    Very nice collection indeed. I used to have a deac 1922 Lithgow No.1 Mk3. but its since moved on. I do have a deac 1917 BSA No1 Mk3 though. Not an allied weapon collector but I go love the LE.

    I agree, those racks are great. How about some info on them. Are they home made from plexoglass? Did you buy them from a dealer? Need some data!

    I got them on eBay a year or so ago, made of glass look Perspex. They came in from the UK. Will have aloof through my links and see if I can find a name.
