The BSA Magnum sits higher in the hand than say a Webley Tempest thus tending to amplify the muzzle lift upon firing, but nothing too excessive. I am aware of criticisms from other owners of the apparently less than comfortable grip, but have found it fits my hand quite well. The cutaway on the left side of the grip is filled by my thumb and the cutaway on the right side allows the first pad of my trigger finger to fall almost perfectly at rightangles to the trigger blade. I have also found it easier to cock than expected and am impressed with the relative sophistication of the sights. In terms of accuracy, I would say it’s at least up to the level of the Tempest and may even be a bit better once I get a bit more used to using it. Once again, I have found the RWS Hobby to be a good choice of pellet giving reasonable accuracy and cutting nice clean holes in the paper. What’s interesting, is that the certificate has been stamped endorsing satisfactory accuracy with 5 shots at 25 yds. As BSA predominately produce air rifles and these certificates seem to contain checks more relevant to rifles than pistols, I doubt the pistol was ever tested at 25 yds.

You can purchase the appearance and performance of a Gold Star for a lot less than the asking price of the genuine article. Many people have created their own replicas over the years, so if you’re buying on a budget and are not too fussed about originality then a hotted-up B31 or 33 could be ideal. Ask to see the supporting paperwork and talk to the specialist who did the work if looking at the latter.

That same advice holds doubly true if you are spending big money on a ‘real’ Goldie.

Starts on the button and rides without apparent fault.

BMW frame and engine numbers on Phil Hawksleys website. Plus loads of other BMW info. If the bike is known to the DVLA, then just apply for a duplicate registration document. Failing that, it is possible to recover the original registration number under the V scheme, details of which can be had from the VMCC Library. Briefly you would need some piece of paperwork to support an application to retain the original number for your machine.

Something like the old Log Book or an old tax disc would be ideal. Another option is a certified copy of the original record from the original registering authority. To find the name of the original registration authority and where it’s archive now is, needs a bit of detective work. Note that not all registration authority records have been saved in an archive, so you may be unlucky. Firstly you need to determine the authority that originally issued your registration number, that you can find here in this PDF file.

There’s a lot of information in the file and it has been put together in country England, Wales, Scotland etc order. Having found the name of the original registration authority, go to the kitheadtrust location list and you will find, hopefully, the location of the archive – then you need to contact the archive to obtain a copy of the original record, quoting registration, frame and engine numbers. I believe that some archives charge for the service, so be prepared for that.

Having obtained your evidence you would then need to contact the VMCC, who are authorised by the DVLA to operate the V scheme – you will need to complete the clubs A1 inspection form that the Library will send and, on receipt of the completed form, the club would then arrange for an inspection of the machine.

That was the estimate Bonhams had in mind for this piece of classic bike history when it came up for auction at the firm’s October sale at Stafford. A very respectable 57bhp was claimed with the maximum speed touching mph. But Hobbs was unsatisfied and took the bike to Ted “Barry” Baragwanath pictured left. Baragwanath, a well-known and well-respected Brooklands sidecar racer and tuner who also ran a motor repair business in North London and was noted for wearing a winged collar with his riding gear coaxed the horsepower up to around 65 from This was achieved by increasing the compression ratio to 8.

He often utilised actions from other manufacturers, particularly BSA full-bore and small frame Cadet , and built his own rifles around them. He also led the field with his own miniature calibre “take-down” designs. Few gunmakers could produce a truly reliable and accurate take-down target rifle; his own system, in which the action body was split below the barrel and clamped onto the barrel breech thread, became well respected and commonplace.

The catalogue, from which replications are here shown, is undated; however, it holds mention of Greener’s newly published edition of his book ” Sharpshooting for War and Defence” of which the ’emergency edition’ was dated October It appears that, with war imminent, W. It was apparent that sport shooting was no longer a priority other than for putting food on the table. We therefore believe the catalogue to be just prior to the Great War.

I address all Britons regardless of age or sex, because I believe that our wisest advisers in the remote and recent past have been right in urging us to adopt compulsory military training as the foundation of national security. It is the duty of Britons to serve our country, and rifle shooting is a form of service which provides recreation and fun, in conditions which require collective and individual discipline in its least irksome form. Some people believe that we are a nation of natural marksmen-as though there were such a thing as a natural marksman!

Back in , the DVLA started computerising vehicle registrations. Before then registrations were carried out by County Councils or Borough Councils, but Centralised Registration pulled all these records together onto a computerised system. Of course, many registrations were lost or not transfered by the various councils, and when all the old records had finally been entered by about there were still many vehicles that were not on the new register.
