In the wake of the riots happening throughout the United Kingdom it seems like the above poster could be put to good use again.  Too bad England doesn’t allow their citizens to properly defend themselves.

The “Send A Gun To Defend A British Home” poster was used during WWII in the United States to help our British allies defend their country from a potential invasion by the Nazis.

It’s not uncommon to see odd weapons in third world countries where military, police forces and sometimes civilians or militias have had to create their weapons with what they had at hand. Former Ranger Jack Murphy over at Kitup worked with a member of  the Iraqi of the SWAT team who put together this Frankengun. If you look closely you’ll see the hodgepodge of guns used to make this contraption.

It looks like the rifle was based off of an AK-47 receiver and makes use of a PKM barrel, Browning Hi-Power pistol grip and a cheap BB gun scope. A standard AK wasn’t good enough apparently.

Canadian Rangers Retire Their Lee-Enfields

The Lee-Enfield rifle chambered in the .303 cartridge was the rifle of choice of the British Empire for a number of years, and is still in service in many parts of the now former British Empire. The Canadian Rangers who help defend Canada’s Arctic territory have been using the venerable bolt-action Enfield since they formed in 1947.

Earlier models had been in service with the British army since 1895, according to the Juno Beach Centre, which commemorates the effort made by all Canadians during the Second World War. On its website, the centre noted that during the First World War, Canadian troops threw away their government-issued Ross rifles in favour of Lee-Enfields they picked up on the battlefield.

Thompson said after consulting with the Rangers, it was agreed that the new rifle would be in the 7.62mm/ .308 Winchester calibre, as this was best suited to meet the Rangers’ requirements. He noted that “.308 Winchester refers to a specific cartridge that is very similar to the 7.62 x 51 (NATO) cartridge, and is made by several companies.”
