    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.

    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.
