Things do seem to be conspiring agianst us to make life a little tricky right now. In particular we seem to have stepped back in time regarding imports from the USA as the time it is taking to obtain US Export Licenses for our shipments has gone back to a couple of months at least whereas for the past few years this time has been closer to a couple of weeks! A dealer colleague has just tis afternoon told us he has only recently received a license which his US exporter applied for five months ago! Naturally this has impacted on our business and we are currently awaiting quite a variety of items including Magpul's latest all singing and all dancing chassis system for the Remington 700 short action.

The other (long term) issue remains Roger's health and he is currently recuperating after undergoing heart surgery in Sheffield ten days ago and we are most grateful to the friends, colleagues and customers who have passed their good wishes to him for a speedy recovery. Unfortunately Roger was assuming that he would come home after the surgery and be running up and down the stairs ..... sadly we now know this is NOT what should happen, and althought the surgery itself was successful the bad news is that the symptoms (predominantly extreme tiredness and breathlessness) are not likely to disappear for some time, even a few months. There is hopefully a positive side to this situation as although he can only work at the bench for a few hours each day he should be able to find time to get our new website up and running as he can of course sit down at the computer to do this. We are very much looking forward to this as the new site will feature e-commerce so we will be able to extend our virtual opening hours for mail order to a 24/7 scenario which will help us in our fight against old age and poor health! More importantly you will be able to access loads of items you don't even realise we offer to shooters!


The latest batch of .357 Model 1894 Marlin ever action rifles looks to be of the quality we used to see some years ago before the factory started experiencing manufacturing difficulties. We now have several in stock, fully tuned and slicked and looking for new homes! We have placed back orders with the UK importers for several of the new models, some of which are expected in the New Year. You are welcome to add your name to our list of interested purchasers but we do not ask for money up front or even a deposit. Any order placed at this time does not place you under any obligation to purchase from us when the rifles are delivered to us in the future.

We are pleased to tell you that twenty more receivers and bolts went to the Proof House two weeks ago
and we will be collecting them next Wednesday 30th May so it won't be too long before we can complete our list of orders for Rimfire Magic rifles and have around ten further spare units ready to build more rifles which we can have available off the shelf!

More good news is that we have received a large Magpul order and now have plenty of the X-22 stocks here for the Ruger ® 10/22® rifle at £140 each.


Many of you may not be aware that it's not just rimfire rifles and other modern firearms we have here. Roger has been establishing a small collection of obsolete firearms more intended as a hobby than part of our business. The majority of these guns fall under Section 58 of the Firearms Acts which means that they may be purchased and owned by most people without any form of certification or licence. Although we have decided to offer some of these firearms for sale they are sold solely as antiques or curios and MUST NOT be fired unless they are entered on the shooters FAC for that purpose. However if this is done it will be strictly at the shooters risk! Sadly Roger's health has now deteriorated so much that, very reluctantly, he has decided that he can no longer enjoy competitive shooting but can enjoy shooting some of these "old timers" and they offer a whole new world of enjoyment and satisfaction. With this in mind you may like to visit our "obsolete calibres" page to see what is available. We have listed many of these antique rifles and will try to expand this page as quickly as possible to include photographs and prices.  We hope this provides some interest to a few of our customers. Please note that we do not claim to be experts in this field and whilst we will do our best to fairly describe these guns we appreciate that many of you will know far more about them than we will ever know!



Available right now we have the Sport model at £675 and Performance Centre version at £875. All rifles have been lubricated and test fired and are ready for shooting! Meanwhile we have a further batch back from Proof with more of the Sport and Performance Centre rifles but also some Magpul MOE-SL rifles too which are on offer at £720



Apparently there were some problems with earlier production rifles which whereby occasionally the extractor would go AWOL during use. Volquartsen Custom now offer a modified extractor which we have in stock at £15 each. We can fit one for you on request and our tests show that they tend to throw fired cases a lot further from the rifle than when used to replace the factory part.



For callers at our shop we have just received a large delivery of .22 rimfire ammunition including the following types. Prices are shown per 1,000 but smaller quantities are priced pro rata:

CCI Minimag £98.00      CCI Standard velocity £78.00      CCI Blazer  £65.00     CCI Subsonic HP £110

CCI Subsonic Segmented bullet  £175.00      CCI Velocitor 40gn  £170.00      Lapua SK Plus  £110.00

Federal Hypervelocity 31gn  £110         Remington Golden high velocity  £65.00


With around 650 of our Rimfire Magic rifles now sold we have constantly sought to improve the performance and reliability of our flagship product. So we are pleased to announce a couple of upgrades which are now available as options in the receiver unit which is of course the core of the rifle. Firstly we have the latest Competition bolt manufactured by Power Custom in the US which is CNC machined to give the correct headspace of .044" and the rear of the bolt is slightly radiused for easier cocking and smoother cycling.  A titanium firing pin is retained by a pin to assist in preventing the pin from rising away from the rim of the cartridge , it also has the correct firing protrusion at the rear of the bolt to help aid consistent ignition.
Finally a titanium extractor is tuned and installed which helps with both extraction of fired cases and feeding of live rounds. For the immediate future we are only supplying this part as an option when building a rifle. Whilst we are looking at offering this bolt as a replacement part this idea is hampered in that is is deemed to be a controlled part of a firearm and as such cannot be supplied by mail order and in theory would require a variation on the shooter's FAC. Please see our "build list" page for price.

