    I only saw one Enfield for sale at the weekend gun show in Tucson.  It was a No 4  listed as “unfired” at $900.  I kept walking.  It seems Enfields and Ishspores have disappeared from local gun shows.

    No.4 mk 2 rifles are going for 1400, mummy wrapped examples are topping 2k. It's nuts. I thought about letting my enfields go but I know I'll never find another one at a decent price.

    Now all you need a De Lisle carbine and a Webly revolver.
    Bullets are the only things that do their job only after they're fired.

    How do you like that Martini? Those seem totally BA. I held a martini cadet rifle a few weeks ago and I absolutely fell in love. I've been trying to find one chambered in 357 mag but for the life of me I cannot find one anywhere.

    I got to shoot 20 rounds of 1947 vintage Kynoch .577-.450 ammo when I first bought it. :thumbup  They all had a 1 second delay on firing.:thumbdown

    Now I have a S/S chamber adapter and I shoot .45 Colt in it. Its like a Gallery gun. ;-D Shoots a little high at 25yards. Front sight is well worn.

    Awesome collection. Always wanted a Jungle Carbine. It’s on my list!
