RE should send you a free bike just for all the good advertising! Maybe a 650 or a Himalayan!

Speaking of Enfields and big calibers, I have three reproduction Enfields in .58 caliber.
The ones I have are the 1853, 3 band rifled musket, the 1858, 2 band rifle and the 1861 Royal Artillery Carbine.

They were all made by Parker Hale in England back in the 1970's, using the original Enfield gauges to assure authenticity.

I was into a Zouave 58 calibre rifle in my teen years. I would install a 22 blank in the nose of the Minie bullet so it would pop on the target. Silly stuff!   ;D

Sadly, I have no Enfield rifles.......but easy enough to remedy. I do have a near pristine 1906 Swedish Mauser (6.5x55) and another one that was sporterized. I love the caliber.

Mosin-Nagant 7.62 x 54 here.
Ammo's CHEAP, yet corrosive as hell, but as long as I clean and oil it after every use it's a hell of a rifle.

Enfields just go together well.  ;D

Here's my ones.
Nothing better than a nice putt on an RE.
It's a serene way to travel at an unhurried pace.
