  1. I'm Looking For ....

    For books, look on AbeBooks, frequently cheaper to buy there than on Ebay. Rutty

  3. Bsa Century Match

    I am sure that you will enjoy the Century bilbo. I bought one years ago for my sons to start shooting, it served the purpose admirably and is still AFAIK doing the same job as a beginners rifle in the club I was then a member of. It was well made and had a very good trigger and barrel. I am not sure that I would have liked to lug around the fields all day, as it was a bit on the heavy side for a sporter, especially if you mounted a scope on it. I always wonder "what might have been", if BSA had developed the Century with a better action and stock. Could they have given the Germans a run for their money? With a scope and magazine, could be usable for LSR (can't remember the weight limit). Rutty

Funk & Wagnalls, New York, 1953 HB, DJ faded spine and some edge tearing, Condition is "Good+" Price £45.00 Quite a rare book, of interest to the serious handloader/collector.

  5. Left Handed Air Rifle

    Ina, Unless she is absolutely set on a true LH rifle could I suggest that she considers one of the universals that are available. She would probably have to buy new, but the fact that it could be used by a right handed shooter could well be an advantage if she came to dispose of it later. The universal I have in mind is the same one that the blind shooters in our club use. I can obtain make/model details if you want. Rutty

  8. 300 Bar Diving Cylinder

    I was lead to believe that if the cylinder valve was capable of accepting a diving regulator then they would only give you a 3 year cert. You can purchase "surface valves" which are for "surface use only". The problem I have encountered is that dive shops; quite understandably; don't know anything about surface use. If anyone can provide chapter and verse on this one I would be grateful. Rutty

  13. Realtree Jackets/hw77k For Sale.

    Camouflage Targets Not as unlikely as you seem to think! The following is taken from "The Citizen Rifleman" by E.J.D. Newitt, published in 1906. Newitt was one of the early secretaries of the Society of Miniature Rifle Clubs (SMRC) and the secretary of Southfields Rifle Club: page 95. "The society's standard Intermediate targets are of the same dimensions as the rudimentary targets, with measuring rings of the same diameter, but are printed on grass-green card and the object aimed at is a representation to scale of the head and shoulders of a khaki-clad soldier in the prone position as he would appear at 500 yards' distance" page 96. The society's standard advanced targets are intended for collective team firing against a time limit. Six khaki heads and shoulders to scale as previuosly described are unevenly printed on grass-green paper, oblong in shape; no scoring rings are used, hits on the figures only count." It is also interesting to note that in those days competitions were commonly "5 shots standing and 5 prone" as well as shooting at both moving and disappearing targets. They also routinely shot smallbore rifles at 200 yds. Rutty
  14. Vickers Martini

    mithrandir Vickers Rifles are of considerable interest to collectors, being much less common than BSA of similar age. They were considered to be of better quality than BSA. This was reflected in the price, in 1937 the BSA range started at £4-17/6 and went up to £9-0. Vickers prices were from £8-10/- to £14-10/- Please PM me and we can exchange email addresses to have a discussion. Rgds Rutty
