im not too into the modifying buisness.
its all the big shiny blingy bits im not too keen on, its ok if its just a show rifle but whats the advantage of having a shiny brass trigger guard on a hunting rifle.

problem is im all game for trying to make my own bits and pieces, but there is only a certain amount of stuff i can do.

i dont know what i would change on my S410, me and barry have been talking about regulating our rifles in the future

I'm not into 'bling' either....all modifications for me have to have some sort of performance benefit....I never fit anything just for the sake of 'looks'.

ohh man .. a new project is better than nookie !  well maybe not , but in gambo's case the project lasts much longer ;)
or so his wife tells me
only standard rifle I have is a collectors item , everything else is modded .. heavily modded at that.

one very important factor in this NO BLING save that for the chavs.

not one of my hunting rifles look in good condition , all however are much more mechanicialy superiour than a new rifle.  Hunting rifles are tools, the less reflection from metal or a highly polished stock .. the better the results will be ;)

A scratched stock, is a hunters stock.

me and barry have been talking about regulating our rifles in the future

Do it .. seriously it will be the best money you could spend on the rifle , with massive improvements.   I can vouch for tweakys reg's

I enjoy project's and so far I've cut a thread on a barrel to fit a silencer (took a couple of attempts!) done a bit of reblueing, turned a scrap barrel down to fit a webley pistol. I've also made a few parts, fitted a reg, and done general servicing and a bit of modding to springers (guides/gas rams etc). I enjoy fiddling, and getting something to work as it should, its as enjoyable as shooting for me.
