Thread: Anyone local to York Guns?

  1. #1

    Anyone local to York Guns?

    Is there anyone here local to York Guns?

    If anyone's going in there in the next couple of days i'd be really grateful of a favour....

    They've a second hand rifle i'm interested in and it'd be great if someone with experience could look it over and give an honest appraisal. Not that I don't trust the description i've been given over the phone by staff there - just that different eyes see different things.

    I'm looking for my first centrefire and don't want to make a costly mistake buying unseen.

    Let me know if you can help.

    Given your location, I would recommend going in person to see Gregor at Mcleods of Tain.

    Especially for purchasing your first centrefire rifle you will receive invaluable guidance and advice and excellent service.

    +1 on this. Personally I am not a great fan of distance buying of second hand guns, it's full of pitfalls and often leads to all sorts of problems.
    Nothing against York guns but you have a well respected RFD in Gregor on your doorstep.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Couldn't agree more, had my fingers burned several times with distant purchases, Greggor is a true gent and will without doubt see you right, if he was on my doorstep I'd be there spending all my hard earned without question!
    Opinions are like arseholes....... we all have them, and most of them stink

    Thanks for the replies so far boys.

    I hear what you're all saying about Macleods/Gregor and going with what's on your doorstep. I'm no stranger either - been buying fishing tackle and air rifle pellets there since I was a laddie!

    The reason for thinking about the distance purchase is that the rifle in question is the same as my mentor/stalking pal has, and I know i'm familiar/confident with it.

    I'll maybe drop by Macleods later on and see if he hasn't got one squirelled away somewhere....

    Thanks all for the advice.
