Was out at Bisley yesterday and got to shoot various rifles. I've seen the SMLE in action quite a few times before and I must say I really liked shooting it. That round is a real manstopper and the rifle is surprisingly accurate...i'm thinking of getting one once I have my FAC. Any tips on where to look for refurbed SMLE's in the UK?

Fenland rural supplies normally have a good stock of Smle's. Check out gun mart for their ad or google it!

I know someone with a #4 and a #5 jungle carbine for sale if you're interested.

(he even frequents this board from time to time)
IM me if you're interested.

We were on Century, somewhere in the 90's in the morning, and on 1-6 in the afternoon.

In future, We'll all have to post when we're off to Bisley

Good idea...I'll definitely walk over and say hello if our club is out shooting on that day/or if I'm there for some reason. (Marylebone R & PC - Dukka Hut)

Yes that's a good idea, Would like to come down and meet some of the Arfcommers!!
Will def take a day off and travel down as long as the next one is not between 6-13th may.
Is access fairly easy to Bisley camp? Is there an entrance fee?
