hi all,
anybody know where I can get a wildcat predator compact .308 with 1/2" unf thread , will need to be proofed as local rfds wont pass them on with out it . seems anywhere but cornwall its not a problem. there are a few for sale that are unproofed but stuck with rfd and what he says goes if I want it posted to him.
thanks

Why dont you contact the makers directly? This issue re proofed moodies is beyond me. I have two Wildcats, both are proofed on the sleeve, but as all the components are interchangable its a pointless exercise. You could buy a replacement sleeve and it wouldn't be proofed at all!!
My .22 P/H is not proofed.

Why not buy an unproofed one?

I hear what your both saying, and its a pain in the ar$e seems its all a pile **** . the more rfds I talk to the more I get spun out. how about this , if you got .308 mod on your fac you cant buy anything else ,fair play understand that,
but lets say you order a .308 and they send a .30cal coz they don't do a full range to suit all calibres "that's fine !!" and then when I changed my rifle I was told " we can drill out your .223 mod to suit that new .243 rifle if you buy it and that will save you a few quid"

but I just want a moderator this time and they is doing me head in. will go outside cornwall if I have to, just to take custom elsewhere rather than get shafted !!!

jay if your problem is flip rather than noise have you considered a decent muzzle brake then you can tell the mole to stuff his proofed dustbin up his arse

I think mole has got some kind of muzzle brake fitted to himself and to his phone !! ,he take so bloody long to sort anything out I get bored waiting, he must have an excuse book as big as the bible .. time to go on a drive and get a new moderator sorted before the reds come back in season

aye bud I had similar issue with mole 2 years back told him to his face its a money making scam and at the end of the day its just a metal tube so is a scaffold pole I ended up going cross the border into tavi and got one up the gunroom .......pity mine wont fit ur 308 you could of had that I would be quite happy with the brake if I was you I would travel for one what u spend in diesel you would save in stresss if you went via the mole or the other goon out at helston

I've had the same problem recently, I purchased a 22-250 and mod from an rfd at the other end of the country, mod wasn't proofed, there was no way any of the local rfd's would sign the mod out to me. I got around it by having the gun and mod sent to my rfd then him sending the mod to be proofed then signing it out to me. A right pain but is an option if you can get an unprofed one for the right price I suppose?

:stir: I will sort it some how ,just cant see why with the way that everything needs a bit of paper with it these days, the Cornish rfd s got to go the extra mile to get to the same place. no wonder they think were a bit slow down ere

at last,
the score reads : hunter 1 , rfd 0 .
got the mod I wanted in less than 24hrs and only 3 phone calls and 47 miles driving, a tip for anyone , just play 1 rfd against another and when they think they got your pants down and wallet out call out rfd no.3 into play and watch them fight for the sale:rofl: " I WIN "

indeed you did win jay I reckon when the mole finds out he will retreat into his little den and spend weeks planning how to shaft you back lol
