I think a good few shops are working with online deliveries so the lads will be in the shops to take any calls.Look on Facebook and from the ones I look at they are open for calls.

Don't forget to browse the gunshops up north, you may find what you're looking for there.

Just a thought-do you need a separate ammo safe as well as a gun safe.Saw something about new EU regulations

I bought a small safe out of woodies or somewhere, less than 50 sheets, its as good as you need unless you are storing cartridges by the ten thousand.

Well guys it looks like the MK38 sporting for me then as Miroku dont do left handed in this part of the world.
Dismissed the trap version as its fixed chokes
I can always get a left hand stock made if I need
Os course I could be using totally absurd logic here

Have you considered the Benelli 828u ? The stock bolts up to the back of the action like a semi-auto. You can adjust for fit with shims.

Took a look.
TGS review showed some problems like the trigger mechanism falling out etc-not so good
Nice looking gun but pretty pricey

Hi OP, why Miroku if I may ask? Miroku are Browning really. Miroku actually make all of Brownings guns in Japan for Browning and then some of the higher grade Brownings are sent to Browning in Belgium for hand finishing but a new 525 Sporter One is essentially a new MK38. Both newer models are multichoke. Browning comes in a case and the Miroku comes in a cardboard box. Miroku are beautiful guns as are Browning, but functionality wise they are the same really.

As you move up the models of Browning you will find a comparable Miroku model. You will find it much much easier to find and buy a new Browning in the South compared to a Miroku. You may even have to import a Miroku because I dont really know any Miroku dealers. My club is in Leinster and Ardee Sports Company is where I buy alot of my guns/kit. They are a Browning stockist but they dont sell Miroku.

I bought a new 525 Sporter One this year from Ardee and I have the brochure in the house. In the Browning brochure there is a 2 page section for Miroku. Further shows just how in bed Browning are with Miroku. Outside of the name, you are buying the same guns.

One thing I do like about Miroku is they do a Teague Choke version and their guns are marginally cheaper than Browning.
