    NOW SOLD, THANKS FOR EVERYONE's INTEREST


  2. How much would you be looking for for the Anschutz rearsight?

     

    Hi Beltherion

     

    At present I am looking to sell as a package, as it makes a good Indoor and Outdoor combination. I do have an extra Duguid L/H sight (number 34), but I personally recommend them for outdoor. If I were to sell the extra Duguid, it would be priced to sell at £135 with a spare perspex upright, 2 extra grommits and 2 different peep holes.

     

    Currently there are two interested people in the package since my post last night, but in the unlikely event that this does not seem attractive to anyone, I will repost the items priced individually.

     

    Thanks for your interest and keep watching this space.

  3. ALL NOW SOLD - THANKS FOR YOUR INTEREST

     

    I have the following items for sale as a group:

    Anschutz 2013L (Left handed s/n 286nnn) Walnut? stock with H&S butt hook,

    Duguid Mk1 L/H rear sight,

    Anschutz 7002 (normal clicks) L/H,

    Foam lined soft zipped case inc cleaning rod

    plus assorted accessory small items.

     

    I had the barrel and action in 2004 when it had about 200 rounds through it. The stock was purchased about 12 months later, at which point I started shooting the rifle. I have shot about 10,000 rounds through it and it shoots well. I have the original Anshutz booklet and electronic manuals. Until recently was serviced at Bisley every 2 years.

     

    Looking for £1250 for the lot. Proceeds will part-pay for a Clay Pigeon Trap gun!

  4. Hi Sink

    The 16 series ran from serial numbers 143655X to 182155X and from 1974 to 1979 (although the date letters on mine correspond to 1980), and is signified by the letter X at the end of the serial number. As the name suggests, it came between the 14 and 18 series, with a new trigger allegedly better than the 14.

     

    You will note that the bolt has a slot underneath, exposing the firing pin, another feature of the 16 series.

     

    As noted in 'Ways of The Rifle' these rifles are still sought after and many are still in use today (for those of us who can't afford Bleikers). I won the British Short Range with my 1607 in 2006, and it is still going strong, I just wish I was.

     

    Just a couple of years ago, Dave Phelps won the Roberts (more than once) with his 1613, although I believe he now uses a 1913.

     

    Hope this helps

     

    Regards

    Now interestingly, my serial number 181447X had the groove, but not the exposed firing pin. Being a left-handed 1810L may have something to do with it. Maybe the serial number sequence was not contiguous.

  5. Here's the advice of a right handed shooter that went left handed after an eye injury:

     

    It takes about 4 weeks to convert, depending on your skill level and amount of practice!

     

    Offset sights introduce too many variables, as do periscopes.

  6. It seems to me that the new post evaluation has been changed to use the last login time and not whatever was being used before. Whenever I logout now, I lose all the messages on the unread messages list, that were posted before my new login date/time.

     

    Regards


  7. Just to confirm the requirement has been satisfied and transaction complete today. I look forward to hearing the user's learning and achievements with the L/H rifle.

     

    Thanks Simon for your facilitation. I'll email you personally.

     

    Best wishes,
