A Savage for an Escort sounds like a great deal!

You're still obliged to have the seller complete Table 2. You want the seller and date of acquisition in table 2 to match your acquisition notification. 

Just to be crystal clear - the Savage (with the correct serial number) already appears on the back of the photo page (page 1) as printed (not written) when the police issued the certificate - there is no transaction date associated with that. It just lists the maker, type, serial, calibre etc.

Well to be fair the Escort was literally like new with all the bits you'd get new (chokes, stock shims etc) so easily worth c£200+ - when I sold the Savage it was similar price so fair swap but I'm happy with the Savage.

He did mention that the Savage feeds fine when parallel to the ground or pointing downwards but sometimes doesnt feed cleanly when in a "high bird" position - has anyone else seen that happen -know how to deal with that issue?

Just bought a new mossberg 590 took it to the clay ground a few times  to get used to it as its my first pumper shoots well so I tried the pigeons today an got 47 👍 my only concern beforehand was the lack of choke !!!

did get the odd strange look at the clay but I’m seriously enjoying this gun

Here's a little update of my pump family with the recent addition of the Mossberg 500. I had one before with the shorter mag tube and sold it as I much prefer the 870 to the Mossberg but no collection would be complete without one. This is a section 2 and I've still to shoot it. Can't wait to get out with it.

Hi everyone. I'm looking for a basic (OK ..... cheap) 20 gauge pump. Does anyone have experience or views on the Hatsan Fieldhunter? I've had Mossbergs in the past and am looking for something a bit different for some pigeon shooting.

Morning Gents,

                           Following the tragic events in Plymouth recently, I so do hope that there is no 'knee-jerk' legislative reaction against pump action firearms such as we saw following the awful murders in Hungerford and Dunblane. a while ago.  I lost rifles as a result of the former and pistols the latter. However it seems that in this case the licencing authority reissued/returned the perpetrator's certificate recently, having withdrawn it for an unknown reason.

Whilst condolences to those affected by this awful event, lets hope that cooler heads prevail legislatively this time.

Yes. I was going to add a comment such as "Enjoy it while you can." Truth to tell pump action shotguns would be an easy "target" to ban (unlike self-loading shotguns) and, indeed, are also banned in France yet though self-loading shotguns also are not banned.

Need to do some fact checking regarding France and the availability of Pumps. 
They are avail both categories of C and B1 if your after some really short barrels etc.

France and some other EU countries are funny on pumps (Austria maybe..?)

usually a harder permit to get than semi-autos for some reason

I’m off to bed, but In essence, your incorrect.

Lived there for almost 12 years and only just given up my Permit. 
If you wish to really know how the systems works then ask and I will elaborate.

Having had Remington 870s all my life, I have acquired a Winchester model 12 in 12 guage.

its a blast from the past with the corn cob shuttle, made in 64, probably a USAAF Import and works a treat.

happy pumpers day all 😊👍🇬🇧

Hi folks.

I am looking to get a replacement magazine spring for my 12g wingmaster 870, is there anywhere that sells these other than Brownells? as these seem to be for extended tubes which I dont have. Just standard crimped magazine tube.

have been searching on google but all are USA sites or is there a standard spring that can be used.

many thanks for any advice

Si

Evening chaps,

 

 I'm looking to change the magazine tube on my Baikal mp 133 (rem 870 clone?) from the crimped 2 shot to one with a higher capacity. I've got the slot on my FAC for it and I've checked with BASC legally it's not a problem but I'm struggling to find a replacement magazine.

If anyone knows anywhere or knows a good place to look it would be appreciated.

 

Cheers!

You can cut springs, alternately you can, if stuck, get one made.  Several places online do custom springs.  You will need to measure coil diameter, thickness etc.  You could always order a couple of coils overlength to play with tension etc.  High tension teflon coated springs are available in the US.

I regretted selling my 1981 870 police wingmaster I had many sleepless nights over it.Around 8 months later I saw one for sale online exactly like mine a 4hr drive away😣.I rang the dealer to confirm the serial number and it was my old gun🙂.

I did the 4hr drive and I and picked it up that’s how much I missed it 😂.Being the police model it’s a very rare model in the uk and the wood on it is the best I’ve seen.

It also has a barrel over 24inch to comply with the law as the original length would of been 20inch.It was on my fac but I recently  had it crimped and put on my sgc it’s definitely a keeper.

Mine is a 1980 Police/Wingmaster model as confirmed by Remington with the serial number, however some kind person has put woodwork on made from a Walnut Crotch apparently. Do you know the difference between the Police model back then compared to a Wingmaster please ?
