    Second down in the Smith Brothers' family photo. The Webley MkVI has a shaved cylinder, so I load .45 Auto Rims down to .455 pressures.

    One of my shooting buddies has one, and really likes it.

    The Canadian Rangers are still issued the Enfield SMLE, although they are phasing them out .
    A number of smaller countries still issue the SMLE. Mosin Nagants are still used in the sniper rifle role by several countries.

    I think the TT-33 belongs here also, first devloped in 1930 and used continuously by the Soviet bloc until the 1960's. It was made in 8 different countries and is still used today in Vietnam, North Korea and in some parts of China. It is still made today in a couple of countries like China and Yugoslavia. Not bad for an 87 year old Russian designed weapon.

    DC-3? Been a viable aircraft for about 2/3 of the time there's been aircraft, and still is.
