So I was RO'ing for the club at bisley yesterday on Short Siberia and a fella from one of the adjacent points fired a shot. I saw what I initially thought was a neoprene mod cover go a little ways down range, nothing too unusual there.
As it turns out it wasn't just the cover, it was the whole mod!
Now this fella was understandably a bit excited and was all for just walking out to collect it, while everyone else was still shooting
Anyway, crisis was averted, shooting stopped and mod collected without further incident. Turns out that the rifles spigot OD was too large to allow the mod to be screwed on properly so it was only getting a fraction on the appropriate thread before butting up to the spigot. Amazingly the mod wasn't damaged.
See something new everyday...
