Preparedness Notes for Monday — August 9, 2021

August 9th, 1831was the birthday of James Paris Lee [1] (August 9, 1831 – February 24, 1904). He was a Scottish-Canadian and later American inventor and arms designer, best known for inventing the bolt action that led to the Lee-Metford and Lee-Enfield series of rifles. But most notably, Lee was the inventor of the spring-loaded detachable box magazine that has become standard in the vast majority of modern rifles and pistols, worldwide.

Starting today, in honor of James Paris Lee’s birthday, we are running a two-week sale at Elk Creek Company [2]. I’ve set sales prices with discounts from 5% to 25% on nearly all of my inventory. Note that because of a shopping cart software glitch, the special sale prices are showing up on the main pages, but not on the detail pages. So your total will be based on the sale price, regardless of what you see quoted at checkout. Get your order in soon, while the selection of antique guns is still good. Also note that we no longer take credit card payments, but we do take pre-1965 U.S. silver coins or inflated FRNs in the form of cash, checks, or money orders. (At my store, you may toggle between silver and FRN pricing.)

Today we present a review written by our redoubtable Field Gear Editor, Pat Cascio.
