    By the way, these items were from the Alexander Massie estate. The late Mr. Massie was a fairly serious militaria collector with a particularly large and high end medals collection. The bulk of it was sold in Englandicon about 12 years ago after his passing. His wife only recently discovered that he had firearms well hidden in the basement!

    Doug

    Well, not quite in person, but the next best thing to it...

    Check the MKLicon for a detailed 137 photo pictorial with lots of close-ups of a Pattern 1913 "Trials" Rifle (.276 in.) (click here) in the United Kingdom Knowledge Library (click here).

    That's the very first No.4 Mk.I trials rifle that I've ever seen that WASN'T converted for scope use. It might be rarer than the "rarer" rifles, if that makes any sense.

    No overtime this year makes the prices seem even higher. But still nice to know there's good gear circulating a bit.
