New Long Branch No4 Mk1
Just acquired a pristine Long Branch, Ontario, Canada-built NO. 4 Mk1, with bayonet. The bbl looks like it was made yesterday by Krieger as a pristine match grade bbl! I'm impressed!
Anyhow, I used one of these back in about 969,in the annual Dominion of Canada Rifle Assoc. (DCRA) cross-country shooting match, out @ 1000 meters, at the old long range in N. Vancouver, B.C., and achieved, to my considerable surprise, second in all of Canada (What? How'd that happen?), shooting a 10 shot 46" group (heck; at that range the frontpost covers/subtends a small pickup truck, for heaven's sake!). The rifle I used was, however, a Parker-Hale accurized version, still in .303, but with a slightly improved trigger, probably a hand-selected bbl, and an interesting rear tang sight, very "target", and an improved front target post sight.
Any ideas if such sights are still available to purchase anywhere? I'd very much like to convert/upgrade this new rifle and then have some fun shooting it. I'd probably be able to shoo, at best, an ≈250.00" group now...<sigh>
