    Is it me or what?

    I have been reading some of the threads in rifles and calibres section and the amount of members complaining in respect of value for money and what they expect from a new rifle, in regard to build quality.

    They don't build them like they used to and theres plastic this on and plastic that on and the fall to bits ,so why do we keep buying this *****? why don't we turn round to the manufacturers of this crap and tell them to off load it on some other ****t.

    Surely we all know that rifles arn't the same quality as they were 30 years ago and cost 3 times the price for the privaledge of owning such *****.

    Personally I would not give them a scorrock for any of the mass produced crap they are turning out and put my hard earned into a good secondhand one and get it rebarelled if need be their is no comparison whatsoever withe the standards employed 30 years ago and we have supposed to have advanced it must be me , what do you lot think am I wrong or what???????

    Mine holds groups within a 4" disc and i bet yours does under normal stalking situations Paul with all things taken into consideration like breathing stablisation etc and all that is needed to shoot a deer at 150yds they dont know the difference between 1" and 4" the reason i know this is they go down on their backs with their legs sticking up in the air like a dead fleck, mind you i know a few women who finish up like that but not quite as dead as the deer although some of them being a close second.
