A Short Look at Popular “Hardware for the Home”
By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor
Our first video looks at the M 14 in a popular configuration for basement/rec-room plinking, providing you have a large enough home. Videos available in 1080P HD.
The second video is of a recent purchase, a 1918 Enfield SMLE. The rifle itself is 90% or better. The stock is a Brit import, refitted. This is a rare opportunity to get a look at a weapon this age in “issue” condition. My recent Yugo Mauser is almost as good though is also 39 years newer.
The Enfield, mechanically, is clearly superior to the Mauser. These were underrated weapons.
I may do a repeat on this with better light.
