 on Sv1000 Fazer 600 Bandit 600 or 1200 Thundercat Zx6r Hornet 600 or 900 And as a kicker I've seen a Zx12r with 205bhp 😬 but it looks like a drag bike with that extended swing arm with a mot. I know I'll kill myself on that but.... Nothing is local atm, and I hate going into Poole/bristol with a passion. I don't do any large towns if I'm honest
  8. No I haven't I'll have a look
  9. I've been looking at one of these for a while now, lockdown boredom but couldn't really find any decent reviews anywhere. It's on hold atm, I might have a superten on the back burner but if that fails, I'll see if I can handle one.
  10. Right had a Google You should be fine with a mk3 they are standard size. But I'll add they are a pig to stay on, all meteors have shallow groves (apart from the mk1 which I'm certain mine had raised rails). I've got 2 piece mounts and carefully filled a sliver off the bottom to help the grip, and seriously over tightened the grub screws. I doubt when this comes off those mounts will be used again. It seems a common problem with the mounts not gripping the meteor on other forums. I've got a Richter optic on mine, I quite like them but I use it for bashing cans not hunting, the crosshairs are quite thick. I'd go hawke if I bought again. Also I've used smk and mount master, I wouldn't bother with either, stick with hawke 👍
  11. Ah hold on I'm not sure, hopefully another member might help here Some meteors came with 15mm rails, in which case I'd worry about finding mounts first I'll have a Google a min
  12. I'd say that's just a touch overkill with 50mm. You'd need high mounts, and don't know if you'd be able to break the barrel with a long scope because of the overhang. I'd stick to 3-9x40 or even a nice 4x32, as it's realistically a 25 yard gun, tops. I've a 4x32 on my meteor.
  13. My boss is getting rid of the manual 18plate and getting the auto just because he hates towing in manual (tows a 750kg chipper).
