Hi Guys, some of you may remember a few months ago I bought A Parker Hale Safari rifle in 270 Win. Caliber made circa 1965. Well the trigger was Shagging awful and no amount of fiddling was going to fix it. So Cliffsgunsmithing in the US came to the rescue with a Timny trigger the cost was £40 including postage. Then a great guy at Rakers (Barry) fitted it not stiaght forward but to a guy like Barry soon fixed. Next to arrive from the states was my new scope. A 3-9x50 made by Barska in China( I can here you laughing) but you should always pay more for your scope than your rifle and as the rifle cost £60 I thought £75 for the scope was plenty and that included post and tax.
So last night I zeroed and after bore sighting 8 rounds had it on zero. Let the barrel cool a bit and put 1st round through a half inch bull at 100 yrds the next was 1 inch to the right. I think I have a bargain and cant wait for the rut in Scotland this Oct.
I may put a Boyds thumbhole stock on it but I really like the balence of this rifle and as a boyds is £100 it may have to wait till after Christmas.
