    I have to question why a RH shooter would be interested in a LH stock?

    @HitchphilEdinburgh University have an absurd surplus of the bipods, imagine they would be happy to let a number go for a very reasonable price. Feel free to drop me a message if that would be of interest.
  3. Thanks

    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.

    Yes, now that it has been edited to include the price subsequent to the two posts asking...

    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.

    Neil, a few months isn't a long time to be shooting with a club rifle. Unless there's some major defect with the club rifle or no rifle is available that is a remotely good fit for her then she'd be as well continuing with a club gun and investing in a well fitting shooting jacket if she is serious about keeping up the sport. 
    Particularly if her average is "creeping into the 90s", there's no need to have your own rifle at that stage and having something entirely adjustable may well prove to be a hindrance rather than a help.

    Ever messaged someone your bank details while selling something on here? That data. Ever sent someone your address when buying? That data. Ever used your name when arranging to meet someone at Bisley in a PM? That data. 
    It's easier than you think to steal valuable data via online profiles.

    Again, why do you think "no scammers" would stop untrustworthy and dishonest people? It just winds people up and it doesn't achieve anything.

    Don't forget the value of all the accessories though.

    I'd always assumed the issue was with soliciting a value and then selling on here Tim, obviously because of the potential for arguments, etc...
     
    My brother bought a similar rifle (same stock, handstop, foresight and buttplate but with a 2013 barrel and action and Hammerli rearsight) for £1000. That was an exceptionally good deal though, so I'd say somewhere in the region of £1000 doesn't sound unfair. It does depend on the level of usage of the barrel and the condition it's been kept in though.

    Honestly mate, if you're planning on doing some proper training you're better picking an ammo your rifle likes and sticking with it rather than mixing and matching with different batches and brands.

    Hi, our club is looking for just this kind of rifle. I'll speak to the club committee but provisionally we'd be interested.
