    Help please

    Rats Legs, I cant tell you about a spring length but I is indeed a Scottish made Milbro / Diana. I have exactly the same rifle purchased back in 1972, still using the same spring. About1974 the piston needed a new leather seal and the local iron mongers broke it and replaced the whole piston, I found it to be relatively low powered and to be honest after shooting a smaller .177 until I got it (the Model 77) I found judging the loopy trajectory difficult and probably continued to shoot my .177 s much as I ever did? That said I enjoyed it at the time and still have it after all these years! I think Chambers may have some spares for them. https://www.gunspares.co.uk/ Good luck!
  3. I know of Red Flag but hadn't heard of "Gren Flag" what is that?
  4. My Mrs and I are "opposites" in many ways, She was a vegetarian when I first met her (and mostly still is but eats a little fish from time to time on the advice of her Dr these days). When we first hooked up I did a couple of our early Sunday lunches, so I would have been eating a roast + veggies and I'm being complimented on the roast potatoes. Well they should be good I say, they've been cooked to Delia Smiths recipe - I'm asked about and explain select the right type of potatoes (Maris Pipers) part boil them and then roast in the goose fat? I said the parsnips are much the same. Goose Fat! Goose Fat? I haven't eaten animal products in over 20 years!!!! - yes you have you had the same two weeks ago? Light Blue Touch paper stand well back! Still I got my own back after all the verbal abuse. Later on its Ice Cream Time - I tell her you cant touch that - gelatine - an animal product - she reached for a bar of chocolate - sorry you cant touch that - it contains "rennet" an animal product.
  5. JABB, This might be of some help you: https://www.coriniumrange.com/ Never been there but people I shot alongside at Bisley were positive about it - anyway hope this helps
  6. Geco produce some very good ammo especially for the price point. some time ago, They changed what was Geco .22 in red/black boxes and I think this was a marketing ploy they seem to have altered the loading in Geco which used to be fine and very reliable in .22 semi-autos. All of a sudden it was rubbish reliability and the velocity had lowered, fine in a bolt gun or single shot but not in an auto? Atmore or less the same time they introduced the Geco semi auto, which has slightly higher muzzle velocity. I don't actually like the semi auto eco much too much like a lot of the cheap bulk pack American ammo. I still use Geco plain black and red box -will not reliably cycle a semi auto but fine in a bolt rifle for a semi I prefer SK or RWS
  7. Put this on an anvil/vice or something very solid and hit the end of it with a hammer, it will "bruise" the pin, this will create friction when put it in place this will then hold tight. Or get another pin.

    You sound like you come from close family and I send my condolences, "Mum's" are the hub of any family and set the tone and generally take care of pretty much most things. I didn't know how we would cope without her when I lost my mum, but on the day of the funeral, I felt at peace knowing full well that she would not want any fuss and would really want us all to get on with our lives. I went from being a blubbering wreck to getting by! My Uncle who was a pilot and flew spitfires I never met, but he sounded like an amazing character - died very young from a heart attack my mum used to hold up chocolate bars sideways on and he would shoot them cutting them in half (with an air rifle). They had been very close and I imagined as I looked skywards what, a re-union must be taking place (all mums siblings died before she did as she was the baby of the family), and after that I felt somewhat better as all the sadness and heartache seemed to be parked somewhere and although I miss her immensely, those thoughts and genuine belief that she would not wish any of us upset made me feel a whole lot better and able to cope with the worst thing ever! I hope sharing this helps you because I REALLY do understand that Mums are totally priceless!

  10. I know you are thinking Henry Rifle but what these guys meant is one of these: https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/home-appliances/floorcare/vacuum-cleaners/numatic-henry-hvr160-cylinder-vacuum-cleaner-red-10175294-pdt.html?istCompanyId=bec25c7e-cbcd-460d-81d5-a25372d2e3d7&istFeedId=4d7eb93e-055f-499d-8ee5-1cdcc50d67d1&istItemId=wwwmripai&istBid=tztx&srcid=198&cmpid=ppc~gg~0110+(PLA)+SDA+FLOORCARE+-+Brand+Numatic~0110+Floorcare+-+Brand+Numatic~Exact&mctag=gg_goog_7904&kwid=MICROSOFT&device=c&ds_kids=92700032304288826&tgtid=0110+(PLA)+SDA+FLOORCARE+-+Brand+Numatic&msclkid=5ed72b22b3b215a5d732761cb13c8f71&gclid=CPCrsJi32OMCFQkQGwodp2cLjA&gclsrc=ds
  11. Hi Chris, I'm already a fan of RWS ammo. Is this Fenland Rural Sports? Also have they commented on what sort of prices they will be at? You comment that, "The Normsa case`s are RWS, even with RWS logo stamped into them" If the delivery hadn't come in yet - does this mean you have already had some and if so which cal, what are you putting it through and how did it shoot?
  12. Guys, have any of you seen Norma Rimfire Ammo for sale here in the UK? http://bulletin.accurateshooter.com/...-rimfire-ammo/ From the read of the article thy are also doing .22LR anyone seen bought or shot any .22LR or .17HMR?
  13. This is what got the authorities all hot and bothered about shotgun lengths and made a 40" minimum when drafting revised legislation post Hungerford A Franchi SPAS (Special Purpose Automatic Shotgun) with folding stock £325 back in the day and available on SGC that looked like a post card with no photo
  14. Basically to bring a firearm (including a shotgun)into the UK you would need: A sponsor in the UK Demonstration that you have somewhere safe to keep it (a safe) whilst not in use. Somewhere suitable and a legitimate use for the firearm I think the fee is £20?
