Well ... I was about to wade in and then, no ... why ruin a lovely evening at home in front of the fire.
A big thanks to some cool heads prevailing on the Lee Enfield, some of the negative statements previously made are near surreal. If I thought the argument was not already in good hands I wouldn't be able to help my self. I had English and Australian family carry Lee Enfields into the Boer war, WW1 and WW2 - they knew how good the LE's and Metfords were.
