    Rusty relic. 303 longtom

    Here'sa cool old piece. Rusty and full of borer and dry rot It's very original and complete and it would still actually fire. It was found under a house and by the looks its been there for years! Thanks to private joker here I now have a matching condition bayonet to go on the end of it

    Why do I never find these under houses?! I am a builder and spend enough time looking in those sorts of places.
    It is just not fair.

    No I will leave this one just as it is. Its just something different in its current state. I have better ones than this to use if I want anyhow.

    Ia there a year and serial number?
    Serial number on the right hand side of the receiver.....Mine is a42743 and the year is 1901.
    It was a confusion of ideas between him and one of the lions he was hunting in Kenya that had caused A. B. Spottsworth to make the obituary column. He thought the lion was dead, and the lion thought it wasn't.

    Wonder if this was stored there by a Home guardsman?
