Yep - the 80 is off at the gun shop having its innards re-arranged which will take a few weeks apparently  :(. And hopefully the last slot will be filled Wednesday. Then I'm done. Unless I can find a nice FWB Sport  ;)

Its just my local gun shop - Emmet & Stone near Marlow. Not a tune up or anything exciting, just a service and replacement of the crusty 40 year old bits. I'm curious to see what sort of a job they do though. I may have them do some work on the Stutzen I have coming next week. Unless anyone knows of someone who specialises in BSAs?

Have to get another rack first! I'd love a Theoben Sirocco and a FWB Sport, though that might end up in divorce!

Drat......You beat me to it!!!



I always hankered after a Scirocco too, as they were the ultimate tool of choice back when I was young, and all the top shooters/scribes from Airgun World magazine had them.

I few years later I was loaned one for a week....and what a disappointment it was. Harsh to shoot, VERY VERY kicky, with a nasty heavy trigger action. For some reason, I stopped wanting one after that! ::)

Really? That's interesting. I've never used one but I had thought the whole gas ram thing was supposed to be smoother.

Newer, more modern Theoben 'rammers' (ones called H.E.) are much better, but the early models were shockingly nasty.

In theory they should be smoother, but in reality, they were just Harsh, in BOLD, underlined, and with with a capital H.
