    That is a really nice sporter, and one with all the right stuff. The Pacific (and its cpies) peep sight is easy to lose in the field unless you loctite the big screw down. Don't ask me how I know this. There are better aperature sights, including the Williams FP-krag which may still be available new, also sometimes you can find an older Redfield for the Kragicon - both sights heve better windage and elevation adjustments than the Pacific.

    Unique is great powder. It just takes a little and it lights up easily even in a large cartridge. It is very predictable.

    Good luck!

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping.

    Nice sporter Kyle. This is mine. I’ve been using 10.0 gr V-V Tin Star and a 193 gr gc bullet in my Krags and ‘03s. My first Kragicon was a faux carbine [I shouldn’t have bought] that I rebuilt as a Scout rifle with a Kraghaus scope mount and a Nikon IER scope. Cut and faced the already cut bbl to 19 inches. Added the cheek pad and ammo carrier. The cheek pad puts my eye right behind the scope every time.
