    He says it is a 1945. Probably the worst pictures ever.

    Probably a BSA not LSA. It also isn't a $10,000 dollar rifle as he claims, at least not with today's exchange rate!

    Apparently they originate at Luxdeftec. They have some interesting stuff on their site. LuxDefTec S.A.

    So are the pads sweated on now, or are they just screwed on with shims behind? They both look like they've been off?

    Not surprised it wasn't shown. Those screws have been butchered. The Engraving looks a little odd. What is that big blob of stuff to the right of the engraving?

    What's the serial number?

    How long have you had it, out of interest?

    It's missing the hardest part to find which is the thing that is going to devalue it the most, I would say.
