Yep that'll do it man them enfield are very nice, even the original. You have some to be proud of right there for sure. How much would and original like that go for? And do you shoot that thing? And last how do you fit the whole rifle in the pic. I'm no photographer, but I can't do it. That or I just don't know how to operate my Nikon L110 camera which really isn't the greatest.

Very nice brace of weapons Hawg. I hope some day I run into someone with a P53. A original. Like the one pictured. I would consider shooting a real 160 year old tack driving weapon a true privilege. (Being 1/2 English I'm kind of partial when it comes to Enfields Sir_)

I gave 900 for that one about 10 years ago. I gave too much but I didn't know any better at the time. They run around that price now I believe. I have shot it, yes indeedy I have Try taking them diagonal like I did. My camera is an old Kodak Z600. It was a good one in its day but outdated now.
