OK Justen. This is the very last mention of the 'sword.' business...

Yes, £400 WITH the sword was cheap - that's why Eric gave Armae a go. BUT THE RIFLE IS NOT LIVE. He will be sending it off to be proofed and converted. In the meantime, he has it in his hands and can drill with it, etc.

So, enough with the sword questions, please! (That may change as Armae now realise the UK suppliers sell it separately).

However, as a result of competition (presumably from the likes of Armae), West Point Albion have just recently reduced considerably their prices for a 'live' Baker. They have brought them down to £420 (not inc sword which goes for £75). This would put a finaol live-with-sword at £495..(plus a bit of p&p if not collecting).

Same with Derbyshire (non in stock) but Kranks has them at £499 (rifle only).

However, if it's any consolation Eric, they've non in stock and it's likely to be a waiting time of several weeks. If anyone else is interested, it might be worth putting an order in now (especially if you've just applied for license, etc).

PS: If dealing with any of the UK dealers refrain from calling a 'wallhanger' an INERT. To them an inert is like a deac - barrel and breech sliced, drilled and welded, etc, to prohibit any attempts at firing.
