  1. I have tried multiple different ways and multiple types of cleaners to remove the lead fowling which seems to be a problem on my Miroku’s. Some were marginally better than others but it was still a problem. I stumbled upon a Hoppes Tornado Brush, revelation. It removes all fouling in literally under a minute with no need for spraying/soaking for 30 mins then scrubbing the bores. The thread is American and won’t fit English threads so I bought some cheapo American thread brushes and rods off flea bay. Best £7.99 I have spent in a while.
  2. Spoke to my RFD on Friday, the expected delivery date was a tad…..optimistic. Looking like the end of November now at the earliest.
  3. Used Stainless steel invector plus chokes. Cy, 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 plus case. Over £200 new. £110 posted, absolute bargain. Pm for details
  4. The most unreliable car I ever had cost me the most money, 75k. This was pre divorce, when I had lots of cash on the hip. Now I drive a 13k special which has not put a foot wrong. The most unreliable air rifle I ever owned cost the most and the same goes for watches I have owned. My 3k Bremont is +2 second per week, my Daytona was +2 mins per week. I have learned over the years that apart from more VAT spent and looks, more money does not genuinely mean more reliable.
  5. Teague Invector Plus stainless steel extended chokes. Brand New never used as I have just upgraded to Teague Titanium. £60 for the pair (£56 each new from Teague) or £35 separate. Collection welcome from Shropshire or I will post recorded, signed for delivery for £3.50 Pm for details Cheers
  6. Will do, I have paid my deposit and he has informed me it will hopefully be available for collection the end of this month. I will post a few images once it’s in my hands.
  7. Thanks, my RFD is saying between £1100-£1200 at the moment as he hasn’t been given the exact prices. He took 4 pre orders today. I’m going to put a red dot on it, unsure of which at the moment. Already have the shaved head due to baldness and the military gear as I’m in the military, not sure how to attach the plastic but to the back of me head though for action man’s evil eyes. Might use some gorilla glue, what’s the worst that could happen???
  8. Just put my deposit down today on one of these beauties.
  9. Does anyone know when the shooting is scheduled to happen at the Olympics? The BBC IPlayer has nothing. Cheers
  10. It is, it’s as simple as that. I have put some 42g through mine that I was given as a bit of fun, apart from some serious recoil and dust where the clays were, no effects on the gun whatsoever. I have mentioned in another thread that my friend, who is a serious shooter, has put 500,000 through his. Some minor work ( bottom pin and top lever spring) and it’s still going strong. My other pal has one of the very first MK38’s, his has had a real battering, it’s used for rough etc and thrown in the back of a landy. It’s never been split and has not missed a beat in over 20+ years as it’s like a magic wand in his hands, he rarely misses. The MK60 is lead shot only, but that’s not to say it can’t handle steel.
  11. Teague invector plus extended chokes. Used condition. 1/4 & 1/2 Browning/Miroku. Selling as I’m upgrading to Teague Titanium. £56 each new, £40 for the pair or £25 individual. Collection welcome from Shropshire or £3.50 to post. Cheers
  12. Yes they do, unfortunately the same cannot be said for the bloke operating them, he either hits most or misses most😃
  13. Both GR1 wood. Huge difference in appearance.
  14. No problem at all, glad it helped. You may find that the BWM stand will have some fantastic specimens on display, might be worth an early doors visit, once you have had a blast see if you can pick a nice one up. Best of luck👍
  15. Yes, have to agree with this and depending on which gun you shoulder they all vary. People often say the MK70 is far too flat shooting as the comb is very low, but TBH I find it spot on for walked up.
  16. I have a 32” Mk38 and a 28” MK70, both are GR1, the 38 is my clay gun and the 70 is for rough/walked up. A great deal of people will say the 38 is essentially the same as a 525, I have to disagree with this for how they fitted ME. I was fortunate to be able to try them both back to back and I could hit 50% with a 525 with a nice bit of cheek slap, rising to 85% with the 38 on the same birds, so please try them both. As for the wood, I have several friends who shoot 38’s and only one has had a broken stock, that was a grade 5, but he was insured. Miroku stocks in Grade 1 have a huge variety, some horrible fence posts, some more like GR3 and believe it or not they ALL feel different in the hands. I shopped around for both of mine and purchased the best GR1’s I could find which felt the best in the shoulder, I managed to find my 38 which was a special order from Miroku and came with a trap forend, which is lovely, I have now purchased another for my 70. I’m not at all bothered by the cardboard box it comes in because that just goes up the loft. The 1 downside is the recoil pad, rock hard rubber, not the nice one on the 525, so that is a consideration for you. The wood on my 70 is that nice I have recently had it London finished and you would honestly believe it to be GR3+. One of my friends has a 38, he is a very good shot who is sponsored by a cartridge company, his 38 has had 500,000 through it and has only ever had 2 bottom pins and 1 top lever spring in a lot of years shooting. The 38 in 32” is quite barrel heavy, more than a 525 because of the solid mid rib, I have balanced mine with the aid of Teague titanium and some weights in the stock, it’s now perfect on the hinge pin and I won’t ever be selling it. For some reason Miroku barrels get heavy leading after a 150 bird shoot, not sure why, so get yourself a tornado brush which quickly removes leading/plastic marks. Hope that helps, best of luck with the purchase.
  17. ^^^^This….But make sure it fits you as a lot of semis are quite short LOP. I bought the extra thick pad of GMK to get my affinity long enough.
