As mentioned on other threads, I hoped to get myself a present in the UK.
Well here they are!
Very nice Titan Manitou in .177 with a BEAUTIFUL walnut stock;
Guntuff 8-32x50 to maybe go with it (JSR, thanks ED!)
Boxed (tatty) Webley Senior (very good nick) christmas prezzy from the mrs!
XS78 action (stock is for sale!) & Leapers 3-9x40 scope (JSR) to fit in a AGS PCR1 stock
Probably the best holiday souvenirs I have ever had!!
The Titan's are greatly understimated rifles, IMHO. Particularly if you let John Bowkett loose on one - as he designed them and loves working on them. I'm using 2 of mine this weekend - both MPTs and they're great little rifles. Well, almost pistols really!
But squirrels certainly don't complain after a 18ft/lb Accupel in the brain box. (Yes, one is FAC)
Your walnut stock is superb!
Get the rifle to Bowkett, if you can, for a 'tuning'/'blueprinting' - it's worth it.
I just typed a long reply to your question Glyn, & then shut the page by accident
As it is so bloody hot, I will just say that I bought all 3 guns from this guy, & will write him a glowing testimonial (again) when it cools down later
Oooooh!!- your Titan is a beaut Dave
The Webbo doesn't look too bad from the pic- certainly better than some that i've seen...
The best souvenirs that i've ever seen

Thanks John, the senior is actually better in the flesh as the camera has picked out every little mark

nice,very nice indeed
I am green with ENVY!!
One of the nicest Thumbhole Target Manitou's I have ever seen, definately send it to John Bokett for blueprinting as the man is pure majic on his Titans.
Will answer your PM via email later.
Super nice score on that one Dave.....wish it were mine.
Do you need to get them detuned to 7.5 Joules for France?
I wouldn't like to see these end up in a customs auction!!
That Titan is superb. Looks like you've had a good trip to the UK.
Thanks everyone for the nice comments. I'm rather pleased with my purchases
Thanks for the email Tom, I'll reply later.
No problem with the limit Ian as I have a French shooters licence.
