Gutted for you. EV2 and scope if you want to borrow. As above can't see anyone who knows about FT not recognising these are special. Might be better if pictures weren't posted in shops but just let shops know - guess that's the idea.
I think it makes us all worry. Were they at home?
Hope you get them back soon.

It's not much consolation right now, but have been reading a thread about a guy who had his 4000 Jones mountain bike with space frame fork found that was stolen 4 years before. The bike was taken into a bike shop for a puncture repair. The guy who worked there didn't think the bike matched up to the person who bought it in ( pretty unique expensive bike) so he posted on the forum. Someone remembered a post from 4 years ago, and put 2 and 2 together . The long and short of it was that the bike was positively id'd and the owner ( after coming to an arrangement with his insurers ) and he was getting it back.
Can't beat the power of the internet to make the world a smaller place.
Hope you get them back.
( as a side thought , how many have their rifles properly insured , and are there any specific requirements your insurers have as to storage etc)

That's a real bummer. Hope you get them back soon and the scrotes that took them will be brought to book. I'll put this post up on the airgun forum.

Gutted for you Chris.
I've got a few bits n bobs but no spare rig. But if you need a spare stock or scope etc and some slugs let me know and we can see what we can rustle up.

Hopefully the police have a good lead to follow.

Hi revs,

Yep, they were specified as extra on the insurance, but for me it's not about the cash value, it's what they meant to me, they mean so much to me and have some poignant memories too.

I would urge everyone to register your kit as a separate entry if you can.

Thanks again all, will make sure I get some images up.
