Civillian Service Rifle – Urban Contact Match U.K.

The MPGS Gurkha on guard is positively beaming. He looks like the happiest man in Pirbright, and there is nothing he would rather be doing this early Sunday morning, than check in 100 civilians onto his base.

AR15 On a diet part 2 – Rainier Arms Evo handguard and muzzle brake testing.

A glimpse into the world of CSR (Civilian Service Rifle)

It is a surprisingly warm November morning. I tug on my DPM jacket and wonder if it’s too warm for this- I pull my short magazine Lee Enfield (SMLE) out of its slip, stuff some ammunition in my jacket pocket, and walk over to the group of people milling around.  At this point it starts……
