    .303 Browning Barrel.

    I found this laying on the surface,If this was underground it would have faired a little better,But still a nice addition.

    Very nice!
    Have you cleaned some rust off of the end of the barrel or was it found like that?

    It was next to a few steel rods,So nearly missed it until I double checked the pile.
