Two Scopes!

In an uncontrolable fit of spending, our friend BRIT purchased not 1 but 2 Leupold VXlll, a 6.5-20x50 LRT and a 8.5-25x50 LRT both with Varmint/hunter reticles.
What a man!

Ian.

    IAN
    I could suffer the humiliation of being "outed" as using a Simmons scope no longer. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img].Things had to change.I sold the dog to a Vivisectionist and sent the wife to work the docks after dark.I managed to scrape together the 1450,(1400 for the dog and 50 from the wife [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img])
    Next thing will be a call to that nice Mr Lincoln in Germany for a new Barrel on the 308.
    See you on the range next Thursday mate.

    Nick,
    I am extremely excited at the prospect of having my simmons scope returned to me (Damm! i should not have acknowledged ownership). Have you got the lens covers? if not i will swap you a 22-250 bullet seating die for the butler creek covers.
    See you next weak.

    Ian.

    PETE

    Sorry for not replying sooner,been to Minsterly with Ian(centre).

    As the new stocks barrel channel is contoured for a #9 barrel i thought it would be nice for a re-barrel.As you will be aware the UK gunsmiths certainly know how to charge for their services and being a Yorkshire man i do not part with money easily [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img].
    Spotted your advert in last months gun mag(forget which one). Have you had much response? It is certainly a good thing to have a new smith offering his services to us as our existing ones would seem to almost have a cartell.
    Will e-mail you with some questions Pete.

    NICK.
