    STILL WAITING

    Hi Perhaps a phone call to the office? I called regarding a query with my FAC and SGC during the process, the query was sorted and I was told it will be about 3 more weeks before getting tickets. Received ticket next day!! Total 27 days start to finish. So sometimes it does go ok, but worth that call Rav
  5. Hi Ravanelli,

    Have a look at the Edgar Bros. Optimate scopes, they are a no nonesense Japanese made scope and are great value for money, you will also be able to buy a Leupold rifleman or VX1 scope new for your budget, made in the US and a quality scope, I have one on my .17, before that I had a Bushnell banner, and it was excellent too, 2nd hand German scopes are an option too. Rega...

    new FAC and SGC

    Hi yeah it does say BARREL............. My fault as I mentioned during interview that I am considering Sako Quad with 17HMR and 22WMR barrels. So net result is I can buy ANY 17HMR................if I want the 22WMR I can only buy the barrel..............and to the best of my knowledge a 22WMR barrel will only fit on a Sako Quad. Think this is what is called a catch 22 !! Rav
  8. Hi Another positive vote for Essex old bill firearms licence office. Sent application on March 21. Got FAC and SGC on April 30. By my calculations, taking into account the recent bank holidays, thats 27 working days. Pretty good I'm sure you'll agree. So have now got tickets for: A) 17HMR rifle B)Sound Mod for same C)22WMR Barrel D)Sound mod for same E)Semi-auto shotgun on FAC ticket F)Shotgun on SGC G)Various ammo. So as you can see plenty to keep me going. The only thing that I require help from is the situation with the 22mag barrel. This is on there because I thought it was a reasonable idea to buy a Sako Quad in 17HMR and then another barrel option, in this case the 22WMR. FEO agreed this to carry out fox control. After FEO interview I thought it would state under my conditions that I had to purchase the Sako Quad, but it doesnt, it just says 17HMR rifle,but if I want to have a 22WMR capability I can only purchase a barrel, which is then put on the quad. I cannot buy another make of rifle on its own in 22mag. That is to say I can buy SAKO QUAD with those 2 barrels if I wish. Should I buy SAKO in 17HMR giving me the option to get the 22WMR barrel to use also, or disregard the fact that I have 22mag altogether, allowing me to buy any make of 17HMR? By the way I dont have an issue with the fact that a barrel change means further zeroing. Hope this isnt completely confusing. Any advice would be welcome. Thanks for reading RAV

    scope

    Very new to this ............so hopefully will benefit from your experience. Have used an air rifle until few months ago fitted with Hawke 3-9x50. Thought it was pretty good for 30 yard pigeons etc.... But NOW............... ready to get new .17HMR (NOT SURE MAKE/MODEL YET) and have set budget at £300 FOR THE SCOPE Have seen Hawke HK4010 6-24X56 MILDOT and Hawke HK4014 8-32X56 MILDOT at local shop for £262 and £287 respectively. Any good? Or should I spend the 300 quid on another make/model ? Regards Rav

    £250 budget

    Thanks for all the replies so far. I had conversation with firearms department today.............turns out I am not restricted to the Sako Quad............it just states....17 HMR ( amongst other bits and pieces) on the paperwork. So it looks as though I can buy any make/model as long as its .17hmr......... That makes it a little easier to pick one I suppose Regards Rav

    £250 budget

    Hi all Slowly getting there with decisions about what to buy. One question to all of the much more experienced users on here................ Will be getting Sako Quad in 17 HMR.............. What scope please (rabbiting and corvids) on a budget of 250 quid (ish) ? Regards Rav
  14. Hi all Well finally had visit from FEO. All went well. Had original and copies of signed permissions, detailed maps of area covered ( approx 3 to 4 thousand acres!)new BASC membership details and approved brattonsound 6 gun cabinet and seperate large ammo safe all fitted accordingly. So that was a good start. After about an hour of very friendly chat and advice from FEO I have been authorised the following: 1.SAKO QUAD .17 HMR. 2.Barrel in .22 WMR for above quad. 3.Suitable expanding ammo. 4.Semi auto shotgun (self-loading type not pump action....my choice) ON THE F.A.C. so can get multi shot (more than 2 plus 1). 5.Any standard shotgun on seperate shotgun cert. 6.Sound mods suitable for the .17HMR and .22WMR. So pretty pleased and in about 2 weeks should have ticket. Whole process will have been approx 40 days. Just a quick question if I may.................Have I sort of limited my choice of RIFLE by stating 'I quite like the SAKO QUAD' ? I assume I have to stick with that make and model unless I get it changed to another .17/.22 before my ticket arrives ? FEO said I could have a 22-250 if I wanted. Your thoughts would be appreciated Cheers Rav
  15. Hi all there certainly appears to be discrepancies between police forces. My first time application for SGC and FAC last month has resulted in the 2 calibres I wanted for small bore rifles AND being allowed a semi auto on FAC for pigeon control. Add to this a standard SGC also......... My research over the last few months reveal the firearms law in this country needs 'looking into'. By the way my permissions (letters,maps,signatures) cover a huge area right on my doorstep
