|Thanks Mark. As I said, looks easy. I have held Springfield and Enfield rifles but never have had the experience of loading or firing one and,as in so many things,knowing what to do and actually doing it are two totally different things.
I like the point you make about the psychological aspect. I think that were I in line of battle with no time to load because the enemy were charging down on me that bit of pointed metal on the end of my rifle would be quite comforting.
