Thanks, no the situation isn't desperate, the in-two-pieces rifle seems to work very well.
I've given up trying to get the insurance claim in just trying to find a replacement.
The rifle is an Anschutz 1913 (or something) with left handed action. i should have mentioned that (oops). (cheers any way patrick, oh and it's a bit rich about the eternal student.....)
Not going to be able to get it before BUSA, but trying to get something organised before next term.
Donald do you have Tricia's number (or email), could you email it to me thanks.

P.s. I think the Woodworking course is a good idea....
