Sako, it is built bar the cleaning port, I will cut that in bright and early and get it mailed out then it is back to the work at hand, I have some F/Tr bipods to get built plus OAL gauges and comparators plus a couple of unusual projects that need kicking off over the next day or two, plus all the usual stuff. I have a horrible feeling the SHED is going to be cited in more than one divorce case before the decade is over... Luckily my wife is equally passionate about the things we make, she is not quite as impressed with the number of bits her rifle is in right now...
Sounds like you've got your hands full but behind every great man is a great woman and by the sounds of the hours you work she's got to be!
I would say don't rush with my guide but it seems like you already have. I look forward to trying it out, thank you for a great service
On another note I haven't dirtied my barrel, got all my kit out, opened the door and it was raining so I haven't bothered going

My wife has an aversion to rain when it comes to taking her rifles out, a cloud in the same time zone will see her removing her jacket to cover the rifle. Me, well I just hunker down and keep shooting however I do tend to shoot plastic stocked things which work well in extremes and with obscure makes of 7,62x51.

Even my wood stocked rifles get 'hammered' in the rain if need be but I too have the plastic stocked jobbies with stainless barrels for extreme conditions although I must admit like your wife I've seen myself covering scopes and lasers with my coat just to get a clear pic for that important shot and get wet myself .
Got your email about the bore guide being on it's way David, wow that was quick Thank you, I'll let you know how it performs

Trouble is I think I've started something, all my plastic bore guides now look rubbish in comparrison and I can see them needing an upgrade now
Top product, well done David

superb bit of kit. is the stainless steel fine with copper cleaner and other fluids atb jamie
Funny enough that is the exact question I asked before I bought it as I was worried about false colouring on patches, David from the shooting shed assured me he'd been using it for years and it wasn't an issue. There might be a slight discolouring on the patch for the first initial pass or so but once clean there's no problem whatsoever.
