Looks very nice but needs a strip of rubber, felt or suede to protect the rifle where it is resting. If it?s not done yet and you haven?t gotten that part finished disregard my post.

Very nice Major.
You need to learn to like all the little everday things like a sip of good whiskey, a soft bed, a glass of buttermilk,  and a feisty old gentleman like myself

Woat???  No SMLE #4??  Sacrilege.  Atza "Must Have."   Said by the guy whom doesn't own, collect, nor play with BAM or "others."  Although I could reacquaint myself with my old friend Dragunov.  I don't have one of those either (drat).

Not a Mk 4   ... but  I do have a 1917 SMLE Mk3*

None of those guns in either set are mine ... these are set up for others

Yes leather might look very good

My LGS asked for the stand and I used birch plywood....

On mine I used 1" black ABS plastic and here is my collection so mounted
