    Looks like I have an offer for one from the States, from member off TargetTalk forum.

    Glen, if that doesn't work out, email Edinkillie for a quote. Nothing to say they don't post overseas on their website...


  2. I certainly only use mine to provide rails over the loading port which is where I position my sight's clamps. I have no doubt it makes naff all difference to stiffness (especially on a 20-series) and I do have to pull out the odd case that spins inside the loading port in preference to being ejected.

    I suspect the Anschutz variant may provide notionally greater stiffness (though still close to naff all) as it is based on a tube rather than flat plate and the clamps are longer, but there is less flexibility (no pun intended :)of sight placement as is directly attached to the sight itself.

  3. Does the forum need to change, what's the driver here?

    Personally, I appreciate this forum as it is. I have met and heard opinions from shooters from all over, I have made much use of the buying and selling areas (some closer to home would say not enough selling!) and I have my interest piqued occasionally, particularly when it comes to aspects of legislation or, as Chris says, ISSF rule changes (even though I don't shoot to those rules).

     

    To an extent, this forum is quieter due to the calibre of its patrons - what's said is in the main constructive, inciteful and self-policing, a far cry from the many examples you see with a little blue thumbsup; Facebook does not a good forum make. Yes, it's immediate, but the quality of material follows the 80:20 rule from the wrong side. I think a forum allows a more considered response and also an inherent archive - there's many a time I've gone back to a post or two because I know I can.

  5. Hi All

    Not very hopeful but we thought we would give it a try, we have in the club an Anchutz 8002 Alu stock 177 Match Air Rifle which was accidently knocked off a table causing the stock to snap near the pistol grip.

    Has anyone come across this problem before? can the stock be repaired? or is there someone out there with a spare stock that would fit this rifle?

    A club member, Andy at www.specialistweldingservice.co.uk, fixed my 2213 smallbore stock for me a few years ago. Mine fell off a bench :/ He put a little more meat on it so it would be stronger than it was originally. I also have an 8002 and can say they are pretty similar in this area.

     

    I touched it up with Humbrol enamel afterwards and you can hardly tell.
