Just got back in from shoveling snow, and it is raining so hard now, my jacket got soaked through and my shirt is sopping wet. For those that don't understand, sometimes snow turns to rain and then when it re-freezes, you have troubles.
While my stuff is drying I browsed some sections here and this one seems dead.

So:

Here's my Lee-Enfield No. 4 MK1* chambered in British .303. Produced by Savage arms for WWII under the Lend-Lease program but never saw action. My grandfather bought it out of a magazine in the 50's brand new for $9 for a hunting trip with cousins. Prior to the hunting trip he cut the wood down to save weight, however he never was able to finish the wood work - or ever make it to the hunting trip due to dying from PKD, which I've gotten from him as well. It's a numbers matching gun and has less than 150 rounds ever shot through it. I put the synthetic stock on it about 20 years ago but still have what's left of the original stock. Fun gun to shoot!! I also included a picture of a virgin Lee-Enfield.

Synth stock or not, the lend-lease examples are finally getting real recognition as collector pieces. Nice rifle!

I love the old ads that have these things at low prices. Well, not that low really for the times, but not as dear as they are today!

Here's some ads from '62

Wow Thanks Chris! I've never seen those ads before, I'm saving them to my personal collection. I love the "very good condition - $3 more"! Speaking of collections, I love your assortment of firearms, thanks for sharing! I'd trade my Kimber 1911 if I could get my hands on my grandfather's service 1911 he had. I'm not sure how he ended up keeping it after the war, maybe that was common back then, I just remember handling it as a child, it's where abouts are unknown to me now. Thanks for breathing life back into this thread!
