Very nice. Is that one of the ones Val Forgett brought in or did you have to put everything together to get a complete kit?

Wow I am very impressed. I would love to get one of those as well. I would rather have a number 4T though. Either would be good though.
There is a company in Austrilia that is making new SMLE rifles in 7.62 NATO. I would love to get one of those. While not as historicly interisting it would make a great shooting rifle like the one you have.
Use that search engine Penguin.

That one's a looker too MJ. (I find functional military hardware as attractive as anything jeweled-up for show).
It's not easy to fill the chest. Slings can go for upwards of $250 and magazines $150 +. Spoetting scopes in Ex condition $800. IWS bracket, originals, will tip $500. So when you go shopping bring bank.

I don't belive so. I could be wrong though.
Maybe 20 years.
Even my daily ride is old.
