  1. Shooting Jacket For 10M Air Rifle

    Hi there, I have a slightly muddy size 54 Gehmann 418 that's going spare http://www.intershoot.co.uk/acatalog/Gehmann-Leather-Jacket-418-370.html It's been used for Field Target and Prone shooting, so it's a bit mucky around the bottom edge and the left elbow pad has signs of wear. The buttons are easily moved about to achieve a good fit. PM me with email address if you'd like a few pics. Cheers Tim

  5. 5.6 Or 5.7Mm Highend For 22Mm Foresight

    Hi, cheers - v. useful to know. Yes, i currently use a 0.3x Eagle Eye with a 4.8mm High End. I would like to try an 0.75x Eagle Eye and corresponding HighEnd: My prescription lens (-6.75) makes things appear a lot smaller than they would if wearing contact lenses. The 0.3x pretty much normalises this, and has helped my scores improve, now i am wondering if a higher magnification may be even more beneficial....... all good fun

  10. 22Mm Foresight Elements - Wanted

    Hi Chris, Yes, i've taken the plunge and ordered up a 4.9 High End for use with bloop tube, hopefully this will be about right. I have a 3.9 for use without the tube and this seems to be ok for me. I think more importantly i need to get some shooting specs sorted. With my normal specs my eye flicks focus way too easily to the diagram. It's ok for a detail or two but i really start to struggle after 20 odd shots. Once I get the specs sorted i should have a better idea as to whether to splash the cash on a Centra Iris. One very appealing feature of the iris is that it has a 2mm ring thickness to help lock the eye's focus on. The max 1.4mm ring thickness of the High Ends seems a touch thin for me.......... this is not a cheap past-time haha!

  15. Hi All, I'm hoping you may be able to help me out. My FEO assures me my FAC will be through the post any day now and I'm itching to get myself kitted out with my own rifle so I can move on from the Club's BSA mk5 (great rifle; doesn't fit me very well). So please, If you've seen a RH Supermatch Rifle for sale on your club's notice board do drop me a PM please. My budget is flexible- I'd be happy with an 1413 (with the later, adjustable cheek piece) or 1613 leaving me with funds for fancy bits and good ammo. However, I'll happily consider spending more on 1813, 1913, FWB2602 or KK200...... Basically, provided it's known to shoot well at 50m, is fully adjustable, and is priced between 350 and 800ish I'd love to hear about it. Great many thanks, Tim PS based in North Oxfordshire, willing to travel upto 2.5hrs

  19. Supermatch Or Xx11 Prone Rifle Found

    Cheers for the pointers Tim. I'll happily extend the search to include xx11 rifles too. If only I could find a way to edit the thread's topic line! T To change your header, In your ad, click on 'edit' then 'full editor' and then you can change the header. As for the ammo, Edge is about £112 per 1,000 (With a bit of discount for 1k) so thats £56 per 500, then £5.60 for a box of 50. Sounds good to me for a nights shooting. Ensure on your Firearm cert application you have authority to possess max 1500 and to purchase max 1,000. At the least. I know FEO try to get you to have less, but as an avid shooter who is attending many shoots, that is a reasonable amount to have. You shouldnt have to spend all your time travelling to buy ammo from your nearest gun dealer who has the type of ammo you require, especially if the dealer is some distance away and difficult to get to. I hope my comments may help. Jonty Super - Edited now, thank you Yes, my FEO agreed to 1250 rounds without fuss and my club usually bulk buys Edge after a few members have batch tested at Eley. They work on the principle that if a batch works well through 2 or 3 Match 54s it's 'likely' to work well through other Match 54s also.... not perfect, but it seems to work ok Comments are always welome T

  21. Supermatch Or Xx11 Prone Rifle Found

    Hi Jonty, I'm shooting prone. At my club we enter 25y, 50m and 100y postal comps. I have dreams and aspirations of one day attending shoulder to shoulder comps. I'm still cutting my teeth at this game and have been happily shooting Eley Club and RWS Club at 25y achieving scores in the region 90-95. I scored my first 97 this week. Whoops and cheers were had aplenty. Most of the guys at my club use Eley Edge quite happily and this is what I'd like to move onto. It's not mega expensive but represents a significant cost increase from RWS Club at 3 squid / 50. I'm 6'1" and skinny. A significant proportion of my height comes from my giraffe like neck and I have sloping shoulders. I tried shooting 10m air rifle for a while and had great difficulty getting the sights upto eye level, even with high sight risers. I had to painfully bend my back and eventually got fed up with the discomfort. Prone seems to suit my physiology much more. Hope that explains a few things :-) Tim
  22. Supermatch Or Xx11 Prone Rifle Found

    Thanks Chaps, All good points and duly noted. My main reason for homing in on the XX13 is because i'm hoping it will fit my non-average body shape more easily. That said, if an XX11 were to come along at a fair price it'll get full consideration. Tim
  23. Supermatch Or Xx11 Prone Rifle Found

    Whilst I agree that it is on the high side, I think prices have gone up (inexplicably) of late, so its not too far off. Yes prices seem exceptionally variable. 1813s in particular - i've seen listings from 550-850!? I'm think i'm starting to err toward an older/cheaper rifle so that i can afford some good ammo for the when the 50m season starts up. T
