  1. So to sum it up, good deal agreed on, then instore they wanted £250 more without the added £20 a month extra after already negotiating a deal, after you go out of your way to visit a store to be told the above (as most people would as they can't be ***** with the hassle of ringing - as Scully points out reasons why-, then have to ring to complain and take up the original offer. Not sure I'd class that as good customer service
  2. I use stihls 3.2mm and 2.8mm (round red line) at work but that's coming out of the beast fs460c. Pretty effective upto about 1/2 inch bramble stems. In the battery junk we use 2.8mm and tbh it's not bad stuff, well it's the reason we use it. Can't remember the brand tho. I'll find out. I've tried all sorts in my line of work, dozens of kinds, brands, colours and shapes, as I literally strim for 6 hours a day in the summer and the one I hate the most is square of any brand. Some swear by it but It vibrates at high rpm and gives me havs. Also I use roughly 300 meters a month (we buy proper bulk now in kms now, tho stocks are low atm😅) so loosing a fair bit is expected if going near stones, wire, stakes ect ect If your not desperate, drop me a pm, I'll pop into work and grab you some to try and pop it in the post next week
  3. End of the week last chance All the .257 £60 posted (275no)
  4. Not a lot Both have single stage triggers apart from the mk2 is plastic, mk1 metal. Mk1 and 2 have single piece clocking arm where later models and I think the 's' have 2 piece. Mk1 are blued, mk2 are painted. Tho Im starting to think this mk1 has been painted previously. I've a issue atm the mk1 came to me in 3 bags, and the barrel is drooping when fully locked up/closed. Time to strip it again.... As for accuracy, never found them amazing but good enough for close range stuff
  5. I've seen it a fair bit with the dead ones, in fact some of the wounded or kicking ones can get swamped by others. Also I have witnessed in my tunnel traps years ago was stoats and polecats taking the rats, basically chewing off what they could and taking the body away leaving heads, legs ect. It puzzled me for a long time as I knew a fox couldn't get at them
  6. I've been after one for a while at the right price so I can put the airguns in and fabricate a locking bar so it can go over the stairs, locked up. Fed up of them taking up the cabinet space
  7. Failing that, there's some perspex ones on ebay for under a tenner or racks turn up every once in a while
  8. In the pub I worked in years ago, the old muzzle loader was held up with some thing like these but bigger and shaped to the barrels and grip. Basically to stop **** heads trying to pull it off but it looked alright and not too obtrusive
  9. Very accurate little guns tho the trigger is **** the more you pump it. It will probably blow a seal before it gets enough wind in it to kill the elephant these things are renowned for. Imo not worth over £50, the custom stock is more desirable and might fetch £60 😂 Barnett wildcat, jez, that's going back a few years. I remember bending bolts with one because the thing would go through 3/4 ply like butter...
  10. 38no 243 sold 👍 Just the .257 left
  11. Hi Mel What cal is it? I had a .22 as a teen, my first proper airgun and loved it, the .177s never really went over 8-9ftlb where as the .22s were 11ftlb. What's he asking for it?
  12. Payment received 👍 All .223 sold and ready to be posted
  13. Got a mk1 and mk2 here now I've been fiddling with 👍
  14. £45 posted pete I can do PayPal but send it as normal, I'd rather you had buyer protection and ill take the hit so to speak.
  15. Some reloading items for sale Not to clued up as I personally don't reload myself so excuse my expertise as i have zero in this field. i will add loads of pictures so you can see what your looking at. All prices are posted royal mail second class. Boxed heads Nosler Ballistic tip varmints .257 25cal 85 gr Spitzer price is for both (2) boxes of unopened 100 (total 200) cheapest I can see these is £48 a box without postage £70 posted. Hornady V-max .224 55gr sp 1 full unopened box of 100 and 29 in the other box £25 posted SOLD Hornady A-max 6mm .243 105 gr 1 box of 100 (box has been opened but 100 present) £20 posted SOLD Sierra Gameking 22 cal .224 55gr Spitzer boat tail box of 100 (box has been opened but 100 present) £15 posted SOLD Right this lot are unboxed (loose in bags) and from unknown makes. I've tried measuring with cheap calipers and weighing but I don't have accurate weighing scales so these are a lot cheaper. So please when you receive these double check the size and weight, i've double checked myself but for peace of mind do it yourself as well as these are ROUGH measurments with a £10 set of calipers from screwfix, though theyve been pretty accurate on the boxes above. 30 x .257 (measured 256.5) 8 gram (roughly) £13 posted 38 x .243 (measured) 3 different types here, look old and not suitable for hunting due to heads don't look sweet. Cba weighing so going cheap to be used for practise or 'plinking' £8 posted 60 x ballistic tip (orange) .223 (measured) 3 gram (roughly) £13 POSTED SOLD 45 x ballistic tip (blue) ( I believe these are more nosler bt varmints from above) .256 measured so guessing these are .257? weight 5.5g (roughly) £15 posted Deals All the .257 for £80 posted (275no) All the .223 for £45 posted (260no) SOLD By all means if you buy more than 1 lot, ill combine postage and knock off the £3 for each lot until you reach the 2kg posting limit. But for instance the 2 boxes of nosler weigh in at 1.3kg. Payment by bacs preferred but will do PayPal as well. Thanks for looking.
  16. And the winner was on air snorting cocaine off the table. https://twitter.com/i/status/1396223821493985281
  17. They are ****. Spend a extra 20 and get a cheap 3mm alder if you want something basic that doesn't flush out everytime you move
  18. For a split second there I thought he was on some sandy beach in the med
  19. I would offer even tho I'm about 15 odd mile away, but I'm working 6 days a week until late most nights. Unless it's a private sell that I could collect after 6pm or on a sunday I can't really help sorry
  20. Because daystate are **** 😅
  21. I've the xp which is the other remington. Awesome springer for the money once fettled. Tbt kit, polish ends ect ect Anyway I don't know if they have the same barrels, but mine hates accupel, it's flavour of choice is jsb exact rs. Sub inch groups at 25yards. But I had to bed that gun in, I've never had a springer that needed so many pellets through it to settle the barrel in. Must of been a tin of 500. I've never heard of good things of using nv on a springer either Oh mines . 22
  22. Well I took a trip to the shop, literally not been in there for 12 months, bought the gloves and the hoody as xl was sold out online. Well impressed with the hoody, I'll wear it a few times, and when it's wrecked i will wear it for fishing then 👍
  23. I had ich on my clown loach years ago. I messed up the temp and it stressed them, along with the disease and I lost them. Guessing it came in from pets at home when the misses and son bought some new tetras. Lots of £s gone. The treatment is a pain, many many water cycles to cure, and if I was you, quite honestly I'd get rid of the gravel if your starting again (if you've lost everything) as I wouldn't risk it. Or, and its a ball ache, get a big pan and boil the hell out of the gravel. I done that a few times when doing a deep clean.
  24. Well I gave £2. Wouldn't normally I'll admit, but the boy wants a red nose for school so he's got one.
  25. Well just received it It's bloody massive 😂 That will hold 500 carts easy, though you wouldn't pick it up
