Re: Christmas Airgun Wishlist

As regards airguns I'd be very happy to find a working & unspoilt Airmatch 600 / 650 under the tree on Christmas morning. I sometimes wonder where my old one I p/x'd in the early 1990's ended up. It had a lovely aluminium trigger blade by Framar who were the distributors when I bought it 10 or more ...

Surely the factory test target date must be the most precise record you'll find for your pistol?

Checkmate guns

Is Checkmate guns still trading. I've had no reply from an email I sent; (time zone difference makes a phone call less preferable although I got no reply when I did call once recently)

Re:

I am planning to make a small run of the LP53 spring steel rear sight base/holder. I have to cost it all out to see what the price will be  - but if there is any interest, please let me know as the more I can cut/shape/temper and black at a time, the more it will reduce the cost of them.

Re: Incompetent airgunsmith + bad advice = one dead airgun.

What an awful story. A few years ago a friend to his an Air-Arms rifle to a butcher (sorry - respected airgun expert repairer) in the Middlewich area of Cheshire to have a larger silencer fitted. The gun was a beautiful one-off used by Air-Arms for publicity purposes, the walnut stock could have gra...

Walther CP1 - well travelled.

Some pistols just look as if they'll shoot tiny groups & this Walther CP 1 certainly did in a March 1982 advert. http://i1098.photobucket.com/albums/g362/webley700/CP1/1a98ef12bc5193fc0a07e4cf8c6eba8b.jpg A radical departure from the LP53, LP2, LP3 progression of rather 'upright' pistols which seeme...
