The pictures don't really do it justice. It really is stunning. Immaculate condition.

Cheers,

Andy

I had a blue one exactly the same, great rifle probably the best AA ever produced with all the boxes ticked. Good thing was that you just got it out of the box and shot it and the only thing that ever went wrong with mine was one of the trigger return springs rusting after a KW downpour.

No, it was definitely pink, not as pink as Harry's but certainly a bit too far past burgundy to be comfortable with....:rolleyes:

Agreed, it just needs to be left exactly as stock, no 8 balls, no bling, nothing.

If they ever dreamt up a 'classic' grade of FT where you had to use original kit from a particular era, this for the 90's and an immaculate 2002 would do for the 2000's.

It has the same adjustable butt as mine. Steve Lannyman told me AA only made 180 from the factory with those.

Nothing falls off a PT. let's see all these modern guns reach 20+ years

Probably, but then as you're fond of saying ownership of a fine rifle is every bit as important as shooting it.
