    Recently posted 3 items for sale as separate posts without pics initially 

    on item 1 went to post pic and was told 0.29mb max, uploaded dithered pic, now my upload quota for pic 2 is 0.15mb forum appears to have a quota per user rather than quota per post

    You need to 'Google' for a picture resizer and down load it. Most are free. This enables you to select photos and reduce the amount of data in each picture then you can upload the picture to sites and forums. 


    I use one called 'Light Image Resizer' which I like, but it can be difficult to navigate until you get used to it. Im sure other will offer input which may be better.


    (P.S. I am by no means wizard of the computer, but I can knock nails in pretty good.




  2. I am looking to buy a second hand aluminium rifle stock for .22 rifle. Gemini, G&E or similar, or, maybe, what have you.

    Suitable for Anschutz square or round action preferred. 

    If you have something or know someone who has, please contact me by a P.M.





  3. These are finely engineered parts, and should NEVER be tightened up like you would a wheel nut on an E.R.F.


    I must have said it a million times on here, be gentle with bolts whether it be on sights, buttplates or an outside toilet door.


    The excellently spotted item by Batty does include a new clamp and its tiny springs as well as the required bolt.



  4. A cautionary note Parcel2go have a HUGE list of non compensation items.


    If you can get the discounted Parcelforce rates through Paypal (hate to recommend them) you get decent prices on really heavy items and decent compensation coverage.


    And if someone tells you they don't want something sent by a tracked service its probably best to not get involved.



    Quite right.


    There is always someone out there who will say its been sent, without any evidence, and refuse to do the decent thing, but keep your money and instead squirm for months!,


    As the saying goes, 'Some people you can trust, pay others via Paypal'.

  5. We like Parcels2go. Great savings than going direct to Royal mail or other courier companies.


    Ive just had a quote to send a pair of roof bars for a car 1200mm long, to 'anywhere in the world' £10. WOW.


    I sent an plate warming drawer to a guy in Cheshire and took out extra insurance. When it arrived, it looked like someone had stood on it and dented and ruined it. We had photos of before and after and they paid out with no quibble straight away. Highly recommended, provided you get the correct cover.



  6. The old 1" type are regularly on ebay. Bit of pot luck with the sizes though.

    I appreciate they are more expensive, but a variable foresight may be your answer, but you would have to check if they go down to the thin line you are seeking.

  7. I have for sale a Barry Neeson 11" tube (13" total length) This will fit the modern 1913 and 2013 barrels.


    The extention tubes are said to be a great advantage for shooters particularly senior shooters who eyes may not be what they used to be.




    If you have any questions, please drop me a P.M.


  8. Thats unusual. People tend to use the front 4mm raiser to compensate for tubes etc difference in heights. I would have thought there would be a few rear risers being unused, although I beleive you can just get a front raiser now!


    Could I ask why you want to raise the rear?



  9. With all the intensive studying he must be doing, and not checking his emails etc he is sure to graduate with a 'professership' . Or summat.


    I did something like that at Cambridge College.


    Well Cambridge Street College in Batley actually. Lovely place then, seems a hotbed for you know whats now. Drove through yesterday, only thing missing was some black flags. In the paper the other day, the were asking why some many Jihidists come from the area. Dunno myself, can't be because of the lack really good micro breweries!



  10. Squishy had a really nice high quality one with many extra he was trying to sell, dont know if he sold it. I use a lens on my rear sight and preferred my lens to the Duplex, but I know plenty do like them.
