Hello, I am a new member and I have a question. Here in Italy there are some good
gunsmiths but very few for rimfire, and there are a lot of legal problems also for to change the barrel. Looking in the past numbers of the online magazine Target Shooter
(www.targetshooter.co.uk) in the June 2099 issue I saw gun with Turbo action. That gun
now is for sale also in Italy. In the article they said that gun is made with Turbo action
but made by Kelbly, Lilja barrel and Kelbly stock. Do you know something about, as I
did'nt find anything in the Kelbly site?
Kelblys builds custom rifles also. I understand they build some rimfires and have built some good ones.
My guess is since they had a customer wanting a rimfire and they no longer manufacture a rimfire action they bought a turbo.
Also I will add, I believe Kelblys is also one of the places that has an import/export license.
Cicognani sells the Turbo/Kelbly rifles: http://www.varidecicognani.com/2009/
I bought one last year which has a Shilen ratchet barrel fitted and it shoots very well.
Edit: the February 2010 issue of Target Shooter shows a Turbo being built. I believe this gun is for sale by Fox Firearms. If you are interested give him a call, he’s not good with emails.

The rifle you refer to is currently on sale in the UK at Fox Firearms www.foxfirearmsuk.com
The Turbo action was barrelled by Kelbly's and bedded in the Kelbly SPG stock by me. It also has a Kelby trigger.
It is unfired save for proof rounds.
I own an Anschutz 1913 with factory s/s barrel but I am not very satisfied of the
accuracy. At this point or I find a gunsmith who can change the barrel with a custom
one or I am tinking about to buy a new gun and the turbo could be my choice.
I think it is forbidden of to send arms or parts of arms outside the UK.
There is no problem to send firearms or parts within the EU. They must go from dealer to dealer, but the paperwork is minimal.

probably a short test is insufficient for to judge a new gun.
