Oh no!!! I've just seen a. 303 SMLE.....
On Evoke and it's only $280. And what's more it's gas powered.

Must resist

OMG! I would love that, looking at the practical side, is it any good?

Not at all practical, just historic, but then so is a bow and arrow

I've had a look at it, the red tones on the wood stain doesn't look very good but I know you could fix that and of course paint over the orange tip Wink I'd love to see one in the flesh especially as it's the only rifle I've fired.

But then again is any single shot gun practical for Airsoft ? A few mths ago I'd say no but now after three scurmish'es running only semi I'd say yes it could be , stick the right scope on it and it'll be sex in your hands !  affraid

Single shot is defo the way to go, I can't believe how few BB's I've been using the last couple of games Wink
Has anybody thought about getting a Sterling?

Now if I get a Sterling what magazine pouches can I buy? There don't seem to be a specific Sterling ones for sale.

Why yes yes I have , every time I see it !!!!!!!!!
The Aussie pouches would work ok (there the ones I use for my mp5 mags) BUT to be true to real use it would be bog standard 58 ammo pouches , nothing special !
As to the 'as used by the SAS' pouches you see , utter bollox ! No such thing ever existed ! If you see an SAS guy with those type of pouch there either very old sten pouches or mp5 pouches .
Don a bit of research in to the smle and Apparantly it needs a shed full of work to make scurmish'able but if you do it's a right corker of a sniper , bit like the real one then !

You've got the mag pouches already you may as well use them Wink
It does look like a good RIF, I could see it being very useful in the wooded area of Porishead and Cribbs.

I understand it's a copy of the British Sterling and the other Sterling RIF is a copy of the Canadian version, so get one now!

As much as i now want one it would ALL depend on whether i can sell one of my other gatts , i have a sopmod i can sell if i want , plus ive a couple of complete uppers i could sell as well so means i could advertise it with a DMR or standard M4 set up !
