UPDATE 31st July 2020
This “New Normal” situation is getting some used to! Whilst reopening our shop was welcome we are still finding it difficult to accustom ourselves to not greeting people with a friendly handshake and needing to move around as though taking part in some sort of old fashioned dance so as to maintain social distancing (how much we have come to hate this phrase!) It seems very surreal but hopefully we will get the hang of it in time. With any luck it will soon become unnecessary as and when we are all able to resume our previous way of life…. We are obliged to remind you all that currently it is (regretfully) mandatory for you to wear appropriate facial covering when entering our shop. We also offer hand sanitising solution for your use.
RIMFIRE MAGIC RIFLES
We have spoken with the Proof House this morning and it appears that the batch of Rimfire Magic receivers and bolts we sent for testing a couple of weeks ago have not yet been started. They reeckon it will be a further two weeks before the parts will be ready for us to collect. When we do eventually collect them we will be leaving them with the remaining receivers and bolts from our last batch of manufactured parts. We already have a list of shooters who have ordered rifles for us to assemble and we are very happy to accept further orders. We can only apologise for the delay in production but assure you we will be back to building our rifles ASAP!
Meanwhile we had a pleasant surprise yesterday when a caller at the shop showed us a video on YouTube which had only been posted the day before and had already received over 1,000 hits (including one from us later in the day!) We knew nothing whatsoever about this review and we have no connection with the reviewer who in turn it appears was offered the rifle to review by a customer. The rifle itself was produced back in 2017 We thought you may like to see this ….
Yes, at last we have around 85 beautiful new laminate stocks all ready for your Rimfire Magic or Ruger® 10/22® rifle. Naturally we have plenty of the favourite Evolution stocks in Nutmeg, Pepper, Forest Camo, Royal Jacaranda, Sky Blue, Applejack ….. even Pink! The really good news is that we also have some of Boyds latest creation …. the At-One stock! This is their new thumbhole version which features adjustable length of pull and comb height and whilst we admit to a certain degree of bias here ….. they are gorgeous, and of course eminently practical too. See what you think ……..
They have a barrel channel to accept .920″ barrels and the example shown here is fitted with a 16″ VQ carbon fibre barrel with compensator in a Coyote laminate stock. The stocks are available as a separate item in our online store for £325 and currently offered in Nutmeg, Forest Camo and Coyote laminates. However we will need to remove them from sale separately for a while as their popularity as the stock option on our rifles means we will need to retain our current inventory for use when building rifles. We are now ordering more At-One stocks from Boyds so will be able to offer them for sale again in the near future. We apologise for any inconvenience for this.
We have been delighted with the response to the tuning process which we apply to all the Marlin lever action rifles we offer. When the work is completed it is possible to work the action with one finger, and the trigger pull is usually a maximum of 2.5 lbs with most rifles showing a trigger pull weight of 2.0 lbs or even less! Apart from internal polishing and reshaping of some parts we also include a one piece stainless steel firing pin and modified or reduced power springs
The popularity of these fine lever action rifles has led to a shortage and despite placing regular orders with the importers we are still unable to get our hands on enough of them! We are delighted to confirm that we are Pro Dealers for Raytrade UK Ltd who import not only Marlin rifles but also our favourite centrefire rifles …. the Remington 700. Whilst we try to carry a reasonable number of both these marques in stock at the shop we are able to quickly provide a price quote and availability for any model of Marlin and Remington rifle plus of course ANY other item from any other manufacturer whose products are supplied by Raytrade including Chiappa, Nesika Bay, Bushmaster and Dakota Arms rifles etc
MARLIN DARK SERIES
We are taking advance orders on any Marlin rifles including the latest Dark Series Model 1894 in .357 and .44 mag They feature a 16.25″ threaded barrel, black painted wood stock with webbing finish, XS sights and scope rail and big loop lever with Paracord wrapping. Naturally ours will be supplied in a fully tuned and slicked package, ready for use on the range. We currently have around 20 Marlins on order with the importers and of course will post details when we get our hands on them. Included on this order is a number of the new Marlin Dark series in both .357 and .44 calibres. As well as the basic model we are also expecting some of the Tactical versions which are fitted with a Midwest Industries aluminium M-Lok style handguard and 16″ barrel. With their parkerised metal work and black wooden butt stock we think they are a great addition to the Marlin range and destined to be rather sought after too! We are accepting back orders for them right now so please feel free to get in touch if you are interested. You won’t be surprised to learn that they will all be tuned and slicked before sale! We were recently asked by a customer if we would tune his Dark Series Marlin in .30-30 calibre (we don’t see many in this calibre) and here is a photo of this gentleman’s rifle after we fitted the handguard he had purchased separately.
Whoops…. nearly forgot! We would also like to thank all those people who have e-mailed to say that they have read about the cancellation of our retirement plans (yet again!) and said how pleased they were to see it. Although we are going through the worst two years of our lives with various health issues we honestly have to say that one of the biggest reasons we have tried to keep going is the kind sentiments expressed by so many of you we have come to regard as not just just customers but friends too! Thank you all!
