Update on my 2 Mac1 SEs - Still with forensic firearms, UK customs said it could be several weeks before they return. I should know if there is an issue if I get Armed police knocking at my door again. That said I do prefer them to knock on the door in the evening than smash it in at 6.00am.

What set off an alert to the authorities to hold and test the LDs? Did Tim reduce the power before shipping them out?

Yes Larry, the MTC are very good and have an excellent rep. Just fitted it to the Stealth gun, just waiting for the snow to stop then I can have a go.

Re the 1300, just an impulse buy really, just in case it was a short run, still not convinced though. I have a couple of these 1300s already, both in bits though.

Gary... sad affair but you take it well in stride, good man :-*

If you saw or heard our dear-leader's Imperial speech last night, he trotted out all of the usual "victims" and neer-do-wells from recent shootings in an attempt to coerce our congress to "vote" (his words) on guns. Problem for him is, our Constitution, Articles and Amendments are not vote-able, they are inalienable rights that can only be altered by a huge percentage of congressional vote and state ratifications. This is where the lefties and socialists (his court jesters)  ignore something as silly and outdated as a Constitution >:(  Why... isn't anything in our law or any right up for debate and popular vote by the unwashed masses? Maybe we can have Kim Kardashian and Piers Morgan weigh in on it and whatever they decide on an American-Idol sing-off competition will be the new law of the land?  ??? :D Simon Cowell for President!

Ok, jumping off me sopabox now... cheers mate
I have me gun safes, lockers and ammo caches to the full mark over here, the dear-leader is welcome to stop by anytime to "take" them.

Larry I think it was a chance thing.

The parcel prior with the DAQ contained a Mac1 LD with a 16" barrel and buddy bottle but the body still said Mark 1 Target pistol. Because I had the SEs engraved they just did nor recognize them as standard guns. I hope Tim made them as ordered because if not aside from the potential consequences to me will lose be a bag of money. Which in fairness if they are over 6ft I will probably not need the money for a short while.

Tim sent me the correct springs for the LDs separately and I can use them in standard Mark pistols with safety, so really with a standard spring the SEs should be in the 5-6ft lb territory (hopefully) or as Tim put it eloquently on the phone as mouse fart power.

The danger is that our forensic firearms people can at times be a bit too enthusiastic and will keep swapping pellets out till they get the guns over power.

#Brian - With the efforts I make to get some of these unique and rare parts/guns I have to accept there will be some risk attached and at times I will cock up in what I buy, it adds to the fun I suppose. It would be boring if it was easy all the time. Some parts have taken several months and oodles of money, emails and negotiating to obtain.

I saw what you glorious leader was saying on the TV, personally I can't see him getting anywhere with that, looks to be saying what he thinks the worldwide public want to hear, just the same as our politicians do, whichever way it goes (fingers crossed for you) you will still have quite some way to go before you get to UK legislation standards. Over here in a lot of quarters owning a feeble powered airgun seems akin to being a mad axe murdering maniac !!

I am quite surprised the Leapers rets on the 4-16 is not actually thick..It's thinner compared to the 1 on my 3-9 of the same brand..Gonna test this 1 sise by side w/ my 4-12 Hawke..
