    Hi Guys,
    For those who are relatively interested in buying the conversion or a complete set up.
    I fired 100 x GGG 7.62x51 and 100 x .22 CCI Mini Mag through her yesterday not one stoppage, smooth as silk.

    I have asked Doug when he has a minute to put a short video up on the last 11 x .22 rounds I fired yesterday on the 25 Metre range. It wouldn't load for me, the video that is .

    Simon,
    Lovely work there by Peter at Armalon, especially on the action and the new design magazine.
    Mine has been a dream since I collected it several months ago as the Guinea Pig.
