    In the British Army, I've seen the odd chromed bayonet. Usually SLR or No5 bayonets. But never seen rifle parts treated that way.

    York Guns used to sell those, but not for many years now. I'm down to my last "oddment" of 30 bullets. I wonder why they decided on a bullet of 186 grns?

    One of the pirates in The Golden Compass has a No5. There seems to be a lot of Mauser M71 (or similar) used in the film as well.

    For me it was "Victor" comic. I've still got a few of the Victor Annuals on my bookshelf. My son, who's 10, has no interest in them at all; he'd rather be playing games on his i-pad.

    The presence of UK proof markings would also point to it not being a "retained" service rifle. It's been disposed of by Ordnance into the trade, even if only to be exported.
