  1. Where abouts are you please Adam?
  2. As Kalibrgun says, It's a standard 2250, The XL I believe should have the Crosman steel breech that has dovetails cut in for a scope to attach instead of pro blocks.. The top one has the XL breech.. Good luck with the sale, They're smashin guns ? John ?
  3. Hi Adam The saw is actually a scroll saw, A kind 9of electric fret saw and brilliant little machines! GLWTS.
  4. Here's a couple more that I recently acquired, When my mate bought the mk3, I asked for first refusal if he decided to sell it!! ? The stock on the Webley mk3 was reworked by the late Don Robinson of Halifax and is the nicest Mk3 stock I ever recall having! John ?
  5. I have a 97 that had a Vmach kit fitted, It came with the old bits that were removed, Have to say it's a dream to shoot, maybe the kits don't suit the FWB mk2 as thay have a massively long mainspring inside?, I've never had FWB rifle so don't really know ? Some years ago I bought a TbT drop in kit for a HW35e that I have which is really graunchy, I put it away then forgot where I put it!, It's still not been fitted to the rifle!! John ?
  6. Hi If you pull the underlever back then look on the underside of the machined down cylinder where the barrel enters you'll see a proper serial with two prefix letters, If the gun is a .22 then it will start with G, This cylinder is GJ which means a mk5, If yours is .177" cal then the prefix will start with 'E'.. When you've found the prefix letters, Look HERE to find out the production dates from the letters.. By the way, If you get some wire wool and soak it with 3 in 1 oil and give ten mins rubbing, It will look a lot better ? This is an old mk2 that I was gi
  7. I looked in my Thrale book of Webley rifles and there's a pic of one the same (Without the stock mods!), The one in the book says it's a Supertarget but mine doesn't say Supertarget on the cylinder, Just the normal stuff that's pressed in to the steel! I was told that the mk3 could be specially ordered back in the day with Parker Hale target sights as an extra, I presume this was the case with mine ? Cheers, John ?
  8. I bought a couple more! I fell for this Webley mk3 when my mate showed it to me and asked for first refusal if he ever decided to shift it on! .177" cal, Factory fitted Parker Hale PH16m aperture sights and the stock was reworked by the late Don Robinson of Halifax! I threw a few pellets downrange on monday, It really whacks those targets!! Also acquired this Cadet Major from the same mate, I refinished the stock a few years ago for him! John
  9. It is Tats, Had most of my working life in the foundry! John ?
  10. That's a nice view ?? This used to be my view but I took redundancy late last year and don't have to go any more!! ? That's me with my back to the camera with the silver coloured helmet on, Had 42 years of the foundry, Was ready to pack in as I got a dose of (I think) covid early last year, I'm asthmatic and have copd but since then I can't even get up the stairs in one go!! Still have three years til my oap but everything's paid off so can take it easy now!! I was cleaning the downgates on a 70t ladle here, My mate must have been off as he used to do
  11. I had a wander round my local bootsale last week and picked a few bits up.. Got this book for two quid, There's more swords in it than the parson preached about! Was told to look it up on Amazon, Cheapest was £231 ? I also picked up eight squeeze clamps, The book on it's own weighs ridiculous and with the clamps in the same bag my fingers were almost purple by the time I got to the car!! They open to around 8" and were a quid each! Two of them are missing a plastic jaw each but still useable.. And a li'l pocket scope for a couple
  12. I recently bought a set of EPNS Kings pattern cutlery off facey marketplace for £20!, Don't look like they've been used but were tarnished, I spent two hours polishing them then chucked em all in the sink with loads of fairy bubbly water, Stuck me hand in and sliced the tip of me finger! Also sent payment today for a watch, It's the brand that everyone loves to hate!- Invicta!! ? It was bought new in december last year, The chap had the mineral glass crystal replaced with a domed sapphire type..It comes with the bracelet too as the chap removed it to fit
  13. Is the chap called David?, It's a coincidence but I have a friend inWales that was selling his HW55t (Think it's gone now though) Just looked through my messages, He wanted £500 for the HW55 with the correct aperture sight apparently, He sold it though ? John ?
  14. Just when I decided I wasn't buying any more guns, My mate phoned up- He always knew I admired this Anschutz mod 250 Match so I brought it home with me!! It had been on his wardrobe since the late 90's when he bought it! but it turned out that the seals in the damper unit had perished and the Dexron ATT fluid had wept out!, I have to order the seals when I get the chance as it will damage the gun badly if used! Apparently, The Anschutz aperture sight that came on the gun was plastic, This one is all metal and came off an Annie Rimfire, Much more solid ? I real
