  7. Rifle Received

    I now have the rifle--I'm pretty happy with it. Wood is all original walnut, in good shape. Seems to have a shellac on it, but I know the US Marines did that with their rifle stocks in the tropics to...

  10. My Anzac Day Lithgow 1915 Range Rifle--Comments? Which Aperture Sight is Correct?

    Looking for the thoughts of some of our experts on Australian rifles.

    The GunBroker auction for this rifle coincidentally ended yesterday, on Anzac Day.

    That's a nicer property stamp than mine.

    Mine also has a 38/300 stamping next to the barrel on the left side. Redundant given the manufacturer's barrel engraving.

    Great looking pistol.

    Repro Labels

    Given the advice received from the group, I decided that the 1976 labels are probanly repros rather than genuine, so I reproduced the example I had a photo of.

    I think they came out well, and I...

    Replacement Chest

    The chest that's with that rifle is so far off that it doesn't even seem to be an attempt to deceive. It's just a wooden box made up to house that particular rifle, and then painted green. There's...

    1976 L42A1 Transit Chest Label?

    I'm restoring an L42A1 transit chest in rough shape. As mine has no lid label, I'm making a reproduction of one.

    Fake?! Anybody think it could be genuine?

    Thanks for the opinions. Does anybody have a contrary one--could it be legit?

    I'll even be happy with a DRP mount, it's not wartime, but it's made to standard.

    Thanks,
