I can only think of 3 more (1, 1B, and 55?). What are the other two? I am trying to complete a set myself, and have all the above except the S/S Target Rifle, and the "other two".
The 1885 12g (only 35 made) and the new .22.

Son knows about the 12g from one of the Infamous HT Club get togethers. Some thieving so and so took a liking to mine.

Yes, I can fully understand the angst within the collection when a new member is introduced.

You should have heard the riot when the last couple went into the safe. The LSAs and BSAs jacked up over the new Pommy rifle. I thought they'd have got along, but no, if you aren't suitably attired with full length timber you are not welcome. Cocktail attire on the sporters, whilst less than appropriate, is endured if they are elegant and their barrels are slender.

The Savage and Longbranch rifles started off well until they discovered the WFM4 was built in OZ and then that relationship quickly turned sour.

My first proper rifle was a 1A and is still the king, so therefore the subsequent additions lack rank when they are inducted.

Camera what camera. I dont remember buying a camera, when did Lithgow make cameras what calibre are they. Buggar something else to look for.:(
I'm pretty sure there were camera tripods and other bits along with the shearing handpieces and golf clubs in the front room at the museum.

Edit to add; it was projectors for those new fangled talking movies that they made. I don't reckon they'll gain any degree of popularity. A bit the same as those record playing machines that are alongside them.
