    nice finds. Metal bits for the M10 shouldn't be too hard to find even if it means a donor rifle.

    I just shot the 1905 today. I was able to get a little 100yd range time in after work but before it got dark.

    Sooo what's this about the thin 1905 barrels not being accurate?? I was rather blown away by its accuracy, especially considering the following factors:

    1. It was low light. It was hard to get a consistent sight picture.

    2. I was using factory PPU ammo with the intention of fire-forming brass.

    3. The trigger is pretty stiff and probably needs to be cleaned up a bit.

    I shot two groups, a 10 shot and a 5 shot. In the 10-shot group 8 of them are inside of 1.5". The two flyers are almost certainly me or the ammo. The 5 shot group is still good but a bit less impressive as the light got very low.

    One very notable thing was the very minimal case stretch compared to Enfields. That blew me away.

    I can't wait to try my neck-sized hand loads in good light after cleaning up the trigger assembly. And the expectations have certainly been raised on the 1910!!!

    Just awesome rifles.

    Correction on case stretching: the body of the brass shows almost no stretch but the shoulder moved forward and the neck opened up considerably.
