Default The Entire Collection

Figured I'd start a new threat rather than clutter up the old one. A few people asked earlier about a picture of my rifle collection - that is way too difficult, so here's 15 pictures of everything I have on hand right now.

Lee-Enfield Mk.I - 1896 Enfield, Canadian marked
Martini-Henry Mk.III - 1884 Enfield
Snider-Enfield Mk.III Cavalry Carbine - 1871 Enfield

A tribute to the greatest battle rifle ever:
Lee-Enfield No.1 Mk.III* - 1942 Ishapore
Lee-Enfield No.1 Mk.III* - 1942 Lithgow, Australian 7th Division marked
SMLE Mk.III* - 1917 SSA, Canadian marked
Lee-Enfield No.1 Mk.III - 1940 BSA, New Zealand 26th Infantry Battalion marked




Lee-Enfield No.5 Mk.I - 1945 Fazakerly
Lee-Enfield No.4 Mk.I(T) - 1944/45 Shirley
Lee-Enfield No.4 Mk.I - 1944 Shirley
Enfield P14 - 1916 Remington, Canadian marked
Ross Mk.III - 1916

Berthier M1892 - 1894 St. Etienne
Berthier M1907/15 - 1917 St. Etienne
Lebel M1886/93 - 1893 Tulle

I like how you categorized them by where there from. Very nice collection, impressive indeed.

You should try for more US WWII weaponry, like a Springfield M1903 of some type, or maybe a Johnson rifle. But that's just me.

Hope you never have an unexpected liquidation sale though. Lots of guys I know end up selling their big collections of vintage guns to pay of debt or something. So knock on hard wood.

Shame on you for putting the 1911 at the bottom of the picture!

Saving the best for last, of course.

The wood on most of those rifles look to be in pretty bad condition. Probably from old age.

They're service rifles. Even with chips and wearing, with gloss like that those stocks are in great shape.

Excuse me? The only one with wood in remotely bad condition is the Carcano. What exactly do you expect a 60-140 year old to look like?

It's just that the wood is so dark.
