Caveat Emptor when shopping at Classic. They have shitty practices (this is totally without a doubt the last shipment of enfields ever except for the ones they sold last month that were the last ever or the ones sitting in their warehouse). They also overestimate the quality of everything and their 'hand pick' is a joke.
I do agree that "hand pick" is rarely worth it. For me, never, but someone somewhere will argue with me on that.

I was just posting that for people to know about it.
The border between civilization and savagery is porous and patrolled by opportunists. Resist fascism. Vote like your democracy depends on it.

hand pick - i remember when i bought my vz24 long ago in a dimly-lit shopping mall, tables stacked with surplus rifles from behind the iron curtain still sopping of cosmoline. pick the first one that comes to hand off the top, turn it this way and that, nothing obviously wrong with it. yeah, good enough, this one will do.

the one on the left, is that a snider conversion? [headslap]no, dummy, that's a martini-henry single shot breechloader, their equivalent to our trapdoor. the snider had a hinged breech that opened to the side. [/headslap]
and the one in the middle is a p14, which we made here and became our model 1917 in 30-06. the huge ears on the rear sight and internal magazine give it away.

I've got a pair. A number 4 mk 1, it's a Longbranch, and a number 2 mk 1 the DAO tanker's model that was mentioned earlier.
