Beautiful collection. If only they were available here in the US without having to pay the preban transferrable premium

.... in the mid-80s here a NIB L1A1 could be bought direct from Lithgow for $1450 in the box. BCF barrel was a no cost upgrade. I could buy a excellent condition one for about $1K. My factory L1A1F1 cost me $2k. An all Winchester M14 $900. Those days are long gone now though.....how is my adoption paperwork coming along paco ?
