    Hi

    I would like to contact Nick Murphy for a few reasons. I have recently purchased a walther and been told that the work was done by him before his zenith trade mark days. So I would like to get confirmation from the man himself also I would like him to service it aswell and get the official zenith stamp of approval on it.

    Cheers David Carter

    Apparently he's not taking any work on at the moment, not for the next 2 or 3 months anyway.

    Thanks Micky, I just want to ask if the Walther Dominator I just bought really is one of his. The seller says so and it has a Zenith sticker on it but I did read somewhere that the stickers where being sold on Ebay.
    I dont have the gun here yet, my bro picked it up for me in the UK and I wont be collecting it untill October(I am in The Netherlands)

    Cheers, Dale

    I would hazard a bet that Nick doesn’t put stickers in his guns but engraved it with Zenith. Just a thought but not sure.

    Looks very much like one of the transfers Nick put on my FWB when he’d worked on mine. I was there when he did it too. Once he retired from full time work he no longer had access to the the tooling he used for engraving non flat surfaces so uses these on cylinders/shrouds etc. He still engraves beautifully on actions & muzzle brakes and so on

    Hope that helps

    Hi mate I have a full Zenith Walther, when Nick does them he machines the reg so when his new cylinder goes on there is slightly raised ring where the cylinder meets the reg as your has from the picture.

    Also you shouldn’t be able to screw the cylinder off anymore, does away with possibly damaging the small nipple the cylinder screws on to.

    When I get home from working away I will post a picture of mine so you can compare

    Regards

    200 bar. Nick doesn’t recommend going over that.

    Hi Dale, as Rob says don’t fill them higher than 200bar or they can become very inconsistent until the pressure drops back below 200

    Other than that mate keep them clean and you have a pretty bomb proof rifle Enjoy!
