    RobinC got a reaction from jonty in Custom Butt Plate Part Ex James Huckles Sold   
    Its a "Jung" butt plate which Walther get a local engineer to make, they also made one for my wife, the top mount and wing is missing on that one pictured, if any wants it I can furnish pictures and dimensions of the bits that are missing, or I have a phone number for "Ingeniurburo Jung"
     
    And yes they are ideal for shorties!

    I have several of them, I had gone over entirely to using them on all our rifles and all our sights, both my wife and I. I really like them, BUT, they are very (I mean VERY) sensitive to light to set up correctly, its not just a matter of putting it on and adjusting to centre, the issue is about getting the correct size element, I also have a variable one which I used last. The principle is about judging the gap around the outside of the element and in a range with constant light such as an indoor range (or a good continental ISSF range) they are great, in any range with varying light (any UK out door range) they can need a change of element, and iris opening, or in some cases the light change is such that you can not get a gap at all and end up taking the Duplex off.
     
    Shooting to NSRA rules open shoots, you can't touch the rifle until the start of the detail so have no time to set the Duplex up to the light, if its right the light changes and you are stuffed, I even found that the variable element did not have enough varaiance to cope with some changes. Its not just range light, its inside light, outside light, and the contrast between them produces different issues, some you can adjust with rear iris size, some not.
     
    My conclusion was, great, as long as you always shoot on the same range in the same light conditions, or you shoot to ISSF timings and have time to set up at each shoot and then the light stays the same! Fabulous when shooting in constant light conditions, a nightmare when not!
     
    My wife first stopped using hers due to having problems in some open shoots with light changes and found it a complication she did not want, I persevered for a year but now I have followed suit and stopped using them, I really like them, and if we only shot on nice constant light ranges I'd still use them.
     
    I have a couple I'd sell, (both new unused) but you need to know the element size that suits you and that is dependent on several factors, your vision, iris opening, eye relief, light, etc, its difficult to advise as what suits me does not suit you.
     
    PS. You will need a sight with a MEC lenshood to fit one.

    RobinC got a reaction from RobertBeard in Shooting Glasses   
    We were coaching a school team with shooters who required glasses so I was looking for a cheap source of frames. I found the emails, from when I ordered from Bob last year, I got two pairs including postage which was $130 (that's under £100 for two pairs posted from the States!) They do look very simple but they sit near enough perfectly, its quite a clever layout, I use a "reading" lens in the left eye so I can see sights, screens, etc, and have a strip of masking tape on it as a blinder.
    I took to the Junkers (also used by Malcolm Cooper) instantly after trying all the big makes, and these Jones ones are as good at a fifth of the price, they look flimsy but they are not, as well as .22 I shoot 7.62 NRA and 6 mmBR at 300 mts and I have a tendency to climb onto the sights and these not only take it but protect as well!
    If you email Bob, he can do Paypal, I highly recommend these glasses and Bob is a very helpfull guy, as I did not do PayPal I sent him cash, he sent the frames before my payment would have reached him, which got here inside a week.
    I got mine "glassed up by Stephen Hing at Shefford.

    Best bet, visit with the rifle and sight to Fultons, they have drawers of old stuff and will probably find some thing to fit or have another sight that will fit.
     
     
    PS Hi Alan, hope you are well.

    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.

    RobinC got a reaction from roythefish in Walther Sight   
    Thanks
    Yes I had thought of that, but I was hoping to pick up a s/h one cheaper than paying 199Eu for a new one, and a mostly in the ope that some one who had a Match one would swop it for the Comp one.
    The Comp one is mint but they are taller than the match and is not suited to our standing Zero checking technique.

    I need a Walther Match sight as fitted to the basic LG300 air rifles, I can swop a mint Walther Competition sight (the type with the elevation scale) as fitted to the KK300 or buy.
