sorry about that

I like old stuff

This SMLE was hit by an AP round during the first World War. The round actually went down the barrel, detonated the round in the chamber, and the operator lived to tell the tale. This rifle is among several other battle damaged rifles belonging to the Warminster Arms Collection.
