For almost a year I have been trying to get hold of a spare magazine for my SHR 970, they proved to be rare as hens teeth. A couple of kindly forum members kept an eye out for me but to no avail. Then by luck, I found what I wanted had been incorrectly listed on US website, several e-mails later it ended with them insisting, that despite my offers to pay for everything in advance, they would not ship international.
During a conversation (through PM'S) with another forum member, I was told that if I e-mailed the details to him then his pal who lives over the pond will buy it on my behalf, ship it back to him and then he will ship it to me. Sure it was a bit of a long winded way to do things but I am now the owner of a shiny, new, (well matt black actually) pressed steel box mag for less than the price some of the plastic ones for the more "fashionable" rifles.
Now this may not sound like much to some of you but I have been in touch with people in Germany, Italy, France, Denmark and Switzerland and got absolutely no-where at all.
So many thanks indeed to The Stalking Directory and in particular to the forum member who made this happen, what a thoroughly good bloke he is.
