#35556 Member's "reputation"

Posted by neil on 09 September 2009 - 07:24 PM

As some of you may or may not have noticed, one of the newer features in the forum is the ability to promote/demote a user's reputation by click on the little green + or red - icons (reputation.png ) at the bottom right hand corner of a post.

I noticed that members in some groups were able to use the feature and others not. All shooting members should now be able to use this feature, if not then please let me know.

i wounder what the bank manager would say if you approached them for a loan on a rifle>>?

When I bought my first "proper" rifle I asked for a bank loan. The cashier wasn't sure but said they would ask the bank manager. He chatted to me about the sport and was astonished in that I was needing about £600 for a rifle (I was also wanting a jacket and scope too...). He authorised the loan and insisted that he have a look at the rifle once I had bought it. Once I got it from Tom Colvin I had the fun of taking it into the bank and asking for the Manager... :D He became a member of the club and shot for a number of years.

#56694 .22 Rifle Ammo Haul

Posted by jamesgutteridge on 12 May 2016 - 11:31 PM

Honestly mate, if you're planning on doing some proper training you're better picking an ammo your rifle likes and sticking with it rather than mixing and matching with different batches and brands.

Again, why do you think "no scammers" would stop untrustworthy and dishonest people? It just winds people up and it doesn't achieve anything.

#52870 Anschutz Smallbore Target Rifle For Sale

Posted by tim s on 26 November 2014 - 10:34 AM

I don't think that quite fair, it was only the stock that was mis-labelled.  The barrel/action has been described as a Match 54 from the start, rather than as an 1813 or 1913.  To be honest, other than the matter of the foresight mount, a 1613 isn't mechanically very different form a new 1913.  Yes,  a 1613 needs a specific firing pin and spring , but the trigger is functionally identical to later models. 


Even experienced shooters can find it hard to identify the age of a rifle.  See here: http://forum.stirton...=1613#entry9280

#52336 Anschutz 1813 Bedding Screws

Posted by 44mag on 03 October 2014 - 07:31 PM

Get the exact length or your bolt may not work properly but you can simply hacksaw & grind to the right length on a bench or angle grinder.
The screws are M6 x0.75 pitch & can be bought as Socket head stainless for a fraction of the price charged by some firearms suppliers.
Google will turn them up............ quid posted each?

If you have found them on google for a quid each please point me in that direction....

#47962 Anschutz Super Match 54

Posted by RobStubbs on 08 June 2013 - 08:58 PM

Thanks to all.....but does anyone want to Buy??
Open to offers....

I appreciate and understand your comments Rutty. Again, sorry I wasnt trying to offend anybody, and at no point did I express that I knew anything Jonty... It probably wasnt my place to comment, but it seemed that the original poster was being polite and repeatedly trying to bring his Sale thread back on track, and my comments have inadvertently made the situation worse, again sorry I'll keep my gob shut in future.

I totally agree with your previous sentiments. As far as I'm concerned this should just be to buy and sell items, not to discuss their merit or provide a history lesson, however interesting that may be. That's why there are other specific forums here. There is a post pinned at the top of the for sales section detailing what it's for.

#41331 Rating V Reputation?

Posted by RobertBeard on 12 July 2011 - 06:20 AM

I think that the User rating is just based on the number of posts that you make whereas Reputation depends on your peers assessing your posts and marking them up or down by using the rating buttons in the bottom right hand corner of each post. So if someone posts some really useful tip then you can mark the post up and I guess that then features in your reputation.

#58683 Upgrading The Forum

Posted by PaulN on 04 July 2017 - 04:20 PM

Not really in to  the facetubetwitterers type social media here!


I have always appreciated the level of sensible comment and the considered opinions that members spend a deal of time thinking about before posting. Therefore, I would add my vote to the side that is for keeping things pretty much as they are. I would also second 10 Dots in thanking Neil for keeping the forum up and running.

#57294 Spotting Scope

Posted by nicklock on 23 September 2016 - 08:52 AM

I use one of those Greenkat/Opticron angled eyepiece scopes, with a 22x eyepiece in it. It's almost 20 years old now, and as I haven't abused it it's still clear at 100 yards to the point where I can call "just out" in most light conditions...


They're still comparably cheap, so for £600 I would expect you to be able to get something like this.

#52167 1813 Cheek Piece

Posted by RobertBeard on 13 September 2014 - 09:45 PM

I quite often see posts where someone is looking for older Anschutz spare parts.


I would always suggest that a phone call to Arthur Harvey at Budleigh Farm would be worth the effort.


He has been at Budleigh Farm for about 30 years and an Anschutz dealer for that time although I would say that he is more likely to be able to help with wooden stocks than aluminium.  He used to be a regular visitor to the factory at Ulm selecting rifles, barrels and parts and Dieter Anschutz is a personal friend.


His workshop is a bit like Fultons with loads of bits and pieces so if you are stuck for something give him a call.

#49918 Nuts!

Posted by jonty on 02 February 2014 - 08:15 PM

The good book sayeth, 'Man cannot live by bread alone, he needs his nuts'.


When someone states, 'His life is hanging by a thread' I would ask, 'M5 or 2BA?'


When I was studying engineering at Cambridge, I always knew my learnings would become of use.


When I say Cambridge, Cambridge Street, Batley actually, Dewsbury and Batley Technical and Art College, but on a clear day you could see Cleckheaton.
