We have created a form for ordering products from us (above) and will be showing this on all of the product pages shortly.
At long last we have updated our 'For Sale' page !
So we have started a Forum ! Why? you may ask - I have been on some of the forums currently available to 'shooters' and I am not overly impressed with what is on offer and especially the way that some of these forums are 'policed' by their moderators. I am not saying at this stage that we can do any better but as the software for the forum was easy to install and the administration does not look too daunting we thought we would 'have a go'. If no-one uses the forum and we decide it is a waste of time we will close it down - nothing ventured nothing gained ! If you would like to view our Forum you will need to register.

05-09-2011 - Our new showroom in Barnstaple should be open for business this week ! We are awaiting final police approval for the showroom/armoury and monitored alarm system. The new showroom will enable our customers to be able to view and feel the fit of our products prior to purchase. We still have the decorating and final finishing to undertake on the showroom (the boring bit) but have decided to get some products 'on show' as soon as possible. We will also be showing the Blackguns AR15 products.

More great products have been added to our 10/22 page !
We have decided to open a dedicated website for our 'Black Gun' products - this is currently under construction and can be found at www.blackguns.co.uk.
'Black Guns' - Yes, I know, I said I would not get involved with these guns - however, our business is customer driven and more and more people have been asking for an alternative supplier for these complete guns and accessories, so we have decided to enter this market. A new dedicated web page should be available within the next few weeks and during this time I would welcome input from your good selves as to which products you would like to see me offer. In the interim I will be contacting suppliers in the US to see what 'goodies' they can offer.

Sorry folks - we are getting hammered again with the exchange rates so some prices have risen. The prices of the KID parts have also been hit with an added cost as due to State Department legislation, we have been forced to change our purchasing arrangements within the US.
Do you want a new 10/22 style RFD custom Match Grade semi auto but are still unsure of the combination of parts that you require ? Have a look at our new page of Custom Combinations.
We are pleased to announce that we have just been awarded Section 5 status by the Home Office.
New for 2010 - We will be offering, early in the New Year, an RFD Target-Hunter barrel for those who wish to shoot competitively and also use the same rifle for vermin control.

More congratulations to Gwyn Roberts for his success at the recent Phoenix meeting at Bisley. Gwyn scored 1918 in the Bianchi which is a new UK and Phoenix record ! Rude Fat Dog works closely with Gwyn to finely tune his competition match guns which with his superb shooting ability help to maximise his shooting potential. In this picture Gwyn can be seen using his matched tuned stainless steel Marlin .44 - notice the customised Mover Base and Barricade Wings which have been developed specifically for the Bianchi competition.

A second page of KID products has now been added to the Ruger 10/22 section.
As you are all probably aware the GB£/US$ exchange rate is making all purchases from the US very expensive. We are painfully aware that the cost of the superlative KID trigger group is now beyond the reach of some shooters, who like us, must 'tighten belts' where possible. To this end I am seriously looking into offering a service for those who require their standard Ruger trigger assemblies to be made into something more 'user friendly'. After working on a number of standard Ruger triggers over the last few months I will be able to 're-work' your 'standard' triggers to give a trigger pull weight of between 2.5 - 3lbs. Anyone who is interested in this service, please contact me.
The new RFD Extended Magazine Release and Bolt Hold Open Lever for a standard Ruger trigger group has been added to the 10/22 section.
Thinking of purchasing a new 10/22 style rifle? - see the Competition Advice section for Gwyn Roberts' new article.
We are now stocking the great value MTM ammo boxes and reloading trays - please see the Accessories section.
If you need help or advice on how to shoot a better competition then please visit our 'Competition Advice' section.
There is a new button on the row above - 'Competition Advice'. Over the next few weeks we will be adding articles, advice and tips for helping you to attain higher scores in your club, postal or Bisley style competitions.
As you will notice, we are starting to change the 'look' of the website - we hope that you like the improvements !

We have just completed a custom Rude Fat Dog .22 SLR for Gwyn Roberts, multiple UK record holder, Welsh and UK squad shooter - have a look in the Build Gallery on the 10/22 section !
We have just received an email from Fausto C, whose custom Rude Fat Dog SLR is shown in the Gallery section, 'The looks and specification are exactly what I was looking for. I took the gun straight to the range where I fitted a scope and then tested the gun with fantastic results . . . . . this gun is the creme de la creme'.
We regret that due to the ever worsening exchange rate between GB£/US$ we are now having to raise the price of our Lee Reloading equipment.
Our prototype Long Barrelled Pistol, that we have named 'Xerxes', should be finished within the next two weeks. We have developed our own 305mm barrel for this pistol which is based around a Lothar Walther barrel liner.
We have more custom builds underway this week so new pictures will be in the Build Gallery section shortly.

Tactical Solutions - We are now in the position to be able to offer any of the UK legal parts that are available from Tacsol including X Ring receivers - these are not currently available in our custom guns as they have not yet passed our strict compatibility quality control standards. We can also supply the AR-22 M4, LT and MC uppers if you really twist my arm.
A comment from a customer who received his full custom 10/22 style SLR last week .....'faaan bloody tastic'
Pricing is now in the merchandising section.
I deeply regret that due to the appalling exchange rate all of the products that we purchase from the USA will be increasing in price as from today 11th September 2008. I will get the relevant web pages updated as soon as possible.
More custom RFD SLR's added to the Gallery Section
RFD 10/22 Magazine Pouches have been added to the 10/22 page.
The US State Department is being a real pain again with them about to impose a US$250.00 or 3%, whichever is greater, fee for all export applications whether successful or not ! - prices will have to increase very shortly. To add to these problems all bona fide US exporters will need to be registered with their State department before they can export. We have export applications with some US suppliers that have been in their system since May and are now 'on hold' until all their suppliers comply with the new legislation. This will hold up supplies of some products even more.
We will shortly be finalising the building plans for our new Distribution Centre which will include a machine shop and showroom facility - we expect the project to be completed by April 2009.
Magazine joining clips and barrel protectors added to the 10/22 page.

Bad news from across the pond - We have been advised that barrels that have been screwcut for moderators/compensators and high capacity magazines (above 10 rounds) are no longer being granted export licenses from the US State Department - we are looking at a 'work around' on the high capacity mags - we will keep you informed ! We will be offering a screwcutting service from the UK for barrels.
