Agreed Will, but then you are back into paying top dollar. I was told to avoid "travellers" which has nothing to do with caravans, but would require an extensive knowledge of the guns that are out there changing hands. The best way to pay sub £500 - £550 it seems to me is to try to source one from outside of the FT community that has sat in a cupboard for ten years, but they are not going to be easy to find.
So Will, when you buy that walther/steyr or similar I'll be around with the begging bowl!!
