      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.

Got a TX mark 1 knocking around some where, found the back block outside after 6 years now resides in coolant tray on lathe.

Not the sort of rifle you would take out, its a show piece.

 

Still got my BSA Goldstar as well and an Original 52.

 

Could get No2 up and running again or finish off No3, 4 and 7 if they havent rotted away.

Yep still got my first FT rifle. A titan manitou second hand from Sandra Curtis. Dig it out every year for a club memorial shoot we do for Ron Crawford.

I dont have my old Shamal any more but I do have a pair of Daystate Mk1 Huntsman. One bought from Ron Crawford and the other from Chris Sams, both were members of Iceni from pretty much its start.

Yes, I would, especially as I've tracked down the bit to fix it! It was going to be a surprise!
