1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    yeah they certainly do.

    I was going to get one of these but went for the anschutz 1517 in the end.

    One of my mates has one, they are very light and pointable, and in general very small, nice gun to shoot and the mags pretty useful with one in the stock.
    Triggers a bit heavy is the only thing I wasn't a massive fan of but I like triggers to be very light so probably have a skewed opinion.

    The trigger is what put me off.

    There is no trigger kit available for the T-Bolt either or at least there wasn't a few months a go.

    Ha by chance I have a 455 varmint, I absolutely love it, I've put a trigger kit on it but thats about it. Its a bit heavier and the bolts a little bit stiff but not terribly so.
    Both are nice, I prefer the 455 but just because I own it.

    I do quite like the rotory mag and the space in the stock to hold the second one of the t bolt, the only problem is the rounds in the one in the stock tend to rattle a bit when stalking but thats easily fixed by keeping it empty or in your pocket. I don't think my mates had any cycling issues and I quite like the mag being flush to the stock. But the 455 mag doesn't stick out much and they are a bit easier to load.

    I would definitely consider the anschutz 1517 if I was you.... its the best of the bunch in my opinion even though its more expensive its definitely worth the extra.

    Build quality is second to none.... accuracy is spot on....

    I really want to try an anshutz at some point to see what they are like, worried I will end up falling out of love with the collection of cz's though and I can't afford to upgrade them :p

    The T bolt is good rifle, but as previously said there isn't a trigger kit for it, some peeps like a heavy trigger , around 3 1/2 pounds as std,if you want a light say 2lb trigger then don't go for the t bolt.
    I too have bought a 452 varmint.Heavy bolt,heavy rifle, heavy trigger,but the trigger kit sorted the trigger out.
    My favourite by far is the sako finnfire hunter,its knocks em all into a cocked hat, lovely adjustable light trigger,feeds lovely doesn't jam, medium weight,and clinically accurate, if you can find an unshortened one buy it, its awesome.shortening the barrel ruins the accuracy.

    Not meaning to disagree they are a good rifle without doubt. I have a 1517 and a CZ 452 lr and I think the CZ build quality is fantastic for the money. A proper tool fit for purpose. The safety catch is better and easily operated in the dark. Also none of that messing about with extra catches when removing the bolt. No need for the trigger kit, just adjust the factory setting.

    I think the CZ barrels are fine and certainly out shoot me.

    End of the day it's about £300 cheaper which is quite a lot.

    We all rate what we own, but I'd never change my CZ.

    I have the .17 T bolt Varmint. Its a lovely rifle, but the trigger takes some getting use to. If you can come to terms with the trigger, its a great package and well worth the money. But, and its a big but, if I had my chance to purchase again, then I would go for the 1517. Trouble is, I have made my bed, and lay in it I must. Happy shopping, and don't shoulder the T bolt as its a great feeling gun and very pointable. Just go straight for the 1517. Enjoy, KB1

    It's all personal preference , I've owned a cz 455 varmint at first I loved it , shot a ruger m77 mk2 stainless and bought it very nice accurate rifle and we'll built .

    Had a shot of the Annie 1517 thumbhole match 64 trigger , not saying this as I own one but the accuracy is the best I've had compared to the ones I've owned and fired in the past , my second best accuracy has to be the ruger m77 mk2 I had .

    Here's my current 17 which is the Annie 1517

    Hi Jonesy, is it worth a £100 more than a sak or Parker hale? I think it's the only known brand one I haven't tried.

    Cheers

    Hi mate , in my opinion yes it is .
    Don't get me wrong sak and Parker are really good moderators for their value , the swift nightingale is very effective and you can open it up a clean it after use , I have the swift stumpy on my Annie now which they are priced between £39-£45 they are also very effective and a nice look to it on the rifle in a matt black , you can't open the stumpy to clean it though , I should of kept the swift nightingale off the cz .

    Will get another eventually .

    Another cracking moderator is the DM80 ...

    I have a Dave Mercer 80 on my Browning T bolt. Whilst its a lovely mod and the build quality is outstanding, I think all the other mods Sak, Atec, wildcat, all perform to the same standard with .17hmr. I wish I had saved all that money back in the early days and just stuck with the cheap old Sak. KB1

    Hi, you can open it up. Look at the business end and further inside you'll see a large Allen or Torx key needs to be used. It comes apart then.

    Cheers
