Was up in the bay of islands over the weekend. While in Kerikeri we stopped in at the lgs and had a look at the s/h rifles, came out with a bsa sportsman 5 with 2 mags for bugger all so I've either got a mag to sell which are hard to come by or look for another rifle minus its mag..

Today we spent the morning at the Waitangi treaty grounds, they have done it up since we were last there and the displays are pretty well thought out. The one I was most interested in was the building dedicated to the Maori battalion as Im interested in military type things. We were also there at rhe right time to see a cultural performance as well. Then it was off on the ferry to Russel for the afternoon for a look around. Never seems to change much that place which I guess is a good thing...

Time to get out of Auckland for the weekend. Decided to head up to the Bay Of Islands for the weekend. Left after work on Friday and got here around 10pm. Awoke this morning to a beautiful day and some nice views from our room

How i use brass bore brushes is get one thats the correct caliber and i just run it up and back down the bore once and dry. Dont change directions while the brush is in the bore. I find it scratches the surface of the copper or carbon in the bore which helps the solvent work into it. After the brush run a wet patch of your solvent up the bore and let soak, then clean as you normally would.

Finally got this project finished bar the leather sling. Had it at the range today for final sight in. As per the other thread it shot incredibly well. the retro redfield scope looks good and is nice and clear and has the simple duplex reticle. Now I need another project.
