  2. Brunel Uni RC have interest from over 250 students in shooting from their freshers fair! after 2 years of no activity thats a fantastic result. Over the last 2-3 years the kit has denuded, lost, broken & they are missing some bits - can anyone help? - cheap or donations or bits to fix or ID where to get them cheap etc : 20 guns socks (a bulk order) - all the rifles had surface rust after 2y in store. Quick detach sling loops (42mm) for those ESE hand stops - 4 off. ESE slings or similar. Gloves - any. Bipods - the simple black ones that lock in the rail, not fold up. Scops stands or bits of them to make ones that work....... 22 cleaning kit - jags, points, brushes & patches. Spare parts for Rhom twinmaster pneumatic air pistols. Older stroke pneumatic air rifles or 177 break back air rifles. (student proof ones). A Walther hand stop sling loop. - famously different from all the rest! Simple adjustable rear sight irises for their competition guns. Odd 22 ammo - leftovers, ends of box/batch, abandoned etc for freshers to shoot off. Can anyone help? if so please message me or contact me I'm on FB, shooting forums etc. There are other Uni clubs & possibly near you - after 2 years of generating no shooters their current club members were 1st years when lockdown prevented them from learning to shoot! they need help to survive & regroup - if you can spare time coaching, helping, supervising, fixing kit then they need it & now especially this year. In the last 4 years we lost - Reading, Glasgow, Coventry & Uni London uni shooting clubs. Others are struggling to reestablish so if you love this sport now is the time to help!

    Scope and Stand

    If you're looking for affordable scopes for juniors starting out I'd suggest looking at the more budget Opticron ranges. Perfectly adequate for indoor smallbore ranges.

    Wanted: 7.62 Target Rifle

    I have a Paramount available at £1400, complete with sights, quality gunslip, 3 cleaning rods and full set of cleaning kit, additional adjustable-height foresight and various irises, spares and accessories; the stock has been freshly refinished. The rifle belonged to a retiring club member who was a Royal Marine; when I received it I was able to remove practically no carbon or copper from the barrel whatsoever - it was probably the cleanest barrel I'd ever seen, so I'm sure it has been very well looked-after. The barrel was recently inspected by a well-known TR gunsmith. I'd describe it as 'middle-aged'. The bore was in reasonable condition with no sign of any significant break-up of the lands that might suggest it's close to the end of its useful life, but it was also clear that more of its life is behind it than lies ahead. I've always used second-hand rifles myself, at up-to Commonwealth Games level, and I only feel that a rifle is truly mine once it's had a new barrel; your budget more than accommodates the price of a brand new barrel when the need arises, but that need does not appear to be imminent. The rifle is being sold by a national fullbore rifle association. The rifle is currently located at Bisley and I can meet you there at any time to view (complete with a borescope). I'll take some photos and post a for sale listing, hopefully later today.

  5. Last I heard, both David Crispin at Hut60 and John Binder-Swash had second hand Barnard Ps they were selling on behalf of someone else. Both needed new barrels, so would set you back £2500 at most, but were full “packages” otherwise.

    1807 stock

    If you already have stock, could anyone at help club fit hardware? There is a chap making copies of the old Anschutz 1413-1813 adjustable gubbins: https://www.warrenedwards.co.uk/shop.php?cat=3 Might be cheaper than a complete new stock. And it will be easier to use than the 1807, with it's UIT Standard compliant wedge and screw system.

    And I can strongly recommend David for general gunsmithery..........he's re-barrelled a couple of target rifles for me, and his work is first class. C/pete

  11. Hi, Yep, I was at Hut 60 on Saturday morning. I am bit gutted it hasn't worked out. I hadn't appreciated that the US do not have the weight limit that the NRA have put in place. Not to worry!! Sorry, I am keeping the adaptor as this can itself be adapted to fit my new stock. I shoot an R3 in an XRS stock for small-bore so, am getting another XRS for FB. A friend of mine uses this set up and it works very well. Best wishes.

  12. Thanks sdixon1 and everyone else who replied. I've cut my smallbore budget and I'm now just going for a Barnard build (Mike's rough cost estimate seems pretty reasonable) but until my FAC arrives and I pay for the Barnard, I'm still happy to consider and interested to see what people have.

