Very cool, but at 2,132 I can just look, no touch.

Other than the name stamped on it, what makes it different from the other speeds?

Having said that, I don't own any H&H rifles, or any English maker ones. A speed would one day he nice.

Lee Speeds are like a disease. I never used to think that much of them till I saw Patos Pape in the flesh and thought it was the most beautiful thing I had ever handled. I then found a battered old LSA Lee Speed that I love using and I have been on the lookout for a Speed by one of the name makers.The higher end ones have nice engraving on the magazine dust cover, trigger guard etc. Nice timber and for me the classic British lines that I love. Some have full length ribs, differing sight configurations etc. Of course you pay a premium for the name, but that is not exclusive to Lee Speeds.
