    Hi, from Nth. Co. Antrim, N Ireland

    As above, I am joining this forum because today I quite unexpectedly** found(while repairing a loft ladder for my mother, which involved lifting flooring in the roofspace)

    My grandfathers UVF rifle, a L.E. I, dated 1898, Ser No. 5202 N, with a broad arrow stamp on the brass buttplate with the No. 540 beneath.

    The rifle has a foresight protector, volley? sights, and the magazine is retained by a single link of chain. I believe there is a magazine cut-off fitted. I also found the matching bayonet.

    There is light surface rust to the outside of the barrel, but the bolt and action are spotless and slick

    Fortunately I am a long time member of a rifle and pistol club and hope/am reasonably sure I can add this rifle to my F.A.C.

    Perhaps someone on here can advise if I can still get suitable 303 ammunition for this very early? L.E. rifle.

    **Unexpectedly, since I scoured the farmstead and farmhouse some 50 to 45 years ago, searching for Grandfathers UVF rifle, obviously without success. I imagine a mischievous bachelor Uncle planted the seed, or perhaps it was seeing a photo of Grandfather on horseback in uniform, with his rifle. And I really must track that photo down.

    Regards,
    Marcus
