    NZ Lithgow outing

    Just because I never need an excuse to show pictures of my Antipodean lady....

    Spent a hugely enjoyable day yesterday with a fellow Milsurper, converting live into empty with our L1A1's in the ( mostly) sunshine.

    You have to love that L1 'chime' from the flash eliminator ... Especially in stereo!

    You're right. From, say 1961 or so onwards, when all of the initial in-service teething troubles had been worked through, such as crap method of attaching the gas cylinder, razor sharp edges on the cocking handle slide plus a few others it was a good reliable work-horse. I just left my gas regulator fully closed, max gas and it just banged away constantly and reliably - like my first girlfriend.

    At the end of their life there were some pretty-well worn out ones floating around that were really beyond salvation




    Added later....... I thought a few more would add a 'thanks', if only to smile about the banging away reliably like my old girlfriend comment. Oh well......
