Today I had a visit from a Met firearms officer, who has provisionally said that I will be getting my FAC as requested (.22lr, .223, and 7mm-08).
I'm now in the market for an affordable second hand 7mm-08 set-up, with a slight preference for a Sauer, Steyr Mannlicher or Sako (quite simply because they look so pretty...) topped with top quality glass - i suspect this will need to be fixed magnification otherwise my wallet will take a kicking.
I'll be conditioned for a Moderator and would ideally hope to pick up a combo that includes this and a bipod.
Now I know 7mm-08s are more popular these days, but a quick google search failed to show up anything. Can anyone please suggest a stockist who might be able to provide all or some of the above, preferably near SW London or Somerset who is reliable and affordable.
Worth noting how impressive the Met team have been, business like and looking for reasons why I should be granted a license rather than excuses not to. The only problem is that they probably won't give me an open license.
Many thanks in advance!
