Re: FB Record Jumbo

Finally managed to get enough parts to service the Jumbo, so that's a success, many thanks to the guys who supplied me with spares, but again thanks to the efforts of a member on another forum, I have been given contact details for the existing company dealing in things ''record''. I have sent a par...

Re: Diana Model 6 Cutaway

WOW!!!! I don't understand much German but the history article was truly fascinating, the photos themselves tell a powerful story. The cutaway Mod. 6 is indeed excellent and being able to still operate it, says much about the person who did the machining; I have a cutaway starting pistol from the We...

Re: Proof Marks on a Webley mk3

I have now come across several proof marked MKIII's. It is assumed by the proof house that they were marked for export use as some countries required it. It seemed strange at first as the gun is a tap loader so couldn't fire live ammo.; even stranger is the BP proof mark, which if you go to the Birm...

Re: Lost My Marbles??

Zunmik, I had treatment in the form of painkillers for two years plus for Arthritis, only to find out I had an overgrown piece of bone on the top of the ''cup'' part of my shoulder joint, which trapped the cartilage and caused excruciating pain and reduced mobility; I had an operation called an '' e...

Weihrauch 45

Hi guys, posted on other sites, but, I have just done a service on a HW 45 pistol and as I haven't handled one in years, I suddenly noticed an 'oddity', in most 'normal' springers the main spring guide is at the cylinder end plug end of the mainspring; but in the '45' the guide is in the mainspring ...

BELL TARGETS

Hi guys, just posted in Bell Target section; my mini collection of Bell targets, sadly in copying they have been jumbled up, so are not in correct order, It appears that if you click on the thumbnail to the right of the main image, a second album is shown, these seem to be in correct order and will ...

BELL TARGETS

Sorry, not yet got round to taking decent pics of my friends retro bell target but I posted photos of my own mini collection elsewhere and thought it may be of interest to APA members also. Just viewed the download and it seems the photos are jumbled up, if you look to the right of the main image th...

Chronograph from Holland

Posted on other forums , but I feel such good service, cost and price are worth passing on wherever possible. I recently ordered an R2 chrono from MH Schietsport. Netherlands. The chrono is Polish made, very compact and having placed it in front of a Scan chrono and shot through both at the same tim...

Re: Christmas Fairguns.

Absolutely fabulous; I don't know if council permission or any other permission was needed, but congratulations to whoever said yes; nice to know your local police force [who must have been very aware of it] didn't give any problems to the stallholder, presumably with no one being shot to death with...

Re: Predom Lucznic

Jeff hi; I can't go anywhere near Certus' reply which is fascinating reading. I like many of my ream mates in the 70's bought the pistol thinking , as it was a dead ringer copy of a Walther LP53, we would be on to a good thing, the pistol was known locally only as the 'Predom' and everyone new what ...

Re: Intro fro South devon

Welcome Tony, age is irrelevant in this sport / pastime but I do admire a 'senior' shooter who re-enters the sport; [from a young and actively competing 71 year old]; you are in superb company here, I still own an earlier Mod 6, but have been happy to have owned Mod's 5 from the wooden grip one to t...

Re: FWB80 trigger

I have had the same conversation with several other pistol shooters who seem to have the same problem, I recently had occasion to work on a Mod 80 and to my surprise I couldn't get a two stage trigger either. I went through the manual which gives Mod 65 adjustments in great detail, but not so much f...
