    Hi all,

    Most of you know me, so any help is much appreciated.

    Last night, Saturday 28 June 2014, both my Zenith rifles were stolen. most of you know what they look ilike as they are unique, but below is a spec of both.

    The red Zenith was taken in its case, A black FT Monki one, the green one was taken on its own.

    Zenith Serial No. 003 (anodised green)
    White camo soft touch FT stock.
    Anodised green Zenith action, quick fill cap.
    Polished titanium sleeve.
    Low rise mounts in black.
    Leopold Competition scope. Anodised silver 45 mag with target dot ret.
    Silver sunshade, flip up cap.
    Rear rubber eye cup.

    Zenith Serial No. 003.1 (anodised red action)
    Red, green and brown laminate ft stock.
    Anodised red walther block with oversize long cylinder, quick fill screw on cap.
    Silver lion engraved into the block.
    Polishd and heat coloured titanium sleeve with 'every of has its day'
    Leopold quick release mounts in black.
    Leupold Competition scope, black 40 mag with target dot ret. Sunshade and flip up covers.
    Large black FT Moniki soft box case.

    My new yellow On-One custom build hardtail mountain bike was also taken.

    I will post some photos when I get in work tomorrow, but any help in finding these will be much appreciated. I will tell my local gun shop today, and if anybody wants some written info from me to hand in to theirlocal gunshop I would be very grateful.

    Please pm or email me if you can help.

    Obviously I am gutted, everything I have has gone, so it might be a while before I am at a shoot!

    Cheers guys, hope you had a good day at Newbury,

    Cheers

    Make sure you leave the details with any cash converter type establishments in the area.
    I see a lot of expensive things being "pawned" by ..let's just say... People who who don't look like they would have those things in their possession legally.
    Not wanting to start a debate on anything I've said above, but it might be worth letting them know

    Chris shocking and devastatingly sad news pal. I've shared this on Facebook with my associates in a lot of the popular air rifle groups in there. Perhaps what's in your favour is they are unique one of a kind items easily identified.

    I really feel for you pal and I've got a spare Steyr your quite welcome to have to keep you in business until your sorted, just let me know.

    I really feel for you Chris, if you have pics it might help in the recovery of these unique rifles as many will have no idea what a Zenith looks like.

    I'd be heart broken of mine were stolen, good luck with their recovery.

    Gutted for you mate!

    Will spread the word in SW clubs. Hope the guns turn up, the leups are obviously more portable and saleable so will make everyone aware for them as well.

    Cheers guys, just spent 3 hours with the police going through everything. Its clearly an inside job, the way things were moved and taken shows that. They even took my kit bag, gloves, boots, air 300bar 3ltr bottle and my wellies!

    Only just got used to the new bike too, it was real beauty but I guess that will be stripped to parts by now.

    Thanks all for your offers, I may have to take you up on it, and thanks for the support, it's gutting to say the least.

    See you soon,

    Chris

    It's a bit strange if they targetted your kit Chris, as it's so specialised and unique. No-one on the circuit would dare to use it as it'll be so obvious. Hopefully, it'll be sighted and the scallys will find themselves on a receiving charge, if nothing else.

    I know Jerry. We had some work done 3 weeks ago, so they must have weighed it all up then, things were hidden and would not be obvious to anyone just by chance. They knew where things were - the police said it was obvious - and it was. They also took all my Express pellets, and I dont have a tin so I cant even tell you what the batch number was, over 25 tins of them!

    I would never suggest for a second by inside job I meant of our community, I couldn't wish to know a better bunch of people. I am genuinely touched by the kindness and offers of help.

    I have had those guns since they were 'born' and they meant so much to me. I hope they will turn up, but probably not or totally knackered, guess the scopes will never be seen again though.

    These things happen but it doen't help telling myself that at the minute :(

    i will put some images up tomorrow, cant get access to them today, and if anybody hears anything I will be so grateful,

    Cheers

    Chris
