    Brian:

    You are correct sir, and as sharp as ever. The early (1942) one I had was indeed replaced with British walnut, I assume when the barrel was swapped out to a five-groove. After all the...

    I'll go out on a limb and say you did alright. I have two 1943 BSA T's that look like yours; black paint (suncorite), differing wood. I have owned three Savages like the one pictured over the years....

    Bolt head pic and rear of bolt body stamp, from my L42A1. I have an L39 that is marked exactly as the L42, but it's at the back of the gun-safe and inaccessible.

    Very unique item. I blew up the stock disc and it looks like it reads "7. 38, HB NI 10."

    I did a quick internet search, and it could possibly be the 10th Hallamshire Battalion. Unsure of what the...

    A very nice and well-travelled No5 Mk 1. Fazakerly rifle manufactured in November of 1944. The little arrows are the "broad arrow" military ownership marks. The various others are simply proof and...

    Well, cant improve on gsimmons photos, but here are mine anyways. It's a good excuse to dig around the gunsafe. These early Mk 1***'s appear to be set up in the same way. Did my best to get the...

    Tatou,

    If you look in my pictures section, I have a wire wrapped Mk I*** posted. Not the best photos, but they may help.

    I know the wire on my rifle is really thick. I am out of town right now,...

    Took 8162 out today and put it through its paces with some HXP surplus and a variety of handloads. The HXP printed respectable 2.5-3" inch groups at 100 yards. Tried differing batches of handloads,...

    Good morning,
    I purchased 90L8162 last week. The rifle just arrived into California, and I had a chance to view it and snap a few pics. Since I live in this lovely state, I wont be able to pic it...

    Well, I can try and give you a rough estimate. I will give you the sum of the parts, and then what they might bring separately.

    The rifle is a genuine 1945 BSA -produced No 4 Mk 1(t). Very nice...

    I have a Globe base that fits the SMLE. I bought it out of Australia years ago, as I needed the Globe sight to put on my L39. When I get home from work this evening, I'll dig it out of the parts box...

    I saw the price you paid for it... You stole it! Very beautiful rifle at an unheard of price. As Roger already said, all legitimate and correct.

    I hope you enjoy it for many years to come!

    early carbines

    Was feeling a bit nostalgic yesterday, so I dug my lee carbines out of the safe for a range session. Accuracy ran the gamut from six inches to "meter-of-angle" at 100 yards! All loads were...

    CCL, possibly "converted, charger loader," or, "conversion, charger loader."

    Ditto on that. Every time I go to the range with an LE, someone asks either what caliber or type of rifle I'm shooting. When I tell them it's a Lee Enfield in 303, the response is the same; "I hear...

    Its a non-issue. The pierced primers are a sign of pressure in the other direction from the backed-out primers. I have seen asymmetrical in many of my rifles. I just full-length size and reload-on....

    You forgot option F): none of the above.

    Those deformed fired cases are normal for wartime Lee Enfields. I have a couple of No 4(T) Snipers that are harder on the cases than that. If you reload,...

    Not yet; I've been meaning to get the information over to him. I'll do my best this weekend if it rains; that's a good excuse for hiding in the garage and pulling all the Lee's out of the safe!
