  1. If the barrel has the grooves cut into it (as opposed to a block on top of it) then you shouldn't need the raiser block - the sights are designed for 19xx and 20xx series rifles.
  2. While Centra sights will attached to the older foresight dovetail mounts, you may well need to put a 4mm riser block under the rearsight.
  3. I hear you've worked out how to shoot kneeling at last! Good shoot at the weekend (1164 for those that haven't heard).

    You could always do what I've been suggesting for months and make an insurance claim for the damned thing!

    Wanted Free Or Cheap To A Good Home

    Lottery funding for sport is administered in Scotland by SportScotland. Alternatively, try your local sports council - Fife have been supportive of other clubs in your area.

    Wanted Free Or Cheap To A Good Home

    It depends which country you are in - lottery funding is administered differently in each of England, Northern Ireland, Scotland & Wales.

    Anschutz Stock

    Same story here - my 12 year old started shooting with Shirley's old 1807, but we are moving her onto the Gemini stock because it is a little shorter, and we can get some decent adjusment on the cheek-piece. Don't think Shirley will want to sell the wooden stock though, it's the one she won Gold at CG in 1994 with... There should be plenty of wooden stocks around though - lots of women just bought a new stock when the conversion to Sport Rifle came in 1997.

    Anschutz Stock

    Hi Mary You can get a System Gemini standard rifle stock right now on special offer from HPS - much better than a wooden one - see http://www.hps-tr.com

    Yeah, but that applied to the old software. Surely this new, super-duper, version can cope with daylight saving automatically

    Headspace gauge

    Does anyone know where I can get my hands on some headspace gauges for a smallbore rifle? Mac

    Full results aren't available - the NSRA won't post results of competitions as they've been advised that it would breach data protection legisation in the UK (contrary to the advice that was received in Scotland). There was some discussion about the results in the "National" forum on this site, and there are some photos and results (from a Scottish perspective) on the SSRA site.
  20. I saw a set of offset sight bars on the Centra UK stand at the British Airgun, and I think Centra just launched a new version at the IWA show. Where is the sight mount on your rifle - if it is a side mount then you will be struggling - these are all designed around a top mount like smallbore/air rifles.

    Headspace gauge

    Yup. I'm booked into Eley at the end of March, but that doesn't help if I want to check other peoples rifles, or modify the headspace on my own... Mac

    Walther Sights

    It might be worth considering getting a new tunnel from Centra UK - they are available for Walther as well as Anschutz etc. Good tunnels, don't think they are too expensive. Mac
