Cheers guys... Safarigent and Baljit had a hand to play in tricking out the shotgun ... We shared a good laugh thanks to safarigent. @TC dada it is a laserlyte laser site for J frames. The ML is a Lee Enfield smooth bore Triband musket belonged to my great grand dad still shoots true and [email protected] SS the handguns are broom handle C96 and S&W J frame snubby.
The Get together was celebrating Baljit's India visit giving us company with Dr.Prashant along with other usual suspects from NAGRI and IFG. @Baljit yes you were very generous Sir to grace us with your company and bring gifts for IFG members. @ Pran the Fairbairn Sykes is a neat knife and my favourite , nostalgia for a lot of us (commando comics) who grew up in the 80's. @ XL sure will post a close up with the stock and 100 plus year old leather holster /sheath for the stock soon.

TC da it is indeed priceless as a family heirloom . My father especially has a soft corner for this smokestick for this was what he was allowed his hands on as a teenager being the youngest in his family.

Yes sir.. Those were the days when teenagers bagging partridges with MLs or .22s didn't raise eyebrows and unsettle people. In my childhood growing up in a small cantonment town ,me running around as a 7-8 yr old with an air rile and air pistol also didn't bother people. I can't imagine what hell may break loose if my 6 month old moves around the neighbourhood shooting squirrels, pigeons and crows by the time he turns 8-9.

No "Lee" in that one, Captain. Just an Enfield. Had one of the rifles, my first "big bore", used it for both ball and shot, and wish I still had it. Nice collection! Cheers.
