  3. 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!

  5. Cheers @Raven, nothing listed on the site, only the usual range. TBH I haven't even finalised the action that I am going to purchase. Waiting for my FAC to go through, so using an old club Match 54 at the moment, and popping a BR wedge and scope on at the start of each session. Think I have been spoilt by the trigger on my Anschutz 9015 air rifle, so gravitating towards a KK500. I was looking through old posts learn as much as I can.

  10. New stock hasn’t arrived yet, I think it has either only just been printed or maybe still is in the works. No news of when we can get it yet, but once we get new stock it will appear on the website and we will put out some info via the usual social media channels.

  14. Its not a Dolphin I'm familiar with if it is, I think its an HPS, which is made by Mik, but same issue for me, why are they so b****y long!!! My modded super shorties with adjustable folding cheek piece with Walther grip are much nicer, polished alloy bling, and prettier colour, see the next NRA article! Your dolphin pic is the new one, with the butt plate design they copied from one of my speciaIs , I use the old one Dolphins because they are slimmer. I'll see Mik soon I'll confirm but you should have sold it by then!. Sorry Phil butting in on your sale, what ever it is guys, just buy it!

  18. Hi, I had a look at the Martini on Tuesday night and I think there's a fair bit missing/wrong with it. I've been offered a complete one in good condition by another club for £100, which would make more sense, and I'd be able to test it first. Re the missing parts - no one seems to know (other than general 'make one good out of several bad' musings). I did find a box in a cupboard with what looked like /parts/ of one or more PH25Bs, but I didn't ask what events had led to them being taken apart! So, I think I'll end my quest for PH sights at the moment. Thanks anyway everyone!

  19. Yes, I thought that may be the case. Best use it best you can, or look and admire it and love it, and consider whether buying a rear site that probably costs more than what the rifle is worth is good economics. It may be that one turns up at sometime and it would be nice if someone would lend you one as you asked for, so you could make your mind up. Could I suggest some detective work with the club committee and members to ask why they have no rear sights? it could be someone has them for safe keeping. Jonty

  20. Ian, Could I suggest you try shooting with an Anschutz or similar. I know that some people shoot with BSA's to good effect, but they really are last century. The more modern rifles usually will come with sights, buttplates etc, and you can then add/improve on them if you wish. Does the club have a modern rifle, or is there someone you know who could let you have use of a modern(ish) bolt action rifle? Jonty

  21. It can't be a Mk 3 (or a Mk 4 or 5). These all had the handstop rail cut into the aluminium hanger/cantilever beam (Mk 3) or spar (Mk 4/5) that provided the fore-end. The wood was cosmetic, rather than structural. The Mk 1 and 2 had a plate screwed into the wood. Suspect someone stripped the threads in another rifle at some point and scavenged parts.

    Wanted: Bisley Caravan

    I am not sure on present day arrangements as organised by NRA. However a few years ago when I enquired the problem was obtaining a site on which to place the caravan. NRA were facilitating the sale of used vans but a long waiting list for a site. Ofcourse all things may have changed in recent times. Best of luck in your pursuits. Joe

  27. This is predominantly a smallbore forum, kit can be legal for one discipline but not the other. As I wrote, might be worth mentioning if the cuff is 40mm+, as it's not NSRA legal.

  28. Good to hear she is doing well. I would like if I may to add a couple of clarification points to your advert - I believe I am qualified to do so, given that I actually owned this rifle and sold it to you in 2019 so I can comment factually. Just to clear a few things up which others have asked. The barrel and action is a Supermatch barrel and it was made in 2012 - It had one owner before me, who bought it new and I owned it for 4 years. The previous owner to me told me that it was a selected barrel from Anschutz, but I had no documentation to verify this at the time. The previous owner to me of it is a Solicitor so I have no reason to doubt what he told me when I bought it from him. When I sold it in December 2019 to you it had had 12000 rds through it - which I told you and which is also stated in the original advert for this rifle on Stirton back in late 2019. I have absolutely no idea where you got the notion that it won commonwealth games medals in the hands of my daughter - I certainly didn't tell you this. My daughter doesn't even shoot! It did however win medals at Scotland 2019 and Bisley 2019 and also made the Eley Finals in 2019 and several HPS Scores in various NSRA leagues and comps, evidence of which I showed you when you came to see the rifle at the time. Notwithstanding the above - It is a lovely rifle and whoever buys it I am sure will be delighted with it.

  29. Scouts RC have been offered a heap if Anschutz Match 54 rifles & a few 64s too, ideal for smaller kids etc but they dont have sights. If you have any old steel or ally framed Anschutz rear sights, (even bits to fix sights) that will fit & are willing to donate or sell for a token price then please PM me. Some basic foresight tunnels too. Post costs can be covered or transport via network & Bisley. Maybe you upgraded & its in a box, or now do benchrest or just had a spare thats not being used? It can be put to good use generating future shooters. Thanks in advance Phil Scouts Skills Instructor Shooting NRA Club Coach

    WANTED: 22LR Target Rifle

    I took the "precious" to mean that some owners overvalued their rifles; an 1813 will be 35-40 years old, yet some sellers price like nearly new. I think he meant it's worth haggling, rather than Anschutz rifles aren't any good.

  33. I think Phil's point is that your friend can likely find a very good deal on Anschutz rifles because they're so commonly used, so worth not just going for the first one you're offered.

  36. I hope this helps, from memory the buttplate was made by SG&N and is the forerunner to the gemini, dates from the late 80's early 90's.

    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.

  38. 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.

  42. 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.

  43. 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.

  50. 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.
