Forum rules


Posting of negative comments in the Gunshop section could bring unwanted criticism on the forum, having said that it is important to let members know if dealings with a Gunshop were less than ideal for you. To that end we will allow what will be known as the 'Scotsgun Ruling'

The Scotsgun Ruling:

>Add Gun Shop here<

"As I've yet to have a 'positive' experience there, I'll refrain from commenting further."

Beyond that please take it up with the Gunshop, if you do resolve the issue in a agreeable manner let us know!

This rule applies to the entire forum.

Outstanding service.

Dropped my R700 off late on Thursday for coating, Stuart offered to thread it beforehand, good price quoted for the work.

Received text Friday around lunchtime that it would be ready at 16h00.

Picked it up and on my way by 17h30 on Friday night.

Assembling it now shakeshout

I had new barrel fitted to my savage FTR late last year by Stuart.

why did in pick Stuart for this work?

I bought the rifle from Stuart in 2008 and he gave me good sound advice then.
My savage FTR was one of the first batch in the country.

So after 8 years it was time for a new barrel!

I was needing advice as to what barrel to fit and Stuart provided this.
I made the right choice as the work has been first class.
I am still working up a load but it is VERY VERY promising so far.
goodjob

Ditto the above, two rifles re-barrelled by Stuart (my .308 & my son's .223), excellent service.

I find Stuart's persistence amazing. Six years after I paid a deposit for a rifle he is still trying to supply me.
