I'd like one, that's for sure but prototypes are in the museum so....pictures will have to suffice.

Old Adolf didn't invade for the simple reason he'd heard about my granny and her temper. I could see her marching down to the invasion beach and battering them with the old flat iron and cast iron skillet. Half a dozen like her would have taken Berlin in a week Big smile.

Have seen that rifle before, Think it was in Skennerton's "The British Service Lee"
Bet it kicked with that little narrow steel butt-stock!  Nasty!

Part of the contract states: "& must be as ugly as can be made".
Just look @ military trucks...or the F-4 Phantom - that was so ugly it was beautiful!!(Kinda like going so far west-u come up t'other side! )
