Finally got around to taking the images of my .303 Martini-Enfield Carbine I posted about last week.

Thanks for your answers to my questions.

This one has a slightly heavy but crisp trigger as well.

Here are a few pics of a friend's Citadel. Note the "C" was stamped backwards. Neat rifles with interesting history.

You see the same type of errors on the Citadel firearms as you see on the Khyber Pass fakes and for the same reason. While English was the language of government in Egypt at the time, it wasn't the language (or alphabet for that matter) of the workers. So not knowing what a "C" was supposed to look like, it got applied incorrectly. From the limited number of Citadel firearms I've seen mistakes are fairly common. But of course unlike the Khyber fakes, these are real and very collectible firearms.
