  1. Sako Quad .17HMR - or action alone wanted

    Still looking for one with a 15" or 16" barrel preferred if there is life left in it.
  2. Sako Quad .17HMR - or action alone wanted View Advert Does anyone have a 17HMR Sako Quad varmint they are thinking about dumping, possibly nearing its shot out stage? I'm not much bothered about its visual condition. I currently have a spare HMR varmint barrel and sound mod on my ticket as a separate firearm that accompanies my 22lr Sako Quad, and rather like the idea of getting another action to make it a complete rifle as I constantly swap it between 22LR and HMR – with relative scope swaps too that usually needs a zero check and adjust. I have not yet put in for a variation to acquire another HMR but will be applying for one as a dedicated night vision rifle. Doing it this way would allow me to decide if I like it with the barrel it comes with – or my existing barrel which was replaced about two years ago when my original got shot out after about 7000 rounds. Apparently the Varmint barrel fitting spigot is a different size than heavy types. Game on chaps - who has a redundant .17HMR Sako Quad or action. I might be able to take one that was registered into the system as a .22 if you scrap it and sell it via an RFD - but that will depend on if that is permissable. Well done Leicester Firearms Licencing. I delivered the variation application by hand on Monday afternoon and the ticket with authority to acquire a .17HMR got here today.

  4. .22 Long accuracy

    RWS hollow points are seriously consitent in my Sako Quad, but have piss poor knock down effect on quarry because the tiny hollow is about as much use a chocolate fireguard.
  5. FAC licensing

    There's a bit more here: Changes to the Firearms Act 1968 From 14 July 2014, if a person receives a suspended sentence of 3 months or more they will not be able to purchase or possess a firearm or ammunition for a period of 5 years from the second day after sentence. From 14 July 2014, a person who has served or received a criminal sentence will not be able to possess an antique firearm. The prohibition applies to anyone who has served a custodial sentence of more than 3 years or has served a custodial sentence, or received a suspended sentence, of between 3 months and 3 years. Copied from about half way down the page here: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/firearms-licensing-police-guidance
  6. FAC licensing

    Found this: I'd suggest waiting a couple of years. Any person sentenced to serve between three months and three years, (or who has been given a suspended sentence of this duration) is prohibited from possessing any firearm for a period of five years.

    I think the SIA will have his ticket off him if they see the video and know who he is. He's seen to be well into the road rather than within the club boundary. I got told last week that security staff are not even allowed to restrain anyone now. My brother has a security patrol firm and keeps his guns at an RFD since his FEO advised him that if anyone makes a complaint he touched them they'd be round for his rifles.

    I find using minimal light is effective but most people seem to want much more than is needed for the particular range they are shooting at. Sure the back stop needs viewing sometimes but if your on a familiar venue that you know is safe then just enough is good enough. EDIT: dunno how this post got in this qouted bit

    I've been following this topic for a few hours... using a desktop PC and have concluded donators don't see ads because I have not seen one advert.

    That camera is even worse up the knob - they ram the huckin thing in and it has blood on it when it comes out.

    It was at a hard standing on the edge of a field next to a path where people park their cars to take dogs for a walk, so no surprise about boot or trainer marks there. I'm not saying its a dog or otherwise. So many people will think and what they want about it. I don't do dogs but was told they can't retract claws like cats - and I don't see any claws there. As said, I'm open minded and on the fence.

    it's normally kind of rolled back it's more evident on the few sheep carcasses I,ve seen, the deer are always just a head and shoulders left and the legs scattered around, just think how much shit I get if you got rubbished for saying you saw one once, don't worry about it I know what I saw and I,m on a mission to prove it, if your really honest with yourself you know what you saw, but it just seems to mental for your brain to accept what your eyes told it, I get the piss taken out of me constantly, but that just pushes me on, and from being like yourself I am now 100 percent that I will achieve what I,ve set out to do and get a full proof no questions case in a few more years if I can stay fit enough or have a good enough case I can pass on for someone else to finish if I don't make it, fact is often stranger than fiction remember Thank you greyman,. I went back next morning with a camera to where my brother and I saw it. Both of us were certain it was a black panther type animal - slightly taller and significantly longer than a full grown Labrador - with a longer thinner tail. I found this print there, placing the outers of the pads at 4". I think if the ground had been softer we'd be looking at a very much larger print. It may have been a print of the beast or may not.

    I'm a bit of a fence sitter on big cats have seen what I thought was one a few years ago and got rubbished a bit for saying so. On the half eaten carcass images - is it normal for a big cat to eat the skin? I don't see it stripped off anywhere.
