Re: Reme 700 floorplate

All fitted and the bolt seems to cycle the rounds smoother than before so I’m really pleased. Haven’t tested it in the field yet but looks as if it will do the job nicely. Handy having the extra round space too.
Thank you all for pointing me in this direction :thumbup:

Re: Reme 700 floorplate

Thanks for that....I can be known to be heavy handed....if I can’t fix it with a sledge or chainsaw... :silent: :oops: :lol: That looks half decent, only thing I can see might be a problem is as I shoot off a shooting bag on times I wondered could it possibly push on the mag release?? Not really a b...

Re: Reme 700 floorplate

Ordered and awaiting dispatch :thumbup: Swapped the thermal onto the Sako for time being, I can’t be doing with single loading the reme.. Good to hear the good reports about it though. Sounds a reasonable price for a change too which makes it even more appealing. So much easier having a loaded mag i...

Re: Reme 700 floorplate

Thank you Jock, crumbs that complete floor plate is expensive...duct tape it is then :roll: :lol:

Sounds a good option with the mags, guess that would be the ultimate answer. I also want a rail screwed to a Sako too so guess doing them both right would be the way to go. :thumbup:

Reme 700 floorplate

I’ve managed to snap the floor plate on my .204 reme vssf2... Can I get a bottom metal with a magazine that bolts straight on without gunsmithing? If I buy a new floorpate is it just as simple as push the pin out, new floorplate in and push the pin back through? Is there any loctite or anything need...

Re: Pan and tilt

Thanks for that Bruce! Only want it for at most a thermal riflescope so nothing too heavy. Thinking about it my ptz cameras move much faster and smoother than The Hague so can see how cctv pan and tilts are the way to go. Thing I like about The Hague is I use it off a tripod so just clip it to the t...

Pan and tilt

What’s the best or best affordable pan and tilt for roof mounting? Got a Hague at the moment which in fairness has lasted well except for going through a few cables and remotes. Could do with something a bit quicker and a little bit more elevation but before someone tells me go for a light force han...

Re: Pulsar XD75 accuracy issues?.

Just looked back at an old video and the large black + covers too much of the target at range which is why I changed. I also found it a faff zooming in and out and found the pip giving you that bigger fov for initial spotting and then just looking up for the shot suited me best.

Re: Pulsar XD75 accuracy issues?.

I can't tell you how different XD75's compare as I've never looked through another. I do have a guide 518 and I prefer the pulsar pic because it pick's out the background better. However I've heard of people who've had replacements and say the new unit's are better so there could quite well be sligh...
