  1. Some clown in my house was admiring the lock up engineering of his new MK38. Turned the gun over to absorb the lovely clunk and fitment of the action, closed the action and caught the web of skin between his thumb and index finger into the action removing a fair chunk which has not grown back.
  2. Sir, you are clearly a mathematician of the very highest order. I shall brief Mrs Taileron on this formula which must be adhered to.
  3. Sat down last night and counted up how many I have had since getting my ticket in 96, WOW.....I’m ashamed of myself. If Mrs Taileron knew how much cash I have parted with. Absolutely, positively not going to buy any more😳
  4. I have been exactly the same over the years, every one I purchased was “definitely a keeper” The problem was I did just that and kept them. Realised in lockdown that I have a load of money tied up in guns that I was unable to use. I have now parted with all but 4. The new “keepers” are my Yildiz .410 (daughter) Yildiz 20g (wife) MK38+MK70 (me). If I was brave enough to work out how much cash I have parted with over the years I suspect the remaining few hairs on my head will immediately fall out.
  5. After buying my little one a .410 recently, I got the itch and had to have one just for a bit of fun. I managed to narrow the field down to a Yildiz, which my little girl has and a bettinsoli evo. A sliver pigeon would be the ideal gun but I just can’t justify the expense for a bit of fun. Tracked down an evo at Croxton service station just outside ecceshall, part of MJR Militaria, I dealt with Duncan who was a nice bloke, we negotiated a discount for cash on a brand new gun and away I went. Mistake No.1, should have bought a yildiz, the Evo had an awful trigger which after 25 shots gave up co
  6. Quite a rare beast in GR6, I bet the wood is lovely. I’m going to retire in a couple of years and have promised myself a nice GR5/6 as a gift to myself.
  7. Same here buddy. I have a 32” MK38 with a trap fore end, that is muzzle heavy, but I find it fantastic for DTL. My MK70 is a 28”, I whacked a pair of 1/2 & 3/4 Teague Extended Chokes it it, the balance is spot on, exactly on the hinge. Absolutely love it.
  8. No problem mate, they usually crack behind the grip and can be repaired very successfully so have keen eyes. If it’s an Invector gun, it’s old, invector plus is 90,s tech
  9. I have a grade 1 MK70, low in the comb, very flat shooting, absolutely excellent gun. GR5 have a long documented history of cracked stocks. GR 3 is the best overall option but a good one holds a premium price. They are really rock solidly built, look out for the bottom hinge pin being flattened on the lower side (heavily used), sloppy trigger or cracked heel plate. All can be sorted but obviously it needs to be reflected in the price. A good friend has owned one for 32 years and it’s never missed a beat, he is a keeper and has really abused his gun. Best of luck buddy👍
  10. Breiley extended bolt handle and 4 beretta victory Extended Chokes to fit Affinity. Case and key also. I have used them in my gun for about 12 months, selling as I have parted with my Affinity (with deep regret). Sizes Cyl, IC, M, IM. £60 for the lot, plus postage. Absolute bargain as the bolt handle alone cost £45.
  11. Wow, what a lovely comment to make about something that has a personal meaning to the individual.
  12. Thanks for the responses, I had not heard of Phillips cleaner so have ordered some.👍
  13. It’s lead and wad fouling.
