yes sir i have said the same thing. what is not to like? reliable, rugged, powerful, and 10 shots. i would definitely take it over the 03 Springfield ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
This paradigm might be worthy of consideration in our times given where things are heading.

Thanks for the 2nd look!
That is surely an outstanding rescue & rebuild.

Afternoon All
Old 303s are lovely and Olskool yours is exceptional. When I was at high school I got to handle my first 303 in Cadets, they were Morris Tube 22-303 training rifles.
Last weekend I shot a Lee Metford 303 carbine that was used in the Bore War, it had all the battle scares and carved initials from various users. It had something different form a Lee Endfield there was a cleaning rod under the barrel and the bolt had an attached cover over it. The rounds that we used were 170gn jacketed and 55gn black powder (ie full case) sounded worse than when shooting it.
Regards Dik

What a lovely piece, you did well, sir!

3/4" at 75 yards = minute of angle. 3/4" at 80 is less than the coveted MOA. That's exceptional, especially with iron sights! Now you have me all excited....
