    Is it wise to trust those cup hooks in the ceiling?

    Wrecker-yours is the ME Artillery Carbine, converted from the MH Rifle MkIII-the exact configuration will be marked on the left hand side of the action with the original markings on the right hand side-fine old historic firearms (I have an ME Rifle Mk I, still live but I wouldn't trust it now given its age and cordite ammo).

    Harry,thanks for your concern but they are heavy duty steel screw eyes that have been up there a goodly while,theres nothing to say the weight of jeep parts in the attic above might bring em down though.

    Lithgow i will get the martini off the ceiling tomorrow and look at the markings,not sure about this new fangled nude photography but i will give it a try.

    Heres pics of gun,theres no stampings on right side of gun,i was under impression it was a mk1 .303 made for the job not a rework of a henry,it would be nice to know what butt disc and bayonet markings were if anyone knows.

    'AC I'= Artilllery Carbine Mk1. Never heard of one being made new-plenty of older rifles available for conversion. It may be a good idea to start a new thread on the carbine as the original tag is now misleading on this subject.
