    Still looking for a Left handed .22 rifle

    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.

    Still looking for a Left handed .22 rifle

    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.

    Target Shooting Jacket

    I think he means a 44in rather than a continental size 44, hence the reference to you wearing an extra jumper.
  4. Ah a 50, that's a standard fit UK men's 40in.
  5. Garry, Are you sure that's a 20? I can't see a 20 listed on Thune's size chart.

    That's good to hear. A 1978 Supermatch stock (with a 4760 butt) is functionally the same as a 1990 1913, bar the bedding bolts. There's often some nice walnut under the brown factory finish.

    1813 Barrel & Action

    Roger, I think the Kelly is a little crisper, and holds adjustment better. My Anschutz 5018s occasionally needed a tweak. Both can be set scary light. Adjustment is a little simpler as there is only one weight screw.

    Walther KK300 Anatomic for Sale - SOLD!

    It might help to state the age, and known "mileage". I can read the proof marks, but I'm a geek. Knowing how old it is may help a potential buyer work out a fair asking price. Good luck with the sale.

    If you're at Bisley, or can get to the meeting, there were a couple of 1813s listed on the sale boards. Not sure on price though. Does it have to be an 1813? The 1913 is mechanically the same; the differences are in the foresight mount, and stock. The 1613s and 1413s can shoot too; spare parts are the only issue. The 1413 trigger isn't as adjustable as the 1813/1913, but not bad.

    Various Shooting Kit - Stocks, sights, jacket

    Ooh ooh grip attachment please!

    That's a Mk 4 or 5 I think, so the up-down alloy butt is correct. I'd say the wood has been shortened, so the metal now stands proud.

    Bolt Protectors-Anschutz

    The front portion of the bolt didn't change until the mid-'80s, and even then Anschutz only switched from the shallow groove clearing the ejector to a slighter broader and shallower rib. The lug geometry appears the same. The firing pin and cocking cams did change, but that may not matter.

    Anschutz foresight

    Jonts, Stonehenge is in Wiltshire. Our weird hippies congregate around Glastonbury. I think the issue we have gatecrashed is a 1913 foresight on a Match 54 barrel that has maxed out the rearsight for elevation.

    Anschutz foresight

    The eventual recipient of the tunnel I think.

    Anti glare tube for a 6805

    Doesn't the 6805 have an integral anti-glare tube? The older 6705 doesn't, but it's not threaded at the front for a tube, like the 6702 and 6802 are, nor is the 6805 come to think of it.

    Centra block speed front and rear

    Simon, Are these for Anschutz 54 or 1913 mounts?

    Centra Vibrake

    I think mine was flared left and right, but only open on the right. The left side could probably be machined into an opening.

    Kit clear out

    If you're willing to post, I'd take the sling and glove. Postage would obviously go on the asking price.

    Centra Vibrake

    Aren't all Vibrakes closed on one side? Glad you found one though.

    Centra Vibrake

    The KK500 appears to be quite a lot stiffer than an Anschutz 54, especially in vertical axis. Is the raiser really a stiffener, or a bridge to compensate for the short action and double loading port for rearsight position?

    Kurt Thune Prone 600

    Bump, now over £400 new, save money and a six week wait.

    Kurt Thune Prone 600

    For sale, a KT Prone 600, size 98 (38in chest long) in blue/grey. Bought in June, but only worn to test fit. Top two buttons have been moved, but the jacket is otherwise as new. Sadly I'm not a standard size, and Pippa Taylor is unable to tweak it as planned. I'm looking for £300. Buyer can collect from Taunton, or I'll post. Photos on request

    Metal Screw in JACKET BUTTONS

    Finally found the right tin, but alas only two metal. I've got 5 on an unwanted KT jacket, but those need to stay there.

    Metal Screw in JACKET BUTTONS

    I think I have some. I know that I have some plastic Monads, but I swear there are some metal too. How many do you need?
