    What kind do you have? And this is the FIRST time I made a poll where you can vote MORE than once, so if you have others, count them ALL....

    Mine are of course, the Ishapore 1964 No.1 MKIII SMLE 2A .308 and my eagerly anticipated 1944 No.4 MKI* Long Branch.....although I ONCE had a nice BSA 1916 SMLE MkIII*....


    (And you know, I FINALLY figured out why SOME selections are in ITALICS....:p ) I KNOW, I KNOW, DUH! I'm not SLOW, just POLISH!

    I have the Isaphore No. 1 MKIII SMLE in .308. I need to try out some mil-surplus ammo since have only used reduced loads of SR 4759 and 180 gr cast bullets. With this load it seems that the mimumum sight setting is about 250 yds. I sure like this rifle and it is sure fun at long range plinking.

    One No4 Mk2 -- Fazakerly (not functioning)
    One No4 Mk1 -- BSA Shirley
    Both all matching with micrometer sights
  5. Mine was made by Savage here in the U.S. so it doesn't stop working at 4:00 in the afternoon each day for tea time. :D ;)

    Let's see if my memory is any good. I have 2? Ishapores; one .303 and one .308. I have several older Lake Enfield? pieces. I have the Savage, Lithgow and Long Branch. I bought the darned things for about $50 each and determined that sitting on them was the best thing to do. Only let one go; sold my brother a T-model with scope for cheap. I don't think I have owned a sniper rifle that he doesn't own.

    You know, I should be getting my Long Branch tomorrow or Tuesday, if it LOOKS good as a sporter, maybe I just LEAVE it that way??? I kinda like the looks of yours, too, Southern....


    And get ANOTHER to convert back? Hhhmmmm....

    Maybe I convert it to STOCK for DISPLAY, and save the sporter stock to convert BACK for hunting, and have a Polish-Canadian "Convertible....":p

    Mine came in this excellent condition. I guess I got lucky. Here I am a few hours ago in sunny Florida shooting my Enfield...

    Ah yes, but I see your PRIMARY piece on the table, right???:cool: ;) :p :D :D :D


    Is that a 91/30 or an M38? I'm thinking it must be a short Mosin, because it looks like your scope may have gotten knocked over with the muzzle blast...;)

    You are good! Yes that is a Mosin M38; I have two. OK the other is a Ruger 10/22 I use when my shoulder gets sore! Also took my Yugo Muuser today. Great day for shooting, you Yankees come on down!
  15. Don't encourage them there Yankees to visit too much, Library, unless they have lots of money, spend it, and then leave. :D ;)
