The end of the road

At the end of every road comes… the end of the road. For 100 years, to the year, Lee Enfield #2438 Mk 1 III was in better than serviceable condition. Yet, I am a reloader who likes to economize on things like brass. Blown out shoulders can be fixed, old guns can be rebuilt.

The Old Lady needed better care than I could give her. I broke down and sold my very first rifle to a collector who rebuilds Enfields to their former glory. A part of me is sad to see her go, but having gone I am glad for her. Then I saw the pictures…old lady

This fellow has done well by my old Enfield. Thank you sir.
