Sitting chez my US exporter currently
I'll tell the Aussies you called Straya a third world Sh1thole....Is that yet another ropey AR18 locally manufactured in some third world sh1thole? You could have bought a FAL at least...
Totally agree. I didn’t get my point across very well in my post - I think we will be in lock down til April so they won’t be able to open.Personally I doubt it because that National Shooting Centre will be desperate to make more money at Bisley. I reckon they'll open as soon as it is defined as legal to be open.
I've seen pics of Charnwoods with the Sterling mag, like this one which I presume is just a barrel, Sterling mag and Enfield or Sterling extractor:Charnwoods just relied on the Enfield mag to do the ejecting.
They are very hit and miss; I'm not sure they check-milled the receivers, or just picked rifles that the mags seemed to fit straight off.
It didn't help matters when Charnwood went on to make the repro Enfield mags which, although to the eye dimensionally correct, never seem to work well in any rifle.
So mine's either done by Sterling without the receiver being engraved (were they even all engraved?), or by a gunsmith who went the whole hog and did all the bells and whistles. Deffo not a Charnwood though from what I've seen of them (CO serial number, not all the bells and whistles).
