So doubled my budget and managed to find a hardly used BSA 10x50x60 complete with sharks fin and mounts.
I did not like the sharks fin at all so I machined myself a new 200mm diameter side wheel and bigger
top turret which luckily only cost me my time.

Today I decided to buy a Barry Taylor adjustable scope rail as I could not get the scope anywhere near my eye without being really uncomfortable
Fit the rail and scope and now the rifle will not fit in the case

I still need to pick up my bottle and gauge and also purchase a shooting cushion, flip up scope cover and Bisley scope enhancer
I almost forgot I still need to purchase some pellets

Cannot wait to get shooting and meeting some of you guys and girls and hopefully by middle of January I will be fully sorted
Dont forget in this game they also charge for AIR
I am the weakest link
