    Thank you David for answering one of my queries...I have found that ISSF though does cover "10m Five Shot Air Pistol" which is on a similar principle but the targets do not turn.  They do however have a requirement to be spaced at 300mm centers perhaps (psm17h) could let me know what the spacing is on this unit?

    Many thanks to all for your input/assistance.

    Given that the PA10 unit was specifically designed to replicate the same arc as the 25m Rapid Fire targets but at 10m then that should be fine. Also if you watch the first YouTube video with the 10m Air Pistol targets mounted you will be able to work it out. They are of course 170mm wide.

  2. You might wish to approach it a little differently. What would it be worth in its original stock and does the owner still have that stock? Now, what is the premium for the Ultra stock and what would that stock fetch if sold separately?

     

    I have a feeling that barrel and action in original stock + Ultra sold separately might yield a bit more.

  3. Carol,

     

    Hotfoot is correct. You should read the "pinned" thread at the top of the for sale section. There are plenty of places on the internet where you may determine the price being asked for a 1907 stock. Whether the finish makes any difference; plus or minus; is your call, but ultimately the market will decide.

     

    If you do wish to sell it on here, you should state your asking price and the methods of payment.

    but I believe an RFD would reproof after re-chambering

     

    Tim that was from personal experience. When I collected the barrel I signed a declaration that I was aware that it required to be offered for proof should i subsequently decide to sell or dispose of it for other than scrap. As it was I took it to the Birmingham Proof House myself; as you could in those days; because it was more convenient than sending it there. However you are probably correct in that most gunsmiths would have it re-proofed to be on the safe side and ensure that they had discharged; and exceeded; their duty of care.

    OK, I normally only deal with these things from the commercial side, hadn't appreciated that personal imports were different. That's daft!

     

    Illogical it may be, but that's the way it is. If you had a barrel re-chambered (physical alteration to a pressure bearing component) or fitted a new barrel you would not have to have the barrel re-proofed unless you sold it. However it's no more illogical than the Proof House proposal a few years ago that all barrels should undergo periodic re-proof. I cannot see the point in carrying out a potentially destructive test when there are now a number of non-destructive alternatives available that would only involve a standard load.

     

    As TimS noted, with CIP one does wonder why we need to continue with national testing.

  6. Merjp,

     

    As TimS says, we don't discuss price here as it can lead to all sorts of unwelcome complications. But, as Squishy has indicated there are so many factors to be taken into account that it is extremely difficult anyway. Another important factor is availability and demand. There may well be more available in Surrey than say Caithness and there could be fewer buyers in Northern Ireland than Birmingham. At the end of the day it's worth what you agree with the seller.
