  1. Thanks ditchman, will give that a try tomorrow.
  2. I recently acquired a huglu 20b semi auto. Practically brand new. Was fine when first went out at the pigeons, no problems at all, yesterday I was out again and when I loaded one in the chamber and two in the mag it would miss-fire. Manually extract the shell and allow the second shell to automatically cycle the next round in and again miss-fire then do the same and the third will go off. Tried this a few times and same story. So I started just loading one shell in at a time and was firing fine. Stripped it down and put back together and still the same problem. When there’s cartridges in the magazine for some reason the pin isn’t striking the cartridge enough. Anybody got any ideas what could be the problem?
  3. I havcan just acquired a Huğlu excellence magnum 920g but can’t find a link online for a manual anywhere, can anyone point me in the right direction? Cheers.
  4. I had the chance to enjoy a day at this shoot on the last day last season there as a guest and can vouch for a superb day, very frendily syndicate and very well run, the birds flew great, one of the birds shot on the last drive was the biggest I’ve ever seen! Thanks again Jon and Freddie.

  11. Hi folks, Just done my snare course (Scotland) and for the part of having to log your snares, does anybody know where to buy a snare log book? Only one online I can see is via SGA and although looks ok was wondering what else was available? Cheers.
  12. No probs bud, I just use a old £10 Parker hale mod on mine, been on it since my grandpa bought it 40 odd years ago and has never been cleaned and still does the job with subs.
  13. Off subject a little bit but I too own a Mauser 107, cracking little rifle and superbly accurate. If you were ever looking for a magazine replacement which I have been looking for a spare for a good 10 years, I recently found out the older Voere 2107/8 is basically the same rifle and the magazines are identical and there are loads of brand new magazines online in 5,8, 10 and 15 shot. Hope this helps. T.
