    We have met the enemy and have learned nothing more about him. I have, however, learned some things about myself. There are things men can do to one another that are sobering to the soul.

    Very nice!
    I like these a lot even though they seem to kick like a mule. Your numbers are not that far off of my own example.
    I just recently picked up a couple of spare magazines for mine.

    This is my favorite scout type rifle. plus it just looks badass. It gets attention.
    Repro Bayos are available and finish the look. I am looking for an original.

    I reload my brass for this. full factory loads do kick. If you try to fire all tend rounds as fast as possible can be quite the brutal experience.

    Its just a really fun gun.
    What would you know about victory? I killed a she-wolf in her den, armed with only a knife. I escaped the Caughnawaga Indians who sought to burn me alive. And, I was the sole survivor of a shipwreck at the Battle of Havana. So you'll excuse me if I choose not to follow your advice." ―Israel Putnam speaking to a Continental Army officer at the Battle of Bunker Hill.

    Im going to find out for sure. I'll hit the range sometime this week. Nice dark grooves in the barrel just begging to be fired.

    A nice Fazakerley made piece (I think most of these were from ROF Fazakerley and a lesser number from BSA in Shirley, Birmingham). The rubber butt piece was supposed to lessen the recoil force to the shooter but most people seem to think it doesn't.

    I learned to shoot with a range of Enfields when I was just 14 yrs and I still love them all !!

    Let us know how yours performs on the range.

    Regards
