Well that's different, not seen a shotgun breech like that before.
How old is the gun?

Well, that hit the buffers at full speed!



The French system being what it is and Brexit having caused all manner of problems with paperwork it has become obvious that the gun stays here and on my ticket.

I will let Robert stroke it when he comes to visit and I will now look at repairs to the stock.


Hopefully to get it back to this........




Something wrong with the system. It won't put the images in order as I have placed them in line and is leaving little icons in the text. :oops: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

I deleted the not showing links in the text. Try this. Put each image in the attachments upload and then put each photo in the post as you want them to line up. Use your moderator power to open this post up in edit and see what I'm talking about.

For years I have uploaded images and then clicked on the 'Insert Image' link and then clicked 'Place in line'

Look at your post in edit. Note the "url" in the brackets? It should have been "img". :bigsmile:
