Re: Bisley Armistice Shoot

I am shooting in the HARC league in the standing deliberate. I came second in division 3 last time using my Mossberg M42-B lend-lease rifle. I don't think I will be appearing in division 1 any time soon. As you say, a bit of fun and also an excuse to get the old rifles to the range.
Regards
Peter.

Re: Bisley Armistice Shoot

Joe, yes I was using an SMLE though mine is a BSA dispersal rifle made in 1942 and not of WW1 vintage. The bayonet I used is dated 1917 so that was of the correct age.

Re: Bisley Armistice Shoot

The target is designed to confuse. I shot a bit low and got 2x5, 3x4 and 5x3. The course of fire for all the matches is attached.

Bisley Armistice Shoot

I went to Bisley over the weekend to take part in the Armistice Shoot to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of The Great War. There were five matches shot and a sixth being the aggregate of the five that were shot. I ended up in 35th place out of 115 completed entries. The matches were sho...

Sword stick

When my parents got married 79 years ago, in April 1939, they took the tenancy of a 210 acre farm here in Yorkshire. I was born and grew up on that farm. It was a bit out of the way and did not get electricity until 1953. I vaguely remember going to bed by candle and oil lamps. No heating, of course...

Re: Bayonets

I missed one out. I forgot about this one hanging from a gin trap chain by a gun cabinet. I think it is for the French Gras rifle. It is dated 1877. I don't have a scabbard for this one and it was a bit rusty when I got it.

Bayonets

I have not been a collector of bayonets but these have come my way over the years so I thought I would take some photos of them. I have three of the spike bayonets for the No.4 Lee Enfield rifle. Spike bayonets for No. 4 rifle 1.jpg I have a No.7 and a No. 9 bayonet for the No.4 Lee Enfield rifle. T...

Re: Armi San Paolo Remington 1858 New Army

I have a Pietta Remington 1858 revolver. I use .451 balls in it and it shaves a ring of lead when seating the ball. I have not used it for a while but now I think I should get it out and shoot it again.
Regards
Peter.

Re: MAS 36 for me

I have one of those. The sights are a bit of a lottery for windage. Mine was quite a bit off for windage so I sent off to Numrich for a replacement rear sight (back when they would export to UK) in the hope of getting a better one and as it turned out I did get a better one. C & G Ammozone had a...
