Hi folks,

I'm Nick, life long lover of these old rifles!

Own a couple, one a 1917 SMLE made by BSA that resides in Australia for when I'm there, and back home in the UK I have a Lithgow SMLE which is fitted with a Lithgow heavy barrel. She's 99 years old and grouped 3 shots under a £1 coin recently.

Looking forward to having a peak around the forum later on.

Catch you later!

No I'm Dragunov on the SD, I got shanghied into this job a few years ago to keep these reprobates in order. The name Rottie was given to me by a canadian member following a bust up on here and me booting and banning an idiot.Whatever you do don't call charger clips "stripper clips" our resident Gnome Hoadie has a funny turn and has to spend a couple of days in a straight jacket on medication.

Haha! Yes I can dig that!

I'm the same when people call rifles 'Guns'....

Stripper clips is definitely what they called the 5.56 ones back in my youth, so perhaps that's where it's come from?

Sounds like you and Hoadie will get along fine, he regards strppers as something to entertain dirty old men and he goes funny if you call them guns not rifles.

Nothing wrong with a good stripper. Everyone should have his favorite ones. Mine are made in Canada.
Always looking for military manuals, Dodge M37 items,books on Berlin Germany, old atlases ( before 1946) , military maps of Scotland. English and Canadian gun parts.

They probably wouldn't recognise it now, I was over there last year for an old friends funeral and didn't recognise the place. Massive casino buildings in the town center and the road system was wicked. I nearly got lost making my way home.
