Until last April, MNs seemed like the best milsurp rifles, but it must be the cheap surplus ammo prices which keep them in the limelight.
Actually, the '69 on my avatar is identical in specs to my '69 Chevelle SS, just a different color.

Supergun: "Roger that".

Pardon me if this is a nosy question, but do owners of your type/quality of LE often ask only about $250 for those at gun shows, where there were a few other LEs competing for limited buyers etc?

Or did you trade something for it, maybe trade plus some cash? My first gun show was August '08, which means being a very late-starter.
Regret not having discovered LEs (especially with the vanishing ammo) much sooner, despite the cheap prices for MNs and their surplus ammo. I just traded two sealed cans with 740 rds. of Bulgarian x54R + cash for 750 rds. of POF in the original black sealed can. One ftf in the first 31 rounds, only two very slight 'click-bangs'. "Insurgent bricks" don't care.

Really, really wish that I had discovered LEs (especially with the vanishing ammo) much sooner, despite the cheap prices for MNs and their surplus ammo.

Personally, I found a vendor selling it for $275 and I got him down to $260 plus a sling and case.

I have a No.4 Mk1 Fazakerley, all matching numbers, in excellent condition, there are pics of it all over here, but my phone won't let me post any right now

I'm working a trade for a No5 Jungle carbine.

these things are almost as addictive as my Mosins.
The only reason that they arent more addictive is the prohibitive costs of ammunition.

I love my Long Lee Metford. It keyholes with factory ammo. A gentleman from the Cast Boolits forum was extremely nice in sending me some. 316 bullets but I'm yet to load them. With two small children it's a challenge to get out to the rifle range. I hope to find a break sometime soon, though.

I have a beautifully worn '44 Fazakerly, the magazine has a shlash through the original numbers and has 4 (or 5 I can't remeber) stars on the magazine. But it's a beauty, the only bad thing is that I don't have a screwdriver long enough to take off the buttstock. And there's service grease in every crack and crevice.
