I'm more bummed about you missing the 1917, but we've been doing that for years now. The Enfield was in a little nicer condition than mine, and a good deal, but I'm not worried about it. I would have bought it to have a spare, but it's not like it would have filled that one last hole in my collection.

We've got Jarettesville and Lebanon coming up...Who know's what we'll find

Well here it is, nothing special but I think highly functional. Arsenal 26 SN 180007XX, no clue of build date. Slide and trigger guard do NOT match receiver. Barrel to receiver is different than my other 10 shot jobber. I think this one may be pinned and the other threaded. This one perfectly round where as the other (civilian model) has a flat on top of it.

That is a new style for forward grip. It is not a vertical grip so as not to be "scary", but rather it is diagonal. It has the added benefit of storing some amount of ammunition in it as well. To use it, you remove the "grip" slide the top round out and load it into the chamber. Then you replace the grip and fire the round. Then repeat as needed.

Cool. You should make a video of how it works and post it on Yt. Antifa would love it.

Unfortunately, the only rifle I have right now is an AR-15 and the "forward grip" isn't as long or diagonal.

Stripes are custom black on black at a 22 degree angle. I wanted something no one else had.
