    The Gimp ?

    They should not have been allowed in the first place. What were they thinking?!
  2. It's the time of year Holly, you can still get cold mornings but the afternoon sun is starting to get pretty hot. It still surprises me more scopes aren't made in silver rather than black. I never saw it but a guy at Bisley had Hydrographics do a loupe in Canon camera lens colours complete with the red ring. I bet that looked good and kept a bit cooler in the summer.

    Air Bottle Tests ?

    I think the answer is to drop the limit to 6ft lbs then we could use single stroke pneumatics like the old 10m guns! :-)

    Any ideas

    Give the barrel a clean and check the crowning.

    Walther LG400FT Anyone?

    Must be a mocked up photo, It's not unusual for them to do it. Or indeed airbrush in/out details.

    Walther LG400FT Anyone?

    How was it done?

    Single stroke .

    Sorry, I didn't mean more accurate. I should have said more consistent!

    Single stroke .

    I saw this a while back. If the stroke on that is accurately fixed could it not be more accurate than a PCP with a reg, shot to shot?

    Channel 4 The Gun shop

    Yes I'm recording it as well.
  11. I found my Wax cotton jacket quite supportive in winter. Just worn with the appropriate other "layers" as required.

    DSW

    FT is in some ways "virtual hunting" for want of another term. I wonder what its future is if real hunting adopts sophisticated optical systems in the not too distant future. Of course by then air weapons will likely be on ticket anyway.

    DSW

    I've only just seen RE's DSW. Clever piece of kit with lots of functions. Now if S&B were any good at all they would have built this into a scope by now! lol.

    Schmidt & Bender

    I do remember the lengthy delays. Wasn't there a mk2 model?
  15. I was going through some old stuff today and came across the July 2007 issue of Target Sports. Inside is a two page review of the S&B FT scope by Tim Finley. The article gives the scope a very good review, with the final words "l'm confident that it is set to dominate the (FT) scene for decades to come". So, what happened? I ask because I probably haven't shot FT since this review came out but I seem to remember some of the usual characters moaning about it. ;-)
