Thread: Information please, Importers of Winchester Rifles?

    Information please, Importers of Winchester Rifles?

    Help please, I need to find out who imports Winchester into the UK?

    I have a M8 in trouble with bases for his new Model 70 coyote light, too long a story to relate fully but the latest imports from EGW for 68.00 don't fit either.

    You may wish to consider and sort out this scenario before you buy a Winchester rifle with no bases!

    Thanks Kevin but the problem appears to be the hole centers not matching up on the EGW single piece base, he appears to have tried at least 5 other options with two piece bases too.
    He said he had been told by the rifle supplier that Winchester don't sell bases, a quick look on the net disproved that in minutes.
    How you can email Winchester in the States appears to be another situation.

    Thanks saddler!

    Try scope rails for a rail? I've one of their rails on my 243 and am most impressed. Regards JCS

    Thanks Big Stu and jcs, just had it confirmed from EGW that it is the WSM one we need!

    I ordered the original one using the information supplied by EGW a 42000 one, I wonder why they gave me the wrong information in the first place? ? ? ? if they knew of the problem!

    Aah well! the battle starts for a refund.
