Ditto. Ours are long gone.

(30 Jun 2018 for new DIN)

When the first endex for the No 8 was announced, I made a bet to myself that it would be at least another 2 yrs in service… I might have to revise my bet to extend the date further…

All this was very predictable & avoidable.

All ours are gone :frowning: Replaced by shiny new L144 :slight_smile:


#264

…until rust gets to them…


#265

because you didn’t oil them.

I was surprised by how much cleaning the pamphlet reckons they need.


#266

Probably because the pamphlet was written by some SASC moron and not someone who actually understands the world of small-bore rifle shooting.


#267

Probably because they are cheap steel barrels? How often do Anschutz barrels require cleaning, let alone oiling…??

Go cheap, pay the consequences.


New .22 rifle problem?
#268

I got to do the WHT for the L98 without having fired anything else. Just have to fire an air rifle now and then I can actually use it.


#269

You have to attain trained shot, not just fire it…

‘Twas a figure of speech.
