    Great pic Charlie, hard thing to photograph!

    I have to say your SMLE is a lovely dispersal example.

    I didn't doubt you Charlie, just not seen very often and I don't think I've ever held one. That bore looks about perfect...

    Thanks Jim. Pretty rare I guess, it's the only one I've ever seen.

    Trying to keep it that way, but it was made to be used.

    Shooting a few won't hurt it. Care and cleaning after...

    Thanks for sharing Thunderbox, perhaps we should start a dispersal rifle survey, like our recently started No5 thread

    It would be interesting to bring all this information together in one place.
