  1. Should be able to meet you this weekend if that suits.
  2. I have a Paramount available at £1400, complete with sights, quality gunslip, 3 cleaning rods and full set of cleaning kit, additional adjustable-height foresight and various irises, spares and accessories; the stock has been freshly refinished. The rifle belonged to a retiring club member who was a Royal Marine; when I received it I was able to remove practically no carbon or copper from the barrel whatsoever - it was probably the cleanest barrel I'd ever seen, so I'm sure it has been very well looked-after. The barrel was recently inspected by a well-known TR gunsmith. I'd describe it as 'middle-aged'. The bore was in reasonable condition with no sign of any significant break-up of the lands that might suggest it's close to the end of its useful life, but it was also clear that more of its life is behind it than lies ahead. I've always used second-hand rifles myself, at up-to Commonwealth Games level, and I only feel that a rifle is truly mine once it's had a new barrel; your budget more than accommodates the price of a brand new barrel when the need arises, but that need does not appear to be imminent. The rifle is being sold by a national fullbore rifle association. The rifle is currently located at Bisley and I can meet you there at any time to view (complete with a borescope). I'll take some photos and post a for sale listing, hopefully later today.

    Are the push-on rings the ones without the filter inserts?
