    LEC, New made Fore-ends and Nose caps

    If anyone is looking for any spares regarding the LEC, then please contact me. I have a fore- end and handguard and nose caps.

    These were for a project that was shelved, the wood work is hand made from NZicon and also the nose caps, they are now surplus to requirements and been gathering dust over last few years, I'm only looking at recovering the initial cost.

    Sounds like a very rare opportunity Geoff, these don't come up very often to say the least!

    John, The reason I mention them on here rather than the for sale part of the forum, only LE enthusiasts will know they are as rare as hens teeth.

    Thanks for all who enquired, it is or was a limited market For the parts, but they are now gone. I have various rifles etc that will be listed in the for sale forum, so keep an eye out, plus various parts.

    The parts never went very far John, but thats another story........ had an email from Promo, he seemed very concerned I'm selling rifles !!! but have reassured him its only excess or stuff that really has no place in the collection, So no snipers, .22 trainers and 7.1 pistols......... are being sold as yet !!

    After 11 odd years as a RFD the amount of stuff that you buy, given or left with, adds up to a lot of storage plus having two lathes, a milling machine and a drill press its a lot of other gear that goes with these, must admit the wife was questioning why I had five single phase motors of various sizes, obviously my reply " because there handy " didn't really answer the question and I suppose she did have a valid point, but I never realised what a detached 1930's garage can hold/store until I emptied it..............My neighbour thought it must be like the Tardis inside.

    "It might come in handy one day"... the death of many a garage and cellar. Not so much death by a thousand cuts, rather by a thousand (what, only a thousand?) bits and bobs.

    I too am having a slow, reluctant clear-out. It gets to be tedious when you spend more time looking for the bits than actually using them!

    It's not how much junk you accumulate, but rather how you locate it once stored.
    Every shed needs a back door....I find that things get piled in from the front, requiring time and effort to get to what's behind.
    So a back door let's you get straight to the part, as you can guarantee the bit you are looking for is the last bit you pickup.

    Certainly a good idea, coming through the back way it would look very organised ..........
