    Crab I am not sure of the difference to a gem as i have never liked to look so i have nothing to compare too. I must say that the temptation to obtain a gem is getting the best of me. I could have got five and declined the offer. Arse kicking moments

    It is like comparing a vw beetle to a Bently. The Brittania is built like a tank. i have one and it will outlast my offspring for generations to come.

    I have one which has been sitting and staring at me in a reproachful way for several years. It is begging to be restored, or at least given enough puff to push a pellet out of the end of the barrel. At the moment it can just about pop a pellet out and drop it on my foot.
    I would be very happy to hear if anyone has some technical info or advice on how to proceed.
