“Coming to an RFD NEAR YOU….”

Just to tease you a little further I thought it might be an idea to give you all an idea of what is in the pipeline, these weapons are in the export process as I write and will soon be available (end of Jan09 to Feb 09) for us all to pour over and purchase.

These items will have to be proofed before sale so please be patient, but once they have arrived they will be available for inspection and reservation if wished. (pics above descriptions, click on to enlarge)
