    Chamois Hunt

    I went out for a quick weekend mission. Saw a few, scared the living daylights out of one. A nice weekend away.

    Awesome bit of country you were in, nice to see animals on a short trip like that, shame about the shot but we all miss sometimes.

    Good effort Stu. Shame about the miss but it made your video authentic because everyone misses, but not too many admit to it.

    Nice. Interesting with the last shot of the river and 36 hours after.

    Dose your rifle have an extractors or ejectors?

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

    All K95's have extractors only. With the rimmed cartridges the extraction is enough so if you tilt the barrel up the fired case will fall out. With a rimless round the extractor engages in the groove and you have to pull the case out by hand.

    What are the triggers like compared to the standard R93-R8 triggers Stu?

    I have been interested in a take down single shot myself.

    I have had a brief look at @K95 rifle but can't remember if I tried the trigger.

    The trigger is nice, better than my old R93, but from memory would be pretty similar to yours.
