Anita se ouma het vandag vir my 4x groot persente gegee! Sy begin haar goed uit deel sodat daar nie n stry en baklei op D-day is nie, hartseer maar ja. Syt vir my die mooiste outydste geweer gegee, dis n .22 met 410 hael geweer, die twee lope lê langs mekaar, en hel hy is erg akuraat en hy is amper 40jaar oud! Dan het sy vir my 2x ander gegee wat ek ongelukig nie veel oor kan praat nie. En dan het sy vir my n 2de wêreld oorlog Lee-Enfield 303 ook gegee, kan nie sy datum so lekker sien nie, sal skoon maak en laat weet. Ek oorweeg om die 303 in te vat vir jag modifikasie as dit die moeite werd is. Sal fotos post sodra ons more by die huis is.

Die 303 is n baie goeie kaliber vir bosveld kondisies. Ongelukkig is baie vandie ou gewere se lope redelik uitgeskiet. Laat eers die loop uit check voordat jy te veel geld spandeer. As hy uitcheck, armtech inPotch doen twee deel kolwe vir billike pryse.

Jy praat van Chris, sy pryse is nie meer so billik nie :shock2: :shock2: hy spits hom meer toe op die oorseese mark en ons local ouens moet nou ook daai prys betaal, ek ken hom goed, groot workshop op die plaas.

Hi Trevor
I am a collector of historical firearms. My opinion is don’t touch the 303. You are talking of the 22/410 that is more than 40 years old. Well the 303 actually has more value as a historical piece. If you have to, then only do modifications that can be reversed. Too many of these fine old ladies are being butchered. The same happened with the Colt 1911 pistols. Almost all have been “improved”. Today an unmolested example fetches big money.

Unfortunately in South Africa these days few firearms mean anything for collectors. (Maybe across the border in Namibia it is different).

I sit with a Colt Delta Elite Government, and Colt Delta Elite Gold Cup that I cannot give away.

Companies like Classic Arms and Blunderbuss sat with shopping trollies full of .303's in stock standard military guise months ago. Many of them probably went to Scaw metals to be turned into roller mill balls.

The side-by-side .22 / 410 is a baby version of the 'cape gun' ..... I have an old Wesley Richards .303 / 12 br cape gun ... heavy as hell, was originally for black powder but was later "Nitro-proofed" without modification. (They probably just loaded it up a couple of times with nitro powder cartridges and fired it a few times to see if it held, and then just stamped it. :lol: )

Keep the cape gun, might not be worth so much now but until it becomes of more value you can use it for vermin. :D: ;-)

Hello Heinrich

I will take the Colts if your giving them away. :thumbup:
Sorry but I have to disagree. The better condition 303s have all found new homes at the Classic Arms Auctions I have attended. And I’ve been to many! Sure some of the worst ones are stripped down for spares or de-activated.

Trevor please take your 303 to Andrew at Classic Arms for an evaluation before you start the conversion. There are certain models that are very rare and worth a lot of money. They may all look the same but a simple thing like markings or the factory where it was made can make a big difference

Roelof, Andrew at Classic and Trevor is more than a short drive from each other.

Sorry, but I have to double disagree. Been to Scaw more than once, and saw what went into those furnaces. And I am a very regular visitor to the Classic Arms safes.

What you see on auction is not everything.

Things people get for free they do not appreciate as much.

I am looking at option of exporting them to the US where they can end in a proper collection.

So hier is 'n paar fotos van die 303. Ek het hom in gevat en hy is nie veel van waarde nie omdat iemand sy loop met 2of 3cm verkort het met 'n yster saag, wie dit was en hoekom dit gedoen is, sal ons nooit weet nie. Het sy hout skoon en glad geskuur, en donkerder ge- stain en die voorste hout af gesny.
Hy gaan die week in vir die drill en tap vir die Leopuld VX2 scope en sy 2 stuk sintetiese kolf (kry nie hout kolf hier nie). Ons het die naweek met gom gaan skiet ( die gunsmit het alles mooi deur gegaan en wapen as veilig verklaar) en hy skiet baaaaie lekker en is nog baie akuraat!! Keanu het ook sy kans gevat, maar die geweer het om so 3 tree agter toe geskuif, alhoewel hy baie mooi skiet met sy 223 en my 270. Ons het met PMP 66 Mk7 patrone geskiet. Kan iemand dalk vir my verduidelik hoe werk die agterste versier as jy hom oop vou?

Hi Trevor

Yes it would not be worth much as a collector’s piece if someone had hacked off a section of the barrel.
You have done a very nice job with changing it to a usable gun. It really looks good.

The sights are marked of in yards. When it is folded down you get 200 to 500 yards.
To aim further you flip it up and them it is graded from 600 (marked 6) to 1700 yards (marked 17)

Sal dit 'n groot verskil maak in sy akuraatheid, as ek die loop so 5-8cm korter laat maak? Die ding lyk baie uit verhouding met daat lang loop.
