    I'm after a new toy for full bore plinking on the ETR, if nothing else to save me a bit of cash. I can get through 200 rounds of .308 in a morning and I can't afford to do that too often. If anyone's got an AIA for sale, or knows someone who might be selling I'm interested.

  3. In the third image I get the distinct impression that I'm looking at five 99% identical rifles.

    Why not? You're not really using it. Sell it to a good home.
     
  7. Thats unbelivably ugly stoatman
     
  8. To reply to all:

    Scope = bushnell 1.5-5x20. I like short, straight scopes. Cost me about 90 quid, shot the groups below with it.
    Not really using it = not at the moment, no... wish I was/had the opportunity to.
    unbelievably ugly = it's called Frankenrifle for a reason.

    Beat 1/3 of the semi-auto shooters at a couple of short-range practical comps in Holland with it. short-range (20m and less) 42 shot stage in about 60 seconds, with movement and mag changes :D

  10. As an ex owner of one, I have to ask: Why? They are proper shit.

    Get something in 5.56x45/223 Rem. They are great for plinking.

    Tried Guntrader et al. Can I "tacticool" a CZ?

    Yes and if you get the American you get a good stock and longer barrel. Riflecraft did Claypig a lovely rebarrel of a 527 in Grendel so once the barrel is shot out a new calibre beckons or you could get an almost new barrel from me for a carbine!
    Boyds do nice 527 stocks and holts usually have one in auction!

    Sounds expensive. I'm after something cheap and cheerful for knocking over plates at 300m and with a bit of a military look to feed my walt tendencies. Holts have a couple of Rem 700's in .223 in their next auction. I might pop up and have look.

    Expensive? I don't think so I have seen them go for £100 or less for no other reason than they aren't remchesters!
