Details

Made by BSA in 1943, this No.4 Mk.I rifle has the the rough external finish peculiar to rifles of this period. The parts are blued rather than painted, a finish adopted later in the war. The woodwork is walnut, and like the metal parts has a rougher finish than that normally found on British rifles.

This rifle has wear to the blued finish, and a number of marks, dings, and dents on the woodwork. The barrel shows wear and has pitting throughout.

This rifle has a number of rare wartime expediencies. The rifle has no half-cock, and the cocking piece has been made without the grooves normally found on this part. The trigger guard is of welded construction. The magazine has been converted from a Mk.III model. The front barrel band is of pressed metal construction.
