I'll admit that to most of my acquaintances, I come over as being a mite odd, the kind of person you meet up with, chat a while, and then walk away, maybe thinking, hmmmmm, now what's he about?

Well, however odd I might seem, I do have one great thing going for me - I have some great friends, even at a distance - remote buddies, if you will. Sometimes we've had the opportunity to meet up and share some great times together, and sometimes the chances of ever actually meeting are slim, to say the least, but our contacts are greatly valued nevertheless. Like me and Frank over in The Netherlands - we never met, but we felt we knew each other pretty well, and there was great respect, one for the other

Things have not been easy for those of us who live here in UK who have tried hard to maintain any kind of business connection with folks in the USA who have become our friends over the years. BREXIT has been no friend to small businesses on both side of what would usually have been an inconvenient stretch of water and lump of land. To this end, many of us here have done without the things we would, prior to BREXIT, have been pretty much relegated to either picking up the phone, or just a simple buy now or buy-on-line.

However, over the years, I've been blessed with friends who are prepared to go the last mile to get around these problems, and my friends at Swiss Products have been foremost in this enterprise.

Helped out by my dear old pal Larry, now confined to a wheelchair for the foreseeable future, I got my Swiss Products over-bore mount this morning. I'll be fitting it this afternoon, and shooting with it tomorrow. It is probably the only one in the entire UK, and as such, makes one of my standard clamp-on mounts redundant. So if anybody reading this is in UK and fancies the standard clamp-on mount - send me a message here.

My heartfelt thanks go out to Pierre and Latigo, over there in Kalispell, and to Larry, just west of Portland OR, who also enclosed a bunch of little American flags for me to put on my railroad locomotives.

Tac,
Remember that it takes very subtle tweaking of the deflector to get clean ejection. The tweaking may be either the forward section, the rear section or possibly the middle.
Our experience with field testing was a very small degree of angle change to the rear of the deflector , and that was dictated by the ejector itself. It simply depends on the wear and the angle of the rifles' individual ejector. Only half a degree will make a difference in direction.

A little "fine tuning" on my earlier post: test with fired cases. A dummy round has additional mass with a bullet, so its "ballistics" as it bounces off of the deflector are different. So, test with both to be sure.

Leon it is absolutely correct. We did all of our proofing with expended brass only as the deflector will not act the same with a loaded cartridge.
