I think I remember now... you had a French baker make them up for you according to your instructions. Looks like a hamburger bun.

Glad the rifle worked out too.

Where I come from that is known as 'Mucky fat'
Used to be available on a Sunday morning in the local pub, spread on bread with sliced raw onions in vinegar and salt to sprinkle on it. :razz: :razz: :razz: :razz:

Looks like at least a few of the serial numbers match. Don't see any pitting in the metal shown. That's a good sign of previous storage history. Now all you got to do is put it back together again... :bigsmile:

I wish Walt!
My wife fell and broke her right wrist last Saturday so is hor de combat at the moment and I have just developed a thrombosis in my left leg ( AGAIN :evil: :evil: ) so range time is at the bottom of the list :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:

What we Yorkshire folk call Mucky Fat.
It was always spread on bread and offered free on the bar at the local pub on Sunday morning with a salt pot and fresh sliced onions in malt vinegar.

Ever think that maybe all that cooked fat spread on bread may be why you have the thrombosis problem? :bigsmile:

No way............
a) I can't get it here in France. :oops: :cry:
b) My specialist said it was down to the excessive heat and something in my blood genes :shock: :roll:
c) We Northerners are pre-programmed at birth to eat such gourmet foods :razz:

Proper Range Time yesterday.
Started at 50 mtrs with checking the Zero. Minimum sight set is 200 yds.

FIRST 10.jpg


First 10. POA Bull. ( I started patching up before I took the photo )

Was happy with that and so moved to 100 mtrs - same point of aim.

SECOND 15.jpg


12 hits out of 15. POA still the bull. Difficult to see a good sight pattern what with my glasses and a heat haze over the barrel.

THIRD 10.jpg


Last 10 rounds, POA top of the target. Still difficult to make a clear sight pattern but very pleased with the afternoon. Need more ammunition now and we will try 200 mtrs :roll: :lol:
