Surely if anyone is interested in an M1 in .22 they would probably already have discovered Ermas?
Guess he wont be selling too many, or is there something 'special' about them? (special in reference to the rifles, not the importer.. although i'm guessing some might like to apply this to the aforementioned company...)

The worst part of shooting sports , is that its "shiny" paper....much the same as the old "Izal".

Hardly stop press stuff now, is it?


Nah, that's your point, my point is that I'd rather have an Erma, or even an airsoft gun before I bought anything from the new Plum

Probably a slow news month, and by their webshite they're taking orders for delivery at the end of Jan, whilst I was there I noticed that they took the pictures of them making a mess of Century out of their gallery too

But it doesn;t have that medicated aroma that Izal had.


Or the absorbency...



Or the traceability

Some were sold several years ago by Cotswold Arms, I think? Rare and expensive these days.

No suggestion as to price?

I get that you guys are used to it, it sucks that you're used to it though.

....I heard that the RRP was about £530 or so!!!....

OUCH
Link Posted: 1/2/2012 4:14:16 AM EDT
oouch indeed.
I'd have thought 375-400 would be fairer

That's a huge mark up from $331

Don't forget he has to pay for the models to stand about at shows with him! I can't see them doing that for free!

Bloody hell, that is actually painful! I like a straight pull, but that is steep to say the least.

Link Posted: 1/2/2012 5:59:32 PM EDT
That's over $2000 and for that you could get a very very nice fully functional original or maybe three auto ordnance new builds.

Thanks. Definitely not at that price!

Probably costs that much, as these ones will have no gas port, and not just soft soldered closed like Cotswolds

That wont last. I made a full lenght piston (with shortened shaft) to fill out the cylinder and then soldered the lock screw in place. The original gas port drilling was made at an angle down through the back part of the threads for the lock screw. Solder is quickly blown out if the the cylinder is not blocked completely.
And that concludes the nerd-lesson for today.

That was the problem with Cotswold Arms

Shoot it hot and some of them magically repaired themselves

Is the 'gentleman' in question's cowardly, lying, two-faced cuntishness a general thing, or does he reserve it for only a few people?

If you'd rather not say on here, you can always send me a message as it's always good to know who to avoid.

I can see it now 'Chunky Monkey Firearms, Pies and Ice Cream' for the more decerning chunky northern shooter.
