    Bleiker 6mm br CISM

    Bump to the top, as this is still a bargain and I can't understand why someone hasn't bitten his arm off? Anyway, Here's a close up of my scope rail. As you can imagine, it would have been... 'interesting' trying to position the mounts to get that eye relief with the Bleiker rail

    Bleiker 6mm br CISM

    Nope, I was wrong again - they both have magazines. https://www.bleiker.ch/?lid=1#!42 CISM, 10 shot magazine https://www.bleiker.ch/?lid=1#!43 CISM Prone, 8 shot magazine. (and yes, the Bleiker website is terrible...)

    Bleiker 6mm br CISM

    Err, mine has a magazine? That's why the stock is so deep just in front of the trigger guard... Edit while typing: you're thinking of the CISM *PRONE* stock - https://bleiker.ch/?lid=1#!56 ... have a close look at the angle of the stock in front of the trigger guard, and compare it to the plain CISM model - https://bleiker.ch/?lid=1#!55 You're not forced to use the magazine though, it's just a loading platform when I shoot!

    Bleiker 6mm br CISM

    Jo, I have one of these rifles, which I use to shoot F-Class at 200 and 500 yards, and if I lived 200 miles closer to Bisley, I'd probably use for 300m as well... Pro: That's a very good price for the rifle if it includes the sights as per the picture! As the rifle is designed for 300m shooting you shouldn't have any problems using it for that, and the 6BR round is pretty accurate out to that distance. 350 is a decent round count, the usual estimates for a 6BR are 5-6000 rounds out of a barrel. Cons (all minor, really): It'll do you fine for short range F-Class, *if* you replace the rearsight dovetail rail with a longer one. The one fitted by Bleiker is about 1/2 the length of the top of the action, and is not long enough to sensibly mount a scope on; if you look at the picture above you can just about see rail being only just longer than the fitted sights! The good news is that it's a simple enough engineering job to manufacture a replacement - I got Barry Nesom on the job for mine. Use Loctite on the two bolts when you put them back in, otherwise they will fall out again after a few boxes of ammo The stock isn't the greatest in terms of shape and adjustment - you'll probably want to upgrade to a better one in time. The 6BR round starts to fade a bit at 500 yards, so it gets affected by the wind more than the larger F-Class calibres. You'll not be using it at 1000 yards either Factory ammunition (Norma DIamond Line is pretty much the only choice) is CRIPPLINGLY expensive, so expect to reload them! I'd say "yes, buy it", but by all means have a word with your mate first
  5. Selling this on behalf of Roy at the club (posts on here as roythefish), to make use of my *ahem* higher profile in shooting along with my ability to get pictures onto the PC and "sort it out" For sale - "A N Other" aluminium buttplate assembly, pictures here. Possibly made by Barry Nesom. Has all the basic range of adjustments, but it's no Aktiv and the curve shape is fixed 12mm rods - was used on a Walther KK2/300 aluminium stock but might be adjustable to fit the Anschutz 2213, as there appears to be the option to increase the rod separation to ~60mm? 5 removable weights on the hook (4 with grubscrews in place). Seems to be in reasonable, although used, condition - currently in the possession of Roy, but he's only 10 minutes down the road so I can pick it up at any point. Happy to get more measurements and field questions if required. £50 including postage.

    Screw For Anschutz Cantable Rear Sight 7002

    Fitting sights - you're doing it wrong.

    Wears out? Mine's over a decade old and still working! What are you doing to them?

    Offset plates provisionally sold to Cumbrian, pending the usual.

    [Sold] Offset Sight Plates

    OK, I've tested them against an 1813, date code "IA" (1980?) and the rear plate fits perfectly. The front plate would probably have fit perfectly too, if we could have gotten the current sight off(!); I tested the feel of the dovetail against the one mounted on the front of the barrel and it was snug enough to imagine that tightening the bolts would finish the job http://imgur.com/a/vjLQQ ^ link to a couple of pictures of tonight's efforts. Are they in good nick? Looks like they've been machined from a piece of stock 10mm aluminium plate, so there's a few surface scrapes on the underneath where it's not been polished - but the dovetails and bolt heads are clean.

    Right then, I'll get them down to my other club tonight and try them on some of the club rifles in the safe

    [Sold] Offset Sight Plates

    Sorry for the delay, I was out and about for most of the weekend and didn't spot your reply! They've had use for about 8 months, once a week - I could probably give them a wipe down to get some of the marks off, but most of what you can see in the photos is tooling from manufacture (IMO). They're aluminium, but not anodised. I can send you the high-res versions of the above photos if you like (drop me a PM), or take some more? Our guy in the club had an older Match 54, which probably was an 1800 series but I'm not sure. A quick Google seems to say that the 1800s had an 11mm dovetail, so that might well work; I can test them on my 1913 tonight if that's any help?

    [Sold] Offset Sight Plates

    Chap at our club has packed up, after his macular degeneration finally got the better of his interest in shooting So, he'd like to sell the offset sight blocks he tried for right hand/left eye action: IIRC, sourced from Barry Nesom... would suit a dovetail with a max width of 11mm, and the rear block appears to be slightly rounded to mimic the Anschutz actions that we know and love. Laterally adjustable on the front and rear block, and can probably be used for either RH/LE or LH/RE by flipping them round Currently in my possession, £65 including postage.

    Spotting Scope

    I use one of those Greenkat/Opticron angled eyepiece scopes, with a 22x eyepiece in it. It's almost 20 years old now, and as I haven't abused it it's still clear at 100 yards to the point where I can call "just out" in most light conditions... They're still comparably cheap, so for £600 I would expect you to be able to get something like this.

    Swap: My Precise Medium Grip For Your L

    And a pleasure to meet you too! I didn't fall over anything else for the weekend I'll try and get a photo of the width of the M grip to go with the ones you've posted. Tomorrow though, it's 23:57 and I've only just got sat down after unpacking the car!

    Swap: My Precise Medium Grip For Your L

    As it turns out, mine has "L" stamped inside the hollow so I'd be up for swapping. Don't suppose you're at Bisley this week?
