      VCR Bill

      Since the introduction of the "latest" VCR bill on 1st October 2007, sales of AIRGUNS (including replicas) AND MAJOR COMPONENTS (barrels, cylinders etc.) by DEALERS is restricted to a face-to-face transaction.   Please ensure you are familiar with the changes brought about due to the VCR act, which may be viewed on the BASC website.   BASC and ACPO have produced a guide to the VCR act in PDF format, which avoids legalese and is very understandable. See HERE.   AirGunForum members must ensure their transactions conform with current legislation before posting.   An inter-dealer network to facilitate the continuation of mail order business is being established by Portland Jon. Details are HERE or direct to his website HERE.

      The forum's EDIT function has been changed. After making your post, you will have 30 minutes to review and edit it. After that, only Admin will be able to make edits.   Should a post NEED to be edited afterwards, email to admin@airgunforum.net the change details, the URL of the thread it applies to and if appropriate, the reason for the change. Don't forget to identify yourself and do use your registered email address to make contact. All this is necessary, as admin must be able to identify who you are and that it is your post that you wish to edit.   Admin. will make the edit if it appears necessary. Note, if you want to change something that could easily be achieved by adding a further post to the thread, you will be expected to do it.   Forum staff generally view new posts added to threads since their last visit. If a "for sale" item has been sold or a wanted item has been obtained, just add a post to the thread and it will usually be noted and the thread title will be edited appropriately. This saves members' time wading through posts that are effectively "dead".   DaveL

£250 seems to be the going secondhand rate for one of them. Thats how much i paid hated it was an understatement and sold it the following day. :)

Horses for courses, mate. I had a 10-50x60 BSA and couldn't fault it (other than the fact that it was too big to put on any other gun apart from an FT rig.. :0 )

 

I found the rangefinding was easy but I did have to get a custom sidewheel put on it to allow greater differential between 40 and 55 yrd ranges.

 

Aint got it now, gone back to basics with a 3-9 x 52/44 (one of those EXP things)

 

All the best

Gary - I have used several FT scopes and I find the Big BSA to be spot on.

 

My scope has the Ian Taylor Side Wheel extension and it is fantastic for ranging out to 60 yards.

 

Negative comments I have heard are that the quality can vary from scope to scope, the turrets are only 1/8th MOA and some people don't like the crosshair (thin lines + single dot in centre).

 

If you haven't bought a scope by the TD shoot then you can have a look through mine and give it a try.

 

Dave.
