    Let's face it, even if it IS what the seller says it is, so what? I am not a cartridge collector myself, but have known many and can't think of one who would be willing to shell out just shy of...

    I at one point also had several made in Canada for the Ross Mk II** target rifle, but they were lost in a move. I have never seen more since but they are obviously around. Purely for target...

    Baker rifle converted to percussion

    Does anyone know if there are any Baker rifle forums or sources of good information? There are some good articles on the net and I have most of the British military firearms books, and did until...

    I wonder if it could be British. I would agree that it could be a basic grade shotgun except for one thing, which is the gold engraving on the barrel. Usually the higher grade guns had the lettering...

    All of the above issues aside, I find it irritating that the description is SO poor for such a potentially rare and pricey rifle. The photos do not show the buttsocket marks--we had to find out it...

    It definitely did spend time overseas as the Crown BM proof mark is a Birmingham one, and the .303 Nitro Proof mark is also British. You say the bolt is mismatched--they were never numbered, except...

    Lovely collection! I used to own examples of most of those as well before a series of federal governments gradually made them illegal (unless completely neutered). That is a very nice FG42!

    Also, that front stock cut down job is terrible, so bad that the barrel band sits crooked. I can't imagine any unit armourer sanctioning a hack job like that! If the optics on the scope are good,...

    Thanks Jim! I didn't realize the Brens were used very much in the static position on the tripod. Everything I have heard about the tripods was how heavy and unpopular and little used they were, so...

    Fixed Line Sight for Bren

    I thought people would find this interesting. I was going through some stuff in my cabinets and rediscovered this in a box. I bought it at a gun auction in Saskatoon in the 1980's; it was in a...

    I wouldn't be surprised if he pulls the picture of the Circle T so no one else makes that disturbing connection.... :) But actually, no he won't. He puts a misleading title on the listing, then...

    I have owned about three over the years. Value depends largely on the condition. These were offered only in the 1905 sporter configuration, not in the 1907 (AKA Deer Stalker) which were .280 only,...

    I have owned a few over the years and finally realized I shouldn't trade them off since I just want another one. I haven't had one yet that didn't shoot really well, and although the barrel is...

    Is it still in .303? Might seem a silly question but a lot of Rosses were changed over to a variety of wildcat type cartridges especially in the 1960's. With no pictures hard to say--is it still in...
