    How pedantic is it worth being about sourcing? Mainsprings, jewels etc? You'd have to be mildly demented to try and source some of those in the UK. Any movement design will - at the very least - be...

    I was attracted to this thread as I used to enjoy a bit of shooting years ago and was thinking of getting a gun again - couple of sensible posts on the topic then a minor meltdown by people willing...
