Default What is this and do I need to buy it?

Can anyone tell me what this is and if it is worth buying?

Some variant of the M-H but can't tell from the pictures.

Would NOT buy as a shooter. MAY be a .303.

Yes indeed, certainly a MH Variant but the pics dont tell the story very well. Ive got my Dads MH Elephant Gun as we always called it. She's a wallhanger for sure even in great condition that she's in after all these years. Ive never fired it, I like my shoulder too much!

Zulu, dint that have another famous not to be fired today weapon in it? Hmmm, let me think...
