    Ross 1910 mkIII unissued stock

    Maybe Gordon needs some un-numbered wood to complete his barreled action?

    M85 at 1,000 yds

    Its a long time (12 years) since I managed to shoot my M85 at 1,000 yds. I'd had the scope off and back on since then so a zero session at 300 yards and 600 yards was required. I had to refer to...

    Slings for Krags

    I'd heard about that use of these early Mills slings for the Krag but apparently there is very little documentary or photographic evidence. How long is your sling? Mine is about 43.5 inches - a bit...

    Sling, Rifle, Web, G.S. (Mark 1)

    A very early sling which was accepted into service on 31st Jan 1901. An interesting date in that it pre-dates the introduction of the SMLE in 1902. On 13 Nov 1903 the sling design was altered so that...

    Thanks
