    A stupidly hot range session...

    Hi all,

    I (rather stupidly) thought I would head off for a relaxing couple of hours shooting this afternoon... Hot as hell quite frankly, I thought it was odd that I am was the only one ... Well mad dogs and Englishman and all of that!

    34c in the shade according to my phone, the rifle got too hot to handle and the sweat stung my eyes ... I just gave up in the end, not much fun, but the Tippmann Arms AR ran beautifully reliably as ever, only the operators sweat in the eyes ruining the groups!

    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.

    I've had those days too. Fortunately not in the last few years...at least you were out there and could go home. Not like you had to hooch up in the edge of the treeline for some days...

    Telling me Jim, I retreated back to my air conditioned LandRover, bounced back across the fields in a cloud of dust with a frosted glass (or three) of beer firmly in my sights....

    22 rim rifle conversion kit

    I like to shoot mine inside at around 15 or 20 feet, kind of private.

    My 1 in 12 early barrel twist is great with the standard vel CC1 22 rim fire,
    saved this target from 2020

    also like the early CAR15 stock

    Here in Texas we are hoping to have a cool front push in and drop the Temp to a nice 34c / 93f from the 40c / 104f we have had for about 3 weeks now .

    We've actually had 40c here a few times this summer, it's just not funny, especially as virtually no one has Aircon!

    I'm more than done with summer this year, roll on the Autumn!

    sub caliber adopters

    If you could find a sub caliber adopter in 22 WMR for your 5,56mm chamber, you could try it out at different ranges. The 22 WMR is expensive and not alot of bullet choices but could be tested.

    The normal semi auto 22 rim fire kit is alright and without a need for special rim fire, only the AR-15 match rifles with dedicated 22 match barrels will need testing of different match brands

    photo shows 22 rf with 5,56 adopter, 32 acp (also 32 S&W) for 303 adopter and 32 ACP, 32 S&W short & long for 30-06 adopter

    last photos show the CAR 15 stock that I restored and installed on a Colt SP1 semi auto from 1974
