Very nice.... I like the photo, very creative compared to some who usually take a photo of their bedspread... with a few toes for good measure...

Now go shoot it. :thumbsup:

New owner here. No.1 mk3 1912 B.S.A.
The bore looks a bit flogged but I’ll find out if it shoots on Saturday, the furniture is in good used condition. Freebie from my grandad, who inherited it from my great uncle (was his rifle in ww2).

Great to have one with history and family provenance.

Have had 303's sitting in the safe for years. Then got into the wildcats, though primarily in one of my favourite calibres -.257".
Currently there's:
1900 LE No1 MkI 'Long Tom'
Eddystone P-14 303
1915 No1 MkIII representative marksman's rifle
1919 Lithgow No1 MkIII
1942 Lithgow No1 MkIII*
Maltby No4 Mk1
BSA No4 Mk2 ( which will become a representative No4T)
Lithgow No1 MkIII 303-25
Eddystone P-14 303-25

Plus there's a Lee Speed 303 action which initially was a Lithgow sporter in 303-22 Falcon, but is now a 375 Nitro Express flanged 2.5". I did have an un-issued Savage No4 MkII that was marked as a NZ Mtd Rifles item, but sold it during a moment of weakness. It was a 2-groove & in 95% or better condition.

Am looking to add a Martini Henry 303 & Ruger No1 303Br in due course to round things out.

Incidently, speaking of .311", basically 303, you could also count a M19/31Mosin Nagant & an M39 Finnish.

The milsurps are fed PPU 150gn SP or 174gn FMJ. I also reload for them with Bertram 174gn SP & Sierra SMK 174's which are primarily for the marksman & faux 4T rifles.
I have also been loading some 123gn .311" pills to trial in CSR comps. Worked bloody well too.

Can you post a pic of the whole package?
Is the stock bakelite or fibreglass?
