    Wanted: LH .22 rifle for club use

    Shame, the Unique was excellent I looked up the bore & it was very good, the true LH Ghemann rearsight was worth 50% the cost of the gun alone.

    7.62 Swing

    a 12/28" would be a good long range gun, & a 13/30" a good all range :-) & the stock sounds interesting :-) Border haven't made barrels for ~3-4 years i think so the pedigree of it would be good to know. I have a member tres interested so Hi its for a mate - pictures will probably convince them to sell; the wife, motorbike or other gun ...............am indeed down then & can have a look, why dont you come to the NRA 100 Sunday afternoon 29th - 4 & 10 prone, standing & kneeling at 300yds with it :-) £24 & any ammo............. even mixed types standing is fine! (I have RCO/SSC/NRA..etc). am shooting my Anschutz 22 at 300 & 400 yds Sat pm so will wander over after say hello. Re bolt bit early Mk 3 the bolt retaining lug is a plug on a leaf spring, later & Mk 4 a round piston in a block - its the thing u pull out to get the bolt out of it....... rest of the description sounds good, am trying to build a minds eye picture - thumb-hole or pistol grip Walther?

    Left Hander Needs His First Gun

    Get the 308 first ;-) they are much much much harder to find. See HPS website for one, I have looked at this gun its got a very good bore, it is a Swing 5 -Paramount 1 (yes it has both makes engraved on it). You can buy a LH 22 almost any time (there are 2 on gunstar now) & any day of the week if new, but a LH 308 TR is a rare beast . I have a LH Precise stock vgc but no action or barrel, I have a LH rear-sight & spare duo foresight so if you get an action & barrel you are ready to go with in effect a new gun. See Beds target supplies for (reasonably?) priced barrels & actions.

    Bedding Bolts For Match 54 In Supermatch Stock

    Belleville washers ensure the end load of the screw is transmitted as compression of the stock to the action. A solid bush wont, some of the torque load is lost compressing the bush & then as friction under the head of the screw. Belleville washers slide over each other to translate more of the applied torque into axial load. They also help distribute load over a wider area & accommodate some expansion of wood with temperature / moisture. They are there for good reason.

    Bedding Bolts For Match 54 In Supermatch Stock

    They are M6 x0.75 pitch you can buy them from some machine suppliers - i used to buy long M6 stainless then put a 0.75 tap down it to cut my own at '10% price charged by gunshops.
