  1. That’s a cracking beer. I also quite like the blueberry waffle breakfast stout that Tesco also sells. I tried a Northern Monk peanut butter and jelly porter yesterday for a change but it was very disappointing- thin and watery with no head.
  2. Best recipe I’ve found is: (for 2 glasses) 2 shots espresso or strong black coffee 1 teaspoon cocoa powder 2 tablespoons Camp essence stir the above together in a jug until smooth and pour over glasses filled with crushed ice. Top up with cold milk.
  3. These are a little fuzzy and so won’t be suitable for a formal shoot, but still have a fair bit of life left in them. They are decent quality fully lined tweed. Tagged as a 36 but they come up small, and are 17” flat, so 34” circumference. Lockdown wine and crisps consumption means I won’t be fitting back into these any time soon, so grab a bargain as these weren’t cheap. Price reflects the scruffiness. Measurements are in the photos and as below: Waist (measured flat) 17” outside leg: 28.5” inside leg: 18.5” £20 posted, UK address only. PayPal or transfer preferred.
  4. Ah yes, I’ll send him a message. Fingers crossed
  5. Time for an annual bump - I’m still after a functional breech bolt for an AL-391 (or compatible as per post above) in any condition whatsoever or a cheapo knackered gun suitable for parts if anyone has one or knows of one. Thanks In advance for any pointers 👍
  6. Cheers chaps - makes sense to get it sorted quickly. I’ll make sure I’ve got my masonry bits and drill in the first car load
  7. Hello all, We’re probably going to be moving house in the next couple of months, within the same licencing area. Other than notifying a change of address - what is the protocol for transporting them while there is potentially a lot of upheaval and boxes everywhere? I’m guessing my 3 x guns will have to travel In the boot of my car in motor cases, and send the cabinet in the moving van along with furniture etc. Does the new cabinet have to be installed straight away when arriving at the new place (I may get some grief for doing that instead of helping unpack), or could I keep the guns safely locked away in my boot or hidden in the house until I get chance to install? I’d like to keep costs down so would like to avoid rfd storage if possible.
  8. Thanks for the info, I’ll give that a try on some scrap wood and see how I get on. I’ve read about using fine wet/dry paper with white spirits but I imagine that would take an age to reduce the size of the pad.
  9. I’ve got an ‘Aldi special’ belt sander which always ends up skewing the belt diagonally and chewing it up, so I wouldn’t trust it even to do a half decent job. Is the sanding doable by hand or would that be a horrific amount of work?
  10. It’s got a 15” LOP, but I’ve got arms like a gibbon so the best thing I can do to improve the handling is probably to lengthen the stock a bit. I’m considering adding an orange Silvers pad but wouldn’t want to attempt it myself in case I make a pig’s ear out of it.
  11. Thanks - i’m surprised I haven’t built up a smooth finish to the palms of my hands too with all that friction and rubbing No, getting it done professionally is not worth the extra cost to me. I did have a go myself but slipped a few times on the fore end, hence a couple of missing diamonds if you look closely in the picture above. It will still function so I’ll probably leave it once I’ve built up the oil finish.
  12. Almost two months of oiling and rubbing and oiling and rubbing and oiling and rubbing. Still not quite there yet but it’s looking so much better.
  13. I’m a designer with 20yrs experience, what sort of thing were you after?
