Hi ,I am a bit of an enfield fan having  collected a few. Listed below
#1mk3*
#4mk1*
#8 .22
#5
Mlm (enfield barrel fitted ) 
Churchill sporting rifle 
And Im just buying a #2mk4 .22 trainer ( marked .22 pat14  on wrist)
The #1mk3* was a rifle my father bought around 1960  for what is now a pittance  7£. He did not a bad job of "sportserising" it considering  his practical skills ended  at sticking things together with sellotape or paper clips ( he was a lawyer ). I have recently re-wooded this rifle and replaced missing bits via ebay .
I live in Thornbury  ,right at the bottom of the south island NZ.
Also into motorbikes and fishing .

Me Tool,
Agreed 100% - except I would not wish to be young again for anything as I barely survived this first time🦊
Cheers!

This.
Regrettably due to scammers there is a minimum post count for a few functions, but it does keep the place livable without multiple blockers on the user end.
IIRC it's 30 posts?
