    Seeking Kabul-Made Lee-Metford and other firearms help

    Greetings everyone. I'm researching material for an upcoming book dealing with the Kabul Rifle Factory, arms production, and Martini Identification. Over the years I've come across references to Mannlichers, Lee-metfords, and "seven-shot repeater" rifles also produced there, as well as various other pieces stamped with the royal ownership mark (mosque or mosque in a starburst).

    My appeal is for help - more example pictures, references, or knowledge of Kabul mannlichers - and Lee-Metfords and "seven-shot" rifles, etc. (I've got the Martinis covered already.)

    The only Mannlicher I found was at the page below. This week I located one other. The attached picture is from the Mannlicher but is likely found on Lee-Metfords and any other factory produced firearm as well with either a mosque or mosque in star. The photo is attributed to Warren Shindle.

    If you have anything of interest, please post or contact me.

    "Kabul town's a blasted place; blow the trumpet, draw the sword."

    We've discussed at least one such "long Lee" here before; done a search?
