    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 low-pressure using trailboss. However, accuracy was not the goal as it was simple fun to shoot these old girls. Carbines from top to bottom are a New Zealandicon pattern carbine, an RIC, an MLE Carbine MkI, and two MLM carbines, one with its D ring still attached. Hope you all enjoy the pics.

    Love these old carbines, I have a mk1 metford carbine, it shoots point of aim at 25 yds using 115grn lead bullets over 6.5 grns of Vhit 340. Nice collection.

    Thanks for posting the pictures, smle addict. Its amazing how light fast handling these carbines are - like dancing with a beautiful girl.

    Beautiful little things. I love my carbine. Someday I'd love to shoot it on horseback.

    I know that Englishman has made some in the past (there is a thread). I actually found an RIC with a busted receiver but all the wood in great shape to put on my LEC that I bought sporterized with an MV stock. The guy at the gun shop thought I was crazy for paying $300 for a gun with a busted receiver...

    Very nice!

    I have a couple myself and will be using them at a D-Day 75th anniversary mil-surp rifle shoot here in Indiana next month.
