Child’s shotgun

Recommended Posts

We picked up a new single shot Yildiz 410 for our youngest.  Got the gunsmith to fit it, chop the stock down a little and found it a super wee first gun.  The accuracy needed with the 410 has taught him some great discipline - and handily it folds down into my game jacket pocket so I now have it as a close-in shottie when out on the rabbits with a rifle ;o)

He’s got the kofs 28g o/u

I wish you luck with it for the lad.

My local gunshop bought a load of Kofs in various calibres (but not 28 gauge).

A lot of lads in my game syndicate bought 410s from him because we have a charity 410 day every year. The proceeds of which go to a local kids hospice. It's a couple of grand each year.

Unfortunately most had missfire problems, which was resolved by shortening the firing pin spring, this was only on 410 variants by the way. So if it starts playing up maybe suggest to the rfd a probable cause and fix.

It the boys birthday tomorrow and I’ve picked him up a new 28g kofs youth stock with 26in barrels. Other than some real nasty nails, seconded hand o/u youth stock 28g weren’t much less than a new one after having to either drive to collect or have it transferred. I also want it to be something he would take pride in owning. 

I also picked my self up a small present

AYA #4, just because I liked it, and it wasn’t lots of money 😁

 

Same shotgun I’ve got Dave

@FLATTOP nice 👍🏻 your stock looks in better condition than mine. 

Seems like a lot of gun for the money. Looking forward to giving it a go. 

There not a bad gun 26” barrels 1/4 and Imp choke and ejector I think I paid £240 for mine a couple of years ago privately.

Good luck with it.

My boys shoot with a KOFS 28 bore and have shot some cracking birds with it! For the price I don't think you can go wrong, but the cartridges are not cheap.

Good shooting.

Yeah, the cartridges aren’t cheep but he gets tired after 25 so shouldn’t be to bad for the moment 👍🏻

I have found that top leaver is quite stiff and clunky, hopefully it’ll loosen up over time.

I got it as I just fancied one, and at £195 I couldn’t say no 😂
