Diego,

Very nice photo and nice collection you have going there. You're way ahead of me...

I had only two Enfields for twenty years and digital photography was unknown when I got the first! Good job.

well, I might be ahead of you like you say, but lets just say I am very envious of that blonde Long Branch you've got, you have no idea!

You're telling me! Picked up the bottom rifle on my 18th birthday, and she just started inviting girls over, left and right! I'm not complaining though ;)

Yes, they're very social. Grin.

Thanks for the kind words on the blonde Long Branch. I really dig that one, too. I acquired it from a Doctor on another board who was upgrading. Hate to see what he upgraded to...might turn me permanently green with envy. I like it very much as it has the cool grooved handguard, matching numbers and a perfecto bore. When I first got it and posted about it here there was some discussion about what kind of wood it had. Someone said it might be Canadian maple. I dunno, but she sure is purty.

Now I'm on the prowl for an earlier Lithgow, something 1940 or earlier in fact, that could've been used by the Aussies at Tobruk in '41 when Tobruk was first besieged by Rommel. I'm reading a book about the desert war and the German Afrika Korps vet who wrote it makes several references to the sharpshooting Australians and their deadly rifles. Always something new to look out for...
