  1. George, 'fraid the bolts aren't M5. These are M6 Fine (0.75mm pitch). These aren't available in the big DIY shops, at least around me. Some of the UK target shooting equipment carry bolts. I've also bought some from J & P in the US; excellent quality but after HMRC demanded their pound of flesh, not cheap.
  2. John, I think G&E stocks are machined for G&E actions, but they sell adaptors for round actions. Hopefully the combination of an alu stock and ultra-short action should be balance well.
  3. Hi Dave, Taunton is looking for a Match 64. Whereabouts are you? Tim
  4. Congratulations! May we ask what it is?
  5. PM me your email, and I'll send some.
  6. I've got one in the cupboard bedded for a Match 54, 1413 butt carrier (no plate) and Anschutz spring loaded cheekpiece. Not Anschutz, but a pretty piece of walnut. Does £75 + postage seem reasonable?
  7. Neil, If you're prepared to split, I'm after April '83.
  8. This one? https://www.guntrader.uk/guns/rifles/anschutz The price is good considering the new butt and handstop. I wouldn't be too hasty in saying it's a 1613. I've seen a few early LH 1800s with 1600 barrel/receivers. You have to see the bolt and trigger to be sure. The SN is a little low for an early 1800 mind. The model aside, this is a heavy barrel, and will weight 13lb-ish.
  9. Roger, This one? https://www.guntrader.uk/guns/rifles/anschutz/bolt-action/22-lr/1807l-181121100327552 It's an 1809 rather than an 1807; the barrel is the same, so it's an easy mistake. Those deep ISU fore-end can be modified on a bandsaw. My club sliced 2cm off a 1410 to drop the barrel for prone. £400 is not a bad price for a lefty.
  10. Victoria, A Martini with an ambidextrous stock would probably be a 1940s 12/15. These used the motion of the breech to eject. The later BSA Internationals had spring-powered ejector that work very well; my Club Mk 2 will throw a live cartridge 15 feet! The Internationals have dedicated RH or LH stocks, sights, and breeches. A Mk 4 would be a good choice. These have the lighter barrel(C 10-11lb total weight) and an alloy fore-end bracket with a proper handstop rail. Be wary of the heavy Mk 2 rifles; these have a very heavy 29in barrel. BSA butts tend to be quite long to the grip, but it's not difficult to have a slice cut off the back.
  11. I think he means a 44in rather than a continental size 44, hence the reference to you wearing an extra jumper.
  12. Ah a 50, that's a standard fit UK men's 40in.
  13. Garry, Are you sure that's a 20? I can't see a 20 listed on Thune's size chart.