The use of a rotary magazine in rifles such as the Ruger® 10/22® has for many years made a last shot hold open function difficult to achieve. However the recent introduction of second generation CST device from Custom Shooting Technologies in the US has now successfully overcome this difficulty but it MUST be used in conjunction with the Power Custom bolt described above! Price is shown on our "build list"

Experienced shooters may recall the CG two-stage match trigger for the Remington 700 rifle which disappeared from the market some years ago. The good news is that it has been redesigned to eliminate some minor faults when used in rifles with a magazine fitted and is now available exclusively from us here in the UK. Price £275



How much we have yearned for such a device for many years .... well now it's here!  Designed to fit into most Rem 700 synthetic stocks without any machining or inletting. The makers say that some wooden stocks MAY need some fitting but we have installed this kit into several synthetic stocks (factory, Hogue, Bell & Carlson, Choate and HS Precision so far) Every one has slotted straight home and secured using the standard action screws. The floor plate and magazines are of polymer construction and the short action and long action mags are available in 5 and 10 round capacities. If this isn't enough good news for you then the price certainly should be!   Our price for a floor plate and magazine of your choice is just £110 ..... but in case you think it's a misprint or typographical error but we will say it again anyway ...... £110  Spare magazines are £65 each





   CZ rimfire rifle scope base

Produced by a local craftsman, this base is suitable for most CZ452 and 455 rimfire bolt action rifles. It is manufactured in anodised aluminium and availabe in 11mm and 3/8" dovetail patterns to fit the various model types    Price £48







            Remington Rifles
Here are some of rifles for sale all of which have had our usual treatment including refaced and crowned barrel where necessary, smoothed bolt rails and adjusted trigger..... all models are suitable as a base for one of our semi-custom rifles or of course may be shot and enjoyed just as they come with our "fettling" procedure!

.223 SPS Tactical 16" threaded barrel, Hogue stock in Ghillie Green. With a 1 in 9 twist barrel this is an excellent choice for vermin or target shooting ..... £850

.308 SPS Varmint 26" barrel, factory polymer stock .... £850

.308 Rem 700 with stainless 24" barrel, 5R rifling with 1 in 11.25 twist barrel, HS Precision stock with threaded barrel ..... £1,200

The ergonomic virtues of the AR-15 rifle has long been appreciated by those people fortunate to live in a society where law abiding citizens may legally possess semi-automatic centerfire rifles. Sadly of course this no longer means us in the UK!   Having recently assembled our first straight pull AR-15 rifle has emphasised to us just how pleasant this format is to shoot, even if it does remind us that there is little that is new under the sun as owners of turn of the century Schmidt-Rubin rifles will testify! We are pleased that Josh and Jared Eisenach have nominated us as their UK sole distributor and we are using their beautifully machined side cocking upper receivers in our AR-15 rifles     http://eisenacharms.com/

               BOYDS STOCKS

We carry a selection of these stocks for use when building our Rimfire Magic rifles but we no longer offer them for sale as a stand alone item.

We do still have a fewPro-Varmint stocks for the CZ455 and also some for the earlier CZ452 rimfire bolt action rifles. As well as the black textured finish on the latter we also have some in nutmeg and forest camo finishes too! These stocks are available to purchase as a single item for use with your current rifle.

Pro Varmint CZ455 stock in black textured finish ..... £195

Pro Varmint CZ455 stock in nutmeg laminate .... £195

Pro Varmint CZ455 stock in forest camo laminate .... £195


We receive several enquiries or orders each week and many foreign customers get quite upset when we won't accept their order as some of the parts they want are not subject to any controls in their own country. This would seem a suitable time to explain why we appear to turn away business so readily, which we can assure you is not our choice! Firstly the UK government lays down very strict export rules and breaches are dealt with severely. However, there is another reason which few people are aware of, namely US government export condtions. Although we acquire several US Export licences on a regular basis each and every licence carries the warning that the items concerned must not be re exported. Once again there are penalties for breaching these restrictions and the indications are that the US government is becoming increasingly concerned over such matters. It will be obvious to most shooters that many gun parts come in to us from the US and whilst we would love to be able to supply parts outside the UK we are sure you will understand that we wish to stay strictly within the law both in the UK and also the US



The panic buying of gun parts which has been going on in the US for some while now appears to be abating somewhat and we are currently sitting comfortably on a good stock of 10/22® mags.

    BX-1® 10 round black factory mags ...... £25 each   BX-25® 25 round factory mags ....  £35 each     BX-15®     15 rounds capacity ...... £30 each

The kit comprises three springs and two brass tubes together with comprehensive fitting and safety instructions.  The selection of components permit the shooter to obtain a crisp, single stage trigger pull of less than 2.0 lbs, although we recommend this weight for rifles used in the field for pest control.  With over 6,000 sold we feel we can confidently say that this is pretty much an essential "must have" item for any CZ 452 rimfire rifle! The kit also fits the latest 455 models  Price £15.00 including delivery.
