I realized that my Argentine had a newer unmarked stock on it so it had to go, I found someone who REALLY wanted it so I'm happy. That M48 might as well have been built yesterday, I'm not sure that its ever been shot.
I also traded for a sporterized 1943 Long Branch Enfield no. 4 mk I*, the stock is cut down but they didn't cut the barrel down or do anything to the action or crown, got it for $50 (traded a scope I bought for $44.97), can't decide if I want to rebuild it or just sell it and move on. The guy also threw in a Swedish 1896 bayonet & scabbard, so I basically got the gun for free.

We owe that to ourselves and our crippled self-image as something better than a nation of panicked sheep."-HST
