    I respect your beliefs but don't impose them on me.

    I have a .270 Monarch Featherweight that I am giving a much needed tidy-up.

    Does anyone have a magazine floor plate and a catch that they are willing to part with?

    I picked up a CF2 in 308 a last week. As expected it needs a wee bit of love, mag spring is broken but still there. Best place to find another spring?
    The other fun quirk the the floorplate catch is "sticky" for want of a better word. Push the catch in to release the mag floor plate and it doesn't like to pop back out. I've taken it out of the stock to give everything a clean but does it need to get stripped further, bits cleaned and oiled again?
    If you can't beat them, beat them.
    They will be expecting you to join them, so you'll have the element of surprise.

    This BSA started off standard and in british hand in ww2

    Following the war it was acquired by the Israeli's who made the scope and put it into sniper circulation.

    wood is not original, it was restored by Rodger Payne in the 1980's

    Shoots bloody well.

    possibly for sale in the near future... it's one I'll regret selling

    They never made a Majestic in 223. The Majestic 222 is based on the medium action, same as the 243 or 308 and you can get by with using a later Monarch stock for this model as well.

    @Sideshow has contacted me and asked me to re-post photo's of a BSA CF2 I purchased a year or more back. It is in the mighty .222 and was a little unusual . Firstly it had been a deer cullers rifle and the barrel was shot out.
    A guy I tracked down who had brought it off the old culler had it re- barreled and it shot very well with well under sub MOA with a variety of 50 gr factory ammo.
    However the most unusual feature was some very nice gun smithing with the making of a drop out box mag.
    The system worked well and feed good as gold when shooting.
    I have since on sold the rifle to a friend as for a left handed shooter it was very uncomfortable with that high sharp comb.

    Sideshow has further story / content to add to this little ramble which for other BSA shooters may find interesting.Name:  BSA 1.JPG
