    Just remembered an article on shortened LE rifles used by Chinese bicycle messengers. They took old beat up SMLE rifles, cut the barrel back to about 12-14 inches, then for luck soldered a half of a Chinese coin to the muzzle end for a crude front...

    Reminds me of a 60's experiment by the U S Army. They converted some bolt action rifles to fire a .45 cartridge based on a shortened .458 Magnum case. They used .45/70 500 grain full metal jacket bullets (possibly old stock from an arsenal?) at...

    I've found that actions with the bolt handle in front of the bridge are faster to manipulate for the first round when bringing the rifle up from waist level to the shoulder. Slower when cycling the action while shouldered.

    Afghanistan and some neighboring states bought commercially manufactured BSA SMLE rifles with markings and rear sight range numerals in their native language. If its an old Afghan contract SMLE even in relic condition it might have collector...

    Rifles that have had many rounds of Cupro nickel jacketed bullets fire through them can end up with a thick deposit of that metal in the grooves. I once owned a Krag carbine I picked up for $50 bucks (that was many years ago) in good condition other...

    Spanish were dug in like ticks on the high ground with every advantage. No one took positions like that by rifle fire alone. IIRC the Spanish also had a number of Maxim Guns as well as Mausers. Would you consider the Winchester .44 Caliber lever...
