    Worth doing. This country has some great places to go hunting.

    The above works (but not accurate) although getting the shells out after firing can be a sod as they are rimless .

    A lot depends on the quality/condition of your shotgun.

It's less reliable when you use the 25/50 round banana clips that are available.

    In my youth owned one of these and agree totally. 50 Round mag was a pain to load and tended to missfeed on a regular basis, best to stick with the stock rotary as you say. Only problems with the 10/22 was when using quicker rounds like xpediter. Would be very unusualy not to get a jam within 10 shots or so. Standard supersonic like rabbit ammo etc no worries

    Back in the UK only single shot weapons are available to the public and that's with extensive checks/expenditure/waiting lists/more checks.

    If there's even a hint that you might have a gun that can fire more than one bullet without reloading the armed offenders squad turn up with orders shoot to kill (I knew of a guy got shot dead for having a chair leg in a shopping bag )
    Yeah Jim it's pretty easy to get your firearms licence in NZ pay your money to the establishment and do a mountain safety course and youre licenced to kill!!They do check your background out, you know any mental illness etc and you need to have a gun safe or lockable cabinet to store your weapons of mass destruction!
    Bummer about getting blown away for brandishing a chairleg!! They do the same here in NZ for golf clubs,weight lifting bars etc.
    It would appear a golf club looks very similar to a rifle!!
    Go and see your local arms officer at the NZ police and get some forms then join the rest of us unhinged gun owners in NZ the more the merrier!!!!

    As long as its not plastic if you can get a 20 get the 20! you can take it into a gun smith or someone else who knows about metal and get them to make it smaller, I not sure if you can get a mag pined, but you could always ask the locial arms officer.

    I love guns.
    I love stroking their cool blued metal.
    I love the way they tell me that I don't need to take it anymore.

    Yeah, I've heard of more than one retard whose shot live through a steyr BFA. They must have seen a few like your idiot, because now it just shoots straight through the BFA with a bloody great noise

    Reliability was more of the question. Units knew that 2 rounds fired would be the maximum before jamming (if lucky)...
    Over 50 problems were discovered with the SA80, particularly where operating in a dusty/sandy environment.

    Rifle: 500 million pounds to develop - heavier than L1A1.

    The sintered manufactured hammer caused a lot of problems, they failed with amazing regularity - and it wasn't an easy field-fix either.

    To slightly go off topic.

    Does anyone out there know of a good stock maker, one that doesnt insist on breaking the bank.

    I have rebuilt a Remington Rolling Block original action and had it rebarreled with a 34" full octagonal badger unit. .45-70 caliber

    I have the long range creedmore rear sight and the globe front ready to go on.

    All I need is to have a butt stock and forearm made.

    I have the loan of an other original 1874 RB with which to pattern the needed stock.

    Anyone out there please help.

    Tonight I just purchased another handgun.

    .22 Margolin (not the target version) Margo.

    Threaded for a gentlemans quietener. Came with 4 spare magazines.

    Tried it out at the range and was accused of using an air pistol.

    I guess my ears are safe for a while now.

    Total cost $150.

    Very pleased with my find.

    In November I found and purchased an origonal 1861 Ballard Carbine in 56-56 caliber. Brought to NZ by the US soldier who carried it during the Civil War.
