    The Ishapore rifles seem to be well made and good shooters in general. In addition, your example may be rare. Depending on the price it should be a good buy. More photos would help the experts to...

    These sights are much more accurate to use than you would expect. Not made for long distance sniping, but battle sight ranges. It is much easier to shoot reasonably accurately in the dark with...

    Wouldn't have soldiers hanging around a flail tank clearing a minefield like that.

    The calibre seems to be more than sufficient, be it 303 or 30-06.

    Doesn't look like the front sight had a hood and the milling of the ears was done locally. Then the pad. Probably saw the BSA...

    Due to the sentimental value I agree with mmppres post #6. Take the metal out of the wood. Clean both properly. Replace the horrible sights with something better. Reblue the metal. Replace the...

    Interesting that the Geman optics and attachments in WWI were so much better and easier, but the Brits didn't learn from and copy them. Possibly NMH is the reason [not made here]. Seemed to be...

    Don't know about M14 mags. FAL 30 round mags worked well but after some hundred rounds, the bullets made dimples in the front of the magazine from the inertia during firing. Caused cartridges to...

    Without altering anything, buy a boot that slips over the butt [easy on/off]. Adds at least an inch to the length of pull and changes nothing to the rifle. Been using one for shooting competitions...

    A light press in a vice might just add that smidgen of length. Use might have widened the magazine just that much to make it loose.

    I understand wanting another magazine, I would also want to have more, and do have. However, always keep in mind the LE was intended to be loaded with chargers, not other loaded magazines. Soldiers...

    The flame at the muzzle is real under those conditions in the shade [not muzzle blast, which is the sound and shock wave effect]. Were you to shoot in full sun or with different ammunition the flame...

    Entirely possible and probable.

    The R4 had the stock lengthened to fit the South African ergonomics. The initial shorter stocked Galil purchase possibly later retrofitted.

    I'm reasonably certain this was one of a the 'truck guns' made by various gunsmiths in South Africa 30-35 years ago. The No 4 rifles were readily available, R1/R4 folding stock, shotgun pistol grip,...
