    And I remember the scene. I believe when they are leaving with Han for the first time, a storm trooper runs in with a freaky looking Lewis gun.. Never thought anything about that until you mentioned it Dave. Usually id be booing like crazy for tearing these guns up. But star wars gets a pass!

    My 1906 SMLE Mk1*** was an EY gun before it was relegated to DP. So it might have been used as a grenade launcher at some time.

    Mine was an Ishapore as well. Will have to try it with tennis balls. In all my years of attending gun shows mine was the only one I have seen for sale.

    There aren't too many around from my experience. The one I bought was the first one I've ever seen in person.

    bumping my old thread in an effort to identify the rounds used to fire these mills grenades. It is my understanding there were many different rounds. Somebody own some of these rounds for a visual id?

    I first learned to shoot with a No4 as a 13yr old Army Cadet and we always just knew these rounds as "Ballistite cartridges" and were taught that they were in someway different to standard blanks. We were never told how they differed and I don't recall ever actually seeing them.

    However, this link may help;
