GOOD NEWS FROM SYSS!
Although Roger's hip replacement was one month ago he is still not able to work at full speed but it does seem to be improving slightly over the past couple of days. This in itself is good news but it assumes greater importance to us when combined with our other good news which is that on Tuesday 26th May our US exporter is taking to the airport probably one of the biggest single export ordesr we have placed in thirty years!
Not only do we have a further batch of 45 Remington 700 rifles in .223 and .308 calibres, we also have managed to source another half dozen "proper" Marlin rifles in .357, .45 and .32-40 We are continuously looking for Marlins but the bad news on that front is that even twenty year old pre-safety models with microgroove rifling are commanding prices of up to $1,000 at auction. we have seen a .357 in stainless steel up at $2,300! Clearly this situation is not going to improve but we will continue to get hold of these rifles if we can find them at sensible prices. If only Marlin would start producing the .357's with the quality they used to offer a few years ago!
On a new front for us we have secured an exclusive deal with Eisenach Arms to import their side cocking AR-15 uppers and bolt carriers. Our plan here is to try to make these popular rifles available to Club shooters at affordable prices. You may like to check them out at http://eisenacharms.com/
We already have on hand a large number of AR-15 lower receivers together with some barrels and assorted handguards, stocks and pistol grips etc so we are hoping to have the first of our pre-ordered rifles back from Proof and ready for their new owners within 6 -8 weeks. When we have dealt with the pre-ordered rifles we will get some more assembled and on our site ASAP. We have been getting in some of Hogue's new AR-15 products and we have found them to be excellent quality, as we would expect as we have been importing their 10/22 and Rem 700 stocks for many years.
The latest shipment also contains some more of the Tactical Solutions AR-15 dedicated .22lr rimfire uppers so we will be able to fill the back orders on these too.
Finally for now we are pleased to tell you that we have yet another batch of our Rimfire Magic receivers currently at the Proof House. We have now sold almost 450 of these rifles and hopefully we will reach 500 once we have the new batch deliverd back to us in the next two weeks.
So all we need now is for Roger to be able to stand for longer on both legs and get some work done!
RIFLE BASIX TRIGGERS
After some months of US export licence wranglings we are pleased to announce the arrival of a shipment of Rifle Basix triggers. Whilst we continue to import triggers for several makes of rifle we have largely concentrated on triggers for the Remington 700 due to the fact that it is virtually impossible to obtain Jewell triggers for these rifles at present.
CHOATE RIFLE STOCKS
We have sold quite a number of of these US made stocks over the years but noticed recently that Choate had introduced several new stocks for the Remington 700 and our first shipment has just arrived. These fine stocks all feature one common theme ..... they all incorporate one important feature, namely an integral aluminium chassis which gives excellent support for the barrelled action without the need for expensive bedding procedures. You will find some pictures of these excellent , value for money stocks, together with prices on our Remington 700 page. Click here to go straight to the page
AR-15 RIMFIRE RIFLES
We are pleased to say that our AR-15 "lookalike" rifles are selling well and we have more Tactical Solutions rimfire upper receivers currently with our US exporter awaiting export licencing (together with many other goodies) Our current batch of mil-spec versions are sold out but we do still have a few of the Lightweight barrel versions available in the shop.
We have been delighted in the interest that our AR-15 rifles has been shown by a lot of shooters who, like us believe there is definitely a place in the market for rifles of this type which are constructed from traditional heavy duty materials, thus giving them the feel and balance of the "real article"
Take a look at our New Firearms page to see what we are offering but check back frequently as we will be adding more models as quickly as we can build and test them which we are actively doing right now! Here's one to tempt you .....
We are pleased to confirm that our large shipment of Boyds stocks arrived safely and are already selling well. Not only do we have plenty of the Evolution and Pro-Varmint stocks for Rimfire Magic and Ruger 10/22® rifles® but we also have Pro-Varmint stocks for the CZ455 and also some for the earlier CZ452 rimfire bolt action rifles. As well as the black textured finish on the latter we also have some in nutmeg and forest camo finishes too!

