    Impressive, especially when considering the Mail Bag.

    Nice to be here, thanks !
    Yes thatīs a squeeze cocker with a big tank of 13 shots. While not quite fitting in the Golden Era, still my favourite.
    For style I got a Luger and a M1911 to follow soon (no collection is complete without a M1911).

    I use it as a perfect fitting dust cover for my Dillon, and it adds that certain Royal touch to reloading !

    Considering the flavor of your collection, here's an 1897 Metford Mk 1 out of Afghanistan - note the Himilayan beaver-gnawed forearm and tasteful native sling. The last 8" of the bore is somewheres around .40 caliber.



    Unit disc plugged and no other markings, so impossible to tell what unit lost it.

    Such rifles can tell stories, nice !
    It doesnīt even look bad for the mentioned circumstances.
    And yes, Iīm into British arms. I recently aquired a No.5 jungle carbine (for the gap between the No.4 and the P-14), so my British rifle collection is complete now.
    Maybe Iīll go for the muzzleloaders now, letīs see.

    A work in progress : an ostrich skin shoulder holster for the S&W #3 actually fits a detachable mag Broomhandle snugly, and disappears under a sport jacket.

    Still needs a retention strap and I think I'm going to repurpose the .44 loops on the left side to retaining straps for a brown leather mag pouch (taken off a Makarov holster ages ago), which will hold one (1) spare stripper clip of 9mm.
