  1. I do also agree that is a good price and well worth the price,  the barrel count is fine, but just to correct, 6 mmBR accurate barrel life is 2500 -3000 certainly for shooting on tight targets such as 300 m and F class.

    Also 6 mmBR shoots very well at 500 and 600 yds, my wife uses her spare 6 mmBR at 600 very successfully to practice wind,  (and that's using our soft loaded 300 m loads), shoots flatter and handles wind very similar to 7.62 because the Ballistic Coefficient  (BC) is better, and they will also go out to 1000 with no problems.

    For 300 m use, the CISM has a 1500gm trigger, but the free trigger can be fitted, and the rifle shoots very well at 300 m (what its designed for), agree on ammo, factory Norma or  Lapua is silly expensive, we reload top level ammo, works out about 60p a pop using 107 gn SIerra MK's.

    Both you and Nick are welcome to come to the gb300m dates to shoot the real thing!

    I'd have bought it at that price if I'd had a space on my ticket! So get it quick before I'm tempted to get a variation! I'm surprised its still there!

     


  2. The KK500 one is purely a sight raiser and also a rail over the port, although on the KK500 there is also a full rail over the port on the action. The sight line is so low that I've never seen any one who shoots with out it on.

    The KK500 on also works nicely on a KK300 for any one who wants the sights a long way forward.


  3. Any one have or know a source of any SWING parts? I'm after a new or good condition bolt retaining thingy for a Mark three,  the button and the spring.

    Thanks Robin


  4. Cheap sights, you get what you pay for, a cheap sight!!! And Gamo are rubbish.

    The best budget sight is the Gehmann 590 compact, they are top level quality at budget money, we have used them for air, small bore, and my wife is currently using one on her 300 metre rifle,  excellent sights for budget money of around £140 new, and they will fit any dovetail.

    Have Fun

  5. Now withdrawn, due to being messed about by a supplier on my new one, doing what I should have done in the first place after spending a fortune on it. I'm having it in a new stock with new sights, so now its only:-

    A Walther UIT Walnut stock, bedded for a Mk 3 Swing, complete with Walther rail and sling swivel, Gehmann but plate and adjustable cheek piece. £100 ONO plus postage.

    Still have the Sportco  cluttering up my cabinet, advertised at the same time if any one is interested in making a silly offer?

    Have Fun

  6. Now selling my wife's TR rifle,  its a Sportco, M44 single shot target action,  with a Border (Kolbe) Stainless barrel 1 - 13 twist, 24 ins, with a taper from the action to 21.5 mm dia then 21.5  parallel to the muzzle. Barrel has a logged 200 rds from new. Standard crisp single stage Sportco trigger.

    Stock is a modified standard Sportco (with top cover removed) with Anschutz accessory rail, alloy butt plate and adjustable for length by spacers, in a nice dark Walnut.

    Rear sight is Parker Hale with 5 hole eye piece, front sight is 18 mm Anschutz.

    A nice, great shooting TR rifle that would suit the more compact shooter. £950 ono.

    For those who know us and keep emailing with " are you both packing up?" No, I have a new one on order, and the boss is concentrating on 300 mt.


  7. Thanks Phil

    I'm afraid I think these long barrel lengths is old fashioned bull****,  the twist is the important thing to match the ammo weight and speed, the burn is long over by the length many run,  I work on balance and sight base, the 13 twist on a 26 is near enough perfect, it shoots possibles at 600 when I point it at the middle. The stock is a standard Walther UIT prone stock from the 80's, deep pistol grip, parallel rounded fore end,  a bit wide for me, I nearly ground the fore end slimmer as I have small hands, but never got around to it, now just as well!

    Chris bought a stock of Borders before they collapsed and ours were the last of his stock,  so we had the last of the Kolbe Borders, fitted the beginning of last year. The bolt retaining is a leaf spring. It went to Robert as my wife could not open the bolt, usual Swing wrestling job, its now a rare Swing, smooth (for a Swing) bolt opening.

    I took some pics today, email me and I'll crash your computer for you with an overload.

    We are shooting both days 28th/29th so no time, but you are welcome to visit, you may be glad to if its raining! I'll make space and take it down. I think we have a match Sat afternoon but its only last an hour.

    Old farts, we now only do prone. Be a busy week end this weekend as well, I have a new 6 mmBR barrel to run in, and that's only 22 ins!

    The stock is indeed the Walther KK 1980's vintage prone Walnut stock,  right handed, not vented, TR is only a 10 or 15 shot match series,  the cheek piece is adjustable by placing spacers underneath.

    I have not a clue what you mean by the bolt type, its a standard 4 lug  Swing bolt re worked by Robert Nibbs to match the Davies trigger, and most importantly to be opened easily by a normal human being by hand (and with out steroids), and not need a mallet or pipe extension like many Swings do!  The front sight is an 18 mm Anschutz tunnel, with an adjustable iris, the rear is a Wilkes with a five hole eye piece.

    The barrel is a stainless Border (an original company one) 1 - 13 twist, 26.5 ins long, tapering from action dia to 20 mm at muzzle. It was fitted by Chris Behn and proofed by the London Proof house. It was run in meticulously and exceedingly boringly, and has had all shots logged from new at 185. It shoots very well with GGG ammo.

    Why sell if its that good? My favourite event is ISSF 300 mt, I have decided to have a new TR 7.62 rifle built by my 300 mt rifle supplier Keppeler as close to my 300mt as possible just with a 1500 gm trigger and in 7.62 so I can get some uniformity going from one to the other.

    If you are genuinely interested I will be at Bisley 28th/29th shooting 300 mt, you can shoot it  on the 28th if you arrange a target and have an SCC and are an NRA member. We will be at the 300 mt shed this weekend if you wish to chat, but will not have this rifle with me.

    If you would like pictures email me on robin.carter80@ntlworld.com , I tried putting them on here and they are too big and I have no idea how to reduce them!

    Have Fun

  9. For Sale, my Mk3 Swing (Swenson and Ingram) 7.62 X 51 Target rifle.
