Gallery Rifle definition

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Has anyone got a copy of the Bisley Bible handy? I need the complete definition of a "Gallery Rifle".

    I noticed on the range regulations that the old prohibition on downloaded rifle ammunition on the pistol ranges appears to have disappeared, and I need to check that it has not moved into the Gallery Rifle definition or somewhere else. Plus, I need to see if my Australian International Arms with downloaded ammunition now fits the definition.
  2. Right, thanks for that.

    Downloads are prohibited.

    However, going by the letter of the rules, so is .44-40 (amongst others):

    .44-40 was, of course, originally designed for use in lever action rifles.
