    No personal experience, but as far as I can see RUAG are no longer listed as UK distributor, and no one has taken their place, so you may have to contact Rossler directly.

    What's for sure is that the Titan is designed from the start to be a switch-barrel, and the procedure for changing calibres is quite straightforward.

    Is that because you've had problems with a Titan yourself, or because of potential problems with obtaining parts in a different calibre?

    Must admit I did wonder what Splash was on about.
    Just to make it clear : I have a RWS in .243 which is a fantastic rifle and as they are a switch barrel I was looking at going for a larger caliber barrel for it .
    cheers Steve.

    Ive not owned a titan but spent 2 hrs at Garlands trying to zero one a few years ago ! That was after the owner had given up trying and the Dealer had said it was his or the ammo was at fault.
    Eventually it was retuned to the importer by the owner to be shown how it could shoot !!
    After a morning of shooting best THEY managed a 4" 3 shot group and gave him his money back.

    Need I sat more ?

    If you think the Titan is a fantastic rifle you haven't tried enough other makes.

    I understand you've had a very frustrating time with one rifle.

    I have also only shot one Titan, and rather enjoyed the experience*.

    Looks like we might need a larger sample to judge by.



    *Though "fantastic" would be overstating matters, it did strike me as a neat, handy and well-presented rifle (stainless/synthetic); and I liked the fact you could have every option in left hand.

    Hi Splash,

    Erm rifles owned
    Cz221 fireball
    Riflecraft 22-250 (Remmie)
    Ruger nio 1 ,22-250
    Wetherbury vanguard .223
    Savage .17
    Anschutz .22
    Savage 7mm-08
    And a .243 RWS

    They all have good and very good points and some bad.
    The one I have had the longest is the RWS.

    Maybe the one you tried was a Friday afternoon jobbie.

    Steve

    Dads got a RWS Titan. Heavy barreled 308. Will shoot an inch at 200 yards with 165g homeloads.
    Not exactly bad for a factory rifle.
    Good build quality, well finished, brilliant set trigger.
    Not much to complain about for £600.
