    Theoben UK has officially gone into administration.

    I can't really see it being saved in any way as all rights I presume will be owned by Theoben USA.

    Oh dear. That's sad news.

    I think the Evo .22 that Brigitte won at Cambridge could well be the very last one made.

    Did you manage to get your cocking shoe replaced in time?

    All Theobens just became collectors items.

    I was sitting outside the place this morning with the only employee left to find out what was happening.
    He found out and left!
    No new cocking shoe and no answer to the bent barrel they fitted to it in the first place.
    That'll be why I run out of elevation adjustment on my scope.

    Does ben taylor have nothing to do with it at all and surely spares will still be available somewhere?
