Re: My SMLE No1 MkIII* veteran of two world wars

Here you go, Lee Enfield "Balkan Carbine" with partizans.
Look at the muzzle to see the mods for Mauser bayonets & so on.
Some were "Long Tom" Lee's cut down to carbine length & fitted for Mauser type bayonets , looking at the magazine I think this was one f them.

Re: B.O.H.I.C.A. Here we go, off to the races again!:

I've been reading that.
Just a few short years ago even if it was what was secretly wanted no-one would openly mention it.
Now they seem to have utterly lost their minds to do so.

Agreed but "they" are going into a frenzy of "self change" to achieve the same old goals & its smart to keep holding their feet to the fire when they do this kind of thing.
We have a new & self avowed Socialist group rising within the Democrats & they seem to be welcoming of it.

B.O.H.I.C.A. Here we go, off to the races again!:

The bill is ambiguous and would be far-reaching. For example, they explain that HR 7115 does not “make a distinction between upper and lower receivers” for AR-15s and similar upper/lower receiver types and would make “home gunsmithing” illegal. :icon-rolleyes: . Ironically, firearms built from 80 pe...

Re: Our World War

If you like slightly different movies about veterans try finding one starring Alec Guinness, Leo McKern & Lauren Bacall called "A Foreign Field".

Re: Enfield no 1 Mk 5

Prices are insane.
My Sporterised No5 Mk1 is worth about $350 (street value)!

My ShtLE No1 MkIII with the P-H 5A is going for $650(ish)!
My No4 Mk2 unwrapped mummy is worth more now unwrapped & fired than it was as a minty mummy when I got it.
& so on & so on.

Re: Enfield no 1 Mk 5

The glossy finish devalues it as its no longer "Original" but sheer scarcity of the trials rifles (only 22,000 made) drives the price All matching & very nice condition (except the refinish)drives it further. If it's $2,200 refinished imagine what it would go for in mint condition!

Re: My L1A1

Excellent inch pat.
Nope all L1A1 Ess El Arr were fitted with a 3 or a 5 slot long flash hider. Some "special;s" were bare muzzles.
Am I nutz or is there something odd about the rear of the charging handle slot?
There seems to be some kind of "cover" over the rear 3rd?

Re: No.4 Mk1 reare sight?

Remember with the stamped rear sight you also need the little spacer as its thinner than the "L" flip or the singer cast type.
