I sent two messages to BRNO ZKK rifle ads asking if they had any spare parts to sell.

Just had a guy offer to send me for free, a front sight hood he'd bought years ago from the US.
I offered a fallow for meat to him or any mate he owes a favour to for being so generous. :drinks:


You might be able to get a Limbsaver recoil pad for it. I got one on my T3 Lite, very good fit and a lot more comfortable to shoot than the original recoil pad.
Browning BL-22 lever action...open sights
T3 Varmint .204 Ruger...Meopta Meostar 4-16X44
T3 Lite .30-06 Sprg...Aimpoint Hunter 1X red dot

....that will do me

just get back from a Melbourne trip with a new old baby on board and you guys are picking the BRNO's bones that I haven't even received yet. Coming from the other side of the continent that one.

Chronos, I think the phattaz recoil pad will stay on

Scott I will keep you in mind but I have a few vacancies already for the scope if it doesn't stay on this. May suit my 22H very well being fixed 4x.

Collector1; you aren't the guy I bought it from are you :lol:

Collector,

Finally :unknown:
Been sitting with my LGS since Monday. I rang them today and nope not seen it yet, chased up PackSend/TNT and back to my LGS and duddaaah !
Then they ring registry to check something....Unregistered? :shock:

I almost had a wee turtle head pop out and thought OFFS no wonder price was better than ok and postage included. ...
Phewwwwww, confirmed it's just never been registered to a private owner in Australia, been sitting on the owner/dealer's inventory since import !

:D back to smiling and ripping the scope and bridge mount off to check model etc.

I like it more now than first impressions of a bargain shooter. It isn't as blonde as the first photos, more like 80's tips or streaks, could be due to different man cave mood lighting.

The surface finish, bolt, bottom metals and barrel are not showing 34 years use. The "20 years stored" is plausible. Bore scoped it and a closer inspection of all bearing surfaces :thumbsup:

Will bang some holes in the target freezer today :clap:

Jap Tasco 4x40 Check out the WIDE angle view. A bit strange but should get used to it with use. Very clear and looked after.

Should do the job. Just a bit vintage looking compared to what's available these days. Although if you look as a new set of Sako/Tikka or Leupold rings on bases they aren't much different.

yeah Scott, not sure where he scored that but that and the sling and original sling swivels were an added bonus.
