    Very well - good hit rate on a 12" plate and consistently hitting a figure 11 target

    Waco,
    Is that my old rifle? Did you get it from Simon, Hythe sight and all?

    No, Gil....
    Its one of the original Anglo Custom rifles, built on a 1961 BSA matching upper and lower

    Mr Clark
    I find the Anglo custom rifles quite interesting with the SP modifications applied and curiously in a Straight pull rifle, the automatic fire design features deleted.
    New un-ported barrel
    Safety sear removed.
    Sear tripping spur removed from the bolt carrier
    Heavily modified bolt
    Pin mounted in front of the bolt carrier and matching hole machined into the receiver
    No Gas Tube
    Circular Bolt fitted into the Gas block to replace gas plug

    It always seamed a little 'over the top' to me, especially as the Imbel SP Fals had all the semi automatic features intact, including the piston on some early imports, with only the bleed hole not drilled.

    Anglo clearly used some fine measurements to make theirs stand out from the rest
    GGG was the only thing mine fired without too much hassle, but I must admit never tried my own loads.
