  • What did Santa bring for xmas??????

    Santa has been very good to me this year, I picked up a Lee Speed in original configuration and still fitted with long range sights. Also got a very nice BSA martini action 1885 in .450,Vic Gov markings, with a tiger pattern wood, bore excellent and differently a shooter.

    Also picked up my presentation gun, being a No1 Mk3, 1916 Lithgow which has bits that have been gold plated and it also has a gold plated bayonet to suit. It had come from a collector which stated that it was a presentation gun for a major when he left the army. Its been in two collectors hands for the past 30 years.

    Also when at my LGS, I scored a very nice 1952 Lithgow Model 55 carbine and whilst there I managed to score a 1918 Lithgow bayonet that he had on consignment, I couldn't leave it there.

    I will attempt to get some photos tomorrow if the weather is good enough.

    What did Santa bring you??????????

    Must say the 'presentation Lithgow' sounds intriguing Bathurst

    Don't think Santa's going to be at all forthcoming this year...since I've kinda beaten him to the punch for most of 2013 lol

      Yes, the presentation gun is something different. It took me two years to get it out of the last bloke. He only wanted it to go to a good home and he can come a look and play when ever he wants.

      The Lee Speed is also very interesting in that it has a small brass plate fitted to the butt, It has something WHITEHEAD engraved. I would guess that this is also a presentation gun for a rifle competition way back when you won guns and ammo for your shooting ability. It has no military markings at all and is in superb condition and would be a very good shooter.

    Still waiting on some things to come but I figure what ever I get caught with in the next few weeks will be my "xmas present"

                Had to take the matter into my own hands and get myself a new Daiwa Certate Spin Reel and about $400 worth of Japanese Lures plus about $300 worth of Terminal Tackle. Going fishing tomorrow for a couple of days and taking the Mrs and Kids up to Coconuts Resort in Cairns for a week in the New Year.

                Oh almost forgot got a new 50" Panasonic LCD/LED for my new back deck (paid $500 towards it myself). So I may get to watch a couple of hours TV a week now as the kids have taken over the other 2 TV's.

                Santa won't be coming to me.... I know I shouldn't say it but I'm beginning to wonder if he even exists anymore... it's not quite xmas day yet though so I should give him the benefit of the doubt I guess...
