We will be having a 'BRING & BUY' stall. Bring along anything airgun related that you want to flog and we will sell it for you and charge a small percentage (5%) which goes to charity. :dance:

Re: R.R. Airgun Collectors Fair. Sat. 13th August '16

Thanks for posting. Sounds like an excellent event, and many bargains are usually to be had. Just a couple of queries:- 1 - Given the current terrorism alerts, is a straight forward passport all that's needed, or are Visas required 2 - Are inoculations wise 3 - Is it still an offence not to wear cl...

Re: SOLD UP !!

The LOV21 gets my vote to! :D With a bit of tinkering - well, theres ony a few screws keeping the simple thing together, a bit of basic lubing and you have a very capable pistol. The trigger is brill for such a cheapie. I got mine for less than £100 brand new. The other week I scored a 47 ex 50 (sin...

Re: FAS 6004 - arrival imminent.

Just as an after thought - would it be possible to take a photo of the back sight elevation screw hole on a non grey import next time you (or anyone else)is working on one. I would love to see how they have resolved this issue. :pray:

Thanking you in advance. :dance:

Re: FAS 6004 - arrival imminent.

It wasn't for bad luck - I wouldn't have any luck at all. :doh: I had a rocking horse that died. :whistle: Have you actually examined the elevation screw hole on an 'official' import FAS6004? If so, what is the difference in diameter? The one I had was only 2mm (steel threaded rod into alloy :naught...

Re: FAS 6004 - arrival imminent.

To be fair Ian, I think you were the only one to get this pistol with 2mm threads. I have modified a couple now (for disabled shooters and I mean no pun) and they are well made bits of kit. I think you were unlucky and in fairness yours was a grey import. No, it was definitely black with a brown wo...

Re: FAS 6004 - arrival imminent.

Update : My local friendly retailer :dance: got in contact with the importers with regards to my pistol. They wanted the whole top assembly back (the alloy one which the sight adjusting screw fits into). I had no confidence in this class of engineering (2mm steel thread into alloy :naughty: :hand: ...

Re: FAS 6004 - arrival imminent.

I had eagerly awaited the arrival the arrival of the new FAS6004 for the past few months. Initial impressions were very good after I had taken a bit of creep out of the trigger with good groupings and a score of 47 ex 50 within the first ten cards :dance: but the point of impact over 10m was too hig...

Re: HW35 Venom from 1970..

Hakko scopes - IIRC they produced the range of scopes for Optima (of Bolton) and they were very good and still much sought after. :clap:
