    New SMLE TAC

    Saw this sinister new rifle while watching Homeland last night...

    I wonder when they'll bring out a chassis for this puppy to help with tactical modifications...

    Would look 'right' with a period Sten Gun tubular stock. But it does look mean.

    Did the Homeland episode feature some fast bolt work? Last time I saw anything like that with SMLEs in a TV series, was the final installment of "When the Boat Comes In", which brings us back to the late 70s...

    But that rifle, ... the sort of thing only a mother could love.

    What a peculiar looking rifle. Appears to feature a R4 rifle stock.

    That's what I thought, the whole rifle looks banana droopy. Must be from the high rate of fire mag dumps it's capable of.

    Season five I think. The wife's been getting whole seasons and we've been chewing through them pretty quick so I'm unsure what episode. It's the one where they're based in Pakistan the whole time.
