The other is stripped to donor parts (just debating whether to spend money on parts to resurrect it)
    I have another in bits. The sears have had too much ground off trying to reduce trigger weight. You can have that one.

    I'm very pleased with it. It's perfect for what I want it for. Many thanks for bringing it

    I'll still be sorta in the bike job selling clothing and accessories, but in a much, much more relaxed environment.

    Spookily enough, I'll be working in the same building that I worked in when I started selling bikes just over 25 years ago. And be under the wing of the same chap as I was all that time ago, too. It's almost like coming home......

    Can't wait!
    Congrats on the new job. Sounds like it's finally going to be the right environment for you going forward

    Thank you. Maybe I could bring them back next bash to let attendees do some can bashing?

    I didn't know you was looking for a change in jobs Tony. I hope you enjoy it.
    I used to deliver tyres to a motorbike accessory shop just off j35 of the M1 in the late 80's.

    Thank you Neil and Tina for another great event, see you soon.

    Boing!
    Guessing you're well and truly safely home now then, Nick?

    Great to see you once again; twice on the bounce, eh?

    And thank you for those little prezzies......I'm sure those nice little top hats will come in useful at some point. And I didn't spot the little pots of BumSlide until later on the Sunday, so grabbed a couple of those also.

    Far too many rifles to list now, all mainly British but the odd pesky foreigner has snuck in

    Actually Neil, as I have the sear out of the second pistol, would you like me to send you the sears and piston (and any other bits you might need?).

    The one was a bit of a swine to dis-assemble. The retainer screw on the breech block was absolutely solid, so I had to go Neanderthal and drill it out before I could take it apart, so even complete, it wouldn't be pretty (is any S3 pretty?)
