Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I was wondering if any Sapper or Ex Sapper had an info on the fore mentioned piece of equipment.
    I work for a civvy company interested in making these.
    Any info or assistance would be appreciated.
    Especially the L2A1 cartridge.
  2. Cheers Knocker

  4. sorry i am not eod, :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops:
  5. Sensible! :lol:
  6. aye. :D :D :D :D
  7. Are these things not patented? Is your company able to just make them themselves? Licenced production would give you all the tech specs you needed (for a fee).

    meridian LE Good Egg (charities)

    Wonder where they got the idea for this from then


  9. The pig stick and ram rod were made by the same company that made the shrike.
    An old TA OC of mine worked for them somewhere near Poole in Dorset. I can't remember the name of the company, but if you google shrike you might get a lead.
  10. They were AB Precision (known in the trade as 'AB Near - Enough') Now part of the Chemring Group, based in Poole.
  11. Cheers guys for the info, been a great help, googled it and found some info that will be helpfull.
