  1. You certainly amassed some quality gear in the short period you shot. I hope your injury improves, and who knows, you may again be able to shoot at some time. Always sad to see a shooter packing in. Good luck with your sale. Jonty

    For Sale: Mec/centra Duplex

    Let me get this right, Its OK for you to slag off someones's item they are wanting to sell, but you can't have anything said about your comments, yeah right. Squishy may be a good/great shot, and feels he doesnt need it. Did he like it though? Jonty

    For Sale: Mec/centra Duplex

    Chunter, I think you missed off the bit, 'In my opinion'. Many shooters use the MEC/Centra Duplex with great effect and have found it a great aid to improving scores. If I did'nt have poor eyesight and use lenses, I would certainly use one. To just state, 'you dont need one' is purely your opinion and certainly unhelpful to the person selling the item. Jonty

    Gemini Butt Plate

    Yes, Tim is correct. Removing the black vertical bar will mean loss of fine vertical adjustment. You may still get vertical adjustment by moving up on the bolt holes, but this would not be a preferred outcome. It would probably move in 20mm increments, Yuck! To buy a carrier would be very expensive , I would suggest. Has'nt philW got the original part that is missing? J

    Gemini Butt Plate

    If you removed the black vertical bar from the buttplate, you should be able to bolt the buttplate to an Anschutz carrier! Having said that I have not had the opportunity to check the hole centres on the relevant parts. If they do not align, then that would be a big problem. Jonty

    Supermatch Or Xx11 Prone Rifle Found

    C'mon Tim g, put us out of our misery, what have you invested into. Jonty

    Supermatch Or Xx11 Prone Rifle Found

    Cheers for the pointers Tim. I'll happily extend the search to include xx11 rifles too. If only I could find a way to edit the thread's topic line! T To change your header, In your ad, click on 'edit' then 'full editor' and then you can change the header. As for the ammo, Edge is about £112 per 1,000 (With a bit of discount for 1k) so thats £56 per 500, then £5.60 for a box of 50. Sounds good to me for a nights shooting. Ensure on your Firearm cert application you have authority to possess max 1500 and to purchase max 1,000. At the least. I know FEO try to get you to have less, but as an avid shooter who is attending many shoots, that is a reasonable amount to have. You shouldnt have to spend all your time travelling to buy ammo from your nearest gun dealer who has the type of ammo you require, especially if the dealer is some distance away and difficult to get to. I hope my comments may help. Jonty

    Supermatch Or Xx11 Prone Rifle Found

    I am intrigued about your reference for better ammo! What do you use now and what would you like to use. What disciplines do you intend to use it for and at what distances. There have been discussions on here of late about Eley Edge. Now that won't break the bank. It may be that you may buy expensive ammo that will not give you any advantage. Do I take it you are quite tall Tim, hence the decision to try to get a more adjustable stock. Jonty
  9. Yeah, Ive looked, theres nothing there that takes my eye. Jonty
  10. I think you did the perfectly correct thing in asking on the Forum about your rifle. Its one of the reasons its here. You even found at that the stock and to some extent the barrel and action are of later models than you thought they were. Great. Jonty
  11. I agree with Tim, the seller said he thought the stock was an 18 series, but after discussion it was identified as the more modern and more saleable 19 series. As Huey says, there's something going on here we are not being told about! As they saying goes, 'Either put up or shut up'. Jonty

    Cheek Piece

    I have a template for one drawn on paper. If your, or someone elses skills permit, I would try and make one from a piece of plastic which could be heated and bent/formed so it would look like the ones fitted to the G&E XRS stock. The ones fitted to the 2013 are plywood or laminate which are formed and machined. very difficult to copy, and very expensive to buy. They have a tendency to crack across where it is angled. A bit like the stock! Take care. Jonty
  13. Thanks for that Ark. I wont pursue one any further in that case. Tim, I acknowledge your greater knowledge, and accept that it swept up not back. I couldnt be sure, as I couldnt see it on the other side of the rifle when I shot it! Jonts
  14. olnmfc, It was the trigger unit Tim referred to, the part that is bolted to the action with the two small bolts, not the trigger guard. Tim, By swept back, I meant curved. I had a 2602 and a 2700 and they were both curved. Jonty
  15. B*gger, I remember now why I stopped gambling. Well done Tim (again). I didnt realise what Ark Fitz mentioned, that you can/could get the swept back handles to replace the ones on the 14 series. Has anyone got one for sale? Having said that, have things come full circle, as the Bleiker and i think the new FWB have straight handles. Jonty
  16. olnmfc, Could you please let us know what the stampings on top of the barrel are, we await with baited breath. (My money is it being an 1813) Jonty
  17. With the bolt having a swept back handle and removable knob, is it not an 18 series? Jonty
  18. Tim S, With the stock having slots on the foreend, is this a 19 series? Jonty

    Butt Plate Wanted

    Yes, but remember the £170 is just for the buttplate, you will need the vertical rod and mounting plate which are a further £55. I agree with your suggestion that the 4765 is better than the 4760, in my humble opinion anyway. Jonty

    Parts For Anschutz Match 54 Bolt

    Is that good 'Independant Financial Advice'? I thought the best advice was only borrow what you can afford, bearing in mind the interest rate is going up sooner or later. But we have or are coming out of recession, so we may have an extra pound a week in our pockets. Hmmmm I might be able to afford Eley Club again, bring it on. As an aside, I bought a bungalow in 2008, right at the top of the house prices just before the crash. I sold it last week, and its the first house I have ever sold at a loss. We had spent thousands on it, extention, Italian kitchen, re wire, re plumb you name it. All went as a loss, and we got just under the asking price too. Still, we are now the happy occupants of a hovel. Jonty

    Wanted - Full Bore Target Rifle

    What caliber and type are you looking for, There is a guy at our small bore club, who last year bought a new 'carbine type' smallbore and a fullbore rifle and then packed it all in! Would that be too new for you. I will contact him to find out its make and caliber. Regards Jonty
