    .22 WMR

    I have decided to go for a .22WMR after a great deal of deliberating and trying out my pal's 17HMR and we then have a selection of rifles between us including the .22LRs. The question :- what make / model guys. My thoughts are Anschutz or CZ but as always your experience and thoughts will be welcome. Phil

    .22 WMR

    I did look at ammo prices and providing I am not using 50gr, there is little to choose between 17HMR and 22WMR and I won't be using tons of ammo anyway. Phil

    .22 WMR

    Weihrauch...............................Now that is a new one on me, I had no idea they made anything other than air rifles, well well well I am awaiting my variation to come back which should be about another two weeks, just missed a s/h Anschutz buy watching the rfd stock closely. I think CZ will be the easiest to get hold of and best price. Ammo cost is a factor as I am retired so I pay enough out on my 12 gauge cartridges so I am not wanting another costly ammo and one of the reasons why I am not interested in centre fire. Phil

    BSF rifle

    My son in law has just been given a BSF Mod S60 spring air rifle which I think may be in the region of 30 years old and made in Germany west as printed on the gun. Anyone have any info on these. I will get some photo's and post them on here. Phil

    BSF rifle

    I have been trying to suggest what a load of old crap these rifles are but I will spend some time and money on it and it might be worth £25 after. He is not biting .............................................. bugger. Phil

    Nice one RFB, time and trouble have produced an interesting result. If you are interested in taking it a stage further, I can send you some JSB selection and AA field which are again JSB made. PM me your address if you want to test some. Phil

    Anshultz 1417 outing

    I keep seeing these thumbhole stocks which is really making me want to take my crappy beech stock off and get one of these. I might find something at the game fair. Phil

    New toy

    Well not only did I buy the Tracer torch, light as a feather and what a beam but now bought a Nitesite Wolf at a recent shooting show for £319 new. The stand were selling all three models for Nitesite at super prices and selling loads of them. Anyway, I am well pleased with the Wolf, just need the dark nights back again. My wolf and the Tracer I recon is on a par with the Eagle although to be honest I doubt I will ever need to use the Tracer now. Phil

    I like these Jimmy, I think you may get quite a few orders mate. Phil

    starting yours tomorrow Mark

    Looking really good Jimmy but how and where am I going to fit one on my Impact ???? These will make quite a statement on any rifle other than mine. Phil

    BSF rifle

    I actually got a quick look at the rifle in question last night but was on my way out so didn't have time to play with it. The wood is spot on with no rough treatment showing at all but the metalwork is in need of a little TLC as there is some rust spots on quite a bit of it. This is not however a rustbucket by any means and a few wipes with steel wool, will remove the rust spots easily. Now the next step for my son in law is to give the rifle to me.............................well I doubt that will happen so I need to look for cold 'bluing' repair solution. Can anyone point me in the right direction please. When I get hold of the gun to play with, I will check FPE/FPS and get a couple of photos to post up on here. Phil
  21. I think this method may be local to you Jimmy as I asked for a pal at two rfd's in my area but neither did a staggered payment system. Phil

    FAC Inbound, time to shop

    My 1417 using a SAK and RWS subs is almost totally silent, you are not using HV ammo are you as that is louder. Phil

    My FX Royale 400

    No question about it Ian, many people simply do not realise just how capable fac air rifles are and I will add my Impact .25 fac to that. To be honest, the Impact will do everything my rimfire will do providing it is not too windy. Phil

    Impact

    I take your point regarding tree top shooting but the real beauty of the Impact is that it takes a second to take the power down to what you want but don't bother with poor quality pellets when you are buying (or possibly thinking of buying) an expensive gun like the Impact. If I can go from 25 - 47fpe using the main power dial, then you will not have any issues using a decent pellet and tuning the power to what you are happy with.

    Kral NP02

    To be honest, I assumed the guns in question were relatively new but not certain. As you say, not a lot of dosh so take the punt if you fancy it. Phil
