Read an old copy of gun mart that I found next to my bog this morning and saw an advert for straight pull SLR/Fals. Are these still in production and where can I get one? I think it was Sabre Defence who was advertising but havent seen an advert for UK legal SLR/FAL's for some time.

You're right, it was Sabre, but havnt seen them advertise them for quite some time now.....They were having a clearout of some .22 LR FALS fairly recently, costing around £900-£1000.

They are not very good shooters.

Hand loaded ammuntioon is a must, primary extraction problems with anything else.

The cocking handle is difficult to reach; They are also very heavy to shoot for any length of time, plus putting an accurate optic on them means a heavy bracket ,that increases the weight still more.

Much better rifles to spend money on

Never held or seen one but a squaddie workmate said they were truly superb rifles if a little too long. Always reminds me of when i was a teen watching the news seeing our troops in the Falklands with their SLR'S.

You could almost get two R22's for that amount of money, But not off Decade

Rest assured, when the MP5 stylie R22 becomes available I will be buying one from the 'correct' source...

Andy, if it helps you decide, you have always been my favourite "ARFcom-UK-HTF-Moderator", or if not, perhaps a close second only to our old friend 82nd.

BTW, Have you got your Bremmer yet?
