Very nice Eric! Job well done.Smilie_PDT

Justen,
Read the thread on Armae rifles - the one before this thread. It's only them that include the sword with the wallhanger.

Also. there has been some talk of purchasing an inert, i was thinking, if it is ok ofcourse, will ian the friendly neigbourhood cung man be at at Kelmarsh as another thread says about taking your licens and getting a ready to go rifle, is that a viable option? and would Ian (i hope i have the right name if not sorry) be free to guide me to a worth while purchase.

If there is a trader at an event and you have a gun license, yes, you can buy a ready-to-go-weapon. The sword will be extra.

There's no answer to that one - except that if you were there with the weapon you'd try a sword that matched!

Check out prices at:

Derbyshire Arms www.derbyshirearms.co.uk
Kranks: www.henrykrank.com

Derbyshire are likely to be the guys you'd come across at a major event. But follow Eric's thread on Armae and see how much it ends up costing him. I'm guessing the same price as a ready-to-go but with the added bonus of not having to pay extra for a sword. They go for anything between 70-90 separate.)

We await Eric's final costing...

Regarding all in purchase of Rifle

Mines all done now

Rifle 475 euros (depending on exchange rate when you purchase effects it a few quid,mine worked out at 401.34!)

Drilling and proofing 75,not an immediate expense,as you can still lump it around inert

Browning 7 a bottle and a couple of hours work.

So all in a tadge over 480 for a working rifle,seems to be about the same as the other rifles around but you do get the sword which you have to pay for with the others.

I'll be at Newstead for people to examine the beast and see if it was worth it,seems to be.

So Justen 400 is the cheapest option as it takes weeks for the license to come through so you won't be firing it anytime soon.

20 for P&P to and from proofing - round it off to a straight 500

Still sounds a good deal.

Get them while stocks last!

Woops yes Sword.

I just thought that 400 with a "SWORD" was really cheap, I figured that would be one of the ones where you pay an extra 80 or so pounds for the SWORD.
