Give Dave Folwell a ring @ Bowtec,Westline ind est,Birtley 0191 4920077.He should be able to sort you out but he can be very busy so you may have to wait a week or so.

Sorry pal,

The whole myriad of reproofing after threading is a complete grey area,and some smiths recommend it,some don't.

I know James does a cracking job for what some may charge way over £100.

You could always post the rifle to him, or anyone you chose if distance is an issue,minus the bolt of course.
