Hi, I'm new to the forum and thought I'd kick things off by sharing my newest acquisition.

I rolled the dice on a Royal Tiger Imports Ethiopian Lee-Metford. I ended up with a Civilian Lee Speed in a Lee-Metford mrk2 configuration. Over all I'm happy with the rifle. The stock looks way better than many other Enfield Style rifles that have come out of Ethiopia. Zero bluing left, but that is to be expected. I slugged the barrel and was pleasantly surprised it was .3115. Plenty of meat left on the bone with this rifle.

Only missing the rear sling swivel and the dust cover. I found a replacement sling swivel fairly fast. I already know the dust cover is going to a long road.
