My new Waters Rifleman 10round magazine for the Lithgow turned up in the post today.. definitely pricey, but Im impressed.. *smiles* ive just dry cycled 20 dummy rounds through it and it seems spot on.

And then it occured to me....

Aussie made rifle...
Aussie made magazine...
Aussie made ammo..

Come on lads, how about that OI OI OI ? Haha

IMHO, this is how a rifle SHOULD look : )

You won't get any Oi Oi Oi from me... All you will get is ...yet another company taking advantage of s**t cheap labour to take jobs away from genuine Aussie's.

Like Blunstone Boots and another number of companies explointing cheap labour..

What's your Warranty worth when the world ditches anything to do with China.....??

Another thing.... Are you that bad a shot that you need a 10 round magazine...?? Most people fire a round or two and their prey has headed for the hills even if you have two kills in quick succession, the rest are gone. 10 shot mags are for yuppies that can't shoot.... :allegedly:

You would be talking about ADI yes....!!!! Tahles Group ... but at least it's manufacturing is all based in Australia...

The Wood Pulp used to make smokeless powder is imported from Europe.

Did you have a bad day mate.? Sounds like you need a cuppa tea, a bex and a good lay down lolz.

As for me being a bad shot.. its got FA to do with hunting... Some of us non-fudd types go to places called shooting clubs and engage in timed practical shooting matches where, basically a 3 round magazine puts you at a massive disadvantage..

And yaknow.. maybe I have hoards of zombie deer attacking me simultaneously and my phase 6 plasma rifle has over heated
