    Hi chaps,

    One of the blerks from my local shooting club is seeking to offload his slightly pimped SMLE, and yes, I know the purists amongst you may be losing it at this point, but hey ho, wasn't me wot done it.

    It's got:

    A heavy floating 7.62 barrel with 1/9 twist.
    Custom Weaver Rail
    Parker Hale rail in base of stock.
    Versa-Pod Bipod with hand-stop.
    Tasco 6-24x48 Objective AO scope.

    Let me know if you'd like to make an offer.




  2. I would honestly sleep with that beast - a shame I don't have a FAC :D
  3. The scope mount looks like the Armalon one I have on my L39. And is that a No 8 butt?
  4. Gents,

    Forgive the intrusion! I'm just curious - how much would something like this go for?

    I'm still serving, and don't have a FAC but i'm thinking of taking up shooting at a civilian club in a couple of years when i'm pensioned off!

  5. How much for the magazine?

    The gennelman in question is selling the entire package er, as a package, so no EX-STAB me old mucker, there'll be no stripping this one for parts! :wink:

    I could be wrong, but I believe it's a newly crafted stock, hence the long forend and the Parker Hale accessory rail underneath.

    I'm told it's a custom scope rail, though it may very well be a 'customised' Armalon.

    Offers in the region of £500.
  7. That is a beautiful rifle!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  8. What have you done to that beautiful rifle?

    Lee Enfields should never be re-barrelled to 7.62, that alone should carry the death penalty. Then sticking a noncey optic on it should carry a 'dig him up after he's been executed and chop up his body' sentence.

    No No No No No No

    Ex stab, I'll have a shufty to se if I've got a mag

    That's not strictly speaking true though is it MDN? I give you . . . . . . . . . the L42!


    Floating 7.62 barrel, and let's face it, thanks to the oft furry sight post, the scope's a bit noncey, no?

    Funnily, it don't look much different to the one that this thread is about . . . :wink:
  10. Its not an L42!!

    Even the L42 should have stayed in .303 for patriotic reasons, nevermind logistics, ballistics etc.

    It is pretty, but its wrong wrong wrong
