Re: Lets see those .303's
i think we had about 15 iterations , some worked well , some complete disasters with noel farthington losing a eye on a demonstration ( he was the chief designer there in the 50's )
technology changed the ammo changed and folks started going the path of the FN or AK so they never went anywhere really
a design path that became a dead end ..
i have 3 of them but would not ever try to fire them , one already shows stress fractures in the chamber ( that is a doland a early convertion that failed)
.303 was not a good designed round for a semi or auto rifle , the .308 rimless was a much better fit