PLEASE, PLEASE NOTE....WE WILL NOT EXPORT ANY GUN PARTS! THIS INCLUDES RIFLE STOCKS!
We receive several enquiries or orders each week and many foreign
customers get quite upset when we won't accept their order as some of
the parts they want are not subject to any controls in their own
country. This would seem a suitable time to explain why we appear to
turn away business so readily, which we can assure you is not our
choice! Firstly the UK government lays down very strict export rules
and breaches are dealt with severely. However, there is another reason
which few people are aware of, namely US government export condtions.
Although we acquire several US Export licences on a regular basis each
and every licence carries the warning that the items concerned must not
be re exported. Once again there are penalties for breaching these
restrictions and the indications are that the US government is becoming
increasingly concerned over such matters. It will be obvious to most
shooters that many gun parts come in to us from the US and whilst we
would love to be able to supply parts outside the UK we are sure you
will understand that we wish to stay strictly within the law both in
the UK and also the US
RUGER® 10/22® MAGS IN STOCK
panic buying of gun parts which has been going on in the US for some
while now appears to be abating somewhat and we are currently sitting comfortably on a
good stock of 10/22® mags.
BX-1® 10 round black factory mags and BX-1C® 10 round clear factory mags
BX-25® 25 round factory mags £35 each

PRICES DOWN !
don't rest on our laurels here at SYSS and are always trying
to find ways to keep down our costs so that we may pass savings on to
the shooter. Many of you will be aware that we have quite a few gun
parts manufactured here in this country, and this is a policy we will
continue to pursue where possible. As an example, we have taken
delivery of half of an order which will cost us £850 plus VAT and this
is simply for pins ..... yes, several hundreds of them! Basic pins to
go in our Rimfire Magic trigger units. This all adds up to a saving,
however small. So watch out for lower prices on our
Rimfire Magic rifles. How about this one for example which is one of
our most popular versions with a nutmeg brown laminate stock. All five
laminate colours we offer may be seen on our new firearms page, just
click on the image below (please note the muzzle brake shown is not
included and is an optional extra)
CZ Trigger Kit
The kit comprises three springs and two brass tubes together with
comprehensive fitting and safety instructions. The selection of
components permit the shooter to obtain a crisp, single stage trigger
pull of less than 2.0 lbs, although we recommend this weight for rifles
used in the field for pest control. With over 4,500 sold we feel
we can confidently say that this is pretty much an essential "must
have" item for any CZ 452 rimfire rifle! The kit also fits the latest 455 models Price £15.00 including delivery.
another popular product which has become difficult to obtain, but we
have managed to get our hands on a few of the FP-336 and FP-336TK
receiver sights whch simply attach to the rear two holes drilled and
tapped in modern Marlin rifles. They include controls for windage and
elevation and a .093" aperture and the prices are £55 and £65
respectively Some shooters prefer a smaller aperture and we
offer the .050" one at £8.00
"Ace in the Hole" sight
clever idea from Williams Gunsights sees a picatinny rail for use with
optical sight but which also incorporates a small adjustable rear sight
and a Firesight fibreoptic front sight. So, in the
event of a failure with your optical sight you can whip it off and
still have some back up iron sights to use! £55
Magic Bolt Knob
can replace your factory bolt knob with this more ergonomic version for
£75 plus return post
This work entails setting up a fixture in the lathe in order to machine
down the bolt handle prior to threading the new stem thus created to
accept the new bolt knob. To date we have performed this task on dozens
of Remingtom bolts without a problem.....apart from two instances when
the bolt handle separated from the bolt body due to inadequate welding
of the two parts at the factory! We only accept this work on the
understanding that any bolt which separates will be repaired by welding
at no cost to the customer. This may leave minor cosmetic marking on
the bolt unit due to heat. We do not charge for the repair but by
requesting this work the customer is deemed to accept the (minor) risk
of damage. Our warranty is limited to the repair of the bolt but we
cannot cover any consequent marking of the bolt, so this job is done
entirely at the customer's risk! Naturally we do take every care NOT to
damage the customer's bolt!
