Schmidt Rubin, Model G11

The country that avoids war and the country that fights but has a hard time winning have been combined. The Swiss made some excellent firearms and the French made some unique and occaisonally inspiring ones.

ABFC

ALL BEEN FECKIN CHANGED.................................

I got a letter from the French Customs today asking for 3 signed copies of the request for importation of the rifle AND copies of my ID and FFT Licence. I think the bastards make it up as they go along................I reckon that will put it back at least another 2 weeks. :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

That means no shooting till June Image

Nice!

It's the milsurp ammo. Or at lest a photo cropped pic of some :|

That lot was made February 13th 1981. It's outstanding ammo.

NaturaBuy sounds like a place to get a salad or something.

OK - sitrep as at 20:07 26/05/17...........

I have now sent the seller in Germany a copy of the signed and stamped import document that was received by the French customs on 20/04/17 and signed by them on 18/05/17..................received back by me 25/05/17, as well as a copy of my FFT Licence and my Passport.
Apparently the documentation will take another 10 days in Germany and then they will send the rifle. Expected delivery date is therefore W/C 12th June :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :SWI: :SWI:

Did they actually come from China or from California? I've used them for years and interestingly enough I ordered a replacement pair today from Novato, California. www.zennioptical.com

Karl, that's what my daughter told me. They may be reshipped from California but I think they are actually made in China. The online site says two people in California started the company. Can't find on their present site an mention of where the glasses are actually made. But... if you look at this page.... the technicians sure look oriental.

http://www.zennioptical.com/zenni-optic ... tion-story :bigsmile:

If the glasses are questionable as coming from china... I did order something from china on June 16. I know it is coming the basic postage way. I'll see if it gets here before Duncan's rifle gets to him.

When I asked WHY the delay the reply was "German Authorities" In other words they couldn't organize a Pissup in einem Bierkeller

I just bought a frog for the bayo too soooooooooooooooooo.

Original delivery quoted was around 20 days - so far it has taken 102 days!!
I now have 100 rounds of ammo, a set of reloading dies, bullets, a bayonet and frog, stripper clip, sling, snapcaps and of course the Import Licence..
