    Anschutz 19 Series Stock Wanted

    Well, If I'm successful there would be an 1813 stock up for grabs. The condition is good, I refinished the exterior with oil last year as the original was tatty. The stippling at the grip and fore-end is a little worn though. The walnut came up a golden brown colour and has a pleasant grain. The reciever and first inch of the barrel were bedded with metal/epoxy. This has been partially removed from under the barrel to fit my 1407. You wouldn't think but the xx07 barrel is actually wider at the receiver than the "heavy". It would come with a palm-rest, and a system gemini Ultra free-rifle butt. I'll think of prices IF I get Walter's gemini. Fingers crossed.

    Anschutz 19 Series Stock Wanted

    I know, I was hoping that Walter meant half the price for an Ultra not half the price for a new FR703.

    Anschutz 19 Series Stock Wanted

    My fingers are itching now! I wonder how much Walter would take? If the price is right I would certainly be interested. If succesful a nice bedded 1813, with a Gemini butt would be up for sale!

    Sight Raising Blocks Wanted

    I don't know of any that do that. The older Anschutz 14-18 rifles are often fitted with a stepped block with a higher part for 50m and a lower bit for 100 yards. On these you had to remove the foresight tunnel and refit it to the other block, not rotate it. But these fitted onto the barrel replacing the factory block, and wouldn't fit your FWB. Barry Nesom will make a foresight tunnel that can be rotated to move you from 50m to 100 yards. Is that what your meant? I think Batty would be able to supply you with his number.

    18mm Anschutz Front Sight Canting Tube

    I can second that;; the Nesom tube is very useful. You do have to be careful with the clamp for the bubble though, as it easy to strip the thread. Mine arrived in less than a week, with hand written fitting instructions wishing me good shooting

    Gun Cabinet Wanted

    I have a brattonsound 5 gun cabinet that is available. It would have to be collected from Essex. £50 sound right?

    Comb Spacers

    Does anyone have any unwanted comb spacers for 1807s? Exeter Uni could do with more than the one we currently have. Cheers Tim S

    Comb Spacers

    Comb Spacers

    Thanks Robert, but I think I'm working from 4pm on Sunday. If it's an early start and back to Devon by then count me in! We'll certainly take you up on giving the stock a lift. Must bully the rest of the committee into saying yes!

    Comb Spacers

    £50 sounds good, I shall bully the committee Given our remoteness in Devon from the civilization of Bisley, would posting (with the price adjusted accordingly) be ok? cheers Tim

    Comb Spacers

    Rose any 1807 spacers, The 1907 jobs are too long and won't properly fit under the cheeekpiece. Would have to check the club funds, but a 1907 stock is better than an 1807. What sort of price were you looking for? cheers Tim

    Comb Spacers

    Thanks for the replies so far. We have a stop-gap method of folded shot cards, but these have a tendency to fall out when the comb is moved. The ammo box lids idea may be usefull for fine tuning! thanks again to all

    Wanted: Foresight Block

    Have you tried the NSRA shop? I bought mine there last year, cost about a fiver. Also they work by going to the lower step for 100yards! An alternative is one of the Kelly-type turn-over foresight tunnels. The current versions can be adjusted to compensate for any cant, which the blocks don't.

    Trigger Shoe And Handstop

    I've been using the AHG 4752 with the QD lever for three years now and have found it very comfortable. I don't have huge hands so the diameter is just about right. I beleive the depth can be sightly altered too. Lateral adjustment is useful; the rifle should be sitting over the palm, not on the thumb muscle. With a small centrally mounted handstop such as the 6225 your hand may be too far under the stock, adding to the pressure from already there from the shallow design. The 4752 it the right size and can be moved into the right place. They are also rather cheaper than the MEC or HPS. On the downside the finish is not very durable and mine became scuffed from the sling claw.

    Trigger Shoe And Handstop

    Innes, did you mean a handstop where the sling clips in well ahead of your hand? Or one where the sling pressure on the hand is reduced by having the sling clip in closer to your hand. After breaking my wrist (freak accident involving a calypso band and a ceilidgh) i found that I need the latter. The Anschutz hand stop with the quick-release lever has worked well for me. The handstop part is large enough to keep the swivel level with the back of my hand. This one can be offset left-right also, though not by as much as the Gemini I beleive.

    Trigger Shoe And Handstop

    Check ebay, there are quite often used handstops to be found; from memory a used 4751 Anschutz (the big black plastic one) went for about £25-30.

    Old .22 1813 Barrel And Action

    Hmm can certainly sympathise, I'm still at Uni myself (eight years and counting!). I'm lucky though Exeter has an on-campus range with a big armoury that my Match 54 sits nicely in. However I think Rob has a point. You will either need to buy a duplicate stock and sights, or have the hassle of constantly removing your action from the stock. Will you be at BUSA?

    Old .22 1813 Barrel And Action

    Wouldn't snap caps or spent cases be a lot cheaper! Also are current deactivated firearms allowed to have working mechanisms?

    Aberdeen University

    Blimey, i thought our armoury was a bit thin on parts. Can you not send the FWB sights back to be repaired. Your AU might be persuaded to cough up for things like that. What did you mean by handstop pins? Do mean the detent ball-bearings on the new type swivels (HPS and Bedford Target supplies will sell new swivels). If cost is an issue you might consider selling on one of the unused to cover new bits. Tim S Exeter Uni