    Ball for spotting scop

    The Freeland Stand is not a Tucker knock off, it's more convergent evolution (or Tucker knocking-off Freeland). Al(bin) Freeland was in business from the 1930s, a good 30 years before Andrew Tucker. I think he was at least 70, when Tucker started making the X-Ring stand.

    Cheap Butt Plate

    Pippin, Have a look at the Bisley brand plates. There are usually some on eBay for about £20. Those adjust for height and cant. The curvature should be with the 20mm NRA maximum.

  21. As good as new for half the price! I have the following for sale: £280 - HAWKE FRONTIER 30 SF 5-30X50 20x TMX IR - hardly used, no marks or scratches and in original box. RRP/Was bought for £560. £100 - Atlas V8 BT10 Bipod - again hardly used and all in brilliant condition. RRP is £210 ish. Not a Chinese Knock-Off. I'm hoping to invest in a good TR jacket so would be delighted with what I'm asking for. Nonetheless open to sensible offers. Tracked postage can be negotiated (for the bipod) but collection from West Kent for the Scope as I don't want it getting damaged in transit.

    Anschutz Supermatch

    Sorry, I hadn't realised I'd missed the price! OIRO £200, not sure when it was bought, but bought new from Dave Parish a long time ago. Not had a tremendous amount of use, it was my husband's and he basically gave up about 10 years ago as his RA was giving him so much trouble. He retired from National meetings during the really muddy shoot at Lauder, when cars had to be tractored out. It's in good condition as the photos show, the funny antiglare tube was added after he needed an eagle eye.

  26. I have a lot of kit for sale, mainly mine, some of my husband's - he gave 2 years ago. We both shot prone, my husband then did bench rest briefly. There's too much to list individually, 3 rifles FWB 2700, Anschutz mod 54 set up for bench rest, lightweight BSA Mk2 (no sights), 2 spotting scopes, Duguid sight, other sights (not BSA!) including scope for bench rest, various scope stands, Gemini buttplate for FWB, jackets, shooting 'vests', gloves, lots of bits and pieces. PM for photos and more details.

  28. Hi- I am interested in your stock. I assume it has an accessory rail? I can’t see the butt pad very well. Please email me if still available. Thanks Tom Mooney tmooney@hotmail.co.uk

  29. It completely depends on the shooter and how they want to see the target. I could get away with a 32x, but I also want to shoot out to 300m as well, so a 40x will give me that ability.

    7.62 TR.

    Keep an eye on Holts auctions too. I just missed out on an RPA Quadlock on there a year or so ago. It was a sealed bid and it went for £600. Even with a new barrel that works out very cheap. I bid £550 so just missed out. Kicking myself I didn't go a little higher.

    Benchrest Scope

    I was using the Falcon primarily at high mag hence going for the 45. I also have a Sightron 45ED on another rig, that too is shot at 50 and 100m informally. The beauty of the Falcon is that it focuses down to 10m but it is surplus to requirement now.

    The problem is , its not so much the scammers selling on the sales, as them answering the wanted's, as the most recent ones have been, and I think that would be very difficult or impractical to police? it would involve new members being banned from replying to wanted's, or PM'ing, before they have done thread contributions, is that possible or practical? When you sort that, can you stop me being phoned 5 times a day with scamms! Take care and Have fun Robin

  45. Rifle & Pistol Dry Fire Target Light Box. I've been making these during lockdown and they've proved very effective. Homemade dry fire target box. Designed to be used with SCATT or just for home dry fire practice. The box uses a 12v DC LED driver which produces a constant current eliminating light flicker. Targets can be inserted into the back of the box using the small cut out at the top. A stencil is included to print & cut SCATT targets to fit perfectly in the back of the box. A standard sized NSRA 10m Air Rifle & Pistol will also fit. The back of the box has two loop holes to allow fixing to a wall. Box dimensions are 19cm x 19cm x 4cm. Area of visible target is 15.2cm x 15.2cm. No target inserts are included, only the box with power cable and stencil are included. Price £50 Inc p&p.
