Tench, thanks for your reply.

Unfortunately, this is not "a few stray shots"... in fact, the groups look like every shot is stray. There is not a single unstray shot amongst them.

Also, since the rifle had been left to wither for 10 years, I recently went through that excercise.
The fact that the rifle has been left unshot for 10 years is enough of an indication that it might need some service...

I did just pull a couple patches through with a solvent, and there was quite a bit of lead residue coming out. We'll see what it does tomorrow.

Oh. Is there a story to that? Or is he just Generally Unspecified Silly?

Nick Murphy did one of my Njr, but i dont think he takes on new work.
John Ostler did the other one i had, but hates working on them
Riiiight. Is anyone working on these rifles today? I mean, it's not like I can walk out the door and buy me a secondhand EV2 or a new FTP900.

Why not, you ask?
Because I shoot bleedin' cackhanded, that's why!

(plus it's not like I have a wad of money lying around waiting to be spent...)
The Filthy Pig: Air Arms 100 (1990) + AA Olympic trigger + Welham reg + Custom Shop CS1000 stock. Status: leaking.
The Unknown Quantity: AA EV2 Mk4. + BSA Platinum 10-50x60 + Jon Harris wheel. Status: sorted up to 25 yds.
The Limping Dog: Air Arms Shamal (1989) + unknown origin sporter stock + Optisan Cobra 3-9x42. Status: slowly leaking; needs work.
The Ox: HW97k + Venom Lazaglide. Status: working just fine; needs scope.
with apologies to NJR100
