Here’s the latest addition to the gun safe. I’m sucker for British militaria, and this rifle is in superb shape — a 1929 SMLE Short Magazine #1 Mk 3 in .303 British. The forestock is not standard, nor is the nice golden finish. It’s clean as a whistle, the barreling is in superb shape. It’s also a lovely piece of history.

Springfields and Mosin-Nagants be damned!


Can’t wait to get it out to the range.
