Look, yes a real rifle, its a Barrett .50 cal and it's England
My Nephew, having fun today.
On a military base?
Yes, but a civilian club and rifle.
A couple of older rifles from today.
Lee Enfield No 4 1944 sniper, all original and matching numbers including the scope.
Mosin Nagant 44, like new.
I'd just about die for a No.4 T.
Glad to see that you are still allowed to have some fun the UK
I bet that 50 cal goes well
Great photos - thanks
Just a few more photos.
And a couple more.
Wow great pics Charlie! I wish I was there, it looks like he had a great time!
Sweet. Very nice setups. I like the A.I. rifle.
That is the one area where you have us beat, firearms wise, suppressers.
They are very tightly controled here, in some states they are totally illegal.
There's that common sense thing that I brought up in your other thread again.
Edit: Charlie, just out of curiosity, is that scope base adjustable on the .50 BMG. And who is it made by? The micrometer looking thing sticking out the back side of the base made me take a second glance.
Charlie, your giving me a woody. Geez knock it off.
wow what a set of machinery you have there, very very nice. Now I'm drooling
We cant do this in the UK
But we can do this, me and my friends playing
Yes that's the adjuster (Steyr HS 50) , I will try and get you some details. The Barrett's scope is also adjustable, you can increase the slope of the scope. That one is a prototype made by one of my friends. I will try to get you more details soon, what I can say is, they both work, changing from 200 yards to a mile in seconds.
I'm a military vehicle buff. From time to time I'll pick up a copy of Military Machines International or one of the other Brit military vehicle mags.
It's great to see the amount of interest there is in collecting M/V's in the U.K.
We can have them here, but, there doesn't seen to have the same amount of interest.
1 thing that suck's here is the fact that that the only MOD Land Rovers that we can import into the States must be 25 years old or older. I love Rovers. I've spoke to our friend Tranter about this once in a thread, so I'm kind of repeating myself.
It is great to see y'all having a blast.
My friend owns 5 Chieftain MBT tanks, a Scorpion light tank(working gun),a few 432 APC's, 434 maintenance version of the APC, and Buccaneer jet bomber, amongst other things.
If you ever need some British Kit, Tanks, Landrovers etc, just let me know. I know someone who ships them to the states.
Great friend to have if the French ever get rambunctious.
Fat chance of that happening any time soon.
Don't worry about the scope base info. I was just curious. It was what I thought it was.
Very nice Rig.
Both are home made, the Barrett one is a bit more advanced.
