Aloha George,

Your collection of C&R rifles are outstanding and evidently you have taken some time and care in getting these rifles to look the way they do! That is really job well done, Sir!!!

I know little about the Enfield or the '03 rifles... maybe if you could do a short intro on these rifles, I would really appreciate it...

Thank you... and Aloha!

Tom O.

Sure wish my Enfields looked as nice as yours.



And out of curiosity can I ask what part of Hawaii? Went to high school at Waimea High on Kauai a long time ago.

TLynn,

Those two Enfields looks great! Is it a No1 Mk3* and a No4 Mk1*?

You know your Enfields - that's exactly what they are. My other two haven't gotten around to taking pictures of (my LongBranch is sporterized - but it's also my very first rifle).

Love the .303's!

All the rifles here on this thread shoot British .303 Six. They are Efields. The gentleman who posted his LongBranch has a beautiful Canadian example of the British rifle - they are great shooters. If I recall right the P14 (American Enfield) also shoots .303.

03's and 03A3's shoot 30-06 (along with the P17 - American version of the British .303).

Fun rifles all (and I'm still on the hunt for a P17 which I will find eventually).

oops, I almost forgot my manners.

Thank you Hawk for pointing that out - I'm not used to boards where you can post as a Guest - so that's been fixed.

Six - thanks for shrinking the pics for me - I'm still learning. Not sure about putting my name on them - but I like what you did. Do you give lessons as well?

My favorite uncle shoot more deer with his old 303 than I'll ever see in a lifetime. He was'nt a collector, just a darn good woodsman & hunter on a budget. He filled his deer tag as well as his Mother's,wife's & 2 daughters' tags every year. In North Maine, you fill your deer tag & pick potatos or starve in the winter. Maybe they have more work up there now than 20 years ago, but filling your tag is still top priority.
Fine looking rifles, thanks for the memories they brought back.

The .303 can do what a .30-06 and .308 will. Nice round for hunting (deer or Heinkels) and the action on the 4 Mk1 is about as smooth and fast on any bolt rifle you'll find.
